  • We couldn't have been happier with Alex and Anastasiia! They regularly touched base with us before our wedding which made us feel that they were completely on top of things - and they were! They were on time, professional, and made us feel so comfortable. They did an amazing job at the wedding and we couldn't be happier with our photos and with them. Many of our guests said that Alex and Anastasiia felt like they were part of the family at the wedding and were dancing right along with us.

    Thank you so much for your kind words, Haleigh!

  • We did a photoshoot with Alex and he was great! Easy to work with and very receptive to feedback. We scheduled one session with our dogs at Sligo Creek Park and we got some great shots. However, our dogs quickly lost interest and made it tough to proceed so Alex offered to do a whole additional session in another setting in the city. In addition to his flexibility, the pics came out great! We can't wait to share them with our family and friends!

  • Alex and Anastasiia were an absolute delight to work with, and honestly the MVP vendor of our entire wedding (and the rest of them were great too!). When people told us their thoughts on our wedding, most of them commented (unprompted) on how great the photographers were. Alex and Anastasiia get a combination of posed and documentary-style candid shots, and each and every one of them is STUNNING. When I look through our wedding album all I can think of is how well they captured how fun the day was and also "damn, they made us look GOOD!" This is not to mention that they are timely, professional, kind, creative, fun, and always prepared. 10/10, would hire again/recommend to anyone. https://polyakovphotography.com/stone-tower-winery-wedding/

  • I HATE taking pictures but Alex and Anastasiia made me feel very comfortable on my wedding day. It was like hanging out with best friends all night! They are very genuine, down to earth people who are extremely talented! You can tell they LOVE what they do! We could see the creative juices flowing despite the fact that we didn’t want to do a lot of posing. They captured all the special moments during our wedding and did a phenomenal job! For the price of one, you get two photographers who are married and understand the beauty of what they’re capturing. They delivered the photos during the time frame given and are very respectful of your time! They were never late for a phone call, arrived to the venue early and left later than agreed. Best experience ever! Oh! And they deliver your photos in such a special way!

  • Alex and Anastasiia were an absolute dream. They went above and beyond from start to finish, helped my very camera-shy husband feel at ease, and did a truly amazing job capturing our special day. Photography was one of my top 3 in terms of priority vendors and I went down a serious internet rabbit hole researching photographers. My husband and I both couldn't be happier with our decision to hire Polyakov Photography and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great photographer in the DC area.

  • This couple duo is fire! Seriously, they did an amazing job with our engagement shoot, helping us plan for the wedding with a very detailed timeline and making the big day super fun! They just sent us our "sneak peak" of shots from our wedding on October 12, 2019. They really care about their craft, their communication is great, they are flexible yet also very organized. They made our first look shoot seamless, I was a little nervous about how it would all work but It was perfect! They used apple walkie-talkie feature to coordinate the exact timing of everything, it was so cute to watch them. When it came time to do pre wedding pictures with the bridal party they made it fun with little games and funny cues for various poses. After our pictures I didn’t notice them at all....until dancing started! They are also great dancers and they will go to great lengths for a shot! My family loved seeing Alex's dance moves!

  • I am absolutely in love with the results of a creative photoshoot that Polyakov Photography did for Igor and I. They made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and had endless ideas for our shots. You can really feel our love when you look at the pictures - they really know how to capture the moment. I would highly recommend them for your engagement shoot, wedding shoot, or just a fun shoot on a Saturday afternoon. I can't wait to share our pictures with everyone! Thank you, Alex & Anastasiia!

  • I researched 50+ photographers in the metro DC area and I am so glad I decided to go with Polyakov Photography. The quality of their photos, the value you receive, the professionalism and how they accommodate all surpassed my expectations. Thank you again, Alex and Anastasiia!

  • You will never find a nicer couple of photographers. It was such a pleasure working with Alex and Anastasiia. They have such a vibrant energy and made sure we had knew how to pose and that the big day was captured without a hitch. Their work is beautiful, and they bring a wonderful mix of innovative shots and classic portrait photography. You will not be disappointed, nor will you find a harder working or more personable and talented set of photographers.

  • When my then-fiancé (now husband) and I started researching wedding photographers, we knew we needed the best. We wanted our special day to be captured perfectly so that we could look back and remember the joy, excitement, and love we felt on our wedding day. After combing through Polykov Photography's website and seeing examples of their work, we knew they would be perfect. We loved the vibrant colors, how they captured emotion and movement, and how they framed their shots. We met Alex early on just to make sure we were a right fit. He spent over an hour chatting with us answering all of our questions. We could immediately see that Alex was patient, kind, and knowledgeable, and his passion for photography just jumped out at us, and that's exactly what we wanted in a photographer. Alex and Anastasiia did our engagement photo shoot at the National Harbor. The weather was very uncooperative, but they were extremely flexible and rescheduled a couple of times just so that we could... Read more

  • We highly recommend Polyakov Photography for your wedding. They took so many amazing and creative photos, they were accommodating to our schedules coming from out of town, and they stayed in touch throughout the months leading up to the big day. Everyone who has seen our engagement and wedding photos has been blown away by the quality and artistic eye. Their passion for photography shined throughout our time with them, and they seemed to be genuinely excited to edit our photos and deliver something we would love. Anastasiia and Alex were a delight to work with. We are both naturally a bit camera shy but they helped us have fun with it on our initial engagement shoot and it didn't take long for us to trust their recommendations for different poses and ideas. We are having a hard time narrowing down which pictures to order from them because we love so many different shots. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Alex and Anastasiia, from the first phone call to receiving our wedding... Read more

  • Alex and Anastasiia Polyakov are a photography match made in heaven. We were so excited for our highlights album that we downloaded each picture on our honeymoon. Each new picture that they post to our highlights album is a gift. They are daring artists and photographic geniuses. We can not wait to see the entire album. The images that they captured during our engagement shoot and wedding day comprised of a documentary approach that made for phenomenal and detailed shots. They were also imperative in coordinating our very private and personal first look before the wedding ceremony. Their editing approach is incredibly detailed and sophisticated. This made for resplendent finished photos that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. During the engagement shoot and full-day of wedding pictures, they never made us or attendees uncomfortable with their documentation of the day. Throughout the wedding night, I rarely noticed that they were there. They are not only fantastic at portrait sh... Read more

  • Alex and Anastasiia are a dynamic team of photographers, who are as great to work with as they are talented. They were responsive and easy to communicate with, gave us complete peace of mind in the time going up to the wedding. We were nervous for our engagement shoot and they made it fun and relaxed, getting amazing photos while making it easy. For the wedding, they use what they call a "documentary approach", somehow always being there for important moments without being intrusive. They jumped with us on the dancefloor and shared in our excitement. And most importantly, the photographs they captured are truly amazing. I can't stop looking at how beautifully they documented our day.

  • I can't say enough great things and thank yous for our perfect photoshoot day with Anastasiia! She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and was truly a pleasure to work with. She was flexible with our plans, going from a courthouse ceremony in Rockville to a photoshoot in DC with the Cherry Blossoms and Monuments. The photoshoot location was crowded, but you could never tell from our pictures. She even made suggestions for locations and picked the perfect blossoms to photograph with. Our pictures came out amazing, as she captured our excitement and love :)

  • What can I say that hasn't already been said? Alex and Anastasiia are amazing. My husband and I are so happy with our engagement and wedding photos. Everyone has commented on how lovely our pictures are and how much they captured the love, fun, and excitement of our wedding and us as a couple. Alex and Anastasiia made us feel so comfortable and they were so much fun! They were also very responsive and flexible. I also loved the reaction shots they got from everyone at the wedding so we didn't miss any important moments. Looking through our photos is like re-living the wedding all over again. The pictures are bright, clear, colorful, and they have a lot of heart. We cannot recommend Polyakov Photography enough. Amazing. Amazing. Amazing. HIRE THEM!
