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. 

I am so excited to share this Windsor Farms Spring family session on Windsor Way. This was actually a first for me because the Gallalee wanted an outdoor newborn session. I typically do in home newborn sessions but I was excited to change it up a bit. It could not have gone any better!! Baby […]

Mechanicsville Newborn The Bissoon family is the absolute sweetest and come to find out, they only live a mile from me! Baby Benjamin was born six weeks ago. I typically do newborn sessions within 2-4 weeks of babies being born but this ended up working out PERFECTLY! Benjamin was so alert for photos- he’s already […]

When Craig and I moved to Puddle Duck Lane (yes, we are obsessed with the name) we had no idea that the sun set in our backyard like it does.  I actually loved the office space in the house and thought that maybe one day, I could offer indoor sessions for senior drape pictures but […]
