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!

Photography 101 Workshop {REGISTRATION IS OPEN} | September 1st

“It’s like drinking from a fire hose, I can’t wait to go out and try it all!” That’s the most common comment we have gotten from our Photography 101 attendees. So who is this workshop for? It’s for anyone from first time SLR users, up to those who have been shooting with an SLR for awhile but still aren’t completely comfortable with how to integrate Shutter Speed, Aperture, ISO, Kelvin Temperature, White Balance, Focus Points, Back Button Focus, and AI Servo/One Shot all together to create images. In other words if you don’t know what every button on your camera does, and how it affects your photos, than this is the class for you.

What will we be doing? Well, we will start off at our studio right in the heart of downtown LA around 9:00am on Saturday 9/1/12. (click here to see the studio). We will have a few hours of lecture and look at a lot of photos up on the big screen. This is very interactive, and we always make sure everyone is tracking as we go. This is where we go in depth on how to use an SLR. It’s also when we drink our Starbucks.

After the morning lecture, lunch will be provided at the studio. Then the adventure begins. Right outside is an escalator that goes down into the depths of the earth. If you grew up in the Los Angeles suburbs and haven’t ever seen public transportation, it’s called a subway. We will all take the subway down the track two stops for some practice shooting with a few models at the gorgeous Union Station. (the price also includes your subway ticket).

After the shoot, we’ll all take the subway back to the studio and your cars and will be done around 5:00pm. Don’t worry it’s all very safe and fun.

So to sum up what does this include?

1. Interactive SLR lecture, and everything you need to know to create great images in camera.
2. Lunch
3. Tour of downtown Los Angeles, the Subway, & Union Station
4. Models and one on one shooting instruction
5. Two Special pre-release chapters.
– Shooting your first wedding (for those interested in weddings)
– Software Solutions (a list and explanation of all 30+ pieces of software we use to run our business)
6. A Video & Companion PDF going over our entire culling process.

Total price for all of the above is $99, or you can bring a friend (with one camera between you) for an extra $75.

Sound like something you’re interested in? Registration is limited to the number of seats in our display room. I hope you can make it!
