This is my first creation using one of those cheap templates and I have no prices set. Still getting started in a way but figured what the heck and thank you for doing this.

Please let people know you are available for hire (if you are in fact available to be hired). All I see is a portfolio. Based on that, and presentation, I'd put you at the very bottom of pricing budgets.

Welcome!

Initially your layout looks nice, but I think the overal structure of presentation could be refined a lot. I'm not a fan of your homepage showing the latest blog posts, unless every single one of your latest posts is your VERY BEST work and what you want them to see first. I saw lots of pretty wedding photos in the slides, and then I see baby photos as I scroll down. Simplify and put your best foot forward.

Your about me page makes you sound very generic, like you just picked up a camera a year ago and don't care what you photograph as long as you are being paid to do it. I think making it sound more specialized would be beneficial.

No prices listed, but based on presentation:
-weddings $1200-1800
-portraits - $100-400

Can't say I like the menu text getting HUGE, its distracting and my mouse placement changes...

The contact section text needs some space to breath!

Don't say "no bells or whistles", that diminishes the value of your starting offer. And I don't like "expect to spend" as it implies a lack of value at the top.

$3500-5000

Looking into changing prices for 2013/2014 so we could use a look.

I think the word passion is used a bit too much on the about section.

Weddings - $950-1500
Portraits - $150-250
Headshots - $50 (wow this is CHEAP)

I think you need a serious review of business financials on how this pricing isn't profitable. No offense to you, but this is working for almost less than minimum wage. Hope this helps!

I think your opening image could be stronger...

I don't know if you are limited by your website capabilities, but the pricing page has the text and its large and hard to read a lot of information quickly. It's spread out way too much and I think it should be cleaned up.

Weddings - $?
Portraits - $100-200.

I think some education on what they should expect to purchase/spend would be extremely helpful. All you tell me is a session fee, and how much you'll nickel and dime me on hours if we spend more time than allotted.


Duely noted. A problem in and of itself possibly, but the wedding info and pricing is there, just need to scroll down. That is a problem if for me if that isn't clear to do something as simple as scrolling. Yes, it is a smugmug pro site and it is limited unless you are familiar with coding, which I am not. Thank you for looking. You have given me things to reconsider.

I dig the layout, very nice!

C$2900-5000. Nice range explained.

Give me some numbers about other sessions, I could wrongly infer your are too expensive for portraits based on the "amount of time" I see in your wedding package (ie: I assume its $414 an hour)

The very bottom info bar (with social media links) is partially hidden, regardless of browser size.

Why are pics of the presidential parage on your blog? Doesn't seem like it adds any value to your brand as a wedding/portrait photographer.

$3000-4300.

This isn't based on your work. Also, I just posted my review of your site about 5 posts up

I'm new to wedding photography market.
Thank you ^^


Why do you post an empty guestbook? You also have a login for zenfolio in your menu system.

No pricing indication anywhere, or even "contact me for pricing". So, I'd tell people you are available to photograph their wedding, and to contact them, at minimum.

Weddings - $1500-3000

Spencer,

If your still doing this, then I'd like to get your words of wisdom (there is main website and blog - both have the same info):

www.sfphotography.ca



Weddings - $1500-2200
Newborns/Family - $159-259

I think the site is pretty slow on loading pages, and the logo is very masculine, yet you target a woman (weddings, newborns). And your website vs blog is VERY different in visual styling.

To be completely honest, I don't know how to review a facebook page. But, the first thing I see is that you have a lot of likes, have a lot of posts. I can't read anything about what you do, what you offer, or how much I might spend. I don't see any additional information to tell me that I can hire you.

Also, you live in an area where I have NO idea on what people spend on a wedding, let alone on a photographer. I wish I could help, but there really isn't anything I can add

Very compelling opening presentation, nicely done. You provide me with overwhelming peer/client feedback that you rock.

2000-4000.

I'm curious how many you are booking and what your average is. Feel free to PM if you're willing to share.

Thanks Spencer, I'm still finishing putting the site together, it's from Rawfolio. Do you see the lack of other shoot prices as a deterrent for wedding clients? Honestly with my portrait sessions I adjust pricing based on how much the shoot interests me and how busy I am at any given point in time. If people want me to squeeze them in during my crazy summer months, I charge them more.
