There are many approaches to successful wedding photography, but the key factor is almost always the lighting. Professional lighting can turn an ordinary wedding photo into a dramatic one with impact. We think that our professional lighting equipment is a major factor in the success in our business. We are one of the few professional San Francisco city hall wedding photographers that bring in a full array of lighting equipment. We don't just use a simple flash on our camera, we utilize remote controlled off-camera lighting. This provides something called dimensional lighting on the main subjects, which creates a silhouette if you set your camera the right way.
We spend a lot of time speaking about the advantages of celebrating your nuptials with a Civil Ceremony at the San Francisco town hall. Why is this? Its not that we don't enjoy big full scale weddings, because we do. However, couples spend so much money and planning time to put on a big wedding that many times there is sort of an empty feeling when it is all done. The other issue is that the day goes by so fast and the schedule can very tight. Often times, you barely even have enough time for wedding photography. Not so with San Francisco city hall weddings. Ample time for photography is built right into our packages. It is not unusual to find yourself obtaining 4 times the amount of photography time with a city hall wedding as compared to weekend celebrations. This is because you eliminate all of the events that happen on a wedding day and just focus on getting married. No Cake Cutting or Bouquet tossing or any of the other traditional activities associated with large scale weddings. What if you still want these fun traditions? No problem, have your reception on a different day and invite all your family and friends. Who says that the wedding reception has to be on the same day as the ceremony?
