New photos and SEO update!

Sorry for lack of updates here. There are more updates on the main blog and this one (if you've found it randomly or are subscribed to it - THANKYOU) is purely to capture a wider audience! 

I've been doing a lot of background Search Engine Optimisation work on the website and also been buying some new URLs (not active yet) to act as new gateways for better SEO and linking.  The new SEO work isn't due to us having a lack of wedding photography work (very much far from it...the last 2 months saw us capture 7 amazing and totally different weddings all around the UK with more starting this coming weekend, the following weekend and 5 in August!)  It was purely because we really have some lovely content that was pretty much wasted as the site wasn't getting hit as much as I'd like so...

All this work has definitely paid off because the site's gone from being on around page 8 of Google for our most specific keywords to page 1 which I'm over the moon with. Also 2 other wedding magazines have found our work and want us to send them examples of weddings we've captured for possible features.

We're also going to be changing hosts to an SSD VPS soon as the shared effort that 1&1 provide is terrible and they randomly drop the site for no reason (monitored by a plugin I have in the admin on the site.  Anyhow...here's some more wedding photographs from around the UK and destination weddings. 

As always, if you have any questions or you'd love for us to capture your wedding, wherever in the world it may be, please fire away on the emails or on the chat window on our website - JustinKrause.co.uk / PhotographerSomerset.com.

Logo re-design

We have a slight shift in logo design for 2015. We're aiming at a more casual yet still professional look that gets the message across for what we do in one fell swoop. "Wedding Photography all around the UK and Abroad".  We also wanted to tie the Logo from Orchard Studio's into the main logo to show more cohesion.

Semi re-branding.

For the more eagle-eyed amongst you some of you might have noticed a slight change to the website and the logo.  As you're aware from reading the ABOUT US page weddings and some portraits are undertaken by myself and Emily, my wife. Despite the URL for the main site staying the same for the mean time and the Twitter and Facebook pages also not changing (because of the links that are spread around the web everywhere) we've come up with a new logo.

It retains the same font as the Justin Krause Photography so hopefully, subconsciously, the company name will be recognisable for our existing customers.

It shows that Emily is very much a part of the photography business, for weddings especially where we shoot it from 2 angles; for example prior to the wedding ceremony so our brides & grooms can see what the other was up to before they met at the Church or Venue. We've found this to work really well and it's great to see our brides & grooms faces as they relive their biggest day through our photography from various angles that they might not have seen.

Whilst you're here,  here's a teaser from a beautiful wedding we shot last Sunday at the Limpley Stoke Hotel near Bath.


Join us on Facebook and on Twitter and if you have any questions regarding wedding or portrait photography give us a shout!

BUSY BUSY BUSY !!!

Apologies for the lack of blogging recently! We've been so busy with weddings, portraits and other work (commercial bookings including website photography work for various sites, band photography and web maintenance) that it's not left any time to share what we've been up to recently! Rest assured we will upload some new photographs VERY soon!!

We've recently acquired a new URL which is acting as another gateway to our website. It's aimed primarily at our more local brides & grooms in Somerset but will serve to link to all aspects of our work when I get time to add more to the landing page. There's so many other talented photographers in Somerset (and some very shoddy ones also) so we're doing our best to get near the top of the pile on the search engines so new, prospective brides and grooms can choose the right photographers for them!

Check out the new URL http://PhotographerSomerset.com

Here's a couple teasers from one of our recent weddings - Amelia & Paul at The Shrubbery in Ilminster, Somerset.

Such a great couple, lovely wedding, great wedding, fun guests, amazing weather and lots of fun and memorable times including a Vintage double-decker red bus which was awesome even though the majority of us had to get off and walk up a hill as the old beauty was having none of it fully laden! But that's a story and photos for another blog post!!
