What causes the status to go up and exceed the normal 1 month turn around time?

Well being a small business and having a select team working on the post production it will sometimes increase our turn around time. We do not outsource to anyone but in house editing. 

I tend to only do 5-6 weddings per month, which adds about 40 hours of work per wedding. The average person  4- 40-50 hour work weeks where we usually put in 65-70hrs/wk

During the work week each wedding we do also has a GTKY engagement session about 3-5 per week.

Assistant time off and vacations will have a small effect on the return, since they work with me and reserve themselves out year(s) in advance to assist, vacations sometimes come into the post production side of the process.

Album design and selection takes approximately 10 hours to complete the album design for your album
