Introducing Our Latest Web Design Project: Shelby Waltz Photography Website
Since we specialize in working with photographers, getting a new web design project in this field is always a pleasure. When Shelby Waltz, a wedding photographer came to us, her website was a half-baked WordPress theme losing her business and money, so she needed a quick, professional design to set her business back on the right track. What she ended up with is an elegant, beautiful and compelling portfolio to showcase her best works.
Simplicity At Its Best | Our Latest Web Design Project
Shelby has a well-defined, solid style and a brilliant body of work, so she needed a simple, yet modern portfolio – a creative web design project that would showcase her work in an unobtrusive, clever, and creative way, letting her work take the center stage. The homepage was designed to grab the visitor’s attention at a single glance, show her skills, and provide the visitor with all the essential information and links. While the homepage features a simple navigation bar, the portfolio section is divided into image blocks representing various categories.
With so many wedding photography websites out there, we needed to create a website that accurately conveys the Shelby Waltz brand, yet appeals to her target audience, so we decided to include a lot of white space, accentuated with dark blue, Shelby’s favorite color. Subtle colors of navigation and social buttons, as well as elegant design, provide a stunning contrast to vivid and dynamic photography full of life, creating a unique and effortless browsing experience. Every single element was crafted and tweaked to perfection to offer a seamless and fast navigation, without sacrificing the quality and speed of the website.
Functionality | Our Latest Web Design Project
While creating a website that would portray Shelby’s style and appeal to wedding couples, we wanted to make sure the website offers all the functionality a photographer needs in order to grow business and get new clients. This is why the contact page is a paramount element, offering essential contact details, as well as an intuitive, custom-built contact form to enable visitors to get in touch with Shelby in a smooth, effortless way. Social media being one of the most powerful marketing mediums for small business owners like Shelby, we knew we had to include links to her social media profiles, so we included custom social buttons at the bottom of every page in her favorite color.
