Showit website templates for those who want more.

We created Black Tie Design Co. because we were like you – wedding industry creatives who weren’t satisfied with their web presence. We wanted to create a website that stood out from the crowd, with excellent visual design to go hand-in-hand with our world-class work. Turns out we’re really good at creating websites – and now we want to do it for you too.

“Holy Shit. I’m in love.

WHo We Are

Jordan & Chelsey Barhorst are the husband and wife team behind Black Tie. We used sound business strategy, maximized our existing talent, and developed a thirst to constantly improve in order to build our successful wedding photography business. Along the way we learned a ton about how to succeed in the industry and which pitfalls to avoid. Now we want to share it all with you.

A Design-First Approach Centered Around You.

Our approach to each custom project is highly personalized and starts with getting to know you and your business at a granular level. We’ll gain a deep understanding of where you are today and where you’d like to go next – then I’ll build you the tools to help get there. Our process is intense – and is required to truly understand our clients to create world-class solutions for each of them. For this reason, we only work with 4-6 businesses per year.

A few of our favorite projects include:

Before working with Black Tie, I would describe my website as “detached.” There was no real cohesiveness. After my launch, I had a new found confidence in what I’m doing. All of the sudden, I started booking my DREAM clients! It also helped me raise my prices because I finally had something to reflect the work we do.

Discovering Black Tie Design Co.'s Showit templates was a game-changer for my wedding photography business. The ease of customization allowed me to create a website that truly reflects my style and brand.

Since launching, we were not only able to confidently raise our minimum prices because we finally had a site that showed off the caliber of our work, but our overall average spend increased by 47%.

My website fully encompasses our brand and who we are. The design and flow of it is easy to navigate and easy to manage. It was a perfect fit.

Kind words from awesome people
