Don't Forget the Documentation

One of the great things about having your wedding at San Francisco city hall is that everything is provided for you. So if you are doing it on your own, just make sure that you remember to acquire the appropriate permit or permission if needed at that particular ceremony site. Once you have all the details worked out, bring yourselves, your officiant, marriage license, proper ID, and your witness. Don't forget your San Francisco city hall wedding photographers! If you do not have a witness, I am happy to serve in that capacity for you. This can be an affordable alternative to your San Francisco city hall wedding. We will take you to SF city hall for amazing pictures after your nuptials are complete if you so desire.

SF Bay Area Alternatives for Civil Ceremonies

We are based in San Francisco but serve other City Halls throughout the entire Bay Area including Pleasant Hill, San Mateo, Oakland, Martinez, San Ramon and others. Despite the fact that these other city hall wedding venues may not offer quite the architecture and history that San Francisco does, many of them have lovely outdoor locations nearby for wedding photo opportunities. We can also take you to alternative San Francisco Bay Area locations for the rest of your wedding photography session.

We have been offering our services throughout the SF Bay Area for years, let us help you on your special day. We can be your city hall wedding photographer at any location throughout the Bay Area. Martinez, in particular has some fantastic photo locations in the old town section and we can walk there after your civil ceremony. It is conveniently located close by to the County Clerk.
