Katja and Martin: San Francisco City Hall Wedding

Katja and Martin San Francisco City Hall Wedding Photography (8)

I’m kicking off my return from a recent around the world trip with a beautiful City Hall wedding. I never get tired of shooting here. The lighting is soft, the architecture is timeless and there’s always so much energy as a number of wedding parties wait around for their ceremony. I met Katja and Martin on the steps of City Hall along with their beautiful little girl, Juli, before heading to the Rotunda for the ceremony. Usually City Hall weddings are smaller affairs witness by just close friends or family.... Read The Rest →

Anna and Jason: San Francisco City Hall Wedding

Top San Francisco City Hall Wedding Photographer (5)

The first time I shot at City Hall, I was completely shocked by how quick the ceremony was – under 3 minutes. From a photographer’s perspective, that’s not a lot of margin for error and that’s what I absolutely love about shooting here. No matter how many times you do it, that 3 minute drill will always keep you on your feet and definitely sharpens your ability to capture fleeting moments. I met Jason and Anna at a previous wedding and was very excited when they asked if I would... Read The Rest →

Sven and Tove: San Francisco City Hall Wedding

San Francisco City Hall Wedding Photography (3)

I met Sven and Tove approximately 15 minutes before their ceremony walking through City Hall. The immediate reaction from the couple was one of extreme relief — that their photographer who they’ve corresponded mostly with via email back in Sweden, actually showed up to shoot their wedding. As it turned out, we were just waiting for each other at opposite entrances to City Hall. I reassured them that I in fact was a real photographer and that they didn’t travel all this way from Sweden to be married without someone... Read The Rest →

Clare and Jason: SF City Hall Wedding

San Francisco City Hall Wedding Photography Portraits (36)

A lot of people say they love San Francisco, but every so often you get a stronger confirmation that you live in an awesome city. Of all the places where a couple can fly to for a wedding, Clare and Jason chose to come to SF to get married at City Hall. And why not. The building is gorgeous, the restaurant scene is a foodie’s paradise, and the weather is…well, the weather is unpredictable, but if you’ve saved up enough karma points for your wedding day, then it can be...
