    I have been updating my website over the last few weeks. I am tired of looking at it. Any ideas or advise to improve the site or is the site presentable?

    Thank you,
    Amanda

    yeah if you are aiming for weddings i would devote it to weddings. I am not a professional, but I am a consumer and I have hired several photographers so I can just go by what i look for

    I see the same people in all the photos. I would throw in more variety.

    Thanks Craig,
    I just added some new portraits however they are not showing up. It normally takes a few hours for them to show up.

    Any other comments or recommendations? I really appreciates everyones help so far!

    Most definitley use photographs on the home page rather than the "About" description. I would move the "About Photographer" information to another page. You want to catch a person's eye right off and all the text isn't going to do it for you. ;)

    Thanks, so should I move my Wedding Gallery to my "homepage"? Or what would you recommend?

    i might be kind of nitpicky, but personally i would like to see a better "Bollinger's Photography" header at the top. to me, it just looks a little generic. it's the first thing i saw when i opened the page and it didn't make me want to look at your pics. once i looked at your work, i felt different, but upon first opening the page i wasn't immediately drawn in. honestly, i was expecting pretty amateurish work. again, maybe it's a small detail but as someone shopping around for a wedding photographer right now, i know there's a ton to choose from, so this might make me just skip past to the next site.
    hope that helps.:wink:

    That helps tremendously, where could I get a logo made? Are there any special programs
