Hello! My name is Lilia Ahner. I have photographed over 500+ San Francisco City Hall weddings since 2007.
City Hall is one of my all time favorite locations in San Francisco. Many of my clients have traveled from far away places — such as Great Britain, Germany, China, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Japan, Ireland — just to get married in this historic location.
It would be an honor to photograph your wedding! My style is modern, romantic, and timeless. My approach is to tell your love story and show your authentic self. I love to capture the emotional dynamic between a couple, and to show their real personalities. I help you to look your best at all times.
I will take you to the best photo locations inside the building. City Hall has four floors, and each floor has different architectural details. There are many beautiful backgrounds for photos inside City Hall, and I know all of them! Of course, we will definitely take photos at the iconic and famous front door.
My best advice is to just be yourself, and I will guide you through your wedding day.
If family and friends are joining you, I will document all of the candid moments with your guests, and capture relaxed and natural family portraits.
If it is just the two of you, I am happy to act as your witness.
If you are interested in other locations after your ceremony at City Hall, I know San Francisco very well and can suggest wonderful locations for you. Some of the more popular locations include Crissy Field, the Golden Gate Bridge, Palace of Fine Arts, Legion of Honor, the Presidio, the Embarcadero, and more.
Or if you are interested in reception coverage, I am available to capture the candid moments at your reception. If you need restaurant recommendations, just let me know.
