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 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!
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.
