tools of UX

I built this site all in browser – relying on User research. I was given free reign to come up with an initial design and then we would iterate. It was a fun build.

I decided on a site with neutral colours, to compliment the wedding photography that Ruth does – I figure the photos need to stand out and Ruth’s bread and butter is wedding photography.

Ruth also photographs portraits and parties – she is so talented.

Designing Solutions

My goal was to create a seamless and effortless user experience by making navigation easy and straightforward. It was important to me that users could easily understand what services were offered and how they could get in touch with Ruth. To achieve this, I designed a simple and intuitive menu system with clear pricing information, which was readily available to users from within the menu itself.

Next Steps

Ruth enrolled her website in my web maintenance program wherein she pays a nominal fee for services such as hosting, securing the site against hacks, and blocking spam content. As part of this arrangement, there were also plans to link additional social media channels but their implementation remains uncertain.

Conclusion

Think of the site as Ruth’s Digital Calling Card, featuring her stunning and unique photography! This website is designed to showcase Ruth’s talents and allow visitors to browse through her past work at their leisure. With beautifully crafted galleries and intuitive navigation, it is easy to explore and discover all that Ruth has to offer. Her mastery in photography shines through each image, which are brought to life by engaging micro-animations that highlight their beauty and detail. Whether you’re on the look out for a wedding photographer or simply looking for some inspiration, I invite you to immerse yourself in Ruth’s world of photography.
