Bonnie and Ivan are getting married at the beautiful Island Hotel in Newport Beach this summer. Bonnie is a wedding planner and Ivan is an up and coming wedding photographer! (no pressure!) So, of course, we were so honored when they chose Next Exit as their “own” wedding professionals. 😉 Adi spent a perfect morning with these two in Downtown L.A.…I’m sure you’ll recognize the spots… Union Station and Disney Hall, to name a few.
We love shooting winter family portraits! The light is soft and the air is crisp. Cathy and Mike, their 3-year-old son Eric, and baby-to-be-still-roasting-in-the-oven, were all superstars for Adi’s camera. We’re really looking forward to shooting the little one when he/she(?) pops any day now!
How cute are Shawna and John!! They are getting married late this summer at the fabulous Wayfarer’s Chapel followed by a reception at their brand new home in Lomita.
From what Adi tells me, the three of them got up to all sorts of trouble dodging security during their engagement session. How very Next Exit! Can’t wait till the wedding, guys!
A baby boy’s bris is one of the most important rites in the Jewish religion. I had the honor of sharing this profoundly moving ceremony with Baby Ziv and his wonderful family at Temple Beth Am in Beverly Hills. Taking place on the 8th day following birth, the ceremony is not only where the baby receives his name, but it is also when the ritual circumcision is performed, beginning a connection with over 5000 years of religious tradition.
Adi shot this amazing family portrait session in the Hollywood Hills just before the holidays (hence the bathtub photo image they used for their New Year’s card!).
