INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Proof CD of All Images
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Yes, we offer artistic editing on all of our packages.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
We have the equipment and experience to deal with a variety of lighting situations.
Is your media preference film or digital?
We used film up until 2005 and then switched to 100% digital, which has become our preference
How many photographers do you work with?
two - a husband and wife team
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
We guarantee our presence or your money back! Over the past 17 years we have NEVER missed an event or been late!
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
We only book one event a day. This allows us to focus our energy on ensuring the client's images are well cared for an not rushed. We do, on occasion, shoot more than one wedding in a weekend.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
We know and network with several photographers in the Central, Ohio area should there ever arise a need for a 'backup' photographer we will help you find one that is available.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
We arrive with several high resolution digital camera bodies (4 of them). We also arrive with a large case full of lenses, lighting equipment, backup batteries, plenty of memory cards. We strive to create redundant systems to ensure we can capture the images from your day no matter what!
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes, we have several levels of backups in the event of a failure.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
We charge either hourly or for full day services. The hourly is offered to allow clients the opportunity to save money.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
We are available the entire day. That means we can come early and leave late. You can ask for this even the day of the wedding.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Since we are a 2 photographer team, we do take breaks. Like every other business, we need to rest briefly when things have slowed down. If our services are greater than 6 hours, we do request a vendor meal be provided or that the client discuss meal arrangement beforehand (we can pack our lunch if it saves the client $$$)
Do you charge for travel?
Outside of central, Ohio, we do charge for travel. It is cost plus 10% for out of state and mileage for in-state. If a hotel is required, we request that the client compensate us for the stay... Which if they arrange, it is cost - if we make the arrangements it is cost plus 10%
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
This varies throughout the year. We strive for 30-60 days. We do feel that each client is important, but in order to fairly serve all clients, we do our editing in the order the events occur. We are always looking for ways to improve workflow while maintaining excellent quality. We do put quality over speed of turnaround.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
We do online proofing through our own viewing site. We feel that the commercial options available (i.e. Pictage) are high pressure sales. Our gallery viewer doesn't require the viewing party to submit their email address. This keeps them from receiving constant SPAM and high pressure sales pitches to buy images. We also allow your family and friends to order from our site - which is totally non-pressure.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
Since they are online on our own website, they will be posted indefinitely.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
By Federal Copyright Laws, I do retain the copyrights to the images. We do provide our clients with a limited usage release letter that allows them to share images on Facebook, Twitter, etc. as well as making prints for their personal use or for gifts. The images provided are high resolution images!
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
I do reserve some limited rights to post the images on my website for marketing purposes. I do not sell images of the client's guests, etc. as artwork for someone's wall (other than the client or a family member/friend).
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes - we provide high resolution jpeg files of your edited and retouched image files.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes, through our own viewing gallery.
What kind of albums do you offer?
We offer anything from custom designed coffee table press books, hinged page press books and flush mount albums. There are a variety of custom options available as well.

We are absolutely thrilled with our experience and the final product! Sean was very easy to work with. I sent so many sample pictures that I liked and we talked through what I liked about each one a few days before the wedding so he had an idea of what catches my eye. He made sure he had our schedule for the day so he was prepared for the day. We went with the essential package which worked out well for us. We got plenty of pictures and are very glad we went with two photographers. Sean's wife, Sarah, was so helpful to me in the bridal room, making sure we got all of the pictures I wanted of my dress and accessories as well as making sure I had lipstick on. We had so many pictures, it took awhile to get them. It was well worth the wait. Sean was even nice enough to send us some specific shots ahead of time so we could take advantage of a print offer we had that was expiring before all of the photos were done. The photos are so beautiful! We have received the nicest comments about them. Sean's style is exactly what we were looking for which can be seen in the photos on his website. We are very happy with our decision to hire Sean for our wedding.

5.0/5.0
Sean and Sarah of Photography by Gillilan did an amazing job at our May 27, 2012 wedding. Not only did the husband and wife team shoot using two cameras to capture each moment at different angles, but their calm demeanor and flexibility was just what a bride and groom need on their big day. Sean was creative and was more than happy to follow us to all of the places we wanted pictures taken. He made the bridal party laugh and got some great candids of everyone from the ceremony to the reception. For the amount of money we put into our photo package, we got much more than we paid for: high quality photographers who have a creative eye for great wedding photos! I would recommend Photography by Gillilan to my friends, family, and any soon-to-be-married couple that want photos that capture each special moment of the biggest day of their lives!
