    Absolute Magic

    Sara was easy to work with and made so much of the time we had with her. Without her attention to detail, I would have never seen half of the moments she captured! Our photos are more than we could have ever asked for. If you’re looking for perfection and magic, look no further than Sara Zarrella ❤️

    Best photographers!

    We are so grateful we chose Sara and her team for our big day. Right from the start, Sara was responsive, helpful, friendly, and made us feel so at ease. Our engagement pictures were stunning. Sara and her team, specifically Dan and Faith, were professional, fun, flexible, and made us feel comfortable on our wedding day. We saw some of the thumbnails of the pictures from our wedding day and they are GORGEOUS. Sara and her team also seamlessly got all the pictures we requested and were extremely efficient with picture taking so that we did not have to miss much of our cocktail party. Lastly, the photobooth pictures are amazing and it was such a hit at our wedding! We would choose the SZP team all over again if we could!! You should not look any further for a wedding photographer.

    Sara Zarrella Photography's reply:

    Sarah! It truly was an honor to be part of your day! You are a very special person and your wedding was worth the wait! Thank you for allowing us to preserve your memories! xoxo

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR AN EXPERIENCED
PHOTOGRAPHER WHO FEELS MORE LIKE A TRUSTED FRIEND?

I'm your girl! I am Sara! Nice to meet you! The owner and lead Photo-Novelist for Sara Zarrella Photography. I’m a pint-size, (frequently caffeinated) fireball of energy that loves my family, my clients, and the stories I am lucky enough to tell through my photos. I am also a native Rhode Islander and lover of all things coastal. But most importantly, I’m a wife to one good-looking husband (just my opinion), and a mom to three little ones: two little ladies who are too-sassy-for-their-own-good, and the sweetest little baby boy ever.

I’ve always loved photography, and I knew that this was what I was meant to be doing. I pursued an Art degree from Northeastern University in order to start my photography journey and studied abroad in Florence, Italy, at the Studio Art Center International. While in Italy, I honed my photography skills among the centuries old architecture and endless gelato shops. After graduation, I continued my education by attending both Rhode Island School of Design and The New England School of Photography. I headed to the Big Apple where I worked at InStyle magazine as a photo editor. I was immersed in the glamorous world of fashion, music, and entertainment, but after awhile, I longed for home, and I returned to my roots in the smallest state, “Little Rhody”--which is pretty fitting, considering I am under 5ft tall.

The most important experiences of all have been the connections I have made with the hundreds of #SZPDreamCouple(s) and our #SZPDreamFamily that I’ve been lucky enough to work with over the past 18+ years.

For me, being able to witness their journeys from beautiful wedding days to the joy of pregnancy, and from those fleeting newborn moments to watching their family grow throughout the years, is the most satisfying part of what I do.

I believe In using photographs to tell your story to your children and grandchildren, for generations to come.

In living your best life, existing in photographs, and enjoying every moment.

In your dreams, and if you work hard enough you can accomplish anything.

HELLO I AM DAN, LEAD PHOTO-NOVELIST
FOR SARA ZARRELLA PHOTOGRAPHY.

A valued member of the SZP team for over 10 years. Bonus - I am a loyal Millennial! You’ll often find me with my camera by my side just in case I see something that sparks my imagination. For me, what's most inspiring is the candid, joy-filled moments between loved ones.

I believe that images are memories in the form of photographs, and I am honored to have the opportunity to create memories that you will cherish for a lifetime.

Photography is more than just a career--it’s a form of artistic expression. My love for photographing people began when I discovered Street Photography (which is exactly what it sounds like--photographing candid moments on a busy street) using a 35mm black and white film camera. I was so inspired by the stories being captured in those photographs.

I earned a degree in Photography and began pursuing a freelance photography career which is where I met Sara. I immediately fell in love with her work and her desire to tell stories through photography. We quickly formed a friendship which became the basis for our working relationship and--as they say--the rest is history!
