traveling worldwide destinations

Hello! I'm Julie Crawford—the artist behind the lens, the location scouter, the planner for eloping in wild places, the dress zipper, the mirror holder, and the biggest supporter of your choice to ditch traditions and get married in a way that is authentic to you and your partner. With Magnolia + Ember, you can marry your best friend on the side of an ocean cliff or in the desert... on top of a mountain or deep in the forest... and I will guide you through every step of the way to make that dream your reality.

Get ready for an exciting, stress-free, intentional, and super fun


Weddings are not just for ballrooms...
Elopements are not just for courthouses...

in case no one has told you:

We’ve danced a thousand cosmic journeys
Lifetimes of finding our way back together
Our souls bound by metaphysical gravity
Colliding in the sacred force known as love

- Julie Crawford

Whether you choose a just us experience or want to share this beautiful moment with your closest family and friends, I believe the day should be crafted with intention and reflection of who you are as individuals and as a couple. I will help you plan the entire experience—locations, what to pack, activity ideas, marriage license info, permit applications, timelines, and so much more. Then when the day arrives, I'll be there to document the whole experience as it unfolds. I want you to look back at your photos and be able to feel like you are experiencing those moments all over again.
