Shannon & Bryan

"Working with Lucas was an absolute pleasure. We were coordinating our wedding from the West Coast, which had its obvious difficulties, but Lucas was incredibly responsive and helpful with planning and logistics. We met several times via Skype to discuss our vision for how to shoot the day, and he was able to offer several very helpful options that really relaxed our decision making process. Any on top of that, his pictures are incredible. The color, tone, and style were exactly what we were hoping for and truly speak to his artistic eye. His relaxed style made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera which is something we were a little intimidated by. The entire experience was a pleasure from start to finish, and now we have hundreds of wonderful photos (including a bunch of fun ones from his photo booth) to relive our wedding. We can't recommend him enough. " Shannon & Bryan, October 17th 2015

Kelly & Chris

"My wife and I worked with Lucas for both our engagement photo session and our wedding. Right from our initial phone conversation, Lucas was extremely professional and a pleasure to work with. We had an amazing engagement photo session at Shelburne Farms, in Shelburne, Vermont. Lucas spent almost two hours with us and really took the time to get a variety of shots that we were very pleased with. It was really nice getting to know him not only at the engagement photo session but in our many phone conversations as we prepared for our wedding. He was extremely attentive to detail and made sure that everything ran extremely smoothly. He managed to not be overly intrusive while at the same time capturing many great moments throughout the entire evening. The quality of Lucas' photos which one can see on his website speaks for itself. We could not be happier with the number of wonderful photos we have from our wedding, and we have received so many positive remarks on our wedding photos. We would highly recommend using Lucas for any of your photography needs!" Kelly & Chris, September 26th 2015

Elizabeth & Gavin

"Living in Atlanta, my now husband and I had only spoken with Lucas via skype before our wedding. Even from speaking with Lucas remotely, he was extremely invested, thoughtful, and worked very hard to accommodate us. On our wedding day, Lucas was very professional and clearly was invested in giving us the best possible product over the course of the day. Now after receiving the pictures, I can honestly say that these are the best wedding pictures I have ever seen, and many of my friends and family said the exact same thing. I could not be more thrilled! Lucas is very talented, very hard-working, and he is a really great guy to work with. I give Lucas my highest possible recommendation."

Renee & Don

"Lucas was fantastic! His personable demeanor during our engagement session immediately put us at ease. From the get go, he was easy to communicate with and took the time to get to know us as a couple. His commitment to making our wedding day a true reflection of us came through in his work. It has been a joy to see all the photos as he carefully captured the details and intricacies of our special day. From candid photos of family and friends to easily forgotten table numbers and cake, we have been able to re-live the event through his incredible documentation of everything. We are so grateful to have had such a talented professional with us on our wedding day! Thank you, Lucas!" Renee & Don, August 1st 2015

Renee & Frank

"I can't say enough good things about Lucas!! To start, he is VERY nice and so was his assistant. We are terrible at pictures and he made us feel comfortable and have a good time. Our guests loved the photobooth! He is fast with the formal pictures (which is what we wanted). We opted for an extra hour at the wedding rather than engagement photos. I loved that he was there for more of the dancing portion. One of my best friends asked him to be their wedding photographer before she even saw the photos because of his personality! Another great thing, he has a computer with photos before the wedding is even over! Loved him - HIGHLY recommend!!" Renee & Frank, June 20th 2015

Hannah & Joe

"Lucas was absolutely wonderful as our photographer. He was so responsive and helpful throughout the entire process and really worked with us. The end photos were stunning, and he was able to get them to us really quickly." Hannah & Joe, May 16th 2015

Karen & Drew

"We cannot say enough about how wonderful Lucas was, from making arrangements prior to the day to the day itself and their flexibility when we asked them to stay another hour. They are professional, fun, discreet and an absolute joy. We thoroughly enjoyed having them be a huge part of our team at the wedding. Lucas was so creative in his shots and made us feel so comfortable with the right mix of 'traditional' shots, fun shots and his magical storybook approach. It was so easy to forget he was there and just enjoy the day and evening. The photographs are incredible and document a wonderful day filled with humor, love and friendship, all caught beautifully through Lucas' lens. I can wholeheartedly and thoroughly recommend Lucas and his team for any special event." Karen & Drew, April 17th 2015

Sarah & Matt

"First off, let us just say that Lucas is amazing and you should 100% book him for your wedding. Our wedding (and engagement) photographs are more than we ever hoped or imagined they would be. And it rained on our wedding day, so that is saying something! As one of our guests said, Lucas truly captured the spirit of the day. Lucas and his team were so wonderful to work with and easy to be around. Somehow they were able to capture all of the candid meaningful moments without feeling intrusive and at the same time we have some beautiful family and wedding party portraits. As very ungraceful and camera shy people, we were concerned about the portraits feeling forced and awkward but Lucas was able to easily guide us through them so the final result is flawless. Above all, Lucas is an artist and takes great pride in his work which is exactly what you want in a wedding photographer. His passion is contagious and you can’t help but get excited when he proposes taking a nighttime photo in the rain and the results are completely worth it!" Sarah & Matt, October 18th 2014

Krissy & Matt

"Lucas and his team did a wonderful job photographing our wedding! It poured and poured pretty much the whole day, and you can hardly even tell in the pictures, they turned out to be amazing. We enjoyed how candid moments were captured while also having a chance to "play" to the camera and have some fun. He was extremely professional and very adept at directing everyone in an efficient manner to make our time spent in the rain quick while generating great photos of both us and the wedding party. Not only this, he was personable, easy to communicate with, and no doubt quick to respond to any of our questions throughout our months of communication. We are so pleased to be able to relive such an amazing day through the memories that Lucas helped to capture." Krissy & Matt, October 4th 2014

Ali & Craig

"If you have the opportunity to work with Lucas DeSousa - do it! He shot our wedding (as well as our engagement photos, which were included in the package) and the final images looked amazing! We received the photos very quickly (a few of my friends had to wait months for their photographers to get them their photos). Lucas was also an absolute pleasure to work with! My husband and I were very nervous before our engagement/wedding sessions since neither of us knew how to pose for formal shots, but Lucas was very helpful at directing us and making us feel comfortable. He also had some very creative ideas that turned out great. We had an absolute blast working with Lucas and we cannot recommend him enough!! " Ali & Craig, August 2nd 2014

Abbie & Dan

"Lucas shot our wedding at The Ponds in July. He was a pleasure to work with from day 1. He was extremely responsive, professional and helpful! We were so lucky to have booked him. He made us feel comfortable throughout the whole process-even helped us get some amazing engagement shots when we felt awkward about being in front of the camera. The day of the wedding he came early than expected to make sure everything was set up and ready to go. Not only was he flexible, but he was also a calming presence. He was able to corral a large group of us to get some gorgeous wedding photos. The turnaround to get the photos back was lightning fast! We are so grateful to Lucas for his ability to capture our special day in the amazing way that he did. He has an eye for detail, unique shots and knows how to capture not only the special wedding moments, but also the beauty of Vermont. We will cherish these photos forever! I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer in the New England area." Abbie & Dan, July 26th 2015

Julie & Steve

"Lucas is awesome! He is great at finding perfect spots that the average eye wouldn't recognize for pictures and at maximizing great natural light. He's friendly, enthusiastic, gives great instructions when needed, and we couldn't be more happy with our choice for a wedding photographer!" Julie & Steve, July 12th 2014

Jennifer & David

"It’s not a cliché, it’s true – your wedding day flies by in a blur. The most memorable tokens of the day are your wedding photos, which is why our top priority was to find the right photographer. We did – Lucas deSousa was personable, creative, professional, responsive, and accommodating. And just an awesome person! Not having time to fit in engagement photos before our wedding date, Lucas drove three hours out of his way just to meet us face to face. He was determined to get a sense of our personalities and our vision for our wedding and our photographs before the big day. On the day of our wedding, Lucas and his assistant were awesome. They were there helping craft great images of our wedding party and our first look, which all turned out amazingly. Then, during the ceremony and reception I knew Lucas and his assistant were there, but I didn’t feel them in the intrusive way I see so many photographers at weddings. Yet our photos looked like they were standing with us. They captured the emotion of our ceremony and reception and the outright bash we had on the dance floor. At the end of the night, Lucas showed me a preview of our photos and I couldn’t restrain the tears – hours later that magical day was almost over but I could always relive it in our amazing pictures." Jennifer (Gallivan) Clausen & David Clausen Whiteface Lodge, Lake Placid, NY June 8, 2013

Tanya & Scott

"From the moment we met Lucas we knew we wanted him to photograph our wedding day. He is so professional, creative and extremely down to earth! Having never photographed a wedding at the venue we selected, he wanted to check it out with us prior to the wedding. We were so excited to see his enthusiasm about the grounds; we literally saw his creative juices following! Lucas captured our day better than we could have ever imagined! We are still in awe every time we look at out pictures!" Tanya & Scott, Quechee VT, July 13 2013

Holly & Prineet

"One piece of advice I received from a friend when planning my wedding was "choose a photographer you like and could be friends with, they will be in your face all day, you're going to want to like them as a person and not just for the work they do". Lucas made it easy for us to kill two birds with one stone. We love his work (we're a little biased for OUR wedding photos being our fav) and enjoyed spending our special day with him. We can't wait to bring Lucas back into our lives and showcase his photography skills when we welcome our first child into the world this winter." Holly & Prineet, Burlington VT, July 7th 2012

Nicole & Justin

"Choosing the right photographer for our wedding, to us, was one of the most important decisions we had to make in the planning process. These photos needed to capture the details, emotions, and special moments, that would allow us to relive this day year after year. When we met Lucas for the first time he made us feel comfortable, which allowed us to be ourselves. I felt confident putting all my trust in him to give us everything we asked for on the biggest day of our lives, and he did just that. He exceeded our expectations, and our pictures turned out fabulous! We also had the pleasure of working with Lucas for a third time, when he photographed our family and took some absolutely breathtaking maternity photos. I grew up in Vermont, but I no longer live there, and his pictures take us back there every time." Nicole & Justin, Cambridge VT, June 9 2012

Emily & John

"We planned our Vermont wedding from Colorado, so we knew that finding the right photographer was extremely important and it was going to be a tough task because we wouldn’t be able to meet him in person until the week of the wedding. After my first conversation with Lucas I knew that he was going to complement our personalities perfectly. Lucas is easy-going, fun to work with and we LOVE his style of photography. Lucas also went out of his way to make us feel calm and comfortable, which really shows in the final product. It is no lie when people tell you that your wedding day flies by too quickly, it does! Lucas and his assistant were able to capture every minute and every single emotion that we felt during that day, and to be able to look back on the photos and relive those precious moments is absolutely priceless." Emily & John, Jay Peak VT, September 7 2013

Sarah & Eric

"We would highly recommend Lucas for your wedding! He is great to work with, and professional and organized. Everything went perfectly on our wedding day. And the photos speak for themselves! There were so many amazing photos that we had trouble narrowing it down for the beautiful album we bought." Sarah & Eric, Essex VT, August 27th 2011

Jessica & Redd

"Lucas was very fun to work with and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. He was very receptive to our ideas and kept our desires in mind, while still getting the creative shots that he knew we would love. Lucas was very accessible before and after our wedding, and we enjoyed working with him to create beautiful keepsake albums as well. We look forward to working with him again in the future, and definitely recommend him to all of our newly engaged friends. We can't tell you how many times someone has told us how much they love our wedding images!" Jessica & Redd, South Burlington, VT, October 8th 2011
