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.

The best compliment you can give your photographer is by referring your friends and family! That’s how I met the Collins family. The Collins go to church with the Anderson family who I’ve photographed for the last few years. During the Collins Manassas Battlefield Family Session, I found out that they used to live a few small towns away from my hometown! If you know anything about my hometown, you know that it is tiny!! So if you find anyone living in the DC area who is from Shenandoah County, you’re automatically friends if you’re not somehow related.
I had a cancellation a few days prior and it worked out perfectly that the Collins family happened to be available. Since it was such short notice, I didn’t have time to go over outfits with them nor did they have anytime to go shopping for coordinating outfits. When I arrived at the Manassas Battlefield, I saw this sweet family dressed so perfectly waiting for their family session. Seriously, their boys were the cutest!! I was so excited we were able to meet during the busy fall season. What a joy they were to photograph.
