Retouched photographs help create an elegant, streamlined final product, much like editing syllables to form a haiku or removing all "Y" words from the dictionary. Airbrush flip-flopping vowels with today's Groupon: for $149, you get a one-hour photo shoot and six retouched digital images from Steve Schroeder Photography (up to a $480 value). The photo shoot can take place in-studio or on-location within a 30-mile radius of the studio. On-location shoots outside of a 30-mile radius are available for an additional fee.

Based out of a studio built in the 1880s, Steve Schroeder applies skills honed over decades of photographic studies to snap subjects in dynamic poses. Before scheduling a session, Steve meets with each client to brainstorm the objectives of the shoot, helping them choose a fitting location to match their personalities. Steve uses his Victorian Village studio to its full advantage, photographing clientele against a backdrop of ornate architecture and blossoming gardens. Picturesque patrons can choose to hold the one-hour photo shoot at a nearby location of their choice, like Washington Park, Wesleyan College, or climbing out of open manhole covers. At the completion of the photo shoot, snapped subjects can review an online gallery of 30–60 pictures and select the six that minimize glare from passing protocol droids to be retouched and burned into perpetuity on an image disc. In addition, Groupon holders can receive 50% off prints purchased within two weeks of the sitting and 20% off at their next shoot.

Steve Schroeder Photography

After graduating from college with a degree in industrial photography, Steve Schroeder honed his shutterbug skills at Houston's Gittings Studio before opening his own studio in 1987. Eight years later Steve and his family relocated to Macon, where he constructed his new studio in the Hardeman-Hatcher house, a Victorian Village dwelling built in the 1880s. The abode's elaborate architecture and flashbulb-wielding ghosts set the backdrop for many of Steve's portraiture sessions. These sessions always commence with a consultation, during which he helps clients determine which outfits and location best complement their style. Any image snapped in studio, on location, or at weddings—Steve has covered nearly 1,000 nuptial ceremonies—undergoes basic retouching. Patrons can also elicit Steve's services for framing or restoration needs, watercolor cards, or to commission the studio's resident artist to create an oil painting of a favorite image from their shoot (turn around time of six–eight weeks).
