- About This Post
City Hall in San Francisco is a jaw-dropping example of fine architecture, so shooting engagements and weddings at this location is always a creative challenge I’m excited to embrace. The spaces are huge, and there’s always a dozen other photographers doing their thing at the same time, so capturing the spaces with your couple without showing all the other people milling about is particularly difficult. I love using off-camera lighting, and at this location this technique can truly elevate the kind of photo you can take there – although it takes way more time and effort, as I’m often shooting from a different floor than my couples are on. Luckily Jamie and Will were completely receptive to my ideas, and did pretty much anything I asked (I try not to abuse the privilege). After the brief civil ceremony in one of the offices downstairs, we explored the four levels of the building and various spaces (including the elevator!). I’m really happy with the photos we got from this engagement shoot.
Enjoy my favorite photos below – and please feel free to leave a comment or share!

- If you don’t think you have what it takes to look like one of the couples on this page – you’re wrong! With a little coaching and a couple shots of tequila (I jest…), you can get results just like all the other “normal” non-model people you see here. I’ve been shooting engaged couples for quite a few years, and I absolutely love it. It’s a challenge that I embrace – and let’s be honest, you two will be way more cooperative than a couple of cranky toddlers – right?
