saratoga, ca engagement photography: a little music and dancing

my life has a soundtrack. depending on my mood and the situation, different songs play on repeat in my head. i have theme songs for photo shoots, that help me set the mood and sometimes, if necessary, i start singing in the middle to either a. bring out the laughter in a couple (trust me, if you heard me sing, you'd laugh too) or b. let them know what song i think fits them perfectly. 

for sara and dave, it was easy to set the theme song: lucky, by jason mraz and colbie caillat. it could be that sara has a bubbly, laid back personality, or it could be that dave resembles the barefoot guitar playing mraz. or it could be the words of the song: 

Do you hear me,

I'm talking to you

Across the water across the deep blue ocean

Under the open sky, oh my, baby I'm trying

Boy I hear you in my dreams

I feel your whisper across the sea

I keep you with me in my heart

You make it easier when life gets hard

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend

Lucky to have been where I have been

Lucky to be coming home again

They don't know how long it takes

Waiting for a love like this

Every time we say goodbye

I wish we had one more kiss

I'll wait for you I promise you, I will

congrats on your engagement you two! i can't wait to see what god does in your life together!
