Jaime Viera is an international, award-winning wedding photographer based in Sonoma, California. Jaime discovered a love for photography while pursuing her passion for traveling the world. On each trip she returned with an impressive collection of images - capturing the spirit of the world, it's people, and their cultures. Jaime earned a degree in Genetics and Biochemistry from the University of Otago in New Zealand to satisfy her thirst for knowledge of nature, life and how things work. Jaime's science background and her deep humanity is now manifest through the images she captures. By taking a step back to watch how the world works, she carefully composes life's subtle details to tell a complete story in a single image. Jaime, Dennis and their son, Alex travel all over the world photographing people making life commitments to each other, and in the process their relationship with each other becomes stronger. When she's got some down-time, Jaime is likely to be spending it with her family. In 2013, the family bought a three-acre property 45 minutes north of San Francisco and in that time have converted it into a family farm with alpacas, sheep, chickens, bees, a 2000 square foot garden, and 100 grapevines. Jaime loves reading historical fiction, eating dangerously spicy cuisine, growing her own food, hiking with her friends, sipping red wine, and asking lots of questions.

This is very good seeing by the photographer. The spill on the jacket tells a fun story in a great moment that lacks a face! Very well shot.
Just a great little moment and a nice personality profile of the little ladies. I really liked this picture – great feeling to it.
I liked the body language of the bride, clean composition – the photographer lensed the image well and caught a fun photo of the bride enjoying herself.
I kept coming back to this picture. The color and lighting is great, and I just think the photographer captured something significant with what this poor child is being subjected to. The composition is nice with all the hands as entry points into the photo.
This is a wonderful, serene and joyful scene. The harmony, the women and the ambience give us the impression of a timeless picture.
Nice fun feeling, captured at just the right moment. I love how the bride's arm points into the frame and to the guy's face.
The emotion out of this one is fantastic. It's a little hot over the one shoulder, but I love the emotion of the two men looking at the ring. It's a genuine moment and doesn't look posed.
You can't help thinking did they not get enough food at the wedding? Nevertheless, an interesting picture of the groom devouring and bride with look of disgust.
Don't know if this is the bride and groom, but her look is one of, "I just married this guy? Lord help me." He obviously loves his tacos. I won't call it a sweet moment, but it is a storytelling moment. The background also adds a lot of information to the image. This one should have been sharper. The lack of focus hurts it.
The hairspray couldn't be any closer to her head. Wonderful how the light catches the plume of hairspray smoke. I can smell the fumes just looking at this!

Using Viera Photographics was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. From the first conversation we had with you, we could tell that you were friendly, easygoing people who just like to take great pictures and make your clients happy. You are all about getting to know us and our relationship so that you could give us exactly what we wanted. On our wedding day you were flexible, fun and extremely easy to work with. Not that we ever had any doubts, but the pictures came out ABSOLUTELY PERFECT. I have seen many people unhappy with their wedding photos--thanks to you guys, we were thrilled with the pictures...and happy to have two new friends. We love you both and recommend you wholeheartedly!!!
