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.
How to make the best of a long weekend in Sedona, Arizona.
Cody and Katie waited for this day for a long time. They tied the knot on a beautiful Spring day in Richmond.
Brittany and Everette traveled down from DC to experience the beautiful scenery at Libby Hill Park and on Monument Avenue.
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. […]
Finally I get a voice on this thing! My name is River or if you’re my mom it’s Rivy Tivy and if you’re my dad it’s RivMan but I prefer River. My parents have talked about how bad of a year 2020 was but I think it was the best year ever!!! Apparently, they used […]
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.

I had my website under construction last Fall so I couldn’t share some of my favorite weddings ever! Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing my 2020 Fall weddings here on the blog. Patrick and Becky are up first and they are AMAZING. These two were supposed to get married in May of 2020 […]
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 […]
I feel like I start every engagement session blog post saying this but I really can’t wait for this wedding!! Michele and I have worked together at Atlee for the past 3 years and don’t let a good happy hour, concert, or festival pass us by. Tim is a firefighter in Northern, Virginia and joins […]
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 […]
This is going to be a loooong post but one that I am SO excited about!! Believe it or not, this trip came to be on December 26th, 2020. Craig and I were feeling the Christmas blues and he kept asking me what I wanted to do for my 30th birthday coming up. I told […]
