What You'll Get
Because you replaced all your normal cameras with fish-eye cameras during the height of aquarium popularity in the 1980s, it's time to outsource your photographic needs. Today's Groupon gets you a one-hour in-studio photo session ($175 value) along with 15 basically enhanced digital images on CD ($225 value) and 25% off all printed prints from This is iT Photography in Santa Clara for $35. This package is your opportunity to upgrade the framed family photos that have been hanging in your parents’ home for the past 450 months.
There’s always an excuse to say cheese: you’re engaged, you’re pregnant, you graduated high school, or you're doing all three at once. Owned by the wedded Marc (winner of Photographer of the Year Awards from international photography groups) and Phoebe Aviles, This is iT delivers high-quality shots from skilled eyeballs. Even if you’re not commemorating a major milestone, you might need a professional headshot to further your career. Actresses, authors, musicians, clowns, dancers, comedians, and other performers can all benefit from classy prints. Stop by the studio alone or with a group for a carefully coordinated photo shoot, or spend an extra $110 to move your session outdoors or on location for a two-to-three-hour round of photography. Unfortunately, you cannot shoot your Perfect Storm-themed wedding, because this Groupon is not valid for wedding photography.
The fruits of your modeling labor come in the form of 15 digital images with basic touch-ups that are printer-ready on CD. You can also go beyond the scope of your Groupon by ordering prints from your shoot with a 25% discount. Fill your wallet with a charming shot of your charmed countenance (originally $25 for eight wallet-sized copies), or pack your gigantic wallet with a sturdy 5"x7" print (originally $25).
Studio photography lets you capture your overflowing glamour, the look of love between you and your betrothed, or anything else that merits becoming a tangible memory. Now that you aren’t riddled with acne or plagued with a six-year-old’s gummy smile, go on and surprise your folks with a more up-to-date snapshot just in time for Family Valentine's Day.

About This is it Photography
Every year, photographer Marc Aviles has to limit the number of weddings he photographs to 20. That magic number allows him to take a meticulous approach in capturing both photojournalistic and posed photographs during one of life’s most momentous occasions. This is it Photography's wedding-photography process, which begins with an in-depth consultation and ends with photo-album production in Italy, reflects a deep respect for each client's vision. While snapping shots, photographers zoom in on sparkling rings and colorful bouquets to capture the subtle details of the ceremony before panning out to take pictures of the couple and guests. Marc also performs engagement photography sessions, which preserve romantic images at a cherished locale, such as a beach, a blossoming cherry tree, or the restaurant where lovers shared their first heimlich maneuver.
This is it Photography's talent for creating narratives through photographs has earned them several accolades throughout their career. Though they limit their annual wedding presence, they always welcome families, pets, newborns, and models into their studio for specialized portraits. Whimsical infant photos pair babies with studio props, including a miniature claw-foot tub and giant rubber duckies. Alternatively, outdoor shoots supply sunny backdrops for candid pictures. This is it Photography also rents out photo booths, which print sheets of smiling faces with custom event logos.
