The blood, sweat and tears of building a wedding photography website

Well, ok, perhaps I’m exaggerating slightly, but it is bloody hard work.

I’ve chosen to build this site myself because (a) it’s cheaper (b) like most good photographers, I’m a control freak.

Yesterday I created password protected galleries for the couples I shoot weddings for.

This is cool because it allows them to tell me which photos they want in their album more quickly than using bits of paper.

The galleries also look really nice and make it easy to show wedding photos to Uncle Bob and Auntie Gladys who emigrated to Australia.

(For anyone who wants to learn about password protectecting webpages I recommend www.zubrag.com)

Today I created the form couples fill in to tell me which photos they want. It’s not perfect, but it’s a start.

And how long have these major achievements taken me? – I calculate I’ve probably worked about 30 hours in the last two days …
