SF Bay Area Wedding Photography Galleries
One of the most important things to look for when viewing 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 nothing 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/or wedding album will look. What kind of posing techniques do the photographer's utilize and how good at choosing backgrounds are they? Are they good with lighting or do the images look "flashy"? These questions are much easier answered when looking at an entire wedding portfolio. In addition, it gives you more confidence that you wedding photographer can produce multiple great shots and not just 1 "lucky" shot. 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.

Our 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. 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.
