Good morning from Newport Beach everyone! This is one sleepy Wedding Photographer that has been on a total British Invasion with music lately. So in the essence of keeping that theme going, I have one heck of a toe tapping, eye brow raising and sassy West Coast Wednesday Video Of The Week to wake you up from Newport Beach.
Now you’re probably wondering why I’m up so early sharing this with you, it’s because I’m heading out for a staff portrait shoot at a dentist office in Huntington Beach that I’ve been hired to do and recording a new episode of “How To Make The Most Out Of Your Wedding Day” too. All starting at 8:00 a.m. – whoa! So tell me I’m not brewing the coffee a little earlier today here at the new Esquire Photography HQ in Newport Beach.
Ok… back to the British Invasion! As I mentioned, today’s Video Of The Week is an eyebrow raiser and a sassy video. But what I didn’t say is that it has two of the most influential, controversial and sexy artist in the music industry.
Robbie Williams (via IMDb): Robbie Williams was born in Stoke On Trent, England on February 13th, 1974. Having played in school productions of “Oliver” and, obviously showing a flair for entertaining, Williams’ mother saw an advert for auditions to be in a new boy band which he applied for and, at age 16, was a member of Take That. After the incredible success of Take That and countless number one hits, Robbie Williams departed from the band in July, 1995. He started his solo career slowly with modest sales for his debut album “Life Thru A Lens” on Chrysalis Records. Record sales exploded after the single “Angels” was released for Christmas 1997 – a beautiful ballad, written within 20 minutes, which recently got voted the second best song of all times by British voters. Since then, Robbie has released 4 more original albums: “I’ve Been Expecting You”, containing the hit singles “Millennium”, “Strong”, “No Regrets” and “She’s the One”, the follow up “Sing When Your Winning”, where he dueted with Kylie Minogue, the million seller “Escapology” and the live album “What We Did Last Summer”, which was recorded in front of 375,000 people at his legendary Knebworth performances.
Kylie Minogue (via IMDb): Kylie Ann Minogue was born on 28 May, 1968. The eldest of three children, Kylie’s acting career began early, but it was her role as Charlene in the Australian soap “Neighbours”(1985) which established Kylie as an international star. Her singing career began purely by accident when a record company executive heard Kylie’s rendition of Little Eva’s 1962 hit “The Loco-Motion”. She signed with PWL Records and hit-makers Stock/Aitken/Waterman in 1987. Five albums and a greatest hits compilation followed, and she made history by having more than 20 consecutive top ten hits in the UK. Her motion picture debut came with the starring role of Lola in The Delinquents (1989). She left PWL Records in 1992 to head in a decidedly more mature musical direction, and her self-titled debut on deconstruction records was released in 1994, spawning chart hits like “Confide In Me” and “Put Yourself In My Place”.

PS, I hope I didn’t disappoint too many people this week as I was unable to launch Monday’s episode of “How To Make The Most Out Of Your Wedding Day” due to moving & AT&T not installing my UVerse (I’ve been using my Sprint MiFi on their 4G network & quite bluntly hasn’t been that bad!). So… in the essence of doing a re-run, totally check out the uber cool and Jagermeister sponsored; DJ Neko who I had the honour of working with as the wedding photographer for my sister; Tawnya & Kurt’s Temecula Wedding Day that I photographed at the opulent Falkner Winery. on the latest episode of “How To Make The Most Out Of Your Wedding Day” – where he’s sharing some terrific advice on how to save some time, some money & your sanity planning your wedding.
PSS, I have a terrific quote that I think might help benefit someone out there reading my website. Check this out – it’s from the movie “Robin Hood” with Russell Crowe!
