Courtney + Mike

May 7, 2021

We enjoyed an evening with Courtney and Mike. We were so excited about meeting this couple, we have had virtual calls with them but had never met them. We just knew we would click. They both live in Lexington, Mike is from Lexington but Courtney is not, we actually met them through our wedding planner Sarah! Which Sarah will be planning their wedding and came along with us on this shoot!  We knew it was going to be such a fun time!

We met in Lexington with their cute dogs, who they adore! Who wouldn’t? look at them and they were so lovable!

Then we went to Gratz park, for some photos with all the traditional Lexington hot spots!  We ended the session at a gorgeous sunset at Keeneland.  All of these locations are so special to them as they have grown to love this city as a dating couple.

We are so excited for Courtney and Mike’s wedding day in April 2022! It will be here before you know it.

Thanks for such a fun evening!

Lauryn + Matt

May 5, 2021

Lauryn and Matt’s engagement shoot was so whimsical, everything was blooming and spring is finally here, YAY! We are looking forward to their wedding day this Fall.  Lauryn and Matt are from the same hometown and was raised growing up knowing one another. It was until after they graduated high school they started pursuing one another, and their love for one anther grew!

They both went into the medical field. Matt decided to propose to Lauryn at the beautiful Biltmore Estates, as you can only imagine how awesome that was!

Matt and Lauryn are just the cutest together, during their shoot we found a field of four leaf clovers which says how lucky they are! I know their wedding day is going to be absolutely amazing with lots of true luck. They are getting married in London at The Oak Hill Gardens, we can’t WAIT! We have never shot there before, which makes it even more exciting for us!

We hope you love Matt + Lauryn’s engagement shoot as much as we do!

Leelynn + Turner Wedding Day

May 1, 2021

Leelynn and Turner’s wedding day was held at the Farm on the Lake overlooking the gorgeous views of Lake Cumberland. Leelynn and Turner are not from Kentucky but Leelynn spent every Summer on Lake Cumberland. So when they decided to get married she knew instantly exactly where she would say their vows overlooking the mountains and lake.  Leelynn is a very sentimental person and wanted to incorporate many things during her day that was special to her. She decided to have her Mother’s wedding dress and veil altered so she could where the same exact dress that her Mother got married in. Not only did she wear her mothers wedding dress but she wore her grandmothers wedding dress to her rehearsal dinner, you can see the shorter version dress in the photos within the blog photos. She looked precious in it, it was so special to all of them. The cute little purse she carried was also a family heirloom. Despite the rain their love for one another filled the area. They had high spirits and a special joy filled day they will never forget with the most beautiful view!

Sabryn + Jake

April 21, 2021

Sabryn and Jake’s Session was a dream! I was so excited to spend the evening getting to know these two more. They are the sweetest couple and seriously joy radiates from them! I just knew it was going to be perfect.  Everything was blooming and the trees have finally started to turn green! We started the session out by having their dog Blu walk along with us. He was so excited to meet new faces. We had a blast checking out this beautiful estate tucked away in our very own neck of the woods.

They were so giggly and you could tell they are just meant for each other. We laughed and shared stories while these two were rocking their session. We had quite the adventure to walk up to the beautiful white stone gazeebo and looked over to see a bunch of cows had gotten out of the fence! HA we were cracking up as they followed us down the hill.  The poor owner was trying to herd them and they were running in all directions. We had the best laugh about these cows getting out! It was an unforgettable Evening.

We cannot wait for their wedding that will be here so soon! See you on your wedding day!

Crystal + Max

March 23, 2021

Crystal + Max Engagement shoot

Crystal and Max wanted their engagement shoot to be in the Spring since they were getting married in the Fall of this year. We started out in Crystal’s home town, Centerville, Tennessee and then went to Nashville to the City they love. Max is a Volunteer Firefighter and wanted photos in his gear since this is a huge part of his life. They wanted the small town feel, incorporated with a touch of the big city.

We met at Crystal’s family farm where the apple trees pink blooms are in full swing! It was all so beautiful and since today was the first day of Spring, it fit perfectly with their day. We then went to downtown Centerville, it was such a cute quaint town, where everyone knows your name! After we left their town we went to the old railroad bridge that ran directly to their town. We then drove to Nashville to capture some photos on the Pedestrian bridge and The Ryman Music Hall.

Our team, TL Studios enjoyed getting to know Crystal and Max. Crystal is so sweet and Max’s laughter will brighten anyones day. They are truly such a great compliment to each other! We can’t wait to travel back to Centerville, TN in November to enjoy and photograph their love story.

Hannah + Zach

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!

Alexandra + Quentin’s Fall Engagement Shoot

November 8, 2020

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!
