The SF City Hall Experience

everything you need to know 

the wedding experience

step by step, here's what to expect


The first step will come as no surprise... contact me! My contact form will request a few details from you including crucially your wedding date. 

If I'm free I'll send my info + pricing guide, or if not I'll recommend some other awesome photographers who'll take good care of you!

get in touch


The next step is meeting up either in person at my studio in the vibrant Mission District or by Skype! 

It's a big decision, so take some time to think about it and let me know when you're ready to go ahead.

You'll both need to sign my contract to make it official (regardless of who is paying). 

Shortly after the contract is signed I'll send your invoice link to pay online. 

Usually it's 50% down to book, or 100% if your ceremony is within a month!

signed, sealed, delivered


We continue to collaborate in the run up the ceremony!

I'll hook you up with local vendors you need and lend you my expertise as the plans take shape.

I'll ask for some info from you so we have everything locked down for the wedding day.

Looking for a photographer for your big wedding reception?


Everyone is nervous about being photographed. I make it comfortable, natural and fun!

Things rarely go quite according to plan at City Hall. The trick is to roll with it!

I have many tricks up my sleeve for getting photos in the areas you are most drawn to!

Morning is a beautiful time to be married. I can be there at 8am when City Hall empty and filled with light!

City Hall secrets!

"As fairly introverted people who shy away from cameras, I knew there may be hope for us! Zoe proved to be spectacular at what she does. She made us feel at ease with the camera and after not too long, we stopped noticing its presence as much and just acted like ourselves. We took pictures all over inside and outside the building with her guiding the way, always checking in and asking us for input."
— Heather & Jason

"All of the couples she has photographed looked so natural and in love."

"We  prioritized photographers who worked with ALL kinds of couples, couples who look like us. Her portfolio revealed itself to be both classic yet modern, artsy and professional. Zoe was our first choice and she did not disappoint. She makes you feel welcome and valued throughout the whole process. She was very easy and warm to work with."
—  Jake and Omar

"so happy we found Zoe to capture our special day."

"Zoe took such care to capture the small moments that really made the day memorable. And looking back at the images takes me right back to the moment. She was there for everything yet somehow she "hides" in the background.

Her no nonsense and efficient demeanor were total bonuses!!"
—  Jessica & John

"Zoe had a plan and executed it perfectly."

"Zoe was professional but approachable, making the entire experience smooth and easy. She was responsive, knowledgeable, and helpful throughout the process, detailing and explaining everything along the way. We had a clear understanding of what to expect from our first communication with her in email."
—  Jen & Jeff

"Zoe hustled to capture as many photos as possible in different locations."

"There are truly not enough words to express our gratitude to Zoe for taking our photos [...] She is SUCH a calm soul. We had our entire family with us (who can be very demanding, restless and opinionated) plus our malti-poo, but she directed all of us with such grace and ease. "
—  Stephanie & Minh

"We found an artist who would be able to capture the essence of who we are"

Where are the packages?

I don't have any!

It starts with a 2-hour base package that covers 15 mins pre check-in, ceremony, family formals + your couples session.

You then add on time in half hour increments.
