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.

This was my second DC Cherry Blossom Engagement Session for 2019! DC Cherry Blossom sessions make for some super early mornings but are always worth it. Melat and Kinfu met me at the Jefferson Memorial and we walked around the National Mall capturing their engagement photos. How incredible are they dressed? Melat even had her friend who is doing her hair and makeup for their July wedding do her hair and makeup before their engagement session!! We met at 6:45am so I can’t imagine when they started. Talk about commitment!
The weather was perfect for a DC Cherry Blossom Engagement Session. I even met a tourist from CT in town for business who spend his morning photographing the blossoms and taking in the views before getting back to business. I told him he was blessed with the most perfect day!!
Melat and Kinfu are getting married this July in Alexandria. Can’t wait to photograph and watch them get married!
