    I want to set up a website for clients to order wedding pictures online from me vs. relaying the order via the bride. Does anyone have advice on how to do this? Do most people build and maintain their own sites or are there servies out there where you can have them do it for you?

    I would love to make it as simple as possible for myself to maintain and for the bride and guests to order off of.

    Thank you!

    There are broadly two types of online ordering systems/

    1. You pay a one-time installation fee. They don't take percentages from your sales. The set up fee is high but is good for heavy volume shooters.
    Quick examples that comes to my mind:
    PickPic.com
    RedCart.com

    2. They take a percentage of your print orders.
    Collages.net
    PhotoReflect.com
    ExposureManager
    etc.

    It's wonderful, and a great source of lots of extra cha ching.

    I use Labprints and they even have great software to help you organize photos, order using a Lab that participates with them. They even have an awesome program for album design and then you can post online so brides can even comment on the pages... Check it out... So far, I love them! www.labprints.com
