We are so behind on blogging!! But, little by little, we’ll catch up, I promise. Here is a fabulous family portrait session photographed in the Santa Monica Mountains. We loved working with new mom again, Cris, and her family of three generations!!

Noelle and Benjamin rocked the grungy alleys of Santa Monica! You would never know it, but Noelle started out as nervous as a cat at the dog pound. 20 minutes into the shoot, she was as fierce as America’s Next Top Model.

Note to Brides to Be: Engagement sessions are not just about the pictures. They are the perfect way for you and your fiancé to loosen up and get comfortable in front of the camera and with your photographer (hopefully one from Next Exit!). It will help you prevent that breaking in time on your strapped for time wedding day. Just ask Noelle!

  • Sandra P - they look great! i love your perspective esp the one with the graffiti background, i like how you took it better than how i took them! 🙂

As you might have read here on the blog, my brother, Jeff Krantz, is an upcoming singer songwriter about to take over the world. Adi photographed him on the streets of Hollywood for his PR kit and wouldn’t ya know, the prestigious Billboard Mag decided to publish one of the killer images with a killer article all about Jeff! OMG
All of the music on our wedding and portrait websites are written by and crooned to by Jeff. Make sure to check out his myspace page to listen to new songs and the read latest info on his amazing and growing career.

  • Lynn - Wow, this is pretty awesome. Congrats to Next Exit and Cat’s brother!

We are so thrilled to be published in the current issue of the Knot Magazine with TWO full-page spreads. The first one is of the rooftop at the Oviatt Hotel from Debbie and Stuart’s wedding in Downtown Los Angeles and the second one is of Megan’s gorgeous bridesmaids in their stunning green dresses. How cool is that!!! Besides, these two brides happen to be the nicest people ever and they totally deserve this really cool honor!



  • Lynn - Congrats!

I adore Julie and Jesse (even though they went to UCLA.) Ever since shooting their engagement session a while back, I have been so looking forward to their wedding. They are super low key and their sense of humor is just my style. As this was the last wedding of the year for Next Exit in 2007, it was extra special for me that the couple was so amazing to work with in every way.
Their list of incredible vendors included:
Marina Del Rey Marriott with superb coordination by Janet Adriano
Flowers by Luna Gardens
The Wedding Band – TC and Traffic Jamm at DeBois Productions
Photobooth by Photobooth Scrapbooks
Videography by Big Picture Video
Ice Cream Sandwiches instead of cake! by Diddy Reese
Bride’s Wedding Gown by Liancarlo from Renee Strauss for the Bride
Groom’s Suit by Hugo Boss

Note to photographers: The blue sky at night shot with the couple was shot on my new D3 at 6400ISO! sha-wing!
