welcome
to my blog

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. 

Hi guys!! Coming atcha a married woman, so crazy!!! Craig and I got married on May 22nd so things have been a little crazy over here but I’m so excited to get back into the swing of things. I have a bunch of wedding/honeymoon posts coming in the next few weeks so stay tuned. First, […]

I am SO excited to share about Powell and Cheryl’s River Farm wedding last Fall.  Powell and Cheryl had to cut their guest list to immediate family only because of pandemic restrictions but you would have never known it being at their wedding.  The day was filled with so much joy and so much celebration.  […]
