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. 

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 […]

This engagement session felt like I was photographing old friends when really I’ve only met Lianne and Ryan one other time. They are just that friendly and easy to get along with!! Lianne’s brother got married this past March and I vividly remember watching her and Ryan interact and thinking to myself “they will be […]

So funny story- I thought we were doing anniversary photos of Sarah and Cameron at their house. So when I pulled up to the address they gave me, I was SHOCKED. This has been a staple house in Mechanicsville ever since I was little. It’s a gorgeous white house surrounded by fields and a white […]
