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. 

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 […]

Rainy Charlottesville Wool Factory Wedding Leading up to Annie and Adam’s wedding day, I was obsessively checking the weather and finally decided that it was going to rain all day long and we’d make beautiful portraits inside. You can imagine my surprise when the forecast changed literally 30 minutes after I arrived at The Wool […]

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 […]
