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!

Voted to Washingtonian Bride & Groom's List of Top Wedding Professionals

We are so thrilled to announce that we were named to the Washingtonian Bride & Groom's Best Wedding Vendor List.  And to top off this exciting news, we were also designated as "One to Watch."  We couldn't be more honored to be among this list of superb vendors.  And congrats to all of our friends and colleagues who were also named to the list, some for the first time and others for many years in a row!  We are so thankful for their dedication and the amazing work that they do for our couples. 


Gorgeous Navy Blue Silk Fine-Art Books

I shipped these beauties off to their new home last week and couldn't wait to share a few images with you.  Jackie & Don selected a midnight navy silk cover and fine-art matte pages for their modern and striking 10x10 wedding album and 8x8 duplicate parent book.  This was my first time seeing the navy silk on a book and it just blew me away!  It was the perfect compliment to their navy and rust colored wedding.

 Love the natural texture of the silk!

Jackie & Don went with a simple and clean design to emphasize their images. I was so excited to send it off that I forgot to photograph any other pages, but you really have to feel the fine-art matte paper to appreciate it's beauty, so here's just one as a teaser. :)
