Your Gallery Update

Fine Art Destination Wedding Photographer based in Indianapolis, IN

I promise that I am working as quickly and efficiently as I can on your gallery!
As you can see from our shoot schedule below, I have A LOT of images to get through on top of my shoot and travel time!
I truly appreciate your patience during our peak season.

Expected delivery dates can change upon congested shooting/editing times. Once a gallery has been sent, it will be removed from our update list. Our busy season will be April-December for the year of 2018!

Portrait Sessions such as engagements, anniversaries, monumental moments, families, short events and boudoirs are currently averaging 8 weeks (exclusive of out of office dates and times).

Weddings are currently averaging 12 weeks (exclusive of out of office dates and times).
 

It is not uncommon for a gallery to run over this time frame during busy season (April-December). Please prepare for this just in case and understand that we want these galleries finished and delivered as much as you do! If you are in need of an image for Thank You cards, announcements, gifts, etc, we are happy to send you the high resolution copy of preview images you need! We do ask that you refrain from making requests for images not provided in your preview (unless absolutely necessary), as this will delay editing times even further.

Each image in your gallery is unique which is why I edit ALL of the best images individually, by hand. This is a lot more work and a longer process but it is worth it! Last year I hand edited over 35,000 photos...whoa! That amount of images equaled out to over 3,000 hours of editing time in 2017! That doesn't include shooting time, travel time, sifting through all of the images from the shoot/wedding to decide which are the best, importing time per chip, exporting time of all the edited images and the time it takes to upload to the online gallery. A single image can take up to 5 minutes to edit. To select the best images from a single USB chip from a wedding day can take a full 8 hour day. I hope this helps you understand more of the behind the scenes aspect!
