Reviews of Studio Olympia
Making booking was little fuss through recorded massage. The day of shooting, make up artist, cameraman, Stephen all staff were friendly and fun. Easygoing and efficient. Quality of photo and posing are well satisfied, make you feel like a star. Watching Photoshop tampering cheat is also professional and fast. Good service, I'll come back again with family photo ( after I lose 5kg ). Any request about make up is listened. However better bring own make up kit if you need eyelash curler.
One star for the makeup artist. Nice and simple makeup.
Another star for not-hard-selling.
Well, this is not the first time for us to have a family shoot at professional studio. When you have family photo shot with young children, you can consider it as mission impossible. Children run out of patience in 5 mins?!? From our previous experience in other studios, the photographer plays the most important role in how to get a good shot. Not relying on the two-year-old kids to behave themselves. They are just kids, they are not models, they will not pose perfectly for the photographer to take the perfect shot. So a good photographer should CREATE the moment. Obviously, they failed to do so.
Another thing is there were no props. Not a single toy for the kids. So how can they get the kids in front of the camera? Ok, my children loved playing with the stool. Then why not just take a few photos with the kids playing with it.
It's a bad idea to show customers the unedited photos. Once you see the unedited photos, you lose interests in them right the way, no matter how gorgeous the final edited photos are. Better spend 10 or 15 mins to pick a few good one and give them a quick edit before showing them to customers. The effect would be so different.
We spent two hours in the studio, 45 mins for makeup, 30 mins in waiting, 45 mins for our unsuccessful shooting session. Lose-Lose.
Very professional and fun.
Had family shots done with 2 Adults and 2 Teenagers. We couldn't have laughed at each other more.
Makeup was exactly what we wanted. Not over the top and very well done.
Photo shoot was painless and finally after 11 years have a family photo!
Picking the photos was easy and Stephen was very helpful.
Great value and excellent service
Mariah & I had a photo shoot on Sunday 16th June at the Melbourne site. We had purchased a Scoopon deal.
Just wanted to take the time to thank the amazing make-up & hair artist, she did a great job and met all expectations. She was also a lovely person to have a chat with!
The photographer made the shoot enjoyable & fun. And also made us feel welcomed as a same sex couple. We were so happy with our photos & it was hard to choose only a select few.
For the lovely gentleman at the end who took us through the photos, thank you for helping us make the final selections & tailoring a package to suit us. We were both happy with the cost & the fact that the photos come on a disc so we can print as many copies and sizes as we wish!
Overall an absolutely amazing company & would/will defiantly recommend to friends and family!
Were are glad we bought the Scoopon or we would not have found such a wonderful company.

We were very happy with our experience. Only disappointment was we tried very hard early on a Saturday morning to arrive on time for our shoot time of 8am and staff did not start on time. My adult children ( subject of shoot ) and I were thrilled with the images. Everyone was friendly and made us feel welcome and comfortable.
What a truly great family experience we had at Studio Olympia's new studio in West Melbourne today. Great fun, professional coordination, high quality make up artist and a magician with a camera. My family portraits look unbelievable (even with my average looking head in them). My 13 year old daughter (Amy) was made to feel like a Star, my 16 year old son (Jack) was allowed to take it "low key" as it wasn't really his thing, my wife (Keryn) looked lovely and I was made presentable (which is no mean feat). Thanks do much to Stephen, Beth & Issa for making this a Special Day for my family, which we will all remember for many years to come due to having it captured so beautifully in digital living colour! Studio Olympia is the best!
It was my second time with Studio Olympia, and I would highly recommend them to anyone interested in having solo, couple, and/or family photo's done. The whole experience was very enjoyable, very professional in a friendly environment. Well and truly worth every dollar.
Thanks to the team on our day, Nathan for being very efficient, lots of fun and extremely proficient, and James for your patience and professionalism.
We will definitely be back!
Thanks & regards
The staff are great and very friendly.The make up is nice. The result are amazing for me.
We assume we could got a disc to keep but end up we have to pay a pricey price for it (though they tried to offer us some discount).
I love the pics and the overall experiences. But I end up only had 1 pic to keep which disappointment me a lot at that time. I wish I could keep few more.
So basically, I end up with mix feeling.
