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!

Igor & Mariyka: Mini Session

I’m going to put up the rest of the Shepherds’ Conference photos in the morning. But I did a little breakout session during lunch today and they were just too cute to not put online.

Back in 2005 TMAI (The Master’s Academy International) flew me from Germany, where I was staying at the time, to Samara Russia for the weekend. They wanted me to do some photos of their graduation ceremony, and some stock photos for some promo material. All to say, while I was there I briefly met Igor. We exchanged a couple emails over the years, but the most recent one was to tell me he and his new wife of eight months would be here in the U.S. for the Shepherds’ Conference and he would be interested in doing a session. I had the conference all week, a wedding tomorrow, and another session on Sunday. So I was pretty booked up while they were here. But I told him I could do a quick 15 minute session during lunch today.

We just walked down the street behind the church, and here are the results! I love it! Igor & Mariyka you look great! I’m glad we got to meet up again, and in my country this time! =)

Shepherds’ Conference 2010 – Thursday

Shepherds’ Conference day two! I heard some bits and pieces of the messages, but I can’t wait till it’s over so I can listen to all of them! But I need to head to bed so I’ll just let the photos tell the story tonight!

I have also been updating the Shepherds’ Conference Flickr site, and iPhone app as the conference has been going as well as this page. So feel free to keep checking back for more photos!

Jaclyn and Rachel - Hi Lukas and Suzy,
We’re the daughters of Frank Pass whom you met at church on Sunday night. We check your blogs often…we’re faithful followers/lurkers. We love seeing the images you create, and we think it’s really cool that you shoot together! We also enjoy all the pictures from the Shepherd’s Conference so we can look for people we know. :) Thanks for sharing and updating so frequently!

Shepherds’ Conference 2010 – Wednesday

Today was the first day of the Shepherds’ Conference, as usual it was quite the flurry of people. It was fun to wander around campus and connect with a lot of people I have known over the years. I feel like I have gotten so many photos of everything that is happening in past years that I would just catch a few glimpses of new things here and there. I haven’t gotten to listen to a whole message yet. But I look forward to listening to the audio when the conference is over.

For those of you following from home I have been updating the Shepherds’ Conference Flickr site, and iPhone app as the conference has been going. I have also been updating this page. So feel free to keep checking back for more photos!

Below are just a few photos from the main sessions. =). More soon.


And Suzy was volunteering at the coffee shop so of course I needed to get a few of her!

Aleksandr - Hello!
My name is Alexander, I live in Russia.
I thank infinite God that he has presented to us true pastors, such as John Mcarthur.
Two from six our pastors participate in Shepherds’ conferences.
If it is possible, make more pictures of participants.

Thanks.
