What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Matted Prints, Negatives, Prints, Proof CD of All Images, Thank You Cards, Video Montage
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Yes we do.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Absolutely! We photograph in available light, which means any light that is available ;)
Is your media preference film or digital?
We photograph 99% digitally, but Mischa learned on film and still has all the old cameras which he uses by request.
How many photographers do you work with?
There's always at least 2 photographers at any given wedding we photograph. Depending on the budget, that may include both Mischa & Brianne or it may be one of them plus someone in their network.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
We do book up to 2 events on a day with one person being guaranteed Mischa and the other Brianne unless of course the package includes both of them. We try not to book more than one wedding each per weekend, but there's usually one or two a year that we do.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Absolutely! As president of the Professional Photographers of the Greater Bay Area I am very well networked with most notable photographers in the area. Knock on wood, I've never had to call anyone though!
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Canon, 5+ camera bodies, all pro "L" lenses, lights, etc.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
I'd say 5+ bodies includes a backup or two ;)

We offer both options.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Yes, please inquire for rates.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We don't require anything per se, but if you want us to do our best work, we request that you seat us with your guests during dinner so we can eat when they eat and not miss anything and not get overly tired.
Do you charge for travel?
We charge for travel outside of California.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
2-3 weeks depending on the time of the year.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Online Proofing.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
We normally put them up for 30 days, but that can be extended at no extra charge.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes, but you do get the printing rights with the DVD.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
We do for our own promotional use, but we ask permission for anything beyond that.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
In most packages.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes.
What kind of albums do you offer?
Our current favorite is the Galleria, we also offer Cypress and several brands of Flush Mount albums. We've tried and used most of the companies out there, so if you have something else specifically in mind, please let us know and we can most likely get it for you.
When will the client get the final album?
There are many variables some of which are not in our control, but typically it will be anywhere from 3-6 months after image selection.

Mischa is an absolute amazing artist. He is capable of catching the emotions and feelings of moments and making others realize how fantastic those moments were.

I highly recommend Mishca and his beautiful Wife Brianne for any occasion and believe they will always deliver the best.

Mischa and Bri photographed my wedding and I am really happy with their work! Not only did they capture amazing photos, but they both have a really great energy! The husband and wife team works really well for them. From the first interaction I had with them through email all the way through receiving my photos (which were on time!) I had a very pleasant experience.

Mischa Photography is well worth every dollar spent! Oh, and every photo idea I sent was either captured or at least attempted. Be vocal about what you want and you shall receive!

Working with Mischa was very easy. He listened to what we wanted and even offered to help us with our wedding itinerary. He has a very distinct style that we were drawn to. We knew we wanted him to photograph our wedding. From our first meeting. Mischa's work is unique and made he helped make a stressful situation very smooth. I would absolutely recommend Mischa to anyone looking for a excellent wedding photographer.

You know all those mind blowing moments that you experience on your special day, and hope you remember forever... the way your husband swiped at his eyes with the back of his hand while you walked down the aisle, the toss of flower peddles against the sunlight as they drift down... well Mischa and Bri will do an amazing job of capturing every angle and giving you more that you ever expected in your wedding photos. Mischa took pictures I would never have thought about or have seen in other weddings shoots, and Bri captured the complimentary angle - them working side by side really differentiates them from other photographers we looked at. On top of that, they are more like friends than just another vendor helping with the wedding. I'd use them again in a heartbeat. I get goose bumps just thinking about the wedding album they did for us. Thanks Mischa and Bri!

I am the mother of the groom writing this review...I have to say it is a pleasure being able to tell people about Mischa. We live out of town and had nothing to do with the photographer pick so did not know what we would find the weekend of the wedding. I have heard some real nightmare stories about vendors and have to say I was a little nervous..afterall it isn't like you one can redo the moment the picture is shot. Well let me tell you Mischa and his staff were amazing..not only were the pictures wonderful and really captured the essence of the event but to have them around was pure delight...friendly, flexible, able to shoot people whether 4 or 94!! I am really trying to be helpful to any bride reading this as well as parents and I have to say while I do not write these reviews often this one is certainly a pleasure to do...this is one decision you will not regret just meet with them and you will understand what I am saying!!

I'm very thankful that Mischa and Bri were available to shoot my wedding and reception last minute.

It takes a perfect balance of equipment, skill and lots of experience to capture the emotion of the entire event the way they did. The lighting techniques that they used were beautiful.

They got the pictures back to us and posted online for our guests so fast, and their site makes it easy for people to order prints. On top of all that, they are both really nice, and easy to coordinate with.

Their photo booth added so much to our reception! I did my wedding on a very small budget, and a huge part of my budget went to photography and photo booth. It was one of the best decisions I made in the planning process. I cut corners on most of my expenses, but after doing a ton of research online, I learned that with wedding photography, you get what you pay for!

A bit last minute we decided to elope at San Francisco City Hall. Mischa Photography was super-flexible in giving us the last-minute booking, which luckily they had open because it was on a Thursday.

Mischa and Bri knew the location very well, which was a huge bonus for me because I am somewhat impatient with photo sessions (even those impromptu group photos with friends' cameras) and they were able to take us directly from ideal photo scene to the next very quickly. They each focus on a different type of shot, Bri doing more candid shots, so we had a really rounded variety of images between the two of them; both the classic formal shots and also some more fun informal ones.

They made it fun and comfortable to be in front of the camera (did I mention I am also a bit camera-shy?) and in the midst of the day their decisive creative vision took so much stress out of the entire logistics of the photos, letting me focus on being in the moment with my new husband.

They showed up a little bit early (which when you are getting married is great, as "right on time" is when you start to worry).

Finally, the pictures are amazing! I have yet to decide what all to order, there are so many great shots.

I love these guys! They photographed our wedding as well as the wedding of some very good friends and the results were outstanding. They're professional, charming, excellent shots and even brought a photo booth with a bunch of props and costume accessories. Their finish work is superb as well. The album they created for us is absolutely beautiful and we'll cherish it for ever.

Other than your spouse, the wedding photos are all you have left after the big day! Picking a photographer was TOPS on our list of to-dos! We heard about Mischa through one of our friends (a photographer himself) who had Mischa shoot his wedding. After looking at their website and shooting them an initial email, we knew we HAD to have them!! Best decision! Money well spent and what a bargain for the quality and experience that you get!! Not only do we have stunning photos of our day but they were the most awesome people too-true professionals but laid back and we really felt like we had known them for years! Please don't skimp for a cheap photographer - you get what you pay for and these guys have it all!! We couldn't be happier!!
