I used Jolie Images for my wedding photography and videography and I was HIGHLY pleased with the results. Not only was the photographer professional, she was kind, helpful, and quick! At my house while I was getting ready, she took amazing photos and was so creative. Then, at the church she was quick with family photos (because we all know that can take forever sometimes!) Then, we were onto our outside photo location and my bussel broke a bit and she waited and actually helped me with my bussel! This made me so pleased because she went out of her way to help me.
At the reception, she took absolutely priceless photos and I honestly could not be happier with the results. The photos were up in a week and all look amazing.
Please, choose Jolie Images. I can tell you that they are the best. The price is great, the service is great, and they are so helpful.
Photography was the thing I was most excited/nervous for when I started looking at vendors. Your photos have to be perfect because when the wedding is all over, all that's left are the photos. I stumbled on Jolie Images from a google ad that came up on my gmail. I went to the website to look at their prices and was really surprised to see how reasonable their packages were. Shortly after I entered my wedding information to check availability for my wedding date, a representative from the company called me to explain their packages and answer any questions I had. Once I booked, I called a couple of times with questions and everyone I spoke to was very helpful. We did our engagement photos through them as well and they turned out BEAUTIFUL. The week of the wedding, our photographer Vanessa called me to confirm details and go over the day. She was very professional and fun at the same time. The day of the wedding, Vanessa and her assistant were on time and professional. They got all the shots they needed without bugging anyone too much (things can get hectic in the bridal room!) and they were so fun to work with. Vanessa was always checking to make sure my dress and veil were laying right and that nothing was out of place. I am so happy with my experience with Jolie Images. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!
From the moment we met with Kira at the studio we knew we had chosen the right photography studio for our wedding. The package has so much for a nice low price. Everyone we worked with was friendly and had a smile on their face. Our wedding photographer was Agnes and she was a pleasure to work with. She got all of the photos we wanted and then a whole lot more. We did the 10 hour package and for all the bride to be's out there, you will NOT find a better deal so you can stop looking right now.
Max did the photography for my wedding and I can't tell you how extremely pleased I was with his professionalism and the amount of shots he got! I would highly recommend this company for anyone looking for a photographer in the Chicago area.
My photographer did a very nice job at making sure he took all of the pictures I wanted, as well as all of the pictures I didn't think of asking for. He kept everyone focused and on schedule. The videographer made sure she was always where the action was, without getting in the way of everyone else. The company was wonderful to work with, and well priced.
Dan was amazing!
The service and benefits offered with Jolie are the best prices in the area. The photographer did a great job getting all the shots I asked for and extras from his apparent experience. He dealt well with difficult photo subjects and kept everyone on track to stay within our window of time.
What a great choice!!! I cannot believe that I can say my photographer made my wedding day!! He was so attentive and in tune with what my husband and I wanted. He even assisted my matron of honor in tying my corset! He asked my hair dresser for pins just in case I needed a touch up throughout the night. So happy with this company!
In my other review, I focused on the photography. Here I will focus on the video. We just got our video and highlight dvd in the mail, and, if I had gotten to watch this first, everything would have been different. The highlight DVD is beautiful! It fits perfectly to the music my husband and I chose and it includes great shots of both of our families, as well as a handful of images of our ceremony and reception rooms. I am so glad that Randy was able to go back and give us a proper highlight DVD that even makes me nostalgic for my bat mitzvah and sweet 16 (I had highlight DVDs for those too and this one is now the one I enjoy watching the most).
I can't wait to watch the full video now that I have seen how special the highlight DVD turned out.
Thank you Randy and your team!
We chose Jolie Images mainly based on their very reasonable prices. On the day of the wedding, we were very happy with our photographer, Kelly. She was very sweet and had good ideas for photos, but was never pushy. We just got our photos back and they look great!
David made the day run smoothly. He was awesome and we felt like he was part of our family. He was very personable and down to earth. He was there on time and was flexible with us when deciding whether or not we wanted an extra hour added at the end of the night. I am so excited to see our photos. I know they will be perfect. Their prices are very reasonable and affordable for a wedding on a budget.
My husband and I got married on June 8th, 2013. I was excited to find such a great deal with Jolie. We actually ended up getting the most expensive package. Everything prior to the wedding went well, and I had no concerns going into the day. The day seemed to go well. The photographer was where he was supposed to be throughout the day. However, when we finally saw the online album and received our proof book, there were no pictures of me and my husband after the ceremony or at the post-ceremony photo location, there is no photo of my husband's first look at me when I was coming down the aisle, there were no pictures of the introduction of the wedding party, or of me and my husband cutting our cake.
We immediately emailed our contact at Jolie to find out what happened. We received no response for a about 2 months. Finally when we received our wedding video (used a different vendor for videography), we saw our photographer taking pictures during some of these key moments, so we knew they had to be somewhere. Finally after 2 months of waiting, they found another CD with pictures of the intros and cake cutting which they sent. Apparently there are no pictures of his first look or of me and my husband after the ceremony. Because of the inconvenience, they offered us a couple of free prints. Since we only had 6 months to order our prints/album, and we didn't receive all of our pictures until 5 months after our wedding, we got to work making selections.
I sent all of our print and album selections before the 6 month mark, followed up 3 times in the last month, and still have heard nothing back from them! So here we are, 7 months after our wedding, and I still have no prints or album.
Long story short, you get what you pay for with Jolie. Although it seems as though some of the other photographers who are specifically named in the good reviews do a nice job. I guess we should have requested a specific photographer.
I am so happy that we chose Jolie Images to do our wedding pictures. Our photographer Mitch was so helpful, personable and genuine it was like he was part of our family. He took his time and took every picture that I asked for. He made sure that all our requests were met and he added his own creativity as well. I can't wait to see the finished products!
Shanie was an awesome photographer, even stayed a little longer!
We were unsure if we wanted to spend thousands of dollars on a photographer for our wedding and decided to go with the most expensive package Jolie offered which was still cheaper than most other photographers.
We chose Peter aka PK. He was the nicest man. He showed up early and was so meticulous about his shots. He spent a lot of time photographing the dress, rings, flowers, etc as well a the bridal party etc. He was extremely patient with getting everyone in the right pose or light etc. it was supposed to be an outdoor ceremony but the weather didn't cooperate and Peter did a great job figuring out pictures or backdrops on the fly. He ws easy to work with and went above and beyond to get a ton of shots. He has a real eye for visioning what will look good.
We had Vanessa as our photographer and she was AMAZING! Gets the photos done quick but they are absolutely gorgeous! The price was just right for us as well. We couldn't have been any happier!
We had Daniel as our photographer and he was wonderful. He had a great personality that I instantly felt at ease and relaxed with him. We almost didn't get him though. Although I was told he would be assigned to me wedding date, a mistake occurred through the office and the information was never put on our contract. So a few days before the wedding another photographer called. After a few calls it was all sorted out and we got the photographer we wanted. Pictures are gorgeous!
Jolie Images is a big company with a lot of photographers that work for them. They were extremely reasonable with pricing. Far cheaper than anyone else that we contacted. They were also very easy to get ahold of and get all the information we needed and the contract signed. we did have to pay a travel fee because they are looked near Chicago and our wedding was up in Wisconsin, but even that was reasonable. They let me know right away that my photographer would give me a call the week before the wedding to set up all the arrangements for the day of. I absolutely loved our photographer. He was wonderful. His name is Mitch and he was more than just our photographer. He made sure that we had everything that we needed and that we were have as stress free of a time as possible. He was extremely friendly with everyone and made the picture taking experience a good one. He asked extactly what types of pictures we were looking for and he seemed to be capturing exactly what we wanted. The only slightly negative thing that I have to say is that it does take awhile to get your pictures. It is 4-6 weeks. My 4 weeks is up this weekend so I have not seen my actual pictures yet, but he did show me a few on his camera and they were great. We shall see.
Mitch was absolutely wonderful! He catered to every one of our needs through out the entire day!I would 100% suggest Jolie Images to any brides that are looking for GREAT photography at an even better price! They were great.
My wedding was in August 2012, I refrained from writing my review because of some issues I was trying to resolve with Jolie, the issues are still on-going.
As I only have 3369 characters left to use I will try to keep this short.
1.) 10 days before my wedding I get a call from Jolie and they tell me that my final payment is passed due when in fact it was paid 2 months early. Someone there never noted anything on my account and the did not even apologize for their mistake.
2.) I was told the photographer would contact me a week before the wedding, 2 days before the wedding I had to call them to say "Hey he hasn't contacted me", at which point I was told "He called you and left a message, you never called him back, we'll have him call again" SIDE NOTE: There was no missed call or VM I went so far as to check my phone records on my bill.
3.) The photographer was late (not by much but still, not something a bride wants on her wedding day).
4.) After the ceremony during pictures, the photographer took no control when taking photos. I've seen wedding photographers boss wedding parties around to get the photos they need. Not this guy.
The real problems kicked in after the wedding.
My photos we uploaded in a timely manner, I went online to check them out, only to see that there was NO PICTURE OF ME AND MY HUSBAND AT THE ALTER AFTER THE CEREMONY!!! Then a few pages in, there was an error and a picture was repeated all the way through the remaining photos (I thought "oh good, maybe the pictures of us are covered up by the error") I called JOlie and a young man on the phone said he would be sure to fix the issue. 2 weeks roll by and still nothing. Finally about a month after I call the photos were up correctly. However NO PICTURE OF THE BRIDE AND GROOM.
At this point I contacted Jolie via email and voiced my concerns, I was informed that apparently at one point I "motioned" to the photographer that I wanted absolutely no photos of me and my husband... SERIOUSLY?? They also said that I was the one that was late, not the photographer... Then in between the ceremony and reception, we went to the hotel and I ran upstairs to my room to fix my hair, the photographer was in the lobby, we met him down there at 5:00 to go next door for the reception, at this point Jolie informed me that I was late and the photographer had to come find me and then he gave up and went next door where my "entire" wedding party was waiting. That however was not the case, I was on time and there are pictures of us all walking over to the reception. My bridesmaids were the ones missing(obviously I do not fault Jolie for that).
Because I would probably need another 1,000 characters to finish this, I'm going to wrap it up.
Jolie Images took no responsibility for any of the mistakes their photographer made, instead they said everything was my fault. To this day I do not have any of my pictures in an album or the disc they owe me, nor do I have the 2 canvas prints either. The only real picture they have of me with my husband is while we were cutting our cake.
The photos on their website are beautiful, unfortunately thats not what I got. I even got their highest priced package. I have told several of my friends getting married not to use them. This was my wedding day and I don't have any pictures to remember it by. If you decide to go with Jolie, be cautious.
