So for those of you that know me, I take the business side of things very seriously - this includes rarely being late and always being as reliable as possible. When Bridget & Luke inquired about me possibly photographing their wedding, we quickly set a date to grab coffee and get to know each other a bit more. The problem? For the first time ever, my studio management software neglected to remind me about the coffee date, and the stars aligned perfectly because I managed to not check my calendar that morning either. I remember it clearly - I was in the process of editing some photos when I received a call. I quickly answered, and hear, “Hi Sage, we’re over at Lestats and wondering where you’re seated.”Read More
For those of you that don’t know, I picked up a camera almost 9 years ago and exclusively shot nightlife photography (bars, concerts, and events). I switched gears when I first moved to California in 2012 and stopped shooting nightlife for a bit, but then started up again in 2014, where I met Andrew (another fellow photographer) at one of the clubs I frequently shot at. This was also a huge plus because it means that all of Andrew & Jenna’s friends were a freaking blast throughout the day (as you’ll soon see below). Although I knew next to nothing about Jenna and Andrew initially, I really got to know them when I shot their engagement photos (check out their San Diego engagement session here).Read More
I started the day off hanging with Rachel and her family/friends over at Humphrey's By The Bay. I shot some candids & details while the girls got ready and had some fun experimenting with a new piece of glass I just picked up. Once the girls were finished, we brought Rachel outside where Karl was waiting for their first look - such a rad reveal! After, we drove down to Green Acre Campus Pointe in La Jolla (check out these La Jolla wedding photos from another wedding I photographed back in 2016)...
Ever meet someone that's smiling almost all the time? That's Delia - and her smile is insanely contagious. When I photographed her and John at their engagement session at UCSD earlier this year, she brought out the most genuine, awesome laughter and expressions from John that it made the session almost *too* easy. Their wedding ceremony was held at The Immaculata Church on the grounds of University of San Diego, their portraits were taken at Ellen Browning Park in La Jolla, and their reception was at The Cuvier Club.Read More
