San Francisco City Hall Weddings and Elopements.

San Francisco City Hall is one of my favorite places to photograph. I remember the first time I walked into the Majestic San Francisco City Hall I was in Aww. It reminded me of being back in Europe. Here are some things to think about when planning your wedding or elopement for San Francisco City Hall. Wedding Ceremonies at City Hall in San Francisco are done Monday-Friday 830 am-5pm. The best time to photograph a wedding for the best possible wedding or engagement photos are done early in the morning around 830 am. There is no one on the famous steps at the San Francisco case.

The busiest day to for weddings at the San Francisco city hall is on Friday's, there is a tight schedule, the slowest days are Wednesday or Thursdays.

If your goal is to have your wedding photos with the least amount of people in the background of your pictures, it is better to get married in the morning or late afternoon. The best time to have your photographs taken at San Francisco City hall is after 4 pm during the week.

Two reservations required. One to obtain your marriage license and another one for your actual ceremony.

Being voted best wedding photographer in San Francisco by Shutterfly was quite the honor. I was voted by the editors of and its because of the creative and dramatic images from the San Francisco City Hall. So if you are searching for the best San Francisco City hall photographer then you have come to the right place.
