Joyful & Elegant Long Hunter Park Engagement

January 15, 2018


Laura is one of the first people I met when we moved to Murfreesboro, TN. She and I met while we were working at a local photography studio. Eventually she left the business to focus more on school and her full time career and I followed shortly to launch Ivory Door Studio full time. So, when she messaged me in September to chat about her wedding I was over the moon excited! Kory & Laura are getting married this September at her cousins venue, the Tomlinson family farm in Lebanon and we are beyond excited to get to spend the entire day with them both & their daughter, Aylah!

When we arrived at Long Hunter we met up with them for some beautiful casual photos of the two of them & Aylah near the large lake. Their outfits complimented the fall folliage perfectly and we had such a great time laughing while taking photos. Laura had found this really cool dress online that she knew she wanted to wear for some photos with Kory in his military camo. Which was totally perfect next to the lake during sunset. And of course we had to take some photos at our very favorite spot in the park with the grassy fields.
