I HIGHLY recommend that you hire Next Exit to shoot your wedding, engagement shoot and any other life event you might have!!!

We interviewed or received quotes from over 10-15 photographers. This was probably one of the harder decisions we made during the whole wedding process. There was no question that once we spoke to Adi and Cat that we wanted to hire them, it was a matter of are they worth going slightly over our allotted photography budget.

YES times a million.

Did I mention we were planning this LA wedding from Chicago? Throughout the process I turned to Cat for guidance. From recommendations on certain vendors to the perfect day of timeline. She was always quick to reply and gave GREAT suggestions.

Adi, her husband was assigned to our wedding with his assistant Lee as the second photographer. We met Adi a few months before our wedding for our engagement shoot. This was such a fun day for us. We had never taken any professional pictures together so we were a bit uncomfortable in front of the camera at first. Adi did a great job easing us into things and captured some very memorable shots for us. He was super open and told us funny stories about his experience as a photographer and we enjoyed spending the afternoon with him!

Adi was great. He's stern in the sense that he get's things going and moving and people in place, but no one was ever offended or thought he wasn't nice. In fact my father-in-law came up to us during the wedding and was thoroughly impressed with how he handled all the HUGE family shots.

The finished product could not be better. He took one of my favorite pictures EVER that we plan to blow up huge as art!! He's really talented!

Looking back, their packages ARE reasonable considering their among the top wedding photographers in Los Angeles! I am SO thankful we decided to go with Next Exit and I highly recommend you do the same!

Thank you Cat and Adi, for everything!

Looking for a photographer was my husband's #1 priority. He looked at hundreds of portfolios before landing on Next Exit. From the time we first contacted them to our wedding day, they were professional, friendly and responsive. Our "teaser" images were up so quickly, and they're exactly what we expected - sharp, colorful, deliberate images. Adi & Cat have a rigor and an attention to detail that sets their photography apart from most. You can see from their work that they have an uncanny knack for capturing a moment. Next Exit are hands down our favorite vendor.

The first time we talked to Cat and Adi, we were hooked. They were so friendly and easy to communicate with. My husband and I had so many last minute changes to our contract that they handled immediately and with ease, which was a source of comfort while we rushed to put the last minute details of our wedding together! The second Adi walked into the bridal suite to take pictures he became the director of the wedding! He was a riot - energetic, confident, hilarious, and wonderful at building rapport! By the end of the night we considered him a friend and loved having him around. Seeing our pictures blew us away! They looked like they came straight out of a bridal magazine! The clarity and quality of the film as well as the composition was truly art. He captured the true emotional euphoria in some of the most precious moments of our wedding. We will always be grateful to Cat and Adi at Next Exit for their amazing work.

We knew we wanted Next Exit Photography as our wedding photographers the minute we saw their portfolio. Their pictures are beautiful, and they are best at capturing all the best moments. The entire Next Exit team is responsive and professional.

The morning of the wedding, the team showed up on time and ready to work. Normally, that would be expected, but knowing that Adi had just come back from a two week vacation overseas, I thought he might be tired or groggy. In fact, I have no idea how he had so much energy the entire day! Throughout the entire day, Adi also took the time to make sure that I was ok, asking me if I needed anything, and making sure I wasn't too overwhelmed with everything that was going on. And since the weather was quite hot that day, he also made sure to keep me in the shade as much as possible and made sure I wasn't overheated. That was unexpected, and totally sweet of him. Any pictures we wanted that day, Adi made it happen.

We cannot wait to see our wedding pictures, but having already gotten our engagement pictures back, we KNOW the photos will be amazing!! THANK YOU ADI AND THE NEXT EXIT TEAM!!!

Okay, first of all, I will be the first to admit this was the largest line item in our budget other than our food / reception dinner cost. But what is the one thing you are going to have after the "day of" your wedding? Your photographs! And my fiance' and I conducted extensive research to find the perfect photographer in all of L.A. I thought it was funny that he was so interested in helping me select this one vendor, but I am so glad we spent the time and learned about Adi and Cat, the husband and wife team that are Next Exit Photography.

Simply put, we thought they had THE BEST photos in their extensive portfolio - excellent in-focus composition (what's up with all these blurry "trendy" wedding pics lately?) while capturing the EMOTIONS, which were also very important to us. And after we met with Cat in-person, we felt her expertise as a former wedding planner and very seasoned photographer was a win-win for us. FYI, Cat was the lead photographer for our big day (she hired a second photographer to accompany her), though Adi her husband is available and does either separate weddings, or you can pay more and get them BOTH.

We opted to purchase both an engagement session and one extra hour of coverage for the wedding day as "extras," and I would spend this money again. The engagement session loosened us up and prepared us for wedding day photos, not to mention we got some AMAZING photos I was able to use for the wedding day, newspaper announcement, etc.

Another couple of bonuses for us:
- We had a rather large wedding party, a couple of divorces/remarriages with our families, and Cat somehow successfully got all of our family photos done in less than an hour prior to our ceremony. She is assertive, which was exactly what we needed to get the pics we wanted!
- We lost our natural lighting between the ceremony and reception, and Cat raced to help get us the biggest bang for our buck prior to pulling out the lighting kit (still great quality though).

Where to begin? Next Exit is amazing. I was referred to Next Exit by three separate people which said a lot to me. Cat was our photographer and from our very first meeting she was professional, charming, down-to-earth and very helpful. When I first started planning my wedding I had no idea what I was doing or what I wanted but as soon as I met Cat I knew we were in good hands. I could always depend on a prompt and helpful reply from the Next Exit staff. They proactively reached out to me to make sure they had a list of shots I wanted which was incredibly helpful during the hectic weeks leading up to the wedding. This is what you want in a partner.

The day of the wedding Cat just rocked. She helped navigate us through the schedule and provided great advice along the way. We must have gotten married on the hottest day of the year and even through the sweltering heat and a “backseat driver” or two, Cat and her assistant (I am so sorry to have forgotten his name) remained calm, cool and professional.

Of course the piece de resistance are the gorgeous, unbelievably breathtaking photos. I told Cat, the pictures are brighter, beautiful versions of all of the memories I hold so dear. I must have poured through all of the photos at least 10 times the night we got the pictures back. My husband and I don't always like taking pictures but Cat and her team made us feel comfortable and the photos are amazing. I cannot recommend Next Exit more highly. You cannot go wrong with them!

Adi and Harrison were AWESOME to work with!! We had a great time and Adi really put us at ease while still keeping everyone organized and setting up some really fun and creative shots. We spoke with Cat initially who was very professional and informative. They made a point to ask us what we wanted and worked with our budget without trying to push us to spend more. To be fair, we haven't seen our pictures yet. However, the shots that he shared off his camera were Gorgeous and we can't wait to see more! Our exprience working with Next Exit thus far has been first rate!!!
