The Wedding of Kia & Jeff {San Francisco City Hall} Wedding Photography | Marin, Napa, Sonoma County Wedding Photographer...Shelley Hohe

Kia and Jeff contacted me just a few months before their wedding so I actually never had the chance to meet them face to face till their big day.  I was so excited when they told me over the phone that they were going to have an intimate wedding with their immediate family at San Francisco City Hall.  This place is iconic for couples getting married.  It was my first time ever being in SF City Hall and let me tell you it is STUNNING!  The architecture and the lighting from all the windows are amazing for photographing a wedding.

The fun part about their wedding day is it was also my birthday.  I couldn't have asked for a better birthday present than to be able to capture Kia and Jeff's special day.  They were so sweet, fun and of course a very gorgeous couple which made photographing them a piece of cake!  Their family was amazing as well, they were all so nice to my husband and I as we were directing them where to be for what photo.  Being on a time frame especially a wedding, as a photographer you have to be able to direct people and this family made it fun and easy for us!!

After the ceremony and some formal shots at San Francisco City Hall we headed to The Palace of Fine Arts which is also located in San Francisco.  This is such a perfect outdoor location for portraits between the lush greenery, the exquisite architecture and the beautiful pond.  You can't help but get a ton of great photos of this place.  I do have to give a out for bird droppings!  My husband and I did get hit...LOL.  As long as it happened to us and not the bride and groom!  

In the end it was a blessing and honor to be able to capture this intimate and beautiful wedding for such an amazing couple.  Thank you Kia and Jeff...Congratulations!!!
