Welcome to Our New Website

12/24/2009 | General

It’s great to welcome you to our new, totally redesigned website for our wedding and portrait photography business. Although we are still booking a heavy schedule, we felt our old site didn’t convey the style and look of our recent portraits and wedding photographs. As the main wedding season draws to a close, we finally found the time to revamp our online presentation and catch up with the blog.

Despite the prevailing trend among professional photographers to present a main Flash site for the portfolio and another site with a blog, we wanted to keep both under one roof using simple HTML to optimize their accessibility for search engines.

If you’ve been here previously, you’ve probably already noticed the biggest changes: the new site is wider to showcase bigger pictures up to 800 pixels wide (or 830 pixels on the home page), and the page background is almost white to provide a “lighter” feeling. The look is more unified, the navigation is streamlined, and the new blog now uses the popular WordPress engine allowing us to include comments—we’d love to hear from you. Most of our portfolio has been updated with our latest work from 2009.

It’s been an exciting project that has kept us busy for the last five weeks and involved many other talented people. We want to extend our thanks to:

  • Jan Krenek, one of the top Web designers in the Czech Republic whose clients include top Czech companies, artists, and athletes.
  • Petr Streubel, who works with Jan and who completed all of the HTML programming. We have to say his work is amazing! XHTML strict code for the site is perfectly optimized and works flawlessly on a wide range of browsers including the infamous Internet Explorer 6.
  • Iyan Molen, from Indonesia, who created a custom WordPress template to seamlessly integrate our blog and make it a part of the main site.
