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 this Windsor Farms Spring family session on Windsor Way. This was actually a first for me because the Gallalee wanted an outdoor newborn session. I typically do in home newborn sessions but I was excited to change it up a bit. It could not have gone any better!! Baby […]

Historic Tuckahoe is one of my favorite […]

Mechanicsville Newborn The Bissoon family is the absolute sweetest and come to find out, they only live a mile from me! Baby Benjamin was born six weeks ago. I typically do newborn sessions within 2-4 weeks of babies being born but this ended up working out PERFECTLY! Benjamin was so alert for photos- he’s already […]

Summer Jefferson Hotel Wedding Rachel and Mike’s summer Jefferson Hotel wedding was INCREDIBLE!  The venue itself is already so classic and beautiful, it was the best backdrop for such a special union.  Rachel and Mike live in the DC area.  I recently photographed their Georgetown engagement photos with their pup, Butter.  Unfortunately, Butter couldn’t make […]
