Kayleigh and Jake shared the most beautiful and perfect fall wedding day at the lovely Breaux Vineyards in Purcellville, Virginia. Even with a slight chill in the air, the sun was shining bright and the fall foliage was all around. With it being such a clear day, the view of the mountains stretched for miles! […]

Kernstown Battlefield. Golden Hour. Sunset. Engagement. Willow Tree. Rebecca Dotson Photography.

My animal-loving heart was so excited when Sara told me they wanted to include their pets in their engagement photos. Animals are always a major yes from me! I met Sara and Bo at their home for the first portion of their session. It was the perfect fall day with the sun shining and beautiful […]

I was so excited to meet Kim and Matthew at one of my favorite locations – the State Arboretum of Virginia. You can definitely never go wrong with this location.

As soon as I drove up to Emily and Will’s wedding venue, I saw the small lake and fountain in the middle. I instantly knew it was going to be the sweetest day! It was an overcast day, but that did not matter one bit. Emily’s beaming smile and laugh could light up any cloudy […]

They are one of the most light hearted and fun-loving couples I have ever met. Brandy and Jason enjoy fishing together so it was important to them […]

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 […]

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.
