How can I book a photo session?
You can contact us via telephone on 01580 893040 to make a booking or email us at info@photomegorgeous.com. A member of the Photo Me Gorgeous team will call you to arrange a convenient time for your session. Please feel free
to call in the studio at anytime to make a booking.

How soon can you fit me in for my photo shoot?
It all depends on what day and time you require. Afternoon and weekend appointments are the most popular and you can expect to book 1-2 weeks in advance. Morning appointments (not weekends) are more flexible and we can fit you in within a week.

Why do you charge a shoot fee?
Your shoot fee acts as a security against your appointment and shows us that you are committed to attending your session. You can pay this over the phone by credit/debit card or send a cheque to the studio. Please note that sessions are only reserved for 48 hours. If payment is not made within that period then unfortunately your session will be cancelled. This is due to the high demand for appointments.

If I cancel my sitting do I lose my shoot fee?
Your shoot fee is non refundable if you cancel with less than 48 hours notice. It is transferable though if you wish to rebook for another day.

Do you offer a consultation about my shoot?
We do offer a free consultation. Please book an appointment for this. One of our consultants can show you around the studio and show you a large selection of our work along with various presentation options for your images after your shoot.

The Photo Me Gorgeous Studio Session.

Help, I’ve got spots before my session today?
There is no need to worry as we can remove all blemishes during post-production.

What if my child is poorly and does not want to be photographed?
If this happens we can rebook you in another day and your shoot fee will be transferred to your next session.

Can I have black & white photographs taken?
As all our pictures are digitally taken they will be presented in a variety of finishes including black & white, sepia and colour.

How long will my session last?
Portraits will take anywhere between 30 and 60 minutes according to how many combinations you are having. The beauty sessions last from 2-3 hours.

What happens if I do not like the pictures?
In the unlikely event that you do not like any of the photographs we will take more for you free of charge (one session only)
I would like my makeup done professionally? Do you recommend that I should have it done?
We have a highly experienced professional makeup artist and one weeks notice is required to book her. Her rate is £60 and includes full makeup and minimal hair styling. We do advise makeup for ladies having beauty/model portfolio sessions.

For general portraits, professional make-up is not essential.

Do you photograph pets?
We can photograph your pets with or without you. (see pet gallery)

Can I give the portrait as a gift?
Yes you can. The Photo Me Gorgeous sessions make a lovely gift. We can bespoke gift vouchers for any amount, product or service.
