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!

Jeff & Brooke: Wedding

A few days before I got married I had the pleasure of shooting Jeff and Brooke’s wedding. For me it was kind of that last little kick of excitement I needed to get me super excited for me own wedding only 5 days later. I have a lot more thoughts on my wedding, but since I shot this one before mine I will post it first!

A few things about the day that make me smile when I think about them:

– The the look on Jeff’s face when Brooke first came out to see him.
– The wedding party during some of the photos we took.
– The song by two of the bridesmaids during the ceremony. (it had everyone laughing)
– In-n-out catering the wedding
– The cake cutting (Everyone had their own cake! Way to be original!)
– People dressing up for the photo booth.
– Jeff and Brooke just leaving with out telling anyone. Love it! =).

Rehearsal Dinner!

I can’t believe I get to marry my best friend, my confidant, my soul mate, my spiritual partner, and someone I can’t imagine living the rest of my life without! Suzy, I love you so much!

This will be the last post for a week or so because I am getting married in 12 hours, but I thought I would post a couple of the family photos we took at the rehearsal dinner! It’s so much fun getting together with all our family and just having fun! I love you guys!

I look forward to looking back at the wedding from the married side of the deal and writing a little bit about how my perspectives might change!

Suzy - Awwwwww! Now we’re all marrieded! I LOVE YOU TOO!!!!!!!! And I can’t imagine my life without YOU!

2 Days till I get married and a preview!

Wow I can’t believe I will be married in two days. I had these high hopes of posting all the little details of everything as it was happening. But somehow life just got a little too crazy. Having been to as many weddings as I have there are a few specific things which I like and others which I don’t. The great thing is that Suzy is on the same page as me, and we were really able to narrow the day down to the few specific things which were really important to us.

In the end we decided to split things up into two different events. For the wedding it will be a very small family only ceremony and brunch beginning on a private beach in Ventura. This way we will have the whole week to spend with both our families. In all reality this will be the only time in our lives they will all be in one place and we have a number of fun events planned.

The second event will be the reception in January. We really wanted to make sure we got some quality time with all of our friends, and decided that it will be more meaningful if we had a somewhat extended multi part day long reception. The other plus is we will be all moved into our house and it will be easier to plan everything. We will be sending out invitations for the reception sometime in early December.

I am hoping to post one more blog before the wedding, but thought I would include at least one photo from Jeff & Brookes wedding on Saturday! The whole thing was so nice, I wish I had time to put the whole story together before we left. But be checking my site in a couple weeks for the rest!
