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!

Steven & Stacy {Engagement Photos} Pasadena City Hall, California

On Monday I had the joy of hanging out with Stacy & Steven and shooting their engagement photos! It was so much fun. Stacy met Steven at a mutual friend’s dinner party, and they just clicked. Stephen lived on the east coast at that time, but started regularly calling Stacy and she more and more looked forward to hearing from him. When Stephen got the opportunity to move to California just minutes away from Stacy, he jumped at the chance. Although Stephen sees it that they had already been dating a few months, when he moved is when it became more serious for Stacy, and after a few months both of them knew they were meant for one another.

Here are a few of my favorites from the session. You two are so cute! We can’t wait for your wedding!

John & Lauren {Engagement Photos} Yale & Lighthouse Park, New Haven | Connecticut

There is this soft and quite love that radiates between couples. It shows through in the soft embraces, it shows when he spins her around and pulls her tight and it shows as they walk and laugh together. Those little inside smiles are what show to the outside world the beauty of their relationshop together. Capturing those moments is whats makes photos real, and fun, and so true to each and every couple. In the rain, or in the snow, in the cold or in the heat it’s all the same. It’s the beautfiful fun and intimiate interactions that I love.

Thank you so much John and Lauren for the awesome afternoon I got spend seeing you two together! Enjoy a few of my favorites below! Suzy and I can’t wait for your wedding!
