Regardt & Antonette | Trail Running

Let me share a secret.  When I was much younger, the most times I thought about photography was when I was out running in the mountains.  My wish was that there would be someone passionate / mad enough to carry all their gear up mountains and capture me as I ran freely in Montagu’s spectacular mountains.  To be honest, half of it was probably to see if my calf muscles showed up when I ran … they were definitely not around when I stood in front of shoe shop mirrors pretending to look at new shoes.  🙂   But I had to let the dream go as I got older.  The calf muscle man search would be abandoned and lost forever …

So I had to become something else.  I became the passionate / mad guy with the gear.

You can guess how excited I was when Regardt & Antonette asked me to do their wedding.  Regardt is now a Kwela celebrity (he was on the show on Tuesday!) with their Zanzibar Circumnavigation on Stand Up Paddle Boards (SUPs).  I have run into him a few times at the Crazy Store Mountain Challenge and knew this guy has serious potential for an adventure shoot.  Antonette did extremely well and both of them enjoyed the workout.  Here is a few shots from before, during and after the Lion’s Head Trail run.  Click on the slideshow if it hasn’t already started (and enjoy the upgraded blog on your tablet or mobile phone alike – go test it!).

And by the way, they both have calf muscles…
