Out of all the people I have been working with during the wedding planning process, Lukas and Suzy were the most responsible, kind, and professional vendors. They have such a wonderful attitude and always seem available with super fast to responses to inquiries. We've received gifts from them throughout the process and they are simply the best. We loved the quality and experience of taking our pictures.

Lukas and Suzy are the sweetest couple ever! And their photography is amazing! It was so great working with them. Really love their philosophy towards creating an easy, no-stress photography package for couples. Their prices are really reasonable for the work they create and they are really accomodating to our schedule since we are from out of town. We spent days or rather weeks looking at our engagement and wedding photos over and over again. Everyone who saw our photos just kept commenting on how gorgeous and natural we looked. Their turnaround time is crazy fast without compromising on quality. We would highly highly recommend them! Go check out their blog and you'll see what we mean! =)

Lukas and Suzy VanDyke responded with the following comments:

Thank you so much for your kind words! Although our very base package does not include albums & prints, we offer a fabulous set of albums we get from a company in Italy, as well as a wide array of canvas and paper prints. This has always been the case. Please let us know if you would like us to help you with an order :)

Lukas and Suzy are an exceptional duo. They went above and beyond what we expected from them. They were very accommodating to our schedule as we were coming in from out of state. Not only that, both our wedding and engagement photos came out amazingly. They were very helpful in giving tips on what to wear and how to act during the photoshoots, while still letting both our personalities shine through. As newbies to this sort of thing, we were worried that things would be difficult or awkward. This was absolutely not the case. Lukas and Suzy could not have made things any easier for us. Everyone who saw the photos commented on how beautiful and natural they looked. I will definitely be recommending Lukas and Suzy to everyone we know!

Lukas and Suzy did a fantastic job and their photos came out great. They were very efficient and kept everyone in good spirits as we took photos before the ceremony outside in the heat. They definitely made it an easy part of the day which helped everyone relax. They also got great photos of the ceremony and afterwards at the reception. Would recommend them to anyone.

Lukas and Suzy are so sweet. I'm so glad I randomly found them one day on facebook. They're very responsive, flexible and hard working people. They did an awesome job on our engagement shoot and on our wedding. We received many positive feedbacks from our friends and family. Many of our engaged friends are asking about them. :) We loved working with them. I highly recommend Lukas VanDyke Photography.

Lukas took our engagement and wedding pictures and he is absolutely amazing!! He is so great to work with and his wife Suzy is so awesome too!! His prices are EXTREMELY reasonable for the quality and service you get. He's very professional but at the same time is so easy to talk to and not uptight. We had our wedding on 9/10/11 and he put up the pictures on his website and sent me a link for the proofs on Tuesday the 13th. Crazy fast and everyone was so excited to see the pictures already. I will definitely recommend him to anyone that's looking to get such a great product in return and not have any "surprises" at the end. Thanks Lukas and Suzy!! :)

Lukas and Susannah (his wife) were wonderful and professional in meeting with my fiance and I to talk about our wants and desires in the photography style for our wedding. The day of the wedding, both Lukas and Susannah were extremely professional and efficient. They captured all the memories we wanted with calm professionalism, patience, and politeness. The pictures are beautiful, artistic and creative along with a modern sense of traditionalism. I love just looking at my wedding album because the colors, styles, and the backgrounds used at the ceremony and reception are fascinating to the human eye.

I have been a long time follower of Lukas' photography blog ever since my friends used him for their wedding, so I can attest to the quality and creativity of his photos. A few of my friends have used him as a vendor, so I knew when it was my time to get married that I wanted to have him photograph our wedding. Lukas often shoots with his wife, and they make a great team. I loved our engagement and wedding photos and appreciated how he captured our moments. For his skill and quality of photos I think his prices are extremely reasonable, and was a pleasure to work with. He also doesn't try to hang on to photo copyrights like some photographers do to make you pay them to purchase prints, but he releases all the photo rights to you so that you can print them off however you like. OH, did I mention how FAST he is at getting our photos back to us as well? We were able to see edited photo highlights and online album before we even got back from our honeymoon, and sent us our dvd copy of all the photos a few weeks after that. AWESOME!

I still can't believe we were so lucky to find Lukas on a random facebook ad one day! He had us the moment we saw our engagement photos. Such a laid back attitude that made us feel so comfortable while shooting. Then the pictures made us look and feel like models for a day. His wife Suzy was a perfect match and their style was just what we were hoping for. Would highly recommend them both for any time you want those special moments captured forever.
