I'm HIGHLY dissatisfied with Glamour Shots. I bought the $19 deal for Glamour Shots from Groupon that includes make up and hair 2-3 wardrobe changes, 40-50 shots, one 8x10 print and one DVD slide show. Warning: This is ONLY a good deal as long as you purposely shoot in 1 outfit only, and are very decisive about the 1 shot that they will give you as a 8x10 print. Do not otherwise bring more than 1 outfit to shoot in or let them talk you into shooting in more than 1 outfit or in shooting in a wrap that they have in their studio. Otherwise, you will end up with a bunch of beautiful photos taken by them that you may not be able to afford or willing to pay for once they present their overly expensive photo packages that they will attempt to pressure you to buy.
Be prepared for them to super pressure you into shooting more than one outfit though and into buying their expensive photo packages and over flattering you with a ton of compliments in order to stay on your good side.
Their packages range between the least expensive $330 after taxesfor a CD of low resolution/low quality photos, it's $600-$4,000 after taxes for very few prints offered in their packages and some of their specialty frames. They try to get you to take one of the most expensive packages first as if those are the only packages before they lower down to the lowest expensive packages that they won't tell you about until they see you hesitant to pay for the higher packages. To pay per single image instead of buying one of their over priced packages, it's $69 plus taxes (around $75-$77 or so after taxes) for a single 8x10 print or for two 5x7 prints of the same image. They also charge $9.99 for shipping of the photos that you still have to pick up from their studio! To have your photos mailed directly to your home is $19.99.
They know that most people are going to want their nice looking photos as without a doubt the photos they take look great but are way over priced. They will offer you an in-store credit line as well to add extra pressure to getting you to purchase their expensive photo packages with only a few prints. I have gotten excellent photos, prints and images out of local photographers and photography studios for way lower prices with tons of prints and images.
I didn't expect this when I bought the groupon deal as most groupon deals I've have bought are usually up front, honest, and are overall great deals, except this one apparently! I left Glamour Shots feeling awful after spending 4.5 hours there to get the photos taken and for them to edit a few and the make you wait before you sit with them to view the photos.
You have no privacy when they go over the photos with you, as anyone can walk by and view your photos on the large TV screen they present your photos on the wall. Even the employees will walk by and comment. Worse is, you don't know who else is seeing your photos when you aren't there, as they did not hesitate to pull up other clients sexy Boudoir photos right in front of me on the screen during my session with them in which we were supposed to be going over my photos but we were interrupted by
another employee about another client's missing photos!
They kept asking me, well if you can't afford the packages we have than how much money do you have? What the heck. They wouldn't even tell me what the package deals were before having me pick out photos because they want you to pick out as many photos as possible so they can try to sell you as many of the expensive packages
and prints. At the end of the session I had to walk away from all my gorgeous photos (and they were fabulous
for sure with the hair, make up and outfits I had) as I couldn't stomach the thought of paying so much money for
so few prints knowing that I couldn't even make extra copy prints later, as they make sure to discourage any
photo copying being done at walmart or walgreens because they water mark any prints with their huge logo all over the prints. So you won't be able to make copy prints for cheaper else where at all.
The DVD slideshow is worthless too as I found out from some other clients after my photo session that the photos on the DVD have their huge logo all over them and the music in the DVD slideshow is awful.
Also you can't request any prints to be ordered once your DVD and 8x10 arrives by mail as they tell you they delete all your photos unless you purchase one of their expensive packages from them. They use all of these awful pressure tactics to get you to cave in to buy their expensive packages.
The floors are dirty is what I discovered once they had me lay on the floor to shoot in a wrap (because I told them that I didn't have any other outfits I wanted to shoot in after my second outfit and once again they pressured me to shoot a third set by doing a wrap they had). Very gross and uncomfortable.
The very sexy boudouir photos they took of me in the wrap and my lingerie bottoms on their filthy floor somehow came up missing by the way and when I asked them about them they tried to brush me off quickly by telling me that they will contact me as soon as they locate those particular photos. They never contacted me about it.
Being that Glamour Shots owns the copyrights to all photos unless you pay $140 per image to own the copyrights and images on CD, they may be selling the sexier images anywhere online!
One of my outfits was sexy and they failed to tell me that they had robes and gowns in their dressing room (which I had no access too because they only have 1 and another client was in it forever, so I had to change cloths in their restroom which had no hangers or shelves to put my wardrobe and other stuff). So I was exposed to others when I hesitantly had to walk from the restroom where I changed into the shooting area. Other clients (male and female) were standing around looking at me in my sexy outfit that I was to be shot in and it was so uncomfortable when it didn't have to be if they had offered me a robe to cover up (I tried my best to cover up on my own and to quickly go in the shooting room area and quickly back out!
They also gave me a print out of tiny images from my session as a reference of the shots taken in my sesson and my husband and I noticed that there were photos of lady from another client's lingerie photos of her in her lingerie!
