Couples Makeover Photoshoot Session
I bought this for my boyfriend since we had been together 4 years, and although we hadn't done anything like it we had a really great time.
We went to the Dorchester location and I had my make-up and hair done nicely whilst drinking a cup of tea (though Buck-fizz was offered!) then we changed into our 1st outfit. You can bring 3-4 and throughout the photoshoot you can change to vary the photos.
All of the photos were well taken and some were really lovely, so was very difficult to choose one to take for free. In the end we chose to put 10 on a disc for a decent price!
Well recommended, really chuffed with the experience and great people.

Both me and my partner were very apprehensive about using this company for the photoshoot as after I had been given the voucher people said the company were very unprofessional and out to rip you off.
Our experience luckily was amazing.
We visited the Manchester branch and had a lovely day, even the boyfriend enjoyed himself! The staff were lovely and considerate, make up was fantastic, photographer was lovely and chatty. Fully enjoyed ourselves posing away.
Only two gripes we had were that my boyfriends hairstylist wasn't very nice - my boyfriend has long hair so wanted some experimenting done but the hairdresser ignored him and just straightened his hair, which did look nice but its still not the point. Secondly they were running extremely late on the day and we had a bus to catch, which meant we were hurried into choosing our photos, but this couldn't have been helped.
Yeah you do get pressurised into buying more photos than the free one, so expect it, but they do come down in price - so just say no a few times and they'll soon cave! We bough 5 for £90 as well as the free one - and they only took a week to come - so very happy. Wish we had bought more now!
All in all - this is an amazing treat and would defiantly do it again and so would the boyfriend - lovely day, felt like the most beautiful couple in the world!!

Lovely, relaxing day out
After much apprehension at the attention being on me and my partner for the day, I was relieved to find that the whole experience very much put us at ease.
The day started with a consultation about the looks we wished to achieve. I was then able to have my make up done (which looked very nice!) and stayed on throughout the rest of the day. Whilst my partner has his hair done. And then we swapped. Don't worry men - they only put a bit of powder on you to stop the shine!
We were then called in for the shoot. We had nearly 200 photographs taken on different back drops and different outfit changes! But obviously, this posed the problem of which photographs to choose.
I went in with the frame of mind of receiving just the complimentary print (because why else would we need anymore?) ha. But, oh you do! All of the photos were absolutely beautiful. And as you would expect from a professional salon, photographs were quite expensive. However, they are willing to do some great deals ..especially if you buy the photographs on a disc (which means you own the copy right to the photograph) and also do deals that mean photographs can be paid for interest free for up to a year .. which suited us fine!
Overall, the day was extremely relaxing and pleasant .. and they really weren't pushy for you to buy their products! My partner really enjoyed it as well and we are both so happy with the pictures we walked away with. Most of which made our families burst into tears because they were so beautiful.
Really really recommend to capture a special time in your life.

A Perfect Day Out
Upon arrival we were greeted with a pleasant welcome and offered drinks which was a nice touch.
There was a bit of waiting but not too much and they certainly didn’t forget about us!
The makeup artists were lovely! when they called us over they talked us through what they were doing (handy to pick up a few tips there!) and asked if we had any preference on style etc they also styled our hair.
Finally we were called into the photo shoot where he got a mixture of photo styles and looks. we had 4 outfit changes and could of had our hair or make up adjusted if we wanted. The Photographer was lovely and made us feel so at ease as we had never done anything like this before.
we were called into a small room at the end with the editor which is where we choose the photos we wanted (TIP: If you get the chance to purchase some photos before the day DO IT - the costs add up!!)
Definitely a lovely day out that i would recommend to anyone!! Worth the money & the photos are memories you can keep!
Thank you NewID Studios & Thank you Buyagift.co.uk!!
