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 love elopements! Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love weddings as well but the intimacy of elopements is like no other. Elopements are so special because there isn’t as much pressure to plan all the little details and the most important thing is to simply get married. Shereen and Ty had an intimate Carlyle House elopement this July. Jeff Maszal with Wedding Ceremonies by Jeff performed a beautiful ceremony with the exact vibe that Shereen and Ty were going for. Only their closest family members were present.
After their quick ceremony, I took a few family portraits and portraits of Shereen and Ty. They are such a gorgeous and in love couple! After their portraits, Ty mentioned how much fun taking photos was and when I delivered their gallery Shereen teared up! She absolutely loved her images.
Shereen and Ty proudly announced their elopement to their family and friends about a month later.
