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. 

Carlisle and Christy’s wedding was so special!!! They got married on a beautiful Friday afternoon two weeks ago with their closest family and friends in attendance.  Carlisle and Christy each have 4 incredible kids.  It was so cool to see the two families come together.  I am so thankful for my friendship with Christy’s daughter, […]

I don’t even know where to start with this wedding because it was honestly so wonderful.  This was my last wedding of 2019 and wedding season officially went out with a bang.  My 2020 wedding season starts in January instead of May or June this year, which I’m excited about.  Ally and Daniel got married […]
