If you buy a voucher, you can obviously expect to be convinced into buying a suite of photos for $600+ (on top of the cost of the voucher and supposed $200 you receive off your photos).
Because there is such a high volume of vouchers sold.. you are basically rushed through hair and makeup because bookings are back-to-back. Whilst makeup was done very well, little was done with hair. In fact, there weren't any chocolates or champagne either to lighten the mood.
The photographer didn't really stage the photos very well and some angles were definitely questionable. Not very personable and didn't really instruct their amateur subjects on how to pose. The result? Lots of awkward photographs to choose from.
The process of culling down the photos .. it is designed to get you involved in the decision making so you feel you've gone through alot of effort to select the "very best" from the photos. Finally you are faced with the final decision of a ludicrous $190 (before GST?!) digital copy of the photo price tag or the $600+ package.
Oh alongside the choices and bubbles you can also forget about the print.. (because they threw in all those extra photos, of course). If you love the pictures, go for it. But knowing the process and being prepared of what's to come may lead to more satisfying decision making and save you $$$ when all you needed was one good portrait or family photo.
