Had a great time with these guys ! The team is friendly and they made me comfortable from the start of the session till the end.
Had a wonderful experience today. All the people throughout the day were so talkative and friendly. 10/10 would recommend to anyone who wants to try a photo shoot for the first time.
My friend and I had SO MUCH fun. We did a boudoir shoot and loved the attention given to us, as well as the advice and photos. Can't wait to do again
A very friendly place on the heart of Hammersmith! I booked my photo shoot painlessly by phone and was then warmly received at the studio. The photo shoot was a blast and my photos arrived quickly in my mailbox.Definitely a recommendation for anyone needing professional photos. More...
Had a wonderful afternoon shoot here earlier in the week. All staff and artists so friendly, so easy to book, and loved the final pieces! !00% recommend to everyone - best shoot so far! More...
Fabulous experience, very welcoming team. Hair and make up speedy but very effective. Photographer made us feel at ease with lovely backgrounds and furniture. Dreaded viewing a delight, no hard sell, very friendly and fun. We highly recommend. More...
The whole team made us feel so genuinely welcome. It was an amazing day and the photos were fantastic. Expensive photos, but just as you'd expect for top quality. As a one off experience it was well worth it. And you don't have to purchase any photos if you'd really rather not. They are encouraging rather than forceful. More...

Danny the photographer was amazing, he made me and my friend feel so relaxed and really got some great shots. Even the photos I thought I would hate I ended up loving.
Today could have not been anymore perfect! We were greeted by Natasha who was friendly and polite, she immediately offered us drinks and instructed us about how the day was going to go. We where then placed into the hands of our stylists who listened to what we wanted for our look and adjusted what we didn’t like, they were incredibly friendly and professional (and even helped my friend who doesn’t wear or understand makeup figure out what was best)! After our make over, we were left in the capable hands of Danny who made today so comfortable and special, I was so nervous about doing the shots today but Danny put me at ease by weening me into each photograph and making each shot memorable and unique, he was magnificent. Viewing our photos was late, purely because the women before us had a good time, but Natasha entertained us by keeping our drinks filled and chatting away with her bubbly personality. Finally we met with Aaron, who showed us our photographs from the day and talk us through everything, completely professional and he made us at ease with his relaxed personality. Thank you Studio 52 for a perfect day, I couldn’t be more thrilled than I am at this moment. More...
Absolutely amazing experience! On my way back to my hotel after another wonderful shoot at Studio 52 and just wanted to say thank you. Wonderful, professional and friendly people! Highly recommended. More...
My cousin and I came here for our 30th birthday gift and we had a great day. we got some amazing pictures and loved our hair and make up. We were really pleased with the results - Thanks everyone � More...
For anyone who has bought a day package from someone on the street and is a bit apprehensive please read this!
My girlfriend and I were approached on the street and sold the day package we really didn’t know what to expect and were a bit nervous.
However, everything on the phone was handled very well, I knew exactly what was going to be happening and even though the £50 each deposit was a bit of a shock.
Our welcome was lovely and we had a much needed cup of tea as it had taken us a while to get there, thanks Natasha! We were slightly late but this wasn't a problem at all, we just rushed through the introduction to make up for it.
After this we moved on to hair and make up, we both asked for a fairly natural look which is exactly what we got. I wasn’t happy with my hair but I’m very particular about it so not really the artist’s fault.
The shoot its self was so fun, I was worried about not feeling comfortable posing but our photographer Danny was just amazing at telling you exactly what to do. We just felt completely at ease and it was much more fun that I thought it was going to be. During this we were offered wine which was lovely.
We said before hand that we could not buy any extra photos as we're students and really can't afford it, we were worried they would pressure us too much but actually Aron respected that we're students and didn't push us into buying anything at all, he was lovely to chat with and you could tell he had a good eye for unusual shots. Although I felt he pushed the photos he liked most rather than what we liked but I was very happy with my selection in the end!
At the end of the day, if you've paid a discounted price on the street, it's so worth it. Just go and have fun, you've got nothing to loose! More...
Wooow it’s was a big impressed for me and my friend.��
Everybody was so nice and helpful about our ideas as well.
We have lot’s of fun and great experience.Lovely service and professional team.I am so thankful to be part of it.
Thank you very much again the beautiful pictures.� More...
my Husband and I had the best time!! From the lady that greeted us the make up artists photographer and then the photo sales man we are made to feel really special!! Fab day!
Wendy Thaddeus Foster
Fun day with my friend. Make up artists did a great job with our hair and faces. Big thanks to our photographer Michelle, fab & friendly lady who guided us the whole session making us comfortable in front of the camera. Thanks for a good day.
Emma Louise Jennings
Thank you Studio 52! I have been to a shoot before with my mum but this time I brought my husband for a couples shoot.
He doesn't usually like attention on him but the photo shoot with Danny really brought him out of his shell. He and I had an amazing day!!
Thank you to everyone at Studio 52! We love your new place in Hammersmith! More...

I went here recently after being recommended by a friend. I was super happy with the day. As a business owner and professional I understand the importance of excellent customer care.
After reading some of the reviews on here the large majority very positive and a few less so, I decided to find out for myself.
Not being a model, I wasn’t sure how I would feel in front of the camera, and also what I would end up using the photos for.
The greeting was very warm and friendly and I had a brief tour around before having a coffee and chat with my photographer Naz about the shoot.
I can honestly say Naz is a super super photography, excellent creating great images but equally in making you feel relaxed and in giving lots and lot of great posing tips (which I’ll be taking away with me!!).
After the shoot, I met Krish, the owner, who reviewed the photos with me and helped me choose the ones I liked.
I was apprehensive about how they would apprach the sales as I wasn’t sure I wanted to purchases any additional images other than the complimentary one included with my package from the voucher I bought. However, everything was explained clearly to me and I felt comfortable that if I didn’t want to purchase them, I didn’t have to. But there were so many shots that I loved (and I don’t often like photos of myself!!), that I ended up coming away with 10 images that I’m absolutely delighted with.
In fact, I’m so happy that I’m sending my team and friends down, and I wanted to take the time to share my experience on here.
Thanks for a great day, best of luck in the future and hope to see you all again!

My cousin and I were brought the makeover and photoshoot as a gift and were unsure of what to expect after reading reviews on Facebook.
We were greeted warmly and offered drinks. Next we had our hair and makeup done - we both really enjoyed it and the ladies there were great! Nails painted - one coat of colour but I suppose only really to look good in photos. Next to the photos! We both expressed to Imperia that we were nervous and she was fantastic - she was so professional and friendly and gave us so much direction we’d never once felt uncomfortable. On a side note - we were not offered any drinks in the two hours of makeup, hair and photoshoot and a glass of water would’ve been appreciated. Next to look at the photos! We went in knowing we only wanted to choose our one print that was included in our package. This did not go down well. Apparently we are the first people EVER to only go away with our free prints - hmmm?! We expressed that £70 for one image was completely out of our price range but Matt continued to tell us how it would make the studio a loss etc. We stuck to our guns and left happy with our free to prints which were sent to us there and then.
Overall we had a fab day and would recommend but tell people to stand strong if they don’t want to spend more (or wait until he offers you a great offer as you walk out the door - however we were too cross to take it!).
A note for the management - the makeover team and photographer were wonderful and a compete credit to your business. The lady who greeted us floated around on her phone and interrupted our make up artists several times to speak about herself and what she was doing later that night - I feel this lowered the tone and atmosphere that others were clearly trying to set. More...
I would like to say massive thank you to all the team in Studio 52 for my photo shoot. I was one of the lucky ones which has won this experience with one photo for free.
I was very happy when I have found out, but after I have shared my happiness with few people my happiness got change to a concern. They told me that this kind of companies are trying to rip you off after photo shoot. I have start reading reviews and opinion about this studio was mixed. I wasn't sure what to think , but in the end I have decided to go and find out on my own.
When I have arrived I was welcome by Natasha who was my host for the day, she was lovely and explained everything about the whole experience. Then I was taken upstairs where Lawrence and Jade prepared me for my session, they made my nails, hair and make up. I knew how I wanted to look like from the start and I got exactly what I've wanted. In a meantime when I was waiting form my session, Natasha has offer me a glass of Champagne, which was very nice and helped me relax a bit. I have to say that I was a bit scared, just because I do prefer to be on the other side of camera. Thankfully I had amazing photographer Michelle, she made me feel very comfortable and after few photos I start to have fun. I was very happy to have lady as my photographer, I really wanted to have boudoir session for my husband, so I didn't feel awkward at all.
While I was waiting for my pictures to be review I got offered another glass of Champagne. Mat picked me up and we went upstairs to see results. I have to admit that I am very picky abut my pictures, and I wasn't sure if I will like them, but my photos were actually better that I have expected, In the end I couldn't make up my mind. Through all this time Mat never ever pushed me to buy pictures. He was very nice and he waiting for me to make a decision if I want them or not. I left with 6 amazing pictures. My profile pic is one of them.
So as a summary my experience was great and I really enjoyed it.
Once again thank you so much for amazing pictures and fun day!!! More...
Wonderful experience for those looking to have professional photographs taken and we really enjoyed it. Staff was very friendly and considerate, photographer was experienced and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera, make-up and hair were done really nicely (it goes quicker if you bring your own foundation as you skip the skin colour matching part). The session was also very private and it felt as though we had the whole the studio to ourselves as bookings are scheduled so that there is no-overlap between appointments. We were very happy with our experience. More...
Such a wonderful day!! The staff were so friendly :) Can't wait to come back with my family!!
I've done professional photo shoots before, but I have bever felt so comfortable and had such good treatment as I did at Studio 52.
The receptionist, make up artists, photographer and creative director who went through our photos were all super friendly! I went with my sister and we really had a great time, much due to how well we were treated.
Would definitely recommend to others. More...
Had a wonderful day at Studio 52! Nas took care of us from the second we walked in, the hair & make up team were lovely and the photographer was really friendly and made us feel so comfortable. Very happy with the pictures :) Thank you everyone at Studio 52! More...
What a beautiful experience, I have had a great time there. I would definitely recommend it to anyone
We've just finished our day with studio 52 and we had a great time. Everyone from the host to the photographer was lovely. I went in a bit apprehensive as I hadn't done anything like this before but it was a really fun day. My hair and make up looked great, the photographer put us at ease and the resulting photos were lovely. Would really recommend! More...
Very nice customer experience from booking through to delivery of the images. The photographer was very approachable and friendly. She managed to make the photo shoot easy and relaxed despite the fact that first felt a bit uptight having a big camera held pretty much in my face. I felt pricing was fair for what I got. In short: I'm very pleased with my headshots for my LinkedIn profile and would definitely go back to Studio52 whenever I'd need new pictures taken! More...
Super friendly staff and just the minute I walked into their studio I had a good feeling. I booked the business headshots and was more than happy with the pictures!! Thanks again
Having bought this photo session on special offer, I really wasn't sure what to expect but from the booking onwards ,everyone was very friendly and clear about what the day would entail. My daughters and I had a fun day and the photographer, Imperia , , ,was very professional and made us feel at ease during the shoot ( none of us had done anything like that before). I recommend taking some snacks if you are there all day. We were all very happy with the photos More...
Great experience! Sadly my skin reacted to the make-up used. But the atmosphere and staff were lovely. The resulting photos were amazing
Wow. Fantastic. Great experience from start to finish. I went with my daughter, originally a Christmas present, it was a fun day of hair, nails, makeup and then the shoot itself.
And at the end you see the photos. Very happy. Thankyou. More...
Had the best experience ever. Staff were so lovely, welcoming and supportive with all elements of the day such as make up and the photoshoot. Came out with some amazing photos, and will go again! More...
Amazing day in Studio 52 London. Very professional staff (from the girl at the hall till the makeup artists and photographer). I had fun and the people were very nice (especially the owner of the Studio). I recomend to go there if u want to have nice photos and lots of fun. More...
My daughter won a free photoshoot. It was a great experience, the team are lovely and are very welcoming. On this occasion my daughter was unwell and wasn't very focused (she 2) the photographer managed to keep calm and maintain her focus to achieve amazing pictures. Definitely recommend
If you're looking for a memorable photoshoot, this is the place to go. Simply fabulous photos. I took my niece and my brother for some family photos and made and occasion of it. .. Friendly staff and we had a lady photographer who was superb.. Definitely recommend to capture those special memories in print. More...
Such a great time! My friend and I had so much fun, being primped and pampered and then photographed looking our very best.
The whole team are lovely, genuine people with a sense of humour and warm attitudes, we felt so welcome. The photographer is fantastic, she knows exactly what looks good and gives just the right amount of instructions.
Word of warning: You WILL want to keep more than one photo, so be prepared to spend some money! However they're great at working within your budget and helping you pick only the very, very best pictures (which will be so good you'll start thinking you could be a model!) More...
Absolutely fantastic experience, my friend and I hugely enjoyed the day. When we arrived, the staff were friendly and so lovely when greeting us, our host then completely explained the layout of the day and made us feel very comfortable. We were given lots of options for our hair and make-up for the shoot, it was really good to choose from lots of different looks. We then went upstairs for our makeovers, and got our make-up, hair and nails done and we looked spectacular thanks to the amazing hair and make-up artists. The photoshoot was so much fun, the photographer made us feel really at ease and helped us to make only the most fun and flattering poses which was a relief as neither of us knew how to pose properly. We then got to review our photos with the owner himself and we had a great time joking around commenting on the photos. He was absolutely lovely and helped us to pick out our best photos. Overall we had a great time, a good laugh and we walked away with some stunning photos, big thank you to all the team at Studio 52!! Would recommend to everyone!! More...
The staff were very friendly and the hair and makeup stylist was amazing. We had lots of fun for the photo shoot and would definitely recommend
Absolutely loved the experience. The staff were all lovely and very welcoming.The photographer made us feel very comfortable and was very sweet. I Would definitely recommend anyone to experience a day at studio52. ☺️ Keep up the good work More...

This was my second time at Studio 52 and I had the most amazing experience.
The staff were so friendly and my hair and make-up were done to perfection. The photos were phenomenal and I couldn't be more pleased with them. The photo editor (Krish) was amazing and so charming which made me love my photos even more.
I went by myself, and was made to feel so comfortable, so for any of you that aren't sure whether to go alone, I would highly recommend it!
I will definitely be back again! More...
Did exactly what they said they would do and even changed it to suit our needs last minute. Every member of staff were very polite and amazing with the kids. .....When your Mrs makes out its a quick photo but really you there hours didn't help my experience but nothing to do with this excellent studio. If you go with small children I would definitely bring something to keep them entertained. More...
Absolutely wonderful experience yet again at Studio 52 with my friend Julia. As returning clients, we were not a tiny bit disappointed. The new location, although, still in process of being arranged, is beautiful, the stuff - friendly and competent and we were spoilt rotten throughout the day. Definitely something on a 'to do' list when it comes to treating yourself and a friend. More...
My 3 kids and myself had our photo shoot in mid August.
We all had a wonderful day.
I was really worried about having it done as I don't like my photo taken, but after this experience I would go back and have it done again tomorrow. We were all put at ease and made to feel like celebrities.
Thank you all so much, for the day and the beautiful photos we have come away with.
I would recommend you to anyone!!! Thank you More...
On behalf of Kemi & I, we just want to say a massive thank you for the photoshoot we had at the end of August. It was definitely a day to remember! From the hair & make-up artists to the photographer & of course the editor & the receptionist; you were all amazing. It was a fun & wonderful experience and we will definitely have to come back in the near future. Once again, we both sincerely thank you all so much for your hospitality. More...
I think the experience was superb! The staff were very welcoming and offered regular complementary drinks on the go, which is always nice.
In particular I found the photographer and the editor (Krish) very charming and great to work with for our pictures!
I would recommend this to anyone and I hope Studio 52 nothing short of success!
Thanks for a great time :) More...
Really enjoyed the experience and would recommend to all my friends and family! All the staff were lovely and very friendly and helpful.
In particular Krish and the main photographer were superb! We look forward to coming here again :D More...
Had a family shoot here last week. Hair & makeup on my wife was stunning. The photographer made it really easy and unlike other studios we have tried, there is no pressure to buy. Incredibly friendly professionals who know what they're doing. Will be back next year! More...
Fab day!! I went with my best friend just before a big university event. We had a great time with the whole team; they interacted with us but also respected when we wanted to relax.
I felt extremely comfortable from the beginning and there's no pressure to spend extra money on photos (although, you're guaranteed to want them all!).
The host for the day was so lovely and chatty and tended to our every need. The stylists were very knowledgeable made made sure the look compliments you. The photographer gave a lot of direction but it's for the best as she knows what she's doing! And finally we had the owner for reviewing the photos and he was such a laugh. He makes sure that there are plenty of options!
The whole day was supposed to last 5-6 hours and we were comfortably out within 5. You honestly don't feel that you've been there that long as each stage is just over an hour with drink breaks in between. I would love to go back! More...
Fantastic day out with my mum!
The host for the day was great, ensuring we always had a drink and chatting away to us throughout the day.
The make-up and hair people were amazing at what they do, I felt like a superstar when they were done with me. This instantly made me feel at ease, ready for the photos. The photographer was equally as amazing, he knew exactly what he was doing, from helping us choose which outfits to wear together, to directing us on how to pose. The lighting, angles and directed poses looked amazing in the pictures (even when they didn't feel very natural whilst doing them!!)
Finally, Krish did a fantastic job at editing our photos and helping us be ruthless enough to choose from the massive number of beautiful shots. I didn't feel like there was any pressure to buy loads and felt really at ease. Minor issue was that everything was a bit delayed, so we didn't get into hair and make up until later than expects and ended up leaving really late (9pm) which was difficult for getting trains home. Other than that, the day was fantastic.
Thank you for a wonderful day Studio 52! More...
My fiancé and I visited Studio 52 in December and had a fantastic time. My fiancé had been liaising with Ryan, the Studio Manager for a couple of months as he had planned to propose on the day we were visiting. However, he didn’t want the usual proposal that usually happens on set up and wanted something unique. Speaking to Ryan over the course of a few months, helped him keep at ease as Ryan was always quick to respond to queries and offer his thoughts. Ryan suggested my fiancé come to the studio in advance to talk it all through so the team could meet him and they could go through the plan. Ryan went above and beyond the standard day for photoshoots and helped tailor an additional add on for when the proposal was to happen. When we arrived, little did I know what was going to happen. I thought it would be a good day out for us and we both love taking pictures so a photoshoot day seemed ideal for us, something different as neither of us had been to one before. The team were very attentive to us on the day, and although they all knew the proposal was to come at the end, they did a great job concealing it as I had no idea. The hair and make-up artists were amazing and made us look and feel great. The photographer was also great and captured some amazing shots of us. Once the photoshoot was over, we went into the viewing room and this is where the proposal was happened. Ryan had spoken and prepped the team up in advance so everyone knew how it was going to happen and when it was going to happen. Ryan even arranged to have a video camera set up so the proposal could be captured. After the day he synced the video for us. This additional touch will create a great memory for us of the proposal. Ryan even arranged for us to come back for a second shoot so further pictures could be taken of us and the ring as the proposal took place after the initial shoot. We visited again a couple of weeks ago and again the service was amazing. What a great team Studio 52 has and what an amazing experience they helped to build and capture for us. Highly recommended! More...
I book a photo shoot here for me and my 5 year old son, I can't give them enough credit the whole experience was so relaxing they were fantastic with entertaining my son (or him entertaining everyone else) the hair and make up ladies were fantastic very friendly and chatting the whole time. Our host from the start was extremely friendly and efficient to both of our needs providing us with refreshments throughout. Our photographer was brilliant very professional and friendly! The pictures were beautiful had loads of compliments about how great they are. I would definitely recommend the studio and will definitely be returning in the future. Thank you so much Studio 52 for making the experience fun and extremely relaxing. More...
My friend and I came for a makeover and photoshoot, just as a fun day out. We had the best day! As soon as we arrived we were made to feel very welcome, as everybody was really friendly. When I went to have my makeup and hair done, the ladies doing it really listened to what I wanted, and they did a great job. The photographer was lovely, and she gave us really detailed advice on how to pose, which was brilliant, as I didn't have a clue what to do! Some of the poses felt a little unnatural, but when we saw the results, they looked absolutely amazing; we looked like professional models! The lady who showed us our pictures was lovely too, and when I said I didn't want to spend any money, but just wanted to choose my one free photo, she was fine with that; I didn't feel she was giving me a hard sell. Be warned, though; the photos are beautiful, and you could end up spending a lot of money! More...
My day was fantastic. really friendly staff!!! I was asked what I want and I receive all of it 9 and bit more). hairstyle, make up, reception and photo shoot- first class. get ready to spend money, I was not going to buy a lot of pics, but they were so fab and... perfect, we got all bunch of them!!! I don't regret any time or money spend there!!! More...
This is my second review of studio 52 after my second visit and again they have been brilliant. My sister and I had an amazing time.
Although the makeup artists and photographer were different from my last visit, I felt like I was in the hands of people who knew what they were doing and everyone was genuinely lovely. From start to finish they were great. The booking process was well explained by Neil and very easy. All the makeup girls were lots of fun and made us look (and feel) amazing as did our photographer Danny - lots and lots of laughs! And finally a lovely lady took us through our pictures which came out brilliantly.
Thank you thank you thank you I honestly can't think a better way to spend a cold and rainy november afternoon. More...
My day at Studio 52 was such a fantastic experience! Everyone there was so warm, welcoming and friendly. Honestly, could not have asked for a better makeover and photography session!!
I did a shoot entirely in leather and BDSM wear and the team really 'got it'. I was made to feel totally at ease and welcomed by everyone, the shots are fantastic and I'd recommend it to anyone.
All I can say is WOW! I bought voucher for a makeover at Studio 52 from the Ideal Home Show - a very good sales person persuaded me. I booked for me and my sister for a girly day out in town but after my sister decided she couldn't go at the last minute I had to go on my own and was honestly not looking forward to it. From the moment I got there though to the moment I left, I was looked after by an amazing team of people. The hair and makeup girls were incredible, so friendly and brilliant at what they do. The lady who took my pictures was so patient with me and genuinely lovely. The end result blew me way and I only wish I could have bought more pictures (they're not cheap but you can see why). Thanks to everyone there - I'll be back with my sister! More...
I had a lovely lovely time during the photoshoot! I brought my friend along with me and we had a blast together. The atmosphere was really friendly and professional;
the photographer really know how to make you comfortable - especially for the boudoir shoot. I was especially happy with my final images!! I think I literally cried when I saw them :) It's so good that I'm planning to go there again lol
Two thumbs up! More...
Studio 52 has been great, at both hosting our events and taking headshots for our clients/the young actors we know. The quality of their headshots verses the price they charge is fantastic and the work produced thus far has been second to none.
Had some excellent professional headshots done at Studio 52! I really needed some good headshots for work, but I'm not very comfortable in front of the camera so I wasn't looking forward to it at all. But the photographer made me really at ease, and actually made the process fun and relaxed. And the result is that I'm happily surprised by how much I like my photos! Thank you so much to Imperia, Louise, and the rest of the team. More...
Lee & Lawrie
Studio 52 has just done an absolutely fantastic job of shooting our spring/summer clothing collection. The whole team was a total pleasure to work with, allowing us to get the best out of our designs and our models. We asked for particular guidance on brand-appropriate hair and makeup styling, and we were thrilled with how the makeup artist and shoot director listened to our input and then advised us accordingly, giving us options and help all the way through. The photographer was excellent at listening to our brief, understanding the variety of shots we wanted to create, and then making those shots come to life. And the support provided by the marketing team throughout the process (including pre-shoot prep as well as post-shoot image production) was superb. We now have a full portfolio of fantastic images of our collection and we'll definitely be using Studio 52 for our next shoot too. More...
Hello Team Studio
Thank you again for an excellent experience at Studio 52. From arrival to departure everything was so well catered for. I really did enjoy that Krish, the business owner personally taking my friend and I through the experience of selecting photographs.
I want to disclose, I have had breast cancer, and this is the reason why I attended the photo shoot once I recovered physically: to help get my confidence back.
I can honestly say that the photographs are proof towards showing myself and others how well I recovered from breast cancer - I am surprised how glamorous I looked (blush). My friend and I bought 6 photos each to keep and give as gifts, and to use for professional portrait shots too. The quality of finish of the final prints (all also available on the included CD) was impeccable.
I would not hesitate to recommend Studio 52 to others and I will be back soon to have photos taken of my and my partner, as I had such a great experience first time round! More...
Had an amazing day today at Studio 52! Right from the booking stages to leaving, everyone was perfectly friendly and welcoming.
As we had never done something like this before, we were a little apprehensive but the chatty and relaxed atmosphere made by our host, Manny, made us feel at ease.
Every detail was listened to in regards to hair and makeup, they did a pro job and didn't make it too heavy or dramatic so we still felt comfortable.
Imperia is fantastic at what she does. The expertise in her photography ensured we had a brilliant session, her direction was easy to follow yet so professional, helping us create high end photos yet laughing a lot and having so much fun.
Lastly, and definitely not least, Krish walked us through all our photos helping us choose which two free individual photos we wanted to take home. They were all so well done that we couldn't stop there and had to buy a few more... This stage was as much fun as the photoshoot itself as Krish was so helpful and understanding of what we wanted.
We came away feeling very, very happy and had a fantastic day. Would highly recommend to anyone! More...
Spent a day here in December and absolutely loved it! All the staff; everyone from the hairstylist to the make-up artist to the photographer were all lovely and incredibly professional. The photos produced were of amazing quality and the whole experience was just so much fun! I left feeling glamorous! In comparison to other photo shoots I've been to, this tops all of them just because the quality of everything was so much better. I would highly recommend Studio 52! More...
I am amending my rating of Studio 52 (see below the dotted line), as after I wrote this I was contacted by Studio 52 who looked into the issues that I had, apologised and resolved these. I am impressed at how throughly they followed up, how efficient they were in this process and how concerned they were that there was an issue. This goes to show how important they value their customers and business.Really my main issue with them was always the ineffective communication as i enjoyed the day, as this made me feel just like a number. However after being recontacted by them and them being so approachable (allowing me to give honest feedback regarding their business) and their friendliness, my opinion has improved.Keep up the good work guys, being genuinely interested in your customers is really important to us!-Really not sure about this place!I got a Groupon voucher (a friend and I went for a 50's make-over and shoot), so I could try them out to see if they were suitable to do some promo pictures for me.The first issue we hit, was that although it mentioned a £50 deposit on the deal, they tried to charge us a £100 deposit for the weekend.We were also promised a 'make-up goodie bag' which never appeared.We did however have a fantastic day everyone was very professional, we loved our manicures, make-up and hair styling (although it wasn't really 50's more a modern understanding of this era).The shoot also went well, we posed in a number of outfit, in a number of lovely sets and the photo's were greatHowever when it came to the end we felt very pressured by the woman showing us the pictures to buy them, and the prices were just outrageous £70 per additional picture (we had 1 included in the deal).
