Molly + Co Website Launch Party!

 
Squarespace Website Designer for Wedding Professionals and Photographers | The Editor's Touch Business Blog | Molly + Co Web Design
First of all ..... WOW!!! Heather blew me away with the preview of her sketches, let alone the actual design and implementation of my website. I was peeing my pants with excitement showing my husband the preview and pretty much told that I was leaving him for her! (Kidding - sort of!) But in all seriousness, from the first phone consultation where I couldn’t control my word vomit of what I wanted and needed changed, like yesterday, on my current site — to walking me through the intricacies of how my site will work for me and allowing my opinions to be heard and incorporated — I. JUST. CANT!!!! This process was so much more enjoyable than I could’ve hoped for, and so much faster than I expected!!!

I am very grateful to have been introduced to Heather years ago, have had the time to IG stalk all of her beautiful work, and now be among the lucky folks that have had the pleasure to be her client (and new bff obviously)! I cannot stress enough the importance of hiring Heather to create something bigger than I could’ve ever dreamed up for myself that still felt so much like me. Heather, you nailed it!!

Today is something I have needed for a long time … as some of you may know, August was a complete disaster for me … aside from having my own health concerns and personal ‘not wanted’ issues happen, my 5 year old daughter, Hadley, broke her arm and needed emergency surgery just one week into ‘Seattle summer’ (haha, we get about 4 weeks of hot weather up here …) and it completely stopped my ‘work world’ from continuing as “normal” because my attention pivoted to her care. To come back from a month like that, I was terrified … questions like: would I still have my creative edge ?? haunted me and I was afraid that the emotional turmoil of August would greatly affect my September … and then … I started designing for Molly + Co Photography …

Let’s just say, I needed this. It was therapuetic in the best possible ways … it showed me that I did still have ‘it’ … whatever ‘it’ is … and it allowed me to escape into the world of my computer and just ‘be’ there in design world and create something I didn’t even know would exist until I saw it. And when I saw it … the website that unveiled on my computer for Molly + Co (a Santa Barbara and destination wedding photographer …) … I knew it had to be it!

I’ve “known” Molly for years … known being that I’ve never actually met her, but we’ve had our relationship since I first launched The Editor’s Touch … she first came to me to discuss optimizing her Wordpress website (a service I no longer offer) and while it never came to be ‘hiring me’ we really enjoyed chatting and continued our relationship supporting each other across social media … I adore Molly … she’s such a real person in every sense of the word … and her photography … well, duh(!!), it’s incredible.

When she came to me and hired me to design her website … I was SO ready to begin.

Below is the homepage I designed for Molly:

I love how all the colors work so well together … how they are incorporated in the shapes … how it just oozes COME CLICK ON EVERYTHING and STAY AWHILE … but without all the extra chaos that her old website had …. I love it SO MUCH.

When it came to designing Molly’s portfolio page for her featured weddings I designed a page that made the photos POP OUT of the page for extra excitement … I love how it turned out:

Per usual: GORGEOUS on a mobile phone … which is where over 55% of Molly’s traffic will most likely be from:
