Simple is good.
Non-traditional weddings and elopements are my jam. I believe exchanging vows should be stress-free, romantic, and an investment in your LOVE STORY.
My couples place an emphasis on unique experiences and intimacy. If you’re ready to splash in the waves, hop on a skateboard or say “I do” at your favorite coffee shop, I’m your gal!
Fueled by caffeine, creativity, and dog cuddles, I'm proud to pursue my artistic passion for a living. I’m a true West Coast girl with a laid-back vibe. Beaches, Tacos and Margaritas? Yes, please!
No clichés or awkward poses – together we create honest photos with genuine feels! To me, “Nest & Love” is a blueprint for session success. When you’re grooving in your comfort zone, the proverbial “nest” with the people you love, doing what you love, everything CLICKS!
I love to travel. From Seattle to San Diego my clients are ready to show their authentic selves. If you’re a chill fun-seeker that isn’t afraid to get a little messy, we’d work well together.
I specialize in small intimate weddings and elopements. Always available for travel!

Couldn’t have asked for a better photographer!
Tonya at Nest & Love was the best find of our wedding day ❤️ Her skill was amazing and we absolutely loved our photos but more so she has such an easy way of connecting with people and bringing out the most authentic and candid self of everyone. She has a great eye and unique ideas to capture who you really are. We are so thankful for her and the photos that captured our day perfectly!!Sent on 05/08/2020

Amazing Elopement Photographer
My husband and I lost our original photographer shortly before our elopement date. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise. We were introduced to Tonya and quickly fell in love with her work. She worked with us on a short notice to ensure we had the photos we wished for. We kept our wedding as a small elopement with only a few close family members and she blended in perfectly. My children adored her and she made the whole experience so enjoyable. We decided that she will be our photographer for all photos from now on!Sent on 05/08/2020
Nest & Love Photography's reply:Samantha, I'm holding back the tears. Oh my goodness, thank you! You made me fall madly in love with elopements. Now all I want to shoot is small intimate weddings! :)

When we came across some pictures Tonya had taken we knew that she was talented. We decided to take our very first family pictures. Well by a professional, not one inside a department store. Once again, her work was simply amazing! The way she treated our family. She work’s amazingly with all. My family is crazy and she was able to handle us lol... after that first time with her, well we not only found our forever photographer but we found a friend. Tonya is that great... she did my daughters wedding photos... i can’t even think of the right word that could describe how perfect the photos were! How great she dealt with a destination wedding that had many opinions and hands involved. Oh goodness she made the wedding flow. I then learned how hard of a career she has but how she handles it so easily. Her photos show the time, thought and love that went into them. Tonya radiates how much her career means and how important her clients are to her. Our foster sons first photos! I cried! No other words... Watching her during this... Tonya, if your reading this, just know how much it meant to me to have you take these! We then did our second set of family pictures.. Christmas pics on the tree farm! She again dealt with my crazy family but we had added three more to the mix! Again, amazed by her talent!Sent on 05/09/2020
Nest & Love Photography's reply:OK, now I'm full-on ugly crying. HAHA Thank you for your kind words. I feel the same way about your family. You may have started off as clients however I can say now that we are friends.
