The meeting met Eugene and Augusta in Nelspruit a week before their wedding day to discuss the big day’s proceedings and to get to know them a bit better.

Peak, snow

I had a dream A year ago I at last had the opportunity to make my dream of traveling to the Himalayas a reality. Ever since my first hike in the Drakensberg I’ve had a fascination with Everest and the Himalayas. I always dreamed of following in the footsteps of Hillary, Tenzing-Norgay, Messner, Breashears, Viesturs […]

By Eksteen | Sep 20, 2017 | 0 Comments

I had to look twice to make sure the date was correct. 31 December! “Well, that is one way to see out the year” I said. Ann and Don sheepishly laughed and explained that the combined after – New Year’s evening party would be totally worth it. I had never done a Scottish wedding before […]

Lyla & Ruan’s wedding | Kralinbergh

By Eksteen | Dec 21, 2016 | 0 Comments

For a change it was great to do a wedding shoot on the Highveld. The cooler climate is a welcome relief from the hot temperatures we experience during the summer months in Nelspruit and the scenery and landscape is also very different from the sub-tropic Lowveld. Lyla and Ruan’s wedding venue was at the stunning […]
