Normally they have a fixed format or structure, such as header, navigation, sidebar, text area etc. etc. But if you are handling a photography website, let it be a wedding photography website, you have to tackle many problems if you did not consider the basics of its design.

Photo portfolios typically have two or three main sections:

Contact section
About section (if needed)
