First this company was a well owned, respectable family oriented company when Hal Lackey in charge of the business. Once the 2 spoiled brat sons started running it then it turned to crap. As a former employee the company basically hires you for crap wages and expects you to go above and beyond with no recognition or incentives if you hard work. If you are a parent i would be concerned as the "fundraiser" money is basically a hoax to justify their increased prices. Yes they do donate proceeds to the school....when may equal $1 dollar per package order, but this doesn't justify their prices that are so much more than other places.
As A parent i am concerned because employees don't even have to go through a background check, thus you never know the people that will be interacting with your children and what they have done in the past.
Schools are just as fed up as we are (parents) with the company but don't want to take the time and effort to change a process that they have been dealing with for so many years, a process that was amazing with they first contracted the company for their portraits.
Staff is very unprofessional but that is because they are treated so poorly and underpaid for the things they have to deal with. So my disorganization that i would say 30-50% of packages are incorrect.

Contact your school and let them know that you would prefer a more professional company.

The photographer was rushed and rude. They only sent 1 photographer for a school of more than 500. Usually they take everyones picture but this year decided to do only pre-paid. A mis-communication between the company and school. The background was cheap looking and not "spring"-like at all. I'm recommending that we drop them and look for someone more professional.

I am extremely disappointed in the quality and customer service of this company, Last school year, I paid for my childs picture, when they were taken. The check was cashed however, no pictures came back. I called Carolina Photography, was told "I" needed to present a copy/receipt of payment....I did the very same day. It was after Christmas that school year before I received the pictures. I got no apology, not a word, I absolutely DESPISE this company. The prices are outrageous....quality poor.

I find their pricing nothing short of gouging. They charge each school differently which for one is wrong and for two seems the poorer your school the more they charge. They will not work with you either! 2 pics for $90 is completely outrageous!! Hope none of you take your wallets to the slaugher with this company.

I agree, the graduation pix are extremely expensive. But if you wait, they will sell you a CD and the copyrights to the graduation pix for about $60 later in the year. Then you can go and have as many copies as you need made on the cheap!

I agree.Prices are high and quality is not the best. (Just wait until your child is a senior...whew! This year has been expensive). However, prices are probably higher because the school gets a cut of the profit. It is a silent, unknown fundraiser for many schools.

Out of the 9 years that my son has been enrolled within Catawba County school system, they have used this company and only 1 year were they worth purchasing. They require a pre-payment before photos are done and then they decide which photo is best. According to my children, they only take one shot. They are expensive for the quality. I would rather take them to have a professional session done, before I will pay for these.

Carolina Photography has been used by our children's schools for a number of years. The photos always turn out good. The only drawback of their photos are the high prices. In my opinion, you don't really get a lot for the money, plus, when you have more than one child, it can easily cost $100 for two packages.

I received my daughter's proofs and they are horrible. The photographers do not seem very professional and I refuse to pay for the photos that they took of her. To make matters worse, my daughter said that one of the photographers was so
