Bride and Groom at SF City Hall with Photo Tour
We offer our SF City Hall wedding couples a number of options for their photographic coverage. One of our more popular and exciting packages includes a San Francisco photo tour following the City Hall civil ceremony. We let the bride and groom choose their favorite spots in the city and then provide them with transportation as we explore San Francisco together while capturing photos!
If you prefer to provide your own transportation to travel through the city, that is fine too. Another option for getting to each of the San Francisco destinations is to take Uber. We will be happy to pay for your first one-way trip on Uber and meet you or ride with you.
Different Options for San Francisco Photography Tour
Logistically we like to try to ride with our couple if possible on the way to the SF photo destinations. It saves time at each location and cuts down on the stress of finding each other. If you prefer to have some of your guests or family join us on the San Francisco photo tour, that's okay too. Just realize that it will take some time away from the bride and groom. We know that many of our couples really want to focus on family photography and we're fine with doing that, so feel free to bring them to all of our destinations if that's what you prefer. After we are done with the San Francisco photo tour the bride and groom can take their own Uber back to their home or hotel. If its convenient, we may be able to give you a drive in that direction.
San Francisco Photography Experience
This particular couple chose the Palace of Fine Arts, The Golden Gate Bridge and Ghirardelli Square as their 3 tour San Francisco destinations. We started at The Palace and took them completely around the facility. In the back of the building we took photos of them walking hand-in-hand and then posing with some of the amazing columns that adorn this historic site. We then ventured to the front of the building across the pond to capture the iconic photo that virtually everyone wants. We made sure to include some shots that show the fountain also.
Some of the architecture here will remind of you San Francisco City Hall, but with a difference. If you love French inspired building design then both of these venues will make you very happy. To be honest, we could easily spend over an hour at the Palace of Fine Arts taking memorable wedding pictures. However, to keep the photo tour going we try to spend about 30 minutes at each location. We are also flexible and this can change based on the bride and groom's needs. We will always try to provide couples with more of what they want, even if it means altering our travel schedule.
Crissy Fields - Great Golden Gate Bridge View
After we completed the Palace of Fine Arts visit, we went to Crissy Fields to get some nice Golden Gate Bridge pictures. The weather was perfect and the skies were clear, allowing us to make a beautiful photo with the bridge behind. We really love Crissy Fields as a location for great views of the bridge. There are number of different angles available and on a foggy day, you can get close.
We ended the tour with a romantic and fun walk around Ghirardelli Square and even the took the couple into the Famous Buena Vista Cafe for an Irish Coffee! It was our treat! We want this photo tour to be about more than just San Francisco wedding photography, we want our couples to have a fun experience while checking out the city. We accomplish this by not rushing from location to location with the sole goal of taking as many pictures as possible. We take our time and let our couple stop and smell the roses. This allows the newlyweds to have a memorable day and not just a wedding photography session. From the start of your San Francisco city hall wedding experience to the end, we will make it a fun filled day with lots of great images created.
