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

Samantha and Jason’s Engagement Session! | Narragansett Beach | Narragansett, Rhode Island

Samantha and Jason’s Engagement Session! | Narragansett Beach | Narragansett, Rhode Island

Samantha and Jason are getting married next September at the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Providence, so what better way to celebrate the 356 day countdown with a beautiful engagement session? We met Samantha and Jason at Narragansett Beach in Narragansett, Rhode Island to take some pictures that looked a little bit more like summer than fall, but we weren’t complaining – anything to cling to a few more warm summer days on the beach is fine with us! We had so much fun exploring the beach, Coast Guard house, and Hazard Rocks. It was a day filled with genuine smiles, laughter, and love and we can’t wait for next year to photograph Samantha and Jason’s wedding day!

Sarah and Daniel are Getting Married! | Providence Public Library | Providence, Rhode Island

Sarah and Daniel are Getting Married! | Providence Public Library | Providence, Rhode Island

Last week we met with Sarah and Daniel in downtown Providence, Rhode Island at the beautiful and historic Providence Public Library to take their engagement pictures! We love a classy couple and Sarah and Daniel definitely fit the bill. We spent time exploring the library, venturing through the grand hallways and staircases. After awhile we moved the party outside and had some fun playing in the evening light at Prospect Terrace Park. We love how obvious it is that Sarah and Daniel are in love with each other and it was a pleasure to capture on camera.

This is only the beginning of their story – we cannot wait to see Sarah and Daniel again at their wedding next June at the Aldrich Mansion in Warwick, Rhode Island. Until then, happy wedding planning 🙂

Jennifer and Michael’s Authentic Clam Bake Wedding | Saunderstown, Rhode Island

Jennifer and Michael’s Authentic Clam Bake Wedding | Saunderstown, Rhode Island

We are so happy to share Jennifer and Michael’s laid-back and intimate wedding on the blog! With just family and close friends invited, it was a small wedding but not lacking in anything, especially love for the new bride and groom! Jennifer and Michael, along with their guests, gathered at Smith Ferry Church in Saunderstown, Rhode Island. It is such a cute and ideal chapel, perfect for their ceremony. It was made even more special with their daughter playing the role of flower girl. (And can you believe that Jennifer and Michael just welcomed another daughter into the family just a few months before the wedding? She looks amazing!)

After the ceremony, the couple and their guests ventured to a house they had rented to begin their reception- an authentic clam bake! It was a relaxing celebration, full of friend, family, good conversation, and children playing in the lawn all in front of the gorgeous backdrop of the ocean. After fresh lobster and clams, the night ended with a campfire and we may have had fun with some sparklers before the night was over! It really was a perfect summer day.

Jennifer and Michael, we wish you all the love in the world and hope you are thrilled with your images. We are so honored to have been your wedding photographer and we can’t wait to see all that life has in store for your family!

Melissa and Joshua are Married! | The Towers | Narragansett, Rhode Island

Melissa and Joshua are Married! | The Towers | Narragansett, Rhode Island

Melissa and Josh were married this summer on June 20th at The Towers in Narragansett, Rhode Island. Drawing on inspiration from the ocean, they used bright pops of colors to create a really beautiful wedding all their own. It was a day filled with many personal touches, from the cute signs the ring bearers carried to the amazing cupcakes that helped satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth. (The Cinnamon Toast Crunch cupcake was calling to us!) It was a perfect day, made all the more special with it being the longest day of the year AND a full moon! We made sure to capture some gorgeous images of Melissa and Josh under the night sky. It was definitely a wedding we won’t soon forget.

Thank you Melissa and Josh for choosing us to tell your story. We wish you all the love in the world!
