Overview

Founded in 2002, Bella Pictures is an award-winning company that is transforming the wedding photography and videography industry. Bella's technology-driven approach brings new standards of quality, service and transparency to capturing and sharing your wedding memories. StudioBlue.com was a new property focused on the cost-conscience side of today's wedding market.  

The Challenge

The organization needed  a more flexible system that allowed them to react and adapt to an ever-changing market in a cost efficient manner. They chose Drupal, and Ubercart, for the renowned flexibility and the frameworks proven track record in SEO.

The key goals the technical team wanted to accomplish were as follows:

  • Develop a Drupal/Ubercart website in less than two months

  • Prove Drupal could truly meet their organizational challenges

  • Integrate transactional data into the existing Bella infrastructure

  • Customize the shopping cart to allow for a recurring payment plan

  • Create reusable code to allow partner websites on the same basic code base

  • Allow the in-house team to maintain and make future enhancements

  • Repurpose code base to future BellaPictures.com project

Together Bella Pictures and Achieve had a winning formula for the planning, architecture, development and coding of the Studio Blue site so that it meet all of their performance goals, functionality requirements and end user experience expectations.
