Client testimonials on their pet portrait session by Amstaphy pet photography.
What clients are saying
“I was nervous about bringing my two minimally trained dogs to a professional photo-shoot, but there was nothing to worry about with Marty. He handled them both so well and got some of the most beautiful pictures that I have ever seen. The whole process of taking the photos, choosing prints, and having Marty install them could not have gone any better!”
"He is truly talented, patient and knows how to capture a cool shot."
“Martin did an amazing job in capturing her true personality in the photos as well as keep her calm and engaged throughout the entire process."
"We had some good laughs, and am happy with how many of the photos came out."
"We loved all of our images as Martin was magically able to bring each one of our fur babies personality to light!"
"He had a wonderful and natural way of working with her and he actually was able to keep her attention long enough to capture some great shots of her!"
"Thankfully Martin is patient and knew how to work with Murphy to gain his attention for some amazing photos that captured my dog's true personality!"
"Admittedly, pet photography is a bit of a luxury indulgence. However, Martin makes sure your money is well spent and you'll not have buyer's remorse."
"He captured Bella’s personality and made the selection process pleasant and smooth. It wasn’t easy because every image was adorable!"
Buffalo Grove, IL
"... were reluctant to take our dog in for the shoot because he has anxiety and aggression problems. Man, we should not have waited. Martin knew how to work with our dog and his photos turned out to be amazing. And that's coming from a person who works in aesthetic and has photography as a hobby."
"It took a ton of patience since Ziggy doesn't exactly hold still. Martin never got flustered and just kept treating until it all paid off. We have several pictures framed now and couldn't be happier."
"I never thought you would get Koko and Sandy to still long enough to get one good picture . . . much less 3!"
"I was initially nervous about doing a photoshoot with my dog because she's super high energy, wary of men, and dog reactive (quite the trifecta!), but Martin immediately set her at ease."
"He also got our dog to do things we didn't think were possible - sitting focused for long periods of time as well as great action shots. His patience and timing were incredible."
San Francisco, CA
"Martin's gift as a photographer is having a clear vision of the shots he wants to get. No standing around debating "how about this? how about that?" He cuts through all of that and provides clear, calm, and detailed direction about the poses he thinks will work best."
Oak Park, IL
"We knew we wanted to photograph Rosko, our smallest member of our family, but we were not exactly sure what we wanted (if that makes any sense). However, Martin helped us figure out exactly what we wanted. He showed us examples and gave us ideas of what the final photograph will look like."
"I was not sure at first if anyone could get any good photos of my Lulu because she would always shy away from my camera every time I would point it at her. So I must admit I was skeptical at first. But I decided to take a chance on my baby’s birthday."
"He captured her personality in pictures that I will treasure for the rest of my life. I had an incredibly difficult time choosing my prints from so many great shots!"
"Martin was extremely patient with our dogs and was able to capture some amazing shots! He edited our photos to perfection."
"Martin's generous work at the dog shelter won me over when I was considering the session as a birthday gift. Martin was so patient with my dog Ripley and he knows how to get great shots.
Our dog Ripley is getting older and the photos were a really nice surprise for my partner with some photos of his canine buddy for his birthday."
"I decided to do a photo session with my dogs, Fudge and Blu, after it dawned on me one day that they were a little slower and their muzzles had turned grey. Long before there were children, we had these two knuckleheads."
"Martin was able to capture our boy in the spirit in which he lived. His demeanor with Samo was kind, professional, and fun. We are forever grateful to have had that experience before Samo's passing."
