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.

Morgan and Ross said I do on a beautiful day in March at their Spring Riverview at Occoquan Wedding. Morgan and her girls began the day by getting ready in a super adorable AirBnB in Occoquan then took a quick 10 minute car ride over to the venue just in time for their first look. Morgan and Ross make the cutest couple and I told them they reminded me of Barbie and Ken! I told them I was sure they heard that all the time and Morgan laughed when she said that was the first. Wait what?!
Their day was filled with friends, dancing, and a super fun time! Once they were introduced at their reception, the band got everyone off their feet, clapping, dancing, and really got the energy up! It was so sweet watching the two of them having so much fun.
Here are a few of my favorites from their March RiverView at Occoquan wedding.
