They communicate well via email, my photos are crystal clear and they gave me good advice for my model portfolio.

I can't believe how easy this was. I filled out their online form during the weekend, and got a response first thing Monday (as indicated). The photo I sent in was not cropped correctly, so they cropped it and sent me a proof right away to make sure it was what I needed and it looked great. As I was unable to come in during their business hours, I let them know to ship them to my home address. They responded right away that they were sending them out via Fedex Ground. All of our communication was very prompt and took place over a couple hours at most. As I had an audition the same week, I was a little skeptical if they would get to me on time, but sure enough, they were delivered the next day! As they were my first head shots, I was a little skeptical and being hard on myself, but I took them out and was thoroughly impressed. Thank you so much, J & S!

Overdue review, it's been a few months and they've moved since I picked up my pictures. I was moving some things around on a closet shelf and came across some old proof sheets. Old as in don't even ask. These were taken by a friend for practice and a hell why not. I never went about enlarging any and have no idea what I did with the negatives. These also were the type of shots that I didn't want to take to Walgreens or CVS to have some teenage idiot making prints of. So I decided to find a place that deals with head shots and commercial photography.
My order was handled professionally, with quality prints priced just right. They were also completed a day early. I didn't have to get these printed up, however I'm glad I did, it was fun to take a look back in time.

LOVE this place! I go here all the time for my headshots. The guy here is awesome and helps me out a lot! I recommend this place if you need pictures or headshots printed out. Prices are really good and they get the job done right and quickly! THUMBS UP!

Not that they did something wrong, they just have not done anything at all! Or did not lift a finger.
Mainly it is a heads up for you, fellow photographer.
They take JPG files ONLY via email. My problem was that I looked up their website briefly (did not notice that, did not call in advance) and hoped on my bike. Biked little over an hour and once there I was instructed, that they would not accept my files unless it is delivered via email. No thumbdrive not SD Card. Nada.
It is good that I had my laptop with me.
- Do you guys have a Wi-Fi so I could quickly email it to you?
- No, we do not have a public Wi-Fi, I was told.
- Do you know any other photo lab around that would take my SD Card?
- It's like asking a water for another restaurant.. - guy mumbled something. And handed me his business card.
I just had to turn around and bike back for another hour until I was able to reach my not-public Wi-Fi. I though I will share my brief encounter with this photo lab rather than emailing my files this time around.

If I could give these guys 100 stars, I would.
Friendly, willing to help, fast, and skilled. Grateful I met them! Best photo developing in Chicago!

Love this place. I've had four rolls of 35mm film processed here and the results were far beyond anything I could've expected from my unskilled hands and it's 100% due to their work. I will continue to have my film processed here for as long as I'm in Chicago. Their prices are great but in the end, if you're an occasional film photographer, then it's the end product that really matters and these guys transcend any other place I've been.
Just a note. They do take credit card but they'd prefer you to use cash if your order is under $10.

Gorgeous, durable paper. They put my name on a landscape head shot, and it looks professional and sleek. Quick turnaround--less than a day for 25 prints with no retouching. Will order again!

Love these guys. They've printed two rounds of my headshots now and I'm going to be sending them portfolio prints very soon. Couldn't be nicer.
Review by Kenyona7 years ago
I've used J & S several times over the past few years for headshots and have always had a good experience. They are remarkably nice, extremely easy to work with, and the quality is excellent. I don't recall if I've used their rushed services, but their regular service seems quite fast to me. I will use them again.

I called in for a last minute job on a Saturday, and they accommodated me with ease and professionalism.
I was able to email my image to them, and they completed a small number of prints within an hour or so. They made sure to get my approval of the print before printing as well. When I arrived before closing, my order was ready, and the owner was friendly.
Their entrance is in the back, where the parking is. Their prices are listed on their website as well, and they're fairly reasonable for the quality. I was very pleased with my experience.

2-3 day turnaround. Good pricing. Excellent results; nice paper and color. Much better than the last printer I used.
Review by DeathWishMCSV9 years ago
I am a freelance makeup artist in the city. I moved back to Chicago a few months ago and needed some portfolio (9X12) prints done to update my book. I looked for reviews and came across J&S Photo and people were raving about Jerry and Sharon so I thought I would give the business a try. Now I am the one raving about J&S Photo!! I wish I had work to drop off here everyday just so I can see these amazing people. The service is excellent and the quality of the prints are great. The turnaround is so quick and the prices are very competitive. After only one visit they remembered me which is rare in customer service. I have been back 3 times and will continue to take any photo work to them! Jerry and Sharon you are appreciated. Thank You.

Fast. Professional. Competitively priced.
J&S printed my newest color headshots and they turned out beautifully. The paper and color quality was wonderful and they were ready in three days. I will definitely go back for all my headshot reprints.
