Ember Photography - Brian Mohr and Emily Johnson

Lucky enough to have been born and raised in the outdoors of Vermont and New England, we have learned to embrace each and every one of Mother Nature’s moods. After all, says a dear friend of ours, "If there's no rain... there can be no rainbows.” Since meeting in 1998, we have been actively exploring and photographing the beauty and wonder of this incredible planet - be it right out the back door or way off in Arctic Greenland.

Since our earliest adventures together, we have been shooting for a variety of editorial, non-profit and commercial clients - a list that today includes the New York Times, Outside Magazine, The Nature Conservancy, Patagonia Inc., Backcountry Magazine, Mad River Glen and others - while simultaneously developing a successful fine-art and wedding photography business. In February 2005, we opened our first major exhibit - 'Wild People, Wild Places' – in downtown Montpelier, Vermont. The success of this exhibit motivated us to continue sharing our images in the public domain - through an ongoing series of exhibits and multi-media shows that continues today.

Behind the lens on a daily basis, we have learned to work carefully and efficiently under some very challenging and changeable conditions. Exposure to New England’s ever-changing light and color pallets fuels our creativity, and we've developed the confidence to take on a wide variety of photographic projects successfully. Be it a great big wedding, a month-long adventure in the wilds or a catalog/product shoot, the two of us work together as a dynamic duo.

If you have questions about our photography, would like to purchase our photos, license photography for your business or website, schedule a presentation or otherwise enlist our photographic services, please contact us by phone or email. Thanks!

A note about Wild People, Wild Places:
In addition to encouraging others to enjoy and protect our planet's most special places, we make significant in-kind and financial contributions each year to organizations working toward these same goals. Be it the work of the Green Mountain Club to preserve the Long Trail corridor here in Vermont, or the wildlands conservation efforts of Conservacion Patagonica in the southern Andes, working with us helps to support the long term protection of our world's most special, and increasingly threatened, places.

A few of the organizations with which we work:

Winter Wildlands Alliance
Green Mountain Club
Conservacion Patagonica
Vermont Natural Resources Council (VNRC)
Stark Mountain Foundation
Catamount Trail Association/ VT Backcountry Alliance

Stark Mountain Foundation

Protect Our Winters

The Nature Conservancy

Vermont Association of Wedding Professionals (

Mad River Valley Chamber of Commerce /

Thanks! -- Brian & Emily

Brian could not have done a better job of capturing our special day. He was amazing at helping to set up what would turn out to be some amazing photos that we'll have forever. Couldn't recommend him more. Thank you, Brian!

Brian and Emily are both skilled photographers, and we’re so happy we got to work with them for our wedding. From our first meeting with them, we appreciated their thoughtfulness, professionalism, and humor, and they had a great balance of making suggestions and working with our wishes. They took a ton of photos during our wedding yet magically were never intrusive or overbearing, giving just a minimal amount of directions and making everyone feel very comfortable.
Brian and Emily were great to work with throughout the wedding planning process, and we’re thrilled with how our photos turned out!

I'm so glad we hired Brian and Emily to photograph our wedding! They were extremely friendly and warm, and it was great to get to know them in the process of working with them. We had a couple day-of schedule SNAFUs, and not only were they incredibly accommodating, but their calm and professional demeanor helped me keep my head screwed on when I was feeling stressed. Our photographs came out beautiful and we are so pleased with them. Their experience with outdoor photography meant that they were able to really capture the natural beauty of our Vermont wedding. I enthusiastically recommend them!
