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.

Randy and Kathryn’s late fall Pond View Farm Wedding was such a chilly day but the sun was out so it was a picture perfect wedding day! Their ceremony had a beautiful pond in the background and they married under and surrounded by weeping willow trees. Fun fact, weeping willows are my favorite tree.
This Pond View Farm Wedding was my first double header after having Ally. Juggling all the things a wedding photographer needs to do and adding pumping every 3-4 hours on top is no easy task. I honestly thought it would be a lot harder but planning a great timeline allowed me to photograph everything I needed without rushing. Soon, I’ll be posting more blogs about juggling life with an infant and photographing weddings since so many people have asked! Don’t get me wrong though, it’s not easy.
This double header weekend was such a great weekend celebrating two couples and I am so happy I was able to capture both. I had no idea that this double header weekend would be my last weddings for months because of COVID-19 shutting everything down in 2020.
Special thanks to the vendors who made Randy and Kathryn’s wedding so special!
