Windy Hill and Stanford Engagement Photos with Monique and Joe

We just had the great pleasure of spending the day with Monique and Joe to make their engagement photos on Stanford University campus and up on Windy Hill in Portola Valley, California. What a day!

Monique and Joe came to me as a referral from a friend (Joe’s brother) and we immediately hit it off. They are very genuine and down to earth. They know what they want and they enjoy each other immensely. If you share these character traits, please call me and hire me for your wedding too ūüôā



Stanford campus is amazing for architecture…



It’s also amazing for nature…





Then, they introduced me to a new location that I had not photographed before. Windy Hill on Highway 35 outside of Portola Valley. Awesome!




And the sky really put on a show for us…




Rock on, MoJo!


Marriott San Mateo Wedding Photos – Lily & David

San Francisco Wedding Photographer, Jim Vetter Photography just had the honor of photographing the wedding of Lily & David at the San Mateo Marriott. ¬†It was a beautiful, warm June afternoon and the wedding couldn’t have been sweeter.

Lily and David had their first look before the ceremony. ¬†We met at the beautiful¬†Japanese¬†Tea Garden in San Mateo’s Central Park. David’s reaction was priceless as you can see below!

It was really a pleasure working with Lily and David.  They were adorable together and had a great time all day.

Just before the wedding ceremony, they held a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony in the bridal suite at the hotel. ¬†Gifts were exchanged between the bride’s parents and the couple.

Lily and David arranged a special trea for their guests by booking an amazing group to perform a Chinese Lion Dance during the cocktail hour.  These guys were amazing!

Thank you so much to Lily & David for trusting us to photography your beautiful wedding at the San Mateo Marriott!  Congratulations!!

San Jose Hilton Wedding Photography – Jennee & Luis

This post features the San Jose wedding photography for Jennee and Luis as produced by Jim Vetter Photography. ¬†They were married at the Most Holy Trinity church in San Jose, California on April 12, 2013. ¬†The reception followed at the beautiful Hilton San Jose. ¬†If you’re planning a wedding in San Jose, we recommend contacting Gigi at the Hilton – amazing service there from Gigi and all of her staff.

Jennee and Luis are two of the most down to earth, sweet people I’ve photographed. ¬†Even through a hectic wedding day, they kept their cool and really enjoyed themselves – and so did we!

The honeymoon suite at the Hilton was fantastic for photography with its high ceilings and wall of glass overlooking downtown San Jose.  The window light was just incredible and you can see how beautiful it was on Jennee above.

Jennee’s mother, Lupe is such a kind heart and was so supportive of her daughter from the planning through the wedding day. ¬†In fact, she initially contacted us about photographing the wedding and we’re so glad she did. ¬†It was a pleasure working with her.

Jennee’s late father was remembered before the ceremony. ¬†His portrait was there with Jennee and Lupe as the completed final preparations for the wedding. ¬†He certainly did dress for the occasion.

We LOVE this photo below!  Mother is calm and happy while daughter is hyperventilating just moments before walking down the isle.

Jennee is a big lover of flowers and her wedding certainly showed it.  The roses supplied by De Young Flowers were the perfect complement to the coral bridesmaid dresses.

There were 25 bridesmaids and groomsmen in the bridal party. ¬†We gave up on trying to remember names and just called the bridesmaids “the Coral Girls” and the groomsmen “dudes.” ¬†Here they are taking over Almaden Avenue in front of the Hilton.
