i was in walmart and they had set up a traveling old time photo studio ( like they look like pics from the olden days with props and costumes)(NOT the regular picturemes that went out of business this year) i always wanted to get this done,but you have to pay ahead of time when u book the appt,NOT when u get the pictures done,then u come back another day to get them done,then a few weeks later to pick them up

my concern is they wont be there when i come to get the pictures taken,or even if they are there,that they wont be there when i come back to pick them up!

anyone ever see this at their walmart or had it done?

You have to pay the full amount and not just a retainer fee? I think I would be concerned too

They have things like here and they are legit. But I would research the company.

 I've never seen it in a Walmart,  but then I only see a WalMart about once a month. I would ask the WalMart manager. They had to talk to the Manager to rent the space.

I'm sure they wouldn't let just scammers scam their customers, but talk to a manager to make sure.

 I have one of those hanging over my fireplace and we got the pic within mi utes and it was taken years ago. The only thing we had to wait for was the framing and that was like an hour.

yes you pay ahead of time for the 11 by 14 and you can buy more the day of the pics

Those companies came about twice a year when I worked at Sam's Club.  They were legit.  I would research the company, though.  I can't remember the name of the one that went to Sam's.
