The best photographers rise to the top by practicing, while second-best photographers rise to the top by shooting blackmail photos of the first-best. Get snapped by a champ with today's Groupon: for $75, you get a 30-minute in-studio portrait session, one 11"x14" photograph, and eight wallet-size photos at Studio 3 Productions in St. Charles (a $225 value).
The talented photographers of Studio 3 Productions artfully capture treasured memories in a modern, 4,000-square-foot studio laden with backdrops and scenery to customize shoots. During the 30-minute memory-preserving session, subjects can showcase orthodontic improvements solo or bring along up to seven friends or family members to show off matching retainers. The pet-friendly studio invites photogenic family pets to flash canines at the photographer or snap a few self-portraits to showcase at doggy-daycare show-and-tell. A bevy of backdrops, from exposed brick to inky black, and an arsenal of props customize the snapshots. The included 11"x14" portrait jazzes up drab walls and tabletops, and the eight wallet-sized photographs give lonely driver's licenses a new set of faces with which to converse. Appointments are available Monday through Thursday from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Though not included in today's Groupon, Studio 3 Productions boasts reasonably priced custom framing in hundreds of colors and sizes. A one-stop shop for the newly engaged set, the photography studio keeps a dizzying array of DJs, videographers, and mail-order groomsmen on hand.
Studio 3 Productions
Studio 3 Productions documents and enhances weddings with an arsenal of services that includes photography, videography, DJing, and lighting. A team of photographers and videographers carefully documents each wedding-day tradition, from the exchange of rings to the firing of the flower girl out of a cannon, producing keepsakes that range from simple scrapbooks to high-tech films replete with montages and other special effects. Meanwhile, the company’s LED lighting can add pizzazz to receptions, with curious customers able to view a small-scale simulation in advance at the studio.
Alternatively, portrait sessions at Studio 3’s studio or on location capture authentic flashes of subjects’ personalities as they pose solo, with loved ones, or with pets. After shoots, the studio’s framing services accent prints, equipping subjects with a high-quality wall decoration to replace their collection of unpaid parking tickets.
