The pictures were beautiful and the photographer wonderful, but be aware that you still have to pay for photos on top of the Groupon price. The E-CD you get has photos that are very small and can't be printed. It cost us ~$200 to order prints. Still a better deal than most places, but not as cheap as it might appear.

The overall experience was good but the photographer told us she had never worked at the location and didnt seem particularly interested. She also didnt give us much feedback on hand positioning etc....and I feel that the pictures would have looked better with some professional guidance (which was the point)

I was not happy with the service from the photographer. She seemed unhappy too be there and barely spoke to me. My child was uncooperative, but she practically yelled at her. We only went to one location in the beautiful park. Very little effort

Great pictures but very expensive if you want more than just one pose

I had redeemed a Groupon previously and was very pleased with the results! Photographer was great and the extra deal for additional prints was an awesome deal!

I had my pictures taken about two weeks ago and I still have not gotten an email to view the pictures to choose from. Please let me know when I can expect to see the pictures and choose the one I like the best. Also would like to know if I can purchase additional pictures if I would like too? Please touch base with me ASAP. Thanks your loyal customer.

My photo session was fine. The problem I have is with how the groupon was listed. It was VERY misleading. It claims to include an E-view CD with all images. One would think that means digital images that you can post online and make prints out of. Turns out this disc is of low resolution images that are only to be used for viewing online and not to print out. It claims the value of this disc is $69 so one would think that would be for high resolution images that could be printed. Turns out they actually do normally charge $69 for this disc and that to receive a disc with high quality images of printable quality they charge $199! So this should be stated in the listing that the images are for internet viewing only and not high resolution. I bought this deal because a friend of mine also had, yet we both would not have if we had known about this "catch" ahead of time. I only found out because someone had posted a question asking portrait scene about the CD in the Q&A section of your site.

Buyer Beware. Our Appointment is not until July and they already cashed the groupon in!
