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!


Fall Sneak Peeks | DC, Virginia and Maryland Wedding Photography

Fall is such an amazing and busy time for weddings and sessions in the DC area.  I'm simply beyond excited with the sneak peeks I have to share with you from this time of year!  I'm not even going to waste words because I know the images will do a much better job...

First, check out these fantastic Fall colors for Nia & Max's gorgeous ceremony at the Inn at Little Washington.

Michelle & Chris' fun engagement session on the campus of UVA.

Caroline & BJ's beautiful outdoor wedding at River Farm.

Tara & Matt's colorful engagement session in Old Town.

Jenny & Kirk's seaside celebration at Herrington on the Bay.

 And lastly, Lisa & Brian's chilly but oh-so-cozy engagement session at River Farm.


Sneak Peeks!

If there's one thing I love, it's photographing gorgeous weddings in a wide variety of locations.  From beaches and farms to museums and ballrooms to vineyards and stadiums, it never ceases to amaze and delight me at the different venues in which each of my couples selects to celebrate their day.  As I sit here realizing just how quickly the year is flying by, I want to say a huge thank you to all of my wonderful clients!  And of course, here are some recent weddings to check out:

Jennifer & Shea's beautiful celebration at River Plantation complete with the best sunset I've seen in years!

Brittany & Jeremy's stunningly elegant DC wedding at the Corcoran Gallery of Art.
