    Get rid of the all flash interphase, it doesnt look good, runs slow, and is very stupid. All flash websites are really annoying.... :meh:

    Well to start with, it wouldn't work in my browser (Firefox 64bit, no flash support) so I couldn't see it. Then I thought, well, if he wants to exclude several million potential customers and hurt his SEO chances by using flash, so be it, and I opened it in another browser....

    Overall the site design is nice and clean, I like that. Your keywords are too generic. Your meta description has misspellings in it and could use a little rework. I am not sure I like the dotted lines too much, really makes me want to grab scissors and cut apart the screen, heh. The converted B&W images really don't do much for me.

    Don't use the "Coming Soon" sign for the wedding gallery. Just leave it off until you get that page done.

    Good navigation, though. I easily found the 2 things customers want to know: are your photos any good, and how much do you charge!

    I couldn't access the page at all--the loading line was moving, but never moved beyond that.

    I'm using Chrome.

    Good luck,

    Thanks to all for the compliments & critiques alike.

    Allan: Any suggestions on the keywords and/or revisions of the metadata?

    DuckRabbit: Do you have issues with any other flash sites using Chrome?

    Only thing that I saw was that you are extremely cheap in your pricing. Personally, I like flash.

    I agree w/ Eric that your portrait pricing seems a bit low... especially considering that you offer a $3,900 wedding package.

    One minor gripe... having the tabs (Home, Portfolio, Information, etc.) facing to the left is a bit disconcerting... but that's just a personal preference. My eyes work better with the tabs reading left to right.

    Thanks Jim, I've thought about moving the tabs horizontally before as well.

    I'm working on a new portrait pricing schema...thanks for the input.
