We recommend an early morning Ceremony (9-10AM) or after 3PM.
San Francisco City Hall is beautiful inside-out. We consider each spot there to be beautiful but The Grand Staircase and the 4th floor are the most popular.
We've seen numerous times couples brought more than 6 guests. in 99% of the cases no-one cared. However the Covid-19 pandemic will most likely cause City Hall to enforce the rules.

Yes. But keep in mind that San Francisco City Hall is so beautiful, we often spend hours there. We've once spent 4 hours with a couple from Singapore just for portraits inside the building.
From Best to Worst:
1 - Wednesday. 2 - Tuesday. 3 - Thursday. 4 - Monday. 5 - Friday.
Most of our City Hall weddings happen to be on Friday. We know how to handle the most complex situation even if things not going according to a plan. If you can avoid Friday, it will make our life easier and may improve your photography results a bit but with some patience Friday and open mind can be handled.
INCLUDED WITH SELECTED PACKAGES
Being so close to our clients on the wedding day allow us to capture many intimate moments on film. The end result can be put together in a form of a cinematic story.
Our photographers have decent experience in taking and producing videos. And since intimate weddings do not require a large scale production team, these moments are relatively easy to capture.
All our packages include high resolution files from the entire ceremony.
