Christina and Brian are the cutest young couple. They have been sweethearts for a long time already and really wanted to have a San Francisco engagement session. We photographed them in Golden Gate Park near the Music Consourse, Shakespeare’s Garden, and Japanese Tea Garden. Then we also shot at The Palace of Fine Arts and Baker Beach. We had a beautiful day and an even more beautiful couple.

San Francisco Old Mint Wedding Photos with Tiffany & Luke

Last weekend Jim Vetter Photography had the honor and pleasure of photographing the very cool wedding of Tifany & Luke at the Old Mint in San Francisco. The Old Mint, built in 1869, is the actual building where they minted silver coins and made money. This building survived the great earthquake of 1906 and if you ever go inside, you’ll understand why.

This venue was a great fit for the unique personal style of Tiffany and Luke – slightly edgy, slightly industrial and classicaly good looking!

As a San Francisco Wedding Photographer, I get to work in amazing locations with awesome people. ¬†This engagement session at Baker Beach was no exception. ¬†Devon and Matt are so easy going and great to be around that it doesn’t feel like work at all.

Once again, the weather was just perfect and we had beautiful views the entire time.

Devon and Matt will be married at the Mountain Terrace is Woodside, CA in early October. ¬†We can’t wait for the wedding and to see the lovely Devon in her gown.

San Francisco City Hall Wedding – Claire and Josh

San Francisco City Hall Weddings are some of my favorites!  The building is amazing Рinside and out.  I was so excited when Claire and Josh hired Jim Vetter Photography to photograph their wedding.  They are a lot of fun and I knew their guest would be too.

Piglet, the french bulldog was even in the wedding ūüôā

The inside of City Hall is full of beautiful spaces to make stunning photographs.  Below is Claire and Josh in one of the five-flight marble stairways in the building.

Does Claire’s dress rock or what? ¬†Yes, those are Ostrich feathers ūüėÄ

After having a great time making photographs in City Hall, we hopped in the limo and headed over to the Embarcadero for some bayside portraits before hitting the reception at Epic Roasthouse which sits right on the Embarcadero walkway next to the Bay Bridge.

Claire looked flawless throughout the day.  Her makeup was done by the firey Maria Parra.

Claire’s bouquet was created by the talented Anna Hoffman of Loop Event Design.

The scrumptious cupcakes were made by Jen’s Cakes. ¬†Always amazing, Jen!

Claire’s beautiful hair was done by Taryn Tamblyn. ¬†She looked amazing all day!

I grabbed this shot of City Hall on my way home.  What a sweet wedding venue.

Thank you, Claire and Paul!

There was the killer atmosphere of the Winery SF, great food from Simmer & Sear, and some good old funk thrown down by The Nibblers.¬† This was the best wedding band I’ve heard in a long time.¬† Go check out one of their shows.¬† They kick ass!

Here is a video slideshow of some of the highlights from the day.

Below, Courtney finishes getting ready and shows off her gorgeousness.  The shot in the middle is one of my favorites.  This is Courtney as a child with her late mother.  The sweetest thing ever.
