San Francisco City Hall Wedding Photographers - Sutro Baths

Sutro Baths Wedding Photography Image

Black and white image of a city hall bride on the cliffs by San Francisco's famous Sutro Baths. We placed our bride out in the wind and waited for it to blow in the correct direction. It kind of makes the bride's veil look like a sail. This dramatic wedding photo was captured shortly after the couple celebrated their San Francisco City Hall wedding. We took the happy couple to other San Francisco locations and ended our photo tour at the Palace of Fine Arts in the Marina district. It was a beautiful day even if it was a little windy! Sutro Baths is definitely a favorite wedding photo destination for us, but you have the have sufficient time. The reason for this is that the hike going both down to the Baths and back up takes quite a bit of time. In addition, the drive out there takes a long time because it is in the farthest north region of San Francisco. I certainly believe it is well worth it, but the bride and groom need to be committed to making it work and taking the time on their wedding day. Consequently, we do not get out to Sutro too frequently. We sure love it when we do especially when we can obtain images such as these. One additional potential issue is that you have to be little careful balancing on the old concrete foundations. they can be a little narrow and some of them have a pretty big drop. So if you are afraid of heights, I would not recommend this location as part of your city hall wedding photography package.

Risky Posing at San Francisco City Hall

After discussing the above issue at Sutro Baths, I would thought I would briefly talk about wedding photography poses that are risky. We always keep in mind that our couples want to stay safe during their wedding photography shoot at city hall. Some of our poses can take some athleticism and strength. Just remember that you can always say no to any pose we suggest to you as a bride and groom. Some of these poses include the following:

  • Dance Dip Poses
  • Jumping shots
  • Twirling photos
  • Deep bend back poses
  • Running poses
  • Groom lifting bride
