It would be near impossible for Maya and Dan not to throw the perfect wedding, seeing that their attention to detail and exquisite taste would be filtered through the entire event. With the help of Lisa Gorjestani at Details Event Planning and her phenomenal planning team, this Brentwood backyard wedding should be gobbled up by the bridal magazines for sure.
There was no less than a team of officiants…3 Clergy and a Judge. (No, that’s not a beginning of a bad joke)
Rabbi Steven Carr Reuben and Cantor Chayim Frenkel from Temple Kehillat Israel in Pacific Palisades, Cantor Joseph Malovany of New York’s Fifth Avenue Synagogue as well as New York Federal Judge David Trager, all preformed the beautiful ceremony side by side.

  • Yuka photo art - Gorgeouse wedding, amazing photographs!I love how you captured emotions!

  • Casey Figlewicz - Amazing Pictures! You guys do great work!

It’s been an amazing year working with Kim and Kevin. They are such a wonderful pair, we loved shooting them throughout their whole wedding experience. Staring with their engagement at Pink Taco last summer, then the engagement session in Hermosa Beach, and of course, the magnificent wedding at the Huntington Hyatt, every moment we spent with them was full of love and laughter.
Mary Dann, Wedding & Party Coordinators, put together a superb event for the couple and their wonderful families. Every detail was planned to perfection. Mary had no less than FIVE assistants at the wedding helping to create the perfect day.

  • Red - This wedding is absolutely wonderful and the bride looked stunning. I love the bridesmaid dresses and am wondering if you could please let me know what brand they are and/or where you got them from. I am from sydney australia so would be easier to search by brand.

The love and thought that went into every moment and every detail of this wedding was clear. I mean, the bride and groom had FIVE different wedding cakes!! BTW, Dave hired Bree’s most favorite musician in the world to do a surprise set at the wedding. Unfortunately, I can’t share who the incredible artist was, but you can feel the excitement in Bree’s reaction in the photo below (you’ll know which one!) And, let’s not leave out the Next Exit Photobooth that the couple arranged with us for the wedding. One hour of fantastic fun in the confessionals. Who could ask for more?

I don’t get out to Claremont very often, or…ever, but if it were any closer I imagine that I would shoot a ton of my portrait sessions out there. Its freakin’ gorgeous!
Eva and Brinton met at the Claremont Juice Company where we started on our little engagement photo safari.
Their’s is an adorable story that involves unexpressed feelings, many many months of being “friends,” and lots and lots of juice.
But hey, those unexpressed feelings must have turned into expressed ones, cause Next Exit Photography is shooting their wedding at the amazing Rancho del Cielo in Malibu this August. It’s going to be spectacular.
Hope you got your invite. 😉
