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!)

We are truly honored to have one of our images chosen as the Best of the Best 2012 at Junebug Weddings. This year Junebug had almost 7000 entries from 39 different countries!

In the 2010 International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP) winter competition Marcel placed three images. This is truly an international competition with some of the best wedding photographers from around the world, so it’s always an honor to place some pics.
This fun image of Samira and Faraz’s wedding placed 7th in the “Movement and Motion” category
This image of Sharon and Chadd’s San Francisco Engagement session placed 4th in the “Engagement” Category.
This image of Susanne And Noah’s ceremony placed 11th in the “Humor” category.
We almost forgot to post this. In the last International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP) competition Meher placed three images among the top 20 and Marcel snuck one in as well. This is truly an international competition with some of the most creative and talented wedding photographers from around the world, so it’s always an honor to place some pics.
Meher placed this fun shot of our good friend Scott and Phyllis in the “First Dance” Category.
This is one of Meher’s from Jacqui and Luke’s that placed in the Bridal Party Category.
Another one from Jacqui and Luke’s wedding that placed in the “Wedding Dress” Category.

We recently entered some images in a photographic contest held by the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP). Both of us placed two images each! This is quite an honor since the ISPWP is a truly international wedding photography organization whose members are the most elite and sought after wedding photographers in the world. Below are the images that placed…………..
Meher placed this in the “Getting Ready” category. A great moment from Alison and Matt’s wedding. Alison is opening a gift Matt had sent to her room, while her bridesmaids and flower girl look on in awe.
Meher placed this in the “Location” category. This shot was taken at Juli and Mason’s gorgeous Napa Valley wedding at the Harvest Inn in St. Helena. The open air chandeliers were just the coolest. There is something really theatrical about this shot.
Marcel placed this one in the “Bridal Portrait” category. This high key portrait of beautiful Katie Babb (our Broadway Bride) was taken in a small hallway of a house at Sea Ranch. The little hallway had a great light, but if you saw it, you would have a hard time imagining that this shot was taken in such a location!
This shot of Marcel’s placed first in the “Reception” category! You’ve gotta to love these enthusiastic girls.
Recently Meher and I were invited to be guests on a TV show called “Women Now” to share some photography tips with their audience. Women Now is a new lifestyle TV talk show covering a broad range of issues concerning South East Asian women. Since we are more used to being behind the camera than in front of it, we were a little nervous at first, but hosts Ena, Jaya, Sippi and Harbir made us feel at home and we soon forgot all about being on a TV set. Women Now is airing on TV Asia and some local channels and will start airing on KTSF some time in September.
Ena, Jaya, Sippi and Harbir thank you so much for having us, we had a blast. We wish you all the best and much success with your show. If you want to find out more about their show you can check out their website at womennow.tv
