I had the pleasure of working with Roman Grinev Photography for our September 30th wedding at The Winery at Bull Run! Sean was our photographer and our wedding pictures turned out amazing!!! Sean did a great job of getting all of the photos I wanted, and more! I hardly noticed him the day of, but looking back on the photos he caught so many memories that we have been looking at over and over re-living our special day! Sean did an absolutely phenomenal job! Roman was also a pleasure to work with. Before our wedding, we connected and he answered all of my questions in regards to photos, timelines, etc. He was always very quick to respond- which always makes a bride feel better. I would recommend Sean and Roman Grinev Photography ALL day!!!

If you are looking for an experienced and professional photographer, then Mr. Grinev is the one. He is responsible, attentive, and professional. He was able to follow on all our requests for photos even if we had already taken them a few minutes ago. His experience is worth every penny!!

We used Roman Grinev Photography for our wedding and engagement pictures and couldn't be happier. We had an amazing selection of pictures for a great price. They really captured the wedding day with some great artistic shots. Both Rob and Thomas were very easy to work with and non-intrusive. Roman is very quick to respond to any questions and helped us to work within our budget. I would recommend them to anyone and would definitely use them again! Thanks!!

We had a great experience using Roman Grinev Photography for our wedding on August 12th, 2017. We chose to have Napoleon as our photographer, and we included an engagement photo session in our package. We met Napoleon for the first time in person at the location for our engagement photo session in June, and he was very friendly. He was very quick to scope out the venue, and found some nice locations to take pictures. We received almost 300 photos from the session, and they turned out great! To prepare for the wedding, Roman had us fill out a form with specifics of our timeline, and we also could give details on how we wanted to do our photos (location, portraits, etc.). During the day of the wedding, Napoleon started by taking getting-ready pictures at the hotel. He then drove to the venue ahead of us, and the bridal party, to start taking pictures of my wedding dress and the venue. He worked closely with our videographer and day-of-coordinator to make sure all the important things were captured the way we wanted, without being in anyone’s way. During the wedding ceremony, he moved all over the place very quickly and professionally, and neither we, nor the guests, noticed him at all. We did not know he was moving around so much until we received our photos, which was amazing! He also got a variety of photos during our wedding reception, and he was able to take us aside during the reception to take some additional portrait photos of my husband and I. It took about 7 weeks to get the pictures back to us, which we didn’t mind, since we were initially told it would take about 8 weeks. We received almost 1500 pictures, and we are very happy with them! We highly recommend Roman Grinev Photography and Napoleon for your wedding photography!

Although we don't have our official pictures yet, we just know we're going to be so pleased with them! We met with Roman several months ago and decided to hire him and his team on the spot. We were impressed with Roman's obvious knowledge and experience, and the portfolios of the photographers available to choose from. We chose Thomas as our photographer and, from the initial phone call to the big day, he exceeded every expectation we had from a photographer. Thomas was so friendly and helpful throughout the event, and seemed to be everywhere at all times! Our guests raved about how personable he was, and both the groom and I were impressed with the shots he suggested, the shots he knew to take when we didn't ask, and his ability to capture so many perfect moments - he even helped the groomsmen put on their boutonnieres! With over 4,000 pictures taken within his time with us, we just know we're going to have the amazing memories from our wedding last us a lifetime. Thank you!! Update: As an update to my earlier review, we've now received our pictures - over 1,300 beautiful, amazing pictures that commemorate what an amazing day we had! With a variety of angles, poses, lighting, etc., the pictures truly capture all of the personality, love and happiness that encompassed our wedding. Thank you to Thomas for such incredible work, and thank to you Roman for the fantastic experience! We HIGHLY recommend Roman Grinev for all of your photography needs!

We had Rodney photograph our wedding reception in July of 2017 (at the Ospreys at Belmont Bay - see separate review) and we had such a great experience working with him! Rodney is so talented and captured so many special moments throughout the day. His style is photo-journalistic, and that really shines through in the photos we received - each one brings to life a special moment that would have otherwise been easily lost and forgotten in such a busy and hectic day. The photos are not only aesthetically lovely in the balance of light and color, but more importantly, they also capture their subjects' essence very well, and naturally. You can see smiles in the subjects' eyes, and not just on their faces, and each photo reawakens the smells, the sounds, the laughter, and the hustle and bustle of a happy occasion. We had asked Rodney to take "engagement style" photos of us as a couple before the reception and he did a fantastic job capturing both this and the reception itself. We received over 700 photos for a 4 hour event, and they were a great mix of photos of us (the couple), our families, and the guests as well. Roman, the owner of the studio was very helpful and responsive to the many questions I had throughout the process. As a person, Rodney was kind and approachable, and took the time to listen to what we were looking for in our photos. As a photographer, he went above and beyond. The day before our reception, Rodney spent about an hour on the phone with me as I described the style of photos I am drawn to, and what I wanted to remember of the day. I am no professional photographer, but he was able to figure out what I was looking for and incorporate this into the photos. Our reception started at 10:00 AM but Rodney showed up a few hours early to scout the reception venue for good photos spots. All in all, he approached the task of capturing our reception with all the dedication and enthusiasm as if he were capturing his own wedding.

Roman was a dream to work with - very thorough and upfront about what to expect. Thomas served as our photographer for the actual event and he completely understood what we were looking for. The picture turned out great. Highly recommend.

One word... AMAZING! We were beyond thrilled with both Roman and our photographer Emily for our recent wedding. Emily captured the joy and love between my husband and I and also incorporated our personality as it was shown through the photos. Overall I would highly recommend as Roman is very professional and easy to work with. Pricing is good. Everything was just wonderful. Thank you!!!

SO happy that we ended up going with Roman Grinev Photography for our big day. We initially met with Roman who came to a spot convenient for us to discuss our day and after looking through albums we ended up going with Rodney as our photographer. The day of the wedding Rodney showed up much earlier than he was scheduled for to introduce himself in person and to walk around the ceremony/reception venue so he could visualize where he would like to take pictures of us. From the moment the ceremony started he was EVERYWHERE getting phenomenal pictures of everyone. He found GORGEOUS lighting to do a little shoot of me and my husband and made us feel totally at east even though we had never had professional pictures taken. His entire demeanor, professionalism and dedication to his work is unparalleled. We cannot wait to see the full album of all the pictures and couldn't be happier that Rodney was a part of our day!

Roman and his team are exceptionally professional; I worked with Sean at my wedding and was very pleased with the results of the photography. He captured sentimental moments that my husband and I will be able to look back on for years to come. Would recommend Roman and his team to anyone!
