    I'm working on starting up my business and just got a new website. One thing I'm not so sure about is having a splash page. I currently have one but am not sure I want it. It is easy enough to hide. Let me know what you think. I would appreciate any C&C thanks!

    Nice, clean, and consistent layout If you could start the music at a lower volume it mite be better. That is not my particular style of music but I do like music on a site my self. It would be nice if we knew if it was better for business or not. I just added music to my site so I will find out.

    i think it looks really good, easy to navigate and clean..but i would remove the picture of the 2 girls on your home page....and the shot of the boy laying in the yellow leaves..they are just not up to par.

    I like the webpage. I agree about the pic of the 2 girls, and I am not sure about the music either!

    I continue to be amazed that so few new photographers fail to put their vital information on their web sites! You need to at least have Who you are, What you do, Where you are and How do I contact you. You have forgotten #3 and #4 has to be searched for.

    And, in answer to your question, splash pages are an old fad, and have been proven by marketing pros to actually work against you in the internet jungle.

    Get rid of the music, when researching some people forget to turn down their volume or are listening to their own music. If you really want music and feel it adds ambiance to your site allow for them to manually start it. Site looks good.

    On the pricing page, your first package implied that it applies only to the Temple. DO you mean you only do Mormon or Jewish weddings?

    I think it is beautiful and I like the music. I would remove the picture on the front of the baby's foot. You have so many beautiful photos that I don't think that one does your work justice. I'd put pictures up with more color. Remember if people skip the rest of your flash display they will remember the first image they saw. Make sure it's your best.

    Mormon weddings make up the majority of the weddings that I do and couples often want pictures to be taken only at the temple so this is why I made that package to cater to that need. I'm sure you noticed the other packages that can cater to any couple.
