Simone and Ryan were born to be Next Exit clients. It’s okay to say that, right? We all got along swimmingly throughout the entire wedding planning process. We promised to postpone our inevitable friendship until after their honeymoon. We’re ready now! Their engagement session a few months ago was one of our all time faves. We couldn’t wait until their wedding day at the Skirball Center. It was gorgeous! It helps that Ryan is an event lighting designer for The Lighter Side so the ballroom was lit up in all its glory. If you call, ask for him directly so that he can take good care of you. Simone had a helpful hand from wedding planner and Next Exit pal, Alexandra Doudian, from Enchanted Events & Design, who is always calm, professional and organized. Rabbi Steven Carr Rueben from Kehillat Israel Temple in Pacific Palisades (my old hood) performed a beautiful ceremony under the chuppah exquisitely designed by Elizabeth Bailey at Barrington Flowers. Wedding photography and photojournalism in Los Angeles at it’s best. Thanks, S&R.

  • cpsocal - Stunning!!

  • Lucretia - Breath taking as always! I only wish I could have worked with you both. I wish you both well. =)

Living in an urban area you can sometimes forget how beautiful nature is. The greatest thing about living in Los Angeles is that around every corner you find some secret display of nature and beauty, the beach, the mountains, the desert. Brian and Kate are getting married at such an oasis, Temescal Gateway Park in Pacific Palisades this June. After reviewing several engagement portrait spot favorites, we decided to shoot at their wedding location to be! We had a great time walking around their unbelievably tranquil site, chatting about the big day and trying to figure out what musical the community center kids were rehearsing. BTW, it was Les Miserables. Should we attend?

Sandra and Oscar are soooo nice! We had such a blast hanging out with them in Downtown Los Angeles shooting their engagements pictures. We started off in a corner of downtown that was slightly sketch by accident. Okay. Super sketch. But, we had a good time wading through sketchville together. Did I mention how sketchy it was? Insert wink. We then moved on to the beautiful Los Angeles Music Center/Walt Disney Concert Hall that houses the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Then on to Olvera Street where we found the oldest house in all of Los Angeles and avoided the deliciously fresh churros. Finally, S&O treated us to drinks and apps during Happy Hour at McCormick and Schmick’s. Yummmmm. Adi will be shooting their wedding in July at The Castaway in Burbank.

  • Sandra - Did we say sketchy?! ha! Wow! they turned out great! Woohoo we finally made it to Cat and Adi’s blog!

  • Rosie - My favorite is the first one- very modelish! All of them are so cool!

Our friends, Laura and Martine, asked us to shoot “A Day in the Life” of their 2-year-old daughter, Jensyn. We spent most of the day and into the evening snapping away at Jensyn so that we could collect enough images to design an heirloom magazine style album. Adi is looking forward to designing this super cool book that incorporates all of the images from the photo shoot.  From morning pancakes to afternoon soccer to evening reading just before bed… Jensyn loved modeling for the camera (and playing with it.) A future photographer, perhaps? Thank you L&M for inviting us into your home and letting us experience your amazing daughter for a day!

How exciting!!! Two of our images were published in the Calendar Section (Style & Culture, Social Climes) of the Los Angeles Times on Sunday, May 21, 2006! Thank you to Melissa Nitti at the P.R. firm, Schake Marowits, for making sure that Next Exit Photography got a byline for the photos! Adi and I were the official photographers for the charity event, fresh stART, a local charity that supports Los Angeles artists and benefits therapeutic art programs for at-risk youth.
Co-Chairs Cris McCall and Sally Horchow McCauley were both featured in the two pics as well as a few celebs that we snapped at event at the Santa Monica Art Studios last month.

Joyce and James put together a fabulous wedding at the St. Pius Catholic Church in Buena Park and the Radisson in Newport Beach. With the help of the ultra-organized wedding planner, Lisa Simpson from Wedding Celebrations in Orange County, and their team of experienced vendors, the wedding day went off without a hitch! Joyce and James are the 5th of six couples who know each other and have used Next Exit Photography as their wedding photographers. What an honor! We love being a part of this family of friends and look forward to every time we get to work with them! We really enjoyed working again with the videographers at Lightbox Digital and also with the girls at Design Visage who did the bridal hair and make-up. The bouquets and centerpieces were stunning from Karen’s Flowers.

  • aida - I love Joyce and James! It was the most fun I’ve ever had at a wedding. Can’t wait to see the rest of the photos!
