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

What a breath of fresh air to be able to get out and photograph a wedding again!  On June 6, 2020 I was able to capture Sara and Bo’s special day.  I hadn’t photographed a wedding since February (!!!) so to say I was excited would be an understatement.  Sara and Bo exchanged their vows […]

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

My first wedding of 2020 was a little extra special. Jackie is a friend of mine and I was so honored when she asked me to photograph her wedding! Think wedding photographers never get nervous after doing so many weddings? Think again. I was a nervous wreck. Yes, I typically always get nervous before a […]

Couture Bridal of Maryland.

I was thrilled to receive an email from Mimi, one of the owners of Couture Bridal of Maryland, about photographing their re-grand opening at their new location. Of course my answer was an immediate yes! I simply could not wait to celebrate with them and see their new location. When I arrived at their new […]

Breaux Vineyards. Rebecca Dotson Photography. Virginia Wedding.

Kayleigh and Jake shared the most beautiful and perfect fall wedding day at the lovely Breaux Vineyards in Purcellville, Virginia.

Virginia Wedding Photography. Rebecca Dotson.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
