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. 

Holly Field Manor in the Heat Brittany and Tucker had a beautiful Hollyfield Manor wedding on one of the hottest days of the summer! They had such an amazing attitude about the heat and were just so excited to get married. I was so incredibly happy this whole day, I honestly didn’t really think about […]

Summer Jefferson Hotel Wedding Rachel and Mike’s summer Jefferson Hotel wedding was INCREDIBLE!  The venue itself is already so classic and beautiful, it was the best backdrop for such a special union.  Rachel and Mike live in the DC area.  I recently photographed their Georgetown engagement photos with their pup, Butter.  Unfortunately, Butter couldn’t make […]

Another photographer reached out to me on instagram when I posted Will and Brooke’s Hollyfield Manor wedding sneak peek photos telling me how beautiful the photos were. The best response to that and to sum up their day was that everything was SO SEAMLESS. The weather? Perfect. The venue and planner? AMAZING! The couple? Super […]
