Continuing from our most recent post about why to hire a Professional City Hall Wedding Photographer:
Guiding you through the Process
This is one advantage that most brides and grooms don’t think about. Yes, we know how to help you with the whole city hall wedding process. From procuring your wedding license to checking in at the County Clerk’s office and then finally actually having your ceremony. Is this kind of assistance really necessary? Probably not absolutely needed, but if you want to truly enjoy your wedding day, it makes sense to let someone else handle the complicated process of having your civil ceremony at city hall. We find that most of our couples really are at a loss of where to go and what to do on the day of their ceremony. When do you bring in the witness? Why are we checking in? Where do we get married? These are common questions we are asked when we first meet our engaged couples on the day of their wedding. Just recently, the County Clerk has 2 lines for couples to go into. Which line? Why are their 2? To make the day go smoothly, we simply guide the couple through each step and stay with them the whole time. Our couples love this and it makes their special day care free. We honestly enjoy helping out and gives us the chance to show off our knowledge of the process!
Posing the Married Couple at City Hall
While it is true that your friend or relative who is “really good with a camera” may be able to take high quality images that are in focus, chances are they will not know how to pose the couple. This is where most amateur wedding photographers fall down on the job. Not coming up with fun and unique poses and more importantly, not knowing how to make the bride look her best. Brides come in all kinds of shapes and sizes and each one of them deserves a professional city hall wedding photographer who knows how to accentuate the good parts and hide the less than perfect aspects of the bride’s look. This is not something that just anyone can do without training or experience. A professional wedding photography can take one look at the couple and know exactly how to handle the posing. Your wedding day is too important of an event to leave to chance. Don’t have Uncle Bob photograph your wedding! He won’t know the best poses or backgrounds. What about lighting? When looking through the various San Francisco city hall weddings photographers, it is easy to see the ones who know how to light the couple. So called “Natural Light Photographers” cannot capture great images in every part of city hall. It is just not possible. Some places need additional lighting. Besides, this is what photography is all about. Painting with light, so to speak.
Final Products – Wedding Albums and Prints
What happens when your San Francisco City Hall wedding is over? If you hired a professional wedding photographer, you will receive edited images within a month or less in most cases. We deliver ours to our married couples in 3 weeks. If you have your Uncle Bob photograph your wedding, when will you receive the photos? When will he get to it? Will they even be professionally edited? There are many reading this article right now thinking, big deal, we can do all of this ourselves. The truth of the matter is that statistics show that most wedding couples do absolutely nothing with their wedding digital files. Sure, they may post a few on Social Media and maybe even make a print on their home Inkjet printer. But is this really how that should be handled? We offer our couples retouched professionally processed prints and beautiful wedding albums as options. Many of our clients take advantage of this. Even those that do not are assured of receiving a finished product after their wedding. Fully edited and perfectly exposed wedding pictures! Ask Uncle Bob about his file back up system? I bet he doesn’t have one. Let us take care of all of the details and do not leave the most important day of your lives to chance. Hire a professional wedding photographer!
