Let's tailor your experience

FOR THE best day ever

Magnolia and Ember offers full day elopement packages allowing the time and space to incorporate all the fun activities and beautiful places you want to experience on your adventurous wedding day.

Every package includes photography coverage, all edited high-resolution digital images, unlimited downloads from your private online gallery that you can share with family and friends, printing rights, planning assistance, complimentary officiant signing (where applicable), and my travel fees for any location in the United States. That means you can pick any location in the USA, including Alaska or Hawaii, and you do not pay an extra cent to get me there. International travel is welcomed and subject to an additional fee unless the location coordinates with the travel schedule.

Couples photography packages can be used for engagement sessions, anniversary photo shoots, post-wedding portraits, or just because you want to go on an adventure with your partner.

Packages are based on coverage time needed for your choice location. Every package includes all edited high-resolution digital images, unlimited downloads from your private online gallery that you can share with family and friends, and printing rights. Adventure portraits are reserved for local regions throughout East Tennessee and Western North Carolina, and the exclusive rate is also available for locations that align with the current travel schedule.

A flat rate fee of $1500 secures a single date ($2500 for a multi-day elopement) that is applied to the full package price. The remaining balance is due 60 days prior to the elopement date.

Yes. I have a curated schedule of all the places I currently have booked outside of my local region and places I enjoy visiting during certain seasons that can be found on this page. If you do not see your dream destination listed, just ask and I'll see if I can make it happen. Depending on the time of year and desired location, if it fits in then I'm totally up to making the trip.

I've been to a lot of places, in fact, all 50 states in the USA and 38 (and counting!) National Parks. And, I’m really great at exploring new territories via Google Maps, extensive research, and online scouting to find all the best views, trails, and hidden gems. When I arrive at a new destination, I will scout the location and trails in person to ensure you have the best experience possible for your elopement.

You will receive a handful of sneak peeks within one week of your elopement to enjoy while I work through the editing process. You will receive your full gallery 6 weeks after your elopement. Engagement sessions and couples portraits take 3 weeks.

You will receive printing rights for your personal use that extends to your family and friends so they can print their favorites too. You are allowed to print at any location of your choice. I retain legal copyrights to the images as the author and creator per USC Title 17.

Almost every single person I photograph thinks the exact same thing. Worry not, I have some fun ways to ease tension and get you relaxed during portraits so you actually enjoy the experience. Most of the time, you are interacting with each other and forget that I am even there.

I provide help throughout the entire planning process so that you are well prepared for the adventure of a lifetime. I have traveled all 50 states in the US and explored every type of terrain. We will chat in depth about all the elements of your chosen destination, providing tips and things I recommend buying for the experience (my Amazon Storefront) and implementing Leave No Trace ethics to ensure we are enjoying Mother Nature sustainably and responsibly (blog: LNT How To Minimize Impact While Eloping Outdoors).

Also, you do not have to hike 10 miles on your wedding day. There are other adventurous ways to craft an elopement and still be amidst the wild. We can find shorter hikes (Western North Carolina is great for trails with a 2-mile roundtrip), rent a 4x4 to explore ohv trails, go camping (blog: Campground Elopement in the Smoky Mountains), hot air balloon, rock climbing, road trip, helicopter ride to a secluded mountaintop, dinner with a private chef in a cabin, or any other experience that feels like your best day ever!

Warning: this may lead you and your partner to a new hobby! I had a couple who were not avid hikers but determined to have a sunrise ceremony standing on a mountaintop and followed by a lunch picnic and hike to the base of a waterfall. During their preparation and practice hikes, they a love blossomed for hiking dates.
