Hello friend, your journey to the best day ever starts right here!

I’m Julie Crawford, the passionate creator behind Magnolia + Ember, and I specialize in designing authentic and awe-inspiring experiences. You deserve a wedding that is a genuine reflection of who you are, filled with elements you love and activities that bring you joy as a couple. My art seamlessly combines the emotional depth of human connection with the enchanting beauty of Mother Nature.

As both your photographer and planner, I accompany you every step of the way as we co-create an immersive adventure and bring your dream to life. Whether you envision a “just us” elopement or want family and friends present for an intimate destination wedding, I offer comprehensive assistance throughout the planning process. This includes, but is not limited to, brainstorming ideas to personalize the experience, providing location recommendations, sharing trail reports, assisting with permit applications, creating a tailored timeline, and educating about Leave No Trace ethics to ensure responsible enjoyment of the outdoors.

Let’s get started crafting your wildly intentional experience.

She is knowledgeable of Leave No Trace principles and was also well versed in desired wedding activities, places to go, and things that need to be achieved for smooth elopement. I would 100% recommend her for your elopement (or any other activity). To us, this was our one day to truly focus on us, and she complimented that without effort and provided us with helpful planning and beautiful pictures.

The vibes I was going for absolutely matched hers and her dark and moody photography encapsulated what I wanted for my big day. When I finally met her, she was so kind and genuine and thoughtful! I can't stop staring at all of my photos and the backgrounds and all the magic she worked! I would absolutely recommend her for your wedding day, especially at a dreamy destination like the mountains!

Lindsay and Garret

Working with Julie was an absolute delight. I wanted someone to capture natural and adventurous photos, instead of traditional portraits that are more posed... Julie is a gifted and creative photographer. In addition, she is dream to work with. She was flexible and easy going, and also had great advice and answers to all our questions. She was so accommodating and easy to work with throughout the day.

Jessica and Kylen

I couldn't have imagined a more perfect surprise engagement, thanks to the incredible talent of Julie. From the moment my boyfriend (now fiancé) began planning this adventure, she was there every step of the way, ensuring I had no clue about what was coming. She is a true artist with a gift for capturing the most genuine and intimate moments.

Deanna and Jose

Julie at Magnolia and Ember is one of the most beautiful souls I've ever met. I saw her work from the waterfall at The Trillium and knew I needed her to be my adventure photographer for my wedding. From the moment I started talking to her I knew our passion for adventure was the same, and I felt so deeply connected... I can't thank her enough for keeping me calm, and being a part of our adventure. I am obsessed with every single picture she took!
