  • Welcome

    Thank you for visiting our blog!

  • At Sara Zarrella Photography we are Photo Novelists telling a story in every picture. A photo novelist is a fusion of techniques practiced in photojournalism along with fashion photography to create a story through your images.

    A Photograph (often shortened to photo) is an image created by light falling on a light-sensitive surface

    A Novelist is an innovator and/or one who create/writes stories

  • "I think the most important thing is to figure out, early on, who you really are as a person and a photographer and don't stray from it. Be very definite and clear about the kind of pictures you are looking to make and be consistent with it. Do it to your best of your ability and keep shooting! Follow me on my blog as I keep on shooting. Live, Love, Laugh and Shoot Often" -Sara Zarrella

Sara & David – Rosecliff – Newport, Rhode Island



We are proud to announce Sara and David’s Wedding was featured in Newport Magazine 2015

It was a beautiful, hot summer day with a nice breeze, with a couple that was even more gorgeous.:-)

Sara and David have been together since the third grade! How sweet is that? Their long history and close relationships with their friends and family made this a perfect “destination” wedding day for the adorable couple.:-)

Before heading to the ceremony, we met Sara and David at their hotel in Newport, Rhode Island, where they were getting ready for their big day. Sara is super bubbly and David is cool and gentlemanly – what a great match! I really love having the honor of witnessing them living out the day of their dreams. Before leaving to go to the church for the ceremony, they exchanged their gifts and cards to one another, and it was such a sweet, emotional moment for them both. You could feel the anticipation…

After the full, beautiful mass at St. Joseph’s in Newport, Rhode Island, we headed to The Elms in Newport for photographs! We got some really beautiful formal shots there, as well as at Rosecliff. Guests were treated to a Del’s Lemonade truck as they arrived to RoseCliff. The Sara and David were stunning, and their wedding party’s attire complimented them perfectly; the girls wore blush-colored dresses, while the guys looked dashing in their tuxes.:-)

The décor at Rosecliff was grand, with gorgeous florals and so many elegant details everywhere – and a stunner of a cake! This was a romantic evening, full of love and shared memories. Sara and David’s friends’ speeches were so sweet, and the slideshow of pictures of Sara and David growing up together was so special and fun to see!:-)How often do you see two people who dated since third grade get married?

The happy couple danced the night away with their loved ones, as their friend and DJ from New Jersey rocked the house the whole night. This group really knew how to have a good time!:-)

Wishing you many more years of happy memories!
