Hello! My name is Sarah Botta and I am a Wedding and Portrait Photographer. The feel of a 4x6 image in my hands reliving captured memories is what lead to me falling in love with photography when I was only 6! It wasn’t until after I got married in 2013, I turned my love for photography into a business. My style is romantic, elegant, classic portraits full of beautiful light. When I’m not photographing anything you can find me enjoying a cup of coffee either from a local coffee shoppe or on the couch with my husband and daughter, exploring the great outdoors, swimming or skiing. I’m known for smiling a lot, being adventurous, enjoying and adapting to any situation. I adore working with adventurous, head-over-heels in love couples and can’t wait to tell your story.
On my blog I share my recent work, wedding planning tips, as well as stories from my latest travels and adventures.

Welcome to the world George! I’m so gad you’re here and healthy! In May, Mallory let me know that she was being put on bedrest and was hoping we could move her maternity session up a few days. It was one of those weeks where the rain just wouldn’t stop and we were going to have to play their maternity session by ear. We got so lucky because we were able to photograph her maternity session a few days early, we beat the rain, and the next day she was admitted. George didn’t come for a week or so after but the doctors wanted to be extra careful. If we hadn’t been able to photograph her maternity session when we did, we may not have gotten the chance.
George came about a month early and the week he came I was about to go on vacation. I was a little nervous scheduling a 14 day old instead of a 10 days old since after day 12, newborns tend to be more alert and not as poseable as a newborn a few days younger. Not the case with George!! This little guy was a dream! He didn’t make a peep during his entire session. I was able to get my normal poses in and be a little creative with a few new poses. He is the cutest little guy and I’m so excited to have photographed his newborn session and met his wonderful parents.
