The quality of the photo I got for my Sadies dance was fine.
It's a memory photo, but every time someone see's it they point out the fact that on the right side it goes passed the back ground and shows some of the room the photos were taken it.
No very professional, hope the others don't turn out that way.

BOOO Josie Photographics. If I could give negative stars I would. We have dealt with her four times through our daughters school pictures. EVERY one of them was an exercise in frustration around partially filled and incorrect orders, poor response if any to inquiries and lately disconnected phone numbers and cyber silence around emails. Who knows, maybe they are even out of business. I have been waiting THREE MONTHS for my daughters pictures. The check was cashed before school started. When I inquired she "didn't know we ordered". Seemed to take the money fine. Latest response two weeks ago was that they'd "RUSH" the pictures from the lab. Rush?? Where they hell are they being rushed from? Kuwait. Shame on them for taking money and running. We are supposed to trust the vendors that work with our schools. Not the high schools fault, but I can tell you that if a photo opportunity arises with this businesses name attached we are NOT participating.

I can confirm that they don't answer phone calls or emails. Two years ago I wanted to order more pics (not calling because of a problem), and they never returned calls or emails. Last spring, my son was charged an NSF fee from THEIR bank because the check didn't go through - but it actually DID go through, and never became NSF. (Banks present twice before going NSF - this one went through on the second presentation, but they still charged $30 even though they were paid). Again, couldn't get in touch with them to solve the problem. Just tried to call them today about my daughters pics taken 3 weeks ago and the line has been disconnected. Are they still in business? WE should learn our lesson by not dealing with this company. It's too bad the schools aren't proactive enough to get another photographer.

The Pictures were nice but their customer service sucked. I ordered graduation pictures from them and took more than a month to get them. I had to email them several times and when i last emailed them they finally sent it out, that day! It only took one day to get to my house from when the envelope was postmarked. I understand that there was probably alot of people ordering grad pictures but i had to tell my family and friends for more than a month that they had to wait til my pictures came in. I would not reccomend them if you need pictures fast but the pictures are very nice. The only reason they got 2 stars was because i liked my pictures.

Just terrible!! My junior year at Prom they didn't print the title on the bottom of the photos. My senior year I order a low package just wanting the "Punch Out" wallet photos. When I thought I didn't receive them I called over 10 times, no response finally emailed, and when I got my replacement. They were not "Punch Out" When I sent an email she rudely told me how that package doesn't come punch out. Also telling me to just cut them out. THEY DON'T FIT IN A NORMAL WALLET. Never use them. The lady is rude, and terrible customer service.

If you don't have problems with your order then the service is good. Left a message and sent a follow up email letting them know I never received my pictures. Finally got an email response 1 1/2 weeks later saying they will provide refund. Just needed student ID, amount paid, and address. Sent all the information even the number of the cashed check number. Six months has passed and never heard from them again! Doesn't return calls or respond to emails. This business lacks integrity.

This is the worst company ever I paid for my daughters cheer pictures over two months ago and still have not got them I have called a million times and left messages and still have not got a call back I really wish I could have my pictures before the holidays. And next year if they have the same company I will take my daughter some place different for pictures. The worst customer service ever.

Josie Photographics made picture day quick & painless.
As a coach, I don't want to be bothered with Team Pictures.
I appreciate that Josie got my players in & out of picture process quickly. 90 kids organized & photographed in less than an hour & it was the best team picture we've ever had. We've had Josie do our football pictures for last 5 years.. I would not hesitate to recomend her.

Having this studio do sport pictures is a huge mistake. They sent me pictures of the wrong child and after numerous phone calls trying to resolve this problem, i have yet to have a phone call returned. They have no problem taking your money, but wouldn't it be nice to have photos of the correct child. I'm not asking for a refund, I just want the photos that have been payed for. As for the review that was written by the company, that they will resolve any problems. WELL that's impossible to do when you leave message after message and never get a return phone call. I've been trying to get a hold of this company all summer. Maybe the next time my son has sports pictures done i can talk to the photographer themselves to have this resolved. I'll definitely let the school know the problems I've had, maybe we can find a more dependable company to do business with.

Josie has done our company Christmas Card pictures for a number of years. More recently, she did professional head shots of each of my 13 employees. Each time we have worked with her, she has been professional, responsive, timely, and the photos have been great. In particular, the professional head shots made us look better than we probably are. I would not hesitate to recommend Josie, and we will use her again in 12 months.

My daughter has been at North Thurston for 4 years. I have tried many times through the years to get additional copies of pictures from sports and dances. My daughter and I left at least 20 messages for Josie to order more pictures and she never called back. I finally called the school and they told me this is a common problem with her and they had many complaints from parents and students.
I also find it very flaky that 2 of these "reviews" are from the photographer herself and the only glowing reviews are posted from "anonymous" and they sound really canned.

I just got my dance pictures back from Josie's. They turned out so good! I couldn't believe that we got them back in only 1 week. All the wallets were "punchout" so we didn't have to cut them in order to pass them out right away.
The background was sooo cool...it was an actual scene of paris with the eiffel tower and it looked so real. When I called to order an 8x10 over the phone. The people were really nice. It was affordable and I got to pick it up at the studio.
Josie's studio is right here in Olympia, why would any school use a photographer from Tacoma or Seattle when we've got Josie's right here.

I actually took the photos at the OHS Tolo and I have been working for Josie for some time and am quite experienced. The reason your wallets look so far away is because we can not take two different photos for the different size pictures. I'm sorry that you weren't happy with your photos, maybe next time they will be better.

Business Response:

Call the Studio If you call the studio, they can easily crop the picture closer and reprint it for you. Also, the color and can be re-corrected to balance out the red in the background. ;) Josie Photographics guarantees all their work, They will fix it for you. But you must call them
.

I am not that satisfied with the pictures. There's way to much red in the picture, from the background to the skin color.
The person taking the picture should've been up closer to the people in the picture. The wallets are so small that you can hardly make out their faces, almost a blurry effect.
The quality vs. the price of the package wasn't worth it! I think the photograher needs more experience before going out taking PROFESSIONAL Pictures and charging PROFESSIONAL Prices!
Won't be ordering from this company again.

My daughter's senior portraits were gorgeous! For Years I'd ordered school dance pictures with Josie, I thought I would call when my daughter needed senior portraits to
see what Josie offered. I was so happy to find out that Josie offered the most affordable senior portrait packages. I immediately booked a session for my daughter.
My daughter had so much fun at Josie's private studio. Josie had proofs ready for us to view within days. They were Awesome. We're going back for family portraits this summer!

We recently had our family portrait done with Josie.
I was amazed at how comfortable the studio was. She made my children feel completely at home. Consequently, the images of them were so natural and beautiful. She really captured their personality. I plan to have a session with her again. I have recommended her to many of my friends.
FANTASTIC!

I had a recent problem with my daughters' homecoming pictures from THS, and when I finally got a hold of someone (they weren't returning my phone calls, and still don't), they vowed to fix the problem. (the writing that said "homecoming 2007" was cut off at the bottom of most of the photos in the package that I received) It took a while to get the photos back, but when I finally did, the quality was HORRIBLE! The color was all faded, and it was as if they didn't care at all. I understand when you have a lot of orders to process, but there should be someone specifically doing quality checks and NOT sending them out to the comsumers until they have met certain standards. Due to the fact that I'm STILL trying to get a hold of them to fix the problem, yet again, and have left messages, but no return phone calls, and am unable to reach them personally (now their mailbox says "full-hang up and call again later"), I would NOT recommend them for your photo shoot, whatever it may be. Very disappointed in customer service!
