Witch Pix is a must for any Salem visitor. The experience is truly what you make of it. If you try to disagree with the photographers or fuss over every small detail, you're going to spoil your own fun. If you take their suggestions and follow their lead (they do hundreds of shoots per month, they literally know what they're doing), you're going to have a blast. The costume selection is huge and the props/backdrops keep growing every time I visit. The owner aims to please and the staff truly have fun with what they do.

Doing the witch pictures was so much fun! Picking out your costume and getting all dressed up makes you feel like a kid again. My group got to pick what each of our favourite colour was for our main dress and then matched our caps according to our dress. There was a large selection of colours and various dresses in each colour. The caps were absolutely beautiful and we all wanted to take ours home! Finally you get a hat to match your entire outfit. It was so much fun!

The costumes fit all sizes as they tie up in the back, like a hospital gown, and the cap covers your back so no one sees the back of the dress.

The backdrops are absolutely beautiful and well designed!

There is a sitting fee for each person and then you can buy how many pictures of each you want and pick your size. Or you can buy the rights to all the pictures for a rate allowing you to bring them to any photo lab and do them yourself but still have to pay all the sitting fees. My group just paid the sitting fee and bought the cd. When at the cash we just got the fee split 4 ways then later brought our CD to Wal Mart to get the photos.

A great souvenir and so much fun getting dressed and doing the scenes with you friends/family.

My husband and I went to have our photos taken. When we walked in the store, we were greeted by two very unprofessional individuals, who were much more concerned with talking about who they were texting than the customers. It was quickly explained that there was a sitting fee of $7. No big deal. The CHEAPEST picture was $27. However, we figured it was our souvenir, so we went for it.

The photographers helped us into witch costumes, sort of rushing us along. They did have cool costumes, though, and there was some choice as far as color, so that was neat. Then it was time to take photos. The photographer looked bored, like we were just taking up so much of his time. He gave us instructions here and there. At the end, we were sat down at a computer to review our photos. We were hoping that we would fall in love with most of them and then just buy the whole CD. Not the case. Most of the pictures were actually blurry. Very disappointing, especially since there was a sitting fee. I expect that with professional photos, however, these photos were far from professional.

We ended up getting 3 wallets, because we weren't going to pay $27 per 5 x 7. We went up to pay, and the lady that checked out us charges us $7/EACH for the sitting fee. I didn't argue, but I wish it was explained a little more clearly in the beginning that the sitting fee was charged for each of us. So, for over $45, we have a few pretty cool pictures. They're awesome. I will cherish them forever, but I don't think I would do it again.

A Must for anyone who wants the ultimate souvenir from Salem!
My husband and I made an appointment and we were greeted by a team of fun folks ready to transform us into something magical.
Their selection of costumes and hats is awesome, so you can be a Glam witch, or funny or mystical. for the guys they can do traditional wizards to Game of Thrones inspired fur and swords.
Ladies arrive with your makeup done for photos, and they do allow you to bring your own hat or a small prop.
The sets and their accessories such as wands, swords, brooms make the photos exciting.
If you come with a fun attitude the Photographer will suggest the poses and mood.
Everyone was very nice and the selection of digital shots was more than expected. It was worth the price !

Well worth the price! The selection of costumes was fun and the amount of photos was great. We opted for the digital package .
My husband, who usually doesn't like to do costume photos, got into it , and the results were awesome. funny, seriously silly , creative and actually very well done.
Nice soft filtering for great skin tone and texture for this old gal ( or was it magic?) LOL.
The team there was friendly and didnt make us feel rushed as we moved from one set to another for different backgrounds.
The addition of a fan to make us look windblown on the broom set was awesome!
I had even brought my own witch hat covered in fall leaves to wear and they had beautiful capes to select to go with it. All very well thought out and organized.
Huge thanks to the Photographer and team. One of the best parts of our day in Salem!!

While in Salem we decided to go to Witch Pix for a witch photo session. It was so much fun. They were great in helping pick out the perfect witching attire. The photographer worked with us to get some fun photos. We ended up buying a thumb drive with all 96 photos on it. It wasn’t cheap but not terribly expensive either. We both enjoyed it more than anything else of our trip.

My daughter and I did a photo shoot during our day trip and had so much fun! The staff assists you with picking out your outfit, and are very helpful. The clothing and accessories are wonderful! We truly enjoyed ourselves. The photos were great, we ended up getting them all on a USB. Priceless memories!
