You all remember Danielle and Matt from the bubbles engagement photo session? Well, their wedding photographs are so awesome, it was hard to narrow it down to these few. (well, truth be told, it’s always a challenge for us”¦he he) Danielle’s twin sister wrote us like the DAY after the wedding to see when the pics would be up. How cute. She did give one heck of a MOH speech. D&M are fun, energetic, friendly and yes, photogenic. Both lawyers. Can you believe?
Gorgeous make-up was provided by Therese Clark. The staff at the Westlake Village Inn was just a dream to work with, especially the coordinator, Jeannie Reed. Thanks for everything, Jeannie! Blossom Floral in West Los Angeles, was hired only a few days before the wedding in a pinch and decorated the chuppah beautifully. The DJ, Tim Benter from DJs to Go, rocked the house all night long.

I am the proud auntsin (cousin, but more like aunty) of this beautiful girl, born June 29, 2006 at 3:30 p.m. at the Santa Monica Hospital. She is 7 lbs 5 oz and 20 inches tall.
Nicole (the mamala) is my first cousin and was the maid of honor at our wedding. I am so excited for Nicole and Robin (her hub) and my entire family to have such a precious addition to our clan, but I am even more excited that I will be able to take endless baby photos of this perfect thing! You will be seeing lots of photos of Ella Lilli in the coming years”¦so stay tuned!
Next Exit Clients: I am availble for baby portraits at the hospital or at your place after you bring your munchkin home~!


Tiffany was a bridesmaid at Teresa and Aaron’s wedding (Next Exit Alums, we miss you T) at the Portofino Hotel and Yacht Club in Redondo Beach two and a half years ago. We were so excited when she booked us to be her wedding photographers at the Wayfarer’s Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes and the Dalmation American Hall in San Pedro. Things got sizzling hot when Tiffany permitted me to shoot her wedding day boudoir session in the hotel room after she finished up her make-up. We kicked everybody out of the room (including Adi!) and I got to snap away. Too bad those ones won’t make it to the blog this time!!
It was such a pleasure spending the day with Tiffany and Michael. They are so adorable together! Just as adorable is Tiffany’s son, who entertained us with his Bob Marley imitations and professional-ish break dancing.T&M are both of Croatian descent and had some true authentic details to celebrate their heritage. The walking band had everybody smiling and singing a tune! Congrats, you two!

  • Teresa Kent - Hrvatska! and Greetings from The Buckeye State,

    Cat and Adi, you’ve outdone yourselves once again! Tiffany and Mike’s wedding pictures are beautifully stunning and really capture the fun energy and vibe of the day. See what you’ve done -you’re making me miss California!

    It was a blast hanging out with you two again and it’s a priviledge to be Next Exit Alums (thanks for the shout-out!)

    Mike and Tiff, thanks for throwing the party of the year and for all the fun memories. Tiffany, you’re a Super Hot Bride. Teal ladies, don’t let those shoes go to waste! I’m wearing mine right now because there’s no place like home …



Sarah and Brad started dating way back in Jr. High School and are now engaged to be married! Currently, this adorable pair are attending Grad School and planning their August wedding at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu. How do they do it!?
Adi and I had such a blast photographing S&B’s engagement photographs in Santa Monica. They were so much fun together! They said they were nervous at first, but it didn’t show a bit. We ended off the evening chowing down at one of our favorite spots just down the road from the Next Exit pad”¦Tito’s Taco’s!!! yummmm.

  • Sarah - Yay, thanks Cat for putting them up. You and Adi are so talented and we are really looking forward to spending some more time with Adi on our wedding day. By the way, I was dreaming about those tacos for nights after.

Good Luck!!! Lyndi Dawn

  • Chris Phillips and Helen Covey - Brad and Sarah,
    I am your 2nd cousin, Chris and Helen is your Great Aunt. My daughter, Kim is here also and her kids. We would all like to wish you both much love and happiness. You are a beautiful couple and Sarah you could be Rachel’s daughter! You look remarkably like her!! Welcome to the family, we hope we can meet you in person someday soon.
    Love, Aunt Helen, Chris and Kim and families.

Spring has just ended. It’s summertime at Casa de Next Exit Photography!
We moved into our new home 3 months ago from today and we can’t believe how time has gone by!
Adi planted his tomatoes, herbs, and beans last month and they are growing like crazy every day. The avocado, pomegranate and fig trees and roses were all here when we moved in, but the rest is “a la Adi.”
Here is a collage that Adi designed of some of my garden photos from our very own backyard! If you have an idea for a photo collage, run it by us and maybe we can help you figure it out! (or, maybe we can even shoot it for you. Insert wink.)

I don’t think that there is a greater honor for a wedding photographer than to shoot a fellow wedding photographer’s actual wedding! Kim Fox is a talented Southern California wedding photographer whose work we greatly admire. Adi and I felt privileged to be a part of this magical weekend in Desert Hot Springs and Joshua Tree celebrating Kim and Jimmy’s wedding. Kim was so into her wedding photos that she put Adi and I up in the adjoining room to her honeymoon suite! All photos, all the time. There were no limits, no lists, no restrictions. Just pure photo fabulousness. In fact, we even shot her pre-wedding “boudoir” on our own bed!
An intimate affair with about 35 close friends and relatives, we took over the Beat Hotel and its nearby dessert roads and made them into our own little wedding fashion shoot location. The ceremony was “experienced” in between the mountains and the Joshua Trees. Poetry was recited, songs were sung, guitars were strummed, and then, the glass was broken under the chuppah and we all danced the horah under the setting sun. Kim is such a dear friend and she and Jimmy make a perfect set.
After the wedding was over, Kim said to me, “I get it now. I understand how a bride feels on her wedding day.”
I personally agree. My own wedding day four years ago was the happiest day of my entire life.
