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!


Aadila & Nauman - Engagement Party

When Aadila called me looking for coverage for her engagement party, I was immediately excited to share in the special day that her family had planned for her and her fiance. There was definitely no shortage of joy and love in the room to capture during this festive luncheon. This was a couple that truly made my job easy. Thank you both!


Jackie - modern business headshots

Jackie is a very talented local event planner who was looking to update her website and marketing materials with some modern headshots. We did the session on location outdoors and played with a few different outfits to match her vision and energy. You can check out her website here, where some of her new headshots should appear soon.
