Before photography, the only way people could preserve their most treasured memories was by forcing everyone around them to stand completely still for days at a time. Today's Groupon presents a less complicated option: for $49, you get a photo shoot (up to a $30 value), one 8”x10” print (a $79 value), two 3”x5” prints (a $66 value), eight wallet-sized prints (a $60 value), and one digital image on a CD (up to a $250 value) from Yuen Lui Studio (a $485 total value). This Groupon can be redeemed at Yuen Lui Studio's indoor location in Costa Mesa or outdoors at Aliso Beach, TeWinkle Park, Mile Square Park, or Irvine Regional Park.
Yuen Lui Studio, a family-owned photography business specializing in individual and family portraits, has converted memorable poses into photographic heirlooms since 1947. In the 20- to 30-minute photo session, indoor souls can be captured by one of four photographers at the studio or in the Californian wilds, where nature provides a backdrop of gentle waves at the beach or verdant trees and snow-cone-peddling badgers at a park. Up to eight people can appear in the shoot (additional subjects incur an extra cost), providing the ideal opportunity to upgrade framed family daguerreotypes from the 19th century. After an agreeable shot has been selected, it will be reproduced in one large 8”x10” print, two desk-ornamenting 3”x5” prints, and eight wallet-sized prints, as well as a comically large wallet-sized CD containing a digital copy.
