San Francisco City Hall Weddings

A wise woman commented to me recently, that life is all about the stories. No place that I know of has more love stories than San Francisco City Hall. Monday through Friday 9:30 to 3:30pm brides and grooms line up outside of room 168 to check in for their very own San Francisco City Hall wedding.

I’ve been privileged to be the only witness at top secret City Hall elopements (they told their kids after the fact by sending them their wedding pictures!), and same sex weddings for couples who had waited as long as the thirtieth anniversary of the day they met for their nuptials. They were simply overjoyed by the experience. There have been adorable last-minute-before-the-baby-comes maternity weddings, and others who came for a San Francisco City Hall destination wedding. I’ve met adventurous couples from London, England, Scotland, Australia, Ireland, Russia, Hong Kong and Nigeria. They’d plan the destination wedding as part of their complete wedding and honeymoon itinerary. San Francisco is a very easy jumping off point for a Napa wine country or a Monterey and Carmel honeymoon.

You’ve never seen anything like your San Francisco City Hall wedding pictures, because this time it’s your turn to be the couple getting married. Imagine it, saying your vows, exchanging newly bought rings and then finally that indescribable kiss that seals the deal.

Whenever I walk into this building I feel really happy. It feels warm and familiar, like home. Well, if I was lucky enough to live in a 5000,000 sq foot house. Because of its massive size you’ll need a San Francisco City Hall wedding photographer with extensive knowledge of the space. There are four floors of grand marble and sandstone architecture that I’ll take you through with every wedding photography package that I offer. You can be confidant that I’ll capture the shots you want, at a price you can afford, and that your wedding day will run smoothly.

What are other City hall Couples Saying about Rachel?

Rachel photographed our intimate wedding ceremony and following the ceremony took my spouse and me around San Francisco to shoot photos in the city. We happened upon her website when we googled “same sex wedding photographers in San Francisco”.  Little did we know how lucky we were when we found her! Within 3 weeks of finding her we had discussed pricing, booked our time, and felt comfortable with her before we even flew into the city for our runaway wedding. Rachel captured every emotion felt on our day. She is a one of a kind photographer who makes sure you are comfortable and happy throughout your shoot. She is very creative and was not afraid to get down and dirty in order to get great shots of my spouse and me. Not only did she photograph our day to our liking, she acted as our witness,  and our tour guide as she took us around town to some of the best places in the city!  We are so grateful for the kindness, professionalism, and skill that Rachel brought to help celebrate and capture our beautiful wedding day. She really went above and beyond the call of duty and anyone who chooses her as a photographer will be in for a treat! 5 stars and then some to Rachel for being not only an excellent photographer,  but a generous and kind person!

I just want to thank you for an incredibly awesome City Hall wedding photo shoot. Since I was making all of our arrangements long distance and online, I was at first concerned how we’d find the perfect professional photographer for our special day at a price we could afford. I was very excited to discover your site and when I browsed your gallery, I knew you’d be perfect. After speaking with you on the phone I was excited to work with you. To anyone else who may be considering Rachel Levine Photography, I encourage you to look no further. 

Since our wedding day was also our 30th anniversary, it was a very big day for us with lots of anxiety about the events of the day. Thanks for making our wedding day photos so special. You returned my calls promptly, showed up on time, addressed our comments and concerns about the day, and your willingness to incorporate our ideas into the shoot was incredible. Of course your creativity and awesome personality made the time we spent together fun and immediately put us at ease. I think this is why our photos came out so beautiful!

I cannot thank you enough and just wanted others to know what they might expect should they have the pleasure to hire you for their event. We are forever grateful.

Rachel Levine was soooo AWESOME!! We had her take pictures of our wedding at San Francisco City Hall and she did incredible.  She knew where the best spots to take the pictures were inside city hall! When we received the pictures back it was only a couple weeks if that and they turned out AMAZING!!! We could not have asked for more! She was affordable and did a high quality job. We would definitely recommend her to anyone!
