Best WordPress Themes for Photographers

Works with Lightroom through WP/LR Sync

All the themes I recommend have been tested by me. Note that WP/LR Sync works with any theme, the Media Library is always synced naturally. However, many themes are using customized gallery systems that needs a bit of glue or configuration. The themes showcased here are 100% working with WP/LR Sync.

Photography or Photome by ThemeGoods

You will need to enable the extension Post Types with the Post Type “gallery“, Mode set to “Array in Post Meta“, Post Meta set to “wpsimplegallery_gallery” and Taxonomy to “gallerycat“. You can get it here: ThemeForest.

BlueBird by Colormelon

Bluebird Theme

You will need to enable the extension Post Types with the Post Type “portfolio“, Mode set to “Array in Post Meta“, Post Meta set to “village_gallery” and Taxonomy to “portfolio_category“. You can get it here: ThemeForest.

I recommend you to use WPEngine or SiteGround. They are both excellent hosting services and work perfectly with all my plugins.
