Are you currently planning a wedding and trying to figure out what song to share your first dance to?! As a wedding photographer, I see A LOT of first dances and have heard a variety of songs from many different genres. Obviously, the song should be something special between the couple, however, sometimes REALLY great songs get overlooked because couples are bombarded by so many questions when planning a wedding. I wanted to help and suggest some of the favorites I've heard at weddings and a few songs from my personal favorites that would make great options to consider!!
