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

Celebrating a big birthday with big laughs for Sara’s father, Jerry! -Gerald’s Farm, Exeter, RI

Gerald’s Farm, Exeter, RI


On April 11th, we celebrated Jerry Zarrella’s big birthday in style at Gerald’s Farm in Exeter, Rhode Island. Friends and family came out to tell stories and raise a glass for Jerry. It was a western theme with a pig roast from Russell Morin Catering, and the night went out with a comedic roast of the big guy himself. We had a live painter, Vesna Longton, document the night, and we had the Sara Zarrella Photography Photo Booth  popped up for all the guests. Did you see the huge custom western jail backdrop for the Photo Booth?! The night ended with music from local band RipCord and the O’Crepe food truck for late night snacks.

Amy and Hugh met on Martha’s Vineyard, so getting married on a waterfront was an obvious choice. The Hyatt Regency in Newport in the summer is the definition of seaside in Rhode Island as you can get.

Among all the craziness that is photographing a wedding, actually planning your own is on a whole new level! Sara and Steve had a rural Mediterranean-style wedding on her family-owned Gerald’s Farm in Exeter, Rhode Island.
