What would you title this?
I went shopping today with Bella and saw this perfect moment that I truly connected with. This is the face of true love. I've identified with this scene many a time.

We spent the day in London for @bellakotak's birthday! Mostly spent time checking out prints at Print Space, meeting friends, and wandering through streets. I took my laptop around with me just in case anything urgent came up too! When you're a retoucher, you always have to be prepared to be on call.

Dear UK friends
Bella and I will have a tiny window in London tomorrow in between work and meetings and would like to see you. It would be between 3:30 to 6:30. If we made it happen, would you be available and interested? It would be in the Shoreditch area. Post below and let me know!
.
If you can’t make it but would be interested in a future date, post below as well and let me know you’re interested for future dates. 🙂

Thank you so much to @_emilyteague for this amazing portrait of @bellakotak and I. She captured this in under a minute. We spent some time in Oxford yesterday with friends and I totally love what she captured! We all hung out over the last two days and it's been wonderful. She's going to be visiting Norway next week and I'll get to see her there too! What a fun world.

Here's our little retouching hang out going on tonight with @bellakotak, @_emilyteague, and I!
.
As you can see, we really know how to party!
.
Emily has been traveling from Ghana to England to Spain and Portugal. Be sure to follow her work for her amazing travel portraits in the near future!

I can't believe I got to meet @lokcheung and Warren at the Photography Show in the UK! I've been following them for years since the Digital REV days. Thanks for dealing with me fangirling and being cool about it 😂.

Seriously, be sure to follow his videos on YouTube!

As a part of the Capture One contest from my previous post, I'll be sharing some of my favorite pieces every few days! This first one was done by Neil Snape @neilsnapeshots! He has such a great balance of colors and truly love how rich it is.

I'm such a workaholic that everytime I go out, I feel like I'm getting behind. Do any of feel the same?
.
Because of which, I make sure everytime I escape for a bit, it's worth it. I've been exploring Oxford with @bellakotak and the night looks really magical here! We spent the day shopping and seeing the Harry Potter looking sites.
