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.

On a fall Sunday evening, I met Robbie and Hillary for the first time for their Jones Point Park Engagement Session. The October evening was absolutely gorgeous and Jones Point Park was the most packed I had ever seen it. During their session I counted 7 other photographers at the park! Yes, you read that right, 7! That didn’t phase Robbie or Hillary at all! They just snuggled right up together and enjoyed every second of their engagement session.
During our time together, Robbie told me about his proposal. He said he had hidden the ring box in the top of his hoodie so Hillary wouldn’t find it. This was a pretty clever idea! He explained that he was so nervous right before popping the question his hands were sweaty. Hillary said she knew something was up. But of course Hillary said “yes” and now they are planning their 2018 wedding. Proposal stories are the most romantic stories to hear. I was so happy I was able to meet and photograph this lovely couple. They were so sweet and so in love.
