Need Help Selecting Your First Dance Song? Song List Inside!

February 4, 2019


Not only do I love photography & weddings, but I am a HUGE music lover!  I love all kinds.  In my opinion, music is free therapy!  I’m always so curious what song my couples select for their First Dance.  I’ve been asked quite a few times for song suggestions & I’ve even been honored to help a few couples pick out their special songs!

Because I get asked this so often, I thought I’d come up with a list of my favorite First Dance Songs. This list a nice mix of current hits, past loves and forever classics

DISCLAIMER:  This is in no way a complete list.  At the time of sitting down to write this post, these are the songs that came to mind that touched my heart.
