In April we had the pleasure to photograph Mark Seeger (Chairman and President of Mission Motorcycles) and Jit Bhattacharya (President of Mission Motors) for their media kit and world premier of the Mission R full electric motorcycles. These motorcycles are the latest addition to the electric vehicle revolution and are an amazing engineering miracle. With a range of up to 140 miles per charge, 0-60 mph in 3 seconds and a top speed of 150 miles, these superbikes are not only fun to ride, they will leave many gas slurping crotch rockets eating dust (dust only, since there is no exhaust!)

So sorry we have not been updating you in the last 4 months or so. It’s not you, it’s us. No, we are not breaking up with you, but we started a Facebook page, and you know how it goes. No, Facebook is not better than you, and yes they have issues too. But you have to understand, it somehow feels redundant to blog and Facebook at the same time. We have some new and great ideas for you, but we are so busy right now, so please be patient. We will be updating you, but in the meantime check out our FB page, it has all our recent weddings and engagement sessions, I think you’ll “Like Us” ;-)
We got to know Andrew and Jenni when they visited us in the wine county and were good sports about going to the local county Fair to shoot part of their engagement session there. Both are soft spoken and somewhat shy in front of the camera, but were willing to try anything. They got ready at the Intercontinental in San Francisco and said their vows at the historic St. Patricks Cathedral, the oldest church in San Francisco (1872). The bride and groom did not see each other before the ceremony but did charter a mini-bus to drive to the reception and stop along the way in the financial district to take some photos. The San Francisco City Club is gorgeous with its huge mural by Mexican artist Diego Rivera in the grand stairwell. We got to go to the roof with the couple and photograph them in the twilight hour with the SF skyline in the back. Very cool!
