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. 

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 […]

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 […]

Calling all COVID couples!

When Craig and I started planning our Sedona trip right after Christmas I knew I wanted to take portraits of someone in the beautiful red rocks. I was trying to figure out how to find a couple that would let me photograph them and then I had an idea. What if I found another photographer […]
