For Who I Am With You


As a child I dreamed of visiting England, a world of thatched roofs, tea with cream, and Peter Pan. Many years later, its morphed into a universe of aperture, shutter speed, and, well, tea with cream. Yesterday I had the honor of hosting a photography workshop in London and I am incredibly thankful to do what I love. For those of who have encouraged this endeavor, thank you. I’m a better person because of your support.

    No thank YOU for YOUR support!
    This quote is perfect. Absolutely perfect for Marshall and I. I may have to slip it into my vows. 🙂 So happy that you get to do what you love, travel the world, and help so many people along the way!
    And that bride’s dress is stunning. Can I return mine?

    I am already saving my pennies for when you come back – I would have loved to come this time, but I was a bit late on the uptake.
    I hope you’ve had a fantastic time and enjoyed the city.
    Next time, visit Devon and Cornwall- it’s beautiful and I would be a great guide!

    Jasmine & JD, it was such a pleasure to meet you both. It was a dream and a wish come true to meet you and listen to your advice. I’m gleefully running around the interwebs getting my back end servers configured for a new setup and design to come! Not to mention a rock solid business design too 😀

    Seriously, if you like the idea of "thatched roofed england" you need to get yourselves to the Cotswolds before you go. It’s like middle earth without the hobbits and scary ring!
    I’m from Kent and I just adore the Cotswolds, for quanity englishness there is nothing like it. A 2 hour drive from London, just do it!
