Subtle Presence

Custom Memories

Family is about you, your partner, and your loved ones. The mark of a fantastic Calgary family photographer is that you will hardly notice my presence. A big part of this is that at OKES Portraits, Geoff takes the time to learn what means the world to you by not sending a huge amount of online forms, but it'll be through a series of phone calls where I learn all of those details which equate to your family photographed in whatever form your family life resulting in a movie or photograph that encompasses your family realness, beauty, and love.

Every family is unique, just like every couple is unique. Everyone wants to remember their family photoshoot in their own way. That's why I offer a full range of unique and custom-made products for you to treasure for years to come. From Wall Art, Luxury Portrait Boxes, custom-designed heirloom Albums, and the family movie experience there is something for everyone with my professional product line. I will handle everything, from design to printing, all done exactly to your specifications. When it comes to your family portrait photos, having me as your Calgary family photographer means you can love and connect with those you who mean the world around you.

my client's


Getting our photos and family video done by Geoff at OKES Portraits was one of the best decisions we ever made. Our experience was more than we could have hoped for. EVERY step of the way was made simple from the initial consult to the phone calls before our appointment (so Geoff could really understand what we wanted) to the viewing of the movie and the selection of our new family photos. Within minutes our normally shy girls (ages 5 and 7) were smiling, laughing, playing and most of all just themselves in front of the camera. The smiles, looks and feeling he was able to draw out and capture are fantastic. Now we have great artwork pieces for our home and a family movie that we are so grateful for. Each time I watch the movie I notice a small detail I had never seen before. We would highly recommend OKES to anyone who is looking to capture the moments in their lives they don’t want to forget. Thank you Geoff!

Candace & Tyler

We are absolutely in love with our photographs!!! We have many amazing natural shots that show so much love. The entire experience was super fun and relaxed.

Geoff’s passion for what he does and the ability he has to capture not just a “picture” but emotion, love and memories that we will cherish forever is incredible.

He cares so much, and it comes through in every photo he takes.

Thank you, Geoff!

The Krause Family

What sets Geoff apart is how he takes the time to know his clients and what is most important to them. Through conversations with my husband and me, Geoff learned details and nuances about our relationship with each other as well as our children. I believe that the understanding he developed about who we are greatly informed our photography session. He was able to capture moments and feelings that we didn’t know were visible ourselves. This is in stark contrast to the alternative experience of being lined up, posed and photographed in an artificial manner.

We came to realize that the images we choose to display in our home send significant messages, most importantly to ourselves. Our children can see themselves every day the way they are – as part of a loving family, each unique and treasured. Thanks, Geoff!

The Johnson Family

Geoff is amazing!!! He photographed us at Moraine Lake, and I am extremely pleased with the results! My fiance and I are not used to being in front of the camera but Geoff has incredible patience and great direction, putting us at ease and capturing our love and moment. He really takes the time to get to know us and utilize this information to bring out our personality and emotions in the shoot. I can definitely appreciate his attention to detail and all the hard work he puts into his photos. Absolutely solid photographer and would love to keep him mind for future collaborations! 🙂

Michelle & Jon

Geoff was patient and his direction made being in front of the camera a comfortable experience.

I highly recommend him, he is extremely talented!!

The Roth Family

Geoff was absolutely incredible from start to finish. He was a dream come true to find and I can not say enough wonderful things about him and his photography. He will make you feel so comfortable behind the camera so you’ll get photos that truly look and feel like you and your partner are the only people there.

Our photos turned out so amazingly beautiful we will cherish them for the rest of our lives.

Look no further, Geoff is simply the best there is.

Stunning work, thanks a million Geoff!!!

Emily & Alec

Geoff was absolutely amazing to work with and I would highly recommend him to anyone!!

He spends the time to get to know your family and whats important to you before the shoot to ensure the photos he takes is what the client is looking for.

Amazing quality work. He is also very patient with kids and super fun to work with.

I will hand down hire Geoff again for my family photos 🙂
