Paul Von Rieter and Maria Bernal Join the Flaunt Your Site Team!

22 March

I am pleased beyond belief today to announce that Flaunt Your Site has become an official sponsor for two of the most talented photographers on the planet. Maria Bernal and Paul Von Reiter may have very opposite styles and backgrounds, but there’s no denying that they are both remarkable image makers.


Maria Bernal was making prints in her own darkroom, her father built for her, before she was even out of elementary school. Photography has been her life’s passion since. Her wedding and portrait photography take on a rich flavor of high end European fashion, and demonstrate her unwillingness to let anything be seen that isn’t worthy of hanging on her top client’s walls. Her awards are many including PPA International Photographer of the Year in 2011, Austin Photographer of the Year 3 years in a row, and has been published numerous times, most recently taking the cover of PPA’s Professional Photographer Magazine.


Paul Von Rieter is the wedding industry’s Golden Child. While his own passion with photography started just a few years ago, he’s quickly become one of the hardest working and methodical photographers around, and is one of the best story tellers around. Paul’s knack for documenting amazing love stories has landed him in the Rangefinder Magazine “Nikon Wedding Series,” as well as being featured in just about every wedding blog online! No kidding, here are just a few: Vera Wang, The Wedding Chicks, Grey Likes Weddings, Forget Me Knot, and Ruffles and Pearls called him one of the top 5 wedding photographers in the world!

Flaunt Your Site looks forward to a long relationship with both Paul and Maria, making sure that their design, hosting and SEO, are on the same level as the amazing images that they produce every day.

Flaunt Your Site’s New Logo!

22 March

Some of you at WPPI got to see the brand new logo and cards that we had made up for Flaunt Your Site. The new logo design and card layout was done by our super talented designer Jonathan. We hope to have a new website design up in the next month which will feature this brand new logo. So keep your eyes peeled.

Until then, let us know what you think of the new design, and let us know if you are looking for a new logo of your own.

Froxy Photography – Design Client Spotlight

06 March

“How about racing stripes?”

I’m not sure if it was the affirmative response, or the combination of Australian accent combined with the profane “F*** yeah.” But somewhere in there I fell in love with Xanthe Roxburgh and Naomi Frost. Two enigmatic visual artists disguised as wedding photographers from Newcastle, in New South Wales. They were looking for something that matched their bold, left-turned approach to life and photography.

Their logo, which Xanthe came up with, was the foot on the rock for the whole site. It established the color and it really helped with the direction. As we went on, often times on Skype while Xanthe’s little boy Arlo ran around the house naked after his bath, the only comments I received during the design process was “Could you make it bolder?”  So I ditched all the textures and pretty things that most other wedding photographers want and asked her about the racing stripes. And that’s when everything started to come together.

There are a few really great custom touches that we put into the site that I was quite proud of. Because they do wedding and portrait photography, I had to create a call to action that worked for both. “Book a Wedding” doesn’t work for portrait sessions, and “Book a Session” doesn’t work for weddings. So harnessing the power of WordPress and PHP, I was able to have two call to actions, but display “Book a Wedding” only for blog posts that have been assigned the “Wedding” category, and for anything else, “Book a Session” gets served up.

The Froxy Ladies as they call themselves are so much fun, you definitely need to have a look at their website, and their work. The imagery they do is quirky, eccentric, sometimes bordering on being Not Safe For Work (NSFW), but you will love what you see and if you live in Australia, you’ll want to “Be Shot” by them.
