Hi there! Welcome to the blog, a journal about my couples, my business, and some occasional fun personal things. Stay a while and say hello!

I'm Rebecca dotson

Where do I even begin with Courtney and Robert?  I first met them at their consultation back in January of this year.  The moment I met them I thought they were absolutely precious!  Which they are, as you can see!   The Engagement Session To say I was excited that Courtney chose Stone Tower Winery […]

After corresponding via e-mail for several weeks, I was so excited to finally meet Chelsea and Boyd for their engagement session!  Once Chelsea told me where they wanted to have their engagement session take place, I knew it was going to be special. Chelsea and Boyd chose to do their engagement session at James Madison […]

At the end of April I had the pleasure of meeting Tiffany and AJ, one of my sweet 2020 couples, for their engagement session.  We met at the beautiful Sky Meadows State Park on the most beautiful evening. With the light shining through those massive trees and barely anyone in sight, I instantly knew it […]

I just can’t get enough of this gorgeous, spring inspired styled shoot at Walker’s Overlook!  With a surprise snowfall the night before, it quickly turned into a “Dreaming of Spring” shoot, but it was still perfection. Every aspect of the shoot was thoughtfully put into place by the lovely Mimi Perez of A Bride’s BFF.  […]

Before you dive into this post, you may want to check out Part 1 and Part 2 first! Fast forward 6 short months after we got engaged, and it was October 28, 2012.  The day that I would say “I Do” to my very best friend.  We chose this date for a couple of reasons.  […]

The Love Story What better day to marry your best friend than on Valentine’s Day?!  When I first heard from Molly, I was so excited to hear of her and Brian’s plans to elope in Old Town Alexandria on Valentine’s Day.  I don’t think it gets much sweeter than that. It was as if Molly […]

Happy Valentine’s Day! I thought it would be fitting to share the second part of our love story on Valentine’s Day.  Even though none of this took place around Valentine’s Day, but hey, it’s a cute day for celebrating love! After that first weekend in February, the days just kept getting better, the phone conversations […]

When I first spoke with Heather during our initial phone conversation, I knew that her and Ben were going to be a dream to work with!  I’m pretty sure we could have talked for hours just about all of the wedding plans.  She had me so excited that I was ready to tell my husband […]

There is nothing like hearing a good love story.  It is truly one of my favorite parts of getting to know other couples – hearing the whole story – from start to finish, of how they met, fell in love, got engaged, and said “I Do”.  I will be the first to admit that I […]

Anybody else agree that this year has been entirely too cold so far?  Yeah, I thought so.  Well, these two braved the cold with me and joined me in Old Town Winchester for a super sweet session!  It was cloudy, cold, and I’m pretty sure a blizzard could have popped up any minute! I met […]
