Hello, my name is Summer Galyan.

I specialize in wedding and family photography and am currently serving the Indianapolis and surrounding areas. I am a full time photographer as well as a stay at home mom. I have a ridiculously adorable 4 year old and a supportive, amazing husband that is also my best friend. I enjoy music, singing, painting, reading, pizza, camping, beers that are insanely hoppy, and pretty much every animal on the planet.


I have a profound appreciation for timeless traditional photos but I absolutely love to take a modern approach to some of my photos making them more unique. I love capturing realistic, candid moments as well as brilliantly posed pictures. I prefer natural light photography but I am not afraid to use lighting equipment when necessary. I am a Nikon user that loves Apple.


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 9 years ago I created Summerly Photography and have been averaging approximately 30 weddings a year with countless family sessions.
