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.

With everything 2020 brought, postponed weddings were one of them. Joe and Reshmi had already been planning their wedding for 2 years when COVID shutdown the US in March. They made the incredibly difficult decision one week prior to their Osprey’s Woodbridge Virginia Wedding date to postpone until November. In the blink of an eye, November 8th came and went and they are married!!!
Joe and Reshmi’s wedding was almost 3 years in the making!! 3 years can change a lot in a person’s life and the same holds true as you plan a wedding. They were originally supposed to get married in Georgia but with grad school and work, they ultimately decided to get married in Virginia. Their incredibly talented wedding planner Simply Charming Socials and florist came up from Georgia for this wedding!
Their November wedding was sunny and 75. You literally could not have chosen a more perfect wedding day!!
When Joe and Reshmi booked me, I was so excited to photograph at the Osprey’s at Belmont Bay in Woodbridge because I lived in Woodbridge. It’s not often you get to photograph at a venue less than an hour away from your home. Then good ‘ole COVID happened which created the opportunity for me and my family to move. Now that less than an hour away venue didn’t hold true anymore, haha. I was still super excited to photograph their wedding at the Osprey’s. So excited in fact I couldn’t sleep the night before! I felt like a little kid who was excited about Christmas.
Joe and Reshmi thank you so much for choosing me to photograph your stunning wedding. I enjoyed connecting with you both over the last year and am so honored to have been your photographer. Enjoy all of my favorites from their Osprey’s Woodbridge Virginia Wedding day!
