By far one of the best studio sessions I have experienced. The photographer was very easy to work with and the make up and hair artists knew their stuff!! So happy with the session.

Vanity Studios are brilliant. They made the whole experience amazing and relaxing. The final photos were great quality.

The experience in the studio was really great but immediately afterwards there is a 'heavy sell' in an office and you must know what you want before you go in there because they are extremely persuasive.
I waited for my USB stick (with chosen photos on) to arrive and it just never did and I had to chase them up for it - it turned out that a temp they hire had forgotten to send it: how unprofessional! I still don't have it but have my fingers that it will arrive by special delivery tomorrow!
They had also promised to email me my photos but these also never arrived and again, it was down to me to chase that up (it may have been a Wetransfer issue like they said but the studio should make sure that customers receive their photographs - this is what greatly let them down). After going there several times before I think this was my last time - I hate inefficiency and carefree attitudes when it is my money being spent and 8 days later I finally get an email with my pics...

Great service from start to finish!
Sharon warmly welcomed us and offered drinks. Listened to my request re my hair and did it to my expectation.
Lilia listened to what I would like to achieve with regards to my makeup- nothing was too much with my request!
Both Sharon & Lilia shared our sense of humour and therefore had a good laugh! They even took the time to say goodbye to us before they left for the day whilst we were still having the photo shoot- a nice touch!
Bernardo, our photographer, is so professional. He helped us with our choice of clothes and was so patient with us as we took time to change attire. He certainly knows what he’s doing- thanks for the lovely photos, Bernard.
Angie showed us our photos and shared with us her honest opinion when asked. She knew we’re hungry and shared her biscuits with us as we make decisions etc. We never felt pushed into doing something we were not happy with. She’s very friendly & helpful. I’m sure we kept Angie beyond her working hours but didn’t rush us.
The place has a relaxing/cozy mood to it!
Many thanks to all- keep up the good job; great asset to the company.

Thank you so much for the shoot, I had the best day!
My makeup & hair artist Lilia was amazing, she was so friendly and she knew exactly what I wanted. I would go to her again! Danny, the photographer, was great at guiding me and making me feel at ease. Very professional and I definitely recommend. At the end whilst choosing the photos, Angie was so real and lovely. She gave her advice while still letting you have your own say. Overall, I had the best experience and would definitely recommend!

For my first ever professional photo-shoot, I honestly couldn't have asked for better. Everyone there was super friendly. Danny was super relaxed and you could tell he thoroughly enjoyed his job. He made me feel completely comfortable in front of the camera and that shows in the photos he took. Jian Luca was incredibly patient with me as I get really twitchy when having make up applied, but despite that, he did a fantastic job and again, it shows in the photos. Mark was very helpful when it came to discussing payment options and going through the photos, he was extremely clear about what was what and what the best plan for us was. Overall an incredibly enjoyable day and will highly recommend to friends! Cheers for making it amazing!

The makeup, hair and photography team on the day of the shoot were fantastic.
We spent a lot of money and selected many of the photos.
Unfortunately, although we were told we would receive our photos within half an hour of paying, and payment was immediate, it took us several days and many emails and phonecalls to get the full set. We did not get any apologies ir explanation from the studio.

We had a good day at Vanity studios. They asked in the week if they could bring the appointment forward by an hour. I guess as they were so busy.
The hairdresser was a bit rude and rushed us but the make up was really lovely. The nails were no filing or cuticals- just coats. We didn’t get any alcohol whilst our hair and make up was being down which would have been nice but we did get a glass of buks fizz before going down the studio.
The photographer was great and helped you make poses. You’re not allowed to take any photos with your own camera. We had to wait 45 minutes after our shoot till we could see the photos but they gave us another glass of wine.
We were also told you don’t get free family shots, only individual people which was annoying as it was the family photos we came for. We hadn’t planned on having individual shots. The sell is very very hard and persuasive. We got the cheapest deal which was £250 for 5 plus the two individual free shots. They were just digital and came
Into my email within 30 minutes. Overall it was a good day and I would recommend buy more expensive than I expected.

My family and I had an awful experience with vanity studios and I would not recommend this to anyone. We wanted to cancel the experience due to different reason however after 3 weeks of phoning up we still have not had our £200 refund, which is ridiculous. We have been continuously told the person we need to talk to has left the building, however, this is clearly a routine excuse as it is every single time. As well as this, it has come to my attention that they avoid my number each time I call because when I tried on my daughter's phone, the lady picked up. This is extremely rude, lazy and unprofessional. Each person I have talked to has been extremely futile, and I am still waiting on my refund.

Very Professional, from contacting Vanity Studios to make the booking,through to the make up and the photo shoot itself. The photographer made us feel at ease.More expensive than expected but they offer various packages and
Interest free payment plans.

Review by Mahfuja3 months ago
Went to Vanity Studios with my 2and half year old, felt really nervous as he is a hyper and very active child but when I arrived I was made to feel really relaxed by the staff. I had my hair and makeup done and instead of them just doing what they wanted they asked me what I liked and made me feel really comfortable. The photographer was amazing he worked really well with my son and had him looking straight at the camera and laughing. Was a great experience with really great team would definately recomend
Review by TFXwhite3 months ago
I purchased this as part of my daughter's 30th Birthday events. Awful experience. After purchasing the package at a stand at Grand Designs I then had to pay an additional deposit when booking the photo shoot. I was told this was immediately refundable after the shoot had taken place. I had to wait 3 weeks for my deposit to be refunded and that was after numerous phonecalls from me to chase it. I had one call from Vanity Studios saying they hadn't processed the refund because they wanted to know why I hadn't purchased any photos!!! the answer to that is that the photos were awful.
On the day we were kept waiting after being advised that we had to arrive on time or miss our slot. The 'professional' make up artist who applied my daughters make up did not even look at her face but watched himself making her up in the mirror the whole time. In the process of painting her nails, her cuticles and skin around the nails was also painted and these are supposed to be professionals. We were asked to bring three outfits of our choice. The photographer didn't like any of them and we ended up being photographed in the clothes we had travelled in which took about 10 minutes. He then said to change into the jeans we had with us and disappeared for 20 minutes, he then photographed us for another 5 minutes and said he was finished. When we went upstairs to view the photos we were told we would have to wait because the employee who shows you the photos was going on a break. As we could not wait around any longer it was eventually agreed that we would be sent thumbnails to choose the photos that were included with the package. We had two photos included in the package but were not allowed to select one of both of us together, we could only select individual shots. Just a ploy to get me to make a purchase.

We have some amazing photos from our photo shoot of our family. Very happy with our pictures. We were not pressured into buying. They were great with our young children. To improve the experience it would be helpful to have some activities for the children to do in between photo shoot as it was a long session for them.

Everyone was really friendly from the moment we arrived. The make up and styling was amazing and I felt really confident. Danny, the photographer, made us feel at ease and the shoot went very well. The different poses and sets gave us a wide range of choice to choose from.
I would throughly recommend the studios - go give them a try!
