Life update: August 2018

Hey guys! So, this isn't your typical wedding video blog post (but don't worry, I've got some coming your way!), but I wanted to hop on and introduce myself for anyone who doesn't know me yet and fill you in on everything that's happened this August.

To start... Hi! I'm Sarah and I am the lady behind Gold + Sage:

Joshua Tree

 I got into videography on accident in college and fell in love with the art! One of my friends thought I was a photographer and gave my name to a wedding video company who was looking for some help over the summer. They asked me to assist on some shoots to which I told them, "Sure I'll come, but I've never touched a camera before." They took me in anyways and taught me the ropes and over the next year or so I began to film weddings on the reg and my life has never been the same! There's something really special about documenting love. Being the one who gets to preserve memories for generations to come is a privilege and an honor, and one I've thoroughly enjoyed the past 3 years. 

So, that's enough about me. Now it's time for you to meet the hubs:

This hunky man is Andrew - he is the calm to my crazy. My personal, in-home IT support. The best pupper dad to Luna. He's my biggest fan and will always be my favorite person to eat cereal on the couch with while watching Netflix. He works for the YMCA as a business data analyst and is always trying to analyze my business (which will never happen because if he knew how much is costs to run this business, he would die). He loathes (but secretly loves) it when I make him do these photo sessions because we get to remember these trips in a special way. This California trip was one for the books - maybe one day I'll tell you the whole story....

So, that's us and we have some fun August news:
1. My computer died and I had to get a new one and it's super speedy and I'm so excited. 
2. We bought our first house! Below are some terrible iPhone photos, but they'll do for now. She's a little bit of a fixer-upper but nothing some paint can't fix. We're so in love with this little ranch and are excited to spend the next few years here in the heart of Apex growing Gold + Sage and making memories. I'll keep you posted as we paint our cabinets and renovate the kitchen and you can always follow along on Instagram at @goldandsageweddings

Fall Update

Fall Update:

Hello lovelies! Thanks for stopping by. September has been my down month and I am so thankful for some time to spend with my husband, doggo, and friends! September is one of my favorite months here in the south. The summer heat has died down (a little), it’s bearable to be outside, the cool fall breezes start to kick up, and all the stores are prepping for fall! I’ve got some big goals for the remainder of 2017, mostly personal and some professional.

Here’s my fall snapshot:

  1. 6 weddings left for the year
  2. 5 Family birthdays + mine! (all in October!)
  3. OUR FIRST MARRIED: Birthday, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas (okay, Christmas is technically winter... But still.)
  4. Craft parties, coffee dates, and bible studies with the ladies

Fall Goals:  

  1. Work out every week day
  2. Find a better work/life/media balance - For our family that means all phones, tablets, and computers are OFF by 8pm. We’ll see how this goes ;)
  3. I’ve started a chronological bible study and hope to finish it by the end of 2018. It’s a 1 year plan, but knowing my reading habits, I’ll need the extra 4 months to end on time!
  4. Finish my 6 audio books that have been in the que since March…
  5. Record 2 E-courses: Admin. for Photographers and The Quick Start Guide for A Home Based Business


What’s on your list for the fall?
