My smugmug account expired so I decided to move over to zenfolio. Was wondering if I could get your input before I map it to my domain name. Any thoughts are appreciated, thank you. And to give back I will comment on one of your photos if you like :)

Hey the site is laid out simple and very easy to navigate, The one thing I constantly felt while browsing is the back ground color was kinda dark and dreary. If im looking at you for wedding photography the last thing I wanna feel is dark and dreary. Everything else was simple which i like. Good luck

"portfolio" link isn't working for me, on the front page I would go with a larger photo so that is is equal in height to the MP logo and text on the left side when centered. Site is clean though, good luck with your business.

Enjoyed your site but have to agree with Don about the background color. I think a lighter tone would work better.
You have some good images there.

Not sure where it is on your site but it looks like you have some tracking cookies that are showing up.

Here is the Javascript that grabs the data.

Another point! I am sure you know these days Flash websites are kind of obsolete, sometime slow in response and YES on Mac machines it is hog with CPU and will make it hot from the bottom!!

I think you should think about having it either HTML 5 or jquery to paginated your images. just a thought!!!!

Thanks guys, I lightened the color a bit but still kept it on the dark side. Personal preference I suppose. As far as the slideshow, that was mostly my only option, or at least that I saw, on zenfolio. I am no site designer and I get easily lost in much of the tech speak but I will research it a bit more as I really just wanted a main photo that I could change when I wanted to opposed to a slideshow.

What do you mean by tracking cookies? I will likely look it up but if you wouldn't mind would you elaborate please.
