Their style of working was immensely intrusive, with little to no regard for other professionals present, not to mention the guests. Their shooting style ignores the basic rules of photography so they wind up making amateur mistakes. Unacceptable for someone charging you money. When the "good" photos they post online feature numerous instances of half-to-full closed eyes, and people including the other photographers , that's a warning sign. Their method of payment is extraordinarily unprofessional and being unwilling to refund/cancel well in advance of the wedding is shady, showing a full knowledge of their work's downside, as (to my knowledge) they were unwilling to share a full portfolio with you until you'd paid them. I feel like I had to do their job for them when it came to gathering people for pictures or telling people how and where to stand! I was and am completely appalled by their work ethic and would not recommend them.
Thank you for your feedback and we appreciate your honesty. However, we are sorry and surprised that you did not have a good experience with Creative Photos By J Reid, since at no time were your concerns brought to our attention while working together. Though we are truly disappointed with your review, there are some things that are out of our control. Such as, people not being ready or paying attention, not enough time is provided or a timeline is not followed. We wish you and Beau all the past with your future endeavors.
Jane and Barb are easy to work with and listen to your requests. Do some really unique editing to the photos as well. Really accommodating.
I loved working with this company!! They are so fun and did a awsome job on all the pics!!!
Barb and Jane photographed our engagement pictures two years ago and they were the first ones I thought of for our wedding. They are an incredibly fun pair to work with and the pictures are always beautiful! I think it is an amazing advantage to have them working together because they capture so many poses and special moments that one photographer alone might miss. They also have exceptional follow-up skills and were very flexible with us before, during and after the wedding. They are willing to work closely with you to make sure that you get everything you want in the photographs of your special day. I will absolutely recommend Creative Photos to anyone looking for top-notch photography along with personalized service!
The ladies were great & got all the shots without being a bother! They made sure that we were able to enjoy ourseleves & they were just plain amazing! I would reccommend them to everyone!
Thank you Elizabeth. We couldn't help but have fun, the entire wedding party were crazy fun people! And the "Wedding Party" group dance, very unique and awesome!! Best of everything
Both Jane and Barb were great to work with! They took their time to find out what I wanted and I could not have asked for better pictures. Not to mention their prices were in my price range, very affordable! All I had to do was ask and they did their best to make it happen. I would recommend them in a heart beat!
Thanks Katie. We had a lot of fun working with you and Kevin. It was a great evening full of love and laughter!! We wish you both all the best!
My advice to future brides is have a plan of what you want with your pictures. Make sure your comfortable and confident in your photographer. I would refer a future bride to this company.
Good advice Miranda. I would also add, that you ask your photographer how much time should they allow for photos. We had a good time at your wedding and wish you and Justin all the best!
I used Creative Photos by J Reid for my engagment pictures as well as my wedding pictures. My husband is not very open to the idea of getting his picture taken and I felt that both Jane and Barb did a great job to relax both of us. From getting our engagment pictures done we received them in about 3 weeks. I was very impressed by the way that they also handled my wedding. I was of course a nervous bride trying to make sure everything went the way that I wanted it to, about a week before the wedding I had a phone call to just get everything in place. They really relaxed me and I felt at ease when I got off the phone. The day of the wedding, they both beat me to the church, and then took amazing pictures. They handled everything. I loved the quality of the photographes and really like the professional way they handled everything. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a photographer.
Thank you Meagan so much. You and Chris are such a lovely couple, we had a great time photographing your wedding. You guys had one of the best wedding parties, which only made our job easier!
We were very pleased with their professionalism and communication. The photographers worked well with our two large families. They offered many unique photos. There are several packages from which to choose and they will add or combine different products. Delivery was faster than expected. For great value and quality, go to Creative Photos by J Reid.
Michele your sweet. Thank you for the kind words. Both you and Steve were up for anything, which always makes our job easier. And creates some great photos!
Everything about Creative Photos is amazing! The prices are incredible, and the turn around time is almost immediate. I was so glad we chose to work with Creative Photos for our wedding pictures, I now have pictures that I can treasure forever because of these wonderful ladies! Thank you again! Your work is amazing!
Thank you Megan for trusting us to capture your wedding photos. The love you and Chris have for one another really showed in your photos. Everyone was so nice, and your wedding party was one of the craziest we photographed this year. We hope you enjoy your photos, half as much as we enjoyed taking them

Jane and Barb were wonderful to work with, they took our ideas and combined them with their years of experience to come up with artistic, one-of-a-kind photos of our special day.
Thank you Juli for your nice review. We had a lot of fun that day, photographing you and Pete. All the best.
Jane & Barb provided a professional and fun photography experience for our daughter's wedding. They captured every moment, and the lasting memories from pictures and video will be treasured. We'd recommend Creatiive Photos by J Reid to any bride-to-be.

Both of them and the entire wedding party were up for anything, which we always love because it make our job easier and it creates some great photos for them!!
I LOVED LOVED LOVED Creative Photos by J Reid!! Firstly, going through the process of planning for the wedding, they were VERY quick at responding to emails. At the wedding, the photographer with AMAZING. She got along GREAT with everyone who stood up in the wedding and made everyone feel very comfortable and at ease when taking pictures, which obviously led to better shots! She made the picture taking process very fun and was very kind/patient toward the end of the night when everyone starting getting difficult to find for the final pictures. Not only did I absolutely LOVE every picture that was taken, but all of my family and friends LOVED them as well. I would not have one bad thing to say about my experience with J Reid. So glad I picked her as my photographer for my special day!!! :-) Would 100% recommend her to ALL my family and friends!!
Thank you Mallory for the nice review. You, Kevin and the entire wedding party were such fun people, I couldn't help but have a great time with all of you. I am so glad you felt comfortable in letting Creative Photos capture your special day.
We received a flyer with info about Creative Photos by J Reid at the Palace bridal show and gave them a call to get more details. Barb Reid was very helpful in explaining everything, and we set up an appointment for Barb to come to our house for a visit. She brought a collection of their photography, and we immediately felt comfortable with Barb. It was the same way when we met Jane.
We scheduled a shoot for our engagement photos at a local park in the fall. Jane and Barb offered ideas and also were very receptive of ours. We spent more than three hours taking photos, and the sisters were very easy to work with and felt like old friends after that. We loved the final product, as did all of our family and friends with whom we shared the photos.
Before our wedding, we carefully detailed all of our photographic needs/desires, the style of photographs we were looking for, special things and people to make sure Jane and Barb captured, etc. And we received everything we asked for and more. Yes, we had some traditional posed shots. But we also had great outdoor shots, spontaneous photos, photos that captured moments, people at the wedding, etc. that we were delighted to see after the wedding. Photographing included the time when the bridal party was getting ready, throughout the mass, after mass, for a couple of hours in Frankenmuth, throughout the dinner and until after the cake was cut.
The Reid sisters truly captured our day and all of the events in a way that we still talk about. Our bridal party, families and friends enjoyed working with Jane and Barb as they treated everyone with respect, were friendly and were very open to ideas and suggestions throughout the nearly 12-hour day. There prices are very reasonable considering all of the time they spent with us and all of the photos we received, the storybook albums and the DVD, not to mention the quality. They certainly beat out the half-dozen other photographers we compared for packages and prices in Saginaw County and metro Detroit.
My husband and I would highly recommend Creative Photos by J Reid. We have even talked about having Jane and Barb take our children's first photos when they come along.
Thanks Cindy. We LOVED the road trip wedding to Saginaw. It was a beautiful day with beautiful people. Everyone was so nice, and made us feel right at home. And I believe that really came across on your wedding photos!
Loved working with Creative Photos by J Reid, both Barb & Jane were very professional, helpful, flexible and fun!
Thank you Anne Marie, we certainly had a blast that done. I think everyone had some much fun, they forgot about the heat!
