The

Bride

She’s an artist at heart, regardless of her profession. She’s kind and compassionate. She loves animals. She cares about how she looks but she’s laid back enough to let loose and appreciate the not-so-perfect, but really oh-so-perfect moments. She loves the little details, but she also sees the bigger picture. She wants to get married in a lush garden, amidst a flower field exploding with wildflowers or a gorgeous courtyard in New Orleans. She’s an idealist and craves that romance that only comes with a dramatic scene like that. She may not be a hiker but

she dreams of how wonderful the Garden of Eden must have been and is invigorated by the outdoors. She loves ivy covered walls, lush fresh floral, gold intricate details. She's game enough to do whatever for an amazing photo. She puts a lot of thought into how people feel throughout their experience with her as a person, and so her wedding is intentional, detailed and so personal. She's thrilled at the thought of an intimate wedding with soft quiet moments. Her wedding is so much fun, with so much dancing, and she’s the first out on the dance floor. 

Most of all, she’s gorgeous and genuine. Her glow & joy radiates and lights up the room.

A COMPLETE JOURNEY

The Experience

It's no secret that a wedding day is full of joy, but also full of semi-organized chaos. But, photography and your photographer shouldn't be a contributing factor to that chaos. With many wedding days under our belt, our goal is always to be a positive energy, to be problem solvers, to find the best light in any situation. We will be the least of your worries.

We absolutely perform the best when we have your full trust, but we gain that trust through our discovery process and journey together from engagement to wedding. We promise to understand your vision completely before the wedding day comes.

We believe that, as with so many types of art, analog is king but also knowing the best medium to use for the right scene is key. That’s why both film and digital cameras are mainstays in our bags.

So this is our goal – To master light to capture each moment in its perfection. To know exactly which is the best photography medium for the each individual setting, by choosing the right camera, the right film stock, the right editing style. To understand color theory & color palettes and how to tailor these to each individual couple, each individual wedding.

Our wedding couples book anywhere from 8 to 12 months away from their wedding day. Together, we’ll go through a discovery process to find out what resonates with
your vision.

We’ll be in consistent communication about things like shoot locations, outfits, lighting, best times for the best light. I’m all for my couples consulting us on what would make the best photographs and there’s really no such thing as “over” communication.

As we come close to the wedding day, we’ll discuss timeline and shot lists so we absolutely don’t miss anything.

The Heirlooms

In our eyes, both physical prints and digital files have a place in the world we live in today, so all of our Experience Collections come with high resolution digital images and a number of our collections come with heirloom products that will stand the test of time.

We have a 6 to 8 week turnaround time for wedding day images and a 2-3 week turnaround for portraits.

"I literally cried when we got our photos back. I felt so SO beautiful looking at our photos. How often can we say that with complete honesty?! I was floored that they captured my husband and so intimately, honestly and romantically. I love their aesthetic. It's raw and authentic, but beautifully crafted and organic."

-kristy & chris

Our pictures are modern, beautiful, and most importantly, they are our own as they aren’t a replica of any other wedding. No regrets. Starling and Sage are consummate professionals, timely, engaging, personable, and they deliver beyond expectations. Still one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.”


-deidre & cory

Absolutely outstanding work! This married team works HARD, and the photos look effortlessly, chic. Make the right decision to invest in timeless quality with these talented artists.

-emily & ross

Starling + Sage are the dreamiest! As photographers, they have a unique artistic vision, and as people, they are kind and caring. Upon receiving our photographs, my husband pointed to a shot and said, "This one. This is the one we'll show our grandchildren one day."
