"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."

"We [didn't] regret our choice one single second."

- Ale and Hanson

"We are so in love with the photos Torez took for our civil wedding at San Francisco City Hall. From the very beginning, Torez was friendly, helpful, and professional. She captured the most lovely moments of our small ceremony, and we couldn't be happier with the results. I was very nervous about the day's logistics, but Torez knows everything about San Francisco City Hall, which made things go stress-free and smoothly. I've received so many compliments about the photos of my wedding day, and I'm more than obsessed with them. They look so natural and beautiful. We highly recommend Torez's services to everyone!

Thank you so much for everything!"

"TOREZ KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT SAN FRANCISCO CITY HALL."

- Hanna and Thomas

"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."

"SHE... CAPTURED US IN A WAY THAT FELT AUTHENTIC."

- Cait and allan

"My fiancée and I LOVE the engagement photos Torez took. We were nervous going into the session (in San Francisco) but Torez took the edge off right away and made us feel comfortable. She had great recommendations about where to go and how to move around together.

Our photos ended up capturing us beautifully – they don’t feel too “posed” or unnatural. Torez was communicative through the whole process and got our photo set back to us quickly. We highly recommend her as a photographer."

"Our photos ended up capturing us beautifully."

- wynter, matt, remy, and ollie

"Searching for a photographer in our time frame was stressful but right from the start we felt a warmth and confidence from Torez that quickly put us at ease. Her quick responses, reassurance, and patience with our questions made us feel heard and confident that we found the right person.

She understood how much it meant to include our dogs on our special day and she kindly offered to take care of them during the photoshoot. Torez was a joy to take our engagement photos and she clearly put tremendous personal effort to make it a memorable experience for us and our two weenie dogs. We are absolutely in love with our photos and would definitely work with Torez again. 10/10 RECOMMEND!!"

"RIGHT FROM THE START WE FELT A WARMTH AND CONFIDENCE FROM TOREZ."

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.
