OUR AMPERSAND PHOTO
Jaime Smialek of Our Ampersand Photo is a wedding photographer based in Chattanooga, Tennessee. She specializes in capturing artistic portraits paired with unique storytelling moments to produce natural, emotional wedding photography.
I had the pleasure of helping Jaime redesign her website and blog and optimizing it for performance. With over 6000 high-resolution images, pages were loading slowly, and server resources were being pushed to the limit. We used some special WordPress magic to batch optimize and resize all 6000+ images and keep them looking just as sharp as the originals.
We used a theme called Crowd 2 from Flothemes which provided us with a timeless, simple design and plenty of layout options and galleries. Perfect for a wedding photographer. We focused on presenting the work clearly and creating effective calls to action to guide visitors throughout the site.
