Booking Appointments (Single and Groups) - 10 is the maximum number of subjects that we can fit in a photo
Call 817-626-7131 and speak with any Museum associate. No appointments are made or acknowledged via voicemail or email.
You must know your exact total of subjects that will be photographed at the time you book your appointment. We base our photo-session time slots on the total number. Should your group grow in size, we may or may not be able to accomodate the extra subjects during your booked appointment. The booking of all our appointments is based on total numbers.
The photo session includes only one background during the photo shoot. An additional photo background shoot is considered a new photo shoot.
A $15.00 (+tax) non-refundable deposit is required to book an appointment. The $15.00 fee goes toward your final purchase. The balance will be the remainder of the basic photo fee plus any additional purchases (photos/cds/etc.).
All appointment times are held for 10 minutes. Please let us know if you will be late. We will do our best to hold the appointment. If we can't (due to a photo scheduled behind yours), you are allowed a 1-time reschedule. Do to other bookings, we may not be able to rescedule you for the same date. Your booking fee will apply to the rescheduled appointment. If we do not hear from you we will release the appointment time and retain the deposit. You will be required to make a different appointment time and pay a "new" deposit for your new appointment. This is company policy, do not ask us to bend or break the rules.
Walk up photo sessions are welcome, however, we give priority to all previously booked appointments. Upon your arrival to the museum, if you are wanting an old-time photo made, you should immediately check in with our Museum Associates in the gift shop for the next available photo session and pricing information. To ensure you enjoy the fun of making one of our photos, we do suggest booking an appointment. Our Saturday, Sunday and holiday photo sessions fill up very early.
Our photo backgrounds and photographers may not appear as if there is a photo session in progress, however the photographer may be assisting a previously booked appointment or we are waiting for the next guest who has booked an appointment. If time allows, we will do our very best to fit you and your family/friends/group in for a photo session. If time does not allow us to fit you in the immediate time slot, we will offer you the next available appointment time should one be available.
A time frame example: A photo of one or two subjects takes approximately 30 minutes from start to finish. A photo of 5 - 6 takes approximately 1 hour. So sadly we cannot fit a 5 subject photo into a 15 minute time slot. When planning a large group photo shoot allow 1 hour for every 5 subjects in your photo. The Jersey Lilly Photo Staff wants to make sure your photo is fun and the photo is what you want - so we book all of our appointments to allow plenty of time for you to enjoy the process.
We can and do book appointments by phone. We will need your name, address, contact phone number and total number of subjects to be photographed. Please have your credit card information ready. We will not reserve a photo time slot without a deposit. The person booking the photo on the phone must be the same name on the credit card. Photo identification will be required at the time you arrive for the photo shoot. We will not accept a credit card for payment if the name on the card and photo id do not match. The appointment will be cancelled. Sorry, but there is no exception to this rule. For your convenience, we accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover. We do not accept checks.
(1) No appointments may be made or are acknowledged by voicemail or email. (2) We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. (3) We do not nor will not photograph any [suspected] inebriated (drunk) guests. (4) No beverages (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) are allowed inside Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame or The Jersey Lilly Old-Time Photo Parlor. (5) All rude, uncontrollable or unsociable guests will be asked to leave and the deposit fee will be retained. (6) Our costumes are vintage and we are very proud of them. To ensure that everyone enjoys the fun of dressing up, our skilled photographers choose all costumes for our guests. The photographers know the costumes and choose the best based on backgrounds and sizes. This allows the best look for your photo. Colors of the costumes do not have to coordinate, as your photo will be printed in Sepia (brown) tones. Please do not ask us to "match your costume with an accessory." (7) Large group photos (5 or more) require extra time for a successful old-time photo experience. Please allow up to 1 hour of photo time for every 5 subjects in your photo.
And #8 - the biggest of them all! - NO PERSONAL PHOTOGRAPHY IS ALLOWED DURING YOURS, YOUR FAMILY OR YOUR GROUP PHOTO SHOOT. This means any or all photos you may try to take on your camera, your video camera, your cell phone or other recording device. Should our Staff ask you to stop, we expect you to cease immediately. We also require you to delete any of the photos you have taken. If you do not stop and delete the photos you took, the JLOTPP photographer will stop the photo session immediately, ask you to leave and retain your deposit. This applies even if you are not having your old-time photo made by us. We do not allow personal photography of any of our photo background areas at any time.
