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.

There is nothing quite like the cherry blossoms in DC. It’s the only reason I would wake up at 5am, drive to Arlington, park, and take a taxi into the city. You may ask, why wake up so early and photograph at the Tidal Basin? Once 10am hits, the Tidal Basin becomes very crowded and no one wants to have random people in the background of their images. When I get to photograph families like this, it makes it all worth it! The Turner family was so much fun to work with not to mention they were dressed to impress!! I love the way their outfits coordinated! Their kids were some of the most well behaved kiddos ever and not to mention they were flat out adorable! Do you see those hands in his pockets, oh my goodness. This session was only 15 minutes and I can’t believe how many great images we got. They nailed their walking image which is probably my favorite! We got really lucky with the weather also! It was a little chilly but not that bad! The day was gorgeous and the sun was shining! Everything worked out perfectly! Here are a few of my favorites from their DC Cherry Blossom Family Session.
