Renee Whiting Photography-Santa Cruz, CA Photographer » Santa Cruz, CA Newborn and Child Photographer

My Niece, the Bride!

I am so thankful that I was asked to take a few “getting ready” photos for my niece on her wedding day. SO THANKFUL, because, I ended up sick and sadly missed the entire wedding. I never saw her in her wedding gown:(

I love their LOVE STORY! You see, I’ve known the groom since he was in elementary school. In fact to go back further, I went to school with his Aunt. SC really is a small town, except for when it came to these two meeting each other. It wasn’t until recently that they met, fell in love and tied the knot! Ryan, welcome to the family!

Me getting sick is the absolute perfect reason as to why you should never hire a wedding photographer that does not have a second or even third shooter with them! I felt fine in the morning, but by the beginning of the ceremony, well, I won’t go into details…… It is also the absolute perfect reason that I do not shoot weddings, too much pressure!

Anyways, I loved taking a few “getting ready” shots at the house before the left to the venue and met up with the “hired” photographer. You can see some of her photos here: whatshannisaw

Here’s a few of Ally getting ready:
