Hey there!
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 has a way of making you feel beautiful and comfortable, all while capturing the best pictures. I've never been a super small girl and was nervous that I would hate the way I look in all of my senior pictures, but Kelsey knew exactly what to do, how to pose, how to have fun and laugh, and I ended up absolutely loving my senior portraits! She’s also really easy to talk to! I have such a fun time talking with her and she gives such great advice!"

All of my friends just love her!

"Kelsey is one of the most amazing people! Not only do her pictures come out amazing, but she makes the experience so comfortable. She’ll tell you how to pose, where to look, and of course hit you with the “look back and laugh.” She made my senior session so exciting and fun! Couldn't have made a better decision for someone to capture my senior year perfectly!"
