If you have read this far, you probably heard us talk quite a bit about our affordable prices and packages. You might also be wondering how do we do it. The answer is simple. We do not push pre-determined and rigid packages on our clients. We understand that every San Francisco Bay Area wedding is unique and different. This is why we provide perspective clients with our Quote Request Form. This online request allows you to TELL US what you want in your wedding photography package and also lets us know your budget constraints. This helps keep our coverage flexible and custom built for your wedding needs.
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 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!

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.
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.
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!
