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

Snow in November?!  Not something that we see very often around here, but it happened this year and it just so happened to be on Bobbie and Eric’s wedding weekend! These two were married in a beautiful Catholic church surrounded by their closest family and friends.  Even though there was snow on the ground, there […]

From the moment I met Francesca and Marshall at our consultation, I knew their wedding day was going to be one for the books.  They were the absolute sweetest and their love for each other lit up the whole room! This was my first time at Rust Manor House and let’s just say it was […]

I’m not sure what was more beautiful this day – this super sweet, newly engaged couple or the breathtaking scenery at Blue Valley Vineyard and Winery.  I think its safe to say both were equally amazing.  Although, I definitely enjoyed the company of Taylor and Noland and Taylor’s awesome mom who was not only there […]

I first met Morgan and Bryan at their consultation in March.  It seemed like their wedding day was so far away, but it was here before we knew it! Morgan and Bryan were married at a beautiful country club in Gainesville, Virginia.  What seemed like the absolute coldest day in November, turned out to be […]

How sweet is it to gift your wife a photo session for your anniversary even when you really don’t want photos taken yourself?!  That’s exactly what this husband did – maybe with a little bribing from his wife or maybe not 😉 . Regardless, he was a trooper! These two left the kiddos at home […]

Vacation was much needed this year, and the beach always calls our name! We enjoy going to new places and different beaches each time we go, so this year we decided to check out Corolla, NC. It was a different vacation as we now have our sweet baby girl – who is 15 months old […]

Veronica and David had the most BEAUTIFUL wedding day!  The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for an outdoor ceremony. Watching Veronica and David beam with happiness melted my heart.  Their vows were so sweet and so heartfelt!  It was adorable to watch Veronica’s daughter walk down the aisle and run to David, then later […]

Edi dreamed of having a country, barn wedding with the farm animals around.  It was a dream come true at Cloverdale Barn! Edi and Paul’s wedding day was the perfect country setting.  What was supposed to be a day of pouring down rain, turned out to only be overcast and it was amazing!  They opted […]

I was too excited when Ashley contacted me about scheduling her and Dennis’ engagement session.  I was especially excited when she told me the location they wanted to go to!  It was a place I had never been before, and I am always up for checking out new places. It was the perfect little spot […]

 This wedding season I was able to photograph and witness the most beautiful weddings at some of Loudoun County’s most beautiful wedding venues.  I visited 48 Fields prior to Megan and Leighton’s wedding day and my jaw dropped.  How adorable and beautiful is this barn?!  It was perfectttt!! It was so much fun to capture […]
