This small business started out in 2012 as just one videographer in the music industry under the former name Carly Viator Media. Projects included the production of music videos, band photos, album artwork, and flyer designs. After exploring design for the marketing world, Electric Magnolia was born. We have evolved into a diverse, full-service creative media studio that works with businesses, artists, festivals, weddings, events, and even families to create compelling and creative content. 

Electric Magnolia is capable of building an entire concept - from logos, images, and videos to beautiful websites.  It's a one stop shop, really. 


We are a husband and wife team with diverse skillsets that come together to form a unique business. Our company also serves as an umbrella for other creative freelancers. We now have a strong team of highly skilled photographers, videographers, and designers that we collaborate with. No day is ever the same and this is why we love what we do.
