Everyone likes the San Francisco City Hall entrance/exit image. It is definitely the iconic wedding photo that we have to take at each and every wedding we photograph at this historic building. The reason it is so important is because in this one picture you see the whole story of the day. The bride and groom are featured prominently in the photo and it is obvious where they are. The "City Hall" sign makes this obvious. Sometimes I think that our couples want that City Hall sign photo more than any other picture we take throughout the day. This, despite the fact that the building offers so much architecture and beauty. With the grand staircase, the rotunda, and the mayor's balcony, there are so many great backgrounds to take advantage of once we start our tour. Fortunately, there is always time for all of these important pictures.
The best San Francisco City Hall wedding photographers will make sure that couples receive every type of photo they desire including a wide variety of backgrounds and poses. We always save this exit photo for last because it requires leaving the building and going back through security. As a wedding photographer we have to go through a different entry point to get through security so it makes sense to save this photo for last and then we say goodbye to our couple. Some couples get eager to do this particular photo during the session so we normally have to explain why it is best to wait a bit. I also see this picture as representing a new beginning for the newlyweds. They have just been married and are now embarking on their new journey in life. I feel like this photo says all of that and more.
Of course in some cases, our photoshoot does not end with the image. If the couple opted for our very popular San Francisco photo tour or any of our other tour packages, the fun has just begun!
