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.

If you are reading this review look no further! Lynette from Lighting with Love is AMAZING! We found her on Thumbtack.com with a handful of other photographers. After reading her reviews and checking out her website we knew she was the one! Lynette is fun, friendly, creative and an absolute pleasure to work with! We planned our entire Detroit wedding from Charleston S.C. and Lynette was incredibly easy to work with over emails, phone calls and texts. She was quick to respond to messages and was pretty flexible with everything. She was very professional and the quality of her work is top notch! Her wedding packages were reasonable priced and the entire experience turned out better than we could have asked for! On the big day she was everywhere! She captured every little detail and every special moment from every angle. We only had a handful of photo ideas and left the rest of the photos up to her. Lynette was so fun and creative! She had great ideas for picture poses and our wedding photos turned out WONDERFUL! She captured every detail of the day beautifully. From hair and makeup, to the ceremony and the reception, she photographed it all! She even rode our party bus to get the behind the scenes photos in between locations. Throughout the entire day she was smiling and laughing with us. She was even able to tame our rowdy bridal party and keep us focused and on time for the other events. Lynette’s website design for photo review and ordering is great and easy to work with as well. We were able to review and download every single picture. And there were a ton! You can share the login with family and friends so they can review and order prints for themselves as well. Lynette was sweet, fun, professional and creative which made for some of the easiest, no stress wedding planning a bride could ask for! Stop looking and hire Lynette, you will love working with her and you will love the amazing photos!

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.

So so so easy to work with, Britney & Chad braved 30-degree weather ALL DAY LONG for my running event. Loved working with Britney in the prep and execution of the event, who went above & beyond my expectations for our photo booth. I can tell they have so much fun with what they do and truly enjoy photography & being a part of major events! Thanks to both of you <3 Highly recommend!!

Jeffrey Pask is one of the most kindest photographers/videographers out there. He is professional and personable at the same time. If you have a creative/fun idea for your project, he will most-likely always be up for it. Jeffrey helped me start my modeling/acting career by shooting my first photoshoot ever. Since it was my first time, I was super nervous. He saw that I was nervous and made me laugh the whole time with his hilarious jokes. That really reduced the tension of it being my first photoshoot, and after that, I decided I wanted him to be my main for all of my photography needs. If it wasn't for Jeff, I wouldn't have such a great portfolio to show agents and casting directors. He is dedicated and will always make sure that you get the results that you want, even if it entails a 9 hour shoot! ;)

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.

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!

Pete is a seasoned commercial photographer and quickly grasped our needs for photos of our building, management team and workspaces. He worked well with our staff to produce great quality photos for our website and internal communications. It's great to work with a pro who knows what to do and goes the extra mile to make sure we're satisfied with his work. Hope to work with him again.

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.
