Photo service?

My fiancee and I need to have eight 4cmx6cm photos of us for the Bali embassy for our upcoming wedding. We have tried at the places that advertise for passport photos but we are turned down every time because they say they can't get us in the same shot!!?? I don't want to go to a professional photographer because it's a waste of money.

Any thoughts? We are in Lausanne. Thanks!

Re: Photo service?

Find a friend to take the photos?

I am sure the two of you would fit into a self service photo booth on the station.

And what the hell is a Bali embassy?! I'm sure you ment Indonesian embassy, right? Why would anybody need a photo with both of you on it? I'm sure you will need separate photos if this is a Visa issue (by the way, Indonesia has free 30 day on-entry visas for most nationalities).

Re: Photo service?

What about the photomaton machines at stations ? You should both be able to squeeze into the booth... or are these not the right size photos?

Otherwise, as Ittigen suggests, ask a friend:
- Get someone to take a photo with a digital camera,
- Crop it to the required size in Photoshop, iPhoto or similar,
- Copy-paste eight instances of the photo into a Word file,
- Print the Word file and cut out the photos.

Yes it is the American embassy in Bali but there are all kinds of legal and religious hoops you have to jump through. It is not for a visa. The American embassy in Bali apparently needs these shots for their records.

Thanks I may try that. Not sure how 'real' they have to be or if a word document will suffice.
