Hello! My name is Julie Crawford and I am the artist behind Magnolia + Ember. M+E is a self-derived brand sharing my passion for love, travel, and powerful human connections. You cannot expect me to just be your photographer because my approach often leads to great friendships with couples. The goal is to get to know you and your partner on a level that I learn what ignites your senses and use that to light sparks in your pictures. The creative art of being a photographer, holding a piece of time and space, awakens my soul in a way that makes me confident that this is meant for me.
I live at the foot of the Smoky Mountains and have been a wedding photographer for nine years. Although I am based in Tennessee, traveling to your destination is always welcomed. In addition to the wedding venues I have photographed throughout Knoxville, Nashville, and Asheville, I have helped plan and document adventure elopements all over. Let me know the scenery, vibe, and where you are willing to go, and I will take care of the rest.
Licensed to shoot in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park with CUA permit.
