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. 

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 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 […]

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 […]
