And we’re back! We took a brief hiatus here at Modern Nest this past month so we could focus on our wedding but we’re officially back in business. It was truly the best day of both of our lives. We have spent the past year pouring our hearts and souls into this celebration, and worked to bring as much of “us” into the day as possible, with so many people helping us realize our vision. We sourced the furniture and decor from thrift stores, estate sales, and local vintage sellers. We said “I do” on our altar rug from @bowmanvintage • Lee tirelessly refinished and recorded three Møller chairs for his groomsmens seats, with the best man sitting in a Møller 85 from @midmodandretro • Mel (tediously) hand sewed all the bench cushions with mud cloth scraps from @dkrenewal • Our guests tossed the gorgeous dried petals from @everlandfavours • All the reception tables were themed after different crystals and minerals - with our head table being decked out in rose quartz (of course) with all the gorgeous florals created by @moonbloomfloral • It was such an amazing experience to have everyone we love celebrate with us and get a glimpse into our business. Thanks to @jacquelyn.portolese and @kamrafullerphotography for getting the details and documenting the day so beautifully! You can check out the link in our bio to see more photos from the day. Special thanks to @whidbeypartygirls for trusting our vision and coordinating the wild day for us. Onwards 🥂
After another incredible, incredible wedding this weekend, I was reflecting this morning on how over-the-moon wonderful my couples have been since I began this journey. There will never be a day that I don't feel uplifted by the opportunity this job gives me to step into my couples' lives in such a joyful season. To see that love shining through - wow, what a privilege.
“You’re my, my, my, myyy, lover.”✨ It’s always so hard to choose between color and b&w, so I posted both! Which one is your favorite out of these two?

One of my favorites from their entire wedding day. Not an easy one to get when they literally zoomed past me, ha ha! Thank goodness for high shutter speeds and really good camera gear. 🙌🏻 Happy one week, Mr. & Mrs. Lindbeck!! ❤️✨❤️✨ .

Happy Monday!☀️ This weekend was packed full of weddings, which means today will be packed full of editing. .
These two newlyweds are going to get all dressed up again for a bridal session after their honeymoon. .
What are some of your favorite bridal session locations?👇🏼
Just over a week as husband and wife! 👰🏻🤵🏼 You guys I might share nothing but wedding photos from now on. 😂 It was the most perfect day! I never really understood when people said their wedding was the best day of their lives. Believe me, I get it now! Absolutely the best day of my life! 💒 And now I get a lifetime of trying to top it with the man of my dreams. Anything can happen when a southern guy and a northwestern girl fall in love. 💕
Um hi 👋🏻 Tonight actually felt like August, and Tyler & Hana were a dream.
Shout out to my husband for being the best pack mule tonight. Shooting almost 30 weeks pregnant was some serious business. .
Tim designed this wicked arbor for him + Rose’s wedding day and with help from @westernneonseattle it was brought to life and it was spectacular. When people make their weddings unique and personal and unapologetic, it’s the damn best.

Been soaking up this weekend of celebration with capturing this sweet + intimate day on Friday, and whooping it up at one of my best friends weddings yesterday 🌟 Tomorrow we’ll be back at it with making headway on some galleries to send out for my perfect client pals, scheming for 2020, and taking the time to dream more about the direction I’m headed in the midst of a crazy and promising season! •
These two beautiful humans remind me why I love every part of the wedding process. I love hearing the stories of how couples have met, got engaged and everything in between. Keep an eye out for the blog post coming this week!!!
@kacijohnson I had sooooo many favorites it was hard to pick one!! You guys are just THE sweetest
Loved photographing this chic table set up by the talented @petalandposy ✨ at a wedding on Bainbridge Island

Fun fact: this gorgeous sockeye salmon filet was part of my compensation for Brittany and David’s wedding!
David is a commercial fisherman and as part of their payment for their wedding, we added in a trade of 20lbs of FRESH caught sockeye. 💦best choice ever!💦 I loooove doing partial trades with my couples for their wedding photography. So feel free to make me an offer!

Last night was pretty amazing. I’m a pretty lucky person to be invited into these spaces, to be given a backstage pass where only I have access. It’s pretty rad
Thank you @amchyo92 and Anthony for having me. It was truly an honor and I cannot wait to share more! ❌⭕️❌⭕️

These are your girls. Your besties. The ones you chose to stand next to you and support you on your wedding day and through your marriage. Don’t forget to have a little fun with them. Pop some champagne. Tell some inside stories. Break down the dance floor with some epic girlfriend moves.
Up and at'em, friends! It's FOOTBALL SUNDAY! 🏈⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I don't know about you (Becca of B. Jones Photography here 👋🏼), but I'm planning on staying in my cozy clothes, baking some cookies, and watching football alllll day. What are YOU up to today?
S•T•U•N•N•I•N•G ... the couple especially - some of the sweetest we’ve ever worked with. 🖤

Just Maui’d! Happy 1 week of marital bliss to these two who are currently living it up on their honeymoon in Maui. (See what I did there?😏)
Many thanks for bringing me out of wedding photography retirement for your special day. It was absolutely worth it and such a fun and beautiful day.
Cheers to many more weeks, months, and years of togetherness and creating memories that will last a lifetime.💜

You spend so much time picking out WHERE to have your wedding. It speaks so much into who you are, your tastes and even your dreams. Small little quaint chapel with just your closest friends and family? Those are the most important people to you. Those quiet intimate vows you shared seem even more sacred when only shared amongst a few.

Sharing a few of my favorites from Lulu and her husbands sunrise couple session. I was so excited to finally shoot at sunrise, we had the whole beach to ourselves! Check out that twirl 😍 #AllahummaBarikLahum
Obviously, I can’t predict the weather. When scheduling your date for an elopement or adventure session, I can’t guarantee views for miles, or the most colorful sunset you’ll ever see. But I can guarantee an EXPERIENCE- one with fun conversations, laughter, champagne popping, and moments worth cherishing for years to come. I’ll even share my gummy bears with you ♥️
Oh and pictures? I’ve got you covered... can’t forget those 🤣
