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’m so excited to share Emily and Matthew’s beautiful summer wedding at Seven Springs. We had a hot day but you would have never known by the amount of joy and fun these two and their guests had!! Emily and Matthew were both so organized and detail oriented which made my job so much easier. […]

Even being a state away, no detail was left out and everything turned out beautifully! Susannah and Spencer remind me a little of my husband […]

Today I am sharing Jacob and Dakota’s amazing, classy Keswick Vineyards wedding.  It was such an incredible day!! The forecast all week was showing light rain and it held off for them to have their gorgeous Vineyards wedding!  Just pulling up to Keswick is an experience in itself.  You drive up a long driveway and […]

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 […]

Lianne and Ryan had the absolute perfect weather for their April wedding day.

We started the day at the Hilton downtown which was such a classy place to get ready. The rest of […]

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 […]

This blog post is really full circle and so special to me.  Lindsey and I met in second grade at Cool Spring Elementary School and basically lived at each other’s houses throughout middle and high school.  Our favorite past time was biking through our neighborhoods that connected to go get McDonald’s and check out a […]
