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.

Heidi and Danny’s Winter River View at Occoquan Wedding was filled with joy from beginning to the end. Witnessing and photographing these two love birds say “I do” was truly an honor. We were all so blessed with the most incredible weather for a January day. Not to mention the light we had was golden perfection!
Since January days are short, Heidi and Danny opted for a first look. We were able to photograph all their portraits, bridal party portraits, and family portraits before the ceremony. After the ceremony, they wanted to have a quick mini date. I’ve never heard a couple ask this before and I thought it was incredibly romantic. Taking time to spend together on one of the crazy busiest days of your life is so sweet. We took photos for about 10 minutes after their ceremony then they were able to relax with each other for awhile before entering into cocktail hour and getting announced for their reception.
Their forrest green color scheme with wood and gold accents was stunning. The wood pieces were hand cut by Heidi’s father and her mother created the welcome sign! Posh Events designed a sweetheart table that looked like it was meant for a styled shoot! It was so incredibly gorgeous! Everything was so well done and absolutely beautiful. I can’t get over every little detail being to well thought out.
A special thank you to all vendors who made Heidi and Danny’s wedding such a success.
