One of the great things about taking pictures at San Francisco City Hall is the beautiful architecture. The french designed this building in the Beaux-Arts style which includes repeating lines, arched windows and symmetry. This symmetry is what make it such a fun place to do wedding photography. In the photo above you can see that we placed the subjects in front of 3 columns and lights. This gives the photo great depth and dimension. This couple was fantastic to photograph and loved the architecture.
So in our opinion, the best wedding photographers currently photographing at city hall understand that Architecture is important. Taking it a step further, we feel that building some of the symmetry into the wedding photos makes sense from a technical standpoint. Not all of the photos we take show the architecture because we are also aware that close up photos are important to the bride and groom too. We provide our couples a nice mix of both, but ask them ahead of time what their preferences are. We want to make sure they receive the best photography possible and are happy with the results!
