Welcome to the Blog!

I'm Amanda, a 20-something wedding photographer from Tillsonburg, Ontario. I love all things beachy, quiet nights watching Netflix, spending time with my horse, indulging in sushi, and of course, photographing couples on their wedding day!

On the blog, I share galleries from recent sessions and weddings, LOTS of wedding advice, and fun behind-the-scenes of my business.

The Best Song Choices For Your First Dance

1. Can’t Help Falling In Love With You- Elvis Presley

This timeless classic always makes the heart melt. Perfect for classically romantic weddings.

2. To Make You Feel My Love- Josh Kelley

The Adele version of this song is super popular, but the first time I ever heard it, it was perfected by Josh Kelley. It’s always a good go-to slow dance song!

3. Marry Me- Train

I’m not a crier, but Marry Me nearly brings tears to my eyes. It’s so emotionally raw and romantic. If you choose this song for your first dance, I can pretty much guarantee the tears will be flowing from everyone in the room!

4. When You Look Me In The Eyes- Jonas Brothers

Hey there, millennial. This one’s for you. The JoBros are basically perfect, and with their recent comeback, you can’t not have this late 2000’s classic play at your wedding.

5. I Won’t Give Up- Jason Mraz

If you want a soft but passionate first dance song, you’ll love “I Won’t Give Up”. It’s just way too cute!

6. Lucky- Jason Mraz ft. Colbie Caillat

I was obsessed with this song when I was 14. Obsessed. So naturally, it has to make the list. It’s beachy, pretty, romantic, and all things wedding. Top choice for a summer or destination wedding!

7. Amazed- Lonestar

A country classic. This is a #1 choice for country weddings!

8. I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing- Aerosmith

This classic rock hit is perfect for the romantic bride with an edge!

9. Speechless- Dan + Shay

How do I even put this into words? If you play this song for your first dance, you’re officially my favourite bride ever. I have listened to this song on repeat for hours at a time. It’s PERFECT.

10. Better Together- Jack Johnson

This song is so cute and sweet! It’s a bit more upbeat and not quite as “mushy” as the other songs on this list, so if that’s what you’re looking for, look no further!

11. Then- Brad Paisley

Another song that every country girl dreams of having her first dance to! It’s about eternal love and commitment, and what better theme could you possibly dream of dancing to?
