I usually type out a little blurb about the wedding day however Amanda took the time to send us an amazing email thanking us for the day and our hard work. Except to say that I had a simply wonderful day with Amanda & Michael at Xanadu Winery (incredible venue by the way) I don't think anything I could write could top Amanda's words. So read on...
"Hi Andrew, I wanted to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for your work providing the beautiful photos for our wedding. We were over the moon with the result. It was such a nice surprise to open the box and find not only the digital files we ordered (beautifully packaged) but also a recording of our wedding speeches and a beautiful album. The album layout and photos you selected are perfect.
When we first contacted Imajica for our wedding photography I was very much out of my depth and had no idea what to order or what questions to ask. Both you and Carissa were so very helpful with all your advice through out the process and very accommodating to my many emails and questions.
It was a blessing to have your ideas and experience, as you knew exactly what I wanted and was able to guide me in the right direction. I was amazed at what you were able to achieve working within my budget. On the day your calm, cruisy attitude was a godsend, as I was nervous as all hell! We felt very comfortable with you around and Michael and I were able to relax and enjoy the day. We appreciated you staying later and the nightime shots were a great experience that was an extra special for us. This was actually one of our highlights of the whole day, as it gave us a moment to sneak out and spend time together taking it all in. We love the final product. We felt so comfortable and the shots you took are amazing. I really felt like you understood exactly what I had envisioned and you provided far beyond expectations. I hope you can use my recommendation so that other brides can have the same wonderful experience I had. Thanks again, Amanda & Michael Newman"

What a cracker of a day this one was! Jess & Adam's wedding was a while back now (don't know why I haven't posted it earlier!) but nonetheless I had a freakin' awesome day with these two.
Adam & his groomsmen got ready at the Injidup Surf Shack. It's pretty much a little fishing shack tucked away in the hills overlooking Injidup beach, it's a super cool space and has mad views!
With no neighbours to speak of it's the perfect place for the lads to spend the night before getting hitched.
And Jess, I tip my hat to you. You are one seriously fearless bride! She dragged her dress down some crazy goat trails, climbed boulders and jumped barbed wire fences to get the photos she wanted. Did I mention she looked stunning? Yes she did indeed.
Thanks for your awesomeness you two, this photographer couldn't have asked for more. Click here to see full post!

Well it's that time of the year again. And a happy belated new year to you all! It's been a busy start to the year so you'll have to forgive our tardiness on getting this out to you all.
I'll keep the intro short and sweet.
2014 was an amazing year. All our clients were just brilliant. Their weddings took us to some incredible places. All over Perth, down south, Rottnest. We even went as far as Kangaroo Island over in South Australia!
Certainly made it a difficult task narrowing down the images. As a result this is a bloody big blog post so grab some popcorn and a comfy chair.
So without further ado, welcome to our 4th installment of the Imajica Retrospective.
Here's 2014 in a nutshell! Click here to see full post.
I first met Holly & Steve at a wedding earlier in the year. Steve was MC at Erin and Sean's wedding out in the Swan Valley. We got chatting, had a few laughs and I thought "He's cool".
Didn't think anything more of it.
About a month later I receive a call. "Andrew, it's Steve here mate, from Erin and Sean's wedding. Holly & I are getting married in November, we want you for our photography. We're doing it in Mauritius".
Umm, wait a minute... what? Mauritius?
It's not everyday that wedding clients fly you across the ocean to some idyllic tropical paradise. As you can imagine I was happy to comply.
However no wedding is complete without a few hurdles. A cyclone sitting a few hundred kilometers away off the coast of Madagascar, groomsmen's outfits lost in transit. Little things like that. But the big day went off without a hitch. Except Holly & Steve of course, they got hitched (Haha, I made a Dad joke!).
To Holly, Steve and all their guests, thanks for the memories. Crazy fun day! Click here to see full post.

Here's one that's been sitting on a hard drive for a while.
Natalie & Sean were married last year and I've been wanting to post their day for ages. It's just a little thing called parenthood got in the way (yep, babies make life busy... but in the best way possible!).
"So why did you want to post this one so much?" I hear you ask. Well, it was just damn good fun!
The bridesmaids laid it on hard for the groom and his entourage when they arrived at Natalie's parent's house. There was a price to pay for the guys to enter the bride's domain. The looks of disgust on the groomsmen's face while trying to eat the cold sour pies says it all. Proper respects were paid with traditional tea ceremonies at both parent's houses then it was off to St Mary's in Leederville to make it all official.
Seems the pastor was a stand up comedian in a past life, he had the crowd in stitches during the ceremony. His delivery may have been lighthearted but his message was clear, be good to each other!
I certainly don't see that being too hard for these two. Throughout the rest of the day I saw just how madly & head over heels in love Natalie & Sean are with each other, the evidence is overwhelming!
After an afternoon of laughs & shenanigans we all headed to Crown Perth. Their reception kicked on in the always amazing Astral Room. The groomsmen made quite an entrance, think Chariots of Fire in super slow motion... with added drama!
Natalie & Sean took straight to the dance floor and totally owned it.
From there the good times just rolled on into the night!
Ah yes, good times indeed. Click here to see full post.

So here we are again, 2013 done & dusted, 2014 ahead of us like a bag of mixed candy waiting in their wrappers.
But before we head on down into the new year I'd like you all to consider the two words in bold type below...
moment mo·ment [moh-muhnt]
1. a short indefinite period of time.
2. a specific instant or point in time.
3. the moment the present point of time.
fleeting fleet·ing [flee-ting] — adjective - passing swiftly; vanishing quickly; transient; transitory: a fleeting glance.
Looking at all these little moments while I was pulling this year's retrospective together reconfirmed to me
how these two words are so integral to what we do.
I don't think about it too often, I feel these two words are so over used.
But it reconfirmed for me that this is what shooting weddings is all about. These fleeting little moments that you can't get back.
A look, a smile, a tear, a wink, a hug, a laugh... They're gone in a flash, never to return.
In case you haven't guessed yet this is the theme for our review of 2013, fleeting moments.
So what were our highlights for 2013? Hard to say really. We travelled far and wide for weddings last year, all over WA and beyond.
We went to Rotto. We went down south. We went to Sydney. We went to Mauritius.
Oh, and Carissa & I became parents.
I shortlisted 495 images from tens of thousands. My goal was 50 images, I managed to get it down to 71.
There's something here from every wedding we did last year. There may even be one of yours truly stealing kisses from one of our fabulous brides!
It only seems like a few months ago that I wrote "Well didn't 2012 just fly by?"
So... where did 2013 go?
Who knows really. All I know is that it was full of fabulous moments and it was fleeting...
And so here it is, our 3rd annual retrospective. Happy viewing punters.

We've been a bit quite with the blog this year haven't we?
It's not through lack of trying, that's for sure! Had a truckload of weddings this year, it's simply been noses to the grindstone. 2013 has been a good one.
Anyhoo, here's one from way back in February, Jade & Clay's wedding at Matilda Bay.
It was like hanging out with a bunch of mates with these two and bridal party. "Can we stop at the bottle shop on the way to the beach?" Well, it's February, it's about 35 degrees, ummm, yea, let's do that!
Seriously, my belly ached from laughing all day.
Well, I won't say too much more except that Matilda Bay restaurant is one of the finest venues in Perth for a wedding reception, for one you simply can't beat that view.
So happy viewing punters! Click here to see full post.
