My goal is to not only give you epic portraits and preserve once in a lifetime moments, but to make THE PROCESS an experience so that you actually have fun.
Hey there! My name is Sage and I enjoy gangster rap, vegetarian food, and AMC A-List night (RIP MoviePass). I'm a Detroit native and have been living in San Diego for the last 7 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.
Here's a photo of me accidentally looking like Indiana Jones outside of an abandoned building in Salton Sea, California taken by my buddy Josh Mitchell.
