Golden Gate Bridge Wedding Gallery

We had a lovely time with Vida and Admir taking pictures on Baker Beach near sunset. Baker Beach has become one of the preferred locations after San Francisco city hall weddings since the Pandemic reopening. Perhaps this is because people feel safer out on the beach with less crowds. In addition, I know that a few people are a little nervous about doing San Francisco street photography these days because of some recent incidents that have made the news. I am not sure, but it has been great photographing more couples at this amazing location and it is definitely on of the safer locations for wedding photography. Baker Beach has regular patrols present that keep a constant eye on things. For those of you who like the Golden Bate Bridge but also enjoy the ocean, Baker Beach is perfect since it offers both! We normally start our wedding photography session out on the beach with the Golden Gate bridge in the background. Then switch our focus more to the ocean itself and try to capture waves behind our couple as they walk close to the surf. If the couple is interested, they can actually wade through the water because the surf is usually pretty calm here. When we do that, I make sure we have a "spotter" to watch for rogue waves. The safety of our couple is always the most important thing to us and we never forget that. As wedding photographers, we love to capture great moments, but not at the expense of our couple's well being. As mentioned above, the other nice thing about this San Francisco destination is that there are accessible woods nearby. Just walking distance from the beach finds you in a heavy miniature forest with big trees and lots of shade. The perfect trick for our couples to stay out of the heat and also get some great images.

We wanted to put things into perspective for those engaged couples trying to plan their wedding day. Here is how a typical City Hall wedding photography coverage like this goes:

  1. Meet the couple by the County Clerk at San Francisco city hall
  2. Photograph their Civil Ceremony
  3. Take pictures of Family and Friends
  4. Take the newlyweds around city hall for a photo tour of all 4 floors
  5. Drive the couple to the San Francisco photography destination (Baker Beach in this case)
  6. Take pictures of the couple out on the beach
  7. Escort the newlyweds to the woods nearby for wedding photography
