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!

Shawn & Teresa {Wedding Photos} Calamigos Ranch, California

Shawn & Teresa had so many moments throughout their day that I actually teared up on. And no it wasn’t just because I’m pregnant. Although the hormones may have helped a teeny bit ;) During their vows, Teresa’s words gave me and Lukas a glimpse into their relationship and the bumps along the way to get to where they are today. Bumps that everyone goes through, that makes your bond stronger. And then it was Shawn’s turn for the vows and it took him two minutes to start talking because he kept choking up. So sweet.

During the reception, Shawn made the announcement that he and his bride were moving forward in their family by taking on his adopted dad’s last name. And how his dad was a role model for how to love your wife. When I saw his dad’s expression that is when I really started getting teary eyed.

Shawn and Teresa, you are a fabulous couple and I am so excited to have been there and capture those special moments on the first day of your wedded journey! Thank you for having us be a part!

Enjoy a few of our favorites below, and you can see more of the day here!

Michael & Danielle {Wedding Photos} Woodstock Farm | Bellingham, Washington

I remember the day I first met Michael. I had just turned 19, and just moved back to California a few days earlier. Some other friends of mine helped me get a job doing tech support at a company called This.com. Michael worked there, and on my first day I walked in and inadvertently sat at his desk and started using his computer. I don’t think we hit it off that day, but soon after we became friends and have been ever since. It’s been so fun staying in touch and catching up in a lot of random places all over the world.

I also remember when I started to hear about Danielle. She sounded fantastic online, but then when I happened to be in Vancouver she took an hour long train ride to come have dinner with us the one night I had open! After that dinner I decided she was even better than she looked from a far. =)

Michael & Danielle’s wedding was on of those few weddings we go to every year that after it ends I’ll think to myself “wow that was so perfect I would have been happy if that was my wedding”. Not that all the other weddings we do aren’t fabulous. They are. But they are fabulous for a different set of preferences. The setting out in the field on the bay with the majestic view, the soft cool air of the pacific northwest, the smell of pines, the old farm house was the kind of feel I LOVE. Everything was so quaint and comfortable and full of nature that it was amazing!

Thank you both so much for letting Suzy and I be a part! Enjoy a few of my favorites below!
