Where do I start? Sage was incredibly responsive to emails through the entire wedding planning process – something that was great since a lot of our questions were time sensitive. His prices were a little outside of our budget, but after reviewing other photographers, we...

An gallery full of GORGEOUS and artistic photos that we will cherish forever. I would hire him again in a heartbeat!

My wife and I hired Sage for our outdoor, picnic-in-the-park style wedding. We were hesitant to work with him because his rates were more expensive than other photographers we were considering. Ultimately the quality of his portfolio inspired us to pull the trigger. Looking... Read More back, we were super glad we did. Sage was awesome to work with. He is passionate about his work and delicately balances both art and science in his craft. He is also unbelievably committed to getting each shot he envisions. During the ceremony he was leaning up against bushes, squatting down, and running from the altar to the grass -- to ensure he perfectly captured each moment. During the reception, he even got on his back in the grass just so he could get the ideal angle of the lawn games we were playing! He somehow was always in the right place at the right time to capture all of our favorite moments from the day. Sage went above and beyond. I treated my best man and groomsman to a hot shave the morning of the wedding. When Sage learned of this, he offered to stop by for a few minutes to capture the moment. But Sage, being the consummate professional and artist that he is, ultimately stayed for an hour documenting the whole experience. This was particularly generous of him, given that he wasn't scheduled to begin working with us until several hours later. Sage was extremely responsive and communicative, which was especially helpful given that we planned our wedding remotely. He was also quick to turnaround photos. Initially he told us we would receive our album 6-8 weeks after the wedding. We received it seven weeks later, and even then he was apologetic for the wait. We originally received electronic access to photos he posted online, and then a week later we received a beautiful box with a USB drive of all photos, as well as about 30 printed 3x5s of his favorites. Stop looking. You've found your photographer.

Sage is a phenomenal photographer. I knew from the first time that I saw his artistic photo-journalistic style that he was someone I'd want to work with, and I'm so glad I did. When you think about it, having your photo taken is a very personal experience (that can easily be... Read More awkward). Sage worked with my husband and I to make sure that we both stayed natural, yet comfortable. Instead of having our photos taken with a photographer, it felt more like we were having our photos taken by a friend. Bonus: I slouch a lot, and Sage would give me reminders to adjust my posture. The photos that Sage took turned out absolutely AMAZING, and I couldn't be happier. In addition to his great work, here's what you can expect when working with Sage: Very quick responses - he WILL make you a priority Professionalism Creativity - he is truly an artist that has honed his craft Speed/Efficiency - Sage is quick, and will be in the background all day. Most of the time you won't even know he's there. To make a new friend. If you're smart you'll stay in touch with him after your wedding;) If you're a couple looking to book a photographer for your wedding: you can stop looking - Sage is it! He will easily be the best money you spend on your wedding and I'm happy to recommend his services to everyone.

We first hired Sage to film our family and capture a few engagement shots as a test before we fully committed to him shooting our wedding. Our experience was wonderful. Sage brings a professionalism and personalization to his work that strike the perfect balance. Needless to... Read More say, we did, indeed, asked Sage to travel a couple of hours away to shoot our wedding. He negotiated a very fair price for his travel and accommodations and joined us for our celebratory event. Because Sage chose to travel on a bus tour we'd arranged for our guests, he even shared with us the candid photos and 'extras' he shot along the way. At the event, Sage was able to get the essential shots while also focusing on the in-the-moment fun we requested. We wed at a private venue in Mexico and the timeliness of the wedding night festivities was not anyone's top priority, but Sage stuck it out for additional time to make sure he captured the key events. We've been equally impressed with Sage's follow up and timeliness with photos, blogs, emails, etc. We have already recommended Sage to many of our friends and we will work with Sage again in the future.

Sage was the perfect photographer to work with on our engagement photos and wedding day. We had been scouring the internet looking for a photographer who had a timeless style that would look great in a wedding album for years to come. We also wanted someone whose skill and... Read More creativity translated into the photos but didn't overpower them or make them feel cheesy. Sage's work is all those qualities. At the first meeting to discuss his packages he was professional and kind. He listened to the specific things that we knew we wanted and the few things we didn't want. The engagement shoot was a lot of fun and a great opportunity to get comfortable and crack a few jokes. It's weird having your picture taken for an hour straight so it really helped that he had an awesome personality and we could just be ourselves. The shots we got from that day are STUNNING (and I'm not just talking about how good I look). On the day of the wedding, as you would imagine, things got very stressful. We had many last minute changes and things missing but throughout all the fuss Sage was calm. Him and his team kept the directions clear and made it easy to breath and capture the moments we'd asked for. Overall it was a blast to work with him and his team. Booking him as a vendor was one of the wedding planning decisions we never had to second guess. Our photos from that day are breathtaking and we couldn't be happier with his work. Thank you Sage for being a dedicated and truly talented individual. It was a pleasure! Tracy & Paul

My husband and I hired Sage to photograph our wedding reception and we are so happy we did! We loved every single picture he took/sent us and our family was really happy with the photos as well. We also got a lot of compliments from our friends - which could have just been... Read More them being nice but we still think he did a superb job. While trying to pick through so many photographers my husband and I had two priorities: budget and style. Sage was willing to work within our budget and tailored a package that fit it and included everything we wanted. Although Sage wasn't the cheapest photographer we found, we realized we were willing to pay a little extra for great pictures that will last us a lifetime. After all, you'll never be able to redo the wedding but you can always save money somewhere else. As for style, we really liked Sage's more than anything we saw. His blog and website have great samples of his work and his photo-journalistic style felt very original compared to most other wedding photography. We didn't want anything too cheesy or cookie-cutter and that's why we picked him. Sage is extremely professional and was very timely in responding to emails, texts, and calls. He also had to deal with my family (and myself) showing up late to our pre-reception photoshoot and he was still able to take a lot of great pictures of all of us. I have nothing but good things to say about Sage and our experience working with him. We also love the wooden USB drive that we got with all our photos! :)

You could tell both of them were having as much fun as the wedding party while being professional, patient and kind to our family and friends. We did a photo shoot the day after on the beach instead of the engagement shoot. Sage was again on time, had really awesome ideas for poses and great angles. Not to mention 5 days after the wedding I asked him for a few pictures that we had taken with the idea to use them as our thank you cards. I sent him an email asking if there was any ways to get those before the quoted 6 weeks. He sent me 6 awesome pictures 10 minutes later! 6 weeks later we got an email letting us know he was almost done and photos would be on the way soon. A few days later we got an email with a tracking number for the USB that he puts photos on for you as well as a link to some photos that we could share right away. I hope I don't have to say this by now, like I said, this is the photographer you have to have! He is more than worth the money in every way possible, I could go on raving about him forever, and I do to everyone I talk to! Book him now!

I'm a foodie, avid movie-goer, and tech geek that picked up a camera 6 years ago and the rest is history! I love to capture spontaneous emotion in weddings. I love to create art with the combination of light, color, emotion, and depth. I am inspired by each and every individual person that I photograph.
