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.

Almost 2 years ago, I second shot a wedding at Silverbrook Farm. The lead photographer was friends with the couple but lived out of state. A few months ago, the bride Emily reached out to let me know she and Eric were expecting!! Now little William Claiborne is here and he is the sweetest little peanut.
Seeing Emily and Eric again was like seeing old friends. Even though I had only met them once, it’s like we picked up right were we left off. Photographing their wedding, maternity, and newborn was such a fun experience. One of my favorite things about being a wedding photographer is the journey doesn’t end. I get to be a small part of their lives by documenting such important milestone moments like growing their family.
This little peanut was such a champ during his newborn session. He barely made a peep the whole session and let me pose him just the way I wanted. See a few of my favorites images of 9 day old William Claiborne below.
