The quick review:
- pages load fast - good
- no unwanted music - good
- info well-presented and navigation easy - good
- open the SM gallery in a new window. If people link there, click five pictures, they have to click BACK on the browser six times to return to your site.
- I fully agree images look better on black backgrounds. But at least to me, a wedding is a "white thing" it's a "clean thing" it's a "bright and happy thing". A white background would produce a cleaner look, and typographically present some nice open white space to the viewer's eye and mind.

Too few images and far too "wordy".
As my wife tells me, take your thoughts. Write them down. Figure out a way to take 2/3s of them out. She has a degree in English and writing.

It looks like a spam site to me. Looks like you just threw in all of your keywords just because. If you're going to use your keywords, make a sentence of them, not a string of pointless words.

I'm in the middle of redesigning my site. Here's a few things:
Look at other photographers sites and see what is working.
Text on your site should have a point other than trying to get a higher ranking on search engines. That's what your home page looks like.
Larger images and fewer words. You are selling pictures, not a novel.
I don't want to sound harsh or overly critical but, you have some nice stuff on your site-use them.
