Marco Island, FL (PRWEB) March 30, 2007
For many, the best vacation souvenirs are the pictures. In anticipation of its own $187-million-renovation photo shoot, Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort is making it possible for travelers to go home from their Marco Island vacation with a professional photograph. The Family Beach Portrait Package, available now through September 29, includes overnight accommodations in an island-view room and a photo session on the beach, a $125 value; package pricing starts at only $169 per night.*
Award-winning shutterbug Peter Berec, who has photographed families on Marco Island for 10 years, will capture guests' best profile in the South Florida sunshine. Available prior to heading home, snapshot packages range from wallet to 30"x40" prints and start at $199. In addition, renowned local artist Stephen Muldoon will work with Berec to transform photos into hand-painted oil-on-canvas family portraits. Starting at $799, the 16"x20" oil portraits will be shipped to guests within 30 days.+ To view sample portraits, please visit http://www.marcophotography.com and http://www.muldoonart.com.
The Naples beach resort is gearing up for its own photo shoot this spring, which will showcase the results of the largest capital investment of any Marriott property. The massive nine-figure project encompassed virtually every inch of the world-class beachfront resort, including the creation of the 24,000-square-foot Spa at Marco Island, a total overhaul of the Quinn's and Tiki pools and the addition of the 10,000-square-foot Palms Ballroom.
