Louise May Photography
by Max Jacobs
Louise May Photography is run by Louise May, a Documentary Wedding Photographer in Devon, UK.
She contacted me via PeoplePerHour.com looking for a WordPress and Divi specialist to help customise her website header and introduce a fullwidth image slider to showcase her beautiful and creative wedding photography.
In addition to design tweaks, Louise also needed help increasing her search engine visibility aka SEO. After all, what good is a beautiful website if no one finds it online?
Due to the specific design requests, my strategy moving forward was to design and develop a custom header and fullwidth image slider with speed and performance in mind. The business of photography obviously relies on epic shots, but unfortunately those photos increase page load time due to their quality/size and often huge number of photos from recent shoots (unless you know the tricks of the trade!).
There’s nothing worse than waiting for a page to load and according to statistics, most people won’t wait more than a few seconds. So there are some big benefits to improving your page load time including increased search visibility aka SEO.
Custom Header + Hero Section including an Image Slider.

Following the search engine optimisation work, Bing rankings have gone from non-existent to page #1 for multiple competitive search terms.
The number of impressions in Google searches has increased by almost 260% over a 2 month period.
Site Speed Boost
Decreased page load time by 300%.
I would, and do, highly recommend Max to anyone and everyone! I started working with Max to improve the functionality and speed of my website along with some custom coding for design tweaks. Not only is working with Max an absolute pleasure, he is also quick, efficient and incredibly knowledgeable. Max is very dedicated and his communication is second to none. The improvement in the performance of my site is incredible! Thank you Max! Looking forward to continuing our work together!
