The Coronavirus is causing widespread concern and affecting businesses around the world, from large corporations to small mom and pop shops. Global stock markets have plunged, restaurants are reporting fewer patrons, and the travel sector is getting hammered. This was my last wedding before government declared certain strict rules with regards to the gathering of 100 people or more.

It was a wet and rainy Friday the 13th wedding in Pretoria East, but this did not stop the couple at all in celebrating their love for each other. Ivory Manor, not only do you have one of the most exquisite venues in Pretoria, but your staff are truly amazing – well done I will surely give you a 6 star rating!

Celebrating your Love Story – with Geraldine & Jesse Ackerman

We’ve been together for 12years, got married after 10years, married 1 year now. On my 30th birthday he told me he did not buy me a birthday present, BUT we are getting married in 10 days time! ALL planned by my him, friends and family, everything arranged behind my back, So yes i got a surprise wedding, all that I was aloud to know was that it will be in my sisters garden with just a hand full of family, and I got to pick my dress. In my head and what i was told is that my parents will not be able to make it they live in KZN at that time we lived in PTA.

So when i counted down my 10 days, to receive my birthday gift. HECTIC! The day came. Was at the salon getting dressed and ready, my sister’s husband picked me up and here we go on our way to my sisters house, but on our way we took a turn and stopped at a place, when we turned the corner inside a premises, I saw my dad waiting for me at the end of the garden path. WOW. so much for a small wedding.

Everything from food, Cake, decor, tables, DJ, Family, Friends and everything was perfect. BUT one of my friends know a friend of a friend that is a startup photographer. I did not get a lot of photos or good quality of my EXTRA special day.

Matric Farewell Photographer Darrell Fraser

I have been fortunate throughout my career as photographer to do some of the most amazing matric farewell photoshoots in the country. Most of my matric farewell shoots are done before or after the actual event as I offer styled matric farewell sessions throughout the year and cannot get to all the matrics. I am truly blessed.

I am sharing some of the highlights I have covered the last couple of years at various venues.

Personal Branding for Entrepreneurs with Darrell Fraser

With the development of social media and an increasingly individualised society, the brand you build around yourself is perhaps the single most important way you can stand out in your spheres of influence. If you’re just beginning to think about your personal brand, it’s crucial that you understand that personal branding is the means by which people remember you.

Your Brand is more than a headshot, trademark or a stunning logo: It is how you present yourself online and offline to potential clients and customers.

Sharing a few photos from this beautiful wedding of Kirsty and Jason at Mabula Game Lodge just outside Bela Bela Limpopo. The couple flew in a week earlier from USA to celebrate their special wedding day with close friends and family.

It was a challenging two weeks in Gauteng and Limpopo with massive amounts of rain and floods, but their wedding turned out amazing with perfect weather and tons of love!

This is the wedding that I would probably never forget, especially the date. While busy with reception I got a phone call that changed my life in so many ways. Never take anything for granted, love unconditionally

Sharing twins Tanya and Ryna’s fitness photoshoot in Pretoria. I find it extremely challenging to find gymnasiums that are not full of #$%^* when it comes to doing photoshoots inside their premises. Virgin Active Faerie Glen, I am very disappointed!!!!!

We then got the opportunity to shoot at a gym called Body Mind Fitness Studio at the Glen Village Shopping Centre in Pretoria East.

You work hard to stay fit, you have the discipline to look your best. I help create content for fitness models and bodybuilders daily. Call me for more information and packages – thank you girls loved the session and thank you Gemma Rain for your assistance appreciate you girl!
