Sage is absolutely incredible. I am late in writing this review. Sage photographed our wedding, in the middle of the White Mountains, back in June. I’ve been finding it difficult to eloquently articulate just how great she is. Sage is the sweetest, non intrusive, talented photographer I have ever worked with. I forgot she was there for most of the ceremony and reception. She somehow is exactly where she needs to be to get incredible photos of your most important moments but you don’t even notice her there. We absolutely loved our photos and loved working with Sage. Please do not waste your money on the photographers on here that charge an arm and a leg. Sage was so affordable without sacrificing any quality. We really can not say enough good things about her. Loved Sage, loved her photos, loved being around her, and she made the whole experience awesome.

I couldn't be happier to post this review. My daughter's wedding photos are absolutely amazing! Sage captured the special day, and the couple's personalities, with perfect images. Every photo was clear and memorable. Go no further to find a photographer, she can do everything you want - a true and talented professional.

I met Sage at an open house at Whispering Tree Ranch. I had the opportunity to see her work before hiring her. Her photos were amazing. We hired Sage for our engagement and wedding photos.
I loved them! Perfect picture moments and the lighting, they are just amazing. She is punctual and professional. She is easy-going, makes you feel like you know her! I would recommend and I will use her again!

I signed up for the Knot just so I could review Sage and help brides snag an amazingly talented, supremely intuitive, easy-going and FUN photographer! Sage is patient, observant, and very creative, we loved our albums (2 separate albums, one we shared with guests, one we kept private so that we had images to add to Thank You cards, etc...) so much - there's so much that she caught that we never even knew about! The images were so beautiful that everyone is now posting them on social media. Truly, hiring Sage is a gift to yourself because she is so thorough, artistic and insightful, and a gift to your guests who will love to see and use the images afterwards. Sage is the best! 1000% would hire again!

Oh my gosh, Sage is the bee's knees and the cat's meow and the best thing since sliced bread all rolled into one cute, blonde, hard working package. She did my wedding and it seemed like she was everywhere at once without ever being intrusive or bossy. She got beautiful, classic photos that look like they belong in a magazine in addition to a ton of cute candids that took me back to all the funny/sweet, unplanned moments during our wedding . She has a real gift for capturing the personalities of the people she photographs and I think that really sets her apart from your standard wedding photographer. My husband and I just went through our pictures last night and they made us laugh, they made me tear up a little, and they made us wonder how she took so many pictures of the ceremony from so many different angles without us ever noticing her running around. My husband even said (and I quote) "These look better than what you see in a magazine." She really is amazing and I can't recommend her highly enough for your wedding.

Sage came highly recommended to me as a wedding photographer and after meeting with her I knew why. She is professional yet very easy going and fun to be around. We met prior to the wedding and were in frequent contact with one another leading up to the event. Our pictures were edited and available to us quickly without sacrificing quality. Our photos turned out exactly how I was hoping they would! I would highly recommend Sage as a photographer for your any of your upcoming events! I will definitely keep her contact information in my phone for future photo opportunities 😊 Thank you for being awesome Sage! 💜

Our engagement photos turned out better than I could have ever imagined! Sage truly captured the love between my fiancé and I, as well as the personalities of our dogs! I can’t wait for her to shoot our wedding!
The photos we received from Desert Sage Photography were every bit as amazing as the photos in her portfolio. She truly has a gift of vision. And she made everyone feel super comfortable and at ease. If you want photos that you will love and not regret the investment for, she's your woman.
Absolutely wonderful to work with and we are so so happy with our photos! Sage was able to perfectly produce the style we wanted in our photos and was able to catch so many wonderful details. I literally got teary going through them. It was like reliving the day but even better. Thank you so much Sage!
Sage is creative and is good at understanding individuality. You can feel that she cares about the smallest of details. Her patience is noteworthy and I'd highly recommend her expertise to my friends and family. Thanks so much!
I made the (questionable) decision to wed inside the inferno of an Arizona August. Despite this, Sage enthusiastically sought out and captured the most intimate moments our the day. Our photos have a uniquely artistic and technical quality to them. I look back on them fondly and am indebted in gratitude to Sage for helping to make perfect, this otherwise intolerably hot day. Thank you!
