Welcome! We are Ally & Andre, a Photo and Film team based out of Southern California and (basically anywhere fun, cool or adventurous you want to get married!) We have the best job in the world, a job that lets us travel, take photos, meet awesome couples, and make new friends everyday.

We enjoy traveling and camping in our free time, which helps us come across some of the most beautiful places. If you are looking for a fun and adventurous time, lets start planning...we got your back!!
Hello beautiful people! Ally here! I was a preschool teacher and a Behavior Interventionist for a total of 9 years before I took on photography full-time. I'm the owner of Alyssia Renee Boudoir and recently a new owner of Ally Renee Photo. My favorite go-to beverage is a nice chilled glass of Sangria or Champagne. I love to wear headbands, love a good bold lip and always start my mornings off listening to Kacey Musgraves. I'm a huge fan! When I'm not working, you can find me outdoors, camping, hiking and snacking.
Howdy!...I'm Andre. Photography became a part of my life back in 2015, when I bought my very first camera. With many hours and days of learning, with the help of YouTube, I decided to turn my favorite hobby into a career. My favorite things in life are coffee, listening to comedy podcasts, Dodgers baseball, and finding the best camp spots to cook outdoors with friends and family.
We swear Ruffles is part human. She is the smartest/sassiest dog that we have ever known. She enjoys joining us on road trips and exploring new camp spots. Her favorite food is boiled chicken, sweet potatoes and pup patties from In-n-Out. Her favorite toy is a Kirkland Signature Wine plush toy from Costco. Most of the day she is sleeping or growling at us when she is ready for a walk or treat. When it comes to choosing treats, she tells us which treat she wants by tapping the bag with her paw. She's always finding new ways to bring joy to our lives!
It all started when a family member asked us to shoot her wedding back in 2016. We had one beginner camera, a lens and absolutely no experience shooting any weddings. We all start somewhere, right? But hey...we did it and thought we did a pretty good job for not knowing anything! Since then, every wedding and session has helped us learn and fall more in love with what we do. We are motivated to help every couple re-live their best days through our photos and films that will last a lifetime.
Before being a part of our first wedding, photography started for us on our travels and roadtrips together. Chasing sunsets and waking up early for sunrise hikes were and still are our favorite memories to capture. We didn't own the fanciest gear then, but being able to look back at those times in our lives is something we will always cherish. Capturing memories is why we love our job so much! Hearing that our couples look at their gallery and it instantaneously takes them back to that very special moment in their lives is absolutely priceless.
A good time!! No...really. We try our best to make your day feel like YOUR day. We don't enjoy overwhelming our couples with with unnatural posing, we try our best to guide you through the movement of what makes a great natural photo. We believe that letting you and your partner be in the moment creates more of those special natural candids. Every wedding and couple is unique and different in their own ways and learning about you and your partner helps us to understand your love for each other. Your wedding day/session represents you and your partner and we are here to capture it for you in every way we can!
