disappointed in how you look
embarrassed on your wedding day
heartbroken by missed moments or lost photos.
Your wedding experience is
too important to be...
kept away from your party for too long
I promise to be a responsive, reliable, and caring professional for you and your guests.
Uniquely creative lighting and direction make your photography stand apart.
Calm, cool, compassionate.
warm, sexy, passionate.
regal, sophisticated, timeless.
No one should stress about photography.
...before, during, or after the wedding.

Well, even though I haven't actually lived in Beverly Hills, I've made my home in more California zip codes than I care to admit!
The long and winding road to where I am today took me from Ohio boy in a rock band to nerdy engineering student in Santa Barbara. From high-tech executive in London to dotcom startup guy in Silicon Valley. I treasure that life experience, but creating art for my clients has been the best part of the journey!
I'm a midwestern boy but I knew California was the place I aught'a be, so I loaded up the truck and I moved to...
Stephanie & Dustin
We chose him because not only was his portfolio beautiful, but his personality and professionalism made us feel immediately at ease. Jim was the photographer who had us at hello :)
He was wonderful at keeping in touch with us, listening to what we envisioned, giving us artistic advice, and making us feel very confident. Everyone who attended our wedding still raves about him. Jim is the best and we are very happy with the experience he gave us.
“Jim's personality & professionalism made us feel immediately at ease”
Luz & Oscar
I think Jim provides a invaluable artistic eye, he traveled with us to Mexico, became family through the journey and I could not have been happier with the moments he captured during our destination wedding. He also took some epic trash the dress shots of us jumping 30 feet into a cenote! Did I also mention he sings? We had a blast, he made me feel comfortable, natural and having him around was calming.

Jim Vetter is one of a kind and you will be thrilled with his professionalism, down to earth and warm demeanor. He takes any setting and makes in into a masterpiece, especially with natural lighting! We spent approximately 4 hours just getting to know him and the camera for our engagement photo session and are thrilled with the results!
“He takes any setting and makes it into a masterpiece!”
Choosing a photographer may seem overwhelming. How can you know who to trust? Well, I'd like to earn your trust with my promise that...
I will promptly respond to all emails, texts, and phone calls. I will treat you and your guests with respect and kindness at all times. I will conduct myself at all times as a professional. I will keep my word, honor our agreements, and if I ever fail to do so I will make it right.
I take great pride in the quality of service and products that I deliver to my clients. I promise to use the greatest care in capturing your images and in producing your prints and albums. To provide an ever-improving service, I continually refine my skills through workshops and practice. I use top of the line Nikon camera gear - in case you were curious.
Your proofs will be ready within two weeks of your event. Your prints will be delivered within 2-6 weeks of your final order approval. (Italian Wall Art takes up to 6 weeks) Your album will be delivered within 6 weeks of your final design approval - often sooner.
My top priority is to ensure you have a great experience with me - before, during, and after the wedding. I will listen to, and intuit, your needs, desires, and preferences to ensure that I am never diminishing your experience. Your wedding is about you - not your photographer. I promise not to monopolize your time. I promise to be stealthy and not unnecessarily draw attention to myself. I want to earn a 5-star review from you after the wedding. I will do what it takes to give you a 5-star experience.
I believe that you deserve to look and feel amazing on your wedding day. I believe that you deserve to look back on your wedding and your photographs with real pride and true joy. I promise to do everything I can to deliver those feelings along with your photos.
I guarantee that you will be completely satisfied, even thrilled, with your wedding photography experience. If for any reason you are not satisfied, I will do what it takes to make it right with you - even refunding fees if necessary. I intend for you to be one of hundreds of happy clients who want to refer me to the people they love.
