About OuR Podcast

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'm Sara...

Hello!

Join me while I guide you through your planning. starting from your engagement, to your big day where you say, “I Do!”

give me all the deets

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'm also...

um, yes more

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’ve always loved photography, and ...

more, more!

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. 

I headed to...

tell me more

 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.

The most important ...

keep going

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.

I believe...

i'm gonna need to re-read that!
