SF City Hall Elopement Package Details
The City Hall Elopement Wedding Photography Package is our base package for full coverage photography at San Francisco City Hall. We suggest this package for couples who are eloping and don't have guests or family accompanying them. We provide you with 1 hour of photographic coverage, including check-in, ceremony, and then our exciting photo tour around the City Hall building. We can usually take you to at least 3 of city hall's 4 floors in this time period and we can decide which ones to focus on together.
We always allow our clients plenty of input in selecting their favorite city hall backgrounds to focus on. However, if you prefer to leave it up to us, that's fine too! Just please remember that this package is reserved for eloping couples only. If you have guests, there just is not enough time to provide you with the City Hall Pictures you deserve and have viewed on this website.
We have discovered over time that San Francisco city hall marriages with invited guests take much longer to photograph. The reasons for this are 2-fold. The first reason is that it takes time to capture family photos after the ceremony and also pictures with your friends. Undoubtedly, your family will want to congratulate you, advise you, and help throughout the day. We love and encourage this and are thrilled to capture it on film. However, it does take more time with these additional factors. The elopement package really is designed for people with no guests. If you have guests, you will want to interact with them instead of the wedding photographers taking you away for pictures. We recommend the Preferred Package in those cases. With this package, the second the ceremony is through, we can whisk you away and start the photo tour. We have recently discounted the price of the Elopement package to $595!
Wedding Photography with ALL of the Images!
As with every package, you receive ALL of the images we take at your city hall wedding with full reproduction rights. We also provide you with a very nice password secured photo viewing website. You can use this site to view the photos or to share them with friends and family. All clients have the option of receiving their full resolution jpeg files by either Dropbox or a shipped USB drive. We have recently added the option to directly download your images from your own secure viewing website. This is much more convenient and takes less time. You can also use this site to select your photos for the optional wedding album that is described in detail below.
San Francisco City Hall Wedding Album Option
We offer you the option to order a custom made professional city hall wedding album. The cost of the base album is an affordable $440 and you choose the photos and we do the design.

As an added bonus, all 40 of your selected images will include a second round of editing in Photoshop and this will include removing distracting background objects and tourists if needed. We can also do some amount of custom Photoshop work depending upon your needs. This includes personal enhancement retouching. You also get to keep all of the edited and retouched wedding image files.
