If I haven’t captured your wedding day yet, I have to tell you something. I’m the photographer that you’ll find getting down with the beat. You’ll find me singing along to all of the top songs, camera in hand! It’s just going to happen, so you might as well accept that now. But I mean, you’re hiring a great DJ or live band, so can you really blame a girl? Before I ramble on about great music, let’s get onto the point of this post…

We chose Today by Brad Paisley, but then Chris Stapleton released Millionaire like a week after our wedding… otherwise we totally would have danced to that. We’re such music people!


It was Sweet Creature by Harry Styles!


Our first dance was to Perfect by Ed Sheeran!


Our first dance was to Someone Like You by Van Morrison!
