This is by far the worst photography business ever! Do not go to them for your wedding. They are fake, don’t spend the quality time needed on editing your photos, take forever to get back to you, and make you feel like a burden for asking questions or wanting the editing done well, even if they were the one who made the mistake. Please take my advice, don’t go to them and work with another photographer! Kristen is by far the most unprofessional of all. Calling herself a photographer seems like an insult to real photographers! Read the rest of this review if you want examples:When we were deciding if we should work with them, they seemed good because their pictures they showed us were good and they seemed like they knew what they were talking about with editing and everything you asked if they could provide they said yes. They pull you in by saying you get two photographers the day of your wedding, all the original pictures, and a free hair and makeup session for your bridals. Sounds like a good deal, right? WRONG! What they don’t tell you is that the pictures they were showing you were from a different photographer who won’t be taking your pictures and doesn’t even work there anymore. The two photographers who will be taking your pictures would be Kristen, a girl right out of school who doesn’t have any experience, is extremely unprofessional, fake, and who won’t spend any quality time on editing your pictures and will give you crappy finished work and get annoyed with you when you ask her to do it right. And the other photographer, who although extremely nice, won’t take candid shots because it’s not his “style” and only wanted to take forced poses, he would take too much time on one single shot so you don’t have time for all of the shots you originally asked for, and he smelled like cigarette smoke. Luckily I asked for a practice for my hair and makeup for my bridals, because Cynthia made me look like a drag queen. It looked nothing like the pictures I showed her. My experience with them was awful! The only reason we stuck with them was because we signed a contract. They made us feel like we were a nuisance for wanting our pictures edited correctly.
I have been a faithful customer of Jaylynn for years now & I always keep hoping that prices & quality improves. Now Jacques is the best photographer hands down & takes tons of pictures & fun poses & ideas. Every other professional studio we have worked with edits every single photo in High Resolution which Jaylynn does not, you are lucky if you get a few edited photos. Other studios also charge set rates vs the constant changes rates depending on who you talk to when you call. The other companies have always included a fully edited high resolution CD with your photo session.Example, the company we have used the most that does this is amazing ( we would go back to them if they hadn't had to raise prices as much as they did) but for $200, no limit on the # of people in your group, in studio or outside, glamour photos or just traditional photos, we have gotten about a 3 hour time frame with the photographer and have received a full edited high resolution CD with all our photos in color, black & white & sepia tones. Sadly Jaylynn does not & they again are not even edited. You are never offered a CD with your photos all edited in High Resolution, you have to ask if they have CD's & they never tell you they don't edit them. We have had the flash stands in our photos & very dark or very overexposed photos & ones that you can see one background to another on your photo but yet you paid I believe $300 for this CD on top of the sitting fee. Sadly Coverlook has really gone downhill over the last few years & honestly not knowing if the brushes ever get cleaned from customer to customer & not knowing the amount of germs that must be in the makeup, has pushed us away from the Coverlook side as much as we love it because we don't know what other customers skin conditions or germs are being put on our face. They don't do anything fun for the holidays with backdrops or props for fall/winter/spring/Christmas/summer & they really need more background options.
I love working with Derek. He does an amazing job every time. He is very patient with his clients and is very helpful throughout the entire process.
I've had nothing but great experiences here, I went and had my First Glamour Photo eight years ago. And it turned out just Gorgeous, never thought I could look like that. Cynthia is a great Photographer, and quite knowledgeable in her craft, very satisfied with my experiences here. Me and my Daughters just recently had a sitting and had a great time. Just waiting to see the end result, have always liked Jay lynn. Was where I had my first baby picture taken in the 50's. Man, I'm 62 now. I'm sorry you all had a bad experience, though.
Garbage so unprofessional poor quality photography. So over priced for the amateur work!! Very unhappy limited background choices not a good place to have a baby or child photographed. Way over priced for the poor quality of work. Cheapest package 200 haha adorable .ya right!!! Shop around people do settle for this place.
Great Studio and great experience! Everyone was so friendly and really made us feel very welcome! I came in with my two sons and my husband and you know when dealing with men, they hate getting their photos taken; however, time flew by and we all had such a great time that we almost forgot we were in a photography studio. Anyways, we really love JayLynn!
JayLynn Photography Studios were complete professionals! My family enjoyed our experience and felt right at home with our photographer. The environment was great and we were able to take a variety of shots provided in their studio. we thought having family members with disabilities would be a concern but JayLynn Studios took care of us and went at a pace that made us feel important and special. I would recommend JayLynn Studios to anyone looking to make a family memory look its best.
My family and I went through JayLynn for our family portraits. We went into the canyon for the fall autumn leaves and scenery. The photographer knew the best spots and was very fun and professional! We had quite a few younger kids with us but the photographer was very patient and they listened to him! The overall experience was a great time, we almost forgot we were getting our pictures done. The finishing look of our portraits were fantastic! We will for sure be working with them again.
I am honestly really suprised about the negative posts about Jaylynn Studios!As soon as I walked through the doors, I was greeted immediately and with the warm atmosphere I really felt like family. Dave, the owner, was the person I set up my appointment with, and he was so nice and fun to talk with. He really gets you feeling like your important and that really meant a lot to my family and I. The photographer Jacques( I think that's how you spell it) was amazing, not only was he very funny and likeable but you could tell he really knew his stuff! Overall my experience was very excellent, even ordering the pictures gives you a sense of importance! You are taken in a private room and shown your pictures on a big screen and the entire process wasn't rushed at all! The photos turned out beautiful and I couldn't be happier! I will definitely be returning to JayLynn in the near future!
Shilo was very professional. She was excellent with my kids and our family! I love how our pictures turned out. She has caputred 'our family' character every time we have used her! We have used her for our children's pictures as well as our family pictures. I would recommend her for any occasion!
