Get ready for an unforgettable wedding experience. When you book your intimate wedding or adventure elopement with Magnolia + Ember, you get so much more than just a photographer who wants to take a few quick pictures in a beautiful place. You get an artist who truly knows the craft, the ins and outs of how to get married in the wild. You get an adventurer that believes your wedding should be a deeply fulfilling experience. With my extensive knowledge and skills, I will guide you every step of the way during the planning stages so it is an exciting and stress-free process.
The options are endless when it comes to planning an adventure elopement. We can spend the day in a National Park, travel abroad, hike to watch the sunrise and explore until sunset, get cozy in a cabin and hire a private chef, take an overnight backpacking trip and camp together, exchange vows floating in a hot air balloon, or even drop from a helicopter in a remote location. Want to have a mud painting ritual on top of a mountain? I'll bring the towels! The adventure can be as chill or extreme as you want because this is about creating an authentic experience around your dream vision that will be beautifully unforgettable.

Retaining costs are put towards your total balance.
Yes. I have a curated schedule of all the places I currently have booked outside of my local region 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’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.
You will receive a handful of sneak peeks within one week of your wedding to enjoy while I work through the editing process. You will receive your full gallery 6 weeks after your wedding. 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 maintain 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’re interacting with each other and forget that I’m even there.
