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.

I got so lucky photographing this gorgeous family at Cabell’s Mill! My photographer friend Erin referred their session to me. I didn’t even realize I had already met them in October of 2016! When I arrived at their family session they looked so familiar and the first thing they asked was if I shot Stacy’s and Mel’s wedding with Erin. Yes! Yes, I did! Turns out Mel (the groom from the wedding two years ago) and Michael (father is this family session) are brothers! Now we can begin singing “it’s a small world after all.”
Yes!! Turns out I met them about 2 years ago! I remember their oldest son, he was a ring bearer in his uncles wedding and only about 1 year old and Denise was pregnant with Arlo! At the time, I thought she might be pregnant but I definitely wasn’t going to ask, haha. I loved their outfit choices for their family session at Cabill’s Mill. Denise even had her hair and makeup done. She looked stunning! It was so neat seeing this family again and getting to photograph all 4 of of them!
