g you feel like you’re just hanging out with friends. We had a blast doing our engagement shoot with them, and when we had to reschedule our wedding because of the pandemic they were very understanding. They worked with us to make sure they could photograph our elopement and our rescheduled wedding. They do such a wonderful job at making everyone comfortable during portraits and blending into the background during important moments. They are also very helpful during the planning process and gave timely responses to all my questions. AND they take gorgeous photos! We are in love with all the photos they’ve taken for us - they will help us relieve this special time in our lives forever. We really wanted to hire photographers who would ensure both a great experience and amazing photos, and that’s exactly what we got with Tim and Caitlin. Our family and wedding party also had nothing but good things to say about them and the photos. I truly can’t recommend them enough

Tim & Caitlin are two of my favorite people. We interviewed 3 wedding photographers in late 2018/ early 2019 for our 2020 wedding. When we met Tim & Caitlin we knew they were the ones. From our amazing engagement photos in 2019 to their flexibi...
lity and professionalism in 2020, they were phenomenal. We aren't big picture takers, but it was very important to me for our photos to feel natural and not overly posed. Caitlin always has the right thing to say to make you laugh and bring out every person's natural glow and beauty. They truly care about their clients and tend to make lifelong friendships with so many of them. Eventually we'll have some kiddos, and like many of their other clients, Tim & Caitlin will be our go-to family photographer as well. They are simply wonderful humans that make the most incredible photos.

Not being local to the area, I was having a tough time choosing the right vendors - until I met Caitlin and Tim! They were very responsive to my questions, and went above and beyond to help me find the right vendors. Not only are they amazing at what they do, but they are well connected in the industry. They knew my venue was a little darker, and were fully prepared with the right gear to capture every moment! They even hiked in the rain with me to get the perfect shot! Talk about full service!
This is the team you want capturing your big day. They are wonderful. You will not regret it!

ible lasting memory of your wedding day, so it's important to pick someone whose style of photography you love, and whose personality works well with yours. We loved Tim and Caitlin's vibe from the first time we chatted (like, let's be friends IRL). They are professional but fun, and when behind the lens they know how to capture a great shot while also making their subjects feel at ease. Throughout the planning process, they were communicative and quick to respond, and Caitlin was a great resource to bounce ideas off of (whether photography related or not).
As bride and groom, the day goes by in a blur, and the only moments we had “alone” together were being captured by Caitlin and Tim. We truly enjoyed having them around all day – they knew when to take charge and when to recede into the shadows. My mom applauded their organization and ability to herd all of our relatives together for formal family photos. Seriously, they helped keep our entire day fun and running smoothly!
Last but not least, the photos speak for themselves. They are beautiful. Caitlin and Tim were wonderful to work with, so fun to hang out with, and we will treasure these photographs the rest of our lives. THANK YOU!!

im and Caitlin are professional and so, so kind. They offered great recommendations for local vendors (we were coming from out of state) and were always willing to help and give advice heading up to the event. During the event they were prompt, on schedule, and clearly experts at what they do. We also received our gallery from the wedding in what must be record time! If you are looking for a photographer, I simply can not recommend Gallivan Photo enough.

ely felt at ease. It was clear they knew what they were doing and that they wanted to create a personalized experience for us. We did look at three or four other photographers but they all seemed a bit cookie cutterish for us and were far more expensive.
On our big day, they were a breath of fresh air. They had a fun and funny dynamic that helped set a relaxed tone that enhanced our day. They were minimally invasive during the more intimate moments.
They provided a sneak peek early on, a gorgeous slide show and then the full gallery before we expected it. The pictures are breathtaking and captured our day so well. We are over the moon and have received many compliments on them. Our only regret is that we didn't book them for longer. We didn't get photos for the latter part of the reception or when we were leaving and wish we would have. (Don't try to save cash when it comes to your photos.)
Absolutely recommend this awesome team!

ok so great even though we felt so awkward having our pictures taken. We LOVED our engagement photos and have received so many compliments on them.
They were great at communicating through the entire planning process and really took the stress out of the photography aspect of our wedding. They were so great during the wedding day too! Our guests said they were everywhere at the reception taking all kinds of pictures and blending in. They made our bridal party photos so easy and were such troopers during our super long family photo shot list. They left us a beautiful box with our names and wedding date engraved and little gifts. The best part was 30 preview photos of our day that we got to look at that night. We are so excited to see the rest of the photos!
They made us look so wonderful!
Tim and Caitlin are so talented and fun to work with! I would recommend them to any couple planning a wedding who is looking for a photographer that does amazing work and they will feel 100% comfortable with.

t ease. They offered direction when needed, but the rest of the time let us do our thing and captured the most genuine special moments. In retrospect, for our wedding, we asked them to capture photos in every light/background and the whole album was INCREDIBLE - we did our first look at Smith Rock and the photos/background were STUNNING. Family photos in 30-degree weather, everyone looked great. Our ceremony was at sunset with the sun setting behind us and they captured the most PERFECT lighting. And of course, the pics captured during reception indoors later were just GORGEOUS. Oh and we did our engagement photos in front of the Portland cityscape on an overcast rainy day and they were so cool! So, Gallivan does it all, and they do it while being the kindest couple of photographers you’ll ever meet.
