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.

We went with Lighting With Love Photography based on the Thumbtack reviews and the website. Let me tell you, we made the right choice! Lynette was incredibly kind during our pre-wedding emails, and very accepting and patient when at the last minute I had to make a slight change to the time. Ours was a small wedding, so we got to work directly with Lynette. When she arrived for the wedding, we were absolutely blown away by how pleasant and fun she was (is). I gave a brief 411 and left it in her hands. I was able to focus on other aspects of our party/wedding knowing that Lynette was going to take care of things on the photo side. She's super quick with the camera, which is great. She actually managed to snap a photo with my father-in-law smiling! (and got him to let out a tiny laugh). It was a quick turnaround on the pictures. Wow! There's so many great pictures! Let me tell you, she was busy with that camera...snapping pictures from all over the place, getting so many different angles of the ceremony. We couldn't be happier! If we have another occasion where we want a professional photographer, without a moment's hesitation, we're going with Lighting With Love Photography. You should, too.

Melody was GREAT. While this was my first ever photo shoot, I must say, Melody has upped my expectations from future photographers because she did an AMAZING job at the photographs and the way she conducted herself. Having said that, I will likely take my next session with her very soon :)

Ryan was extremely creative and professional. He took a ton of pictures at several locations and didn't rush or get inpatient during wardrobe changes or location changes. Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer for any occasion. I was looking for a unique photographer instead of a large corporate chain with the same old backdrops/poses and Ryan was exactly what I wanted.

Jeffrey is the most down to earth professional photographer I have ever worked with. There is not enough space to write how amazing he is in words. Not only does he make you feel comfortable but he also takes the time to make the image you want come to life. I'm very picky and Jeffrey made me feel at ease from the second he walked by making jokes to lighten the mood. He just "gets it," he knows what angles work and he's ready to get down on the floor if he has to and is willing to help in every way. I am going to be making Jeffrey my photographer for every modeling shoot I need. I'm a singer and I was shooting a video while he took motion shots. He was there for longer than anticipated and didn't even look anxious to leave or rush the job like other people would. It has been such a confidence booster to have him around and I really feel like we built a good relationship. Even though we just met I feel like I could call Jeffrey anytime just to chat. Thanks Jeff!

J was an OUTSTANDING hire for our event. We hosted an alumni reception in Detroit and didnt know any photographers in the area so I looked to Thumbtack. He really worked with our requests and captured everything we wanted! He made sure to get the committee and staff photographed, all of the photos has great lighting, a majority of the photos were staged with alumni looking and smiling at the camera (name tags visible) which is fantastic and exactly what we hoped for! It takes a great photographer to ask people to stage for the camera and yet also capture excellent candid photos. I wish we could use him for every market we visit! Even before the event, he was very professional on the phone and in correspondence. I would recommend him to anyone needing an event photographer.

Verified review

David was very pleasant, prepared, easy to work with, and was well equipped. I was a little disappointed with the final outcome and I should have reviewed the photos on the camera prior to leaving the site to make sure that we had captured what I wanted. My mistake was not reviewing on-site - so once I flew back home and received the photos, it was too late to shoot more without the added expense of another shoot.

Excellent photographer! We hired them for our engagement shoot and civil wedding. Highly recommend Tyquan and his team! Tyquan did our engagement shoot and did a phenomenal job, EXCELLENT photos and we were super happy with everything! He helped us with all the poses, where to shoot, angles, etc. and was very fun to work with. We thought he did an awesome job and were super impressed. He was really laid back and let us checkout the photos as he shot them. Went the extra mile and beyond with everything and definitely made everything very light, easy and fun! The photos during the civil ceremony were incredible as well! Overall they did an awesome job, were very responsive and always available for questions (we usually text, and Tyquan gets back to us very fast), great group of guys, all super nice and easy to work with throughout. Definitely keeping these guys as my #1 pick for what comes next for us (baby showers? other events!). Overall my wife and I were and are super happy with -everything-! Again, amazing photos, fun to work with, great group of guys and they definitely know their stuff! Thanks again for everything and keep up the great work!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.
