We are so incredibly excited to debut the new framedbyfletcher photography website to you all . . . finally! It has been such a fun, exciting, annoying, frustrating, exhausting . . . process that we thought we’d blog about what it took to create this masterpiece so that you too could be a part of it.
Step one was to create a new logo. We worked with an incredible designer, Wendy of BrokenBoxDesigns. The process of conveying our vision to someone who did not know us was at times challenging but in the end she absolutely nailed it! We heart our characters so much. Thank you thank you thank you Wendy!!
Little did I know, that was the easy part. Step two was creating the actual website. Our original website was strictly HTML, my wheelhouse. For our new site, we partnered with the awesome folks at prophotoblogs and wordpress. I have messed around a little bit with wordpress in the past and frankly, we don’t get along but I was determined to make it work this time. I’ll be honest, at times I wanted to give up. At times I wanted to write them a strongly worded letter about how I think things should work. At times I wanted to throw my computer off my desk (but if you read our Jonathan & Blakley page, you’d know that I heart apple and that would have been a shame). But in the end, what became of the frustration, sweat and tears is, well, beautiful. Since sometimes it is hard to fully appreciate the emotions another goes through, we thought we would re-create what has been going on over the last month . . . please don’t laugh too hard.
And now it is live. We cannot believe it and really don’t even know how it happened but now that it’s done we hope you all enjoy looking around. All of the old blog posts are here. Feel free to look at them again, leave some comments (that is the only thing we could not bring with us) and check out the new website! Check back as much as you can stand it. We will be entertaining you with new blog posts often. – Blakley
