  • 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.

  • We had such a wonderful experience with Sokolov Photography! They did redo of our wedding photo session. We had such a terrible photographer on our wedding day and we had to do another photo session after the wedding. Sokolov Photography agreed to organize it for us in a short notices. The photographer was very creative and enthusiastic and the pictures turned out to be fantastic! I highly recommend Mr. Sokolov, he is the best! Choose your photographer wisely to avoid having second photo session after the wedding...

  • After we signed our marriage paperwork (elopement) Serge took photos of my wife and I. We greatly appreciated his flexibility on short notice, and were pleased with the final product. The photographic setting was a public place, and he did a good job of managing the lighting conditions, and findings tasteful backgrounds and poses. We got our photos back in a timely manner, conveniently accessibly in digital format. He provided a very good quality of work, with professional and friendly service.

  • Serge did a fantastic job capturing my 40th birthday party. He was quick to respond to my initial inquiry, we got a contract in place quickly, was extremely professional (and fun) during the event, and most importantly, delivered photos that exceeded my expectations. Shortly after the event, I received a link with a password to view all of my images and download them and paid via PayPal. I highly recommend Solokov Photography if you are in the market for someone to cover your event!

  • We had a fantastic experience with Serge at our wedding on 11/06/2016! He was on time, and brimming with ideas! However, not only did he have great picture ideas, he'd actually listen to me if I said "Eh, maybe not that one." or wanted something cheesy for myself. He really made me feel like I was the one who mattered. The pictures came out beautifully! His prices are super reasonable, and he was willing to work with us on our package. We had already had our engagement photos done with another photographer, so he added an extra hour to our package instead of doing and engagement photo session. The pictures came back in 8 weeks even with the holidays falling smack in the middle of that time frame! I'm very happy with Serge, and would recommend him to friends and family alike!

  • Wow, its hard to even know how to put this in words! Serge was the most amazing photographer we could have ever asked for. We watched Serge take photos at a friend's wedding and knew he had to be our photographer once we saw the way he had fun interacting with everyone and the beautiful photos he took! He took both our engagement photos and our wedding photos, all the way from getting ready at 3 PM to post reception photos at 11 PM. I don't even know if he stopped to eat, he was non stop! He even brought an assistant to take photos of my husband and his groomsmen getting ready so that he could take photos of myself and my bridesmaids before the ceremony. He has such a creative eye, and can think on the spot of how to capture a beautiful photo! He is also so fun, and my bridal party really enjoyed taking pictures with him! I absolutely loved our engagement photos and can't wait to see our wedding photos! Serge is the best!

  • OUTSTANDING! Serge is a phenomenal photographer. I got married 7/3/16 and he and his team were on point the entire time! They went above & beyond the call of duty, but what impressed me the most was when he STOPPED TRAFFIC to get the shot I had requested. The cars went around him which I found AWESOME! He's so good he held the camera backwards as he continued to walk forward so he wouldn't miss anything. He has never-ending energy WHICH IS A GREAT THING. He's such a joy to be around, our family & friends LOVED him. They're still talking about the funny camera man. Serge clearly LOVES what he does, and his team was fantastic. My advice to future brides, DON'T SCOFF AT PRICE if you want the best then pay for the best and Sokolov Photography is THE BEST. Serge you and your team did an AMAZING job, I can't wait to see the pictures. I'll be calling on you for future celebrations. My hat's off to you my friend, CHEERS!

  • I had a big Birthday Party and i wanted to have a professional photographer to keep the memories. I was referred to Sokolov Photography by a colleague and it was just a blast. Sergey and Kate they were so much fun to work with, they were professional and creative and all the pictures that they took were just stunning. It really felt like they are my friends and they easily blended into the party and took all the awesome pictures of my guests. I am really happy they were my photographers and i would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants to keep the memories through the pictures and have lots of fun at the same time.

  • Serge was truly awesome to work with. I never thought I would say this, but he actually made taking pictures enjoyable. He was extremely laid back and kept us laughing the whole time; he was a big hit with the wedding party, the parents, and all of the other guests.. And of course, the important part is that the pictures turned out fantastic. During the big day, everything is a blur and it's hard to appreciate those little special moments. My wife and I were extremely happy with how Serge and his team caught all of those moments that we can now appreciate for a lifetime.

  • Serge was amazing! Great energy, great spirit. He made our engagement and wedding photos so much fun! He hustled so much throughout the day and made our guests feel like movie stars in the meantime! The photos really captured the joy of the day. We couldn't be happier!

  • I wish I could rate him 5+++! Serge photographed our daughters wedding and he was fantastic!!! Even our guests were commenting how great he was. To quote one of our guests 'That photographer...who was he? I want to hire him. He was everywhere right in the action and he was capturing every special moment...he was great'! She couldn't have said it better! On top of being a great photographer he was funny and very personable. He went above and beyond our expectations! Thank you Serge!!!! We can't wait to see the pictures.

  • My husband and I are so happy with having Serge as our engagement/wedding photographer! He was fantastic to work with, just a really nice and easy going guy all around, but still highly professional. We also were grateful that he offered such a reasonably priced package. The pictures themselves were beyond beautiful, and we received high resolution copies so we can print however much we want. I would recommend Serge to anyone who wants a high quality and enjoyable photography experience.

  • Unresponsive and the pictures didn't turn out well at all. Wouldn't hire him again. His thumb was in some of his pictures and I had to instruct him to remove his lens cap one time.

  • I wish I could give Serge a million stars! My wedding photos came out great and Serge is good at what he does. With that being said.... I wish that he would've responded to emails in a more appropriate time frame. The average wait time was about a week and there were some emails that went unanswered. Which caused all this extra anxiety because when first reaching out to Serge he was so quick to respond and once the contract and deposit were made it then became difficult to get a hold of him. I feel that kind of stress and anxiety of not being able to get a hold of your wedding photographer (especially after full payment) should be the least of a brides worries. My wedding was in August so I get that the summer is the busiest for weddings but a quick email just acknowledging that he received and read my emails would've been nice. At the end of the day he showed up and took beautiful and creative photos. If you are comfortable with not receiving a response right away then working with S... Read more

  • We couldn't have asked for better engagement and wedding photos! Serge was so laid back throughout the whole process, which was great because I had a billion questions and needed a plan for everything! We did our engagement shoot about 11 months before we got married and I knew from that day that we had picked the right guy. Serge made us feel not-awkward and comfortable right from the beginning and was able to capture both love and humor in our pictures, which is one of the reasons we chose him in the first place! He spent multiple hours with us and I didn't feel rushed at all. We got our engagement pics back within 2 weeks (over 300 of them!) and they were all amazing. For our wedding, Serge and Vlad outdid themselves. Serge did a great job controlling "formal" pictures while still capturing a lot of amazing candid moments. He kept things light and fun, even my younger brother was able to make it through 2 hours of photos! They stayed well beyond their contracted time at the wedding... Read more
