We found Torez on Instagram and loved her work! To pick her out for our elopement was the best choice we could make! She really dug to know our 'vibe' as a couple, she's always smiling, so nice and professional (responds very quickly) and the photos are just stunning! She knows everything about San Francisco City Hall (the best places to take pictures but also how the elopement goes) and it's highly appreciated not only before, but also on the day of the ceremony.
We don't regret our choice one single second and would recommend her to everyone! We're glad to get these photos as souvenirs of this day!
Thank you again and again.

Torez accommodated us very last minute; we asked her on a Monday if she was available to shoot our elopement on Friday! Thankfully, she was available, and took some truly lovely photos of our intimate day. She was understanding of our personalities and captured us in a way that felt authentic -- not forced or unnatural by any means. And her prices were very reasonable for some truly outstanding work; if you are looking to get photos done at City Hall and wish to do it on a reasonable budget, Torez is a great choice! We can't thank her enough for capturing us so well on our special day.

"My boyfriend and I had Torez take our pictures at the beach and we couldn’t have been happier with how they turned out! It was our first time getting professional pictures done and we were both nervous so we worried that our nervousness would show in the pictures. This was not the case whatsoever! Torez made us both feel so comfortable and all while guiding us along the way. She was also incredibly patient throughout the whole photoshoot. The photos came back to us, edited, in less than 24 hours! Considering how eager we were to see how the pictures turned out, her timeliness was definitely a plus. I can’t wait to use her for all of our future photography needs!"

I don't even know where to begin. We planned our trip from Kentucky to California for May. Due to unforeseen work circumstances we did not get to actually take our trip until September. Torez was so cooperative and kind, in dealing with our situation. Upon meeting her, she was just as kind in person. She really pays attention to details. Everything that I wanted for our anniversary shoot, she made it happen. She even had our favorite artist playing in the background to set the mood. We are already planning a trip back to take pictures with our children. Lets not even talk about the quality of the photos, amazing!!
"EVERYTHING THAT I WANTED FOR OUR ANNIVERSARY SHOOT, SHE MADE IT HAPPEN. SPECIAL DAY."

I mean I'm biased but I say anytime is the best time to get married in San Francisco! But, if you're looking for clear skies and warmer weather then 100% opt for the fall preferably September/October if possible. As long as fire season is under control you should have blue skies and golden sunsets.
City Hall in San Francisco is an architectural wonder and a streamlined yet unique venue. I'll guide you through the whole process, from pre-ceremony planning to those first magical moments as a married couple. To get you started, check out this blog about City Hall weddings!
