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 | Priscilla Ahn

Priscilla Ahn’s song “Dream” reminds me of so many memories.

Gina-One of my best friends. She walked down the isle to this song on her wedding day four years ago.

My Dad-it’s one of his favorite songs that I sing and he watches my “Dream” cover from 2009 on youtube often ;-)

Adam-Contrary to popular belief, he can hit the high, soft, angelic notes  while singing along and it is very impressive.

College-My roommates and group of friends from Fullerton regularly played music together since 3/4 of us roomies were musical. And the fourth…she blew bubbles for this music video to contribute as you will see below. This is the reason for my laughing throughout the video.

Happy Monday!

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

Music Monday | Ernie Halter

Today’s artist has SOUL. S-O-U-L. I love it! I am totally into Ernie Halter’s voice, lyrics, and head bobbin vibe in love song “Something’s Come Over Me”

To license Ernie’s song for your wedding photography slideshow go here.

Lyrics

I wanna make you laugh
Scratch your back
I wanna hold up our arm.
Make you feel like that
I wanna rock our boat.
I wanna let you know
Something’s come over me

God knows, how hard it has been
How many tears you have cried
Over him.
Now I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna I don’t wanna
To be there to shake your chain.
Be so vain.
Let my patience explain.

Something’s come over me
That’s all I’m going through
One more day, in this life
I’m so messed up over you

I wanna rock your boat
Baby, I wanna let you know
Something’s come over me.
Over me

Music Monday | Perfect For Me

Oh my gosh!!! This song is so fun. It won me over 5 seconds into the song. So cute, catchy, and sweet. Zach Berkman’s song “Perfect for Me” is great for that fun pair who is full of energy and spunk :)

Speaking of an adorable duo who is perfect for each other, here is a photo of a couple I photographed 1 year ago today. Happy Anniversary Anthony & Eva!
