Very nice, simple and elegant. Why the clients' galleries are there, if none can see them? I can't get that.


I love Light as I love Sound.
I'm a professional musician who can't stop doing photos all the time. :oops:

Too large menu font. Menu items not spaced out well.

Page backgrounds are very distracting while trying to read.

so the client(s) can view the photo's themselves not everyone likes there images posted onto the internet for everyone to see, alot of wedding/event photographers do this, and its a nice touch imo.

Reduced the menu font size, still working on the spacing, and changed the background on the page with text.

Thank you everyone for the feedback.

Appreciate it.

Not a fan of the main font, otherwise it's pretty good.

I have 2 galleries for weddings, a viewing gallery and a sale gallery. Anyone can view the photos but only family & friends can make purchases as they need the password from the B&G.

1998 called and it wants its website back.

It seriously looks very old and outdated.

Thanks everyone, any ideas to make it more updated? Just figuring out all the coding to customize the website.

If you want my honest opinion......

For me it looks just super unprofessional, something straight out of freewebs.
Nothing wrong with Papyrus though.
It's also way too dark, is your screen calibrated properly?

Overall I like the simple layout of the site but have two dislikes.

1. The phrase "Photo hosting by SmugMug Pro · Contact · Portions © 2011 SmugMug, Inc." is at the bottom of most pages and mixes with other text as the page is scrolled down.

2. I dont care for the gallery thumbnails scrolling all of the time, it distracts me from the main images which do look well done.

Cheers
