Custom photography is a luxury, not everyone can afford it. Marjorie is a very busy photographer so obviously people are willing to sacrifice and pay the price for awesome pictures. She's a great photographer and captures memories, not just your kids sitting on a table with a blanket saying cheese. You get what you pay for and Marjorie does awesome work.

Marjorie also takes the time to professionally retouch, color correct and edit photos from a session. Something that Picture Me and Olan Mills wouldn't even come close to on the skill level. It's all about the sale for them, not the client experience.

Well I agree with the other poster this isnt new York and her prices are to high, the setting fee alone is just crazy. She is good but their are others just as good and a lot cheaper. I know a lady who does awesome work and she gives you alot of pictures and poses etc. for your money her name is Lovessa Muncy anyone who is wanting a custom photography session should check her out as well.

We have used sears a couple times the first time the manager did our pics and they were beautiful, the second time another worker did them and they were horrible, I was irate when my pictures came back I paid 150.00 for crap! None of the pictures were centered up or anything it was awful, I havent been back since. I like olan mills and I also use Lovessa Muncy she is awesome.

Like I said, custom photography isn't for everyone. It's like comparing a McDonalds Cheeseburger to a steak from the Char, not everyone can afford the Char but some people can and that is how they stay in business. Some people are willing to invest in capturing their memories and are willing to pay the price. A lot of people tend to think that custom photography is so expensive when they spend as much or more on chain photography. The difference is custom photographers take the time to find out what their clients want and they don't put the pressure on to make a high sale, unlike major chain photography. Ask any main chain photographer what their managers tell them their focus should be, SALES SALES SALES! It's not about getting a good picture or making the client happy, it's about selling.

Sears charges $100 for 8 portrait sheets. THAT is ridiculous! I'd rather pay $150 or $200 and get a custom photographer who will listen to what I want and give me genuine pictures of my family than rely on someone with no photography experience to capture my memories.

Olan Mills was awesome when they were in Greenvalley. I haven`t tried them since they`ve been at Kmart but i`m sure their great. They work well with the kids and adults for that matter. The prices may be a little high but if your like me, you cant put a price on a childs age. You`ll have that pic to remember forever and how your child looked at that age and so on. Walmart may be cheaper, but for me, it`s all about quality!

Olan Mills SUCKS. I got my sons new born pics done there and I regret not going else where to have them redone. I have used sears and they are okay. As for Margorie she does do good work but good luck trying to get her to respond back to phone calls and emails!! That just shows she doesn't care to much about her clients. I've been trying for over a month so I gave up on her!! Try Nikki Painter. Very good photographer and always cares about her clients and work!

I had some family pics made at Sunny Photography in Mercer Mall. They were amazing and the prices are better than Olan Mills and Picture Me.
