Mary-Claire Fitzpatrick, Apr 19, 2018 - Dublin City University

I am extremely disappointed with the quality of my photographs. I feel there were very few taken in total, and when it actually came to selecting the photos there was literally only 1 I could choose where no one was blinking, everyone was smiling, the photo wasn’t lob-sided etc in the same photo. I paid over €100 for my grad photos, and I can’t understand why a few more photos from each angle wasn’t taken. The photographer said herself we came at a quiet time, and no one was waiting behind us in line. Of the three photos I picked, I was only ‘satisfied’ with one. Complete waste of money and very disappointing experience overall.


Reply from Lafayette: Thank you Mary-Claire for your response. I have checked your images and in total there were 32 images taken of you and your family. The reason why we take so many is to capture a good pose of everyone one in the photo. If you want to look back at the images and call 014295740 at your convenience I will help you with a better pose of each image. Kind regards Gwen.

A Prompt Pleasant Professional Experience.

Ardit Hoxha, Apr 15, 2018 - Dublin City University

Staff and the photographer were very friendly. My issue was that the photographer did not care about my pictures and the results of how I looked during them. Now that I have had the chance to look at my photos, I saw on the album of options photos were my mothers eyes were half closed, my brother was speaking mid sentence and my personal photographs were not how I would have liked them personally. Not worth the price and I would not recommend graduates get their photos taken on graduation day as it seems there are too many students getting their photos taken and photographers are too busy to care on individuals.


Reply from Lafayette: Thank you Ardit for your response, I have gone to your images to check your Mothers eyes and out of 31 images there is one the very last image that your mothers eyes are partially closed and we upload all images just in case you like the expression on everyone in the photo as we can edit the eyes if this is the case. We open 2 hours before your ceremony time as there are no queues before hand but after the ceremony is when it is the busiest time hence the reason why you felt the was a lot of people. Kind regards Gwen.

Kevin Hosey, Apr 15, 2018 - Maynooth University

The photographer was very professional (I can't recall her name unfortunately) but she really helped us get the best photos possible. My family and I were extremely happy with how the photos turned out, and the process of selecting the photos online was a great experience. Thank you very much!

Joe Neville, Apr 15, 2018 - Dublin City University

The various graduate packages are too prescriptive.. For instance I only wanted one hard copy photograph and one digital but I was told I would have to pay an additional €26 for the digital copy.

George Kuria, Apr 15, 2018 - Dublin City University

Best experience. Would highly recommend.

Emmanuel Tebrise, Apr 14, 2018 - University College Dublin

Your staff professionalism was the best, all of them on the graduation day. Regards, E. Tebrise

John P. Connolly, Apr 14, 2018 - Dublin City University

We were absolutely delighted with the professional service you gave us on the day of the conferring. All of the staff we met could not have been nicer or more helpful. Thereafter, the selection process was very swift and having the photos about a week or so later was unexpectedly so efficient. Lastly the quality of the photos is superb, couldn't be better. Absolutely fantastic service. Well done and thank you for making the whole experience such a memorable one.

Tessa Cornally, Apr 13, 2018 - Maynooth University

It was great to get the photos in the post. The quality seems very good. The whole process on the day seemed a bit rushed however.

Joseph Wallace, Apr 13, 2018 - National University of Ireland Maynooth

Very good. Cost reductions would be well received

Markus Benson, Apr 13, 2018 - Trinity College Dublin

Most pictures had a shine on my glasses, different poses included, Photographer could have taken at least one picture without glasses (if I had known at the time...)

Maria Kennedy, Apr 13, 2018 - University College Cork

Very happy. Few different options of photos, effort to have everyone looking their best, good lighting

Robert McDonald, Apr 13, 2018 - Dublin Institute of Technology

The price is absolute robbery. A lack of information & choice given to students means you run a monopoly. These pictures were the only reason I went to the ceremony and prices are extortionate. Don't say it's with all the overheards because that's not true. Only the case if DIT charge you extortionate prices for renting the rooms, in which case I can contact them. Absolutely disgusted and would not recommend.


Reply from Lafayette: Thank you Robert for your response. I would like to explain to get a photo taken with a professional photographer in a studio is normally at lot more expensive then what you paid on the day of your ceremony. I am sorry you feel this way after using Lafayette Photography services as both the college and our website explain in detail all the information that you need to know regarding prices before your ceremony day. Kind regards Gwen.

Marika Ceschia, Apr 12, 2018 - Maynooth University

Very satisfied

Jim Cullinan, Apr 12, 2018 - IBEC

I may have got what I selected in error on your online system out of sheer frustration as its so awful to use. I definitely did not get what I wanted after paying 80 euro extra. Very unfriendly system. kept bouncing me around in a loop while trying to select photos. Could not clearly differentiate what was included in the original 45 euro paid on the day and the extras I was ordering. Lack of clarity about what I was getting for my money, eg what was going to be on the USB stick.

Annette Hurley, Apr 12, 2018 - College of Naturopathic Medicine

Very happy with my photos, thank you

Kirstie Alison Muldoon, Apr 12, 2018 - Maynooth University

I was not happy with the photographs to choose from. Some were not straight the photo was taken at a crooked angle, and the majority of the photos were head shots or without my scroll. The photographer didn't correct the way I was standing or looking at the camera. Out of the photos I could only choose from two. I am very unhappy with the quality of the photographs.

Deirdre Leahy, Apr 08, 2018 - University College Cork

Photographer was excellent - a listener who paid attention to small details!

Bríd Dunne, Apr 04, 2018 - University College Cork

I had to ring to guide me through the ordering process that i did not mind however I did feel that the telephone interaction could have been a more friendly. Also the frame was cracked on arrival , I sent an email on the 23rd of March , no reply had to ring about it today the 4th of April.

Marie Mcelligott ryan, Mar 29, 2018 - University College Cork

impressed with the friendly photographer and speed at which photos were available online. Many thanks

Shanelle Waring, Mar 29, 2018 - Dublin Institute of Technology

Gwen was so helpful when needed to order more prints. Rang me back within the timeframe she'd given, So professional at all times. Pictures were perfect.

Maria Collins, Mar 28, 2018 - University College Cork

Photo taking process was very fast and the photos came out lovely!

Yana Zakharchenko, Mar 27, 2018 - Dublin Institute of Technology
