June Music Favorites | Personal Post

Here I am again! Another month gone in the blink of an eye! How can June already be passed??? I remember doing Scott and Michelle's engagement session and feeling like their wedding date was so far away, their wedding has not come and passed but it still feels like we just shot their engagements! And I remember feeling so excited for Becca and Mike's wedding, but again, it felt so far away! 

So I've been in my new apartment for a month now. I'm largely settled in, but still have a bit of unpacking to do. It has been a little crazy trying to unpack/move in the myst of wedding season. I told myself I wouldn't move during wedding season...but alas, here I am! But it's worth it, this place is wonderful. Also I get to dog sit this adorable puppy for the summer and it's the best. It's so nice having an added excuse to go on walks and do some exploring in the neighborhood. He's ridiculous, but also just about the cutest ever. He also is great for meeting people, cause just about everyone wants to pet him when they see him. He knows how cute he is too, he gets offended if you don't want to pet him and just walk by. He will actually stop, and stare at the person as they walk past you. Hahaha I don't know how I'm gonna give him back! Ahhhh! :(

Without further ado, here are some of the songs that have been my favorite this month:

Shine On Me

I've been loving this track since I first heard it on the radio last month. I love the old sound it has, I played it for my parents and asked them when they thought it was from; they guessed 60s/70s :)

4ever + She's So High

My roommate and I watched both She's the Man and She's Out Of My League, both having super awesome-memory-trip soundtracks. (

Anderson + Roe

My dad was in a symphony growing up, and played violin for years, so some of my first CDs as a kid were classical music. Ever since I've always had an appreciation for classical music. I discovered the "Pop Goes Classical" spotify playlist and have been loving it ever since. There are some pretty awesome gems in there.

Genius Of Love

So this song was in the Gilmore Girls - Year In the Life (which I still want to know why they didn't put out a soundtrack for) and it's been on a playlist ever since.

Rich Girl + Wagon Wheel

...may have been sung at karaoke with some friends this month...

Eric Hutchinson

I've been a fan of EH for a while, finally got around to listening to his new album, can't say I was disappointed. 

Pokey LaFarge + Allen Stone

I went to Summerfest on Day 2. Though I hadn't heard of either of these people, I heard their music while walking the grounds and went home to look up who I had been listening to! (Also Central Time....so relatable) 

Hanson

Okay, I could write a big long post about Hanson....fo real... This is who I was going to see at Summerfest. (yes they're still around...they never left....don't get me started hahaha) They are on their 25th anniversary world tour, the Middle Of Everywhere tour. I may have already crossed seeing them live off my bucket list 5 years ago, but I was just as excited this time around. (just realized that was a hanson pun...)

Perfect

This is such a sweet song, it was Mike + Becca's first dance song <3

Not sure if many/anyone is reading these, but I've had fun making them! It has also encouraged me to listen to some new artists, which I love! 

What songs have you been loving this month?

May Music Favorites | Personal Post

So I decided I wanted to try something new out on the blog. I was trying to think what I enjoy that would make a good regular post to put out. Something that was more personal and not necesarily business related. Right around that time I was procrastinating and had realized that you can upload your own playlist covers on Spotify, so I was creating covers for a bunch of my favorite playlists. That mixed with my general love of music, and the fact that the bulk of when I listen to music is while I'm editing photos, I decided I would try out creating a playlist of some of the songs that I love that month. 

Here is the full playlist. 
You will quickly realize I have a pretty diverse taste when it comes to music. 

I'm not sure if I'm going to stick with this every month, but we'll see. I'm going to give quick descriptions/explanations as to why I was loving some of the songs on the playlist. What do you guys think? 

Dancing Through Life

Literally no idea why this got stuck in my head. I love this soundtrack, but if I'm honest this has been one of my least favorites on the album. But for whatever reason it was stuck in my head for pretty much an entire day!

Sweet Creature

Okay y'all. I'm telling you. Say what you will about One Direction, but Harry Style's album is actually pretty dang good. (but this is probably my favorite track from the album)

hear me

Last month Njomza put out an ep. I did work with her on a few occasions back in 2012. I was excited to see her put some new stuff out. hear me is definitely my fave.

Love Someone

I love hearing the stories behind couple's first dance picks. This was one I hadn't heard until Jared + Erin's wedding 2 years ago. It lives in my "Lovey Dovey" playlist on spotify that I listen to all the time while editing weddings and engagement sessions.

The Beatles

So I have a few Beatles songs on here. Some of them are on there just cause I love them (I've Just Seen A Face) But then a couple of them are there for specific reasons. Honey Pie is on there, because my best friend (and now roommate) went out to the Milwaukee Restaurant Honey Pie for dinner while we were waiting to hear if we got approved for our apartment.
Blackbird is on there because Steve + Emily's wedding day was filled with Beatles songs, the one I remember the most on their day is Blackbird.

P.Y.T.

Also on Steve + Emily's wedding day this song was played... My second shooter, Aysha, called me out when I started "groovin" along to this song during the reception. Apparently I dance like a white person. Go figure! :)

I hope you enjoyed this! It was fun to put this together and just do something lighter on the blog! Let me know if you like this kind of post and if you want to see more!
