Eugen was a pleasure to work with! He was professional, punctual, flexible and relaxed. He was great with our young children and really got them smiling! Our family portraits are the best we have ever had. Eugen is s true artist and it shows in his final product. We will for sure be using him again in the future!

My husband and I have worked with multiple photographers for professional and personal reasons in Michigan and could not have been more impressed with Kuwan and the Red Archie photography team. Kuwan is the owner and talent behind RAP. He is also highly motivated and easy to work with. Prior to the photoshoot (our package was 1 hour for professional headshots with 10 edited images), he provided detailed instructions and ideas for wardrobe and location and was even willing to move the date up when our plans changed. He responded to all our emails immediately and was very friendly from the beginning. The day of the shoot he arrived on location on time with a number of tools / camera equipment and was quick to set up and get started. He provided feedback on what looked best and coaching for the optimal posing which was helpful and allowed me to feel comfortable. We did multiple locations / outfit changes and he was patient and receptive to ideas as well as really optimistic with great energy. I appreciated him showing me some of the photos as well as going over the 1 hour window of time so we got all the shots we wanted and didn't feel rushed. In the end, the photos turned out amazing (I get so many compliments on how professional and flattering they are) and the turn around time was even quicker. Once we received the gallery of images and picked our favorites, he had them edited and finalized in 48 hours. We liked more than 10 so he threw in a few extra and made some minor retouching tweaks for me no charge... honestly, it couldn't have been better. I probably sound like a fake review at this point but after having headshots for 4+ companies / websites, this was the best experience I've had with a photographer so I'm happy to sing Kuwan's praises. I would highly recommend him and the Red Archie for anyone seeking portraits, headshots, or a website/business card/LinkedIn revamp. He is an amazing talent in metro Detroit.

tl;dr: If you need the best picture taken, go to Mark's Studio. I needed an upgrade for my linkedin profiles and personal websites. Honestly, all portraits I had before sucked, partly because I become very self aware when it comes to cameras. But Mark and his wife helped me a great deal getting comfortable in front of the camera. They really went out of their way to find the best angle, lighting, background, posture and expression for me. I don't think anyone can hope for anything better than this.

Melody did beautiful beach portraits! She is great at finding pretty locations. On a beach full of people she found a great area to take photos without all the people in it! Melody is professional and has a great eye for details big and small. I was really happy with the pictures.

Patrick went above and beyond as our wedding photographer! He was timely and professional, and was willing to stay overtime to ensure that he captured our entire wedding festivities. He took direction well, but also had plenty of his own suggestions as far as posing and helping with family/friend portraits. He was also very friendly and had an amazing personality. He definitely made our wedding day memorable and we received many comments from our guests about how fun he is. After the wedding day, he provided professional quality photos in a timely manner. Upon our request, he also did some time-consuming editing on quite a few photos for no extra charge. We also ordered the signature photobook which we were pleased with and again Patrick went above and beyond by being very flexible and making all requested changes. We are awaiting prints (at a great price!) which we expect will also be lovely. I highly recommend Patrick as a wedding photographer! He will capture all of the posed and candid moments from your big day at a very reasonable price. He will work and communicate with you to provide exactly what you are looking for even after the wedding.

I contacted Anne to take pictures of me for an online profile. I looked at her previous work and really liked what I saw, so I decided to give her a try. I'm really glad I did. She was prompt, professional, and very easy to work with. She made me feel at ease during the photo session, had great suggestions for poses, and I really liked the artistry of her photos. I wouldn't hesitate to hire her again.

We were thrilled with the entire experience. He came out to a family engagement party, and we started with a family portrait of 24 people, ranging in ages from babies to grandparents. He did a fantastic job of keeping everyone engaged and having fun while he got us all in the perfect position. He then stayed past our scheduled time (at our request) and took portraits of individual families, as well as mingled throughout the event capturing all the great moments. Best of all, the proofs are posted online so everyone can choose the exact prints they want to purchase. We received so many positive comments from family members about how fun yet professional he was. I would definitely recommend J Singleton Photo for any family portrait or group event. We couldn't have been happier.

Michael was brought in to take shots at our state convention. We gave him little if any direction on what we expected, and as it turned out his portrait photos became the highlights on our national campaign literature. He understood what we needed better than we did ourselves. Good job, Michael.

We needed a traditional studio portrait but also wanted to get a few pictures in the late afternoon sun if possible. The weather cooperated and GE of A2 Press Photography was able to shoot both for us. GE was also able to provide digital editing to our selected photos. He worked with our time frame, was responsive, and easy to reach via email or text. We are happy with our pictures and had a fun time taking them.

Her work is filled with heart. Her camera seems to find the best in her subject, and it isn't surprising because she is very warm. She is able to put the most nervous, doubtful person (me) at ease in a relaxed and encouraging way. She has an amazing eye, is very thoughtful about lighting and subtle changes in a pose...very much an artist with a very special gift. And the results are stunning.
