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.

Every year since 2011 I’ve gotten an email from the Pifer family wanting to schedule their annual family photos. We usually schedule their family session in my hometown when I am in town for either Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Years. This year we scheduled their family session in Edinburg, Virginia, a very special place in my life because this is where I got married! I’ve watched their children grow older, get taller and become little ladies. This year, their family session was extra special because they had another baby girl! She was absolutely gorgeous! She reminded me of a little Tinker Bell. Throughout their session, I found it a bit humorous that I kept thinking their youngest child just appeared. The Pifer’s are now a family of 5!
As the baby of the family, you can tell she gets lots of love and snuggles with her two older sisters around. For the first time, more than any year prior, I could really see each of the daughters unique personalities. The funny thing is, they reminded me of me and my sisters when we were younger!! You have the oldest, me, who is independent and sassy. The middle child, who is slap happy, running around and loves horses. Then you have the beautiful youngest child, who the older two sisters just adore!
Thank you Pifer family for being so faithful to me all these years. I truly seeing and photographing your sweet family every year.
