Both reservations can be made in person at the County Clerk's office (Room 168) on weekdays from 9:00 am until 3:30 pm. Or you can schedule your ceremony through their on-line reservation system and reserve your date as early as 90 days in advance. The online option is much preferred so you can avoid the lines at the County Clerks office. To obtain a reservation for your City Hall Marriage License click the link.

How to Choose the Best SF City Hall Wedding Photographers

You see articles like this throughout the internet and on most San Francisco city hall wedding photographer's websites. Many of the articles I read about this provide great advice and lengthy explanations. Sometimes I feel like it can almost be too much to digest for the average engaged couple looking for a wedding photographer. So I thought I would approach this a bit differently and just highlight what I feel are the most important factors to consider. This website offers many details and further information regarding the details listed below.

  • Carefully check the lighting on the photographers website - Is it pleasant or harsh?
  • Are the couple's poses creative and fun? Or do they just stare at the camera and smile?
  • Does the Wedding Photographer's website look professional and complete?
  • Do they provide useful information on getting married at San Francisco city hall?
  • Check carefully for online reviews on sites like Google and Yelp - How do they compare?
  • Can you find galleries on their website that show one complete wedding?
  • Experience does matter! How many San Francisco city hall weddings have they shot?
  • Do they offer optional products such as professional wedding albums?
