Sara Zarrella Photography bio picture
  • 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

Erica and Mike are Married! | Warwick Country Club | Warwick, Rhode Island

Erica and Mike are Married!| Warwick Country Club | Warwick, Rhode Island

Erica and Mike had a beautiful and refined wedding at the Warwick Country Club in Warwick, Rhode Island. It was cloudy, but the kind of cloudy that photographers dream about! It created such a beautiful atmosphere for Erica and Mike to say their vows and celebrate their marriage. We had a lot of fun capturing their wedding day. We love it when couples include their pets, and they say a dog is a man’s best friend, right? We like to say “Best Dog”!

Erica and Mike, thank you so much for choosing us to photograph your wedding. It was an honor to capture the true love you hold for one another. And Mike, thank you for serving our country. We are indebted to you and thank you for your sacrifice, for our freedom! We wish you all the love in the world and can’t wait to see how the rest of your story together unfolds.

Tammy and Kevin’s Classic Romance Wedding | Kirkbrae Country Club | Lincoln, Rhode Island

Tammy and Kevin’s Classic Romance Wedding | Kirkbrae Country Club | Lincoln, Rhode Island

Tammy and Kevin were lucky enough to elope to Jamaica for a romantic getaway wedding. They didn’t want to leave their friends and family behind too much though, so once they returned to Rhode Island they started planning a small, private ceremony at Kirkbrae Country Club in Lincoln, Rhode Island so everyone could join in the celebration of this new marriage!

Just because it was small, Tammy and Kevin did not skimp on it being beautiful! The whole day was filled with beautiful details, from a lock and key signifying their love for one another to a surprise proposal (a reenactment for a relative who couldn’t make it to the original one). This was a beautifully personalized wedding for an amazing and sweet couple.

Tammy and Kevin, we wish you all the happiness and joy as you embark on life’s journey with each other by your side. Life is better when you are traveling along with your best friend. Thank you for choosing us to capture your love story!
