Monday

Good morning!

As you know my Mondays have been assigned to Music for the past  5 months and they have been used for inspiration and were added to a collection of mine used for wedding slideshows. It feels right to bring Music Mondays to a close, please let me know if there is anyone out there who is using the songs! If not, I believe the songs have served their purpose for my business and now it is time to move forward.

Have a great Labor Day! To add to this post, here is a photo from yesterday’s wedding. I photographed my cousin’s first look, couples, family, and bridal party…then enjoyed the evening with my family! My cousin is a wedding photographer who I work with, so she had shifts for photographers.

Wedding Ready!

 

Love,Monika

Music Monday | Joshua Radin

LOVE LOVE LOVE Joshua Radin’s  “Beautiful Day”. Such a great song, enough said!

Today is a beautiful day and one of those days where I am feeling optimistic and excited. I am working on my office and am loving the result, more posts to come on that! I also met a lovely couple this morning during a Skype meeting, and had a lunch break with a sweet friend and her adorable baby girl. So yes, today is a beautiful day and listening to songs like this helps me to reflect and appreciate 12 hour periods like this.

*Music Mondays exist to inspire my wedding photography. The artists and songs on these posts are a part of my Monika Greenaway Photography collection that I pull from for my wedding photography slideshows. My goal is to also  provide song ideas for industry peers. Enjoy!

Music Monday | Amy Stroup

Amy Stroup was featured on my blog here with her song “Just You”, and I filed the gem away in my potential wedding slideshow repertoire. I pulled the sweet, guitar picking tune out for my last wedding in Pacific Grove, CA and I love the feel the melody presents with wedding images.

Favorite lyric line “Just you, just you, just you, just you.” Perfectly repetitive.

Beautiful couple: Josh & Melissa

Music Monday | Lovelite

There are so many talented artists that I have discovered since doing Music Mondays. Not only have they been inspiring and good company on my many car rides, they have opened my eyes to music other than mainstream music. And for that I am very thankful ;)

Lovelite is a husband and wife team. They are both worship leaders who are ” inspired by the thought of reshaping the mundane. The band’s anthemic, atmospheric style lays a foundation for its heartbeat: to share in the character of God’s creativity.”

Their music is beautiful.

Music | Monday…I mean Tuesday

Due to a Monday wedding yesterday! Yes Monday! It was so lovely :)…due to a Monday wedding yesterday I did not post my Music Monday post. Maybe it is a good thing I didn’t because maybe I wouldn’t have found Elenowen. Oh. Days are so good when I find new artists that I fall in love with!! Elenowen are a husband and wife duo, and their harmonies…oh. Their harmonies!! Please please please go listen. It’s pure beauty.

Not only do I love that they are a husband and wife team that makes magical music, one of their first albums was called Pulling Back the Veil. Hello…wedding! In that album they candidly share about the ups and downs of their marriage. I love when marriage is not portrayed as this facade of all butterflies and roses but of something that is incredibly hard to do, and at the same time surprisingly rewarding and fulfilling when you both choose to love, sacrifice, really really try for the other person, and give grace. Lots and lots of grace.

Here is one of their songs titled “Head to My Heart”


Love,Monika
