She really rocked this wedding and we can’t wait to work with her again next month.
“I was introduced to Tracy and Kramer by past clients who were long time friends of Tracy’s. We connected at the end of May to plan their December wedding. In just six short months we planned their organic elegance wedding. When we first met they described their perfect venue as aged with character and a gorgeous structure. I immediately suggested Vibiana as its history and glamour seemed like the perfect fit.
Tracy and Kramer both work hard and when they aren’t working, they’re either traveling or enjoying great food and wine amongst each other or with friends. Keeping this in mind, I knew we had to pair them with a caterer that understood what a true foodie bride and groom would appreciate on their special day. Steve Fortunato of Room Forty was the ideal fit to assist them with a top-shelf dinner for their day. Once we selected their venue and caterer, all the additional details just flowed effortlessly.
Tracy worked with a family friend at Paper Pushers to design their amazing wedding invitations which displayed a photo of her maternal grandparents on their wedding day. This was one of my favorite details from her day.
For the design, it was important to both Tracy and Kramer to create something modern and organic but still rustic with an elegant undertone. Susan from Peony and Plum designed the most gorgeous centerpieces incorporating succulents, orchids, garden roses, scabiosa pods, seeded eucalyptus and more. They were set in beautiful wood boxes and paired with candles. They really wanted a natural look as the space itself is so gorgeous they didn’t want to compete with it but rather enhance it. The amazing lighting Amber Event Productions assisted us with really took it to another level as well.
When it came to who would document the day, it was really important to Tracy and Kramer that they selected a team that not only took amazing photos, but also focused on capturing natural candids, as this was a priority. When Cat and Adi of Next Exit Photography and Camron of New Classic Films were selected, I was elated as they both are two of my favorites to document a day.
There was a conversation during the planning process where Tracy and I discussed the day. I remember telling her at that moment that her wedding day would be warm, magical, exceedingly special, filled with love, good friends and family. Looking back, Tracy and Kramer’s day was just that and I am so honored I was able to be a part of it. ” — Alex
We were very excited when the sister (Desiree) of a former Next Exit groom (Arash) contacted us to shoot her wedding.
It’s always a huge honor to be invited to shoot a wedding, but even more so when it is our second wedding for the same family!!
The thing that I remember most about this beautiful Jewish Persian wedding (other than the fantastic couple) was the never-ending displays of food! Literally, there were like 17 different meals in a 6-hour period, all equally fabulous. Slurp!
Every now and again, Adi and I make a special connection with one of our clients, and in this case, Desiree and Dane are no exception.
You can often find the four of us out on date night exploring the culinary Mecca that is Los Angeles. (specifically AYCE Korean BBQ in K-Town!)

Alexis was a very caring, hands-on Bride. The kind of Bride who dreams about her wedding day being more than perfect in every way.
Her Groom, James, was so sweet and kind, they made a perfect team at their very perfect wedding! (It rocked.)
Liz at Shutters always makes everything so easy and beautiful. The view from the ground floor event space is so divine, watching all the beach goers stroll by…
A lovely email from the bride. “Hi Cat!…We’re so glad to have had you and Adi photograph our wedding. This was the first time many of our family members and friends had been to California to visit us and having them captured so beautifully is really special to us.”
The pleasure was all ours!
