I couldn't have asked for a better photographer! Kimia is very professional yet she feels like a very good friend! She will always update you through email/text and I always get a reply from her right away! She took my pictures in downtown Chicago and she picked out beautiful locations to take the photos. I had so much fun with her and I would 100% recommend everyone to hire Kimia!! Not only does she focus on detail, she is also very knowledgable about photography and she knows how to get the perfect natural lighting/angle in every picture. She made me feel comfortable and it was easy to express myself! All the pictures turned out amazing and I have never been more satisfied in the results! Her pricing is also very reasonable compared to other photographers in the area who charge almost double! She is perfect for portraits, weddings, family photoshoots, senior portraits, headshots, etc...! Her work is absolutely amazing and I will definitely be working with her again in the future! Thank you Kimia for a wonderful experience!

David is an amazing photographer! Open communication before, during and after the shoot. He really listened to what I wanted! Very professional with the latest technology and state of the art studio! I got to view my shots as the shoot was happening to make sure everything was looking how I had wanted! Highly recommend him for any headshot/model shots needed!

I used Sally to get new actor headshots. What I really liked is that she gave her opinion based on her experience of what casting agents would want, rather than just telling me what I wanted to hear. i appreciated that she gave me some good advice as a person who has worked with lots of actors and was honest about what would work best. She also made me feel really comfortable during the shoot. She was great and I am very happy with the results.

I needed a professional headshot photo in a short timeframe. Since I never had professional photos done before and had no idea how to find a good professional in order to help me out, I was initially relatively intimidated by the process. Looking up the websites from several photographers, most were only advertising wedding and recreational photography services. Robert put me at ease from the very beginning, showing me some sample headshots he took and explaining me the whole process as well as what I could expect. During all of my interactions with Robert, he has been very professional. Also, it is obvious that he is passionate by what he is doing. He overall did exceed my original expectations, delivering some excellent headshots in a very short timeframe!

Luz was great! My husband and I did photos celebrating our first year anniversary/Christmas. She kept great communication with me up until the shoot. She worked with me and was always flexible. Its always nerve-wracking meeting someone you've never met in person or never worked with before, but all our nerves melted away when we met her. She has a warm personality that is inviting and makes you feel very comfortable. She knows how to pose you and has a good eye for spots in your location. She has a great price, and she doesn't water mark your photos like most other photographers in Chicago. I certainly recommend her for anyone considering her as a photographer, and I will definitely use her again for any future photos I need! Thanks Luz!

Lane took some excellent photos of me when I needed a headshot for my business cards. They turned out to be some of the best pictures I've ever had taken, so much so it was hard to choose which one I would use. He has a very relaxed style and a great eye for detail. Always pleasant, comfortable, and professional to work with, I highly recommend him!

Konrad really did an absolutely amazing job! My fiancee and I are so thrilled with how the pictures turned out and so happy that he was able to capture the moment. He was extremely accommodating as I proposed at a restaurant and he offered to meet there the day beforehand to pick out exactly the right table to sit at for the perfect shot. I would strongly recommend Konrad to anyone else looking for a photographer, engagement photos or not!

Hayden is so much fun to work with! I've done a few shoots with him, and each time he has helped me to feel comfortable in front of the camera (not an easy thing to do!). I've been so happy with the portraits he's taken of me, and his other work is amazing. I would highly recommend him to others for professional headshots, lifestyle/fun pics, and events!

My company, ICS, hired Photos by Griffin to do headshots for our office. Taylor arrived early to set up his equipment, allowing him to start taking pictures at the exact time we scheduled. He was quick but thorough with each employee. He took the time to show everyone their pictures and ask which ones they liked best, re-shooting if they didn't like the way they looked. The thing we most appreciated about Taylor is that he was great at making us feel comfortable. Posing for pictures can be incredibly awkward and Taylor made it easy with his friendly personality and charm. It is evident in our photos that he captured genuine smiles from all of us rather than the stuffy, posed photos you might see in some corporate headshots. We took our photos yesterday afternoon and Taylor had them updated and sent over in just a few hours. The quick turnaround time was much appreciated. Overall, Taylor is a consummate professional and we could not be more pleased with our results. We will absolutely be using him in the future for headshots and corporate events. As a staffing firm, our corporate slogan is "We Know The Right People" - I can say with confidence that Taylor is one of them. I highly recommend Photos by Griffin and look forward to working with Taylor again soon.

I needed a professional headshot photo for my voiceover business website, and Sergei came through. He was able to provide a variety of "looks" that captured both the sass and the drama of my personality. What I appreciated most was that he was both personable and professional, worked around my busy schedule to schedule studio time, and was very quick to respond throughout the entire process, from the quote all the way to delivery of the photos. I am very happy with the results as I have so many different photos to choose from, and would recommend him to anyone looking for a really good headshot.

Ryan did professional headshots for me and they turned out great!!! I wanted a daylight portrait with a simple background and thats exactly what he gave me. The quality of the digital images were perfect for both print and web. He was very easy going and professional! After a while I barely noticed him shooting. Before I knew it we were done. He quickly reviewed some images me on the spot. Later that same evening I was able to view an online gallery and download images. Very reasonable price for quality!

Nick is phenomoninal! He is a natural artist when it comes to photography. He genuinely cares about the work he does and the clientele he works with. I am not a photogenic person, but he made me feel very comfortable and the experience for taking my professional headshot less anxious. He knows his stuff about the perfect lighting, angles, and how he communicates to get the perfect shot that highlights your best features!!! What I love the most is that he takes a ton of shots so you can choose from a variety rather than only having 5-10 available. It was hard for me to choose the right one haha. I definitely will be back for the great service!
