Welcome to the k. thompson photography blog! I’m Kelsey Thompson, a documentary-style wedding photographer in the Washington, DC metro area. I work and reside in Alexandria, Virginia with my two cute and crazy dogs and my husband (also cute and crazy).

This photography blog will be the best place for you to view images from my recent weddings and portrait sessions. It’s also where I’ll announce new products and share my thoughts about weddings, photography, and the amazing couples that I feel so lucky to work with year-round!

So please check back often and leave a comment when you read (I love comments!). And, as always, please feel free to shoot me an email with any thoughts, comments or questions you might have. Enjoy!


Enjoying a wider view

I recently purchased a great wide-angle lens for my camera. I am having a blast with this lens. Wide-angle lenses may be known for their amazing ability to capture sweeping landscape shots, but their uses extend far beyond a stunning landscape. I have the most fun with the ability of this lens to disort part of an image...hence the giant sunflower and enlarged head on my pup. I am really looking forward to when the weather gets better and I can get out in nature with this lens!


This could be the start of something good...

Welcome to my new photography blog! I have never been one to blog (a blogger?), but I have always thought that the form and structure of a blog truly fits the photographer's craft...so here I am. As I create images for my fantastic clients, friends, and many just for the fun of it, I will be sharing them here. Please check back for updates. I hope that you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them! ~kvt
