Andrew Olney Wedding Photography Site

Back after the Summer holidays – hoping everyone had a good time and stayed out of trouble!

Here is a website I built recently for a client – Andrew Olney who is a wedding photographer based in London, who also covers Surrey and Kent. His style is very classy, with a beautiful blend of traditional and modern looks to the images and memories he creates.

The brief was simple – basically give him a new site, with a style based on the existing branding he had and with a new gallery that was visually pleasing. I used a jQuery Exposure plugin to present his work with a slideshow option.

Also required was a client area where wedding photos could be uploaded and viewed by the wedding party or friends only. I built this part of the site using a custom WordPress installation and theme, so it also has the benefit of being blog-ready.

The client can edit the main site via ftp and a file editor (having been taught – tech support as part of the package!) and the client area is managed through the WordPress interface.

Here’s the URL to the site: London Wedding Photographer Website.

    We have just discovered wordpress and are looking foward to taking our site designs to the next level.
    We recently had a photographer ask for exactly what you have provided here. I’d love to know more details about your process for providing him with the ability to “edit the main site via ftp and a file editor”

    Very nice work BTW

      Hi Rob
      Thanks for the comments. As the client is a Mac user, he works with a copy of Fetch to access the main website files via ftp. From there he can edit the text content using TextEdit on OS X. He can also upload images (which he does with the gallery) and include file paths. I gave him a styles sheet so he can include styling on elements if he wants to.
      The other option would have been to encourage him to splash out on Contribute and build the site with templates in Dreamweaver, locking off critical areas!

It's good to talk!
