Lukas & Suzy International Wedding Photographers bio picture

    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!

Christian & Lashantae: e-session

I shot Christian and Lashantae’s wedding on Saturday, so these are a little late. lol. But I guess I should say that we didn’t do the session till shortly before the wedding, and I did get him all the photos before the big day so he could use them. =).

Anyway, since the wedding was just 4 days ago I think I need to say that I was so impressed with how much Christian loved and included so many people on his big day! It’s always great to see the Lord magnified through your actions! More details when I get the rest of the photos up! =).

Raul & Nora: e-session

As some of you might have seen in one of my preview posts I got the chance to head down to the Orange Country Fair with Raul and Nora to do some engagement photos a few weeks ago! I hadn’t been to a county fair since I was a kid so it brought back a ton of fun memories. You guys are a blast! Your wedding is going to be so much fun!

This was kind of funny the three of us in the little photo booth. Me with my fisheye and Raul and Nora hanging out. lol. They guy in charge of the booths came over to find out what was going on. =)

Everyone at the fair was so nice. I was expecting the usual rude staff that you tend to see at some permanent venues. But pretty much everyone we ran into from the games people, to the rides staff, to just people hanging out were super friendly. They even let us go in the little whirly wave thing without paying to go in the fun house! =)

Susannah - Nora! I LOVE these! You guys were so much fun!

Zach & Sasha: e-session

Now that the cat is out of the bag I can finally tell the rest of the story. Last month I needed to go to Kentucky to ask Susannah’s dad if I could marry her. I also wanted to go ring shopping with her mom. So in the end, although it was somewhat of a weak alibi, I told Susannah I was going to Nashville to visit my friend Toby. I also casually mentioned on my blog that I would be in Nashville the end of the week.

Shortly after I posted the blog concerning Nashville I got an email from Zach and Sasha with some questions about engagement and wedding photos. It was all a very last minute thing, but I ended up meeting with them and doing some engagement photos while I was there. And now I’m super excited to say that Suzy and I will be going out to Nashville in just a couple weeks to do their wedding!

I also need to say that as much as I like L.A., I also love when I get the chance to do photo sessions in other cities. There is such a different feel when you get into all the cool old houses, barns, farmland, and in this case some corn fields!

Enjoy the photos, and check out the Storybook Slideshow!

This is kind of embarassing, but I for some reason decided since I had a 4×4 rental car I should drive it through the stream. It’s parked on a rock in the middle in the photo, but it was a lot deeper on the edges. The funny thing is when I got out to take a photo I slipped in the water and totally fell in. I was soaked! At least I was able to hold my camera above the water. Zach and Sasha just stood on the shore laughing at me. Lucky for me I was the one with the camera or else they would have had some really funny shots. =)
