SF Bay Area Wedding Photography Galleries
One of the most important things to look for when viewing our SF Bay Area wedding photography galleries is the type of portfolio that is posted. Is it a compilation gallery of the photographer's best work or does it properly show a number of pictures from only 1 wedding or event. In my opinion, a gallery that shows you the wedding photographers "greatest hits" from the past 10 years tells you very little about what you might expect to receive if you book a wedding date with this professional.
Unless you can see how a photographer captures one complete wedding, it will be difficult to understand how they will capture yours. Just about any professional Wedding Photographer in the San Francisco Bay Area can get 1 great shot per wedding. Is it luck? Perhaps not, but what IS clear is that seeing up to 20 images from one single wedding gives you a much better idea of how your final images and wedding album will look.

Posing Techniques and Wedding Photography Style
What kind of posing techniques do the photographer's utilize and how good are they at choosing backgrounds? Do they understand photographic lighting or do the images look "flashy"? These questions are much easier answered when looking at an entire wedding portfolio of one marriage. Seeing a full weddings also gives you more confidence that your Bay Area wedding photographer can produce multiple great shots and not just 1 or 2 "lucky" shots.
We have arranged our own wedding galleries to reflect one whole wedding per entry. There are a few exceptions, but for the most part this is how our portfolio samples are arranged. The same goes for portrait portfolios, ideally you would like to see a cross section of work with many different poses and backgrounds. Again, play close attention to the lighting techniques, especially indoors. You should NEVER be able to tell that the wedding photographer used a flash to light a scene.
What to Look for in our SF Bay Area Portfolio Galleries

- Lighting and Dimension (depth)

Our Bay Area Wedding Photography Galleries
We have carefully compiled this extensive list of of wedding portfolios from recent weddings. We feel that they represent a nice cross section of the San Francisco bay area. In addition, we have also tried to include a nice diversity of cultural weddings photographed including Indian, Greek and Asian. Many more are also represented and coveted. We have also included a few San Francisco city hall galleries since that is one of our specialties.
In addition to our wedding portfolios we have also included Portrait photography including Family, Engagements and High School Seniors. We are often asked why our portfolios don't include more Candid shots. We do include them and you will find them scattered throughout our galleries. However, we try to make our online wedding galleries representative of the types of photos our clients choose for their albums. The truth is, everyone says they want tons of candid images, but when it comes down to picking photos, most want the family shots and formal wedding portraits. Of course a few fun shots and emotional images round out the collection and always should. Candid photos are very important to help tell the story of the day!
We try to keep our Galleries close to the type of photos a Bride and Groom would choose for their wedding album. We also want to show the diversity present in the San Francisco Bay Area. So much to choose from in this Northern California region. We have kept our prices affordable so all of our potential clients can consider working with us. We also offer SF City Hall Wedding Photography coverage. San Francisco City Hall civil ceremonies are an inexpensive way to get married but still maintains the elegance of a formal wedding. This historic old building has tons of charm and beautiful architecture. We tried to capture that in our wedding photography with a strong emphasis in the beautiful backgrounds throughout San Francisco City Hall.
