Customization of Your Package is Key

The ability to customize your wedding coverage is a key factor in keeping your wedding photography low-cost. The good news is that we are a full service wedding photographer, which means we offer optional wedding albums, engagement sessions, prints and wall mounted portraits. Any of these items can be included in your custom discount package or added on later as an option. This negotiable wedding package structure helps provide our clients exactly what they want at a price they can afford. I have also included this excellent article on how to save money on your wedding photographer. This article has some great advice and money saving tips.

We service the East Bay, North Bay and South Bay and will travel throughout Northern California with no extra charge. We have extensive experience in Walnut Creek, Concord, Danville and the San Ramon Valley corridor. As mentioned above, we love photographing weddings in the Pleasanton and Livermore wine countries. We have also covered many weddings in the Napa and Sonoma wine countries.

Free Wedding Venue Site Visits in Northern California!

We will also be happy to join you on a venue site visit to share our thoughts and ideas to make your marriage experience perfect. We feel like the best San Francisco Bay Area wedding photographers should not charge for site visits and we never do! If we somehow have not photographed a wedding at your chosen venue, we are happy to check it out. We offer this service at no additional cost to you. We have extensive experience at many Bay Area wedding venues, including the Livermore Valley Wine Country. Contra Costa County, Alameda County and San Mateo County are also places we have provided extensive yet affordable wedding photography over the years. We do not charge for travel to any Northern California wedding venue!

Discount Bay Area Wedding Photographer with Many Cultures

To be a San Francisco Bay Area wedding photographer means that you are constantly exposed to a very diverse client base. We love the experience we have had with so many different cultures and religions. This experience has allowed us to work with couples from many cultures, including Catholic, Filipino, Greek, Jewish, and Asian to name a few! Many of these ceremonies require previous knowledge of the customs of each religion in order to make sure important photos are not missed during the ceremony. We can provide you with all this experience and still offer great discounts.

Proper camera positioning could be vital in some of these ceremonies to make sure we do not miss an important moment. We are always ready with our cameras no matter what occurs, but it does help to have some prior knowledge of the process. With the diverse clientele that is present in the San Francisco Bay Area, it is vital to have experience in these areas while keeping the prices reasonable.

San Francisco City Hall Wedding Photography Specialty

One of our specialties at Dubnoff Wedding Photography is San Francisco city hall weddings. Yes, San Francisco city hall is an amazing place to have your wedding photographed. A professional wedding photographer can escort you to any of the 4 floors (preferably all of them!) and capture some amazing images at bargain pricing. Please check out our page that provide details on all of our San Francisco city hall prices and packages for wedding photography.
Other photographic attributes of this amazing building include huge windows that let in natural light to make your photos even more memorable. There are a number of San Francisco City Hall Wedding Photographers who understand this and will do an excellent job for you. Before choosing one, be sure to check out their web pages to make sure they have lots of examples of photography in the interior of the building. It takes some experience to capture the beauty here without being fooled by the lighting. The building is laced with natural frames for great photo composition, which makes it the perfect place for you to hire a professional. We also cover your weddings at other City Halls throughout Northern California. Example of some of these other civil ceremony locations include: San Ramon, Alameda, Martinez, Marin, Santa Clara, San Mateo, and Sonoma to name a few.

Save Money With a SF City Hall Wedding

A great way to save money on your wedding is to have it at San Francisco city hall. The cost for a civil ceremony is a very cheap $103. Your marriage license will only cost $120. City Hall offers an elegant wedding venue with old world charm for pennies on the dollar. This allows you to spend money on other important things like your honeymoon! Of course, we encourage you to also hire a reasonably priced professional wedding photographer to capture all of this beauty. Don't trust your precious memories to a friend or relative, hire a pro!
More importantly, the most experienced city hall wedding photographers understand that the Grand Staircase is not the only place to obtain great images in the building. We will take you there, but also to the many other great places available for beautiful photos. Each of the 4 floors offer something different in terms of unique wedding pictures. Our City Hall Main Menu will lead you to SF City Hall discount pricing, packages, galleries and helpful information about how to get married there.

General Thoughts on Wedding Photography in Northern California

I wanted to share some general thoughts about photographing weddings in the Norther California area. I have been one of the leading Bay Area wedding photographers for over 20 years and feel that this is a premier region of the country to have your wedding. I say this because the weather here is so beautiful and predictable but also there are so many amazing places and venues available to a bride and groom. I have only recently made the decision to offer my wedding photography services at lower prices to help serve the community.

If you go through this website, you will find many examples of full Weddings that we photographed at some of these Northern California venues. This also includes weddings that were photographed specifically in the city of San Francisco, but also Concord, Walnut Creek, San Ramon, Berkeley, Oakland, Danville, Pleasanton, Livermore to name a few. In fact, another specialty of ours is Livermore Winery weddings. We have photographed dozens of weddings in the Livermore and Pleasanton wine country area. Our economical pricing and packages are designed to allow our clients to customize them to fit their needs and budget. We also offer special discounts including Military, Cash, and Off-Season.

Advantages of SF Bay Area Wedding Venues

  • Predictable weather 8 months per year
  • Beautiful and affordable wedding venues with many options
  • Huge selection of some of the best Wedding Vendors in the Country
  • Transportation convenience for you and your guests since this is a major hub
  • Less Expensive choices for the budget conscious

Wine Country Weddings in Napa, Sonoma, and Livermore

We have a page dedicated to these Wine Country weddings so feel free to click the link above for more information and a list of all of the wineries we have photographed weddings at. You can view some recent weddings by checking out our Gallery Pages from our main menu. Some of our favorite winery venues include Wente Vineyards, Ruby Hill, Garre, Del Valle, Murrieta's Well, and the Palm Event Center. We will take you and your new spouse out into the vineyards for great wedding pictures. Many of these inexpensive winery venues will allow the newlyweds to head out deep into the vineyard around sunset for some amazing photos.

All weddings will have 2 professional photographers present to serve you and your guests. I always shoot each wedding personally assisted by one of my exceptional photographers. I use the same assistant wedding photographers that have been on our team for many years. I never use outside photography contractors like so many others do. Would you hire a Temp Agency to photograph your Northern California wedding? We never would!
