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. 

The Barns at Mattaponi Springs I have been looking forward to David & Delani’s wedding for a long time!! The day totally lived up to the hype too! I grew up in the same neighborhood as Delani’s family and have photographed her siblings a few times so I knew it was going to be such […]

Spring Maymont I actually can’t believe we almost rescheduled this session!! Grace and Lewey live in Wilmington, North Carolina and were only in town for the weekend.

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 […]
