“Good photos but long wait”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

The photo quality was good, but wait was excessive. It is a photo shop and a souvenir store. You get the feeling that the wait is so you will buy other things from the store..

“decent price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

My husband bugged me to do this, so I went along with it. It was fun dressing up, but the angle is definitely not flattering if you have even a hint of a double chin. So, yes, I am a little on the chubby side, but it is possible to take flattering pictures of chubby people if you take your time and help the person pose. The photographer didn't tell us she was taking pictures of just my hubby and me, or we would have played up the part a little more. We assumed our son was in all of the pictures. I felt that the photog could have experimented with poses a little more and actually come up with something a little more flattering or something a little more fun that actually elicited true smiles. I didn't like the end result because of the camera angle and facial expressions, but we had already changed out of costume, so I didn't want to ask for retakes and don't even know if that was an option. We didn't feel rushed at all and we came out with some nice pictures of our son, along with a family photo that will hang in our garage because that seems like the most fitting place for such an unflattering picture. The photog, took the extra pictures of our son, which I am sure was to get us to spend more money. We did, but the picture of my 9 year old is gorgeous so we couldn't pass it up.

Good price and granddaughters liked the dress up. It was fun to try different costumes on and we had a real good laugh.

“Pictures were good, not great, but good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

We were the only ones there at the time. No wait for us and no one was waiting. Still she only took about 20 minutes total with us. Got clothes on and snap, snap, snap...done. Also had a younger boy showing us the photos on the computer screen. Quickly clicked from picture to picture, but couldn't put two photos side by side on the screen for comparison. Kind of pricey....$30 for (2) 8x10's which had to be the same photo, then you could pick any pose for $12 per sheet plus tax. Pictures are printed on cheap paper.
