Lindsey + Brian summer wedding
It was a super hot beautiful day in July, preparations were made for preventing covid and the guest list had to be cut due to govenor’s orders. Despite the list being shorter their day was so special and filled with joy. Everyone celebrated their love for one another and it truly was such a special day.
The day was perfect, Lindsey got ready with her gals and laughed all morning. She was so relaxed and you could tell she was just so happy to be marrying Brian. They got married in the most beautiful little chapel hidden in Louisville, Ky, and the venue was just a few miles away in Simpsonville at a cute and whimsical barn. Their colors for their wedding was a mint & peach summer color, it all went beautifully together. All Guest had to
wear mask to enter the chapel, so after the ceremony all guest lined up and the Bride and Groom ran through the train of their family and friends. Their chapel ceremony and the walk through was so beautiful, and such a great way to say hello to guests. It was all so special. Only immediate family and bridal party attended the reception. They are hoping to have a bigger reception this Fall to celebrate with all the special people in their lives. All in all their day was so beautiful and their love for each other was shown throughout the day. It couldn’t have been any better.

Over Labor Day weekend, we got to shoot one of the most emotional weddings we’ve ever been to. From the ceremony to the toasts, I was trying not to tear up over all the sweetness that I saw.
I met Ben Purcell and Megan Massey last fall. I did a photoshoot with them one snowy day in the winter and then their full engagement shoot this past summer.
Ben and Megan are such a nice couple. They are both very involved in the youth programs at First Baptist Church here in Somerset — they actually met through church — and are very spiritual people. You could actually feel that through the entirety of their wedding, which made everything feel really special.
They were married at The Barn at Goose Creek in Russell Springs, which is a gorgeous venue with an upscale-country feel. Megan in particular loves Disney World (which is where she and Ben got engaged), and she incorporated little Disney touches into their day. They played songs from Disney, and they received a ceramic Mickey and Minnie bride and groom as a gift.
Ben loves golf, so the groom’s cake was themed after the sport, and the groomsmen wore golf socks, which was funny.
Actually, everyone in the wedding party was just really fun. You could tell they had good relationships — two of Megan’s bridesmaids were actually her sisters. Little Pike McClung was the ring bearer and, to keep him on track, one of the other boys kept feeding him Smarties, which was hilarious. He did great.
One of my favorite touches of their day was they served breakfast food for their dinner reception meal. I actually got to try chocolate gravy for the first time, which was really neat (and delicious).
Because of Hurricane Dorian, Megan had to rearrange their honeymoon cruise the day before the wedding — ugh, stressful! But she managed to rebook everything, and they are now in Jamaica. I hope they’re having a wonderful time. Thanks, Ben and Megan, for sharing your day with us. It’s one I won’t forget!
Andrew & Terralynn’s wedding is in November. We are so exited for this wedding as they are like family, They are from my husbands home town Eminence, KY.
We had a great evening with lots of laughs, chasing light & clear skies from the rain. I may or may not have fell down in a creek, geez! Thank goodness I had laid my camera down prior, Great memories for sure!
Seriously, how can this not be the sweetest engagement shoot since they have a new puppy, isn’t he the cutest? Gosh, I love dogs so much, he was such a good boy!
We ended the evening at Cave Hill Winery, they are always so gracious to photographers and we are so appreciative of that. If you have never seen their venue, you should check them out for sure!
Andrew and Terralynn are both in college and plan on going to graduate school, they have such a bright future ahead of them! Not only do they work hard but they do wedding videography on their spare time.
The Tonya Lynn Team are ready for the most important day of their future!

Brad + Maddy
We are so thrilled about these two getting married!
Brad and Maddy met at college in Williamsburg, KY. Not only are these two a beautiful couple but their connection is the sweetest! Brad took us to his family farm land, It was beyond gorgeous! We fought the rain and Brad showed us a little off roading, haha!
We are looking forward to their Fall October wedding, just around the corner!
Megan & Ben’s love story starts at church, when they met through a mutual friend. Anyone who knows Megan knows about her love for all things Disney. When Ben decided to propose, he surprised Megan at her favorite place, Disney World, with the most magical ring! It truly was a fairytale come true!
During Megan & Ben’s engagement session we decided to do a little something different and go for a boat ride. As we had the kindest help getting the boat in the creek, Tonya was perfecting the floral arrangements when the boat moved from the dock and she started doing the splits! Luckily she didn’t end up swimming with the fish! Now it was Ben & Megans turn to go for a boat ride. Once safely steady in the boat the adventure began. Ben & Megan went floating down the creek, while we played “Kiss the Girl.” Megan was truly living her best Ariel dream! It was enchanting!!
We then ventured around the land of a family friend, and soaked up all the beauty of this farm. It was a photographers heaven! After learning about the history of the farm and capturing every angle, we headed downtown to a hidden gem, a PINK wall! We ended the night at sunset after such an exciting, magical evening. We continue to get to know Ben & Megan, we love them and can’t wait for their special day!
Cheyenne and Gavin’s engagement shoot was perfect! When we met Cheyenne and Gavin we instantly knew we would be perfect to photograph them! Not only is Cheyenne stunningly gorgeous, but she has this southern charm about her and Gavin is such a handsome, kind, gentle fiance. When you put these two together there is a connection like no other. Their love shows in every touch and the way they stare into each others eyes!
We had such a great evening during their photo shoot and we can’t wait for their June wedding day, which can’t get here fast enough!
I know I have said this before but, every bride and groom that books Tonya Lynn Studios is not only our customer, but our friends! We look forward to capturing many memories with these two in the future!
Happy one week anniversary Ben & Emily! Their day was the most beautiful winter fairytale wedding. Everything was perfect! There was so much love throughout the day! Ben and Emily did not want to see each other before the wedding which is always a challenge for winter weddings because it gets dark so early. We lucked out and the sun shined and we were able to capture some photos right after the ceremony! Emily’s family were a big part of my husbands life (Jeremy) growing up from his home town, they were like his family. So with that being said it was such an honor when Emily called me and asked me to be there for her special day! Emily was just a little girl at our wedding 16 years ago and it brought back so many memories. She has become such a wonderful young lady and we are so happy for her! We can’t wait to see where Her and Ben’s life lead to!

Jeremy and I have been looking forward to capturing Kalli and Kevin’s wedding day ever since meeting them at their engagement shoot! Apparently God had different plans for us that day. Jeremy (my husband and second shooter started having severe abdominal pain) Needless to say he ended up at the ER on Friday with a kidney stone. Which he had never had before in his life. I had to go and photograph the wedding solo without my sidekick. Which was a challenge, but I think I did pretty good!
When I think about this wedding, fairy tale comes to mind, it was exactly that. Kalli and Kevin met while working at Disney World. How much more magical can that be? Their wedding was perfect! It sprinkled just a tiny bit, but the sun shined the majority of the day! It was such a joy working with this beautiful couple. Thank you Kalli and Kevin for allowing me to be your wedding photographer. I look forward to seeing your love grow and blossom.
Enjoy my favorites from their day!

Kalli + Kevin
This past weekend we met Kalli & Kevin in Cincinnati, OH at their wedding venue. This location is truly a dream, I can’t wait for their special day!!
These two met while working at Disney World, Orlando. How cool is that? The cutest love story ever!!
Can you believe that it was 90% rain at this moment? I have to admit I was skeptical about driving three hours with such a bad forecast. We got to the location and the sun came out. It was a gorgeous evening, what a blessing.
We may or may not have gotten kicked out of a wedding reception, haha!! Lets not mention what my husband did for a ring shot!! We will keep that between us, right Kalli & Kevin? It really was a fun evening!!
Kalli & Kevin, It is such an honor to be able to photograph one of the most important days of your life!! We are very grateful for you all!! See you all in September!!
