  • Sokolov Photography is the best! We had such a great time with Serge during our engagement session and of course our wedding! The husband and I are both awkward photo-subjects, but Serge instantly made us feel comfortable the moment we met him for our engagement shoot. Within seconds we were laughing, and he really helped to capture great photos of us! Serge definitely has an eye for artistic pictures, and isn't afraid to tell you to adjust for poses (e.g., he would always mention if a hair was in my face or if I should move my foot over a certain way). The day of our actual wedding, Serge and his second photographer stayed with us for 14+ hours! Not only was he very professional (and never once complained), but he was goofy and certainly knew how to pump up the bridal party. Our entire bridal party loved him. We got our pictures about 6 weeks after, and they turned out great!! Overall, Serge knows how to make you feel comfortable when taking pictures, and makes it such a fun e... Read more

  • Serge did a fabulous job with our wedding photography. He was great directing the photographs and really made everyone feel relaxed in front of the camera. The whole bridal party loved him and all of our friends and families personalities really showed through in the photographs! He went above and beyond our expectations and the pictures turned out stunning. Our venue required all vendors to be pre-approved. Serge handled all of the paperwork to get approved in a timely manner. He also worked with us to create a package that would stay within our budget.

  • Serge did a fantastic job for a complicated wedding! He was extremely thorough and did a lot of information gathering prior to the wedding (skype calls, since I wasn't local) as well as getting details of all of our family members! I was very impressed. I initially chose Sokolov because of the technical quality of his work. He is bar none the best photographer in this price range, and his quality exceeds almost any photographer in the DC area, no matter their asking price. If you want tons of beautiful, technically correct, and award winning quality shots, go with Serge! He shot all day for us and we had almost 1800 wonderful shots!

  • Wow! Is all I can say about Serge and the Sokolov team. I couldn't be happier about choosing Serge to photograph our big day. From the very start, Serge was responsive and prompt with his communication. We chose a package that included an engagement photo shoot (which I highly recommend doing!). The engagement shoot allowed us to get used to being photographed and how Serge works. Our engagement photos were beautiful and I did not think he could top those, but he did with our wedding photos. The photos were absolutely stunning. Serge went above and beyond by scoping out the venue ahead of time and being early. He captured so many special moments that I had no idea had even happened at the wedding. Now looking back, those are moments and photos that I will treasure forever. I really appreciated his calm, fun, friendly and easy-going demeanor. Even our guests commented on his great personality and attitude. I highly recommend Sokolov!

  • Serge photographed my wedding and reception in June of 2015, and I can honestly say his kind manner, personality and overall professionalism was fantastic. We asked him to join us for a two day event - a courthouse Friday wedding followed by a Saturday night reception, and he was amazing to work with. His photos were also amazing. I would work with Serge again for any event in the future!

  • We loved working with the Sokolovs. The whole process was easy and fun, which is not always the case with weddings. Serge shot our engagement and wedding photos. We were thrilled about our photos for both. We highly recommend!

  • My husband and I cannot rave enough about Serge and his incredible team. We were the first of all of our friends to get married, and as such didn't know where to begin when searching for vendors. For us, the photographer was the most important vendor because the pictures are what we will have forever. We thoroughly researched photographers in the Norther Va area and Sokolov photography by far had the most to offer. The quality of Serge's pictures is unrivaled. He's a true artist! Additionally, it is uncanny how comfortable he made us feel! My husband in particular is not a fan of having his picture taken, and yet Serge and his team made it a fun experience for everyone. He's an absolute professional as well as a great friend. We are looking forward to staying in contact for a long time! Looking back on all of the wedding planning, there's no doubt that hiring Serge and his team was the best decision that we made! As all of our friends begin to get married we will definitely be recommen... Read more

  • My husband and I had the best experience you can possibly have with Serge and his team!!! Not only did we love how wonderful they were but so many of our guests loved how personable, easy-going, friendly and kind they were and wanted their contact information for not only weddings but other future events like anniversaries, family photos, baby photos, etc. Serge's demeanor keeps you calm and comfortable no matter what is going on around you. He will go out of his way for you because he really is focused on pleasing you and giving you his best. We looked at several photographers in the DC, MD & VA area but Serge and his team were so reasonable and had such high quality work with such creative and unique ideas!!! Our engagement photos and wedding photos were everything we could hoped for and much more!!! If we need anymore photos in the future we will definitely give them a call. Thank you so much Serge and the rest of the Sokolov Photography Team!!!

  • We really loved working with Serge! We had a specific vision for our shoots and he was able to capture exactly what we wanted. Our photos are timeless and often catch ourselves thinking how fortunate we were to have a great photographer. We couldn't have asked for higher quality photos. As an added advantage, Serge is great to work with, very flexible and easy going. I highly recommend Sokolov Photography to anyone!

  • My husband and I worked with Serge for our small wedding and he was absolutely amazing to work with! He was incredibly accommodating for our ceremony and our reception. It was a misty day on our wedding day but he made it work! All the pictures he took came out stunning misty rain or not. My husband and I appreciate all his work and have many of our wedding pictures framed in the house. I would definitely recommend Sokolov Photography for any wedding event and/or for any moments you want captured beautifully.

  • Wow. Serge is so unbelievably talented. It has been a few months since our wedding, and we have gotten nothing but wonderful compliments about our pictures. Serge was such a professional, but so friendly and calm, it really made the engagement session and the bridal portraits fun and relaxed (which was extra nice since my husband and I are both pretty shy). Serge also did a great job during what turned out to be a little bit of an odd ceremony. My husband and I, who had planned everything ourselves, forgot to exchange rings. We ended up exchanging during the reception, and Serge totally rolled with the punches, and still ended up getting the PERFECT pictures of the exchange. Also, some of our guests came to our ceremony from China. It was very important to us to get pictures with the extended family, and the family portraits he took during the cocktail hour were exceptional. I really can't say enough good things. You will love and cherish your wedding pictures forever if... Read more

  • It's a few months after my wedding and so I have a lot more perspecitve now than I did during the planning process-- especially in regards to what is most important and what things one can go without. The images you have from that day are, by far, one of the most important investments you'll make during this whole crazy, expensive process. I am so happy I went with Sokolov. Serge is AMAZING to work with, super nice and dedicated to his craft. He will go out of his way and give 110% every time he interacts with you. The images from our wedding were stunning. He even went back, on request, to photoshop my mother's makeup in all the pictures because the makeup artists made her look like a ghost--- he did an amazing job and really saved the day! On your wedding day, you're going to be so excited to see all of your friends and family, the last thing you're going to do is be away from them posing for pictures (or at least your husband will complain) but Serge will make it s...

  • Sokolov photography is AMAZING! We worked with Serge for our engagement shoot and for our wedding. Both times we had hundreds of gorgeous pictures! Serge was easy to work with, very accommodating to our schedules, and takes pride in his work. The pictures from our wedding were better than I ever imagined and I have received so many compliments on the quality of the pictures. We had a good mix of candid, formal, and artistic pictures from our wedding. The passion they have for photography is evident in looking at the pictures. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Sokolov photography and would recommend them to anyone for any occasion! You must check out Sokolov photography! You will not be disappointed! Thank you for making two of the biggest moments in our lives ones we will never forget!

  • We booked Serge Sokolov for an engagement session and he was great! Very outgoing and fun to work with, he kept us at ease in the 100 degree heat. Also, he worked more hours than we initially agreed upon and was very flexible as we had an issue with our originally picked location. We had to move to a different location that Serge suggested and it turned out great. You can tell Serge is a hard worker and loves his trade, as he was truly trying to please. As a result, we got great images that our family and friends are still raving about. We love them too!

  • I could not have asked for a better experience with a wedding photographer! The pictures were amazing! We purchased the top package and had two photographers with us for the entire day from prepping before the wedding, through the ceremony and reception . They captured every moment beautifully! We also received a DVD with all of the images so we have unlimited access to all of our wedding photos, which is a huge benefit. Also, both of our photographers were very professional and enjoyable to work with and We had so much fun throughout the process.
