A beautiful way for two people to capture special image with focus on value
THE camera doesn’t lie, and when you come to Portfolio Studios you will see exactly how beautiful you are.
Ladies will book a fashion or boudoir shoot at the studio, based in the tranquil grounds of The Menagerie, in Escrick, York, for a variety of reasons, such as to capture a time in their lives or to simply complete a personal ambition.
What they expect is to leave with a picture of themselves looking stunning.
What they also get, having been pampered with a hair and make-up session before talented photographer Brendan Hopkinson puts any nerves to rest, is to feel sensational about themselves.
This lasts long after the experience, with the pictures serving as a beautiful reminder.
Now, Portfolio Studios presents its fabulous Pictures and Cream package, where two people, be it friends, family or couples, are able to enjoy a make-over, fashion or boudoir photo shoot, a cream tea and one free image for just £25.
A warm welcome and a chilled glass of champagne on arrival sets the tone for the day, with the studio’s look book providing you with plenty of ideas before the stylists create your desired look.
Whether you dare to boudoir, with a tasteful shoot to show off your sultry side, or dress your best and release your inner fashion model, Brendan will – using the studio’s wealth of backgrounds and props and you as his inspiration – capture you in a way you have never seen before.
Before you get to see the pictures, a cream tea will be waiting for you at the nearby picturesque Parsonage Country House Hotel and Spa.
This is a time to relax, be it at The Parsonage or in the peaceful grounds of The Menagerie, where Portfolio Studios moved to in April having been based on Micklegate in York since it was established in 2011.
Yet, the excitement will be building as you wait for the moment of truth.
Back at Portfolio Studios, the pictures are revealed in the viewing room.
The results are simply astounding.
“The biggest result people get is having their confidence built,” explains Alistair Hopkinson, who set-up Portfolio Studios with son Brendan.
“They walk out of here feeling a million dollars about themselves. What we aim to do is give our customers photos they won’t get anywhere else.”
The referral rate for the studio is immense, as is the repeat business it sees from its very happy customers. In the three years Portfolio Studios has been open, it has seen people book for their sixth photo shoot, from ‘bump shots’ when pregnant to fun family portraits, which include the pets – and even just to repeat the experience again.
All of its photo package prices, where you receive the digital image, are available to view online, with no pressure sales at all.
“The value is sensational,” Alistair adds, “but the experience is even better.”
