Northern California Wedding Photographers

Certified By The Guide wedding professionalsBrides, grooms and other wedding professionals love the Northern California/San Francisco Bay Area wedding photographers listed below. How do we know? We ask them ourselves—and if we don’t hear raves, we don’t consider them Certified By The Guide. Here Comes The Guide lists wedding photographers who aren’t only talented, but also ethical, reliable and easy to work with—i.e., professional in every sense.

Whether you want candid and photojournalistic wedding images, a totally traditional wedding album, or fun and emotional photos that are completely out-of-the-box, we bet you’ll find your wedding photo style below. But before you make your final choice, make sure all your questions are answered—in writing! We’ve created a list of important questions to ask your wedding photographer and have other wedding photography tips to get you started.
