Hi, I’m Brittany. I am a writer by heart and a photographer by expression. I capture truth, love and intimacy through words and photos—Sage Dove is where I share both. You can expect honest, heartful connection from all of my work.
Northern California Lifestyle Photographer Specializing in Couples & Weddings. Based in Northern California
People often tell me “I feel like I was there” after viewing the photos I’ve made. And that’s just it- I want the moments I capture to be the moment you made a memory.
My job is to catch the light, vulnerability, beauty and organic connection I see between two souls. A fleeting unposed moment that speaks to all the emotion of the day. I use a calm and quiet approach to capture these moments of intimacy and real love. I gently direct my couples from one scene to the next, and I wait for that shimmering thread of realness to sparkle through. A real laugh. A real embrace. A really long deep sigh of comfort. Real abandon.
For me there is a certain magic in the pausing of life, an enchantment in the desire to record an important milestone, and the relationship that makes it what it is. My images speak life. I want you to look at your treasured photographs and know who you are and with whom you belong.
Keep it simple. There is no need to feel stressed about taking photos. My whole process is streamlined and easy so that you only have to be concerned with showing up and having a wonderful time. I want you to enjoy the photo session as much as the photos themselves; we will chat, walk around in nature, and have an easy relaxed time together. I won’t be overly directive, or make you sit in any silly poses, or even force you to smile. I will be there as we play to capture the moments of love between you and your partner. I will portray all the complexity of your love with quiet simplicity.
WHY I DO IT
On my blog you will finds posts about my photographic adventures as well as the story of my personal faith journey. It is where I share my heart and my current walk with Lord. I hope to inspire you to engage with the true lover of your soul. My deepest desire (and reason for sharing so openly) is that you will see in me something so irresistible that you take hold of it for yourself. That you will hunger for a life rich with passion and meaning.
The truest connection we can know is love and that is what I seek to capture.
