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.

James and Rachel said their vows in Myersville, Maryland on November 4th 2016. On my way to their wedding, I was driving in the middle of nowhere on a one lane dirt road. It was amazing! I felt like I was back at home driving through the country roads. Since fall came so late this year it was absolutely gorgeous driving through the woods and seeing all of the orange and yellow leaves. When I arrived, the owner showed she around and told me of an easier route when I left for the evening. Super good thing I was paying close attention to what she said because I didn’t have GPS for a few miles!
With each wedding I photograph, I normally experience something new. This wedding, I experienced two new things! I was finally able to photograph a wedding where the bridesmaids had on those beautiful gold sequence dresses that have become very popular and the bridal party had a bridesman! Now of course he didn’t have on a gold dress, haha.
We all know wedding timelines don’t always go as expected. Things aren’t set up, people come late, someone goes missing, etc. and sometimes you’re just fighting with sundown. In the fall the sun sets so early! We had about 20 minutes to photograph James and Rachel before it was too dark. Photographing James and Rachel was such a joy and they rocked their portraits in 15 minutes! They were so relaxed, photogenic, and simply in love. I absolutely love their wedding portraits. I was almost speechless when taking them because I was in awe of how stunning they looked! Their wedding was probably my favorite this year.
Enjoy images from James and Rachel’s beautiful fall wedding at Ostertag Vistas in Myersville, Maryland.
