What my clients had to say

Couple: Andrew & Karen Hendricks
Wedding Date: 29 November 2008

We got married on a beautiful summers day on a stunning wine estate between Stellenbosch and Klapmuts.

I don’t think all the descriptive words in the world would be enough to describe or explain just how special Darren made our wedding day. Andrew and I were wondering just how we could do his work justice by using just the right words, but this seemed to be an impossible task. Words can never describe the masterpiece he created for us.

Darren does not only take photos, he creates magic. He captured our day exactly as it happened. He captured emotions, the laughter, the tears. You can actually feel the emotion by looking at the pics. When we looked at the pictures taken on our wedding day we relived every moment.

Wherever we go people have complimented us on the stunning pictures. Its like everyone wants a picture as a memorabilia of the day. Darren we could not have asked for a better person. Thanks for capturing the most beautiful day of our lives.

Ryan and Angelique takes the next step

Set in the majestic valley of the Cape Winelands, Ryan and Angelique have chosen Lanzerac, one of the most exquisite wedding venues to be joined in matrimony on the 8th of August 2009. I had the pleasure of meeting this warm and friendly couple for coffee, where we discussed what I can do for them as a photographer.

After much deliberation and negotiations, it was unanimous that I would be chosen to share their day with them. Yes, I was chosen as their wedding photographer and what an honour it is. Celebrating such a momentous day, we could not negate the opportunity to do an e-session and what a good decision that was.

We meet a few weeks later at the place where Ryan proposed to Angelique.

Full of laughter and cheer, Angelique played along as we recreated the day Ryan popped the question. “Come on Ryan on your knees chanted Angelique”. Ryan, now turning a light shade of red, giggles, gets on his knees and plays along. He gazes at her and for a moment it seemed as Ryan has lost his voice and the ability to think straight. Peeping through my view finder, I see the love and respect they have for each other. As Ryan gazes and Angelique getting lost in the moment, they embraced without saying a word and like magic, they knew what they wanted to say to each other.

Overlooking the Stellenbosch wine valley, I saw why Ryan chose this place to propose too Angelique. Filled with pristine beauty, peace and calmness, the wine lands were metaphors of Ryan and Angelique.

A blessed and passionate couple, I wish you all the best for your wedding preparation and am looking forward to making your day a success.

Best wishes

Your Photographer

Here's a few more pictures of their e-session:

Welcome to my world

Hi Guys,

To all of you who know me and those who don't.

I would like to welcome you to the home of “Darren’s photography”. It has been sometime now (well at least nine months that is) that I have been armed with my beautiful Canon 40D and have been capturing those moments in time.

I thought to myself, what good would it be to keep these wonderful moments to myself? Ya, my thoughts exactly, that's why I created this blog, so that you can view and monitor what I have been up to.

Well, as you know blogs contain a wide range of information, but with my blog and with your help. I want to create a place where memories are shared and kept.

As you will see in the coming weeks, I will be posting various pictures or articles ranging from your wedding day, birthday party, photojournalism and a myriad of other collectable memories.

This blog has been created with you in mind, so any ideas or suggestions are most welcome.

All I will say, Watch this space!!!

Well living in this beautiful City, we cannot escape the dangers that lurks around us during the day. As a freelance Photo Journalist, I sometime happen to stumble on horrific crime scenes or accidents. The pictures that you see below are contrast to what we percieve to be beautiful.

These pics have either been printed in various publication such the Daily voice, Die Son, Cape Argus etc.
