Here are 2 of the most beautiful brides you will ever see. How fun to have double beauty at one single wedding. As many know by now, San Francisco City Hall became world famous as one of the first places to allow Gay Weddings. At the time, they were actually Illegal by state law, but the mayor of San Francisco decided to move forward with them anyway. There was huge rush for people in the LGBT community to obtain legal marriages. City Hall became a wild place in those days. Well now, here it is, a decade later and gay marriage is common place and socially accepted. This gorgeous couple was a delight to work with and could not have been more fun. Easily one of our favorite weddings ever! They were multi-cultural, fun to be around and same-sex. They were determined to have fun on their wedding day and they definitely achieved that goal. I wish I could show pictures from this entire shoot, because there was such a diversity in the poses we did and how they interacted. At one moment we would be getting some very romantic shots and the next they were playfully giving each other a hard time and joking around with us too.
After the city hall photo tour, we typically take our brides to the City Hall sign for a nice ending shot. However, in this case our brides had other ideas. Since they were both from different countries (United States and Venezuela), they wanted to hold the flags of their countries and pose for a nice picture in front of the building. It made a for a very nice shot and was a perfect ending to a great city hall wedding! We have been photographing Same-Sex weddings for over 8 years and have been involved with over 100 celebrations. Recently, in 2021 there seems to be far less same-sex marriages, at least from what we see. We are hoping to be involved in some more soon. Looking to 2022 to hopefully get back to these great weddings.
