Did you get engaged this holiday season? LaDuke Photography wants to help!

 LaDuke Photography Locations SMCongratulations to all of the lovely ladies and gents who popped the question, or eagerly responded, “YES!” this holiday season. I am so excited for all of you! As a wedding photographer here in Oregon (and traveling to Spokane monthly) I have a great grasp on what needs to happen next. I’m going to share a few links that you should save for your planning process. put-a-ring-on-it-laduke-photography

First things first, you’re going to need to pick a wedding date. Saturdays are far and away the most popular date, but did you know that if you get married on an ‘off’ day you can save up to HALF on things like a venue, photography, DJs, hair and make up – pretty much anything that isn’t a physical good like food or cake.  This is because vendors want to fill up the free days on their calendar.

Once you have a date and a venue it’s time to get busy. The next two things you need are a photographer to get the ball rolling on engagement photos, save the dates and planning for an awesome wedding! The other optional and highly recommended vendor that I recommend is a wedding planner. If you can afford it, do it! Here in Eugene I recommend Green Eyed Girl Productions and Embellished Occasions. Let them know Lacey sent you!

When it comes to choosing your photographer I hope you will give me a chance to grab a coffee and chat with you face to face. Choosing a wedding photographer that you really ‘click’ with should be a priority. Your wedding is important and we spend the whole day with you. Read more about choosing the photographer for you here.

You may want to check out my Engagement Photo Gallery. Here you can decide if you want to hire me for Engagement Photos al a carte or if you want to tie them into your wedding package.

If you want the best deal you’ll head over to my Wedding Photography Page. Here you will find a portfolio of my favorite images, my packages, and my pricing for summer Saturday weddings. If you are getting married November – May or on a day other than Saturday don’t forget to ask about my off season discounts.

While we’re at it, how about you get to know me a little better. I’m on several social media platforms that I update regularly.

I’d love to make some new friends and help make your wedding magical in the process!

Sunset Pet & Couple Session – Florence, OR

 

LaDuke Photography Locations SMAlexa and her boyfriend came all the way from the Boise, ID area with her two crazy Labrador’s in tow for a fun photo session on the beaches near Florence, Oregon. The weather was great so we chose to meet up near sunset at the beach below Heceta Head Lighthouse and let the dogs run off some of their energy while doing some cute couple photos. Unfortunately the FIRST thing the dogs did when the leashes came off was dive into the ocean and then roll in the sand, hence all of the wet dog photos! Good news is that we are flexible and just rolled with it, and the dogs had a great time!

Skinner’s Butte Engagement Session

LaDuke PhotographyKris and Nora booked LaDuke Photography earlier this year for their August wedding at DreamWood in Junction City, Oregon. We have been patiently awaiting Nora’s arrival in Eugene for the wedding and she is finally here, all the way from Sweden! The other night we took a quick trip to the top of Skinner’s Butte for some engagement photos. Kris and Nora were both a little nervous about having professional photos done so I recommended the session a couple of weeks before the wedding as a warm up. We had a great time and they were SO relaxed. I can’t wait to see what fun details their travel themed wedding holds!

Alberta Street & Peninsula Park Engagement – Portland

Peninsula Park Couple Photos PortlandLaDuke PhotographyAlex and Alexis called me during better weather to do their engagement photos in Portland. They were visiting their old stomping grounds after a move to Colorado and wanted to capture the essence of the Alberta Street area and Peninsula Park in their photos because they loved it so much when they lived there. I love shooting somewhere that is new to me so I jumped at the chance. I drove up from Eugene and I was greeted by a picturesque park with shrubs and fountains and all kinds of great romantic nooks and crannies. Peninsula Park is a great photo location. We wandered around there for an hour checking out all of the different backdrops.

Peninsula Park Fountain Engagement Photos PortlandPenninsula Park Portland EngagementCute Couple Photos Portland Oregon Peninsula ParkAfter spending a good deal of time on photography at Peninsula Park near Alberta Street we did a quick costume change and headed for the food trucks! Alex and Alexis love all of the great food options in Portland so they grabbed some dim sum and had a snack while my assistant and I did the same. I had a great time following them all over beautiful Alberta Street for engagement photos. There are tons of great murals and beautiful buildings to stop by for a completely unique backdrop on every corner.

Congratulations again to this awesome couple! I was so happy to be able to photograph their super fun engagement session in Portland. I can’t wait to see the photos from their Colorado wedding this summer!

LaDuke PhotographyGentlemen! Listen up! If you’re thinking of popping the question there is something you can do to make the moment extra special and AWESOME! Hire a photographer to capture the proposal the moment it happens. LaDuke Photography is now offering surprise proposal packages! You can pick a place that has special meaning to you or I can help you plan out a location that will be etched in your memory from here on out.

Learn More About My Engagement Packages

Surprise Proposal Pictures Eugene OregonI love weddings and I love the idea for being there for the first steps toward spending the rest of your lives together! For the entire month of February I’ll be offering my proposal packages for 1/2 off! You might wonder exactly what you’re getting, and honestly I would too if I weren’t a photographer. Proposal photos are a pretty new idea and you might be the first of your friends to do them. My basic proposal package comes with all of the following awesome perks:

    • Consultation to determine the location, time, place, and other fine details.
    • Stealthy photos of you before and during the proposal.
    • 30 minute post-proposal session so you have some gorgeous photos to share with friends & family.
    • All of the finalized images on a disk with a limited print release.

So how do you get started? All you need to do is contact me here and let me know you are interested in my proposal package. From there we will iron out the details and I will make sure I am in the right place at the right time to capture the magic unfolding. Also don’t forget to have a clear photo of the two of you handy to share so I will know who I am looking for! While your new fiance wont suspect a thing you still may want to suggest she dress up nice for something special (a picnic date? Romantic lunch at a cafe? etc) I’ve got some tricks to make sure she is prepared for the shoot without even knowing what is coming.

Where to Register for Your Wedding

LaDuke Photography

Where to Register for your Wedding O

Today I had a bride ask me a question that I haven’t given much thought to, “Where should we register for our wedding?” After a little bit of thought I made a list of places that couples may register for their wedding at traditionally. Nordstrom, Macy’s, Target, maybe even Cabella’s or REI, right? As a wedding photographer it’s not usually at the front of my mind.

Then I got to thinking, what if you could register for ANYTHING you wanted without sending an annoying list that reads like this, “We are registered at Shopko, Kmart, 7-11, H&M, Steinmart, Home Depot and Toys ‘r’ Us.” and then I had a moment of inspiration! Amazon.com has a Wedding Registry! And if I’ve learned anything about amazon in the not so distant past it is that you can find nearly anything on there AND add products from sites that are not listed on Amazon such as Etsy stores. They even have a “Top 100” and check lists to make sure you aren’t forgetting anything if you are combining your households for the first time. How GENIUS! Why not make it easy on yourself and your guests, they can just log on, order and have it shipped to them or directly to you. Long story short, you CAN register everywhere thanks to the internet!

This is definitely a tip I will be passing on, from Amazon gift cards to Zumba on DVD they’ve got you covered.
