Tori + Tyler’s Wedding Day

Tori and Tyler reached out to us to be apart of their wedding and we were THRILLED to meet them!! We clicked instantly and I just knew we had met the best couple! Not only is Tyler and Tori from my husbands home town, they also spent their summers on Lake Cumberland, which is home to us! We couldn’t wait for their special day! They remind me of my husband and I, Tyler is the life of the party with a great since of humor and Tori likes to have fun, but also sweet and has it all together, ha! It makes a perfect match, just like us! Their wedding was the end of March and the weather was gorgeous, a lot of things were not blooming but thats okay because everything was  beautifully decorated and the venue was so pretty! The wedding colors of pink and a little blue were perfect for spring, and the venues white barn was so cute!

It was precious to see Tori’s first looks with her bridesmaids, her Dad, and Grandparents. Then onto the first look with Tyler, his expression when he turned around was priceless! Their love for each other truly shows in just the way they admire one another. You could feel it through their day!

The wedding ceremony was finally here and then the reception began! It was such a fun evening! These guys sure knowhow to dance and throw a party!

We hope these two had fun on their honeymoon and we wish them so much happiness in the many years to come as one!

Thank you so much Tori & Tyler for having our team a small part of your day,

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

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!

Carlee + Brett

November 5, 2020


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! 

XOXO – Tonya Lynn

Lauren + Darin

October 31, 2020

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

October 30, 2020

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!

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

Whitley + Darius

August 29, 2020

Whitley + Darius’s Wedding day was such a beautiful and cooler August day. After many years of being together and pushing their wedding day back because of COVID this day was long awaited for.

This venue was such a stunning and unique place. It was so spacious and had the most distinctive style + design. The stone details were to die for! Their day was filled with laughter and sunshine. Their first look was filled with tears and smiles from ear to ear. We ventured down to the venues creek and took their bridal portraits. The prettiest little butterfly landed right on Darius’s finger and didn’t want to leave. It was such a sweet detail from the day. Their ceremony + toasts were filled with the sweetest words form their loved ones. They ended the perfect night dancing the night away celebrating Darius + Whitley’s lovely Wedding Day! We wish you all the best!
