welcome
to my blog

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. 

Jaime and Bryant were another one of my special pandemic couples!! They got married on October 17th, 2020 at The Granary at Valley Pike on a beautiful day. They cut down their guest list significantly and took precautions to keep guests safe but at the end of the day, they got married!! Bryant and Jaime […]

When Craig and I started planning our Sedona trip right after Christmas I knew I wanted to take portraits of someone in the beautiful red rocks. I was trying to figure out how to find a couple that would let me photograph them and then I had an idea. What if I found another photographer […]

2020 Bride and Groom Superlatives

This was my second wedding I’ve ever photographed at the bride and groom’s home. There is something SO special about getting married at your own home. You will be able to revisit the exact spot you got married everyday. Honestly, I’m a tad jealous! This wedding did not happen without heartache and tribulation though. Mills […]
