San Francisco City Hall Wedding

In a city known for its stunning architecture, San Francisco City Hall, in my opinion, is the most gorgeous building in the City for a wedding.  The Beaux-Arts style, its soaring dome and delicious light make for an amazing background for wedding portraits.  I love that the building is open for public use.  Any given day, there are dozens of couples exchanging vows.

I wanted to do a styled wedding shoot at City Hall.  Maria (a professional model) and Bob (her real-life sweetheart), modeled for me with the assistance of a team of wedding professionals.   Maria wore a 1970’s dress loaned to us by Recaptured Vintage Bridal Couture.  I photographed on the main grand staircase and in a few other iconic locations within the building and outside at the Civic Center Plaza.  Here are some of the portraits from our day…
