Testimonial:

Ons het vir Darrell Fraser opgespoor op die internet en besluit om haar te vra om te kwoteer na ons haar foto’s op die website deur gegaan het wat asemrowend gelyk het. Sy het die ekstra myl gegaan om ons te akkomodeer met ons klein intieme troue en ons ‘n spesiale bekostigbare prys gekwoteer. Darell het by ons huis gearriveer en sy het vroer opgedaag wat wonderlik was en sy het Denise saam gebring om te help om ons foto’s te neem vir die dag. Hulle vriendelikheid, entoesiasme, proffesionalisme en passie vir fotografie skyn deur. Hulle is behulpsaam en geduldig om die regte foto’s te neem en seker te maak dat ons die asemrowende dag vas vang op film en hulle het duisende foto’s geneem om van te kies. Die hele troue is van begin tot einde afgeneem en dit is deeglik gedoen -  Van die ringe, rok, hare, make-up, aantrek, seremonie, ondertekeninge, funksie, koek en alles deurgaans tot die einde. Ons sprokies verhaal kan ons virewig na terug kyk en net glimlag en se wat ‘n pragtige dag met die beste foto’s ooit! Ons kan vir Darell en Denise verwys na enige iemand, as die beste fotograwe wat ons al gebruik gemaak het van, en ons sal verseker in die toekoms weer gebruik maak van hulle! Baie dankie vir die fantastiese spesiale dag wat julle saam met ons gedeel het!

Kuthaba Lodge - Michiel & Tish

 

Set in the majestic Waterberg Mountains with unspoilt landscapes, Malaria free and within close proximity to Gauteng, the lodge presents itself as a wildly African setting for any occasion. Built using unique architecture that emphasises the splendour of nature, a harmonious blend of rich textures and warm colours crafted by hand seamlessly melds the ruggedness of a spectaclular bushveld setting with comfort. Crossing mountain streams to open savanah plains teaming with wildlife, returning by game-viewer to a starlit riversand boma lit by a crackling bonfire, accompanied by the evening chorus.

Michiel & Tish Lombard’s fairytale story:

Wedding Date: Tuesday 20 December

Michiel and I met at a Karaoke bar beginning of 2008 … it was love at first song!!

The first night I saw him I told my friend that’s the man I am going to marry one day.

At first we were just very good friends, until one weekend when we all decided to go camping in winter next to a dam … and our first kiss.

We’ve been together for 4 years and married nearly 5 months.

I’ve known Darrell Fraser for years, I’ve been her make-up artist for all her studio shoots and weddings.  She’s the best photographer ever.  We did our pre-wedding shoot with Darrell which was absolutely amazing and the photos were incredible.  Darrell designed our Wedding Guest Book using our pre-wedding photos, which was so funky!

The wedding was exactly what we ever wished for … a true fairytail.

Darrell joined us at Kuthaba Lodge a day before the wedding with Nadia, her second shooter, scouting the area to make sure we will have the best photos for our wedding the next day.  Darrell’s way of capturing those special moments are so relaxed and tons of fun.  She was a big part of our wedding from beginning to end.  Never once was it necessary for me to ask her for anything or tell her what to do, as she is totally confident in her abilities as a wedding photographer, delivering photos and album designs of outstanding quality!  Our friends and family who saw our photos all commended Darrell on how incredibly talented she is in what she’s doing, she’s a great blessing in our lives.

My Wedding Dress:  I saw my wedding dress on the internet and imported it fro overseas.  Someone helped me to put the final touches and detail to the dress before the wedding (The Wedding Wardrobe)

Flowers and extras:  Anneke – privately owned business in Modimole

Michiel’s suit: Designer Gerald of Pretoria – their prices are amazing

Hair Stylist:  Amore de Villiers

Honeymoon: Zanzibar ( WOW )

My loyal second shooter – Nadia Joubert

Pre-Wedding Couple Photography

 

E-Session with Tish and Michiel

 

The pre-wedding couple shoots is a must for every couple before they get married. This is a fun and relaxed shoot where the couple can get to know me as their photographer, and get a feel for posing for their wedding day. I guide the couple throughout the shoot with posing tips and advice for their wedding day. Champagne is a must for these shoots, after all, we are celebrating LOVE !!

You can view their wedding photos here!

Herewith sample pages from the wedding guest book.

The  well-designed hotel and the carefully selected colors and materials make the  setting unique. The open plan décor and superior furnishings of DeStijl Gariep  Hotel give a sense of luxury, fit for a bride, her groom and her family and  friends.

Our  spa offers all the best treatments in a tranquil and pristine atmosphere,  rejuvenating and revitalizing your soul and body before the big day. All you  have to do is let yourself be spoilt by our team!

We can accommodate up  to 300 guests at the wedding feast as well as accommodation for 92 people. We  will be happy to coordinated accommodation with our neighbours.

I’ve known Antoinette for some years now, being a photographer I have had the priviledge of photographing her as a model at a few occassions.  To me one of the most beautiful models to photograph, with a beautiful personality and now living in the Karoo on a farm with her newly wed husband, Renier.  Congratulations you two, it was great capturing this special day for you.

Karen & Weyer Cremer

 

My dearest sister Karen got married to Weyer, celebrating this very special day at Avianto.  With my loyal and great friend by my side again, Babsie Wessels, we captured my sister’s whole event.  We took an old Canon 350D and had it converted to Infrared.  The effect … stunning photos with a purple effect, as can be seen with the first photo for example.

‘Vinnige Fanie’ and Jana de Villiers

 

I had the privilege of photographing Fanie and Jana’s wedding with my great great friend, Babsie Wessels.  This was such a special day, filled with joy, laughter,  love and lots of celebrities!

For those who don’t know who Fanie is (which I seriously doubt) - he was a cricketer who played 18 Tests and 83 One Day Internationals for South Africa as a right arm fast-medium bowler and right hand batsman between 1992 and 1998. He is also currently the presenter on MNet’s popular cricket program called “BVP Krieket geselsprogram”.

De Villiers debuted in first-class cricket in 1985-86 for Northern Transvaal B. He opened the bowling in both innings, taking 5 for 33 in the second. He also played a season for English county teamKent in 1990.

In 1993-94, at the age of 29, he was called up for the Test tour of Australia. He was selected for the first Test in Melbourne but it was at the second Test in Sydney where De Villiers established himself at Test level. With Australia needing just 117 runs to win, De Villiers took 6 for 43, including the final wicket – a return catch from Glenn McGrath - to lead South Africa to a five run victory. De Villiers’ match figures of 10 for 123 saw him named Man of the Match.

Former England captain Tony Greig had said at the start of the final innings that South Africa’s chances were 100-1. At the Man of the Match presentation, De Villiers reminded him of his statement, adding, “You know South Africans; we never give up.”

Cherie and Justin got married on a very wet and rainy day.   It started raining very early in the morning and didn’t stop, but the weather didn’t stop this girl’s spirit.  During the church service the electricity dropped and they carried on with candles. Justin and Cherie – an absolute pleasure sharing this special day with you.
