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 don’t have favorite weddings because I truly love aspects of every wedding I photograph but this sweet couple rescheduled their wedding FOUR TIMES, so I had the most time to look forward to their celebration, wink wink! It absolutely lived up to the hype and beyond! Lindsey and Matt actually got married in December […]

Emily and Aaron got married last weekend at the beautiful Lakeside at Welch Estate in Powhatan, Virginia.  I have gotten close with these two over the last year through wedding planning and even had a doggy playdate (more to come)!  This couple is very admirable for numerous reasons but first and foremost, Emily is active […]

When I first read Sarah and Carter’s email inquiry about a year ago, I literally squealed!!  My whole life I’ve grown up spending summers at the river in Gloucester and walking around Yorktown beach at night.  Sarah actually grew up living on the river in Gloucester about .5 miles from our summer home.  The venue […]

My FAVORITE blog post of the entire year!!! I get to brag on all of my 2021 couples and let me say- this year will be hard to beat.  These 12 couples all went through planning a wedding (and some planning essentially two weddings) during a global pandemic which is NOT an easy task.  They […]
