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!

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!

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!
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!

Mackenzie + Seth’s dreamy wedding day!
My great photographer friend, Creative Images by Jennifer, referred me; Tonya Lynn Weddings to Mackenzie. I had not met Mackenzie until the day of the wedding, I fell in love with her and her family!
The venue was perfect! Jessica was wonderful to work with at The Springer House in Centerville, TN. This Venue was near and dear to Mackenzie’s heart as this land is her families 7 generation property and has stayed within the family. It meant so much to all!
Every moment of the day was breathtaking, every single detail had been thought out. I am so happy for Mackenzie and Seth and hope for a very long marriage of so much happiness. Thank you both for allowing Jeremy and myself to be a small part of your special day.
We adore you and we loved every minute of our day spent with you and your family.
XOXO, Tonya & Jeremy

Thank you both for allowing us to be a very small part of your special and forever day. We truly wish you all so much happiness!!
Mariah won my free engagement shoot at the local Wedding Expo at The Center for Rural Development. We had so much fun during their photo shoot, it was perfect. I loved getting to know them. Mariah and Kenny, I wish you both so much happiness!! There is only two more weeks until wedding season begins for me! I will be traveling to Destin, Fl, Nashville, Cincinnati, & some weddings local. I am super excited for the year!!
Finally! A brand new website, and I can blog now! YAY!
When I was thinking about what my first blog post would be, I had a few ideas, but what stood out the most was my success. I have to admit it hasn’t been easy. There have been a lot of tears involved — I have missed family gatherings, been absent in my friendships, and put a lot on hold in my life.
This is going to be my fifth year as a photographer. WOW! I can’t even believe I am saying that. Five years. It is crazy to look back and see the progress I’ve made. I am so excited to see where Tonya Lynn Studios goes from here. I don’t want to stop learning and growing, and am so grateful for the experiences I’ve had.
Last year, I attended a wedding workshop hosted by photographer Katelyn James at her home. I met 12 incredible women and learned so much. Next week, I will travel to Florida to train with the best in the country. I am thankful for this opportunity, and the ability to share with you what I learn on my blog. Stay tuned!
