The Overview

Haven Photo & Co. is a wedding and lifestyle photographer who is inspired by the natural, tender moments that happen as the day unfolds. Based north of Seattle, Marissa Simpson specializes in weddings, elopements, engagements, and lifestyle family photos. Marissa's business was several years old and needed a website refresh.


The Problem

I had designed her logo a year prior, and it was such an enjoyable experience. As someone who did photography as a side hustle (slowly building it to be the main hustle!) she needed to space out the large business expenditures. She previously had a very basic Wix site that was much too difficult for her to maintain or navigate. She wanted something fresh, clean, organized, and user-friendly.


The Solution

I chose to design her site in Squarespace so I could teach her the basics of editing and maintaining the site herself (since she would need to continually update her blog.) Designing photography websites in Squarespace is extremely satisfying, as the templates they offer are so picture-driven. Her photos dazzle and her new site showcases her work beautifully.
