I loved shooting Kelley and Leighton’s wedding at St. Andrew’s Catholic Church and Annandale Golf Club, both in Pasadena, CA. It’s always an honor to be referred to a new client by a mother of a past bride! (Thanks, Kyle!) Local wedding coordinator, Beth Stevens, was superb at handling all of the last minute details. The groovy band, by J. Sterling Productions, was a hit! The get-away Rolls Royce owned by Mel Harrison at Classy Chassis was just gorgeous! A beautiful cake was designed by the Bee’s Knees Bakery.
It was such a pleasure working with these two and their amazing families! I just adored you all!

  • Kelley - Cat, These photos are amazing – they just brought the day vividly back to me. Leighton and I had so much fun with you and our extended friends and family lavished you with compliments (and that was just for your personality – they’re going to fall over when they see your wonderful photos). I can’t even begin to show you my thanks!

  • Colleen Foley - Cat and Adi-

    Wow!!! These are wonderful! Of course, it doesn’t hurt that Kelley, Leighton, their parents and all the wedding party are stunning… Truly, you captured great moments and terrific details. I certainly enjoyed the show–so far that is and look forward to more.

Erika and Stephan had an exquisitely beautiful wedding at the Villa Del Sol D’Oro in Sierra Madre, CA. The bride’s Mori Lee gown was to die for. Flowers, linens, and rentals were designed by our buddy Kerim Albanes and the wedding videographer was Mr. Thomas Buckley (he did Adi’s sister’s wedding at Casa del Mar two years ago!) The day was perfect and both families were so awesome to work with. Congrats you two!

Rachel and John had an exquisite wedding at the Marina Del Rey Marriott. The ceremony took place on the rooftop overlooking the Marina! So beautiful. Rachel looked like a princess in her gown designed by Maggie Sotero, purchased at Pebbles Bridal. I actually went to high school with Pebble’s owner, Susie Oh. I used to tell her that she knew every single word to every song that ever played on the radio. Flash forward 15 years and there she is, the champion of the national TV show, Singing Bee!
The bride’s hair was done by Alyssa from Elements Aveda.  McCann Florist did a fabulous job designing the wedding flowers.
Congrats again to this beautiful couple. We just adore you two!

Adi and I just returned home from an amazing week in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. We were there as the destination wedding photographers at the One&Only Palmilla at the phenomenal wedding of Zarin and Ryan. Thanks again to the lovely Jolie for referring us to this unbelievable couple.
Anywho, we just wanted to give all of you Next Exit blog-o-holics an update! We received well over 100 emails full of exciting wedding and portrait inquiries, client check-ins and pre-holiday print orders. Calls and emails will be returned one by one starting tomorrow. Can’t wait to talk to all of you!!
Oh, yeah, and we promise to get back to blogging weddings asap. We’re NINE behind!!!

Michelle was a bridesmaid at Laura-Lee and Erik’s wedding (as seen in this month’s Knot Magazine!), so we were totally psyched that when she got engaged to Jeff, and she called Next Exit to shoot her engagement pictures! They are getting married in Hawaii this September on the beautiful island of Maui. Since we couldn’t get to Hawaii to shoot their epics, Manhattan Beach, CA had to suffice. Besides, that’s where they met!

  • Justine Ungaro - What a gorgeous couple!

  • elizabeth - Gorgeous! You guys look amazing and I couldn’t be happier for the two of you. Here’s to a fun year of wedding planning. xoxoxo
