4th Floor wedding at San Francisco City Hall

Today was one of those weddings when my face was hurting from smiling when I was going home. Between their fun personalities and great sense of humor these two will never be board together.

Melanie and Tim got married on a 4th Floor of the San Francisco City Hall, surrounded by their dear friends and family. I loved the two yellow roses that they brought to the wedding who were laid on an empty chairs symbolizing Melanie’s parents who were there in spirit.

We started the session with impromptu “first look”, didn’t really planned on it, but it turned into a very sweet moment between two of them.

After the ceremony and more photos, everyone went on a sightseeing trip around San Francisco in a classic trolley car. What a great way to treat your family, especially if they are from out of town?

I love meeting new couples and hearing their love story. Whether they met on a blind date, a chance encounter, or have known each other for years; each story is unique and beautiful.

Andrea and Tristan’s Love Story

Andrea and Tristan have known each other since high school, but reconnected about five years ago when they ran into each other at the gym, of all places. They had their first date soon after, and the rest is history. I met Andrea and Tristan when they pulled up in Tristan’s pickup truck, wedding attire in their bags, super excited to get married. Their wedding was at Our Lady of Montserrat Chapel at Loyola House at USF Campus.

We took their wedding photos around the campus, which has tons of beautiful architecture and amazing views of San Francisco. They were such a fun and stunning couple. Andrea wore a beautiful lace gown that she scored for around 100 dollars! She looked amazing, and the love between her and Tristan was almost tangible. They had a beautiful ceremony, followed by an outdoor cocktail reception with a view of the Golden Gate Bridge. They served delicious Mediterranean food, and had a wonderful celebration of their marriage with their closest friends and family. I loved meeting this sweet couple, hearing their story, and being a part of their special day. I know they have many happy days ahead as husband and wife, and their story together has only just begun.

San Francisco City Hall Wedding Pricing


Are you planning to have a wedding with just a few friends and family? Or maybe you are from out of town and are looking for a beautiful place to elope? San Francisco City Hall could be the perfect place for you! San Francisco City Hall offers an elegant yet affordable setting, perfect for small and big parties. The beautiful Beaux-Art style architecture of City Hall makes it a wonderful backdrop for your wedding photos. An abundance of high arched windows letting natural light pour in and white marble structures make it one of the most elegant wedding venues in San Francisco.


The most popular ceremony location at San Francisco City Hall is Rotunda located at second floor. You are allowed up to 6 guests at that location. This is a public area so there might be a chance that you will have more than one witness or photographer during your ceremony. If you wish to invite bigger group of friends and family I recommend renting 4th floor or Mayors Balcony, each one of them can accommodate up to 100 people. Their hourly rate is $1002, and you can book the space between 9am and 4pm, Monday through Friday.  City Hall staff will block the area from foot traffic, giving you and your guest some privacy. If you like you can also hire an independent officiant, musician, and bring some champagne or cupcakes ☺

The essential element of capturing the beauty of your City Hall wedding and making sure that you will look back on your photographs and treasure them for years to come is an experienced wedding photographer. Please don’t put responsibility on your mom with an iPhone or an uncle who just got a nice camera. I will be also happy to guide through City Hall wedding procedure, serve as a witness and recommend additional photo locations. To help couple’s capture the lasting memories of their special day I created this simple photography package.


San Francisco City Hall Special is a $850 investment and includes:

• Up to two hours of photography coverage

• Online Gallery (password-protected)

• Edited High Resolution Files in elegant password protected Gallery and a photo release.

Engagement Session at Borges Ranch, Walnut Creek

What a day! Its been raining on and off for the last few days, but I did not expected the weather like this….

The day started with beautiful blue sky, which turned to a rain storm with hail and back to sun.  I can photograph in rough conditions, but as I was standing on a pasture in a middle of hailing storm I was hoping the couple will cancel … I guess my clients are more adventurous than I was suspecting :)

After the second hail storm Devon and Ben arrived at Borges Ranch, and the sun came out from behind the dark clouds. We got 40 minutes of camera time before the rain came back and we had to hide in car.  This was my first time meeting these love birds so it worked out quite well, we had a chance to talk about some different photo ideas and their wedding.

The sun decided it will give us another shot so after a quick outfit change we were back to play and got some awesome photographs around the ranch.

I had in my car some cute umbrellas in case we weren’t that lucky, but I will take this sunset over anything.
