The image above was photographed close to the South Side of City Hall with lots of window light coming in. We placed the bride and groom in a position where the light coming in through the window would add a glow to her veil and also some nice natural light. One of the smart reasons to hire an experienced professional city hall wedding photographer is that we know all the best places to create your lasting memories. This includes locations with the least amount of other people in the way and also the best lighting conditions. This particular location at San Francisco city hall is not frequently photographed because it is NOT the Grand Staircase or 4th floor. We love to provide our clients great pictures of those 2 iconic destinations, but sometimes it is fun to offer something different to our couples in addition to the standard shots. Some of the best natural light at City Hall comes through this window and the gold railing really add to it. Funny thing is that these railings were actually installed to protect the Handicapped ramp put in years ago at San Francisco city hall. Now they make for amazing framing of our wedding photography images. In order to display the light more prevalently we had the groom bend back the bride slightly which pulls the veil away from her body and allows it to catch the light in a dramatic way. These little adjustments can make all the difference between an ordinary wedding photo and something compelling. The most experienced San Francisco city hall wedding photographers understand where to look for the light and the best backgrounds.
