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.
Lynette was wonderful to work with! I booked her for my September 2017 wedding and then last minute decided to have engagement pictures in February. She found us a beautiful indoor location to take the photos since outdoor photos were not an option. Lynette was very easy to work with and made us feel at ease. My photos turned out great and everyone commented on how beautiful the background was. I would highly recommend booking her for your photos!
Melody was very accommodating, offered great value, and took some terrific pictures of my family. She was professional and creative in her ideas for the types of photos we might like. We appreciated her service and would use her again! - Jon
Patrick was fantastic! Reliable, easy going, and professional. He took time to send us shot locations before our photo shoot and let us choose what we wanted. He worked with my ideas and allowed us freedom to have fun with our family photos. He kept in good touch with me prior to the photo shoot and was very friendly. Also reasonably priced. I am excited to see our pictures.
Based on a referral, my fiance', Gary, and I hired Ryan Jakubowski for our wedding photographer. From the initial contact with Ryan, through the delivery of our wedding pictures to our front door, he was knowledgeable, helpful, personable and professional. We found Ryan so easy to work with! On our wedding day, he maintained a balance of providing direction and allowing space. Although our ceremony included a small group, and was relatively brief, he was creative and thorough in capturing all the poses and moments that we wanted, and we will cherish the pictures. We are sure Ryan would provide the same high level of service and professionalism for any size wedding event!
I am very happy to have met and hired Jeffrey to be the photographer of my mother's 80th birthday party & family reunion. Very professional and respectful all while asking people to get in the right position for the photo shoot. I receive many positive comments from family members on Jeffrey's professionalism and friendliness. For my next event, I will be contacting and hiring Jeffrey Loos Photography!
Anne was so Nice and patient with our kids!! She had everything u can need for the photoshoot in her big IKEA bag 😄 We loved working with her and we already planned our next outdoor photoshoot!!! She's the kind of person u wanna hire for ur family photoshoot coz she doesn't stress u out even if the kids loose it!😅 And of course the photos are beautiful!!
Photographer was very professional, on time and easy to work with. She provided beautiful wedding pictures and captured all of the highlights of our wedding. She provided samples via an email link within a couple days and a full hardcopy Dvds within six days. I highly recommend this photgrapher.
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! ;)
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!!
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!!
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.
She took amazing pictures of our family. We had 26 people and she was able to make sure everyone was seen in the pictures! I can't wait to get married so she can do the pictures for my wedding!!!
If I had choice I will give 10 stars to Jon. He is one of the most passionate person I have seen in my life. Very enthusiastic and detailed Photographer. He is very personable and will bring best out of you. He is good photographer for everyone , and best for the ones who dont like taking their own pictures.
Highly professional and high quality photographer with a dedication and passion for his work! Everyone compliments the work that Gil has done for our family and friends!
The photographer was punctual, and was patient regarding finding great spots (outdoors) for taking the photos. Very professional and personable.
Paul arrived earlier than expected and stayed later than what we'd contracted him for. He performed the tasks efficiently. We barley knew he was there. He was very professional. All of our guests commented on his professionalism and how well he did his tasks. I highly recommend him him to anyone seeking a photographer for an event.
Nice photographer to work with. Very creative and respectful.
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.
