Friends of Erin Sage Photography

Hi! Welcome to Erin Sage Photography! My love of people and stories has brought me to this place-documenting special moments and I love it! I love that my work never feels like work because it brings me so much joy! Enjoy the blog and feel free to leave a comment! I love feedback!


Johnny and Amanda

Just Because is always a perfect reason for a photo session. It's so easy after you're married to feel like you have to wait to shoot professional portraits again until you have kids! So silly how we all do that.  Johnny and Amanda on the other hand have been married for a few years now, but because Johnny is a ranger in the Army they take advantage of every moment he is home to update the family album!  Johnny has been away fighting for our country in Iraq for the past 6 months. As you can imagine Amanda couldn't wait for him to get home for his 2 week break! These are some photos of the two of them from our brief session in Hilton Head, SC.  Johnny will head back at the end of this week for 6 more months in Iraq before he can come home for good. Such a hard life being an Army wife, but Amanda is so strong and simply waits for her beloved to make it back to her again. Their love is exciting to see, and their joy contagious.  Thank you both for sharing with me!!












A change of pace is always nice. I had the opportunity to do a different kind if shoot this past week. I met up with Danielle Wilson, Miss Charleston County, for a portrait session. Danny will compete for the title of Miss South Carolina in a few months and I know she is going to do great things! Danny is an amazing dancer, so of course we had to get some shots in her point shoes. We basically played for a few hours getting different shots all over downtown Charleston. Some of the images will be printed in the ad book for Miss South Carolina. How exciting! Best of luck Danielle!


















Shelley and Jonathan 

We had an absolute blast shooting Jonathan and Shelley's southern style wedding. The sky was a beautiful blue, the breeze swept through the Spanish moss, and the clouds seemed to roll in at all the right times, not to mention we had an awesome group of people to work with! Myself, Karen, and Brook(my trusty ninja shooters!) joined up with everyone at Boone Hall Plantation for Shelley and Jonathan's outdoor wedding. Looking out at the beautiful Avenue of the Oaks, Shelley and Jonathan joined their lives in marriage. The whole thing felt like it was right out of a movie. The reception at the Cotton Dock was a dessert lovers paradise- every sweet treat under the sun. I fell in love with the architecture inside this place, and the old wooden barn doors gave such a feeling of southern simplicity. Thank you both for sharing these amazing moments with us. I had a hard time choosing my you can enjoy more than a few! Enjoy your new life together in Florence!






















Off to Charleston...

I'm headed to Charleston for the weekend to capture Shelley and Jonathan's big day! They are such an amazing couple and a ton of fun to be around. The ceremony and reception are at Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant- the weather should be beautiful and the scenery is perfect!
