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. 

Joseph and Becca’s beautiful wedding is one I’ll never forget. It was my first time at Oakdale and it made me so excited for 3 more weddings there in the next year because it’s an amazing venue. It is tucked away in Ashland, Va surrounded by a lake, amazing sunlight, and beautiful views! Joseph and […]
