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.

Congratulations Kevin and Brittany who said “I do” on a rainy fall day in September. Driving to this venue was gorgeous. Even though it was raining, I just looked through my windshield and was in awe of how beautiful and rural this countryside was. For some reason, I thought Purcellville was much more urban. I knew that this venue was going to be gorgeous and it was. I walked into a room that was warm and inviting, full of people setting up decorations, gorgeous flowers, and sparkly lights. I walked into the bridal suite where Brittany and her bridesmaids were getting ready and immediately wanted this room as my bedroom! I loved the wall color and it was beautiful, relaxing, full of sparkles, mirrors, and of course lots of champagne.
Kevin and Brittany wrote letters to each other and as Kevin read his letter, he chuckled because of how similar his letter was to Brittany. They both mentioned the exact number of days they had been together. They were both ready to finally say I do after more than 2,000 days together.
Brittany looked so beautiful walking down the aisle with her Dad. She and Kevin are such sweet people and it’s so easy to see how much they care about each other. They were such great sports about having a rainy wedding day. I was able to take photos of them outside with a cute, clear bubble umbrella and even a few without it. Brittany’s dress got to wet at the bottom, Kevin referred to it as a mop by the end of their portraits. I think we’d both agree it was worth it.
Enjoy images from Kevin and Brittany’s wedding.
