We are Grant & Sara Dotson. As a husband and wife team, we bring a unique perspective to photography, one influenced by life experiences as well as comprehensive art and design training. Our cameras are an extension of not only our eyes, but our minds and hearts, instantly capturing moments and emotions just as they occur. We enjoy getting to know our clients on a personal level and helping them feel that they're a part of a partnership. Every client is different, and our photographs seek to reflect each individual personality for truly unforgettable memories.

We have a new website!! Yesterday we launched our new portfolio website. It now includes much more information about our style, our process, and our personal backgrounds & experience. Plus, it now includes more photos in more galleries! It’s easier to read, navigate and is fully compatible with mobile devices…we are so excited about it!
So we are about to make a few changes in the Dotson Studios world that we are really excited about. I wanted to announce these changes as well as explain our reasoning for them.
Change #1 Facebook Page—Yes, we now have a Facebook “Fan” page. We’ve been working on it for a while now but have not finalized it because we wanted to do something unique with it. Since Facebook is everywhere now we felt that it was important to make it meaningful and our hope is that people will enjoy the page and come back often, not just take a look when they first decide to “Like” us. Now that we feel good about how we’ll use our Facebook page we are going public with it.
Change #2 Storyboards—What is a storyboard you ask? Well you’ll have to check our Facebook page and see! We will be taking select images from engagement shoots and weddings and putting them together on a board along with quotes from the couple. Once together we hope you get a sense for not only what the wedding looked like, but how it felt, and an overall sense of color and emotions. For engagement sessions these will focus on the story they share with us as well as a few favorite images. We are really excited about these and hope that our couples and readers will enjoy them as well.
Change #3 Blog Format—When we announced the winners from the Premier Bridal Show and the Formal Affair Show we used the opportunity to tell the story of the winner’s love…how they met, how they got engaged, and so forth. We enjoyed that so much that we have decided to use that type of format going forward. For engagement sessions we’ll tell the story of the couple, and for weddings we’ll have more about the wedding planning and wedding day to share. We love hearing and reading other love stories and it’s a privilege to be able to share so many of those stories with our readers. Every couple is different and every story of how they met and fell in love is different…and we get to share it all with all of you!
