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!


Priscilla & Greg's gorgeous 16x12 fine-art book

So, I know I keep promising to post more finished albums to the blog, but I've obviously fallen short in this goal.  New year, new goal.  Maybe I'll be better this time.  I have so many beautiful books to share, only some of which I've actually managed to grab photos of before they are picked up at the studio.  Luckily, I did get some images of Priscilla & Greg's book before it went off to it's new home.  This baby is HUGE!  It's definitely one of the largest books we've ever done, spanning almost three feet wide when opened!  I couldn't be happier with how it turned out.

And some of my favorite spreads...




Sarah & Nick's blizzard wedding on Brides.com

I was so excited when the editor of Brides contacted me recently about featuring Sarah & Nick's winter wedding at St. Matthews and the Carnegie Institute.  What do you get when you throw 20" of snow into a very DC wedding?  One of the most memorable days of the year!  You can check out the full feature here: Sarah & Nick on Brides.com.

Their full blog post from last winter is here.  Looking back through their images kinda makes me wish for a *little* snow...
