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.

This is the second time I had the honor of photographing at the absolutely delicious DC restaurant Fig & Olive. Located in downtown DC’s luxury retail shopping destination, Fig & Olive features a variety of unique spaces that capture the essence of the French Riviera. The private dining room is perfect for celebrations like Jennie and Joe’s Washington DC Fig & Olive Reception Dinner.
Jennie and Joe eloped the night before and celebrated over dinner the next evening with their family and friends. What better way to celebrate than with the luxurious food and drinks offered at Fig & Olive. The private dining room was decorated and ready to go when I arrive. The simple, timeless, classy look is my favorite so naturally I adore the private dining room.
I took Jennie and Joe outside for about 10 minutes to capture their first portraits together as husband and wife. Girls, take a look at Jennie’s gorgeous heirloom ring and her adorable cat shoes! They were so sweet and fun! Nothing like having your photos taken in DC.
The rest of the evening was filled with laughter, chatting up, great food, and time together. Thank you Ruth, Jennie’s mother, for choosing me to capture this joyous occasion.
