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 Ellie and Gray’s Richmond engagement session with you today! When I saw the forecast was saying the high temperature was going to be in the 40’s, I texted Ellie thinking they would cancel. I’m SO glad they didn’t because we had the most beautiful light and it really wasn’t […]

It was an honor to photograph baby Mia, Chris, and Shivonne just a week after Mia was born! Shivonne reached out to me and sent me the sweetest email FROM THE HOSPITAL! From another momma that just gave birth, I was super impressed she was thinking about photos and that just shows how important it […]

When they told me they weren’t bringing a dog sitter I was a little nervous but their dogs were so well behaved and so much fun to have […]

I wasn’t sure if writing Annie’s birth story was something I’d do but now 3.5 weeks into this mom gig, I realize it’s a story that I may forget and want it to be captured somewhere forever. So writing this down is more for me but I decided to share because I always enjoyed reading […]

River is excited to give you a tour of his new room…oh I mean his little sister’s new room. He thinks every toy and blanket is for him and tried to pose in every photo I took. This should be interesting when we bring her home! We have three bedrooms in our house and two […]

I don’t typically share family sessions on the blog but lately I have been doing more newborn sessions and I thought it would be fun to share a few over the next coming weeks! Weddings are typically slow in July and August and I’m able to do family, newborn, and maternity sessions for a change […]

It absolutely lived up to the hype and beyond! Lindsey and Matt actually got married in December […]
