It all started on a late summer evening last year when google maps decided that a tiny, winding road over the tallest hills in the area was a perfectly acceptable route for me to take on my way home from a wedding. I stopped on the side of the road, got out of the car and just stood there for a minute taking in the view, the wind and the sheep. Then I texted Tom: “How about we do your portraits in the Shropshire Hills?” with a photo attached.
Fast forward to early March this year and the only sunny day in sight. Whilst the wind was a little bit more than we bargained for, and perhaps a little more freezing gales than wind, the view and the sheep did not disappoint. And luckily for me, Tom and Ryan both enjoy skipping across the hills about as much as I do. We went a mere week before their wedding and planning and organising were on an all-time high at this point. But I think a day out with your hair blowing around your head was exactly what these two needed. Thank you both for such a fab day out and let’s go back hiking there soon – with a little less wind hopefully.
