San Francisco City Hall Wedding

To say that I am behind on my blogging, is by far an understatement! I am a photographer and a creative and I love to write, but as of late I have found it hard to sit down and focusĀ  and really put “pen to paper” (as they used to say back in my day). I tend to leave the story telling to my pictures! My camera and I have had the pleasure of capturing SO MANY BEAUTIFUL LOVE STORIES and it’s time I start sharing them with the world!

These pictures are from Ankita and Raj’s romantic and intimate San Francisco City Hall Wedding that I had the pleasure of being a part of back in December of 2016, yes that’s right, I said 2016! As long as it’s been, seeing the photos refresh my memory and bring me back to that cool and rainy San Francisco morning. For a wedding photographer there is nothing more exciting than the morning of a wedding, especially when it involves such an iconic landmark as a venue and such am amazingly photogenic couple that is madly in love like Ankita and Raj.

The night before I also photographed them by the gorgeous coastline of Half Moon Bay for a stunning styled elopement session.

This was more subtle. Simple, classic and elegant are the best words I can think of to describe their San Francisco city hall wedding. I know my pictures do a much better job of telling the story of that day, so I will leave it to them. I chose to use all classic black and white images on this since their Half Moon Bay Elopement was filled with so much color and with such a classic couple andĀ  such a classic venue, timeless black and white images just seemed so right for this! I hope you agree!

San Francisco city hall boasts beautiful architecture.

An art lover’s dream for sure!

It’s hard not to stop looking up with so much loveliness all around!

The Christmas tree is always massive and beautifully staged a top the grand staircase every year.

Like I said the tree was huge!

First order of business is meeting with the judge which in this case is also the officiant.

This part isn’t very glamorous, but it’s very important of course!

Once that part was over, we all had over to the little wedding ceremony a top the grand staircase.

Such a beautiful staircase by the way!

Ankita was thrilled to make it to the top!

Now the official ceremony can commence!

They exchanged vows.

And they exchanged rings.

And they were pronounced husband and wife!

And he kissed his bride……..

For a long time!

Making our way to the couple’s portraits, but first some more stunning architecture!

Just look at this dome!

And this hallway!

So pretty!

It’s no wonder why this place is always filled with people!

Ankita looking like a work of art!

Raj couldn’t keep his eyes off her!

I don’t blame him! Ankita is gorgeous!

They are just perfect together!

Need I say more?

And these next couple images are my favorite!

Both are 35mm film using Ilford 3200. I love the texture on these!

And for the grand finally……

So much beauty and so much love! Congratulations once again Ankita and Raj!
