I can never get enough of sweet thank you emails the very week of the wedding! I get all faklempt.
“Adi, Cat… We, as well as our families and friends, wanted to share how much we enjoyed your company on Saturday night! … We got so many compliments about you guys throughout the evening.
We’ll definitely recommend you to friends and family in LA and in SF (as well as NYC and DC). Please feel free to use us as a reference, if needed.”
and, then, another one after the Facebook teasers!!
“Thanks for posting a few photos from our wedding. They look AMAZING! We’ve shown them to friends and family and they can’t stop complimenting your work.”
love, Dara & Matt” (from San Francisco!)

Oye!! These two are such sweethearts and we truly LOVED being a part of their day.
Many thanks to rockstar wedding planner extraordinaire, Mary Sushinski, for making their day perfection. Love you, Mar!

I remember not long ago receiving this lovely email from the bride-to-be after her engagement session with Adi:
Hi Cat, Just wanted to let you guys at Next Exit know that Mark and I had so much fun at our engagement shoot this week at the Santa Monica Pier. Anyone that knows me will tell you that I am such a nervous person. Whether it’s taking a exam, starting a new school year with my students, or going to a doctors appointment, I always hate the experience because I get so nervous. But the engagement session was a breeze. Adi relaxed both of us and made Mark and I feel like we had known him for years. We both felt comfortable and the hour seemed to fly by. We are both looking forward to the wedding and feel so much more comfortable now that we know for sure we hired the perfect photographer for us. Can’t wait to see how the pictures turned out!

After receiving that email, we were over the moon!
Well, the results are in, and the couple were true rock stars on their wedding day at the Four Seasons Westlake Village.
Their wedding was so stunningly decorated by Laurel Szeto (wait until you see the entire ballroom draped with fabric!) and our good friends at Hidden Garden made the exquisite tablescape beyond imagination.

Alice and Tango had a gorgeous beach wedding at the Huntington Hyatt in Huntington Beach, CA. This is definitely one of my favorite venues in the area. So much so that I referred her to the site when she was having issues with the one that she had previously booked.
We always do the happy dance when we get to shoot a weekday wedding and this was no exception. It was a simple and elegant luncheon. The couple and their friends and family were really so wonderful to work with.
