  • Excellent service. Sergey was very flexible about the date and place for our engagement photoshoot which was very important for us. My husband wanted to have a photo session somewhere near the coastline, and Sergey surprised us with how knowledgeable he is about the good spots for the pictures in Maryland. Now we are going to have Sergey as our photographer for the wedding in July. Very excited about it!

  • We were so lucky that Sokolov Photography / Serge was available on our wedding day! Our communication was speedy and clear from the beginning. Serge is very talented, he went the extra mile (or two!) for us, was very approachable and accommodating, friendly and fun to be around as a person, worked with us on our budget, captured very candid moments, yet also got all of the important moments documented. Overall, it was such a pleasure to interact with him and our pictures look great. Everyone felt comfortable with him which is what you want form a photographer. I would highly, highly recommend him!

  • Breathtaking photographs and amazing service! Serge is a friendly, genuine, and hard-working photographer. He photographed my wedding ceremony at the courthouse followed by a photoshoot by the DC monuments. My family absolutely loved his work as he was a true professional and made photoshoot go so smooth! Serge helped us make beautiful memories of such an important day. We appreciate all the hard work he put into every picture! I would highly recommend his services to anyone who is looking for quality photographs and great service.

  • Serge was absolutely phenomenal! We had a small wedding at Bel Air, Maryland, and from the moment we met Serge, he made us feel so comfortable, even with all that wedding chaos around. I have a little understanding of how he did it, but while following us everywhere, he somehow managed to take stunning pictures of all the quests in the wedding. Before the reception, some of our plans went badly wrong, there was a delay in catering, but he made his best to make everyone smile and feel relaxed. He always went an extra mile to help us with technical and organizational issues, always listened to us and brought SO MANY superb ideas for pictures that I would think that this person's been working in the industry for at least a century. And yes - above all, we had fun even during our pre-wedding consultations where Serge got to know our personalities to make us at ease. I promise you will not be disappointed. If you are looking for the right person for your bid day - be sure, you found him

  • Great photographer. He covered our engagement at C & O Canal and served as our lead photographer at the wedding reception and ceremony. Very well done, well organized and very passionate about what he is doing. Highly recommended. Thankfully, Victor

  • This is our second photo shoot with Sokolov Photography team - we worked with them when we had a birthday party for my friend in June, and in December 2018 we had an engagement photo shoot at National Mall in DC. We really wanted Serge to be our photographer for our upcoming wedding but unfortunately, he was already booked! Both sessions with this guy were absolutely amazing. Super professional, easy going, Serge made all of us feel very comfortable. My fiance was trying to convince me that engagement photo shoot is not a good idea but after a photo session, he changed his mind completely. And when we received the pictures, he admitted that he was definitely wrong! Photos are simply magical, Serge managed to create an impressively huge set of lifetime memories for us. Our concern was that the National Mall was very crowded on that day. But somehow Serge took all the pictures in some mystical way so among all the people around it feels like there is no one in the whole world exc... Read more

  • We really enjoyed working with Serge Sokolov! He met with us in person before we signed the contract to go over his offerings and help us understand what it might be like working with his company. We liked his portfolio and loved that all of the options came with full digital rights. The day of the event he arrived on time and hit the ground running. He and his partner got along well with our guests and we enjoyed a number of the shots he pushed us on (I wasn't crazy about stuffing my face with cotton candy—but now I'm happy I did it). We were really pleasantly surprised by his amazingly fast turnaround of our photos as well. It's not even a month and we have all of our photos back, ready to share with friends and fam. I've already recommended Serge to others getting married in the near future.

  • I thought that it will take two weeks for Serge to release the album. But he was fast and sent me within first week. It was fun working with him and we enjoy the final results of it. We appreciate the enthusiasm and passion Serge have for his photography. And we are satisfied with the photos. We have shared the album with friends and family. I would not thank him enough for the service! Keep up the good work!

  • I would say Serge (I always misspelled his name, hopefully finally I did it right) is a world-class photographer, at least when it comes to a wedding. My partner and I had a wedding in Aberdeen, MD at the end of February which is totally not the best time for such an event. But even though the weather was disgusting, our pictures turned out to be filled with light, joy, and fun! My husband and I never liked being in front of a camera, but the way how Serge navigated us and gave us clear directions on what to do and how to pose was so easy and relaxing. He encouraged us to pose, to do some funny stuff but being yourself at the same time which was amazing! Serge also control the crowds during the group pictures, and obviously, every single person at the wedding enjoyed his work. What I appreciate the most is how patient this guy was. My nephew is an extremely active 9-year old boy who was jumping and running around while Serge was taking pictures. Was it a problem for him? Not at ... Read more

  • Hiring Sokolov Photography for our wedding was truly one of the best decision we made. We had a vibrant, old-style wedding at Joppatown waterfront, and now we have a brilliant reminiscence of this special day - thanks to Serge! He puts us at ease, helped us and our guests to pose and even though some of our family members are not big fans of photo shooting, no one felt shy or awkward. He did his job in a fascinating, sometimes even self-sacrificing manner as he made some shots from the angle that put him at risk of falling down from the pier. As a result: the pictures are stunning, EVERY single photo tells a story so all the time when I look at the album I remember exactly how I felt in the moment. Thank you and good luck, Serge! Your job was incredible.

  • We worked with Serge last summer for the birthday photo shoot of my little brother, so right after the proposal, we booked him immediately for the wedding. And it was such a blast! Serge captured those tiny little moments of the day that we'd forget otherwise, and the pictures caught everyone's personality just perfect! He took remarkable candid photographs of us and our guests too, all while remaining unobtrusive, kind and really really fun - I would invite Serge for the wedding one more time only for his jokes and the way he made everyone laugh. So if you're looking for professionalism, amazing pics and fun - you found it.

  • Such an incredible experience! We had engagement session taken with Serge in August and I wanted to take a moment to give him a five-star review (even though he certainly deserves all ten stars!) The photography was very easy and relaxed, and Serge was very professional: even though we brought our dog to the photoshoot, he somehow made our little monster be a true photo model!. As a result, we have a bunch of very colorful and meaningful pictures! Thank you, Serge!

  • We know Serge for three years and what we are certain about is that he is number one when it comes to capturing the great moments of your life. In 2016 he was shooting our corporate event, and we simply fell in love with the way how easy and funny he treated everyone in our company. In a year he was our photographer at the engagement session, and after that, we enjoyed his fascinating work at our wedding in Monticello lake. He is genuine, polite and very very funny, so he was the true gem of our wedding! Thank you, Serge, and I hope to work with you again!

  • Serge was awesome! We hired him on (after a ton of research) to do our engagement and wedding photos. He was always high energy, creative, and very passionate about his work. During the shoots he would make jokes and keep the mood up, making us feel more comfortable and relaxed. It was clear he had a finely crafted sense of perspective as he was always searching for the best shots and was relentless in finding them. He worked with us for the entire wedding day (from morning til the next day) with an assistant photographer, all over DC and Alexandria to get the shots we wanted. Afterwards, we received our photos in 2.5 weeks and they turned out amazing! He's even providing a USB with all of our digital pictures for free, which many photographers are hesitant to do. We were very lucky to have found Serge and cannot recommend him enough!

  • Since our first pre-wedding consultation we already knew we were in good hands. Serge was our lead photographer during our engagement shoot at DC Union Station and wedding day in September. Serge acted very professional, he didn't only take the excellent pictures, but he also helped us to stay on schedule in this horribly hectic day. Serge helped us to control the crowd and gave us clear directions for group photos. As a result - the group photo session was done in a minute, but the amount and quality of pictures were nothing less but impressive!
