One of my favorites from this weekend's mini sessions: Valerie, Brent and Josie!

We just can’t help sharing a few more of our favorites from Karen and Mike’s Tinywater San Francisco wedding photography and portrait session. We started with a few inside the Old First Presbyterian Church after their ceremony and then ventured out into the city streets with their wedding party.

The second level in Old First Presbyterian church was perfect for capturing some intimate bride and groom portraits and unique San Francisco wedding photography inside the church. The high ceiling with exposed wood beams and the stained glass windows made for fun textures as a backdrop to the newlywed couple.

We took to the graffiti filled alleyways of San Francisco with Karen and Mike’s wedding party for some bridesmaid and groomsmen group photos. Tinywater loves taking San Francisco wedding photography because the possibilities of location are endless in this city!

We can’t help but laugh at this series of Karen making Mike’s funny faces. These two were up for anything to capture unique San Francisco wedding photography and portraits!

The bridge in the background was fun to play around with for a touch of unique San Francisco architecture.

We had to capture one of the San Franciscan couple under the Embarcadero sign! How can you not love this city with all of its unique landmarks and public art sculptures?

This wedding party was so giddy and ready to celebrate Karen and Mike’s wedding day! So many laughs and giggles as we rounded up their groomsmen and bridesmaids for these group portraits.

Can you see the wedding party peeking through this bus stop? We couldn’t help but use the city bus stops and parks as our personal San Francisco wedding photography props!

After a small playdate in the park, we borrowed some hula hoops as a fun frame for Karen and Mike’s San Francisco wedding photography.

Another beautiful bride and groom portrait captured through this San Francisco puddle. We love the sky at sunset as the backdrop for these couple portraits! As we come to a close on Karen and Mike’s posts, we have to thank them for allowing us to be such a big part of their very special wedding day.

As Karen and Mike’s San Francisco wedding photographer, Tinywater couldn’t wait to capture their wedding day memories! They opted for a traditional church ceremony at Old First Presbyterian Church located at 1751 Sacramento Street in San Francisco.

Good lighting is a key component for us as a San Francisco wedding photographer, and the high ceilings, chandeliers, and numerous stained glass windows created beautiful light within Old First Presbyterian Church.

Mike in a quiet moment as he waits for the wedding ceremony to start. Karen’s father is a pastor and not only walked her down the aisle, but performed their wedding ceremony as well.

Karen walks down the aisle by pews of their closest family and friends. With 100 guests in attendance, the church ceremony was intimate and beautiful.

After the church ceremony, we followed Karen and Mike to their favorite restaurant in the city, Town Hall. Town Hall restaurant is located at 342 Howard Street, and serves mostly new American cuisine on their seriously mouthwatering menu.

Inside the restaurant were long family style tables set for the couple’s wedding reception. The decor was a fresh take on rustic style with quirky posters, art, and chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. As their San Francisco wedding photographer, we loved being introduced to this new restaurant venue.

Another peek at more of Karen’s DIY paper products. Our favorite was the tiny thank you note on each guest place setting, which was very personal and made us feel so special that we were included in this wedding celebration as Karen and Mike’s San Francisco wedding photographer.

As we captured important moments including the first dance and wedding toasts, we could feel the love in the room as Karen and Mike’s reception carried on through the night.

Karen and Mike had a groom’s smoking lounge for all of their friends set up at their Town Hall wedding reception. It was a nice treat for the guests to enjoy as the dinner came to an end and fun ensued. Next post we will show a few more of our favorite portraits and group photos we took as Karen and Mike’s San Francisco wedding photographer on their big day.

Featured: Micah & Ryan on The Sweetest Occasion

February 27th, 2012

We’re so happy that Micah and Ryan’s San Francisco engagement shoot has been featured on The Sweetest Occasion! The Sweetest Occasion is a wedding and lifestyle blog devoted to event design and pretty details for celebrating stylish events, weddings and special occasions. Head on over to The Sweetest Occasion to see more from Micah and Ryan’s engagement photo session!

We gave you guys a little sneak peek from Karen and Mike’s 2010 Tinywater wedding and now we’re going to reveal the rest of their gorgeous San Francisco wedding photos! Karen and Mike got married at Old First Presbyterian church in a traditional ceremony followed by a fun DIY reception at their favorite San Francisco restaurant, Town Hall San Francisco.

Karen was an amazing hands on DIY bride, and with the help of her brother, did all of the paper details herself! Yes, all of the paper, including the save the dates, invitations, menus, escort cards, and individual guest table settings. We can’t wait to show more of her handy work in our next post. Her mason jar theme was the perfect amount of vintage and rustic, and her mason jar stamp helped tie the theme together on the paper goods.

Having a few hours to get ready with the bride and groom is so important to us because capturing San Francisco wedding photos leading up to the big first glance and ceremony can really help to tell the couple’s wedding day story.

Seeing Karen walk through San Francisco’s busy streets was a definite head turner – she is gorgeous!

Karen excitedly on her way and Mike anxiously awaiting their first glance moment! The emotion and expression in these San Francisco wedding photos are priceless.

So happy to finally see each other on their wedding day. The narrative quality of these first glance photos are so fun and some of our favorites. Karen was all smiles as we got ready to trek through the city with the wedding party for some city portraits.

Do you love the San Francisco sunlight as much as we do? The consistent fog really helps diffuse the light perfectly, creating a great setting for wedding day portraits outside. Next up we will showcase some of the San Francisco wedding photos from Karen and Mike’s traditional Old First Presbyterian church ceremony and then make our way to Karen’s DIY Town Hall restaurant reception. Plus, a few more of their bride and groom portraits that we just had to share!

We’ve been dying to share some of our favorite portraits from Jess and Eddy’s Cornerstone Sonoma wedding! Jess and Eddy fell in love with Cornerstone’s unique gardens, where the venue asked some of the best landscape architects to design a section of the property. This resulted in a diverse collection of fun corners and nooks to play around in during our wedding day portrait session as their Sonoma wedding photographer!

The wedding party was fun and glamourous in teal bridesmaid dresses and light blue ties tucked into dark gray suits.

Jess describes her and Eddy as ‘nerdy’, and we love it! They even had a friend dressed up as Chewbacca make a surprise appearance for a personal twist on what is usually a more traditional day. Jess puts her nerdiness to good use and is the co-founder at one of our favorite websites, Polyvore! It was hard for anyone to keep a straight face hanging out with Jess and Eddy at their Sonoma wedding. They are so laid back and funny, we wished we could have spent more than a day with them!

The Cornerstone Sonoma wedding was incredible, especially with so many lush gardens to choose from and explore. The mix of flora and textures was endless – a dream location for Sonoma wedding photographers like Tinywater!

Gorgeous natural wine country sun and incredible large scale art installations and sculptures? We are still completely smitten with the Cornerstone Sonoma Gardens!

After the ceremony, Jess swapped out her high heels for more comfortable and cool combat boots! We were swooning over the black kick butt boots contrasting with her soft and frilly wedding gown.

The pinwheel flower garden is one of our favorite spots inside this Cornerstone Sonoma wedding! Designed by Ken Smith, these plastic pink pinwheels are an unexpected whimsical touch to the gardens.

The light filtering through these leaves was amazing for Jess and Eddy’s couple portraits. They are so sweet together!

We ended their portrait session and their Sonoma wedding day inside this Cornerstone Sonoma pipe! We love the silhouette the backlit couple creates inside the pipe frame. Tinywater can’t thank Jess and Eddy enough for inviting us on to be their Sonoma wedding photographer, and we can’t wait to see what they have in store for their future together!
