“2 Men and a Baby” at City Hall

City Hall Ceremony with Baby Watching City Hall Ceremony with their Baby Watching

I wanted to update this post from last year because I have some new photos to add to it.  I still love this first one (see above) because it is so classic! One of our favorite City Hall Weddings from last year!  We photographed the wedding of Steve and John with only 1 guest……  Their 5 month old little girl.  We met the 3 of them in the hallway directly outside of the County Clerk’s office to assist them with their Ceremony check-in.  After a brief meeting with their officiant we all headed up to the Rotunda to celebrate their marriage.  One of the most fun things about the ceremony was that the Deputy Marriage commissioner volunteered to hold the baby while John and Steve exchanged wedding rings!  This great idea helped create this classic photo that they will remember for the rest of their lives.  I just love how the baby is looking right at the ring exchange of her new dads!

Once the ceremony was completed and the marriage sealed with a kiss, we took the happy couple around the building to take some photos.  We incorporated their daughter into some of the early photos, but it wasn’t long until she had fallen asleep in her baby stroller.  We took advantage of this lucky break to get some really nice poses of the couple, taking them on a tour to many of our favorite picture spots.  We ended our shoot at the city hall sign out in front of the building.  Perfect timing as the baby woke up and joined the couple for a posed shot in front of San Francisco City Hall.
