Hi there, I’m Ashley Edmunds and I photograph weddings all over the world but my heart is in Virginia.
I grew up in Richmond, lived in the heart of Shenandoah for 7 years, and then found my way back to Richmond. Once you get to know me, you’ll see I’m a little Richmond obsessed. I can help you find the best restaurant, park, or brewery for any part of this wonderful city. I love photographing weddings here at home, in Charlottesville, Harrisonburg, DC, and beyond! When I’m not photographing weddings I’m most likely chasing River, my yellow lab trying to get a shoe out of his mouth, teaching my high school kiddos, or traveling with my amazing fiance Craig.

    So sorry I was out of town and didn’t get to visit with your family. My husband and I went to school with them. Your grandmother was my doctor growing up. What a sweet lady?

    These pictures are beautiful memories of the beautiful home on way up on McCormick, Dr. Julia Edmunds ( My children’s dr), what a beautiful home. I wd love to know who the faces are. Some familiar but I’ve been gone for a long time. Thanks for the walk diwn memory lane. I remember once ” trying ” to ice skate in back of that house when I was a girl. I was better on wheels. I grew up on Commercial. We absolutely LOVED Dr. Julia Edmunds. She was the best! What a tragic loss. My parents were fond of Dr. Emmett too. Thank you. Just awesome.

    Ashley – you did a beautiful job with the photography, but you had super material to work with. I am so sorry you did not have an opportunity to know your grandmother, Julia Emmett Edmunds. She was a grand lady in so many ways. You have a remarkable father, as well. I remember John as a tiny child, maybe 2-3 years old when he would come to the hospital with Annabell to bring Dr. Emmett’s lunch. I work for your great grandfather for the last five years of his life. John was so shy, he would try to hide behind Annabell’s legs and would peep out of the side. John is a great, great guy. Good to meet you, too, as well as your mother, this weekend.

    Hi, I was searching for John Edmunds, who was my friend from Virginia Tech. We had visited his house in Clifton Forge and stayed for the weekend in this beautiful house. Met his parents. So sad to hear his dad pass away, may he rest in peace. Pls share my mail address with him, I would love to reconnect

    Sorry I am just finding these fabulous photos. Better late than never! From kindergarten through college, Becky and I were side by side. Luckily, we remain in close touch to this day. The Emmett and Edmunds family have been a cornerstone of the CF community. The legacy that they have left will be felt for generations to come. Hail to this family now and always.
