What my clients Say Testimonials


Client reviewsI know some very nice people...

After 16 years of business I’ve learned I’ve learned a lot from people. Most of us just hope we don’t look like a total moron in front of the camera. There’s a reason I prefer to be behind the camera. But that’s my hangup. I’ll figure things out someday. 

YOU on the other hand are much more attractive than you think. Really! But I would like the opportunity to to prove it.  You don’t have to trust my friends listed below. As long as you trust me. I’ll do my best to make getting your portait taken easy and effortless. I know how akward you feel. But we’ll  find a way to make it work. I promise.


My goal with every photo or video shoot is to create a great experience. I love learning about people, their stories and what makes them who they are. I’ve heard it said that we learn more from the journey than we do the destination. I believe that’s true. So, I don’t just want to take your picture. I want to create an experience that we’ll both remember.

I’ve worked with Tom many times over the years, but recently needed an interview and some b roll with a Minneapolis educator and ministry leader for a project for United Methodist Communications. Tom made it easy and the footage looks great. Next time I need video or photos with someone in the Twin Cities, I’ll call on Tom! - 5 Stars!

Tom read my description of the video project and interpreted it very accurately. He exhibited great follow-up. While the project didn't get started because the need for it vanished, I picked up the sense that Tom would make it easy to work with him.

I love my professional head shots taken by Tom Archibald! I had a variety of photos to choose from! The photo session was a lot of fun with customizing poses and backdrops for what I needed the head shots for. Tom is a professional and exciting photographer to work with!

Working with Archibald Studios Photography was a great experience. I'd never needed professional headshots before, so I didn't even know what to ask for. Tom made great recommendations and really took the time to work out the best lighting and poses. He helped me relax so my photos are natural - not artificially posed at all. I highly recommend him for any photography needs you have.

I would recommend Tom to everyone. He is a great photographer, has excellent prices…all up front, no extra costs along the way and is very professional. He has a flexible schedule and really tries to work around when you can meet. HIGHLY RECOMMEND TOM!

Archibald Studios Photography & Design did a fantastic job taking these not-so-winter-wonderland photos for us. We were long overdue for family pictures!

I am genuinely impressed in Tom’s portrait work. He is able to get deeper into the subjects personalities and bring out that extra quality that is hard for most people to see. He seems to have a good sense of color and design – and a good use of space. Overall, I am truly impressed. I would easily recommend him to anyone.
