I'm sure every portriat studio have good and bad associates. It really depends on the photographer you get and how customer service oriented they are. Most of the photography chains such as these are more focus on "sales" and not so much the photography aspect. I went to JCPenney in Eden Prairie. It was a really far drive for me but it was the only place that would let me bring my dog. I thought the photo session went okay. I had 3 outfit changes with 3 different backgrounds and a lot of different poses that I want. Knowing that they book their appointment 10 minutes apart that it wasn't going to be good. Also, I knew right away that my photograher was a newer girl. She didn't really know how to pose me and my boyfriend so I threw in a lot of my ideas. I did felt really rushed and wished she would take more photos so that I can get different poses to choose from. It seemed she just took one shot of each pose.

At the sales station she did tried to upsell me but I know what I want. I went for the $3.99 sheet and that's what I sticked to. So I ended up getting 20 sheets for $80 something which was a heck of a deal! Enhancements are just ridiculously priced for $14.99 per picture so I didn't even bother with that. Her photography skills were okay. If I was given a professional camera I could have done a better job. I also had to tell her to crop my pictures for me because a lot of them were off center and not zoom in. I didn't like the pictures too much but I like my smiles and plus we had our dog, which I like.

Picking up the photos, they did try to sell us 3 extra sheets but we declined. I really do love the overall print quality of the photos. I thought the colors were very vibrant and clear, unlike some other places. So I thought for $3.99 a sheet, as long as I can find a good photographer I will continue to use them.

My husband and I had semi-formal portraits done at the JCPenney portrait studio. We had a confirmed appointment at 11 am on a Thursday morning. I can't believe how long of a wait we had. There can't have been that many people in front of us that ran longer than expected. WE DIDN'T GET STARTED UNTIL AFTER 12:30 PM! Somebody must have royally overscheduled. It was quite a frustrating experience. What's worse is that the other folks who had appointments and also had to wait had young children. Those poor kids -- I don't see how any of them had good portraits after the ordeal they went through while waiting.

Anyway, the actual portrait session went well.

When we came back to pick up our portraits, of course they tried to upsell with every breath they took. Other than that, the actual portrait session and pickup were okay.

But I won't have any more portraits done here. Even Walmart has better service than what we experienced.
