Payne and Payne Photography

Q: How long has Payne and Payne Photography been in business?

A: Established in 1960, Payne and Payne is a family owned and operated business serving the Sacramento Valley region for over 50 years. We’re proud of the strong relationships we’ve built with our customers.

Q: What advice do you have to make sure we get a good picture taken?

A: Consider practicing smiling with your student. This is the best way to get a natural smile. Wear colorful clothing. Have fun combining a favorite outfit with the many backgrounds that are available. Bold stripes, plaids, checks, and prints can sometimes be visually confusing and may not photograph well. If your student is getting their hair cut before picture day, try to have it cut at least a week in advance.

Q: May I use my credit card?

A: Yes. Paying with a credit card is fast, easy and secure. Use our Prepay online service from the main menu.

Q: I forgot to give my student the payment envelope. What are my options?

A: You may drop it by your school’s main office on picture day (only). Otherwise, call our office and we can take your order over the phone. It is very important that you contact us as soon as possible to ensure that your order is placed with the rest of the school’s order so it will come back to school at the same time as the other students’.

Q: Do you have promotions for me?

A: Yes. At our Blue Shutter Blog you can find them.

Q: My pictures came out really well but I didn’t order enough. How do I get more?

Q: Am I able to make copies of the pictures I purchased?
