Our couples are bold and fearless. We all know we have double chins, imperfect angles, extra/fewer pounds, you name it. Who cares? We love ourselves and our couples do too. The moments we capture are not edited up to industry/family/friends standards but are raw and real.
We’re stoked to be a part of your wedding day. And we’re there to document every single bit of it. All the tears/laughter/hugs and awkward moves on the dance floor. Raw. Unique to who YOU are. And not based on anyone’s idea of what it should look like or what you should look like.
Our job is not to make the wedding seem like every other/standard/traditional wedding. Our job is to photograph what it FELT like in the moment, for you and everyone there.
As cheesy/cliche it sounds, we freaking love our job! The fact that you’re even considering us to be a part of your wedding day gives us goosebumps. Seriously. It might seem like no big deal for you, but your love story is a very big deal for us.
The moment you decide that we’re the right fit to photograph your wedding, you don’t just become our client, but most importantly our friend. We understand that you’re inviting us to be a part of one of the most special and intimate moments and we take this job very seriously.
We don’t care what your race/ethnicity/sex/sexual orientation/political views/dietary restrictions are. We celebrate everyone and everyone’s story!

Alex and Anastasiia Polyakov are a photography match made in heaven. We were so excited for our highlights album that we downloaded each picture on our honeymoon. Each new picture that they post to our highlights album is a gift. They are daring artists and photographic geniuses. We can not wait to see the entire album. The images that they captured during our engagement shoot and wedding day comprised of a documentary approach that made for phenomenal and detailed shots. They were also imperative in coordinating our very private and personal first look before the wedding ceremony. Their editing approach is incredibly detailed and sophisticated. This made for resplendent finished photos that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. During the engagement shoot and full-day of wedding pictures, they never made us or attendees uncomfortable with their documentation of the day. Throughout the wedding night, I rarely noticed that they were there. They are not only fantastic at portrait shots for formal pictures with family members, but also know how to blend into a celebratory environment to capture distinct action-packed dance shots. You could not ask for more from two photographers. Their devotion to photography is evident from their continued attendance at work shops and photography retreats, as well as their review process for editing pictures. My wife and I could not be more happy with their work. They are a phenomenal team and will ensure great coverage of your event. Book without hesitation.Sent on 06/18/2019

We did a photoshoot with Alex and he was great! Easy to work with and very receptive to feedback. We scheduled one session with our dogs at Sligo Creek Park and we got some great shots. However, our dogs quickly lost interest and made it tough to proceed so Alex offered to do a whole additional session in another setting in the city. In addition to his flexibility, the pics came out great! We can't wait to share them with our family and friends!Sent on 12/27/2017

I am absolutely in love with the results of a creative photoshoot that Polyakov Photography did for Igor and I. They made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and had endless ideas for our shots. You can really feel our love when you look at the pictures - they really know how to capture the moment. I would highly recommend them for your engagement shoot, wedding shoot, or just a fun shoot on a Saturday afternoon. I can't wait to share our pictures with everyone! Thank you, Alex & Anastasiia!Sent on 01/04/2018
Great working with this duo! As a wedding coordinator I am always hoping to work with pheonomenal vendors, and Polyakov Photography is a phenomenal team! They are absolutely professional, stick to the time but also give flexibility for any hiccups, they will ensure all the portrait shots and creative shots you are seeking will be covered. I recommend this team to anyone looking for a talented duo that is respectful of the schedule and able to be absolutely gracious to everyone they work with. Their photos are absolutely gorgeous, stunning and filled with light. They make everyone around them feel comfortable and relaxed.
