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.

Back in September, we ventured to the mountains of Virginia for a Virginia Mountain Styled Shoot. This mountain shoot was something I had on my dream list since learning about styled sessions. Seeing it come to life was spectacular, especially in the beginning of fall.
We began by setting up in the forested area on top of the mountain. Tables, chairs, florals, and cake were all brought to the top. I focused on photographing details until our models arrived then photographed the real life couple at the set up. We all then walked to the rocky open part of the mountain for some gorgeous sunset photos. My goodness these are my favorite images! With a gorgeous couple, an amazing view, and that golden hour light it all felt like a dream!
We were just featured in a wedding blog Let’s Bee Together. I’m so happy to finally share this Virginia Mountain Styled Shoot with you!
Special thank you to all the vendors who made this Virginia Mountain Styled Shoot possible.
