What clients are saying about Geoff Martin Photography
"We hired Geoff initially to take portrait shots for an upcoming publicity event/write up for my business. He amazed me with his creativity, attention to detail and willingness to spend the time to get the 'best shot'. The results were unique, and I was thrilled.
My husband then hired Geoff for his portrait shots for his business. Again, the results were wonderful and very unique. Geoff suggested taking the shots outside, and they worked out perfectly. My husband was really happy with them.
I also hired Geoff to take interior shots of a recently finished interior project. Geoff was careful to capture creative images by playing with lighting and perspective. He also suggested detailed shots which have been great additions to my portfolio.
Since then, we've hired Geoff to be onsite during professional events to capture the experience for publicity. We've also hired Geoff to take portrait shots of our children. My youngest was really grumpy the day of the most recent shoot, and my oldest was full of extra energy! Geoff was amazing working with them. He showed patience, humor and was extremely professional. The images are fantastic. He managed to create some wonderful memories and capture their personalities.
Geoff has brought a creative eye and passion to every shoot that we've worked on with him. I am constantly amazed by his unique ability to capture personalities, moments and spaces in the best possible light.
We highly recommend Geoff Martin Photography and will continue to hire Geoff for our personal and professional needs."

"Geoff is a great photographer who makes people feel at ease and have fun. We've had several family sessions with him, including our toddler, and he handled them all wonderfully. The time just flew by and even my very reluctant to be photographed husband enjoyed the shoots. And the pictures came out great. Hardest part was choosing between so many amazing shots! Would highly recommend Geoff!"
Arielle - Lafayette, CO
"I've just had my maternity portrait session with Geoff yesterday and I was blown away by how extraordinary the photos turned out. Geoff is extremely talented, creative, patient, flexible, and passionate about the work he does. He is highly skilled and versatile, able to create amazing results in a variety of settings and backgrounds, and to capture a wide range of emotions through his lens.
Not only are my photos incredible, but I also had a lot of fun during the shoot. Geoff will discuss your ideas with you and incorporate them; he will work with you to make you feel at ease and find the poses that make you look and feel your best (trust me, I did this with an 8-month belly!) To echo another reviewer here, Geoff indeed uses his heart to bring out the best in his models, and it immediately shows up in the photos and makes them shine. I could not recommend him more."
Alina - Chicago, IL
"Geoff is incredibly good at portrait. I have him taken photographs several times. Despite the high quality of the pictures, he is particularly good at exploring the special part of his clients and make them feel comfortable. I am not a very expressive person and usually got nervous in front of a photographer. But I didn't have that problem with Geoff at all. He was so good at making me relaxed and communicating with me about what ideas I wanted to convey in the pictures. He was not like those photographers who always tried to impose their ideas on clients and took photographing as a mass production. For Geoff, I can tell he used his heart to create every piece of his photos. He is a real photographer!
I've never had such a great photo shooting experience. I would definitely come here again. I only did some personal style portraits, I heard he is also very good at taking family photos."
Jiyin - Evanston, IL
"Geoff is great to work with. I had to have a portrait taken for business and dreaded having to go. My daughter suggested Geoff as she was familiar with his work. The experience was not at all what I expected, Geoff sets a very relaxed atmosphere. You forget the camera and as a result your photos have a natural expression that flatters without looking staged. I was so pleased I had a hard time selecting. Geoff really helps with the selection process, giving thoughtful feedback on what he sees in the variety of shots he takes. Also check out Geoff's incredible photos of Chicago and local landmarks, beautiful work. I am planning to return for a family portrait, I know I will not be disappointed. Geoff is a great photographer!"
Kathy - Wilmette, IL
"Our family had Geoff take photos of us on thanksgiving and he has a nice studio and he took a lot of excellent pictures. He was very professional throughout but also patient and understanding during the session. We now have some very nice photos to remember this holiday and use for Holiday cards and gifts. We highly recommend Geoff Martin Photography."
Dave - Wilmette, IL
"Geoff is an extremely talented, very professional, and well rounded photographer. He delivered shots that were gorgeous and exceeded our expectations all around. Geoff is truly a gifted photographer - so easy to work with. A real pleasure, I highly recommend!"
Amy - Chicago, IL
"Geoff recently did a family portrait shoot of my husband, our 1 year old daughter, and I. My husband is camera shy to say the least and the whole way there was telling me he did NOT want to be photographed and would only allow 1 picture to be taken. Needless to say, we got there and he was immediately at ease, relaxed and ended up being in many photos and having a lot of fun. Geoff is a great people person and is not only talented in the images he captures but in the way he makes people feel at home, comfortable in front of the camera and willing to be themselves. The photographs he took of us are the best we have as a family so far and we hope to have him take more of us as our family grows!"
Arielle Nobile - Wilmette, IL
"My son and I were very comfortable taking pictures with Geoff. He was flexible and approachable about different ideas for getting the best pics. He was understanding of the difficulties that working with a child presented and was patient and easy going about it. Geoff has great artistic ability and knows great places in the area to take beautiful, scenic pictures."
Marisa - Wilmette, IL
"I hired Geoff to do some portraits of my three year old. Not only were the pictures incredible, but my son had so much fun he asks for Geoff all of the time. To me this says a lot about Geoff's ability to make his clients feel at ease. We will absolutely be using Geoff again in the near future for our holiday pictures!"
