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.

The time has come to say goodbye to another NOVA family as they start their new journey in another state. I loved capturing their farewell family session in Old Town Alexandria. In this area I feel like it’s inevitable. Families are always moving here and moving away a few years later. Over the last two years I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous family. It’s wonderful getting to meet so many families and building relationships with them but when I get so sad then I hear the news that they are moving away.
To remember their time in the area, I wanted to photograph their family session in an iconic location. What better location than Old Town Alexandria!? Luckily the grandparents are staying in the area so there is a good chance I’ll get to see this sweet family again. Their two little girls are just as sweet as they are cute. They are so well behaved and I always love photographing them. Seriously, angels!!
Enjoy a few of my favorites from their Farewell Family Session in Old Town Alexandria.
