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

Vienna, Virginia. Engagement Session.

Lindsey and David are such a dream! Seriously, it’s as if they walked straight out of a Hallmark Movie! Y’all know how much I love Hallmark Movies. So watch out- your love story just might be considered, in my book, the next best movie 😉 I met Lindsey and David at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in […]

Shenandoah University. Virginia Wedding.

Carolyn and Dylan are married! I could not be happier for this Shenandoah University alumni couple! Since they are alumni, they were able to use the campus for their special day. How nice is that! Shenandoah University is a beautiful campus. It was so special for them to say “I Do” at the very place […]

Anniversary. Virginia. Rebecca Dotson Photography.

Ashley and Jason celebrated their 5 year anniversary and thought it would be special to have a photo session for just the two of them. This session was a little extra special since I have known Ashley since we were in 4th grade together! Throughout school, Ashley and I were inseparable. We did almost everything […]

Bowling Green Country Club. Winchester Floral. Bridal Party.

Chelsea and Boyd’s wedding day finally arrived! It felt like forever had gone by since I met them at James Madison University for their engagement session. Maybe it felt that way because I was so excited to celebrate with them! This was my first time at Bowling Green Country Club and oh my! Is it […]

Their day was finally here! These two planned and put so much work into every part of their wedding day and now the day had finally come to say “I Do”. If you’ve read Courtney and Robert’s engagement session blog post – and if you haven’t, check it out – then you know the story […]

Oh, sweet, young love – isn’t it the best? It takes you right back to that time when you first met the love of your life. Those first few conversations. That first date together. The first time you looked into each others eyes and simply knew that you were meant to be together. That first […]

Emily and Kris are married!! These two had to be one of the sweetest couples that I have ever met – seriously. The love between these two was just so heart warming. Their wedding day was nothing short of precious and so special. Emily and Kris got married at a private residence in Paris, Virginia. […]

Willow Trees. Virginia Wedding. Rebecca Dotson Photography.

Talk about the perfect summer day for a barn wedding! A little humid, but not terribly bad. With barely a cloud in sight, Meraiah and Justin had the perfect sunny wedding day. Cloverdale Barn is surrounded by the most beautiful rolling hills graced with the prettiest Willow Trees. As soon as I saw the way […]

Rebecca Dotson Photography. Virginia engagement.

From the first conversation with Emily, I simply could not wait to work with her and Will. She was such a sweetheart and I could not wait to get to know them! Upon arriving at Sky Meadows State Park, I knew it was going to be the perfect evening. The sun was glowing bright and […]

Winchester, Virginia engagement. Shenandoah University.

I had the joy of meeting Carolyn and Dylan not once, but twice for their engagement session. The first time around sadly got rained out; therefore, we were unable to capture any photos. Typically, I would move forward despite the rain and use clear umbrellas, but with the high winds, thunder, and lighting we opted […]
