This won't be very long, But i recently went to a wedding show and glamour shots was there. they were giving out free hair and make up sessions so i signed up not knowing what i was in for.
They called me to have me set up an appoint but i had to put down $20 dollar deposit for my "free session". This is when i should of ran but love makes a girl do stupid things. I decided to go to glamour shots to get photos done for my boyfriend for valentines day. Everything started well, the hair and make up were beautiful and the pictures turned out great! well most of them but that's irrelevant.
The problems started after it was time to pick out a package and pricing...the sales associate was somewhat cryptic at first about prices first creating collages and doing touch ups but would not tell me prices. After much time wasting i told her what i actually had planned for the pictures i just wanted 8x10's to put in a book.
then she told me a price it would be over 720 dollars! i was awestruck! i intended on spending under a hundred dollars and had absolutely no idea how expensive this actually was when i started or i never would have gone. I loved the pictures too much and the girls were kept telling me how much he would love them and how good they looked and i ended up stuck with a 470 dollar photography package with (6) 8x10's a slideshow and proofs thats right 6 actual printed pictures!
By the time i got home i had completely changed my mind, my mother called the store because i was too distraught to talk to them. They told her there was nothing i could do. I had signed a contract even though it was 1 hour maybe less since i signed it could not be changed! i didn't even want to end it just change it! i was not allowed a grace period to terminate or renegotiate the contract. which i was under the impression was illegal but they said otherwise and said there was absolutely no way to back out.
The manager said i was explained the contract and the details entailing it, i was not they too busy asking questions about my personal life, i don't mind them being nice but the manager cant turn it on me when it was not explained i understood the price but had made a rash desicion and was told i was completely unable to back out. appparently rather soon somebody else from the company will be contacting me, i cant wait im just hoping for a renegotiation i just want my proofs and slideshow. im just warning other women... and hoping for answer and to let them know what can happen.... you cant back out cant change anything without corporate runaround be warned
