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.
Craig proposed to me by the river last May and now we get to plan our own wedding!
Cody and Katie waited for this day for a long time. They tied the knot on a beautiful Spring day in Richmond.
Brittany and Everette traveled down from DC to experience the beautiful scenery at Libby Hill Park and on Monument Avenue.
So funny story- I thought we were doing anniversary photos of Sarah and Cameron at their house. So when I pulled up to the address they gave me, I was SHOCKED. This has been a staple house in Mechanicsville ever since I was little. It’s a gorgeous white house surrounded by fields and a white […]
I have SO many sessions to post to catch you guys up on my busy Fall but I’m going to post my most recent session first! This past weekend, I met Becca and Joseph in downtown Ashland for their engagement session!! We had so much fun walking around the train stain and Randolph Macon campus. […]
I am SO excited to share this special engagement session in DC with Cheryl and Powell. We had to cancel due to COVID a few times so I could hardly wait when we got the go in early July. Most of the time, I go to locations and scout them out before an engagement session. […]
I FINALLY GOT TO TAKE PICTURES OF ONE OF MY COUPLES!!!!! Ya’ll winter is slow season for wedding photographers so in March when things get started back up, I get SO excited. Unfortunately, this March was a different story with the virus! When Kara texted me that she reserved time at Tuckahoe Plantation for her […]
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 […]
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 […]
With Thanksgiving tomorrow I thought this would be a special shoot to share. About two months ago, Craig’s best friend George reached out to me and told me about the biggest secret I’ve kept to date- that he was planning on proposing to his amazing girlfriend Rachel. One of the best parts of dating someone […]
I absolutely love getting to photograph sessions somewhere meaningful for the couple. Last Sunday, I went to Midland, Virginia to photograph Bryant and Jaime at Jaime’s grandmother’s house. She lives on a BEAUTIFUL property with an old farm house, barn, and amazing light! Half way through the session, I learned that Jaime grew up practically […]
One thing I always ask right before an engagement session is if they have ever gotten professional portraits done. After you see these photos, you’ll see how surprised I was when Lora and Ethan said no. They could seriously be models!!! Fun fact about these two- they actually beat the statistics and met at a […]
This was such a special shoot for me!! Allyson is one of my friends and her husband deploys for the air force TODAY!! I respect these two so much. It just so happened that two days before he deployed was their one year wedding anniversary. I was so honored to spend time with these two […]
