come on in

hey there!

Magnolia + Ember is a Smoky Mountain wedding photographer, licensed to shoot in the National Park, and serves the greater Knoxville area. Beyond Tennessee, worldwide travel is available for intimate weddings and adventure elopements for couples who crave authenticity and depth.

Hello! My name is Julie Crawford. Welcome to your greatest adventure yet — one filled with tender moments and raw emotions. We will laugh together, cry, share stories, and feel like old friends by the time our journey is complete. Magnolia + Ember is more than just wedding photography, this is your time and space to really step into the power of love and embrace the essence of true connection.

And when the present fades, I want you to look back at those fleeting moments in still frames and have every feeling flow back through you. My secret to capturing this poetic authenticity is creating an atmosphere where you and your partner feel comfortable and supported being your genuine and beautiful selves. I want the photographs to reflect who you really are in spaces where you feel most connected — where ever that may be — and capture all emotional depth and candid moments of your unforgettable experience.
