Hello, my name is Summer Galyan and I believe love is love.

I am a full time photographer that specializes in wedding and family photography. I am currently serving the Indianapolis and surrounding areas.  I have an adorable, crazy 6 year old son and a supportive, amazing husband that is also my best friend. I enjoy pizza, music, singing, pizza, painting, reading, pizza, camping, scary movies, beers that are insanely hoppy, and pretty much every animal on the planet. I'm outspoken and quite frankly I think I'm hilarious :) Also, I'm picky. I want that WOW photo at every wedding and I wont stop until I get it.



While I have an appreciation for timeless traditional photos,   I absolutely love to take a modern approach to my photos making them more fun, and unique. I like capturing realistic, candid moments as well as brilliantly posed pictures. I'm obsessed with natural light photography, but I also know my way around lots of different lighting equipment. I am team Nikon and love my Mac!


I attended the Herron School of Art studying visual communications and film photography. It was there, while spending countless hours in a dark room, that I was consumed with a passion for photography. I spent a few years fine-tuning my art as a hobbyist, eventually making the switch to digital photography. As my hobby evolved, I was fortunate enough to begin pursuing photography professionally. Approximately 10 years ago I created Summerly Photography and have been averaging approximately 20 weddings a year with countless family sessions.
