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.

Photographing sunrise DC family sessions are being requested more and more and I am ok with that! How cool is it that we are able to live so close to our nation’s capital and photograph sessions with these incredible monuments!
This particular session was absolutely freezing! We scheduled a sunrise session to beat the DC tourists and took photos at the Jefferson Memorial. My hands were so cold it was hard to move my fingers! The kiddos were absolute champs and gave me some adorable smiles especially when cuddled with mom and dad. I love how clean the images look at the Jefferson Memorial. The background is clean which places all the focus on the family. I love that!
Enjoy some of my favorite images from the Cocca family session.

If you are interested in scheduling a session in DC, please send me an email. DC sessions are only booked at sunrise and the permit process takes a few weeks.
