It may only be August, but as ever, preparations are underway for our Christmas Specials! The big man visits us each year in October to confirm his naughty/nice lists are up to date.... so we're just days away from opening up the bookings. And you'll need to be fast! Last year sold out in under 2 hours and the interest this year is already off the scale.
To enable a smooth booking period, please read these FAQs – then if you still have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get back to you asap.
When do they take place?
This year, Santa will join us on October 17th and 24th! Our Winter Wonderland Sessions will take place on November 7th.
We need time after your session to beautifully post process your images, upload them to your private gallery and allow you time to see and place your order. Digital images are available for immediate download, printed products are professionally made at our pro photo lab before dispatching them to you at home. Many clients make their own photo gifts for family, we want to make sure you have plenty of time to enjoy your photographs in the lead up to the big day!
How long is the session?
Your appointment lasts up to fifteen minutes, we ask you to arrive just on time (not early or late) due to tight schedules and limited parking.
How much does it cost?
The ticket price is £99 and includes:
- a private meet and greet with Father Christmas OR a play in our snowy winter wonderland, the choice is yours.
- a little gift from the North Pole, whether you've booked to meet Santa or not.
- your favourite image from the day as a high resolution digital download, that you can print, share online and do as you like with!
After your session you'll receive login details to your online gallery where you can choose your complimentary image and purchase a range of products.
Prints from £40
Digitals from £50
ALL the digital images from your gallery £99
The Ultimate - All your digitals plus all your prints for a bargain £175!
Can I bring somebody else?
The session is valid for up to four siblings from one family only. If you wish to bring cousins/friends or anybody else, please book a session per family. If you book sessions next to each other we are happy to discuss photographing everybody both together and individually - this will depend on numbers and ages and must be arranged in advance.
Can I change my day or time?
All bookings are final, we have Santa for a limited amount of time and generally sell out quickly, so please note, no amendments can be made to your booking.
What to bring or wear?
To meet Santa, your Christmas Pjs, Festive jumper or party gear are all great choices! To play in the snow, hats, scarves and gloves look great as it's an 'outdoors' set. We usually post outfit inspiration on our social channels a little nearer the time, so do keep an eye out!
Sold! How do I book?
If you're on our mailing list, you'll receive an email with a booking link. Bookings open at 8am on Friday 14th August to the mailing list and at 8pm to the general public – the link will go live on our Facebook page.
The Covid Stuff:
All government recommendations at the time of your session will need to be adhered to, these may include but are not limited to, hand sanitizing at the point of entry, face coverings necessary for adults, non contact with Father Christmas, distancing required within the studio, obligatory temperature checking on arrival. A detailed email will be sent nearer the time to all booked clients.
We are super excited to welcome you back for another sparkling festive season at Slinky Photography Studio!
