Thomas Wakefield was everything we could have possibly wanted and more! He was easy and playful which fit our family perfectly! He was patient and had great ideas and made us so comfortable. I was very specific about not wanting "forma" portraits, I wanted him to capture our genuine moments. He was great herding the groom, myself, and our four teen and twenty-something kids. We had fun being ourselves and Thomas embraced and photographed every moment.
I haven't seen the photos yet, but I can't say enough great things about Thomas and Roman.
Thank you!

We worked with Roman for out wedding and he was great! He was flexible without requests for pictures and went from house to house to capture the bride and then the groom. We did not notice him at the ceremony or the reception and our guests said he was not intrusive in our day. We gave him a list of pictures for after the ceremony and he was respectful of our different family situation and moved everyone along quickly to get us to the cocktail reception on time. Our wedding was joined by the remnants of the hurricane but Roman put the rain to work and did not let it ruin pictures one bit! He was a fun person to be around and made us all feel so comfortable. We would hire him and and recommend him! We can't wait to see the pictures!!

We cannot say enough wonderful things about Roman Grinev Photography. We initially met with Roman who was happy to show us full portfolios of each of the photographers from whom we could select. He was very helpful answering all of the questions we had, and shared with us their rigorous back-up plans for the highly unlikely event of something unexpected occurring either human-related or technology-related. One of the best characteristics about Roman's photography business is the customer gets the rights to the photos and in addition to an online ordering system, receives a DVD of the photos. We selected Thomas and could not have been happier with his work. Thomas photographed both an engagement session and our wedding. The photographs from both are absolutely beautiful, capturing subtleties of us and our loved ones in the moment. Thomas was also personally wonderful to work with. He has a bright and approachable personality and we were comfortable around him from the start. He has a significant amount of experience and takes a personal interest in ensuring things go smoothly on the big day. We highly recommend Roman Grinev Photography and intend to use their services for any future professional photography needs.

Roman and Thomas were our two wedding photographers for our March 2015 wedding at Sequoia restaurant in DC. Overall, we could not have been happier with the experience. Roman was friendly and engaging when I first met with him to discuss the wedding. He was very receptive to our goals on the wedding day (take care of family portraits early and quickly so we could enjoy the day). The weeks up to the wedding, he contacted us about specific photos to take, and he covered our wish list on the day of the ceremony. Before, during and after the wedding, he was professional, non-intrusive but present to capture all of the key moments. Having two photographers was the way to go- while one was taking portrait pictures, the other was taking venue pictures- so we had all of bases covered. We had a sneak peak of our pictures on their blog 10 days after the wedding, and received a CD copy of all 1500 pictures (!) about 8 weeks after the wedding date. The pics were great, and we couldn't be happier. I would have no reservations about recommending Roman Grinev photography to any future. As a note, our wedding was a same-sex affair, and Roman couldn't have cared less (translation- his company is supportive of LGBT couples).

We worked with Thomas and Roman for our March wedding. They were amazing and we cannot recommend them more highly. Thomas was our main photographer, and he really went above and beyond to make sure we got the pictures that we wanted.
It had snowed in DC three days prior to our wedding, but I had my heart set on taking pictures outside, so Thomas found a spot near the hotel that was clean and snow free.
Thomas was relaxed and easygoing, which is just what we need for our already hectic wedding day, and all the while, together with Roman, got every picture that we requested, and fabulous candid pictures from the entire night. Thomas also knows how to fasten boutonnieres which came in very helpful as we were rushing to get everyone picture ready, and he even bustled my wedding gown after the ceremony. In addition, they were very familiar with the details of a traditional Jewish wedding - and made sure to catch all the details and moments that are important to the ceremony.
A few weeks after the wedding, we got an online preview of our pictures and 3 CDs with 1800 pictures a few months later.
Roman was very responsive to our questions both before and after the wedding, and we are so happy with the outcome. We highly recommend that you go with Roman Grinev Photography - both Thomas and Roman were awesome.

I can't say enough good things about our experience with Roman Grinev Photography. From the first moment we reached out for more information, Roman was extremely responsive and informative. We were able to put together a package that represented exactly what we wanted--unlimited digit images, with editing, over a certain number of hours--for what we considered an incredible price. Then, on the actual wedding day, our photographer Thomas really delivered. We got a wonderful range of gorgeous shots, which we made into a Shutterfly album. The turnaround was much quicker than we expected, as well as quicker than they had estimated. Photos were pretty much the top priority for me, and I wasn't disappointed with my decision. I absolutely recommend RGP to any bride.

Our wedding was just a few months ago in July and we have already had beautiful pictures to remember the special occasion for at least the past few weeks. From the beginning, Roman Grinev Photography was professional, responsive, and friendly. I had originally contacted another photographer (ErinMarie) who, after asking us to drive all the way to Germantown for a meeting ended up dropping all communication with me. Roman had reached out once before and again followed up in perfect timing to see if I still needed a photographer. The value of the photography package we chose was great. They had 7 photographers to choose from, who all had great portfolios, but this option allowed us to select our preferred style amongst these photographers with the assurance of an excellent back-up if our photographer had an emergency or was sick. Thomas was our photographer. He arrived early to the ceremony site and got all of the important shots I requested. He also helped us move through the transitions from the ceremony to the reception as we weren't 100% sure how or when we should do everything. He was friendly and professional. We received pictures online about 6 weeks after the wedding, incredibly timely and exactly what they had estimated from the beginning. From there the turnaround to receive printed pictures that we selected and the CD with all of the images, was incredibly fast and all beautiful. I would definitely suggest Roman Grinev Photography to anyone looking for a photographer to capture a special event.
