The most amazing wedding photographer we have yet to meet.
Sophie of SMP Weddings is a wonderful reportage photographer whose images captivated all of us. She was looking for a new clean and striking website to let her images shine. As she was currently using Square Space, we were tasked with a new design to be developed on an easy-to-use CMS which required regular content updates.
Due to the nature of the business and our need to really let the images shine, less was more. We kept the site design very simple so as not to over complicate, taking inspiration from the new branding we were given to make the images the main event of the site. We ensured to choose the best CMS for ease of regular updating with large amounts of content. In wire framing, we chose to keep the layout very simple for areas which would be updated often, meaning that we reduced the chance of the site breaking from development standards when updated by the client.
Design & UX
We use a minimal, clean design for the site whilst ensuring that we were using the right technology to ensure easy viewing of galleries and key areas for contact. With the number of images to be loaded and a high dependant on smaller devise users, we designed the UX with mobile and tablet strongly in mind, using simple fonts and colours throughout to not detract from the images. Throughout development of the site, we ensured that the client’s ability to understand and edit the site was met, thus helping lead us in how we developed the site for the end result.
“We've had an absolutely FANTASTIC response to the website, it's intuitive, clean, and really beautiful. We're extremely happy with it, thank you so much, you guys totally nailed the brief.”
