Emma Stoner knew exactly what she wanted when she first got in touch with us. Yes, she wanted a website refresh, but she wanted to make sure that it reflected who she was and what she did. As a Devon wedding photographer, Emma Stoner’s pictures are richly infused with nature, the outdoors, the wild and her love for them all. Emma wanted a new website that reflected and reinforced this.
Working alongside Emma Stoner Photography to understand her design inspirations, we were soon able to develop a site that complimented and corresponded with Emma’s brand and vision. Strong colours, new fonts and with a sympathy of design to harness the vibrancy of her images, we were able to lay the foundations of a strong and effective site.
As with so many other businesses, SEO is increasingly crucial and Emma’s was no different. She had already established a strong online presence and wanted to ensure that as well as protecting gains already made, she would be in a position to advance this further. This is something we were able to achieve and ensure.
In fact, the site is now scoring very highly for both performance and SEO, without compromising on image quality. This is even more vital for a photography portfolio website where performance can sometimes suffer due to image size. Emma has always been a frequent blogger and SEO has always been of high importance to her. We transferred all of Emma’s old blogs, together with their metadata and then folded this into the new site, knowing we had built it from the ground up with SEO in mind.
Emma’s new website was built on WordPress. This provided Emma with a familiar and user-friendly content management system, whilst also providing an effective platform that allowed her to continue with strong SEO post development. A fully bespoke site, utilising a user friendly platform, is proving exceptionally popular because of the numerous advantages it offers.
We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Emma Stoner. We know that her site is an investment in her business and given the quality of her photographs, we hope that the new site will help more and more new clients see what quality Emma has to offer.
