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.
Ellie & Gray got married downtown Richmond at the beautiful Commonwealth Club.
Craig and I tied the knot at the beautiful Pharsalia in May surrounded by our amazing family and friends.
Kelsey and Jay recently had baby Preston and we took in home newborn photos!
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 […]
Summer Jefferson Hotel Wedding Rachel and Mike’s summer Jefferson Hotel wedding was INCREDIBLE! The venue itself is already so classic and beautiful, it was the best backdrop for such a special union. Rachel and Mike live in the DC area. I recently photographed their Georgetown engagement photos with their pup, Butter. Unfortunately, Butter couldn’t make […]
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 […]
Summer in Georgetown I absolutely loved taking Mike and Rachel’s engagement photos in downtown Georgetown! I feel so lucky to live in Richmond where there are so many beautiful photo spots but there’s something about going to an entirely new town that makes me feel super creative all over again. Not only did I shoot […]
Special Connection I’m so excited to share this incredible, intimate Virginia House wedding with you today!! I had a special connection to this wedding because not only do Chelsea and I have a mutual friend, but Chelsea clocked into work on the Labor & delivery unit at St. Mary’s about 10 minutes after Annie was […]
Richmond Commonwealth Club Ellie and Gray got married at the beautiful Richmond Commonwealth Club. The forecast was not looking promising all week leading up to Saturday but miraculously we got lucky and had pockets of time to get portraits outside. This wedding was extra special to me because I photographed their rehearsal dinner the night […]
The Gardens during Maymont Golden Hour You really can’t beat Maymont golden hour during the Spring! I felt like everywhere we turned I was stopping Lindsay and Ballard to take another photo. The flowers were in bloom and the weather was absolutely perfect!! We ended the shoot at Byrd Park with their adorable pups for […]
My favorite post to do all year long!!!!! This is the 7th annual superlatives post and it was so hard to narrow these down. I’m so so so thankful for every couple that trusts me with such a huge part of their wedding day. I don’t take this job lightly and each of these weddings […]
Christmas Wedding at Williamsburg Inn This Christmas Wedding at the Williamsburg Inn was so magical and the seasonal light added to the ambiance perfectly. Expand on this a little more.
