photo by robert ltd.. has been in business over 60 years. Started by Robert Gerrits in Chicago then moved to Arlington Heights. Jim Martin took over the business that has been on Arlington Heights Road 20 years ago. “Providing quality photographic portraiture and wedding photography has always been my goal. My passion is to create images that have an emotional impact an personal attachment to all my clients,”says Jim Martin..
Jim started out as a photojournalist working for the local suburban newspapers covering local events, disasters, sports and human interest pieces. He taught photography at University of Illinois at Chicago and has been a full time wedding and portrait photographer at photo by robert for 30 years.
“Having a loyal portrait clientele that returns year after year makes my job rewarding”. With a fall off of people getting married and not using professional photographers promoted the move to a smaller studio space.
I received a phone call a day after I moved. A portrait client was concerned that my studio was closed down. I have photographed his family for years has portraits hanging over his fireplace and is due for another family portrait soon.
This Arlington Heights full service professional photo studio does Wedding Photography, family portraits, children, pets and digital head shot portraits for the web and professional publications.
I look forward to staying in business in Arlington Heights at my new location at 203 S Arlington Heights Road 60005 for a long time. (Also known as Jim Martin Signature Photography) The studio may not be visible right off the road, but it is well worth looking for behind the PC Rescue and ebay resale shop. www.photobyrobert.comRaves:

We LOVE our pictures!! Thank you so much for taking the time and helping us get a great family photo!
We like them so much that we are thinking of ordering more.
Also, I was wondering if you could do a group with 7 adults and 5 toddlers! I'd love to give my parents a gift certificate to do a family portrait with all of us in it! Any chance we can work out a deal to do the sitting fee and a 8 x 10 like we got?! Would it be indoors or outdoors? I love outdoors if we can make that work. Let me know!
Thanks again for everything!!

Jim Martin, with Photo by Robert Ltd was an exceptional photographer for our wedding. He is charismatic and fun to work with. He is very efficient, and energetic and has an artist's eye for seeing and capturing great beautiful shots. He captured EVERY shot without missing a beat.
The final product that was produced by Photo of Robert Ltd was beyond beautiful. Jim added his personal style and created our gorgeous wedding album. Each page in our book is a collage of pictures (spanning two pages) that tells a different story of our day.
Photo by Robert Ltd, was professional, on time, well priced and easy to work with. I highly recommend using Photo by Robert Ltd to capture any of your life's special moments."

During our search to find a Wedding Photographer for our recent September 2008 wedding - We chose to use Photo By Robert, located in Arlington Heights IL.
We had checked out the packages that a few well-known "chain photography stores" offered and compared them to what Photo By Robert offered. We saw how the "chain stores" treated us more like "just another wedding" whereas Photo By Robert saw us as individuals and as a couple ready to get married.
We picked the plan that worked just right for us and fit the budget that we had chosen to stay within.
Photo By Robert was on-time, courteous, professional all throughout the process and a great pleasure to work with. The outcome of the pictures were better than we could have ever imagined. Our wedding album is something that we will treasure forever - and thanks to Photo By Robert - our Wedding Day will be unforgettable. It tells the story from beginning to end in the most beautiful and creative way possible.
We are extremely happy with the services we received. We will be going back to Photo By Robert for more photo services.
