I am not just your San Francisco City Hall Wedding Photographer, I am also your wedding planner, City Hall guide, and your support person! I can be as much or little involved on your wedding day. Up to you, but just know I am here for you. 

CONGRATULATIONS on your upcoming wedding! I am so excited for you. Seriously. I get so so so excited on your wedding day like it’s my chance to relive my own wedding day.

However long you want me there for on your wedding day, I will be sure to take pictures of your special day where you can keep the memories of your wedding in San Francisco F O R E V E R.

San Francisco Elopement and City hall Photographer

You will get sneak peeks of your photos within 2-3 days of your wedding so you can share your news right away! Rest of your photos delivered within 2 weeks.

You keep all the edited photos - I edit all the non-blurry, super awkward (I keep some fun-awkward ones in!) photos and send them to you! 

You will receive a questionnaire upon booking so I get to know exactly what you are looking for in your wedding photos, so we can prepare to have the photos you want to remember of your special day. 

"Emily was a true professional and made every effort to make sure our special day was just that and Emily definitely captured the emotion of the day. Photos were top class and the follow through and after sales was exactly as promised."

What do you imagine your city hall wedding photos to be like? Or even your wedding day - did you want to end your day on the beach with a sunset and champagne and cake? Let's do it! You want to pretend like I'm not even there and you just want all candid shots of your wedding day? I know all the places to hide in City Hall. (I won't be that creepy, but I am totally ok being the "fly on the wall" photographer for you!) 

About Me ~ San Francisco City Hall Wedding Photographer

Photographing for couples getting married at San Francisco’s City Hall is absolutely one of my favorites! I honestly wished that I got married there, and it’s such a special occasion every time. As much as I am there (I am there 1-6 times a week!), every couple has a different story, and I love to learn about them, and bring their personality out in the photographs.

It's your big day, and I am here for it! 

read more fun facts about me here!

Who you are...


Have some “smile at the camera” portraits of you and your VIPs but many un-posed candid moments of you two in love, having fun, and enjoying your big day.

You want a “butterfly” photographer that might gently suggest things to do (can you look at each other?) but not adjust every position ("please move your elbow 10 degrees", etc.)  

You want lots of photos – even if they are technically not perfect, because it’s part of your memory of your big day

Want to have photos that you can pass down to generations to come and someday have your kids say “wow, my parents’ wedding was so much fun!”

Easy going, and love to have fun! 

Whether you want me there for just about an hour after your ceremony ($475), or you want me there from start-to-finish ($675), I will love to capture your important day at this gorgeous location.

Add a photo shoot at an iconic San Francisco location ~ $475

City Hall is gorgeous, but this will be a perfect addition, especially if you are traveling from outside of San Francisco! I am a long time resident of San Francisco, and as you can see in my portfolio page, I shoot at so many locations in San Francisco! If you are not sure where, I have a questionnaire I can send you to figure out the best spots for you.

Did you want a beach with the Golden Gate Bridge? I know all 10 beaches in San Francisco really well, and here is the breakdown so you know which beach to choose!

This is ideal if you want an outfit change or location change for your San Francisco photo shoot! You want the beach and Palace of Fine Arts combo? I love it! I seriously have so many options of locations.

Add photo shoots in additional locations ~ starting at $475

Some of my favorite combinations are:

• Ferry Building/Pier 7/California Street Cable Cars (these cable cars are usually stopped, so the best chance of taking photos with them)
• Russian Hill/City Skyline/Cable Cars passing by followed by ice cream!
• Ghirardelli Square + Aquatic Park Beach (you can see the Golden Gate Bridge in the far distance on a clear day)
• Painted Ladies (Alamo Square) and Grand View Park (360 views of the city on a clear day)
Lands End (Ocean views, views of the bridge, pretty trees)
Marshall's Beach (Can't be beaten if you want the bridge and beach combo)
Palace of Fine Arts and Crissy Field (nice combo of architecture and beach/GGB)
Lover's Lane (beautiful trees) and Crissy Field (beach and bridge)
