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. 

Seriously where has the time gone?! I can’t believe I have a three month old and I really can’t believe it’s already time to go back to teaching after 14 weeks at home. Cue the tears! I am SO lucky that my mom is going to watch Annie at her house until June. Craig and […]

Three months with Annie

January 16, 2023

It was an honor to photograph baby Mia, Chris, and Shivonne just a week after Mia was born! Shivonne reached out to me and sent me the sweetest email FROM THE HOSPITAL! From another momma that just gave birth, I was super impressed she was thinking about photos and that just shows how important it […]

I wasn’t sure if writing Annie’s birth story was something I’d do but now 3.5 weeks into this mom gig, I realize it’s a story that I may forget and want it to be captured somewhere forever. So writing this down is more for me but I decided to share because I always enjoyed reading […]

River is excited to give you a tour of his new room…oh I mean his little sister’s new room. He thinks every toy and blanket is for him and tried to pose in every photo I took. This should be interesting when we bring her home! We have three bedrooms in our house and two […]

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 […]

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 […]

5 Reasons to Take Bridal Portraits

I have dreamed of going to Denver for probably the past 10 years!!! Everyone told me that once I went out there I wouldn’t want to come home and they were right. This trip happened a few weekends ago for my best friend’s 30th birthday! It was so much fun to spend more time with […]

Finally I get a voice on this thing! My name is River or if you’re my mom it’s Rivy Tivy and if you’re my dad it’s RivMan but I prefer River. My parents have talked about how bad of a year 2020 was but I think it was the best year ever!!! Apparently, they used […]
