    Hi, I'm a wedding photographer based in Ibiza and have been using wordpress in order to promote myself and my work here on the Island. I was wondering if one of you pro's could have a look and let me know your honest opinion?! Thanks!

    I like it, I haven't had a chance to have a deeper looks, but I do have two suggestions just from the front page.

    It would probably be a good idea to make the email address in your footer a mailto link.

    I'm also not sure about the navigation. I clicked on 'photography in ibiza' expecting to go to another page, but I remained on the front page. Maybe this should be renamed to home, or something similar, and it is standard convention that it is the first link in the navigation, but you have it as second. People expect to find it first, and web users generally like to find things where they expect them to be.

    I think it looks very nice though. :)

    Hi,
    Thanks very much for your feedback John, it's appreciated!
    I can see what you mean by the slightly confusing formate. I've attempted to move the home page up in front of 'categories' by ranking it number 1 in the admin section under 'pages', but this hasn't made any difference to its position. Do you have any suggestions as to how to change this?

    Thanks again :)

    Nice site! I'll make a few suggestions FWIW.

    Since it's a business site you may consider losing the contact page and putting all of your contact info on the homepage. It should fit well in the bottom right and will get your customers to you one click quicker.

    Also, since you only have one category, weddings, why not rename it weddings. If you are planning on adding things in the future, and need a drop down, just don't use the term "categories". Use event or subject. Categories sounds too WP Dashboard.
