Mischa Photography - Curtis Park: $65 for a 30-Minute Mini-Session Package with 8"x10" Print from Mischa Photography ($300 Value)

Digital technology has allowed for the introduction of many new art forms, just as Leonardo da Vinci once predicted on his blog. Upload a masterpiece with today’s Groupon: for $65, you get a mini-session package from Mischa Photography (a $300 value). Clients can combine two Groupons for a longer session, or multiple sessions, but may only redeem for one print. The package includes:

  • A 30-minute on-location mini-session photo shoot (a $150 value)
  • A retouched 8”x10” print (a $150 value)

Mini sessions are available at different locations on November 18, 19, 26, and 27, with a full list of times and places found by clicking the drop-down menu at the top of the online scheduler.

Mischa Purcell, president of the Professional Photographers of the Greater Bay Area, conducts Mischa Photography with an expertise apparent in his evocative family portraits and romantic couples shots. Shot at a panoply of prearranged times and locations around the Bay, the mini sessions provide a convenient means of festively celebrating family ties or a collection of identical elf costumes. Schedule a sitting on Friday, November 18, in Old Sacramento, Saturday, November 19, and Sunday, November 27, at Land Park, or Saturday, November 26, at McKinley Park. All locations will be relocated to inside the studio in case of inclement weather. Each compact portraiture session is a three-stage process, so clients schedule a 15-minute phone consultation (November 14–18, 21, and 22), half-hour photo session, and one-hour in-studio post-snapshottery viewing (November 28 and 29 and December 5, 6, 8, and 9). The three-stage process must be completed by December 10 for holiday prints. After selecting their favorite pose, families receive an 8”x10” print, great for hanging above a stocking-lined fireplace or a sock-lined washing machine.

November marks the grand opening of Mischa Photography’s Sacramento branch. A strict adherent to the demands of artistic vision, the camera clicker hews unflappably to self-set standards by digitally retouching every image, using museum-quality photo paper, and only drawing in Van Dyke beards when requested.

Mischa Photography

Looking back, Mischa and Brianne Purcell seem destined to have become photographers: Mischa was bitten by the shutterbug at the age of 8, when a family friend and photography professor first introduced him to the camera lens. Brianne started even earlier—when she was just 7, she put a camera on her Christmas list right when Santa had just secured the rights to manufacture celluloid. All these years later, the Purcells’ love of the art form hasn’t waned. They bring their enthusiasm and smiles to important events in people’s lives, including weddings.

As Mischa puts it in a video on his website, “It’s a true honor to be paid to create art around people’s love stories. It’s the best thing I could ever imagine doing.” This genuine passion comes through in his photographs. To capture the essence of each couple, the photographer thinks outside of the box. Aside from photos at the church, Mischa might have newlyweds pose in front of old buildings, on a truck bed, or simply in front of a bright blue sky. The photographers extend this sort of creativity to other types of sessions. They can photograph families in fields dotted by wildflowers or stay in their studio to carefully capture senior portraits. Mischa also shares his expertise during workshops, which teach the ins and outs of photography and postproduction.

He tickled us with humor and set a tone where we could relax and enjoy the shoot. Loved his candids as he captured the sparkle in the eye, the joking, and the natural chemistry of us.
