KNOXVILLE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | WORLDWIDE TRAVEL
ADVENTURE WEDDINGS + ELOPEMENTS + COUPLES PORTRAITS
Magnolia + Ember is wedding photography for the fearless couples who thrive on authenticity and depth. Those soul-inspired lovers who stripped away all barriers within themselves and found their divine partner to share their whole self with. I crave hearing stories about the synchronistic journeys of couples meeting and their intertwined lives, as if each were created with the magic of the Universe. M+E exists for the opportunity to surround myself with kindred spirits, capture profound connections between lovers, witness extraordinary places on Earth, and fulfill pieces of my purpose for existence. The creative art of being a photographer, holding a piece of time and space, ignites my soul in such a way that makes me confident that this is meant for me.
There’s nothing traditional about my style, but rather I create experiences. I want to capture what is felt within the deepest parts of inner selves, and to do that, the moment has to be real. The approach I take photographing couples has a beautiful way of manifesting the greatest emotions that will radiate through the lens. I want people to look back at pictures and have every feeling of that moment come crashing down. The ultimate goal is to create an experience that will forever hold the amazing energy of time spent together encapsulating the love between two bodies and souls.
I'm based right outside Knoxville, Tennessee near the Smoky Mountains and available to travel worldwide for destination weddings, intimate elopements, and adventurous couples sessions. Whether it is eloping in Iceland on a black sand beach surrounded by glaciers and Northern Lights, expressing love at the base of rushing waterfalls in the Pacific Northwest, taking in the essence of the free-spirited Southwest, hiking the Rocky Mountains of Colorado to exchange self-solemnized vows, exploring the overwhelmingly beautiful spaces of Patagonia or Switzerland - and anywhere in between - I want to document meaningful relationships.
Often I’m lost [found] in natural spaces because my soul needs earthly roots, but don't let that fool anyone into thinking I don't get excited when I photograph a great wedding with an artsy vibe. There is something intriguing about the city. The energy set off in the atmosphere is electrifying. Love stories with an urban appeal are welcomed for those kindred spirits who believe in my style and share unquestionable passion and love for their partner.
