San Francisco City Hall Wedding Photography | Kalina & Michael

Here is a wedding that will put a smile on your face!

Kalina and Michael currently live on the East coast, but as Kalina grew up in San Francisco, she wanted to spend her wedding day in the city that was such a big part of her life. The two also decided that they wanted something simple and intimate with their families, yet with an amazing backdrop. San Francisco City Hall was the perfect choice.

I just have to say that I work with so many couples throughout year, but I absolutely fell in love with Kalina! She has such a good heart and I really connected with her and it made taking her photos so easy and fun! Both her and Michael are such wonderful people and so much fun. I also have to mention Kalina's dad! He and Kalina have an amazing relationship and he helped out with every little detail and took on the role of my personal assistant because he could make them (and me!) laugh so much! The night before, as a loving gesture to Kalina, he drank 6 cans of Grass Jelly so that they could tie the cans to their get away car. Too funny! He also drove us all over the city. So sweet!

Another part of the day that I loved was the clown nose family photo! I have never done clown nose pictures before and I thought it was such a great and silly touch! They also wanted to take a few photos of them flying a kite at Crissy Field which supposedly is an easy task, but we never really got it in the air. Either way, it brought big smiles and made for a unique addition.

One last thing that I have to mention is how gorgeous Kalina's Vera Wang dress is! So stunning!

Congratulations Kalina and Michael!
