We promised you the last installment of Lesley and Michael’s fabulous San Francisco elopement – so here it is with all of it’s beautiful details! Here’s the first segment if you missed it – these two know how to elope in style! We finished up at the Ritz Carlton and took some dreamy pictures of our couple out and about in San Francisco before heading over to the Westin St. Francis for their intimate ceremony.

Michael and Lesley’s portrait session got off to a sleek start when this beautiful car rolled up! Nothing better than a vintage Rolls Royce to chauffeur you around San Francisco!

After a two-year engagement, these two were more than ready to tie the knot! They didn’t need anyone but each other on their big day.


We were so lucky to have beautiful weather and perfect light! Lesley felt the same way when she said, “We feel blessed that we’ve made it through the last few years and we look forward to this special day! Blessed that everything is falling into place on such short notice! From Virgin America, Ritz Carlton, vintage Rolls Royce for the wedding- we have our traditional, classy, elegant, romantic day all coming together. Looks like even Mother Nature is going to gift us with beautiful weather!”

We couldn’t ask for a more stunning bride! Her sleek updo and glam jewelry are the perfect accessories for that amazing dress!

Such a fab bouquet! Romantic and modern at the same time

Such iconic images! These portraits near the Golden Gate Bridge are beyond words – it’s something out of a magazine! Truly timeless.

Lesley and Michael prove that regardless of size, a ceremony space can still have great impact! This beautiful alcove in the Westin St. Francis was adorned with floating candles and white flowers that make the already opulent space sparkle!


Sometimes a bride and groom can get so wrapped up in the moment it feels like they are the only two people in the room, but for Lesley and Michael it’s a reality! We love that they took the time to celebrate each other with flair.

Another happy ending for another wonderful twosome! We wish you all the best! xo xo – Tinywater

We are SO excited for Myra and Anthony’s upcoming wedding, because we loved shooting their San Francisco engagement shoot so much! These high school lovebirds have been together for 15 years, and are just tying the knot! Here’s a little peek at some of the highlights from their day with us:






Lesley and Michael are a special pair of lovebirds for us; their elegant San Francisco elopement at the Ritz Carlton was a tribute to their love, the happy ending after a few years of ups and downs, and the old-world charm of their favorite stateside city. Even though their guest list was small (count of two!) they spared no expense on the wedding details they cared about. Location: the ever-gorgeous Ritz Carlton and its elegant architecture, Ride: vintage Rolls Royce, Shoes: Manolo Blahnik! We think they’ve got the right priorities!

We love to see the ring bling! That’s some serious jewelry, sister!

We love this shade of ivory for our bride – it made her skin look lovely and flawless! And what swanky affair would it be without some Manolos to walk down the aisle in?

Love love love the bride’s makeup for the big day! She went with peachy pinks and dark liner to accent her gorgeous eyes.


Bejeweled detailing on the bouquet will go nicely with Lesley’s sparkling wedding rings! Those soft ivory and blush colors are perfect for their elegant nuptials.

All that’s left is the dress!

Nothing could be more elegant than some delicate lace in a modern cut! And the bride’s pearls are a wonderful extra detail.

This twosome spared no expense for their small affair, but Lesley let us in on a secret,  ”I’ve planned 4 million dollar weddings for clients, and I can honestly say- our wedding for just the two of us will mean more to us than any 4 million dollar wedding ever could.” They tug on our heartstrings!



We asked Lesley about the relationship that she and Michael share:  ”Mike has been married before and yet has the love and faith that this is IT and I’m the ONE. We have been through more in the last few years than some people go through in a lifetime.” Sounds like these two don’t have any pre-wedding jitters, only excitement and hope for the future!


Coming up is more of their gorgeous ceremony at the Ritz Carlton in San Francisco, their intimate ceremony, and fabulous shoot with a vintage Rolls Royce! You won’t want to miss it!

We have some major eye candy with this next shoot all the way from New Orleans! Amy and Dennis are New Orleans natives, and we shot their beautiful wedding back in 2008. Their wedding was part traditional, part jaw-dropping high fashion, sprinkled with some New Orleans flavor. We jumped at the chance to photograph them again in their native surroundings and capture the softer side of this party city!


We can feel the sparks fly! Four years hasn’t dimmed the crazy love these two feel for each other!

Ooh la la! We love a good romantic rendezvous – especially one so stylish! Nude pumps, floral skirt, vintage-style bag…. we’re so stealing Amy’s outfit!

You can’t go to New Orleans and not see a marching band! Thankfully we were able to pose with this one – they aren’t going anywhere!

How cute are these two! It was hard to find a picture that didn’t have a goofy facial expression, we were having too much fun!

Amy and Dennis remind me of an old Hollywood couple – don’t they look like they are about to break into song or waltz away?

Anniversary shoots are some of our favorite – a chance to catch up with the wonderful clients we left as newlyweds!

Break for cuddling! A chill in the air is a great excuse for some closeness.

Even though Amy and Dennis are natives, we love the destination feel of New Orleans – if only we could shoot here all the time! If you think these photos are awesome, you should check out their “day after” photos from 2008 – so fabulous!

I love that we’re seeing the romantic, slightly french side of New Orleans with its graceful weathered details and lush landscapes. While the beads, bright colors, and raunchy side of NOLA is always fun, this view is much more refreshing! Amy and Dennis didn’t want any cliche “tourist” photos, and we’re more than happy to oblige!

Aren’t happy endings the best?? We can’t wait to see what the future holds for these star-crossed lovers; maybe in another four years there will be new adventures to photograph! We wish you two the best!!
