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.

In early January, I spent my Saturday morning with the sweetest family and photographed their Bethesda Lifestyle Session. Sweet Natalie just turned 1 year old and when I walked in their home, there were snowflakes hanging on the ceiling. Natalie’s birthday theme was “winter ONEderland”. I must admit it felt pretty magical walking into a home with beautiful snowflake hanging. I can’t imagine how fun it was for sweet Natalie. I told them they should definitely let them hang all winter! Way too cute to take down.
Natalie has so much personality so photographing her was a blast. She’s very smily, she shares her toys with her dogs, not shy at all and all around such a happy girl. Photographing this Bethesda lifestyle session was such a joy from photographing them making their weekly Saturday morning breakfast to enjoying some cuddles in bed.
