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. 

Hey guys!  I am hoping to do more blog posts in the next few weeks since I’ll have more time!! Recently I’ve been busy with school stuff, front porch sessions, and A NEW PUPPY!!!  River joined our family exactly one week ago but we had been talking/thinking about him for awhile.  Craig will tell you, […]


Meet River!!!

I hope everyone is doing okay cooped up at home.  Luckily, I have had these amazing pictures to work on and edit the past week.  Matt and Mackenzie are such a fun couple!!! These two met at JMU, got engaged at JMU, and Mackenzie is a teacher, so I knew it was meant to be […]

Hii friends, I hope everyone had a great weekend!! I wanted to write a little bit about some house updates I’ve done lately because a lot of people had questions on facebook and instagram.  I’ve lived in my house now for a couple weeks short of 3 years, crazy!! I decided to use some Christmas […]


House Updates

This is a special post for me because I have worked with Erica for four years now!  Erica is an amazing Spanish teacher at Atlee.  I was so happy for her when she met Matt.  Erica and Matt are getting married next November in Richmond and their reception will be at The Boathouse at Rockett’s […]

It’s time again for my favorite post of the whole year- Bride and Groom Superlatives 2019!!!  This is my fourth full year photographing weddings and I’d love for you to go back and check out 2016, 2017, and 2018 superlatives.  This year was by far my best year in business.  I had an absolute blast […]


Bride & Groom Superlatives 2019

January 2, 2020

I took the opportunity to take photos of some of my Christmas decorations the one time my house was clean- right before my Christmas party!   I haven’t shared much about my house on the blog because there’s so much I want to do with it, but why share when everything is perfect? I bought my […]


Christmas on Jeffrey

December 24, 2019

This past weekend was my last busy weekend until my January 11th wedding weekend!! Also, I can’t believe I’m posting this because I still have Christmas wrapping and a tad bit of shopping to do, anyone else?!? This past weekend started off with a little bit of a rough start.  I ate something funny on […]


Weekend Wrap-Up #11: Christmas Break

December 23, 2019

Get ready for some raw, real pictures with this wedding!  I usually shed a tear or two behind the camera while photographing a wedding, but this wedding I was full on balling my eyes out.  I am so excited to share these images with you!  Krystina and Beth got married at the beautiful Altria Theater […]

With Thanksgiving today, I thought I’d take a second to appreciate the things that come with being a wedding photographer.  This job and business was not something I ever dreamed I would be doing.  I didn’t start taking photography classes until I was out of college.  Ever since I got into the wedding industry, I […]
