We thought it would be fun to put together a compilation of nothing but bridal portraits. As everybody knows, the bride is the main part of any wedding and this is no different at San Francisco city hall. We went back into our archives and searched for some of favorite bridal head shots and also full length gowns pictures. We were actually surprised at how many different types of poses and backgrounds we had put together over the years. Any bride who books us for their San Francisco city hall wedding photography would benefit from checking out this compilation. It will provide her with some ideas about how she might want accessorize her own gown, but gives the the chance to let us know some of her favorites pictures. The more information we can obtain from your future brides before their wedding, the better we can make sure we satisfy their needs.
The obvious answer to this question is that it is probably a good idea to do some of both, but where should the emphasis be? I think it really depends upon the bride. Bride's who are more comfortable in front of the camera can easily do both. A camera shy SF city hall bride would probably be best served looking off in one direction camera or down. You can see that in many of our individual portraits, the bride is looking down. There are a couple of reasons for this. For one thing, it gives you the chance to see her eye make up and also get a nice view of her face from that angle. The other reason is that it is a very easy pose for most brides to do, so we like to use it as warm up shot. A great way to get the bride ready more pictures and hopefully become more comfortable in front of the camera. Bridal portraits also provide a great opportunity to really focus in closely to her carefully selected accessories and jewelry. You can see this in many of our photos.
