You guys are great!!!

I just wanted to let you know that you guys are great!!! I witnessed the interaction of you two at my uncle Armando's wedding this past September. And even though my boyfriend and I are not at that stage yet... I hope to one day have you guys taking pictures & ultimately memories at our wedding.
I liked the fact that you two were shooting away, taking advantage of all the shots without being obtrusive to the wedding couple. Just observing what you guys have done and reading more about the service and FAQ's on the website, makes me so excited that I decided to write this email.
If my wedding was already here, I would book you guys already! But until then. Good luck in your business.

Our Anniversary :)

Today is our 9th wedding anniversary! We can't believe how fast it went by...

We had a nice lunch at Duke's in Malibu. Eddie ordered the fried calamari appetizer which we both loved. Very, very tender, and not the least bit rubbery or chewy. Next, Eddie had the huge plate you see underneath, which is the Mahi Mahi sandwich. According to Julia, the Mahi Mahi was pretty good; not the least bit dry or overcooked, and the criss cut fries were perfectly seasoned. Eddie, ever the critic, thought it was ok, but was not terribly impressed.
Julia had the open faced Crab and Shrimp sandwiches, which she thought was really tasty. What a shocker! :) We both had passion fruit iced tea while watching the ocean and huge pelicans doing straight dives into the water trying to get fish.
We both thought we were too full for dessert, but Eddie said they had a very popular dessert called the Hula Pie, so we ordered one. We are glad we ordered just one! It was huge! Not to mention rich and sweet and gooey and delicious! It was what looked like one quarter of a pie. Vanilla ice cream on top of a chocolate cookie crust, with a layer of fudge, then smothered in whipped cream and sprinkled with chopped macadamia nuts. Yum!
After lunch Eddie drove to Bartels' where we finally got what we said we were going to get two years ago: Harley Davidson boots for both of us! Julia was thrilled. Eddie picked out a really "bad to the bone" looking pair, and Julia initially picked out a similar one. But both the sales girl and Eddie thought another less clunky one looked better, so she ended up going with that one.
Next we went to stroll around the Santa Monica Pier, and finally rode on the ferris wheel, which we had watched so many times but never had the time to go. Then we ended with a stroll at the Third Street Promenade, where Julia got to spend some time browsing through one of her favorite stores, Sur La Table.
Then we came home and Eddie, still full from lunch, watched as Julia ate nachos and chocolate cake. Fun day! :)
