Lukas & Suzy International Wedding Photographers bio picture
  • WELCOME!

    Welcome to the blog! If the banner doesn't make it obvious enough I'll just spill the beans and let you know that we are a full time husband and wife wedding photography team. We love life, God, weddings, and if you slide over our names to the left you'll note a few other things we love.

    We are based out of Los Angeles, and when I say that, I mean our studio is right in the smack dab center of downtown. However, if you start browsing through the blog history you will soon note that we shoot weddings all over the country and world. We put a lot into making our images so I hope you enjoy checking some of them out!

    If you're up for having a great time at your wedding, and our photos have the look you are going for, then feel free to shoot us a note and we would love to chat some more!

John Calvin Walking Tour of Geneva Switzerland

The past week I shot a wedding in Brighton, England, and a really fun anniversary session here in Geneva Switzerland. But while in Geneva I also got to help my friend John Glass with a long time project he has had in the works. He has been putting together an in depth tour book that gives you a complete walking tour of all the sites, and places related to John Calvin in Geneva. Growing up I have always been fascinated and held to much of Calvin’s doctrine, and for the most part his presentation of the gospel through T.U.L.I.P. So it was amazing to see many of the places where this all happened back in the 1500′s during the reformation in Geneva.

On a different note I used many of the features on my camera that I rarly if ever use during weddings. Namely HDR, Fisheye Lenses, and Panorama’s. All the HDR images from inside and outside the church were handheld. I didn’t use a tripod. The panorama’s where also handheld, and I didn’t correct the distortion on the fisheye. You might note the photos are all VERY different from how I usually shoot. But I think they will be ideal for John Glass’ needs!

I’ll updated this blog sometime next year when the book is published and website is live with links to where you can get setup for a tour on your next trip to Geneva!

Thank you Glass’ for your generous hospitality and showing me around your city!

Philip & Sabrina {Engagement Photos} Malibu, California

In love, they walked hand in hand along the top of the bluff. As the sun set behind them a warm summer breeze gusted along the beach blowing her hair up around her face. Just then he leaned in and kissed her. It’s moments of magic and mystery like this that get etched in your mind as a forever image. An image that strikes that emotion in your heart every time you see it. This is what I love.
