welcome

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 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 […]

Rachel and Ryan are getting married on December 17th of this year at the Williamsburg Inn. I’m so excited to photograph them at the beautiful Inn when it’s decorated for Christmas!! I was equally as excited when they chose to have their engagement photos done here in Mechanicsville at their home and the Kings Charter […]

Lianne and Ryan had the absolute perfect weather for their April wedding day. I was extra excited for this wedding because I photographed Lianne’s brother’s wedding last year and their family is SO MUCH FUN! We started the day at the Hilton downtown which was such a classy place to get ready. The rest of […]

I’m so excited to introduce you to Richmond’s newest engaged couple! Proposals are such a fun thing to photograph because there is so much emotion involved!! There’s also something fun about being sneaky and catching the moment.  Will reached out to me about a month ago and told me his plan. Him and Brooke recently […]

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 […]

What an incredible engagement session!! When we scheduled these photos a long time ago, we had no way of knowing that the weather would be the perfect temperature or that they Fall leaves would be at their peak, we just got lucky!! Liv and Jackson were SO much fun and honestly so natural.  They laughed […]

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 […]

Ashley and Eric had the perfect Fall evening for their engagement shoot!  It felt so strange meeting them at 3:30 because we weren’t used to the sun setting so early but the lighting was perfect!! Eric and Ashley’s first date was on the rooftop at Quirk so it only made since to do some photos […]

I have been counting down for this day for SO long!!! Matt and Mackenzie were originally supposed to be married February 13th, 2021.  Unfortunately, there was still a guest limit at this point and big events weren’t happening.  Another, crazy thing is February 13th there was a huge ICE STORM in Richmond so being with […]
