hi there! I'm Ashley Edmunds
I'm a wedding photographer
in the Richmond area and beyond..

my passion
is connecting with people

I am a lover of real authentic relationships, a dog mom, and a soon to be wife.

I have a love for capturing emotion in a photograph, and I believe my job is more than just showing up on your wedding day. Working with me is a personal experience. I want to get to know you and your fiance before we ever take any photographs. Believe it or not, you spend the most time with your photographer out of anyone else on your wedding day! I will help you and your family feel at ease throughout your whole day. I have a very intimate client photographer relationship and become good friends with all of my clients. My favorite things to photograph at your wedding are what I like to call the little in between moments. Sure you will have amazing pictures of your first kiss and sparkler exit but you will also look back through your photos and see your maid of honor shedding a tear during the ceremony, your mom beaming with joy during your daddy daughter dance, friends and family interacting that you never even dreamed would meet each other, and the tight grip you had on each other’s hands during the toasts. I can’t wait to get to know you!

it's about the
experience too!

i offer more than just images,
i want to capture real emotion

When you book me to photograph your wedding, you should know I do a little happy dance in my office and then immediately start planning how amazing your day is going to be. I only photograph 10-15 weddings a year so you are guaranteed to get a very personal experience. I have photographed over 50 weddings and can answer ALL of your timeline, vendor, experience questions. I love guiding you to not only have the best photography experience, but also the most amazing day!

one of the best decisions my husband and i ever made

Hiring Ashley to photograph our wedding was one of the best decisions my husband and I ever made. We started off with an engagement photoshoot and from that day on, I was in love! Ashley listened to exactly what I was looking for. From scoping out locations to finding me the perfect glowy light of my dreams, she was so fun and easy to work with. Ashley has photographed my husband and I a total of 4 times now including our most recent shoot to announce our first child! We will continue coming back to Ashley because she is so kind and delivers galleries full of beautiful memories. I cherish each and every photograph she’s ever taken for our family.

thank you Ashley for perfectly capturing our wedding

She recently photographed our wedding, and she did a PHENOMENAL job. Not only does she have a professional eye for the beautiful moments between the bride and groom and the typical detail shots – she also captures fantastic candid shots and moments with ALL of the guests so that you end up with a fantastic range of pictures that really capture the entire event.
Ashley is friendly and so much fun! My friends and I had a blast with her while getting ready, and even my husband had a great time, loved the poses, and has continually said how easy she was to work with. Thank you, thank you, thank you Ashley for perfectly capturing our wedding, family, friends, and crazy personalities. You absolutely nailed it, and I hope we can work with you again sometime in the future!
