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.

When Jess first reached out about photographing her fall Shenandoah Valley Wedding, I knew I just had to photograph her wedding. Woodstock has a population of about 5,000 so it’s very rare that I have the opportunity to come back to Woodstock for a wedding. Jess and Marty shared their wedding day vision and I knew would be gorgeous! Between the Blue Ridge Mountains in the background and photographing such a sweet, fun couple I knew I wanted to work with them.
The day of Jess and Marty’s wedding was beautiful! Pretty hot for a fall afternoon but the sun was shining and her family was hard at work putting all the finishing touches on everything. Jess and Marty along with their family transformed the Shenandoah River Lodge. They did a lot of landscaping and decorating the weeks and days leading up to wedding day. All that hard work paid off because the end result was gorgeous!
Surrounded by their friends and family, Jess and Marty had a super fun and beautiful wedding with a gorgeous sparkler exit. Thank you Jess and Marty for choosing me to capture your wedding day. It was an honor working with you!
Special thank you to all vendors who made Jess and Marty’s wedding so special.
