I’m really sad that I won’t get to shoot Nicole and Josh’s wedding. They had already hired a wedding photographer by the time they found me to shoot their e-pics and there was no turning back. You know how it goes”¦ I’m so honored that they double dipped with Next Exit! They are one of the nicest couples EVER and I had such a fun afternoon shooting them at the Getty Center in Los Angeles, despite the fact that we “almost” got kicked out by security. Don’t despair; Cat can get you out of any jam. (especially when she talks about herself in the 3rd person)

  • Christa - Beautiful!

    (Don’t they know you there by now??) 🙂

Spending the afternoon at the Los Angeles Zoo with Jill and Daniel was such a blast! They are such sweethearts!
We even got to stay an hour past closing time”¦that’s when the real fun began. All the animals were let out of their cages and we all sang and danced to Disney tunes. 😉
We are so excited to shoot their wedding this July at Rancho Las Lomas!

  • Sue Colson - You two look so happy together! And Jill, you look so beautiful! I wish you both much happiness! Marriage is a wonderful journey, I hope you both grow with the experience…..

  • angel swanson - gorgeous pics! i love her colorful dress; it really pops in these photos.

  • Vickie - Really nice Jill, you both look very happy!

Ella came in for her first birthday photo shoot. And, she ate some cake.
Make sure to sign up for your “baby’s first year” photo pacakge which includes a next exit birthday cake smash.
Or, you can just come in for the one session. Either way, your munchkin will have the time of their life.
You just can’t go wrong.

before the cake arrived…

such a lady…

  • Nicole - Mommy - Thanks Cath for this amazing shoot. She loved the cake!

  • Heather & Mike - Aaaaaaaaaaaaah! These baby photos kill me!

  • Belinda - What gorgeous pictures!!! Happy Birthday Ella!!!

  • BJK - adorable

Joyce and Brian warmed up like butter on toast. At first, their shyness was just like most, but with just a few minutes of practice they were posing like they were long time naturals. I can’t explain how it happens, it just works that way. That’s why it is so much better to have that “breaking in” period at the engagement session instead of on the wedding day. I can’t wait to shoot these new naturals on their wedding day this October at the Glendale Hilton.

  • Bunsoy - mahn… i dont know why im posting now… but… i… love…it… can wait till the wedding photos are done… COME ON!!!! WHERE ARE THE WEDDING PICTURES!!! IM GETTING ALL TINGLY WAITING FOR’M

Before I tell you all about this wedding, I should mention that the person who found me online, searching blindly through the vast web for the perfect wedding photographer for her daughter, was none other than Melissa’s mom in far away Eastern Canada! Thanks, Mom, I owe you! 😉 I’m hoping that all of the gorgeous bridesmaids will now bring me across the border to shoot their weddings, because there had to be something in the water in the tiny town that they grew up in, cause I want some of it!
We started off the day at the Grafton Hotel and then headed over to the couple’s suite at the Standard. We even crashed the Sky Bar (until we got kicked out). We hit the House of Blues and Pink Dot for some killer fashion magazine style wedding photography on the gritty streets of Hollywood. We then limoed to Topanga State Beach for a quick and casual wedding. I was on the sand about 3 feet away from the couple for the entire ceremony because all of the guests were crowded around the chuppah to get the best view. It was amazing. I couldn’t figure out if I was getting splashed by all the flowing tears around me or the mist in the air.
Then, back to the Sunset Strip and the Hollywood Hyatt for an amazing dinner reception at The Restaurant. This was an intimate wedding of the closest of friends and family and I was truly honored to be a part of their day.
Evan can now stop emailing me every day to find out the status of his wedding pics, right? 🙂
Make sure to check out their e-pics if you haven’t already seen them!

  • Blair & Tracy Korschun - Awesome wedding and great pictures. Here’s to seeing Evan and Melissa many many times in the future with many more great pictures to come of the happy new couple.

Melissa and Ian are such a perfect pair. Ian is a 1st Lieutenant Officer in the United States Army and Melissa will be flying over the Pacific to join her new hubbie in Hawaii! The beautiful wedding ceremony was at Our Lady of Perpetual Help followed by a rockin’ reception at the Long Beach Hyatt Regency.
Ian will be shipping off to Iraq later this year and we send our support and prayers to him and all of our troops stationed overseas.
