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 my very last big wedding for 2021.  I have a small wedding in December that will wrap up weddings for the year. These two were such an incredible couple to end on, can’t wait for you to see their Fall day! Savannah and Cody attended the same high school […]

Nick and Leslie had such an AMAZING Fall wedding day a little less than two weeks ago. The day started at Leslie’s parents house and it was probably my favorite getting ready atmosphere ever! Her parents live in a gorgeous home in Crozier, Va and Leslie’s bridesmaids were her 3 younger sisters. They all got […]

I’m so excited to share Lindsey and Rob’s wedding day at Linden Row Inn with you!  Lindsey and I have really gotten to know each other over the past year during her wedding planning journey, I’m sad that’s all over but know we will be friends for awhile.  Another awesome and slightly intimidating thing about […]

Jessie and Hagan are the ONLY AE bride and groom I had not met until their wedding day. There have been a select few times, I’d never met the groom, but never both the bride and groom. I tell you this because I left their wedding feeling like not just acquaintances but friends! Jessie & […]

I have been counting down for this day for SO long!!! Matt and Mackenzie were originally supposed to be married February 13th, 2021.  Unfortunately, there was still a guest limit at this point and big events weren’t happening.  Another, crazy thing is February 13th there was a huge ICE STORM in Richmond so being with […]
