darrell fraser south african wedding and portrait photographer

Hi there! I am Darrell, a female wedding & portrait photographer. I’ve put my fast paced corporate career as IT Project Manager on hold in favour of my passion. I’m capturing every moment on camera and you can come along, if you’d like.

I have been behind the camera for more than a decade … making memories. I also own a creative design studio where, together with my son and a great team, we create magic! From product photography, branding, graphic design to wedding stationery and wedding website invitations. If you have a minute hop on over to my design studio!

RAND AIRPORT COUPLE SHOOT

Dear Darrell,  Your photographs are incredible….! The beautiful bride to be absolutely radiates happiness and her complexion looks flawless. The charming gentleman looks cooler than James Dean and his stoic patience with the day’s proceedings have clearly paid major dividends. Each photo is quite beautiful, the setting superb, the clothes and outfits fit the background and era depicted perfectly and the way each shot is composed is a whole new kind of awesome.You are a rare talent indeed, Ms Fraser, and your photos are of award winning quality and oozes classiness and style. Well done, Darrell. I was there and saw you take these pictures and I still cannot believe my eyes. As a hopeless romantic I really am pleased that the day turned out so well, and that Amanda and I could play a small part in capturing your happiness for all to see. I hope you will have a stunning wedding, and the lake district at Chrissiesmeer is just perfect. I wish you health, wealth and a long and happy life together.Kindest regards, Etienne Moolman

What a beautiful letter from Herman, thank you from the bottom of my heart – wedding at The Farm Inn Pretoria

Die lewe is baie kort, ek leef maar vir die moment….dis nou dalk die moment…. is mar net hoe ek is, vreemd soos dit is…. miskien beteken dit vir jou iets…. as jy dalk twyfel … maar dis soos ander jou sien: Van ek jou in aksie gesien het met die foto’s op ons troudag, wou ek al lankal iets sê, deur al my travel en ervarings (nogal meer as die normale mens), het ek nog nooit iemand so passievol oor enige iets gesien nie. Liewe aarde!!! wat ek daai dag beleef het sal my by bly vir ewig. Jy stroom net van energie en ontplof gereeld met die krag wat ʼn atoombom soos ʼn blip laat lyk. Sjoe…. Mens kan dit duidelik in jou werk sien, jy is vir my regtig die Toppunt van Vrou wees… Jy weet, daar is soveel Posts op FaceBook van Strong Woman dit en die moderne Vrou dat… en ek skud soms net my kop oor hoe maklik mense hulleself dinge kan toeëien …en ek dink dan …. Strong en emancipated Woman wat…. dit is nie net ʼn aanstuur van ʼn post wat jou waarlik vrou maak nie, dis die voorbeeld wat jy leef… en dank die hemele daar is regtig van julle (Strong Women) daar buite , nie baie nie maar wel… So as jy twyfel eendag onthou watter inspirasie jy eendag in iemand vreemds se lewe gemaak het…. ek sou wat wou gee dat my dogters ook dit so kan uitleef…. PS: Min dinge impress my werklik…. Jammer as dit jou ongemaklik laat voel…
