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 funny story- I thought we were doing anniversary photos of Sarah and Cameron at their house. So when I pulled up to the address they gave me, I was SHOCKED. This has been a staple house in Mechanicsville ever since I was little. It’s a gorgeous white house surrounded by fields and a white […]

I am […]

After photographing close to 100 engagement sessions, it’s time to share my very own!!! Before I share some photos, I want to share about our wedding photographer!!

I am SO excited to share this special engagement session in DC with Cheryl and Powell.  We had to cancel due to COVID a few times so I could hardly wait when we got the go in early July.  Most of the time, I go to locations and scout them out before an engagement session.  […]
