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

  • Here is where it all started --My Favorite Toy; A Cannon Lens Cap :)

Jeannie & Matthew Wedding | Castle Hill | Newport, Rhode Island

Jeannie and Matthew tied the knot at Castle Hill in Newport, Rhode Island! When you think about a fairytale wedding, you imagine one like this: a glowing bride, her handsome, new groom, the most gorgeous weather, flowers to compliment the season, their best friends dressed to impress, a venue to die for, a big party, and a love so bright that even the sun doesn’t compare. Our dream couple was blessed with a fairytale wedding like that…and, now they get to live happily ever after! What a way to move to Newport! Many congratulations and thank you for choosing us to capture your big, bright love as you begin your life together! And, of course, GO DRUNK UNCLES!! {Every Picture Tells a Story}

Meet Olivia! | Newborn Portrait Studio Session | Exeter, Rhode Island

Sweet baby Olivia was in the Sara Zarrella Photography Portrait Studio a couple weeks ago for her newborn portrait shoot. She came into the world on August 12th weighing 7 lbs 9 oz and 19.5 inches long. It was a nice last minute surprise to have her mommy call the studio to book a session with us. We are looking forward to watching Olivia grow over the next few years and hope that her and mom become one of our life-long Sara Zarrella Photography families! {Every Picture Tells A Story}


Courtney and Joseph’s Engagement Session | Crescent Park Looff Carousel | Riverside, Rhode Island

We had Courtney and Joseph’s Engagement Session a couple weeks ago at the Crescent Park Looff Carousel in Riverside, Rhode Island. This location was very sentimental to Courtney, as her grandfather used to work there. Fun Fact: Courtney also informed us that this is the oldest and fastest carousel in Rhode Island. If the park wasn’t already sentimental enough to them, throw in the fact that Joseph proposed to Courtney in the park this past year! We’re looking forward to your 2019 wedding at the Providence Public Library in Providence, Rhode Island.


Jenna’s Maternity Portrait Session | Gerald’s Farm | Exeter, Rhode Island

Jenna was here last week for her maternity session at Gerald’s Farm in Exeter, Rhode Island. She looked stunning in her blue gown. Simply glowing! We had the honor to capture Jenna and Richard’s Fairmont Copley Plaza wedding in Boston, Massachusetts back in September of 2015. Now they are expecting their first baby boy in October! We are very excited we get to watch their son grow during his first year through our Chapter One Program. Jenna has two sisters and we have photographed two of their weddings and many of their milestones. It has been an honor to be their family photographers!  We love being able to keep in touch with our fabulous clients and watch their families grow! Jenna and Richard, congrats again and we can’t wait to meet your baby boy in October!
