In This Moment 03

In this occasional series (so occasional I've only done it twice, the last time of which was nearly 2 years ago), I've taken a few images over the busy summer that stuck in my mind as suitable for resurrecting this category on the blog. Singular images that are usually relevant as part of a wider set, but also have something that makes them resonate individually. That could be an emotion, a look, a moment, or in this case something that simply looks visually appealing. So let's go again with an image taken during what could only be described as a perfect summer evening. That magical combination of time of day and compliant weather, where shadows grow longer, the light turns golden, and colours are transformed. A moment to look, watch, reflect, sit, or just chill out and enjoy whoever's company you're in.

The golden fields, distant mists and rolling fields could easily be recognised as a landscape of Tuscany with that spectacular light, but in this case the wedding in question was closer to home in Hampshire, at the lovely Cain Manor.

Choosing this is a slight departure for me as I've selected it mainly based on the visual appeal of the image rather than solely the emotion, although I still can summise a story within. Where so much of my work is inevitably client focussed, images like this feel more personal in that visual sense although it is undeniably documentary wedding photography.
