“The key to a great photograph is timing, composition and light. When documenting a wedding our main goal is to capture the personalities of our clients and the spirit of the event.”
Hi and thank you for stopping by our site. We are wedding photographers with a passion for artistic imagery and capturing and documenting real moments. Our love story began in the darkroom, quite literally. We met while studying photography in Santa Barbara, got married right out of school and have been partners in our work, parenting, and most importantly in the life we have built together. Maintaining a photo studio in San Francisco and living in the Sonoma Wine Country we are extremely thankful; and still somewhat in awe; about what a great privilege it is to cover so many incredibly unique weddings.
From small backyard weddings, to mega events with more than 700 guests, our clientele is extremely diverse, but what they all have in common is a love of life and family . . . and an appreciation for great photography.
Our style is often described as a blend of wedding photojournalism and fine-art wedding photography. It is our goal to capture un-traditional wedding images that evoke emotion and are timeless. As documentary photographers, with a strong background in beauty and fashion photography, we let the wedding day unfold in a natural way to capture those special moments. Even though we spend most of the wedding day covering what is unfolding in front of us, we also like to spend a little time with our clients to create some special portraits. Most people are shy in front of the camera, our experience allows us to put our clients at ease, guiding them through poses that look natural and not contrite. It is our goal to create imagery that will hold up to the test of time and be a conduit to bringing back memories of one of the biggest events in the human experience.
We hope you enjoy browsing through our site and we look forward to hearing from you. You can visit us at our photography studio in Lower Pacific Heights of San Francisco or our home in the wine country.
Here is a list of things you should know about us:
We have been photographing weddings together since 2003 and been married for some time longer and still enjoy working together.
We are easy going, we believe the photographer should be unobtrusive. It’s your day, and we make sure you have fun and feel like a star.
We have two wonderful children. Meher volunteers by teaching art in our children’s school and is involved in many fundraising activities for the local schools when we are not shooting.
We both love to cook and are passionate about good food. Marcel is a “nature guy,” he likes to fly fish and does fly fishing photography. Meher loves art and paints when ever she can.
We believe in quality over quantity. That is why we only take a limited amount of assignments a year.
We design all our wedding albums ourselves using photographs picked by our clients. Before we go to print, our clients can view their wedding album proofs online and still can make some changes.
