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. 

Today’s post is a personal topic that I’ve gotten a ton of questions about lately!! I thought I’d do a blog post about it to answer some questions, help my brides that are currently dress shopping during the pandemic, and to have this experience documented for me to look back on one day!! I am […]


Wedding Dress Shopping during a Pandemic

August 20, 2020

After photographing close to 100 engagement sessions, it’s time to share my very own!!! Before I share some photos, I want to share about our wedding photographer!! The number one question I have gotten since getting engaged is by far, “So who will be YOUR wedding photographer?!” The answer is Corrin Jasinski Photography! Although I […]


Our Engagement Photos!

August 6, 2020

Hiiii, how is everyone? I can’t believe we’ve been in quarantine for over two months already, so crazy!!  I recently thought about how it might help my brides and future brides if I shared a little bit about my own wedding planning journey.  Planning a wedding is always semi stressful but right now it is […]


Venue Search

May 19, 2020

I’m so excited to share about our sweet proposal that happened on Saturday!!! Craig and I are both still on cloud 9, not sure when that will wear off.  I have gotten so many questions and I hope I cover everything in this post.  I also am excited to have all of this written down […]


Our Proposal!

May 5, 2020

Hey guys!  I am hoping to do more blog posts in the next few weeks since I’ll have more time!! Recently I’ve been busy with school stuff, front porch sessions, and A NEW PUPPY!!!  River joined our family exactly one week ago but we had been talking/thinking about him for awhile.  Craig will tell you, […]


Meet River!!!

April 24, 2020

Hii friends, I hope everyone had a great weekend!! I wanted to write a little bit about some house updates I’ve done lately because a lot of people had questions on facebook and instagram.  I’ve lived in my house now for a couple weeks short of 3 years, crazy!! I decided to use some Christmas […]


House Updates

February 24, 2020

I took the opportunity to take photos of some of my Christmas decorations the one time my house was clean- right before my Christmas party!   I haven’t shared much about my house on the blog because there’s so much I want to do with it, but why share when everything is perfect? I bought my […]


Christmas on Jeffrey

December 24, 2019

This past weekend was my last busy weekend until my January 11th wedding weekend!! Also, I can’t believe I’m posting this because I still have Christmas wrapping and a tad bit of shopping to do, anyone else?!? This past weekend started off with a little bit of a rough start.  I ate something funny on […]


Weekend Wrap-Up #11: Christmas Break

December 23, 2019

With Thanksgiving today, I thought I’d take a second to appreciate the things that come with being a wedding photographer.  This job and business was not something I ever dreamed I would be doing.  I didn’t start taking photography classes until I was out of college.  Ever since I got into the wedding industry, I […]
