Native Lights is a weekly, half-hour radio program hosted by Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe members and siblings, Leah Lemm and Cole Premo. Native Lights is a space for people in Native communities around Mni Sota Mkoce — a.k.a. Minnesota — to tell their stories about finding their gifts and sharing them with the community.
On today’s show, we talk with Sage Yeager (Prairie Island Indian Community) who is a videographer for intimate weddings and elopements. Sage combines her “love of love” with her filmmaking skills to create beautiful videos commemorating a couple’s big day.
We loved getting the inside scoop from Sage about what it takes to plan and produce these lovely wedding videos for couples taking the plunge. And we hear how Sage first uncovered her passion and talent for filmmaking, and why she chose this niche of video production. Plus, Sage gives us her tips on how she “pops up like the paparazzi” when hired to film a marriage proposal. Enjoy this fun conversation with Sage Yeager!
