The Scenic Drive team received a message from Marieta Herbst. Her daughter's matric farewell photos were a disaster - and desperately needed help. 


Make My Monday. Hi Rian. My daughter was not going to her matric farewell. Luckily for us, I received a bonus a month before the farewell and we agreed that we want her to go experience this once in a lifetime special day. We had a dress made at a good price and her sister did her hair. Her sister got a friend to do her make-up and a school friend of her sister was going to take the photos.

The cost of the photos was R1600. The dress was beautiful; her hair was stunning. To see her with make-up was stunning as we have never seen her with make-up before. Two weeks went by when we received 3 photos, not stunning but at least something. After begging and begging we received a few more but they were not great. Long story short, she now refuses to give me any other photos, edited or not. Yes, I was stupid to trust her, but really... I would love to give my daughter an opportunity to have a photo session with beautiful photos to remind her how she changed into this blossom of a girl. Please, if at all possible would you. 

Regards Marietha Herbst.
