To the most adorable woman and the love of my life: Happy birthday!
Still dreaming about this day.🌿
This past weekend, I shot my first ever (!!!) styled shoot. @visualparlay
💐 and I’ve been planning this shoot since May & as a creative team of 2, we poured our hearts into every single part of the process - from planning, styling, coordinating, to creating. It felt absolutely surreal to witness our visions unfold. But of course, the day would not have been possible without the gracious help of @hjaeh_
- we cannot thank you guys enough! 🖤 As I continue to pursue photography and grow my business, I want to encourage myself to 1. create without fear & the burden of comparison 2. make time for personal projects 3. always be my #1
fan. Can’t wait to share more from this shoot 😊

Я постоянно в поисках новых локаций для фотосессии, но есть места которые не нужно искать, они тебя сами притягивают.
У вас такое бывает?
I will love you until the day after forever 🧡 they say when the right person comes along, you know! It’s lifechanging and heartwarming and a little nervewrecking ;) Do you remember the moment you realised: ‘this is the one!’ ?
‘When I get to the end of my life, and I ask one final ‘What have I done?’ Let my answer be: ‘I have done love.’ Jennifer Pastiloff
Every day my life is perfect
because it starts and ends
with loving you.

I don’t know if it’s the look or the raw feeling it gives you but I love this photo for more reasons than one, real, raw feeling.
GUESS WHAT!!! I just blogged this PNW engagement shoot (I know I am surprised at myself too! Haha) This shoot was seriously a dream come true. ✨🌲😍 .
And, if you are wondering where exactly all the waterfalls & spots we went to are, just take a look at the blog because I promise they are listed in there (link in my bio) .
Oh! And someone please give me a reason to go back to the PNW!! 😍🙏🏼
Talk about puppy love 💕 What’s better then getting cozy for your engagement photos with your pups!?
“It is good to have an end to journey toward, but it is the journey that matters in the end...”
I was walking through the craft store last Friday getting a few last minute items for Saturday’s wedding when I noticed aisles and aisles of fall decor. I couldn’t help but notice the ads everywhere that the pumpkin spice latte is now in season. I panicked for a second thinking it was October and then quickly reminded myself that we are just an eager society constantly preparing for what season lies ahead.. but still, OCTOBER is right around the corner. Meaning my 2018 weddings are about to conclude and I’m about to be a mama. My mind is absolutely blown.
I’ll be taking the next few weeks to really reflect on the past 6 months and how stinking grateful I am for the incredible.. just INCREDIBLE people, friends and families I have had the joy of working with and I cannot wait to continue keeping in touch with all of you. As each wedding has concluded I’ve found myself growing a little more somber knowing our time of constant communication is coming to an end.. can’t thank you enough for reminding me why I started this little biz in the first place. Makes me really cherish the conclusion of weddings this year coming up next month.
And then there’s the journey of baby newman.. and the husband behind the scenes who has reminded me to wear my compression socks post wedding day, to hydrate, to celebrate successes, to take a “weekend” on a Tuesday, who assists with event tear downs and alphabetizes escort cards after a long week of work and travel himself. This journey has already been one for the books. Looking forward to some US TIME as we embark on our baby moon tomorrow and then a fun celebration with family and friends at our shower next week.
It’s oh so easy to get caught up in our plans and focus on what’s next. A little Wednesday reminder to take a moment and appreciate not only where you are today but how you got there. So much love and hugs to you all. xoxo
Having an overseas photoshoot would have crossed some of your minds. Some went ahead, some pulled back by schedules & probably on the huge outlay of finances for it.
In recent times, there’s an increase of enquiries in our cases for destination sessions, likely fueled by cheaper airfare.
And doing a destination session does not necessarily travel far, this lovely session is done just within our region and it’s a destination that all Singaporeans love to head to for its night markets, cheap buys and of course, massages.
We invite interested couples to talk to us for a non-obligatory discussion, our team is more than willing to let you in on how to achieve that destination session of yours. :)

The flower toss is always so much fun!
Shameless confession: I hope I catch one soon 😏😉 *cough cough you know who you are HAHAHA
I love being able to photograph couples in love. Love is an adventure.
Back to back to the basics 😉
Double posting today, who am I lol 👀 I just wanted to say that I’ve decided to start a blog, that way I can showcase more photos that never make it to IG and so I can brag about my rad couples 😎🤘🏼 Also, can you tell how fast Josh was spinning @megan.smeck
from just looking at her hair 😂
Loved seeing these two tonight!! So fun when couples come back after their first year of marriage for more pictures! Even better when the pups tag along! ❤️
Hellurrrr everyone, it's the girl that's usually behind the camera 🤷🏽♀️
Who’s more giddy (giddier?) in this walk up the aisle? Bride with the cute, scrunched nose or dad with the squinty eyes? Hard to say 🤷🏻♀️ happiness all around
“You are my strength and comfort
You are my steady hand
You are my firm foudation
The rock on which I stand
Your ways are always higher
Your plans are always good
There's not a place where I'll go
You've not already stood”
Holding on to summer as long as possible over here at Brackbill Creative.
🌻 Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair.
Aquele feeling de inverno 🌻💖
Moody ferns are my happy place. Thinking about getting some framed up on the wall but can’t decide it that’s too stereotypical... you’d thing as someone who takes photos for a living, I’d be better at this kind of thing 😅
Today was pretty hot, but these two are hotter.
I keep getting caught in this loop of editing previews from one shoot quickly then going back to the other shoots I need to edit and deliver. So I am currently back and forth between photos from the sunset on the Oregon Coast to this sunrise on the water in Virginia in Downtown Alexandria.
Being all lovey dovey in a greenhouse. Does it get much better than that? 🌵

I turned 26 this week and it made me nostalgic because I shot my first wedding at 25! It’s wild to see where one year in weddings has taken me (literally: California, Illinois, Colorado, Texas, Greece) + figuratively (so, so thankful). I’m blown away by my happy, adventurous couples and can’t even believe capturing love is my job! So excited to see what 26 brings, starting with some shoots in my new crazy-beautiful home state + venturing to Alaska next month!
Remember that time I said I was going to stalk couples in Greece and you all thought I was crazy? Well I wasn’t kidding! I met Nebey and her husband Nega on a white washed rooftop path exploring Santorini and luckily they didn’t bat an eye when a complete stranger asked to photograph them. We only had about 10 minutes together, but the connection between them was immediately apparent. She snuggled into him and he held her and everyone else washed away like they were the only ones on the island. That’s deep love people.
Congratulations to Joey and Carina on tying the knot this past weekend! I pray victories and eternal companionship over y'all. God has intertwined your souls and made them one! Also, we are working on a little surprise for y'all (followers)...but no more further details until later! ❤🌿🌸
Lace or Tulle?
Which do you prefer?
Perhaps both, or maybe neither.
Either way, it’s your day to shine! ✨
I love that everything at a wedding has thought put into it. Choices made over the months or years of planning all coming together #modernnestphotography
Eventually the smoke will clear! I want to go play in the rain again ☔
Dreaming of all our upcoming shoots, they are going to be full of such adventures and memories.
We have a discount post coming up for all future brides and grooms out there, for our engagement/wedding package! 😊😱✨ We are so excited to give back to all of you who have been showing us so much love! If you have any other shoot dreams, please reach out! We would love to chat! ✨
