Why, Hello there!

Charity Parrish 

Owner & CEO

Lead Photographer

Gender Pronouns: She, Her, Hers

Hi! I'm Charity, owner, photographer, and creative coordinator of The Elopement Co. I created TEC, because I believe strongly that getting married should be a fun celebration, not a giant, expensive, stressful event. I have 2 dogs, 1 amazing husband, and 9 tattoos (and counting).

I promise if you work with me, you will laugh. A lot. I love hanging out with cool people and helping them to celebrate their love in a really special way. I want to make your lives easier, and I want to make your courthouse or elopement wedding amazing. I can't wait to meet you!

Charity's recent work you can find all over the TEC website!

Megan Easterday

Client Coordinator

Associate Photographer

Gender Pronouns: She, Her, Hers

Hey there! My name is Megan. I like to say that my style of photography resides at the intersection of fine artist and flower child. Although it is important for me to capture the most high-quality, technically correct photograph I can, it also makes my heart sing when I have the opportunity to go with the flow and capture the emotion of the moment. When you work with me, I will help you feel comfortable as I capture your fancy selves on one of the most special days of your lives!


When I'm not working, I am going on adventures with my husband, Corey, and my sweet doodle-mutt, Stella. Some of our top activities include hiking, traveling to new cities and watching favorite TV shows including (but not limited to!) The Office, Parks and Rec, Doctor Who and Brooklyn 99.

Emily Maguire 

Social Media Coordinator

Gender Pronouns: She, Her, Hers

Hi I’m Em! I am the social media coordinator (and occasional elopement assistant) for The Elopement Co.


I love creating content and interacting with our followers on social media. I think it is an amazing tool for creating community! By the way, if you haven’t – check out our Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest pages!


When I am not working you can find me hiking, traveling, or hanging out at a brewery. I am also very active in the Charlotte community, if you spot me at an event please say hi!  

Adrian Parrish 

Client Communications, Officiant

Gender Pronouns: He, His, His

Hi, I'm Adrian. I love working with couples and helping them get started planning their big day. I also love the chances I get to be a part of the big day as an officiant. I love to hear the stories of how you came together and see the look on your face when you take that big step of marriage together.


When I'm not working, I like to write, work on films, and do live shows such as plays, sketches, or storytelling. I love hiking and going on adventures with my best friend--my wife Charity, who just happens to own TEC--and our good friends.

Kristy Yetman 


Gender Pronouns: She, Her, Hers

Kristy Yetman has been with The Elopement Company for 3 years and after she performed her 50th ceremony, she stopped counting.  She believes each ceremony is not just a formality but a memorable and shared experience.  She performs ceremonies that are tailored to meet the needs of the couple whether they be faith based, traditional with a touch of modern, or a non-religious style.  Kristy is originally from East Coast Canada and has been married for 15 years to her partner, Desmond.  She has a dog, a cat, and two clownfish.  

Petra O'Sullivan 

Associate Photographer

Gender Pronouns: She, Her, Hers

Hi, I'm Petra, your Aussie born and raised photographer, now married to an Irishman and living together in the USA with our 3 kids (human, not goat) and one sassy dog. I'm here as your ghostwriter, storyteller & bard; I thrive on stories and always have! If I'm not reading, watching or listening to someone else's tales, I'm creating my own stories, whether it's through writing, art, or photography (we'll skip over the silly stories I make up for my children, though)! And as your photographer, I'm going to weave your story into pictures, taking all the big moments--and the little in between moments that happen between one breath and the next--to tell the tale that is your life, now.

Aly Barnett 

Associate Photographer

Gender Pronouns: She, Her, Hers

Hey there! I'm Aly Barnett! Most days you can find me wearing black leggings, in a yoga class, listening to my favorite podcast, and cooking. I am mostly known for my red hair, and my non-stop talking. I love serving the world by documenting what is in front of me. The things I am most passionate about in life are traveling, my fur baby, Sophie, nailing down crow pose, finding a new hard cider to try, road trips with my wonderful boyfriend, and teaching other photographers. A little bit more about me, I am from Charlotte, North Carolina and graduated from Savannah College of Art & Design with my BFA in (yes) Photography in 2015. I currently shoot weddings, elopements, engagements, and portraits. Being a freelancer is a full-time job, and hard work y'all! I am hoping to get my Masters degree in Photography and becoming a professor. Maybe even a Yoga Instructor!My boyfriend Sam and I met almost 3 years ago on Tinder. Yes Tinder! He is a High School History teacher and I cannot tell you how much fun our life has been! From traveling to Europe, Adopting Sophie, and drinking all the beer/cider in Asheville!
