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.

I have worked with Mark on 2 separate ocassions. Once when he took action shots for the Chelsea Varsity Hockey team 2 years ago and again recently to have my daughters senior pictures taken. Both cases I was extremely happy. Almost too happy as it is almost impossible to choose which pictures we want to order. Thankfully, we are not restricted to a certain amount of posses like you are with some photographers. You order the posses and sizes you want. We saw some of the digital pictures the very next day, the balance of the shots within the week. Turnaround is very fast. He is very professional and open to new ideas. I will definately use his services again.

A home I recently staged had already been sold (was under contract), but I wanted to get professional shots for my portfolio before the Homeowner sold some of her furniture. Time was of the essence. I contacted "Craig Films" and Craig was able to meet me the next day. I was very impressed with, and appreciative of, the time Craig took to make sure he was getting the shots I wanted, (as I can be kind of picky). I was especially pleased, and relieved, with his attention to detail.. angling his shots to make sure nothing was in the background that would take away from the photo. Craig was very friendly, patient, and easy to work with. He took his time to make sure he captured everything I wanted.. and was very conscientious and meticulous. I was very happy with the final results. Thanks for the great photos, Craig!

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 :)

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.

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.

We had a fantastic experience with John Richmond last week! He took pictures of our family in front of our new home and also took us to some cool spots around downtown Rochester to capture some awesome images. Things I liked about him: 1.) John's approach - laid back, but gives direction 2.) John's personality - established great rapport with my 1yo & 3yo and got them to smile naturally and look at the camera 3.) John's rapid-fire photo taking - with little kids, you never know when the stars will align and everyone will be smiling at once. John captured some awesome shots of our family using this rapid-fire approach. 4.) John's responsiveness - from the first time I emailed him, John was quick to respond in a professional, courteous manner. I like his availability via text, phone, email, etc. 5.) John's patience - not only was he patient with my two small children, but he was also understanding and willing to retake shots where I felt self-conscious about one thing or another. 6.) John's attention to detail - from color schemes to stray hairs in the face, John was quick to point out and correct issues as they came up on site and was also able to digitally correct any blemishes after the shoot. We have found our new family photographer and couldn't be happier!

Vivek was truly one of a very kind photographer. He was wayy more than what I expected for. Not only did he told us the location but also had many good poses to suggest. He was quite professional and made us very comfortable. He went over the top to satisfy us with the pictures. Would highly recommend him to my friends and everyone to any kind of 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.

Chelsie is the BEST! She's been doing our family photos for 3+ years now and every time she surprises me with the quality of photos she gets... even when one of my toddlers wants nothing to do with having their photo taken! She never fails to come up with ways to get the kiddos to smile and makes the entire photo shoot fun and enjoyable for all of us. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for a great photographer.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
