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. The brief was for a clean and striking website to let her images shine, so Sophie could reach potential customers online. As she moved away from Squarespace, she needed a new website to be designed for regular updating, on an easy-to-use CMS. A responsive website was an essential part of the brief, as analytics showed smaller devices to be of great impact on site traffic.
As the brief specified a clean and striking website, we designed the site very simply so as not to overcomplicate or take away from the main selling point; the photography. The CMS and wireframing were developed for ease of regular updating with large amounts of content, keeping the layout very simple. This reduced the chance of the site breaking from development standards, to ensure Sophie could regularly update the site with her imagery.
For user experience it was important to ensure easy viewing of galleries and key areas for contact. With the number of images to be loaded and a high dependency 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 the 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.”
