We're Tim and Caitlin. We're big into love and all of its incredible forms.
When I met Tim, I was still figuring out who I wanted to be. He was a shy, indie music loving editor with a serious photography habit. There's nothing more attractive to an artist than someone who is passionate about their craft. I fell in love, hard.
Through the years I watched him grow as a photographer, and found myself more and more attracted to the medium. It wasn't long before I ditched my charcoal and paints altogether for my own Canon 5d mark ii. I can't say that I fell in love with photography in the same way I fell in love with Tim, but I can say that it plays almost as big of a role in my life.
Together we've been able to create lasting relationships with our clients and images we can really be proud of. Perfecting the craft never gets old, tired or boring. There's always something new to discover.
In many ways, photography is at the center of our love story. Looking back we have made so many incredible memories together. It's been our touchstone and happy place.
Working with couples, really connecting with them in such an artistic way, is the most rewarding thing we can do. Our goal is not just to make great photos and tell stories, it's to really get to know people and what makes the love they share so special. No two couples are ever alike; they each have something unique between them. We want to capture that.
Things you might wanna know about us:
1) Tim is a huge board game nerd, and I play with him when he needs cheering up.
2) We LOVE adventures. We've been known to take clients to some pretty random but beautiful places. We're always looking for clients who want to road trip with us.
3) We live on 5 acres in Alfalfa (8 miles east of Bend) where we dream of growing all of our own food someday.
4) Tim and I met at a chimpanzee sanctuary in 2008 - yep - cleaning up poo together.
5) We've been known to keep our clients as friends, because connection is what it's all about.

The Perfect Team!
We’ve been working with Caitlin and Tim for our wedding next July! From the moment we met them we knew they were the team for us! So far we’ve taken our engagement photos and we couldn’t be more pleased with how our photos turned out and the creativity they infused while we took the photos! We can’t wait for our wedding and what they will capture and how much fun we’re going to have along the way! Couldn’t recommend them more!!!
EDIT: Tim & Caitlin shot our small, intimate wedding this summer and we couldn't be more thrilled with our photos. They made us feel relaxed and honestly, with all the stress of a wedding day, they made sure we were having fun. They are simply wonderful and I can't wait to work with them in the future.Sent on 08/01/2019

Hire Gallivan Photo!
Gallivan Photo crushed our wedding day photography! I have work experience in both the photography and weddings industries, so I knew that a great photographer was the first thing to lock down once our venue was chosen. Photos are the most tangible 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 on a perfect wedding day, and we will treasure these photographs the rest of our lives. THANK YOU!!Sent on 02/13/2020

We heart them!
I almost wish we could get married again, just so we could hire Tim and Caitlin all over again. They are not only quality artists, but stellar, stellar humans who you will feel so comfortable with. We were our real selves with Tim and Caitlin, and we laughed so hard, we cried and we felt all the feels. Having them as part of our wedding story was really, really great.Sent on 07/18/2019
Gallivan Photo Price Rates
Caitlin & Tim are a creative force. I have worked with them on a number of weddings and styled shoots. Plus I have hired them to photograph me and my team for professional photos and capture my young family for family portraiture. They are hands down two of my favorite photographers working here in Bend. They know how to disappear into the background to capture the candid shots, and how to authoritatively direct large group photos. They are also super adventurous and are up for going to any length to get the perfect shot. Love these two sooo much and HIGHLY RECOMMEND their work.
Tim & Caitlin are absolutely great at what they do. I had the chance to second shoot for Tim & his professionalism working with the clients & me was wonderful. As a wedding photographer myself, I love when other pros come together to collaborate & work together, rather than view each other as competition. Tim Gallivan Photography is a great part of our local Bend community and I'm proud to know them.
