When Michael contacted me 5 days before his wedding (sans wedding photographer) I thought it had to be a trick! But, actually, they had asked a friend who ended up being unable to do it and Next Exit got darn lucky!!

They are such an adorable couple and they partied like rockstars at their beautiful and intimate wedding at a sweet photography studio.
Of course, their church, St. Monica‘s is Santa Monica is one of our favorites and we LOVE to capture the stunning light streaming through those big doors.

The reception was a blast and they sang solos along with a few of their guests which was the hit of the night.

I clearly remember the day when I met April, her mom and recently married sister. I totally fell for this incredibly warm family and hoped that they would choose me to be part of their day. Flash forward to the perfectly coordinated wedding at the bride’s parents home in Westlake Village (a dream home, I might add). Dad is a contractor so of course, it was a designers dream! The couple was so happy and danced the night away with their charming bridal party. Thanks for letting me be a part of your day!

Sabrena and Casey’s wedding was magazine worthy from the start. Did you see their rockin engagement session that Adi shot? Smokin! The wedding images, too, are no less than perfection. A beautifully designed affair, a sweet and gorgeous couple and a little Next Exit magic. Poof! This is one of those weddings that was near impossible for me to edit my favorites for the blog. So many moments between the married pair and delicious details to show. And, DJing by THE Richard Blade? Oh, be still my beating heart. 😉

Thanks, S&C for making Adi and I feel like part of your family. We hope that you enjoy this sampling of your event!

P.S. We love being on the recommended vendor list at the Viceroy Hotel in Palm Spring. The catering director Tim was so good to us! Now, Vanessa has taken over and she rocks our world. This is the first wedding we shot for her and we hope these images make her as happy as they make us!
