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

I had the best time meeting Cady, Corey, and their sweet pups at the State Arboretum of Virginia for their engagement session. These two were seriously so much fun! I can’t wait for you to scroll down and see for yourself. Cady and Corey met at a fundraiser, but didn’t exchange numbers. So Corey made […]

I had the absolute best time meeting Hannah-Marie and Andrew for their engagement session at Bluemont Vineyard! They are one of the sweetest couples you will ever meet. One of my favorite parts about each engagement session is getting to know my couples. I loved hearing all about how Hannah-Marie and Andrew met, all about […]

Jessica and Rhett’s beautiful session at Great Marsh Estate was nothing short of amazing! These two were celebrating their 8th anniversary and what better way to do just that than to dress up and capture the moment? Jessica’s eyes lit up the moment she walked into the bridal suite at Great Marsh Estate. She arrived […]

Where do I even begin with Melinda and Grant’s beautiful wedding at The Barn at Willow Brook in Leesburg, Virginia! The entire day was filled with so much love, laughter, and happy tears.

Once again, as with most of my 2020 blog posts – “due to Covid-19”, Kim and Matthew had to reschedule their wedding day. In order to still celebrate their wedding day in some way, they decided to do a couples session on their original wedding date at Sky Meadows State Park. Everybody say it with […]

Staci and Dale shared a lovely September wedding day at Lake Frederick. While they were getting ready, it was pouring down rain. However, it cleared up just in time for them to exchange their vows outside with the lake behind them. Staci and Dale are one of many couples that had to reschedule their wedding […]

These adorable high school sweethearts said “I Do” at the lovely Fuller House Inn in Winchester, Virginia. Angelica and Ryan had a less than ideal day with the rain rolling in, but that did not stop them from celebrating their love! A little side note, did you know that rain on your wedding day means […]

After having to reschedule their wedding day due to COVID-19, Tiffany and AJ were finally able to celebrate at Arbor Haven in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Even though they had already officially become husband and wife on their original wedding date, a celebration was a must! Tiffany and AJ could not have asked for a more beautiful […]
