Arionna and Kyle wanted an elegant setting for their San Francisco engagement photos, so City Hall was a perfect choice. The couple is getting married on the beach, so they felt an urban setting was a great contrast for their beach wedding photos.
This couple has known each other a long time! They first met in eighth grade, when Kyle attended one of Oriana‘s basketball games. They dated for many years, but took some time apart when they were attending college. After graduating, they reconnected, and will be married later this year.
San Francisco City Hall is one of my favorite engagement photo locations because of its timeless beauty. If you are someone who appreciates vintage architecture like I do, you will understand. There are so many gorgeous Beaux-Arts details: leaded glass windows, gilded ironwork, and everyone’s favorite, the grand stairway! All of these things lend themselves to dramatic and elegant engagement photos.
Normally City Hall is bustling with married couples all day, every day. Civil ceremonies are offered daily throughout the week, and San Francisco City Hall is a top choice for elopements. As luck would have it, we arrived to find the place almost empty, and even managed to take a few photos on the staircase while no one else was around.
Moments later, the entire San Francisco fire department arrived for a commemorative photo, so we timed it just right!
Arionna and Kyle looked every bit the part for their San Francisco City Hall engagement photos. Arionna came well-prepared with several glamorous gowns, and every one of them looked amazing in this stunning setting. Kyle brought his A-game as well, a chic suit. The end result: these two could easily grace the pages of a magazine.
Arionna and Kyle, it was such a pleasure working with you, wishing you happiness together always!
