Casa Del Mar Wedding Photography

Emily and Jesse | Casa Del Mar Wedding Photography

Hotel Casa del Mar Wedding Photography in its purest form. Next Exit Photography’s love affair with Casa del Mar is evident with every photograph in this series of wedding images. Of course, it always helps to have warm and adorable clients like Emily and Jesse, who flew in from Brooklyn, New York to celebrate their wedding with family and friends from around the globe. It was a very elegant and classy affair from start to finish. We especially love how this candle lit, fall themed November wedding included a huge assortment of orange and red flowers. Flawlessly coordinated by Casa Del Mar wedding planner expert, Terri Castillo, from Bellisimo Events, the day was perfect from start to finish.
Next Exit Photography is honored to be featured photographers on the recommended vendor list at both Casa Del Mar and Shutters on the Beach.  The staff at both hotels excel at organizing the perfect wedding day and every detail that they implement.  We love shooting Santa Monica beach weddings with the iconic Santa Monica Pier in the background and where the weather is near perfect every day of the year. The few rain drops before the ceremony never bothered this calm bride and groom! A little tip for those getting married on Santa Monica Beach: Don’t forget to make time in your wedding day schedule to take full advantage of photography on the sand. It takes about 10 minutes to actually get down to the water in each direction!

Rancho del Cielo Wedding Photography Malibu California

Creating Rancho del Cielo wedding photography has always been an absolute pleasure for us. It has incredible vistas and beautiful gardens and the staff there have always been the most welcoming and attentive crew. Every time we photograph there (and we shoot there a lot), we find new and amazing places to shoot. Have I mentioned the light? The summer light that bathes the Malibu mountain top is always exquisite and helps us create the most amazing photographs and portraits!  But enough about Rancho del Cielo; what about Valerie and Derek?  There was certainly something  special about this couple. It had to do with the way that light touched them and lit up their eyes when they looked at one another. The endless smiles on their faces and those of their family and friends were infectious. I think especially unique for a wedding was the food that as served at their wedding. You won’t see many weddings where spare ribs and tacos are cooked up for the hungry guests. It was an honor to be a part of this magical day at Rancho del Cielo. Creating wedding Photography in Malibu, which we feel is like a second Heaven in the sky is always a pleasure. Congratulations to Valerie and Derek on their beautiful day. Your wedding was phenomenal and we wish you long, healthy and happy lives together! xoxo

Ojai Valley Inn Wedding Photography | Lauren and Noah

Ojai Valley Inn Wedding Photography | Lauren and Noah

Getting hired as wedding photographers for an Ojai Valley Inn Wedding is like winning the lottery. Aside from being one of our favorite Southern California family vacation getaway spots for our own little brood, it is also one of the most beautiful venues to take pictures. Its Ojai Valley’s mountain vistas, rolling hills, eucalyptus groves, Spanish architecture and herb gardens, all so perfectly picturesque, it makes shooting wedding photography an absolute pleasure. Oh, and we love, love, love the light. Magical! When you add that all together, it is no wonder that Lauren and Noah’s Ojai Valley Inn wedding was so spectacular. As a side note, Lauren and Noah live in New York City and their wedding took place the weekend of Hurricane Sandy. It was a blessing that so many of their east coast friends and relatives were able to help celebrate the wedding.
Thank you to Lindsey at Magnolia Event Design who coordinated a fantastic wedding, Tenly Erin Young Floral Design, longtime family friends Rabbi Steven Carr Reuben and Cantor Chayim Frenkel and our BFF Tara at Makeup Therapy. A special thanks to Sarah Pugh and the wonderful ladies who manage events at the Ojai Valley Inn. We LOVE YOU! Your amazing efficiency and attention to detail is always superb.

Carondelet House Wedding Photography

Carondelet House Wedding Photography | Tamara and Aaron

There is definitely something about getting married at Carondelet House. Perhaps it’s the unbelievably delectable food created specifically for Carondelet House by the catering staff at Tres LA (who always surprise us with their imaginative cuisine) or maybe it’s the rustic old LA feeling you get from the first moment you walk into the foyer. There is no escaping the charm of this hidden downtown Los Angeles wedding and event venue gem complete with its exposed beamed ceiling and antique Spanish tiling. It is easy to create amazing photographic wedding memories and such a perfect venue.
Tamara and Aaron are one of those couples we can’t help but love. Such wonderful people, they truly made our own team feel like part of their family!

As always, we appreciated the incredible efforts and creativity of Joanna Chong from J.Soiree wedding planners. Primal Flower sis an exquisite job with all of the white rose and hydrangea centerpieces with tiny accents of green. DJ Crash worked his magic on the dance floor. We also love photographing weddings at First Congregational Church of Los Angeles. You can see how wonderfully it photographs.

In the lead up to Jordan and Ilana’s huge Orthodox Jewish Wedding at Vibiana, we had the honor of being their photographer a few months earlier at their lovely engagement party.

Faye Kellerman and Jonathan Kellerman are two of the world’s most famous authors! Not to mention two of the most adoring parents I have met.;)Adi and I were very excited to shoot this exquisite wedding at the Vibiana in Downtown Los Angeles.

A note from the bride + groom: Next Exit was the first and only photography team we met. We loved their photos from the minute we came across their blog right after we got engaged and were so thrilled to have them capture our wedding. It was such a blast spending the wedding day with them. Our family and friends mean so much to us, and Next Exit made an effort to snap all of our special and fun moments with them. Thank you for the awesome photos and for just being awesome in general:):)Love, Jordan And Ilana
