Receive ALL of your Digital Image Files

When comparing our prices and packages to other San Francisco city hall wedding photographers, be sure they are offering full legal access to ALL of the digital image files and not limiting how many photos you are able to keep. Our digital image files are Full Resolution, fully edited, and are not water marked. All packages include full reproduction rights. This includes the rights to share your pictures on Social Media and Websites. It also gives you the legal right to make your own prints or wedding album from our full resolution images. There are no hidden charges or surprises with any of our packages. Some other SF city hall photographers only allow you to download a predetermined and limited number of image files. I recently saw a city hall photographer who only provides their clients with 25 images! We have NO LIMITATIONS! You receive all of the image files we take at the wedding (as long as they turned out). Click the link to see what makes our packages so affordable. Remember, true affordability is not just reflected in lower prices, it's more about what you receive for what you pay! Even though we are not the most inexpensive picture taker, we feel that we provide our clients with tremendous value for their dollar. Insist on keeping ALL of the photos from your wedding! Does your wedding photographer have a better idea than you do which photos you would prefer to keep? Doubtful! The above packages are for week-days only. Weekend pricing will be a bit higher, email us for details if you have a Saturday San Francisco city hall wedding. We have done quite a few and have the insurance requirements needed by the City Hall Events department. NOTE: We do NOT include Raw Files and they are not available to our clients.

Special Engagement and Wedding Photography Package

We recently added a new package to our many offerings. We call it our City Hall PLUS Engagement package. This affordable package includes 1.5 hours of city hall coverage combined with a separate day engagement portrait session. The engagement session can take place anywhere in San Francisco and includes up to 1 hour of photographic coverage with 2 locations (if they are not too far apart.) Engagement sessions will normally be done with more casual clothing and a much looser environment. We like to keep the session fun and will do a lot less posing and encourage more interactive behavior during the engagement shoot. Listed below are some example of the types of pictures we like to create for a typical San Francisco engagement portrait session:

  • Casual walking shots, couple hand-in-hand. Laughing, kissing and just strolling along!
  • Park Bench interaction - the couple just sits and talks. They are encouraged to be playful if they want.
  • Light shoving matches where the couple playfully push each other and laugh. We get some great ones!
  • Piggy back rides or other types of lifting by the groom (or the bride, LOL). Why not?
  • Walking barefoot on the beach and ignoring the camera, couples looks at each other or ahead.
  • Street photography in downtown San Francisco or other busy area. We just follow you around.
  • Stopping for a drink at a local Restaurant or bar in the City (can we have one too?) Just kidding.
  • This can even be done at city hall, even though it may be a bit redundant
  • Jumping shots or running on the beach. Especially Baker Beach!

Flexible SF City Hall Wedding Photography Pricing

We have listed our most popular week-day packages, but many of our clients request a custom San Francisco city hall Package. We can provide you with any level of coverage you need, including packages with Wedding Reception coverage or an optional Wedding Album. We are happy to respond to your custom price quote request. So if you do not see the right package for you on our price list, just ask us for something different. Just let us know the level of coverage you want (How many hours, locations, wedding album options, etc.) We will respond back to you quickly with a price and package to fit your individual needs. One very popular custom package falls right between our Golden Gate Package and our San Francisco Package. We sometimes call it our Golden Gate PLUS package and it provides you with 2 locations after San Francisco city hall and the cost is $1,095. Total coverage time is right around 3.25 hours. We can provide you with other options similar to this one. San Francisco City Hall also offers weekend ceremonies, please email us for our special weekend pricing. Wedding albums can be added to any package, see below for details. We know that weddings, (even the city hall variety) can be expensive and we are here to help. Just let us know what we can do to make the financial part of this more affordable and easier to pay.

All wedding couples must check in before their city hall ceremony occurs

Optional Wedding Albums

We proudly offer one of the most beautiful professional albums in the Wedding Photography industry. Our custom made "Epoca" San Francisco City Hall wedding albums are designed by us with photos chosen by you! Your standard 26-page Flush Mount Panoramic album will be 8X11 inches in size and contain 40 images. You may also choose the beautiful full length cover photo that will adorn this amazing book. Don't put your romantic wedding images on a forgotten hard drive or USB somewhere! Display your memories on your coffee table with this gorgeous wedding album. The price is $440 and includes everything listed above except shipping costs to you. Other sizes and price levels are available, just ask! This book is INCLUDED in the "Storybook Album" and the "Ultimate Romance" package listed on this page (see above). Each of these packages include the same album but with a few more photos. We have also recently created another package that includes this beautiful wedding album. We call it the "City Hall Premium Album" package. It comes with this book for the cost of $1,095. This package is basically our City Hall PLUS package with an album included. You save $40 by ordering this book in advance to go along with your package. For more information about our Premium Album package, please contact us.

The Best Reasons to Order a City Hall Wedding Album

Yes, you can make your own album with our images, but will you? Will it be this high quality? These are the realistic questions you need to ask yourself when making the decision to purchase an album. I can honestly say that every one of my clients has been thrilled to receive this classic professional wedding album that is made in Italy. Many more have told us that they fully intended to make their own wedding album, but never got around to it. This is very common with brides and grooms because things become very busy after marriage! Purchasing homes, having kids and other distractions relegate making your own album to the back burner. Let us handle the whole thing for you from start to finish. We have had many city hall couples come back to us years after their wedding asking us to do an album for them. They obviously were never able to get around to it. We will handle the whole thing for you and prepare it for your approval. We do the design and send you a proof via a PDF file. You will have the opportunity to check the design and make changes if needed. We will not send your album to print until you give it your final approval. Order this book while the excitement about your wedding is still fresh in your minds. We will walk you through the easy steps of ordering and paying. One last great reason to order an album is that we let you have all of the 40 retouched album image files to keep.

Wedding Image Delivery Methods

You can request your San Francisco City Hall wedding image files in many different formats. We can "Dropbox" the images to you via File Transfer. We also offer Direct Download from your private website and this is included with every city hall photography package. This seems to be the current preferred way for our clients to receive their wedding images. It is convenient, fast and requires no purchased software. Yes, this private viewing site allows your family and friends the opportunity to check out your beautiful San Francisco city hall wedding photographs. Prints can also be ordered by credit card. Note: If you request a USB drive and you live in California we are required to collect applicable sales tax. All other digital transfer methods do not require that we collect tax. This is another good reason to receive your images via direct download. Note: Images directly downloaded are the same resolution but slightly compressed. We have seen no adverse effects from this but let us know and we can always supply you with a non-compressed image for that big enlargement you want to make! However, we have made 16X20 with the compressed file sizes and they turn out just fine. We never stop servicing our San Francisco city hall clients.

Romantic ceremony twist, the newlywed couple is tethered together for life

City Hall Delivery Deadlines

We are very prompt when it comes to your image preparation and editing. Your photos will be fully edited and ready to view within 3 weeks from your wedding date. Our standard editing includes, cropping, color correction and exposure correction. Photoshop work and other types of image enhancements are available for an extra cost. We will frequently provide you some limited image enhancements on your proofs if they can be accomplished easily. This includes people removal and taking out some of the more obvious exit signs. Once you are ready, your Full Resolution Image files will be available to directly download from your viewing site. We can also send by Dropbox if you prefer. As mentioned previously, California residents will need to pay sales tax for a USB drive according to State law. Out of State couples do not have to pay Sales Tax on any of our products including Wedding Albums. Wedding Album orders generally take 3 weeks once finalized and ordered. The product must be shipped to your state to avoid sales tax in California.

Package Payment Options

We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover credit cards via PayPal. You do NOT need to have a Paypal account to use a credit card. We also accept cash, check, Paypal, Zelle or Venmo. A deposit of $350 is required to hold your wedding date for most packages. Larger packages may require a deposit of up to $500. If you decide to book, we will send you a contract with all of your payment and package details. Your final payment is due 2 weeks after your wedding date for the balance of your package. Tax is only charged to California State clients who want a USB Drive or include a wedding album in their package. No tax needs to be collected for out of state clients or anyone receiving their image files by Direct Download or Dropbox. One reminder about clients who prefer to pay by cash. All CASH (currency) payments must be made in person. No exceptions. We can often meet you at city hall to receive cash payments for your convenience. We will also change your payment plan to accommodate the in-person payment.

Special Photography Discounts

Ask us about discount programs. We offer special city hall wedding photography pricing for Veterans and active Military personnel. In addition, certain times of the year may include special offers and programs like Valentine's Day or Christmas. We will often discount certain city hall busy days with multiple weddings. Just ask for potential discounts and we will let you know if there are any current programs being offered.
