Engagement Photos at Golden Gate Park and Baker Beach with Christina and Brian

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!

Stones & Flowers Wedding Photos – Ben & William

Last weekend, San Francisco Wedding Photographer, Jim Vetter Photography, had the great pleasure of photographing the sweetest wedding of the year for Ben and William at the lovely Stones & Flowers in Ben Lomond, California in the Santa Cruz Mountains. This venue is such an amazing place tucked away in the redwoods.  There are a bunch of little cabins for guests to stay in and the barn is gorgeous.  If you’re planning a rustic mountain wedding, check this place out.

Below is the video slideshow we made for Ben & William the day after the wedding…

The wedding was planned by Denise Addesso of The Wedding Connection who did a beautiful job for Ben & William.

Ben and William really went out of their way to assemble their wardrobe and accessories. The plaid fabric was sourced directly from Scotland and tailored by a personal friend of the couple.  (Notice that William’s kilt and Ben’s vest are the same fabric.)

San_Francisco_Bridal_Couture_0007.jpg

 

The redwood forest surrounding Stones & Flowers is magical. This majestic stand of redwoods is just behind the amazing barn where the dancing took place.

I haven’t seen happier men in a long time. What a great couple. 🙂

San_Francisco_Bridal_Couture_0008.jpg

As you can see, the wedding had both a Jewish theme (from Ben’s heritage) and a Scottish theme (William).

Bridal Couture Fashion Shoot at eDressit in San Francisco

While shooting the grand opening of the new eDressit bridal salon recently, we were asked to return to shoot all of their gowns for their website.  Here are a few shots from that day…

Golden Gate Park – Japanese Tea Garden – San Francisco Engagement Photos with Katie & Edward

As a San Francisco Wedding Photographer, I get to shoot in some fantastic places. Golden Gate Park is certainly one of my favorites. Katie and Edward had their engagement photography session in the park last week. We had a beautiful day and made the most of the Japanese Tea Garden, The Music Concourse and Shakespear’s Garden.

This first shot is in the Japanese Tea Garden by the little Zen Garden area.

The Music Concourse is a really cool area of the park.  There is a big stage flanked by pillars, lots of benches for sitting to watch performances and two beautiful fountains.

Shakespear’s Garden is next to the Music Concourse and has a quaint little garden area seen below.
