OMG….  I got married on July 11th and Jolie Images did my photography.   My pictures are the BEST BY FAR photos Ive ever seen from any photographer before.  The photos made every part of my wedding look even BETTER than it did in real life!   All my family and friends agree  that I got (for once in my life…lol) MORE than I paid for when I hired Jolie images to do my photography. Two of my bridesmaids used Jolie images as well and recommended me to them and I am forever grateful to them for that!   I will recommend them to anyone who is looking for the best photography at the best price.  They are amazing!

Glad I read this post. I have been talking with them off and on for a week and they have been VERY helpful and polite..I am glad another bride had success with them. Now I am not fearful to commit to them!!

I so glad I found someone who has used them! Their prices are amazing and I was worried that they’d be “too good to be true.”

Thank you!!!

I used Jolie Images too.    My pictures are awesome (we had over 1000 photos taken and Im a picture lover!)  and our photographer was great.  A few of my friends also had Jolie Images for their wedding photography and they are all as happy with their pictures as I am.   Great place…     Ive been recommending them to everyone.

i saw jolie images online and do careful research on them they are an employment agency for photographers starting out that is why they are so friggin cheap. just be careful

That what scares me when dealing with large studios. They hire wedding photographers for a change over CL??? And I am supposed to pay big bucks?! No way!

I saved one of the posts from CL where a studio was looking to hire a photographer from CL, unfortunately I couldn’t upload it.

As a LONG TIME employee of the Jolie Images lab I must  make a correction to the very wrong statement made by   Michelle Huang 84 .    Not sure where you got your information from but Im guessing that you are really from a competing studio.   Jolie Images has been around for over 35 years and is a professional lab as well as a studio. (which is why they have such reasonable prices)  The photographers that shoot for Jolie Images were chosen because they are really GOOD photographers and Jolie Images would know,  more than anyone else,  what a good photographer is since they do the  printing for hundreds and hundreds of photographers and had a very large choice of photographers to choose from.    Most of the photographers have been shooting for over 20 years and some even have studios of their own and are very well respected in the industry.  They are not an employment agency but a long standing , well respected, professional lab and studio.  I am a professional printer for them.   They are family owned and everyone, including myself, cares very much about our customers and our quality. When someone pointed out to me what was very faulty and very UNRESEARCHED statement I had to make a correction and set the record straight.

  • Wedding: June 2009

Hi, I’m new to this site… but I’m just now getting around to leaving all my vendor’s feedback (my wedding was June 6th! It’s been a busy summer though:-) I know that these boards were extremely helpful to me in planning my wedding and choosing companies to work with, so i thought I’d repay the favor by posting all my experiences on as many sites as possible.  I used Jolie Images because my bridesmaids, my sister-in-law, AND 2 of my cousins did. They all had great pix and I really couldn’t afford much more anyway.

   Anyway, I’m VERY happy with everything. i can’t believe what I got for the price. Not only are my pix great…but the photographer (shanee) and Leslie at the studio were so sweet and helpful!  I want so bad to do something nice in return and I thought some postings was the least I could do. I hope this helps for the original poster who was questioning this company. : In a nutshell, they seem too good to be true…and to me they still seem that way. I can’t believe I got the same quality pix and album that my older sister got…but she paid over TWICE as much (plus her photographer was a pill 🙂

 Good luck future brides. Hope you wedding was as fun and fabulous as mine!!!

 

PS, as a saavy online shopper who heavily relys on these reviews. I thought I’d mention that the personal photographer speculations and phoney posts are annoying and us smart consumers can spot a competing company with a grudge post a mile away.  I own a business myself and have been the victim of such posts. Very dishonest. Give it up and let the REAL brides do the talking! 🙂

Hi Hazel920,

I used them and I have only good things to say about them. I originally considered them for their low prices but after a phone call with them, I was sold. They are super nice and super “unpushy” which was a big plus for me. My pictures came out beautiful. I expected to get “decent” pictures for the price I paid but these photos are like art. My recommendation would be to get the package with the disc as I did. If you want the album later, you can always just pay the difference. As far as photographers, they will give you weddings to look at and you can basically choose whatever photographer you want based on their work. If you like the work of the photographer then I say go for it because they certainly are reliable and nice to work with. Good luck!
