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.

We had the perfect day for Nick and Rebecca’s fall engagement session at Leesylvania State Park! After having to reschedule once because of rain, I was hoping we wouldn’t need to reschedule again! Rebecca was also hoping we wouldn’t have to reschedule again because she was so looking forward to her engagement session. The morning of their engagement session was not looking very promising but by the afternoon it was beautiful!
We started off their engagement session by introducing ourselves and giving big hugs, of course! I’m a big hugger. I love to give and receive hugs. One thing is for sure, when we meet, I will hug you! Then we jumped right in! I had three different locations in mind at the park and all three were beautiful! Nick and Rebecca looked great! They were dressed up and Rebecca was rocking her heals! Those things are tall! It was fun photographing them while getting to know them a little better. They had never been to Leesylvania State Park. Friends told them how beautiful the park was they mentioned that’s where they were having their session. They were excited to see a new place and let me be creative!
Nick and Rebecca got engaged in July and are now planning a summer wedding looking for the perfect venue.
