Anna and Jose's wedding

Meet Anna and Jose. A very fun couple, great sports, and great sense of humor. We did this photo shoot at Wilson Park. It wasn't too hot that day, so it was perfect for a shoot at the park. And the newly built tree-house was lots of fun.
According to Anna, Jose made all the bouquets and boutonnieres. We think he did a great job! If you guys need flower arrangements, we can hook you up!

Harry's Oklahoma Style BBQ

We went to Wilson Park in Torrance today for a 2 hour photo shoot. The couple had just gotten married, and wanted some photos. So we met with them, their wedding party and their happy moms.

After the shoot, we were hungry, and decided to go to Harry's Oklahoma Style BBQ in Lomita. We had read great reviews about it online, and couldn't wait to try it. Apparently, we didn't read the reviews closely enough, so we showed up having no idea that it was a take-out only place! No matter, though. We ordered their #1 combo, which included a full rack of smoked bbq baby back ribs, 1 lb. of smoked bbq tri-tip, 2 smoked bbq half chicken brests, 1 quart of molasses baked beans, 1 pint of coleslaw, 1 pint of potato salad, and 4 dinner rolls.

We left the restaurant as Julia giggled with anticipation. It's no surprise that Julia loved the food, but even Eddie, who has a slightly harder-to-please palate, had to agree that it was very good. All the meats were tender, juicy, and cooked to smoky perfection!

If you haven't been to Harry's yet, it's easy to miss it. It's at the corner of Narbonne Avenue and 255th in Lomita. Here's the exact address: 25501 Narbonne Avenue, Lomita, CA 90717. We recommend you call ahead to order then just drop by to pick it up. That way, you don't have to sit there, like us two silly ducks. Their number is (877)HARY-BBQ. You can thank us later.

Savory Mini Tuna Danish

Julia made these tonight. She got the recipe from a website, but ended up making so many changes that it became an entirely different thing. Julia named them Savory Mini Tuna Danish. She's not particularly fond of the name, but it's the most fitting name she could think of... Eddie's not going to argue. She makes them, he eats them.!

Lori & David's Wedding

Yesterday we did Lori and David's wedding. It was a beautiful outdoor wedding, and the weather could not have cooperated more.

Here, the happy newlyweds dance to Rascal Flatts.
Congratulations, Lori and David!

New Website??

Can't believe this is happening!
Eddie is thinking about updating our website... again! Julia thinks our website looks great, but guess Eddie didn't think so...
We will keep you updated on this one... -_-

Lisa and David

Even though we have done so many engagement photo shoots, we still think every couple is so different and very interesting. We have met so many lovely people that are so much in love...
Here is another reason of we love what we do: another lovely couple, Lisa and David. Very good sports, and fun to work with.

Mylene & Marnie's Wedding

This is Mylene getting ready for her big day. The make up artist you see here did a pretty good job, in our opinion. The bride looked good, but still looked very much like herself. Not too over the top. Simple, but elegant, just like the happy couple!

The wedding was beautiful. It was aboard the Queen Mary, and there were lots of places for good photos. Like this one, overlooking the Long Beach skyline, while the couple steals a kiss.
Mylene and Marnie take a shortcut through the ship to get to their reception.

Congratulations, Mylene and Marnie!

Lily and J.C.

We met with this very nice couple today, fellow Long Beach alumni Lily and J.C., who have hired us to photograph their wedding. We met at their wedding location, which is a really nice location with a great view of the ocean. They were a little concerned it might be too dark for good photos since it's a December outdoor wedding.

We are grateful to them for pointing this out to us so that we can have a chance to think about how to deal with the situation. Most customers we meet don't have the kind of insight that this couple does, and they have made our jobs a whole lot easier by letting us know exactly what we are dealing with.

Hooray for Lily and J.C.! Yes, we know. We are lame...
