Baker Beach San Francisco Engagement Photos with Dawn & Steve

What a beautiful evening for engagement photos in San Francisco and at Baker Beach! San Francisco Wedding Photographer, Jim Vetter Photography had the honor and pleasure to photograph Dawn and Steve for their engagement last weekend.

We began by taking the streetcar downtown and then jumped in Steve’s old Bronco to head down to Baker Beach. I must say that Steve’s open air Bronco is a great way to see the city!

Marin Engagement Photos with Alexis and Lorenzo

Engagement photography in Marin county just north of San Francisco is so much fun!  Marin has some of the most wonderful locations in the San Francisco bay area in which to photograph couples for engagements, weddings or anything for that matter.  I just did an engagement photo session with Alexis and Lorenzo who came down from Stockton to be photographed.  I’ll be photographing their wedding in October in Lodi, CA.

Alexis loves the vintage look Robson Harrington Park where we did the session is a perfect fit.  The garden walls are made of old brick that was recovered from buildings demolished in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.   The owner of the park land also owned a large amount of land all around the area and salvaged building materials when old buildings came down.  These materials make for a rustic old world look in this beautiful park setting.

Alexis and Lorenzo originally planned to marry in the summer of 2013 but then decided that they just couldn’t wait so they moved the date up to October 2012.  I was glad to hear this because I can’t wait to photograph the wedding either!  They make such a lovely copule.

Alexis is really my ideal client – she loves and values photography and is as excited about her photographs as I am about making them.  So, if you share that love of photography with Alexis, please contact me to photograph your wedding!

I’d like to thank Alexis and Lorenzo for coming all the way down to San Anselmo from Stockton to do their session with me.  You guys rock!

Please share this post with your friends.   Thank you!

Benicia Engagement Photos with Lina and Buddy

Jim Vetter Photography recently did an engagement session in Benicia, CA with a very sweet couple.  I photographed a wedding in Benicia at the Arsenal a couple of years ago but had not seen much of the area.  The Benicia State Recreation Area, as it is called, gave us a great backdrop of rocks, water and sky to create these images.

What started out as a misty, overcast morning turned into a beautifully warm day and afforded us some killer skies!

Buddy is from Hawaii’s Big Island where they will be returning to for the wedding.  Lina has never been to Hawaii and, understandably, cannot wait!

I’ll be photographing Lina and Buddy’s engagement party this weekend and will have more images to share soon!
