welcome
to my blog

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. 

Lianne and Ryan had the absolute perfect weather for their April wedding day. I was extra excited for this wedding because I photographed Lianne’s brother’s wedding last year and their family is SO MUCH FUN! We started the day at the Hilton downtown which was such a classy place to get ready. The rest of […]

I’m so excited to share Chris and Lauren’s wedding from last weekend at the beautiful Loft at Steamer Co 5 downtown Richmond! This intimate venue is one block off of Broad Street downtown and is the perfect spot if you have 75 or less guests. Lauren and Chris opted for an intimate wedding and reception […]

This post is just a little bit late but I wanted it to have a home here on the blog so I could look back on it and for anyone else planning on traveling to the Cape Cod area!  On my wedding day I wanted to gift my mom something nice since she helped me […]

I’m so excited to introduce you to Richmond’s newest engaged couple! Proposals are such a fun thing to photograph because there is so much emotion involved!! There’s also something fun about being sneaky and catching the moment.  Will reached out to me about a month ago and told me his plan. Him and Brooke recently […]

My FAVORITE blog post of the entire year!!! I get to brag on all of my 2021 couples and let me say- this year will be hard to beat.  These 12 couples all went through planning a wedding (and some planning essentially two weddings) during a global pandemic which is NOT an easy task.  They […]

What an incredible engagement session!! When we scheduled these photos a long time ago, we had no way of knowing that the weather would be the perfect temperature or that they Fall leaves would be at their peak, we just got lucky!! Liv and Jackson were SO much fun and honestly so natural.  They laughed […]

This blog post is really full circle and so special to me.  Lindsey and I met in second grade at Cool Spring Elementary School and basically lived at each other’s houses throughout middle and high school.  Our favorite past time was biking through our neighborhoods that connected to go get McDonald’s and check out a […]
