BRIDES Northern California: San Francisco's Best Wedding Photographers

California, Local, Wedding Photography

The Bay Area is home to a plethora of incredibly talented wedding photographers, so it's no surprise if you're experiencing a little bit of portfolio fatigue. We're here to help — listed below are the top local photographers who will stylishly capture your nuptials so you can cherish the images for years to come.

Cooper Carras Photography (Above)
Style-conscious couples should look into Cooper Carras, whose portfolio includes fashion spreads, ad campaigns, and even a portrait of President Obama. His artful wedding images have a clean, editorial look.

Tanja Lippert Photography
With digital photography the norm, it's refreshing to meet someone who insists on shooting entirely on film. Tanja Lippert's photos have a natural, unprocessed quality and are bathed in that golden California light. Read real brides' reviews here!

Suzy Clement Photographs
Suzy Clement's photojournalistic style means she'll document each moment — scripted or not — as it unfolds. However, her images aren't cold and candid, as is sometimes the case with reportage-type photographers.

Anna Kuperberg
The veteran of the bunch, Anna Kuperberg has been shooting weddings for 20 years. She's an especially keen choice if you're including your pet in the ceremony — she has another site devoted to dog photography and knows how to capture those YouTube-worthy moments with your furry friends.

Meg Smith Photography
Though she's photographed plenty of Hollywood celebrity weddings (including those of Anne Hathaway and Jimmy Kimmel), Meg Smith is based in Napa and is our pick if you're hosting a wine-country wedding. Her images have an elegant simplicity and she knows exactly how to capture the valley's glowy (and oh-so-flattering!) late-afternoon light.
