Hi,
After taking much longer than expected I've finally finished my wedding photography website- http://patrickdinneen.ie/

I still have a few bits to tweek, some photos to add to some of the weddings & rearrange them but for the most it's finished.

If you have a few minutes please have a look & I'd be delighted with feedback- overall thought, what you like & don't like & constructive criticism.

Thanks in advance,
Pa

Hi,

Front page looks very professional. I'd feel comfortable with the photographer based on that.

Comment re Gallery page, that image behind Take a moment to browse my gallery seems lower resolution and you've cut the eyes off, so it seems a bit weird.

The Weddings Page background image also seems a bit too lower res for the size I'm seeing it on a PC, but maybe fine for mobile.
Having white text on a white sky background makes it a bit hard to see.

Likewise on the let's talk page, low quality image.

None of this is major, and I do understand the conflict between high quality images and image size for fast loading, especially on a mobile data plan.

Hope this feedback can help.

I have just viewed this on an iPad and the quality looks fine on that. It looks excellent and conveys nicely your approach, good luck.

Hi,
Thanks for that. I'm aware of the low res issues- need to upload higher, that should sort it out.
The white text on white background is an issue- I either need to change the text colour (but then it's not consistent on every page header image. Not sure if I need to keep it consistent or if I'm over thinking it).

I should get around to those changes this weekend.
Thanks,
Pa.
Cheers,
Pa

I just checked and the cropping is different (better) on a mobile browser.

Id keep text colour consistent and consider a different background image than the bright sky/water one.

Its looking really good though. Above is intended as constructive criticism.

The View more Photos button on the home page is throwing up a 404 for me.

Hi.
I'll have to find different images for the header images.

"Above is intended as constructive criticism"- thanks; I know. I won't take any criticism personally; the more feedback the better. After spending so long creating & tweaking my site I have blinders on.
Cheers,
