Wedding Packages start at $2000 - All packages include 7 hours of shooting during the wedding and reception, online gallery of images, high resolution disk of images and a complimentary engagement session. I also offer a variety of custom products including but not limited to coffee table books, albums, custom designed cards and wall art.

You will not regret the investment that you'll make when hiring an experieced professional to photograph the most significant day of your life. I've been in business for 12.5 years and have photographed over 200 weddings; I still love every minute of it.

I have a beautiful studio located in downtown Rockford. I'd love to meet with you there to share some information and hear about the plans you are making for your big day.

P.S. You are going to love being married! Read less

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Photojournalism, Portraiture, Traditional / Posed
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Thank You Cards
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Yes although I would definitely describe my style as clean and vibrant, almost organic. (No artificial photoshopped ingredients).
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Yes, I am well experienced in working in all different types of lighting. I love the look of natural light but hate the look of bags under your eyes so I do use fill light when needed. My style is vibrant and beautiful.
Is your media preference film or digital?
I am 100% digital.
How many photographers do you work with?
I am the only photographer but I do have a wonderful assistant Jessica who works with me. I've been doing this for over 13 years and I do it really well.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes!
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I may book 2 events on a Friday and a Saturday but always keep both events in the same city. I never book two events on the same date.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I have A LOT of friends who are photograhers. In the event of a tragedy in my life I would immediately attempt to find another photographer of equal professional talent to take my place. I've help others out this way and I know that any one of them would be happy to assist me. We all take the wedding business very seriously.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
A large assortment of cameras, lenses, lighting equipment, stands etc. I'm very portable and pack up quick but I usually bring way more than I need. I'd rather have it and not need it than need it and not have ti.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Absolutely.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Full day and then hourly should the event last longer than my contracted time.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
$100 per hour.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I'm with you for 7 hours. I HAVE to take a break. If you provide a meal for me at your reception I am happy to give you an additional hour of coverage at no additional charge. You wont' want your photo taken while you're eating and this gives me the chance to take a quick break but yet still be in the same room with you to keep an eye on the events.
Do you charge for travel?
I do have a travel fee but offer different collection in the event that shooting your wedding involves a flight or two.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
2 weeks. I'm not a procrastinator at all.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Proofs will be featured in an online gallery connected to my website. You will receive a disk of images shortly after the online gallery has been posted.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
Online they are available for 60 days.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
I own the copyright on the images but I do give you permission to reprint as much as you would like. The images may not be used to promote any business other than Terri Gillis Photography.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes.
What kind of albums do you offer?
I offer albums in all different shapes, sizes to accommodate all budgets.
When will the client get the final album?
4 weeks after the design has been approved. Sometimes as soon as 6 weeks after the wedding if the couple is quick to approve their design after it's been given to them.

Terri did a spectacular job on our photos! I love every single picture she took! She was very patient with our bridal party and parents who kept running away when we needed them for pictures! She listened to all of our ideas and spent extra time during the reception taking pictures of Alex and I. Terri is very professional and flexible with your needs. I would definitely recommend Terri Gillis! (:

Where do I even begin?
We have had the pleasure of knowing Terri Gillis and her camera for many years. I like to call her "Our Family Photographer" because so many of us have been photographed by her. She is fantastic to work with, professional, humorous, extremely talented and worth every penny.
My husband and I had the pleasure of having Terri photograph our destination wedding in Hawaii in September 2011. She was up for the challenge of lugging her equipment (and her husband) all the way to Hawaii. We couldn't have been more appreciative or grateful that she was our photographer that day. She was able to capture all of our memories so that we could share them with family and friends back home. We will continue to use her for years to come! Thank you Terri!!

We appreciated Terri's persona about marriage and Christianity, which made her beaming smile even more amazing. Her attitude helped keep the mood light, especially considering that a few picture changes were made on the sight. Moreover, she adapted her style to our personalities, which was great as well. Lastly, she offered a competitive wedding photo package that was extremely affordable.
