October  - Plan Ahead

  • We highly recommend booking an appointment in advance to secure your time slot and preferred set. While walk-ins are always welcome, October is the busiest month of the year and we cannot guarantee a slot for walk-in groups.

  • Weekends and holidays are the busiest days and will require an appointment; this includes: Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Columbus Day, and Halloween.

  • Parties of 6+: Booking in advance is strongly recommended. We have limited availability for large groups and cannot guarantee a walk-in slot.

  • Parties of 10-13: Parties of this size will require a Private session and must book in advance. Same day appointments cannot be guaranteed. For large groups, we suggest calling or messaging the studio to make customized arrangements. We cannot accommodate groups larger than 13.

  • Packages: For more flexibility on time slots, we suggest booking an All Pix or All Pix Plus package, as print package options have limited time slot availability. Print Only packages are unavailable on certain days, such as Saturdays. Please view our booking calendar to select the package that is right for you.

  • Photoshoot Day: Please arrive 5-10 minutes before your appointment and identify yourself to a host. The typical time in the studio, from costuming to the shoot itself, will be about 45 minutes to an hour depending on set and group size. Hair and makeup are not included and are up to the customer.

  • Hours: The last photo session will take place a half hour before closing. Our posted hours are 10am-8:00pm Sunday to Thursday; 10am-10pm Friday & Saturday.

Costume Dressing & the Photo Session

  • Bringing your own costume?  Sure, it’s October in Salem!  We can accommodate clients who wear their own costumes.  Please be lenient with us trying to accommodate any obstructions associated with your costume.

  • All Costume pieces are sanitized by steam following each use.  Customers do not dress themselves.  We style each person by displaying costumes on hangers for a fashion collaboration.  Only employees are allowed to handle costumes to ensure minimal exposure and most feasible sanitation.

  • Your photographer will guide and direct you as a group throughout the session. Each participant in the group will be posed together for photos. Following that, either sub-groups or solo photos of each group member will be taken. There will be up to three different poses taken on set. 

  • Your gallery will have 15-20 finished photos. Each photo will be processed in 4 camera filters: Color (normal color), Black Noir (black & white), Autumn (enhanced color), and Kansas (sepia tone).

COVID precautions

  • We are committed to making your experience at Witch Pix both fun and SAFE.

  • You will first be greeted in an open-air lobby with access to the studio and dressing area limited to customers only.  Our studio has an entrance separate from an exit, creating a one way traffic flow.

  • Our workflow for costume dressing, photo shoot undressing and picture viewing are well directed to limit people in our space, and ensure party groups are not intermixed, effectively maintaining a limited occupancy.

  • Masks are required.  Everyone over two years old must wear a mask covering your nose and mouth in our studio. Masks are provided, if you do not have one.Face shields with no mask are not an acceptable form of face covering. Your mask will only be removed for the duration of the photoshoot. Our staff always wear masks.

  • We provide hand sanitizer to all patrons upon entry and offer hand sanitizer around the studio. Our staff is diligent with handwashing and using sanitizer between parties.

  • All Costume pieces are sanitized by steam following each use.  Customers do not dress themselves.  We style each person by displaying costumes on hangers for a fashion collaboration.  Only employees are allowed to handle costumes to ensure minimal exposure and the most feasible sanitation.

  • We maintain distance with plexi-glass separation at our photo viewing stations.

  • We offer no touch payment processing online and minimal touch and tap payments in the studio.
