Great SDE, especially based on it being your first 'real' one. If you were in SoCal, I'd hire you to do my wedding next July based on it.

Hey Peter,

We were hired for this wedding already - and decided it would be a great opportunity to do our first SDE so we did it as a bonus. The groom kept it as a surprise from the bride and guests - that way if it all went pear-shaped then it wasn't a great loss.

Cheers,

Matthew.

Thanks for sharing!

PS - Shadowplay - are all your collaterals/ads/marketing materials BW? I felt the last graphic with your name (despite your company name) begged for color, at least in the typeface or the bokeh. Just an opinion ;)
Thanks Jason - it means a lot coming from a champion like yourself!

Good point on our corporate image ... it's something I'd been thinking about but it had slipped off my to do list. We want the black and white to look classy ... but sometimes it can look boring so a splash of colour somewhere is a great idea.

Cheers,

Matthew.
