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.

Getting to photograph families again is such an honor. I first met the Sammon’s family last fall when their youngest daughter Evalee was born. I photographed the girls again for their Christmas portraits and now I got to photograph the whole family outdoors for their Summer Leesylvania State Park Family Session! Blake and Mandie have the most beautiful little girls! It’s fun seeing them every so often and seeing how much they have grown since the last time.
Blake taught his older daughter to say “whiskey” when taking a photo since it leaves a smile. I had never heard that before and totally used it the next weekend when I saw my niece. Works like a charm!
Here are a few of my favorite images from the Sammon’s Leesylvania State Park family session.
