i'm Kelsey Marie.

A wedding, senior portrait, and lifestyle photographer serving northern Virginia, D.C., and well, wherever you are! 


With a passion for big smiles and belly laughs, I'll be with you to capture the moments that mean the most to you. It's more than just a simple photograph on your phone, but moments to look back on and relive through every smile, every tear, and yes, even the hair flips I'll ask you to do. Grab a seat, look around, and stay awhile. I can't wait to chat with you soon, friend!

"Kelsey is a professional and friendly photographer who creates beautiful photos you will want to show off to everyone! We took our engagement and wedding photos with her, and we couldn’t be happier. She helped us with posing, scheduling, being comfortable, and kept us relaxed with constant communication. Our final photos were amazing, and just what we wanted. Kelsey is creative with creating beautiful and artistic photos. We highly recommend her for engagements and weddings!"


"Kelsey is the ultimate professional and such a joy to work with.I worked with Kelsey for a surprise proposal and she captured the most amazing live & in the moment photos that my fiancé and I will cherish forever. We then did a photo shoot afterwards and we couldn’t be more thrilled with how the photos came out. Kelsey’s turnaround time was incredible and she provided a link for easy access to the entire gallery. Overall a 5 out of 5 stars!


"I had the most amazing experience with Kelsey Marie Photography! Kelsey photographed our engagement and wedding photos and they all turned out beautifully! She had so much information for us to make our photoshoot sessions effortless and professional. She knew exactly where to go and even guided us on how to pose. You can tell she’s a pro when it comes to couples photos. I definitely recommend Kelsey because aside from her excellent quality work, she’s an awesome listener and gets your edited photos to you fast!"
