The people are lovely, very friendly. The "stylists" are make up artists and were very good at make up but not hair and so not really the total experience they sell. there is also a fair bit of hanging about waiting for turn to go in for photo's. We had fun and I liked some of the photo's but I wouldn't go back.

It was a very disappointing experience. Out of 5 staff, only 1 was professional. The other ones completely ignored me. They only looked at me when they did my hair and make up or when I asked a question. They talked to the other customers fine, built a relationship with them. I was asked folloowing questions: What I would like to drink. How do I take my tea? What make up do I use and wether or not I was alergic to something. I have to say, the tea was lovely. As soon as the other customers left, the staff started talking in their language. Not very welcoming. The photoshoot itself was alright. Nothing personal though. You could tell that I was just another customer. The lady who showed me the pictures was very professional, although quite pushy. Which I perfectly understand. The Factory afterall, is no charity event. I forgot my credit card so I olny could pay partially. However I was assured that someone would call me on the 30/11 to take the rest of the payment. This I really appreciated. Upon leaving I said my good byes and thank yous but again, no comment. I was being completely ignored. Very disappointed. Not going again. And I'm going to discourage my friends from going there.

horrible makeup! bad hairstyle! and the worst photographer! I don't recommend anyone to go there! they don't have an artistic view to photography... plus, the photographer left me during the session for an hour to conduct his own business. very rude! I'm so disappointed.

I found the girl who worked on reception (who also did my hair) to be less than attentive and not very friendly. The make-up lady I had was nice as was our photographer - who made me feel very comfortable - however, I did not feel he gave me as much time as my friend who he shot for longer each time we changed outfits. The viewing man gave me the feeling he just wanted us out of there - though he was polite during our viewing. But from word go it was very hard to actually book a sitting time as the reservations lady wouldn't respond to my e-mails and when she did clearly did not read what I had asked her to do. Overall, not as nice an experience as I have had with other studios. I understand we were the last shoot of the day, and that another booking was an hour late which pushed us back. But regardless should have been treated the same as anyone else. Certainly not what I expected having read the ad when buying the voucher. I am greatful to the lovely make-up lady and photographer - they were the redeeming features of our time there.

Thanks so much to all the staff, what an amazing experience. They made us so welcome. So impressed with the makeup we didn't want to take it off. What a transformation :-) the photographer made our pics so so good, wanted them all! Definitely recommended and will be back, thanks so much x

The prices that I paid are the prices that I can find on the marked with no need of using groupon. It was not a scam but I was attracted by the low advertised price and there is not a deal a significant promotion or even real discount if compared with the market. I came back with some good photos but also with the sensation that I had been trapped.
