The website looks good and is pretty responsive when I'm clicking around. It should serve you well.

Nothing works on it. Small thumbnails...can't click them to enlarge. Links to galleries do nothing. Contact page is empty....

It's nice, your pictures are nice. The only thing I'd say is it's slow loading (slower than other sites I've visited) so don't believe my internet is the issue, though I wont say for sure.

I had the same experience. I clicked on thumbnails and it took forever to load. Are you uploading full-res photos for display? If so, upload smaller files, so they load quicker. The gallery links didn't work for me either.

I Tried from my iPhone. Wasn't responsive at all. Plus the thumbnails are small. I'd reconsider that layout.

I personally don't like small thumbnails, and maybe renaming the FACES category. I expected humans, and maybe that's my fault, but just my opinion.

I wonder why? It loaded fast for me, & the thumbs produced a larger image.
Personally, I think that you need better images in "Weddings".

1. pages, images load fine for me
2. odd front page with one single left aligned image--also, why that image ? and why so small ? I didn't feel compelled to explore further (though did).
3. also about front page: where are you from ? big oversight.
4. Search Engine Optimization: title tag and meta description do nothing to get you found, clicked on via google.
5. You need major help choosing wedding images for your portfolio. Some of your choices are very odd and are more likely to turn off clients than have them want to hire you. Use this forum to get help narrowing down your best work.
6. Gradient of background (getting darker in wedges) gives off low-quality impression to me.

also--what's up with the gallery called 'faces' that has a bunch of zoo shots ? Very strange.

Edit: sorry--I said 'very strange' and 'very odd' in my critique, not only because that was my natural response, but because if you're looking to use your site professionally (for booking weddings, e.g.), cues that add up to someone feeling that something is a little off (even if they can't put their finger on it) can definitely hurt you.

People have answered the detailed stuff enough for me to maybe draw on the higher level strategic stuff.

What is the page for? Is it just a personal page to dump your photos, or are you trying to establish some kind of business? I can't see any (and it may well be because there isn't meant to be!) purpose to the page. Why would I click 'Contact'... I don't even know what it is you do aside from take the occasional photo.

If it is just a personal page to show images, why not just use flickr et al?
