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. 

We planned this engagement session date months ago and we couldn’t have picked a better day if we tried!! The trees were in full bloom and everything was beautiful. A little backstory- we had planned to take most of their engagement photos at Maymont. When I arrived a few minutes early, I saw a sign […]

12 Years Later Brittany and Tucker’s Capital engagement session was extra special because these two have been together over 12 years!!! They grew up in the same town and met as kids. Tucker even proposed to Brittany at the putt putt course they had their first date, so adorable! You could tell they had been […]

Mechanicsville Newborn The Bissoon family is the absolute sweetest and come to find out, they only live a mile from me! Baby Benjamin was born six weeks ago. I typically do newborn sessions within 2-4 weeks of babies being born but this ended up working out PERFECTLY! Benjamin was so alert for photos- he’s already […]

Seriously where has the time gone?! I can’t believe I have a three month old and I really can’t believe it’s already time to go back to teaching after 14 weeks at home. Cue the tears! I am SO lucky that my mom is going to watch Annie at her house until June. Craig and […]

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 […]

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 […]
