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. 

My favorite post to do all year long!!!!! This is the 7th annual superlatives post and it was so hard to narrow these down. I’m so so so thankful for every couple that trusts me with such a huge part of their wedding day. I don’t take this job lightly and each of these weddings […]

Growing up I was obviously the one that made sure that all our family memories were captured and a certain someone did not always agree with me wanting to take photos. This same someone got engaged at the end of October and has since had me photograph the proposal and now engagement photos and I […]

I am so excited to share Ellie and Gray’s Richmond engagement session with you today! When I saw the forecast was saying the high temperature was going to be in the 40’s, I texted Ellie thinking they would cancel. I’m SO glad they didn’t because we had the most beautiful light and it really wasn’t […]

Kacie and James had a beautiful evening to do engagement photos here in Richmond! They came in town from Charlottesville with their adorable pups- Bentley and Judy. When they told me they weren’t bringing a dog sitter I was a little nervous but their dogs were so well behaved and so much fun to have […]

I don’t even know where to start when recapping this amazing wedding!! Susannah and Spencer live in Maryland and planned a wedding at the beautiful Boars Head Resort in Charlottesville.

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 […]
