Our photoshoot was one of the best experiences we have had, beginning to end. We bought the package in west quay whilst I was pregnant - as a bump to baby package and paid a ridiculously small fee for... this, which came along with one print. I was incredibly happy with the purchase and everything was explained to us clearly - more than once, as I couldn't believe we were getting such an amazing offer!! Our photographer, Alex, was open to suggestions and clearly showed immense knowledge of what would look great. When we returned for our baby photoshoot, again Alex was amazing and managed to keep the attention of our tired 14 week old daughter for the full time. Returning to view the photos was the worst part of us, because they were of such amazing quality and standard, highlighting all the best bits of all of us, from both shoots, that I simply could not narrow it down! We got our free print as well as a package deal that was tailored to suit what we wanted and a deal was made to make sure we had everything. I can honestly say that I would 100% go back to Venture again. People think Venture prices are expensive and honestly, I wouldn't tend to disagree, but what you pay for is an impeccable service, a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, a wealth of photos, experienced photographers, an amazing collection to choose from, an example of how to collate images and these are of the highest standard and quality. I cannot wait to receive my prints, thank you so much Venture! See More

Awful customer service.
Purchased a sitting at Tesco, Bursledon - when it came to booking there were so many T&C's and I was told my partner had to attend (what if I was a single Mum?) I was in fact ...wanting the photos as a surprise for Father's Day and I did state this when purchasing!
I was also told I would have to go back another day to view the photos...why can you not do this the same day?
To change the date after 5 days would cost me £25 - with a teething 11 month old that could cost me a small fortune!!
I didn't bother booking, what a waste of money!
I will be getting photographs done but not at Venture!!

We are a young couple who were after some photos for our first home together and we couldn't be happier with how they turned out. I had done a family shoot almost 10 years ago so knew from previous ex...perience it was the best for life long family photos, but have been equally, if not more, impressed this time round.
We had Laura as our photographer and she was very friendly and incredibly enthusiastic about our ideas. My partner going into it was a little worried, he thought it would be awkward and boring and only agreed to do it because I wanted to, however, he enjoyed himself from the minute we walked in and this was evident in every photo! Laura has an incredible eye and knew exactly how to get us to be picture perfect and relaxed within the environment.
Our viewing experience of the photos was just as welcoming, we were given a lot of patience and guidance to make sure we would come away happy and having made the right decision. As a young couple who aren't rolling in cash, we were very grateful to have had this thoughtfulness and attention to detail right to the end. In fact, every single member of staff who we interacted with during the experience were incredible and deeply enthusiastic about our photos which really made for an enjoyable journey.
Both of us are so happy with our finished products and can't wait to come back!

Brilliant experience from start to finish. Laura, our photographer, was lovely and I am stunned at the images she captured. My husband hates photoshoots but even he was smiling and having fun and the reflect this!. Martin held our viewing and we found him very personable and not at all pushy. We fell in love with so many of the images and so so so happy with our end product. Well worth the money..... I believe you get what you pay for. The whole experience, the unique images and the presentation is fantastic quality. I wanted a piece to go on our wall that captured our family and will be in our home for a very long time. Couldnt have asked for more!! Highly recommended. See More

I was initially approached in WestQuay shopping centre and the team were very friendly and offered Elsie a photo shoot package.

So we had Laura as our photographer and she was brilliant with her crea...tive ideas and patience with our daughter.

We were welcomed back to view the photos. Laura offered our daughter a playset to play with whilst we got on with the cinematic viewing of our photos.

Outstanding service as we never felt pressured to buy and took the time to explain all the details. Also the presentation of the photos was excellent, mocking up the photos into real life examples showing what it would look like in a living space.

Thank you Laura and Team for an exceptional experience. Definitely recommend anyone to have a photo shoot with Laura at Venture Photography.

Have just been to view our photos and I am so happy! Alex made my daughter and I feel very comfortable, he understood exactly what we wanted and the results were stunning. There was no pushy sales just great advice and helpful suggestions to get us the best out of the experience. Cannot wait to collect the framed prints now! Thank you again for helping to make wonderful memories we will treasure a lifetime! See More

Fantastic experience and would highly recommend using venture.
I took my two toddlers and myself to have pics done. The photographer was brilliant with them, and very friendly and helpful. When I wen...t to view the pictures, again, I received first class customer service, and I was so happy with the images they had captured of us. There was no pressure to buy additional photos from my package, and it was very relaxed and friendly. I feel they have a package to suit all budgets and feel they offer value for money, as the photography exceptionally good. See More

We were so impressed with our Venture Photography experience in Southampton. Alex our photographer was amazing! He captured exactly the style of shots we wanted & the results were fantastic! Our son's... favourite song was on the viewing show they put together for us - so personal & great attention to detail. Mike the owner was lovely & helped us narrow down our choices so well & helped us decide on the package of photos that was right for us. He was so kind & he made the viewing stage a wonderful experience that rounded off the whole experience perfectly. Thank you so much to everyone!! Lauren who sold us our session & booked us in was absolutely lovely too. An amazing team doing a fantastic job!! We can not recommend Venture Photography Southampton highly enough! See More

I loved the pictures that Laura took but the pictures are over priced especially the memory stick being £790 that is just over priced. I think you should have packages cheaper to suit everyone's budge...t. Whilst Laura was good and took amazing photos kind of wasted my time . I am gutted that I can't afford to buy any pictures as I really wanted the memory stick See More

We had an extremely positive experience at Venture Southampton having received a voucher for a photography session. The photographer, Alex, made us feel relaxed and welcome and took the time to find o...ut what we wanted from our photos. He was great at making our girls (aged 3 and 1) feel relaxed in the studio and even played the Frozen soundtrack for them to dance too during the photography session, much to my older daughters delight! The session was light-hearted and fun, and the team were professional and helpful throughout.

Today we have been to our viewing and there are so many stunning shots. Throughout the viewing we felt listened too and did not feel pressurised to spend lots of money. Thank you Venture Photography Team, we have been very impressed by our experience with you and have valued your professionalism throughout. We are looking forward to collecting our photo in a few weeks!

Amazing experience. I cried at the viewing, and my husband was speechless. We came away from it very emotional (happy), overwhelmed at the quality and precious moments captured with our 8 month old so...n & felt very lucky to have had the experience we did. Thank you to Martin & especially Nicole our photographer (very talented lady) for your hard work and time. Wish I could of thanked her in person! Worth every penny. Emily Trebilcock. See More

Thanks to all the team at the studio. The photo shoot was an amazing experience (and hard work! ) but the results are fantastic! Nicole captured the spirit of "us"- and produced the most wonderful pi...cture to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. They are images which will be there for a lifetime and bring so much pleasure. I never thought it would be possible to create such art with a camera. Thank you SO much! :) See More

We had such an amazing experience here at Venture Photography Southampton! We went the day after my daughters first birthday so they suggested bringing in a cake and we had some beautiful pictures tak...en for us by Alex who made it that much more special as he was brilliant with our one year old and managed to capture every moment! We fell in love with all the pictures they showed us on the slide show so couldn't help but get all of them on a memory stick so we can keep them forever. We can't wait to pick them up in a couple of weeks! We would recommend to everyone- it has been brilliant! See More

Really amazing photos and Alex the photographer was really good at making me And my other half feel welcome it was a maternity photoshoot so he came up with different ideas and styles for us to do we ...took a few different outfits . Went back a week later to view them and the slide show was amazing and I had a big grin all the way through the photos made me laugh . We bought 5 however prices for photos were really expensive so couldn't afford all of them which was a shame. Picking them up in around 3 weeks and I can't wait to put them around the house and show them off . See More

Awesome experience. My toddler had a random meltdown just before our shoot a was inconsolable. We worried we would get nothing but snotty crying photos but our lovely photographer Naomi rescheduled ou...r shoot at no extra cost. The second shoot was brilliant and she got loads of beautiful photos managing to capture a 4 month old and a hyperactive 2year old together as well as making 2 very sleep deprived parents look like passable specimins of humanity!
