As San Francisco wedding photographers, we never take for granted how fortunate we are to live by such a vibrant and unique city. We couldn’t have found a more perfect complement to our wedding photojournalism style than the city by the bay. Whether you’re a local Bay Area bride or a groom planning your San Francisco destination wedding, the city’s colorful characters and iconic neighborhoods provide a visually compelling context for your day. While city traffic can be frustrating at best and maddening at its rush-hour worst, as long as you give yourself twice as much time as you think you might need to pre-empt any stress, you’ll get yourself to the church on time – to coin a phrase. Our knowledge of what is possible location-wise and logistics-wise amidst the maze of foggy hills ensure you get the most out of your wedding day photography...just make sure your wedding shoes are comfortable!

With deep history, unique architecture in all directions, its romantic fog and iconic bridges, great light, parks, endless food and entertainment options, and a ubiquitous open-mindedness, San Francisco is a great place to be a wedding photographer!

We particularly love San Francisco churches for your wedding day. From the Roman-Corinthian architecture of Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral to the oldest church in the city, Mission Dolores. The Mission is actually the oldest intact building in the City of San Francisco and the Mission Cemetery is the only cemetery that remains within the City limits.

Not everyone chooses to have their San Francisco wedding ceremony at a church! Some even get hitched at their favorite restaurant or event space. For an intimate wedding space, Spruce SF is amazing. The food, wine and service is unparalleled in the industry. 

For lovers of history and architecture, the Asian Art Museum and its neighbor across the street, San Francisco City Hall offer impressive wedding photography portrait locations and the diverse crowds on nearby streets lend themselves to interesting wedding photojournalism. With our years of experience as the best wedding photographers serving the San Francisco Bay Area, we know this city well and have a long list of great alternative shooting locations for days when the iconic spots are just too busy. By the way, it’s perfect for Engagement Photo Sessions as well!
