San Diego Courthouse Wedding Photos | Michelle + Matias
As a San Diego courthouse wedding photographer, I can see how this type of wedding takes the stress off of couples. Having a San Diego civil wedding takes the pressure away from a full wedding day. It also adds the focus on the couples themselves. In this San Diego Courthouse Wedding Photos | Michelle + Matias actually had me for two sessions. One for the ceremony and portraits at the courthouse and another for a wedding portrait session at the beach.
An elopement doesn’t just mean you sign the marriage license. You get to take amazing portraits at the courthouse or other locations. You still can invite some friends and family. Lastly, you can still party and have a reception or dinner afterwards. They had a dinner right after this courthouse session which is why they scheduled a wedding portrait session at sunset on another day.
When scheduling your San Diego marriage license ceremony, you have the option of choosing indoor or outdoor. If you choose indoor, rest assured that you can still have photos taken at the outdoor arbor. It cycles through, so you just have to make sure it is during a time when there isn’t a ceremony going on. It is common for people to choose indoor for fear of rain or bad weather.
The landscape at the courthouse, for the most part, stays the same. Of course we do get a little bit of seasonal foliage in San Diego that does affect some of the landscape. I always suggest to do a walk thru with your clients within 2 weeks of the wedding date so you are up to date with how everything is looking. It helps to avoid any surprises. Especially if you are banking on certain trees or flowers.
