Good morning from Orange County everyone! It’s an exciting start to my “naughty nutrition day” and this is one Newport Beach wedding photographer who’s about to kick off the day properly with pint of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream for breakfast. Can I say YUM!
Last week was a totally client-inspired West Coast Wednesday Video Of The Week from Adrienne & Jeremy’s Engagement Shoot at the Montage Resort Laguna Beach. It was a double feature with “I Wanna Be A Cowboy” by Boys Don’t Cry and “Cowboy” by Kid Rock.
Well… this week I’m gonna kick it up a notch and take to the “HNL” as Eugene Struthers would say on MadTV. If you’re thinking you should break out the hair spray, blow dryers, teasing comb and spandex – then you are definitely heading in the right directions for today’s music.
I’m takin’ ya back to when music wasn’t loud enough, the hair wasn’t tall enough and the arenas weren’t big enough to hold the masses of fans that would attend the concerts. I’m talking about Metal Music from the 80’s & 90’s! The best way to get all agro and into the right mind set for the music is to quote the “Sexy DRex” and say: “RWARRRRWWWW!!!!”
Two of my favourite bands that come to mind are Def Leppard with “Pour Some Sugar On Me” (a TOTAL crowd favourite at wedding receptions, parties and clubs) and Slaughter with “Fly To The Angels” – another song that get’s the crowd singing & cheering.
Both songs are special to me, but one thing that is most important to me about the band Def Leppard is how they overcame massive adversity and were able to continue rocking arenas around the world. There is a movie that was shown on VH1 back in 2001 about Def Leppard called “Hysteria.” If you are a fan, or want to know more about the band totally check it out.
So! Before you check out this week’s special, double feature West Coast Wednesday Video Of The Week inspired by Adrienne & Jeremy’s Engagement Shoot tomorrow at The Montage Resort Laguna Beach and you’re thinking… Hey – I’d really like to get to know this Newport Beach Wedding Photographer (Previously a Huntington Beach Wedding Photographer) that loves music & fashion, photography and art, feel free to contact me anytime.
So feel free to sit back with your favourite morning boost of energy, er… I mean “beverage,” enjoy getting your ears rocked a bit with some fantastic metal and I hope you are having an awesome start to your West Coast Wednesday in Newport Beach, Huntington Beach or another part of this crazy world we’re all a part of.
Also remember to keep the “Butterfly Effect” happening and make it a totally positive one for someone else too – cheers!
PS, Here’s an awesome quote I recently shared on Twitter last night that I think helps keep the “Butterfly Effect” moving forward – spreading positivity. “I never wanted to be a businessman, I just wanted to change the world.” Richard Branson That’s a really profound statement to me, because I’ve always felt like that since a small child. I’ve never just wanted to be a photographer, some guy with a camera. But a person that can change the world & make it a better place.
The Super PS, I’m still on the search for a couple TOTALLY AWESOME replacement photographers to join the Esquire Photography team in Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, San Diego and Ventura. If you or some you know understands the importance of wedding photography to brides & grooms along with a zeal for working in the wedding photography business, totally contact me ASAP. Thanks!!!
