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.

Happy Monday! Time for another weekend roundup! Can you believe that it’s now August? Kids in my hometown started back to school today. June and July felt like a blink of an eye.
What a gorgeous weekend for a wedding! We finally saw the sun for the first time in about 3 weeks. It was super hot and so worth it. Sarah and Jon are the sweetest and most fun-loving couple. They had an amazingly gorgeous wedding in their home town of Essex, Maryland and a stunning reception at Water’s Edge Events Center. I can’t wait to share the entire gallery with you but until then, here are a few sneak peeks!
A few take aways/ lessons learned from this weekends events:
– I have an emergency bag that I bring to all my weddings filled with essentials like a small sewing kit and bandaids. This weekend I realized I should add in deodorant! 90+ degree weather is whew!
– Place snacks in my camera case instead of leaving them in the car! Some snacks melted and they did me no good in the car, haha.
Yesterday evening, I was able to meet Katrina and Anthony for their maternity session. Loved Katrina’s pink dress! They are having their baby girl in September!
