Hannah + Zach
We are SO happy this day is finally here. After many times having to change plans and the chaos of COVID, their day has finally come and we couldn’t have been more excited for them! Their wedding was on a beautiful sunny day and started at French Lick, Indiana. The hotel at West Baden Springs Hotel was so pretty and unique. The details of the day were so well thought out. They got ready with their closest family and few bridesmaids and groomsmen. Their first look took place on the beautiful balcony and his reaction was adorable! After shooting at French Lick we headed up to Pete Dye Golf Course and got some STUNNING photos overlooking the course. It was breathtaking. We then headed to a little church that her late grandfather built and they got married there. Despite all the changes in her schedule they ended up getting married at a place that was so very special to them. Let me tell y’all, Zach’s reaction was precious. He cried before she even walked down the aisle. It was so sweet. They ended the night with their family and some bomb pizza and lemon cake. We are so excited for you and wish you all nothing but the best!

I was so excited to have been asked to photograph Layla’s senior photos this year. She is a Senior at Pulaski High School 2021. We have known her family for a vey long time and her sister has been such a close friend to our daughter. As you can see in her photos, Layla carries herself with such grace, beauty & elegance. She is a country girl within all the gorgeousness. She is very determined and has many goals and interest for her future! I know that she is going to do great things and I can’t wait to see her many accomplishments in life. Layla, we can’t wait to continue to rock more senior season sessions with you this year! It will be a blast!
Alexandra and Quentin have the sweetest love story! They were both pharmacy students and the instructor told the entire class during orientation to look around the room because chances are your future husband or wife is sitting right here. They did not know each other at that time, but he was so right! The first few weeks of school they went out with a group of friends and met! She says there was a lot flirting for weeks (which how could he not flirt with her? Check out her adorable dimples!) Then he asked her on a date to Keeneland! When they mentioned wanting to have their shoot at Keenland we knew it was going to be so special! It was beautiful! Despite the crazy wind advisory we got the most beautiful shots that captured their love, and what was left of the fall colors. We had so much fun getting to know them and adventuring around Keenland.
We are so thrilled to be photographing their wedding in 2021!
Addison is a Somerset High School Senior 2021
Addi is so beautiful but, not only does she have that going for her she is also so sweet. If you follow Addi, then you know she is super athletic! She plays so many sports and decided for the first time this year to cheer her senior year! She also is Somerset’s High School new Football homecoming queen. Not only is she all these great things, you should check out her TikTok, because the girl can dance her heart out and she has more followers than I could ever have, ha! What can I say, she is pretty amazing. We can’t wait for her next senior shoots!
Carlee + Brett’s wedding date was the most popular date of the year for weddings! The weather was the perfect temperature with a battle of rain. The rain held off other than small misting until the ceremony which was in our favor. Our Associate Becca has known Carlee for years as they’ve grown up together in church, so it was so special for us to be photographing this family’s wedding. It was such a great day; we didn’t let the rain stop us from getting some gorgeous shots. The property had the prettiest view of all the changing trees and even had the cutest area of flowers still blooming! The ceremony was intended to be outside but had to be moved inside the barn just in case of rain, sure enough the rain came right during the ceremony. The floral of the day was absolutely gorgeous and the mix of blooms with the colors of the dresses, the arch at the ceremony were all so magical! Her braided hair with floral and his blue handsome suit set the day full of sure romance! We are so happy for Carlee and Brett and even though it rained (which is the best luck for wedding days) we got the most beautiful photos and it was such a perfect day! Congrats y’all and we wish you so many more years of much happiness and love!

Lauren and Darin wanted their Fall engagement shoot to be cozy and fun! It was such an adventurous evening! We met at Cumberland Falls and explored the trails and awed at all the colorful trees. It was a very misty, overcast day which was complete opposite from their spring shoot. We loved how that captured all the feels of the evening! We started out at capturing the famous bridge and workout our way down the the bottom of the falls. We ventured all throughout the park and had the best time getting to know our couple and exploring. Once we had captured all the cozy falls we ventured up to the lodge to end the night off. The colors of the trees were all so bright and the wind hit Lauren’s hair just so perfectly. Darin reminds me so much of my goofy husband and Lauren is more like me! They really compliment each other. I know their wedding day is going to be gorgeous and as always, we can’t wait!
Shannon & Dylan’s Fall engagement shoot was in Lexington, Ky. As you can see in the photos the Fall colors were so vibrant and sure did set the tone! Shannon and Dylan wanted to make sure that their dog, Jenson was a part of their shoot! He was the sweetest! We started the session out at Jacobson Park and ran around the area! We loved the huge pine trees, so we started there. After we ran through the pine trees we went to a cute little bridge and an area that looked just magical the way the light was glowing. Once we shot all the magical light we went off towards the water to find the most colorful trees to end the night with a perfect sunset. Shannon and Dylan are just so sweet and you can see their love for each other! We had such a fun getting to know them this evening and we can’t wait for their wedding day to celebrate them!
Kenton is a Senior local to our area! We decided for Kenton’s photos shoot to do something for Fall, with all the pretty colors, etc. We met at a creek in Eubank and then went to family farm close by. Kenton was such a pleasure to photograph, so mature and handsome! He really does look like a guy model! HA! Kenton also has a soft spot for his little dog and wanted some photos as well! I have no doubt that Kenton has a very bright future ahead of him!
Tori + Tyler Fall engagement shoot
We had planned Tori and Tylers Fall engagement shoot at Lake Cumberland. As you all probably know I actually live on Lake Cumberland, Somerset but Tori And Tyler are not from here. This location was very special to them as they spend their summers boating on Lake Cumberland. If you have never visited this area it is a must see location, such a beautiful man made lake. We met at Lake Cumberland resort, most trees were changing to Fall colors and it all was so pretty. When we traveled to this spot there was no rain in the forecast but as we arrived that rain chance went to 80% quickly, without warning. UGH! Anytime we have rain we work around it and make the best of the situation. Not only that, but I feel like rainy photoshoots can actually make really spectacular photos. The foggy background is really quite elegant in photos.
I also loved the way that Tori and Tyler was so positive about their shoot and didn’t let the rain get in their way! Check out Tori’s hair it looked amazing the entire time as well. We adore this couple and can’t wait for their spring wedding day, we know it is going to be the best day rain or not!
Gracie + Logan’s Wedding Day
Gracie & Logan’s love story goes back to third grade, Gracie’s little friend told her to be Logan’s girlfriend and so she did. They have been together ever since. They have waited for this day for a very long time and it couldn’t be more perfect! We were so excited for their wedding day! When we arrived at their families estate we were in awe! When I say we were all giddy with excitement over the estate, we were all like ” Oh my goodness look at that! Look over there. STOPP look at the view.” Gracie + Logans family were angels! They were so sweet and kind. We truly couldn’t have had a better day. The weather was 70s and sunny with the most wonderful people. Gracie was the most laidback bride, which really set the mood for the day. Leading up to their first look Logan’s nerves were high and as soon as he saw her all the nerves lifted. He was so emotional during their first look, it was so sweet. Come ceremony time Logan + Gracie both had tears as they met each other at the alter. We captured the most stunning images throughout their day. They even got in a little john boat down by their pond, they are such troopers! To end the day off they danced the night away with some KILLER dance moves.
Gracie + Logan we wish you nothing but many years of a wonderful marriage. Your day was stunning and FULL of joy! oxox, Tonya Lynn Studios Team
