Hello, my name is Kelsey Thompson, and I am a fine-art Wedding Photographer.

My portfolio is filled with enduring, elegant, and memorable photographs, because my deepest hope is that your children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren will experience the same love and joy from your photographs as you experienced on your wedding day.

A perfect combination of fresh style and classic elegance is timeless; it will never leave your memory or your heart.

I also believe in shooting the in-between moments - the moment he gently tucked a piece of hair behind your ear, the laugh you shared with your dad before journeying down the aisle, the glance your mom gave you as you applied the finishing touches to your look. It is in these moments when genuine memories are made and authentic moments are preserved.

Personally, I find simple joy in being married to my handsome fella and filling my days with our pups, a tall glass of sparkling rose, reconnecting with old friends and celebrating life's milestones. If everyday could feel like Paris in Autumn, I would not complain. Being thirty-something is wonderful, and let’s face it, so is cappuccino ice cream. Surprisingly enough, I graduated from Law School and have a background in the Sciences. Having varied interests has never been an issue for me; in fact, it has only helped me to find beauty in the everyday through my photography.

While I primarily shoot in the Washington DC area, I believe a Passport can never be too full, and I love traveling with my clients! My work has appeared in Style Me Pretty, The Knot Magazine, Washingtonian Bride & Groom, Destination I Do, and other publications in print and online. I'm also honored to be included in Washingtonian and Virginia Living's Lists of Best Wedding Vendors.

At the end of the day, though, I do all of this because I believe your wedding photography should be just as enduring as your love story.
