Hey there!  My name is Sage and I enjoy gangster rap, vegetarian food, and MoviePass night.  I'm a Detroit native and have been living in San Diego for the last 6 years - I moved out here with the intention of starting my business and NEVER having to shovel snow from my driveway again.  I love corny jokes, simple cocktails, and all types of movies.  When I’m not shooting weddings, you can find me beach lounging, at the gym staying healthy, or cooking up a storm in the kitchen. Let's take some rad portraits and bond over Pho and movie quotes!

Now on a more serious note - a bit about my approach on your wedding day:

•I show up extra early, completely stoked, and fully ready to document the best day of your life.  

•I take pride in offering a combination of artistic and romantic natural light portraits, as well as cinematic off-camera lighting to make the absolute best at whatever venue you're celebrating at.  

•I strive to capture your day using a photo-journalistic approach that will make the viewer feel like they were right there with you.  I use a combination of light, color, emotion, depth, and geometry in every way possible to help enhance compositions, create a mood, and tell a story.  

•My artistic approach, coupled with my editing, shooting, and lighting style, will give you a variety of unique photos that are consistent, unique, and high-quality.   

•My personal vow to you is that I will put 110% of my energy and creativity into documenting your wedding day and giving you beautiful and unique images that you will cherish for a lifetime.
