Christmas is one of our favorite times of the year at San Francisco City Hall. It's also some of the most busy times! Brides and Grooms often schedule their wedding in December to take advantage of the beautiful and seasonal decorations at city hall. This is a compilation of some of our favorite photos taken at San Francisco City Hall during the holiday season. This Gallery is just a brief sampling of their Christmas Nuptials. We took over 200 photos of them throughout the building after they booked our City Hall Plus Package. This package allows the couple to include Family and Friends in their photos and still have plenty of time to visit all 4 floors of this historic building. In addition, you receive 1.5 hours of coverage.
We have been a City Hall wedding photographer for over 9 years now and have been involved in at least 500 weddings. We love what we do and encourage anyone who is getting married at city hall to book a professional photographer. Not just us, but any of the leading wedding photographers who have experience there. You will not be disappointed and the additional cost is well worth it, because you will only get married to that special someone once. The photographs are all you have left when the day is over. This particular couple is very special to us. As you will see below, we have continued to stay in touch with them and we have done 2 more shoots with one of them being at city hall and the other being at the Palace of Fine Arts.
Andrea and Noel were a great couple and we had a fun time taking their pictures. And no, Noel's name had nothing to do with them getting married at Christmas.... We asked!
We were recently honored to be contacted by Andrea and Noel a couple years after their wedding. They were so happy with the results from their city hall wedding photography shoot, that they decided to have us also photography their family portrait. Guess where they wanted the portrait session? You guessed it! San Francisco city hall was their choice and they wanted to do it again at Christmas to get the tree and also incorporate their baby. They were quite happy with the results and it showed Toni and I what a truly great place City Hall can be for Family Portrait photography! I will be adding a gallery soon for their family photos so you can see what a great time we had with this wonderful couple. We have now photographed Engagement sessions, weddings and family portraits here!
Another year passed by and Andrea and Noel asked us to do another Family Portrait, this time at the Palace of Fine Arts! We were so surprised about how much their son how grown. Of course he was a little harder to handle now that he was mobile! In that situation sometimes it can better to just go with the action. In other words, you have young boy who wants to be constantly moving and you are trying to make him still. Not a winning combination, so we just worked with him and tried different things. We were very happy with the results as were Andrea and Noel. It is definitely great to have wedding photos of a civil ceremony turn into future portrait sessions and a long lasting relationship with the family.
