San Francisco Elopement Packages
You’re not just any couple - you’re non-traditional at heart, value experiences over things, and put intention behind every action. You want a wedding day that’s a true reflection of your unique bond and a photographer who can help make it a reality.
BUT, here’s the thing - finding a photographer who prioritizes getting to know you as a couple well enough to organically document your love-filled day isn’t as simple as it seems.
All that matters is that your day is a true reflection of you as a couple. As someone who can’t imagine my wedding day without my family, I completely understand wanting your closest people present.
On the other hand, I’ve served countless couples who eloped just the two of them and fully support you doing that, too!
I don’t discriminate - whether you’re gearing up for a cozy elopement at Marin Headlands or an intimate wedding at City Hall, I’ll plan and capture your day with the precision and emotion it deserves.

"I started looking for an adventure elopement photographer based in the San Francisco area on Instagram and quickly came across Torez and really just fell in love with her artistic style. We set up a phone call and my husband was instantly impressed with her professionalism and how well put together she came across so we made a decision right away that we wanted to hire her.
She was so helpful throughout the entire process, providing us with many check-ins and tons of helpful tips. But it was on our elopement day that Torez really blew us out of the water.... When we got our photos back we were just floored at how amazing they turned out! I would give here 10 stars if I could. Pick Torez as your wedding photographer, she's an amazing artist and person. You won't regret it!"

When thinking about taking photos in SF we would highly recommend Torez!! She came with the background knowledge of where to go and covered all the details of what we needed to know when taking our photos in the city.
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!!
"Torez was a joy to take our engagement photos with."
- Ale & 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."
- Cait & 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 [captured] us beautifully."
- Patricia & Lyndez
"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 didn'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."
- Haley & Brett
"Booking with Torez was one of the best decisions we made when doing an anniversary mini session on our trip to San Francisco. We came across Torez on instagram and fell in love with her style and her energy (the reels are amazing!)....
We met up with Torez and immediately felt like friends. Through her clear directions and her understanding of what we wanted we ended up with the sweetest and loveliest photos that captured our favourite morning of the trip. We enjoyed listening to her music and just hanging out! If you are thinking of hiring Torez I would 1000000% recommend. She is so genuine and kind and makes you feel like a million bucks. If we are ever in the area again we would definitely call her up."
"WE MET UP WITH TOREZ AND IMMEDIATELY FELT LIKE FRIENDS."
- KATE & RANDAL
"I can’t say enough good things about Torez. Not only did the pictures turn out beautifully, but she really went above and beyond scouting out photo locations and creating a schedule for the day and making sure we got our dream photos.
I also really appreciated how Torez makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera and suggestions natural poses so your photos end up looking candid and not staged.
Whether you’re booking an elopement, couples or individual photo session in California, Torez is your person!"
"I CAN’T SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT TOREZ."
- Klayton & Courtney
"My fiancé and I took engagement pictures with Torez and we had a great experience and would certainly recommend her again and again. We won our session on an Instagram contest and she was so easy to work with and coordinate.
We settled on Carmel, she helped with outfits, location styling, posing, everything. She embraced our awkwardness and our photos turned out amazing — we get so many compliments on them. It was like working with an old friend. Thank you Torez."
"IT WAS LIKE WORKING WITH AN OLD FRIEND."
- Katy & markus
"I only have amazing things to say about Torez! My fiance and I were looking into engagement photographers and we wanted someone who knew SF and was going to make sure we were nice and relaxed while taking photos. Torez jumped right on board when we said we wanted to take photos at our favorite local bar! On the day of, we had 1.5 hrs and it felt like it flew by in the best way possible. She was great at giving tips on how to pose and giving prompts for us to have fun and play around with each other.
We started at the bar and then walked to a park nearby. She made sure to ask us if there were any specific photos we wanted captured and made sure it happened. We're so thrilled with our photos and get so many compliments on them. Thank you Torez!!!"
"I ONLY HAVE AMAZING THINGS TO SAY ABOUT TOREZ."
- ASHLEY & ANTOINE
"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."
-Hanna & 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."
"WE CAN'T THANK HER ENOUGH FOR CAPTURING US SO WELL ON OUR SPECIAL DAY."
- ALYSSA & PETER
"Torez did a fantastic job shooting our engagement photos. My fiance and I are definitely camera shy and so we knew the importance of trusting and being comfortable with our photographer every step of the way. Torez was so genuine from the start, as she truly wanted to get to know US so she can curate an experience that would carry on past that session.
She asked questions to get to know us better as a couple as well as did her research in terms of location, time of day, etc. Her turnaround time was quick and the photos turned out great - we found pictures that captured who we truly are and we couldn't be happier with the results! We were quick to post a sneak peak on Instagram as well because we were so excited :) Thank you, Torez!!"
"WE FOUND PICTURES THAT CAPTURED WHO WE TRULY ARE AND WE COULDN'T BE HAPPIER."
- Elana & Charles
"We are so happy we went with Torez for our wedding! I found her on IG a couple years ago and messaged her to see if she was available for our date. She responded promptly, worked with our wants, gave us questionnaires to learn more about us and was overall very communicative the entire time.
The day before the wedding nailed down the timeline and realized we needed additional time and she was willing to work with us to find the best solution! We also decided to do a "day-after" shoot instead of an engagement shoot and had such a blast exploring the White Mountains with her. Honestly we could not have asked for a better photographer and would recommend her to any of our friends/family that are in need of a photographer!"
"HONESTLY WE COULD NOT HAVE ASKED FOR A BETTER. PHOTOGRAPHER."
- Elisa & Chris
"I found Torez Marguerite Photography on instagram and I really loved scrolling through her work. My fiancé and I hopped on a Zoom call with Torez ASAP and had such a wonderful time getting to know her and telling her our story!! We scheduled our session with her immediately after the call because we were so excited to work with someone who was sweet and professional at the same time...
The day we had our session, things moved so seamlessly!! Torez really knew how to make my fiancé and I feel comfortable throughout the entire photoshoot (we really had no idea what we were doing). We had so much fun and we would book another photoshoot with Torez in a heartbeat. We were also very happy with all of our photos when we received them. Our wedding website and invitations are going to look incredible. Torez was amazing and I would definitely recommend working with her!!"

With 8-12 hours, we can create a day-long adventure that beautifully captures your love story. We'll start early with getting ready shots, maybe at your hotel or a cozy Airbnb, before heading to City Hall for the ceremony. From there, we'll explore the city, capturing romantic moments at iconic spots like the Golden Gate Bridge, Twin Peaks, and romantic hideaways you might not know about.
City Hall ceremonies are both charming and efficient. We'll need to arrive about 30-45 minutes prior to your scheduled ceremony time to get through security and check-in. Ceremonies usually take about 5-10 minutes, held either at the Rotunda or a private ceremony room, depending on availability.
I recommend applying for your marriage license in advance, but same-day appointments can also be made. Make sure to bring a valid photo ID and your marriage license when you arrive! After the ceremony, we can take some beautiful shots around City Hall, which offers a stunning backdrop.

I do light retouching, color correcting, and photo adjustments. My general photo style is true to color warmed so, I like to keep things natural. I only photoshop blemishes that won't be there within two weeks of the session. I do not do any heavy retouching or body altering.
My posing style is documentary and candid. I like to think of each portion of the day as a little mini story that is a part of your whole story. Your elopement, wedding, or session aren't all day photoshoots. The focus is on you and your relationship, I might suggest a certain pose or movement but it's my job to help you feel as comfortable in front of the camera as possible so I capture photos of you two being you!
Absolutely, it would be my pleasure to help you create an itinerary that celebrates your love and showcases the best of San Francisco! Whether you want a day filled with sightseeing or a more laid-back experience, I can offer recommendations and help structure your day to ensure smooth transitions between locations, activities, and photo sessions. I'll even provide you with a detailed guide on how to get the most out of your San Francisco elopement, including vendor recommendations and tips for an unforgettable day.
