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 :)

Abbie & Wes – Ocean Cliff – Newport, Rhode Island

Happy Anniversary Abbie and Wes!

We are thinking of you today as you celebrate your one year anniversary.

What we love most about our job (other than creating photos) is we get to grow with the families and document their milestones. We have had the pleasure of photographing Abbie’s family over the years, and it still feels special when couples chose us. In 2013, we got to photograph Abbie’s weding, Kellie & Alex had their wedding at the Hotel Viking in Newport, Rhode Island. Now it was her Abbie’s turn to tie the knot!

Abbie & Wes are Newport, Rhode Island residents, so it was only natural to have their engagement photographs taken at a local park (with their four-legged friend too!). They decided to tie the knot at Ocean Cliff also in that little seaside town of Newport. The location was picturesque to say the least, take a look below! The Save-The-Date stationary and Guestbook they chose was created through us here at the Sara Zarrella Portrait Studio also.

To top it off, for the one year anniversary, last week we got to shoot a Trash-The-Dress session with Abbie, her sister Kellie and a few girlfriends. It was a fun day on location with all the girls and their dresses. We can’t wait to share them!  Happy Anniversary Abbie and Wes! Enjoy many more years of love.
