welcome

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. 

I am so excited to share with you Rachel and Vince’s beautiful March wedding!  Something was in the air when I arrived at Seven Springs Farm on March 27th.  It was a beautiful day and everyone was genuinely so excited to be together.  It’s been so long since we could gather and now with vaccines […]

I am SO excited to share about Powell and Cheryl’s River Farm wedding last Fall.  Powell and Cheryl had to cut their guest list to immediate family only because of pandemic restrictions but you would have never known it being at their wedding.  The day was filled with so much joy and so much celebration.  […]

This post was not easy to write!  What a strange time we live in, right?!  As a professional wedding vendor and bride-to-be during COVID, I thought I’d share some tips to decide what to do if it looks like your wedding date is going to be affected by the pandemic. So first things first, you […]

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 […]
