I’m Sarah Botta, an almost always barefoot Virginia wedding photographer and portrait artist based in Winchester, Virginia. 

Being a wedding photographer and portrait artist is the best job in the whole world. I get to meet so many people I otherwise would have never gotten to meet. I love getting to hear stories, getting to know my clients, and capturing memories for them. 

When I’m not photographing weddings, 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.

Wedding planning isn't easy, especially when you're juggling a full time job/ school or when you're planning your wedding in a different state. I know for me I was terrible at making decisions. I had a vision in mind and I wanted everything to be perfect but had no idea where to begin. 

When choosing your wedding vendors, you are choosing your support system. You need a team of people who are there for you, love on you, understand you, and who are super excited for you!

From the first inquiry with me, you will shortly realize that you are not only gaining your wedding photographer but also your midnight texting friend because you just remembered something important to ask; your go-to girl when you need help making a decision with wedding planning and you want advice; and your wedding day hug to help calm you down because you're about to see the love of your life for the first time on your wedding day. You will soon realize that you not only gained a support system but also a lifelong friend.

more than just your

wedding photographer

"My goal is to not only be your wedding photographer but also end up being your friend—someone who supports you, shares in your happiness, and brings enthusiasm and encouragement."

Heirloom albums

My couples love having the option to purchase an album as part of their wedding collection or purchasing an album a la carte after their wedding has past. Albums are truly one of the best ways to relive your wedding over and over again.
