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.

Brett and Zoe said “I do” on June 24, 2017 in Jackson, Tennessee at The Cumberland House. Their wedding was super special because Brett is my brother in law and Zoe is now my sister in law! I was a bridesmaid in their wedding as well as their wedding photographer. Sounds a little crazy right? It was but I knew it was possible! This wedding extra special because Brett’s father, my and Zoe’s father in law married them! All of Brett’s brothers were in the wedding, all his sister in laws, and our niece, Bria who was their flower girl. I have not photographed wedding where a father of the bride or groom married them but I thought it was an awesome experience and I hope to see it again!
I think the most memorable part of Brett and Zoe’s wedding day was when I walked over to get Brett out of the groomsmen room so he and Zoe could exchange gifts and read their letters. While Brett was walking over to read to Zoe, he started to tear up and it was the most precious thing! Neither teared up, from what I saw, while reading but Brett teared up again when he saw his beautiful bride coming down the aisle. I caught some good tears photos and had to turn away before I started crying!
