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.

My husband and I got married in May of 2013. Danny had an internship he needed to finish in DC to finish his degree and we thought living in Northern Virginia would be temporary. While we figured all this out, Eric and Jess graciously opened their home to us. Eric is like an adopted brother in the Botta family. He grew up with the Botta boys and is such a good family friend. What a blessing Eric and Jess were to us when we first got married!!
At the time, I wasn’t even photographing newborns. There was a newborn photographer in my home town that specialized in newborn photography. I remember thinking how good she was and thought it never be something I’d be interested in. I photographed my first newborn in January 2015!
While Danny and I were living with Eric and Jess they didn’t have children yet. Fast forward a few years and they announce their second pregnancy to us at a family gathering in September 2017! It feels like time literally flew by because here it is already February 2018 and precious little Lily Noelle is here! Lily came into my Northern Virginia newborn studio when she was 7 days new. I can already see the resemblance between her and her sister Ivy. It was so much fun getting to photograph this sweet pea for Eric and Jess.
