Radha and Brian’s wedding was flawless. My dear friend Michael Willms referred us this incredible client, and boy, did we work hard to land the gig. The couple? Adorable. Saddlerock Ranch? Amazing. The décor? Beyond.
Every part of this day was perfection and we were so honored to be a part of the team.
It started with a traditional Hindu Indian Baraat and Mandap. The drapery across the lawn was exquisite. Then, a traditional western ceremony and a party that lasted into the morning hours.
The In and Out Truck showed up for late night snacks. Thankfully, I was there to take partake in a Double Double. xoxo

It was a beautiful day for Becky and Dave’s destination wedding in Sunny SoCal. A little wind never hurt anybody. (Especially a bride with a stunning updoo)
99% of the guests were from out of state, and only the closest of friends and family made the cut. (dontcha love intimate weddings?)
What made it so special for Adi and I to have made Becky’s list of vendors is that she is a very established and talented wedding photographer in Chicago! (No pressure)

  • Rachel Tatem - What a beautiful wedding! Great job capturing the joy of the bride, I love what I imagine to be her laugh in some of these shots

The bride went to Brentwood High, Northwestern University, got a Masters at UCLA and is now off to get an MBA, location TBD.
The groom went to Campbell Hall, U of A and Le Cordon Bleu French Culinary Institute. And then became a personal trainer.
Nobody could ever accuse Bryn and Brian of being undereducated, but they can however, call these two a perfect pair.
Adi and I really enjoyed shooting their exquisite wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills.
Two of Next Exit Photography’s former grooms were part of Brian’s bridal party team, so it was a pleasure getting to hang out with four of our most favorite clients!!

The Historic Greystone Mansion and Park in Beverly Hills has always been one of our favorite locations to shoot at, with sprawling landscapes and secret hideaways, perfect for that next best shot.
Watching Cristina and Paul on the dance floor was like watching rockstars at a stadium concert. They knew every word to every song and more or less danced a routine to every Pop Rock number Ian played. It was so cute.
There was Mexican CocaCola everywhere. It was a favorite of the B&G. And who could forget those delicious brisket sliders. I’m drooling just thinking about them.
Such a special couple, so kind and sweet.
Adored DJ Ian Gotler from Red Shoe LA. Great taste in music, no attitude
Oh and we loved working with Event Planner Teri Kinne and her team of coordination experts. They were so on top of everything.

  • Lauren @ ELD - Her dress is SO FUN! Love it! 🙂

  • Wedding in Manuel Antonio - You and your husband looking very awesome. Your marriage dress is so beautiful. I love the little white dress, you look fabulous!

These two both went to Beverly Hills High. Then, they found themselves in similar career paths, both attending law school. They were so meant to be and fell so in love.
It was a wonderful day and night at the stunning property at the Intercontinental Hotel in Century City.
Just before the ceremony, Adi and the Rabbi started chatting it up, and discovered that they went to the same elementary school!
That evening, Adi downloaded the images from the wedding, and I said, hey, the makeup artist’s kids are in music class with our son!
It is a small world after all.
Congrats on a perfect day, you two. After all that work, you surely deserved it!
