Cat and I felt so honored to be a part of the amazing wedding of Aubrey and Josh. Aubrey has been a friend of ours for as long as I can remember, so it was extra special that we knew her family and many of the guests in attendance. The perfect blue sky was the backdrop for the beautiful ceremony on Topanga State Beach. You can’t pay for weather like this!!! And then, guests headed over to the Harbor House in Marina del Rey for yummy mojitos and a delicious lunch. The dancing was off the hook, especially the choreographed salsa performed by the newlyweds. And, the homemade cupcakes were so scrumptious.

But wait! There’s more!

    Thank you!

  • sally dunn - I love looking at your gorgeous pictures! It brings back memories of that special day. My favorites were the seagull, what are the chances of that happening for a photo, Josh and Aubrey by the ladder, the toast and cute little Shayna and her cupcake. We send our love and Thanks Adi and Cat for the great pictures.

  • Mel McLellan - OOOH! I like this one! Great job guys! 🙂 Hope you’re doing great!

  • Codi - Thanks for including me in your picture sharing. The pictures are fantastic and you both look so happy! Congratulations!!

We had a very busy week shooting 4 adorable munchkins at the studio.
Baby portraits are becoming very popular here at Next Exit because so many of our former clients (and their friends) are popping out babies here, there and everywhere!

Renee and Braden got married at one of our favorite locations in Southern California, the Los Angeles River Center and Gardens. It is such a beautiful and peaceful place to exchange vows and the photo opps are endless. Renee is a Hello Kitty-phile and even wore a Kitty Kimono to end off the evening! She works for the company and has been oh so generous with trademark gifts to yours truly. R&B are uber cool and their wedding details really showed off their unique personalities. Donaji from Event Professionals was a supreme event director. The highlight of the evening was when the Salinas Churro Truck arrived and served fresh hot churros for the final hours of the event. Adi and I were in churro heaven!!! Okay, okay, so I cheated on my diet. Shhhhh, don’t tell anybody. Adi only scored one piece, and he is still kicking himself about it to this day, as they are his favorite sugary treat. Anyways, it was a pleasure shooting this adorable couple all over downtown Los Angeles. It was a wedding to remember!!


More More and More…

Adi and I have been so blessed this year with amazing clients. Jill and Daniel, adorable animal lovers, had a gorgeous wedding at our favorite Orange County Silverado wedding location hot spot, Rancho Las Lomas. It doesn’t get any better than this place. The catering, yum, from Craig’s Extraordinary Catering. In Flower designed the gorgeous floral décor. Wedding coordinator, Susan MacDonald, made sure that everything ran according to schedule. We really loved working with Videographers Christine and Marc McCrudden from Independent Apple Productions. We highly recommend this adorable husband and wife team. Another huge recommendation for the band from The Platinum Groove of DMH Enterprises. Really amazing stuff!!! They rocked the house!!!

of course, there is more

  • Mark Lugenbuehl - That is one of the most beutiful set of wedding photographs I have ever seen. Jill and Daniel shine like movie stars.

  • Sue Colson - Such a beautiful couple! Georgeous pictures! Your happiness jumps right out from the photos!

  • Jill - The emotion and story captured is phenomenal. The blend of different styles captures the complexity of the day which is based simply on love. That one day is gone, but these pictures will be with us forever; we thank you for telling our story so beautifully.

  • angel swanson - GORGEOUS pictures! the bride is utterly radiant.

Jennifer and Kris were our date famous 7/7/7 couple. (yes, that tells all you blogstalkers how behind we are!) Their amazing location, in our favorite wine country hideaway (Temecula, CA), was the Harveston Lake House. So magical!! Jen and Kris are such amazing dancers! And, who knew that Kris was an inspired crooner and would surprise his new wife with a first dance song backed by the Chris Klich Quintet (who was out of this world.) Guests played croquet and frisbee on the lawn while munching on sugar free desserts and sipping from the fruit juice station. The cake topper was unforgettable and handcrafted by Thumbprint Kids. The couple scored a power paddleboat on the lake, which would have made for a fabulous ceremony exit and getaway…but the paddle boat guy somehow forgot! It’s okay, we just took the long route to get one.
Adi and I turned down almost 30 weddings for that crazy date!!! Honestly, I can’t imagine having spent it with a nicer, kinder group. And, hey, it only took them 11 years to get to it!!

And thanks for taking a super short break and cutting a rug with us on the dance floor, you’re not so bad yourselves. 🙂
