  • 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.

  • Serge was great. The engagement photo session lasted way longer than he had anticipated but we still had a great time getting to know each other. The wedding was kind of hectic, hopefully we got all the formal shots we wanted. Picture quality is very nice.

  • Sokolov Photgraphy was just amazing. We utilized them for both our engagement photos and on our wedding day. Serge was incredible right out of the gate - neither my husband nor I love having our picture taken, but he put us right at ease and helped us to feel comfortable during our engagement shoot and also on our wedding day. Serge and Kate really went above and beyond to ensure our photos were top notch. Our ceremony took place in a black box theater (basically, an all black room) - Serge took the extra time to work with the lighting director at our venue to ensure he would be prepared and able to take amazing shots. The quality of our photos is outstanding. Serge has quite an eye for taking creative and beautiful shots - as a result, we have truly unique and beautiful photos. We opted not to hire a videographer for our wedding and could not be happier with our decision - Serge was able to capture the story of the day completely with photos. Overall, I can't imagin...

  • Serge and Kate are an absolutely amazing team to work with. From the engagement session to familiarize us with working with a photographer, to the post production, to the actual big day- everything was completely professional, yet comfortable. Serge is great with putting you at ease, and has great ideas for pictures. Kate's production capabilities are phenomenal as well! We knew right away when meeting Serge that he would be perfect for the big day- after all, the pictures are what you'll be looking at for years to come! I could not recommend Sokolov Photography any higher, and am incredibly happy with our choice.

  • I cannot say enough good things about Serge, Kate, and the entire Sokolov team. They did both our engagement and wedding photos for a very reasonable price (especially compared to other photographers in the DC region). We met with them well in advance to determine our needs for our wedding day and they walked us through our options and the entire process. They were very responsive to all email inquiries and were so accommodating even when we had to reschedule our engagement shoot four times. Serge is also hilarious and can make anyone laugh and feel at ease, which is a huge plus. Everyone looks so happy/carefree in our photos. He was even a pro at handling our two young pit bull mixes and incorporated them into our engagement and wedding photos. He and Kate do amazing retouching as well. One of the major perks of this team is that they will give you a DVD of ALL your retouched photos (we literally received hundreds) that you are allowed to post/print/send anywhere. They also do album d... Read more

  • Serge and Kate are so wonderful! They did my engagement shoot together and the photos are so beautiful. They really captured the love and the connection between the two of us and took special attention to small details that we wanted to incorporate. Kate had a baby! Congratulations to you both!! So we had a different photographer on wedding day but Serge and his new sidekick are awesome! They were never in the way and took the same special care to photograph all the details. So many things in my wedding were handmade and alot of it by me. I am so excited to get my wedding photos because i know they will be amazing! Thank you Serge and Kate!! When we need photos again you will be my first phone call!!!

  • After going to Wedding show after Wedding Show and getting engagement photos with a well known photographer to lets just say was very mediocre we found Sokolov Photography and instantly knew on the spot that Serge and company was the perfect fit. From the engagement shoot to the day of Sokolov Photography sets the tone for high class photography in the area. The quality and professionalism of Sokolov Photography is second to none. If you look at the photos that Sokolov Photography generates versus other photographers you can clearly see the difference. The photo quality is a cut above the rest. The photos are stunning and I can attest you will not be disappointed. If Sokolov Photography is not the premier Photographer in the D.C. area yet its only a matter of time until the word gets out. His product,quality and reputation speaks for itself.

  • Outstanding service all around! This review is well overdue and if you are looking for a photographer you should absolutely go to the Sokolov team. Serge and Kate are both so sweet and take a lot of time perfecting not only the photos but their relationship with you. My husband and I used their services back in Maryland in 2013 for our engagement and wedding photos. Engagement sessions can always be awkward because most people aren't 100% confident taking pictures, Serge made sure to make us feel at ease before we even got to the picture site. The photo quality is amazing and Kate does a wonderful job editing. The day of the wedding the team was efficient and creative with photo taking and making sure to get everyone included. All in all, you need to try these guys out. I am constantly complimented on our gorgeous photos and we owe it all to the Sokolov team!

  • I was recommended to Serge and Kate of Sokolov Photography by an old friend, and let me tell you, it was like hitting the jackpot!! Not only did this husband and wife team easily welcome personal touches and offer tons of picture ideas, but they also made the whole process feel relaxed and natural. We booked the duo to do our engagement and wedding, and let me say our pictures are breathe taking. And although we contracted both of them for both events, come the time of the wedding Kate and Serge welcomed a little bundle of joy, leaving Serge to come to the wedding and he also brought a back up photographer that he works closely with as Kate's stand-in (His name is T, and he was just as wonderful). We got all of our pictures we wanted and some we could have never dreamed of. Sokolov Photography goes above and beyond, really are a cut above the rest, and I highly recommend them to anyone. Sokolov will always be in our lives now to capture all of our milestones. Love isn't a big enough wo... Read more

  • Absolutely LOVE Sokolov Photography. Serge, Kate, and crew did a fantastic job and we are extremely pleased with them. Overall a wonderful experience and they are very patient, responsive, honest, creative, flexible, professional, and the list goes on. We first had an engagement photo shoot that was so fun! On our wedding day, they were with us from beginning to end and we enjoyed every minute of it. Our photos were properly edited and each one was perfect. Our album was beyond what we had expected! I would not go anywhere else for photography!!! Thanks so much! -Aristea and Vlad

  • Working with Serge was absolutely amazing. We actually didn't even get to meet face to face until the week of our wedding, but that's part of planning a long distance wedding. However, even if we had been in town I know for 100% that we would have picked Sokolov Photography. He made us so relaxed for our engagement shoot and it showed in our photos (and I've only seen two so far!!). We cannot wait to see our wedding photos, because of the few we've seen are any indication, I'm sure we will be blown away. We would recommend him to anyone who is getting married!

  • My husband and I could not have chosen better photographers to capture all of our amazing wedding moments! We both knew that planning a wedding would be a huge feat, so we were pleasantly surprised and delighted when we quickly leaned how effortless and fun of an experience it would be to get to work with Serge and Kate! We had Sokolov Photography shoot both our engagement and wedding photos, and were so very pleased with how beautiful all of the photos turned out. I was honestly a little nervous about the engagement shoot, having a "shoot" is not the most natural thing for me. Again though, I was so pleased with how Serge and Kate handled everything. They were very professional and very personable, which made the whole experience comfortable, relaxed and fun! Needless to say, your wedding photos are meant to be cherished for the rest of your life, as it is one of the biggest and happiest milestones of your life :) My husband and I are beyond happy that, thanks to choosing the S...

  • We wanted a professional photographer for our engagement party. I found Sokolov Photography's portfolio online and I instantly loved the photo styles so I booked it. Our party wasn't that big and we weren't sure if hiring a photographer would be a great idea since we didn't want to spend that much on the party. But I have to tell you that it was worth every penny of it. I got a good vibe from Serge on the phone when I wanted to set the time and plan for the day. He was punctual and even more than that. Before our party starts, we decided to go to a lake and take some shots. He showed up in our appointment 30 minutes earlier so he can evaluate the area. After we got there he started shooting photos. He was so professional and guided us to make good gestures. He was constantly taking photos of every steps we took. He created a relaxed shooting experience for us before the party started. After about an hour or so we went to the location of our party. Before we entered he'... Read more

  • When we first booked Serge he was very accomodating and met us in Columbia MD to introduce himself and show us his portfolio. He told us that he and his wife, Kate, would be the photographers which was great because we thought we would have to settle for one photographer since we were on a budget. They met with us at our venue and shot our engagement session. We got a lot of great shots. They are just starting out, at least that is the impression I got, but they took nice shots. Our wedding was at Kent Manor Inn across the bay bridge and he had posted on facebook so many good pics by the time we got to the airport the next day for our honeymoon, it was so fun to see them and all the comments! Great pics, lots of compliments, very budget friendly. The reason I did not give 5 stars on responsiveness was only due to the fact that I am anal and I like to receive email responses quickly. Most came quickly but there may have been one or two that I never heard back from.
