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!


Washingtonian Bride & Groom Cover | DC wedding photography

We were so excited to see one of our images from Jessica & Michael's gorgeous wedding at the Omni Shoreham last fall on the cover of the most recent issue of Washingtonian Bride & Groom.

Congrats Jessica & Michael!


More Summer Sneak Peeks!

I'm so excited with the sneak peek images I have to share with you from the last few weeks!  One of my favorite things is how different each of these weddings has been.  I love the variety and how each of these couples made their events so completely them.

Tanya & TJ's chic wedding at Holy Trinity in Georgetown and the Torpedo Factory in Old Town Alexandria.

Tasha & Matt's glam (and yes, rainy) day at the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore.

Liz & Andy's fun and colorful hurricane wedding at Holy Trinity and the Westin in Georgetown.

And, most recently, Isabel & Andrew's beautiful celebration at Manor Country Club with portraits at Woodlawn Manor (love that place!).
