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!

Shootsac Grand Opening

Suzy and I had been wanting to hang out with our friends Bill Blakey and his wife Cory ever since Bill shot our wedding a few months ago. We also needed to get Suzy a new camera bag. She has been keeping lenses in her sweater pockets on recent shoots and all her sweaters are getting stretched out. So Friday night we decided Jessica Claire‘s Shootsac grand opening party would be the perfect place to accomplish both goals in one fun outing!

Our new friend Ally explaining all the ins and outs of the Shootsac to Suzy. They were all out of the cover Suzy wanted, so I will post some photos of her modeling her new bag when we get the cover in the mail. =)

The snack table!

The thing I like about going to parties where almost everyone there is a photographer is that you don’t need to get through all the awkward small talk with people before you find something in common to talk about. =). You already know what you have in common with everyone there and it makes for a lot of fun and stimulating conversation. =).

Bill Blakey, his wife Cory, and my fish eye. =). There were a lot of people in a small space so I choose a lens which works in close quarters. =)

Me, Suzy, and Jessica Claire.

Victor & Elisabeth: Wedding

Last weekend I posted about going up to Cambria for Victor and Elisabeth’s wedding. Well I finished the photos! I think the biggest thing I enjoyed about the whole wedding was that everything took place within one little courtyard! There were a good amount of people there, but it really felt like a little family get together where everyone was close and everyone got to hang out. I love that you guys were so chill and laid back and just had fun with your day!

I put together a little Storybook Slideshow of everything, so be sure to check it out!

The first look!

After the getaway we went down to the beach for a little 10 minute post session! Too much fun! =)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving has come and gone once again! I was planning on posting this last night, but we were having to much fun and all of a sudden it was bedtime. In the theme of Thanksgiving I was thinking of a few things I was thankful for. And I guess the list comes down to everything! God is so good in all the seasons of our life. Amidst both the trials and the good times He gives us reasons to be thankful!

I did come up with a list, but I think it’s just a start. I’m thankful for: God, Jesus for forgiving my sins, Repentance, My wife (Suzy), A house to live in, Electricity, In-n-Out Burger, The internet,The off button on my computer, My siblings, My parents, Suzy’s family, The Bible, The Pastors at my church, Getting to work with the High school group at my church, Pumpkin Pie (LOVE pumpkin pie), My car, Freeways (even with traffic), My computer, living in So Cal, Nice weather, Good friends, Eggnog, Sunny days, Rainy days, experiences that make me grow, being able to be a photographer, pumpkin pie, and this list goes on!

We had a kind of eclectic mix of people over yesterday, and I don’t think it could have been more fun! Thanks for coming everyone! =)

My brother and law ben had to leave early to get to work, but this is everyone else. =).

My sister Julia, brother-in-law Ben, and little nephew Caleb!

Ok so we had a lot more food than this, but I was so excited to eat it I forgot to take photos. =)

I always forget to take a photo of my plate when it’s heaped high and looks all nice. =). Maybe next year.

Marie - Just wanted to say one thing….I love thatyou Americans drink out of what us New Zealanders would call “glass preserving jars” and in NZ we use these strictly for preserving fruits and relishes etc…Its the weirdest thing to see!!! hahaha….Our friends (who are NZers but went to Masters Seminary) drink out of them too!!! I refuse too personally!!! Its just too odd!!! hahaha

Marie - Sorry one other use for those jars is as a vase for flowers etc!!! definitely not a drinking vessel!!! hahaha
