Bridal Portraits Thistle Hill Vintage Victorian Indoor Drama Tracy Autem photographer fort worth Audra 0001 Audra {Model Bride} Portraits at Thistle Hill

Audra was a beautiful bride a few weeks ago as she married her now husband, Matt.  I can’t wait to share her wedding as it was just a fabulous day with the best team including coordination and floral by my favorite team, Tami Winn Events.  For her bridal session I met up with Audra and her Mom at Thistle Hill in Fort Worth.  This historic mansion is the perfect setting for timeless portraits.  Audra’s gown was absolute perfection and the embellished belt just worked perfectly with her slender figure.  Amanda, our TCU intern helped me with lights and learned about how to work with a gown and veil and we had a lot of laughs.

Fort Worth Modern Wedding Purple Details Tracy Autem Dayna Tooley Eugenia & Michael {Married Part 3   Details & Reception} Fort Worth Modern Art Museum & Botanic Gardens

The reception is when the FUN happens and it is also where we get to see the hard work of Eugenia & Michael’s team.  I fell completely in love with the purple motif created in the grand lobby and cafe modern by Philip Combs Designs, Dayna Tooley Events, Specialty Sound & MM Special Events.  The floral was smart and crisp and the repetition of the sliver branches that mimicked the sculpture on the grounds was ingenious.  The lounge furniture and purple up-lighting gave the cafe the ultimate swanky feeling.  The food by The Modern was delicious as always and Eugenia, Michael and their guests and a fabulous time dancing the night away.  The yummy cake was by Creme de la Creme.

Eugenia Michael Fort Worth Modern Art Museum Botanic Gardens Wedding Dayna Tooley Tracy Autem Purple Army 0063 Eugenia & Michael {Married Part 2   First Look & Portraits} Fort Worth Modern Art Museum & Botanic Gardens

There are two things I  LOVE, love, LOVE to photograph.  Breathtaking romantic portraits and moments that happen once and give me goose bumps.  First looks make both these things happen and are there fore my favorite thing.  NOW, they are not for everyone.  In fact most of my brides and grooms are quite traditional and opt to see each other for the first time when her Daddy gives her away.  For my brides that are a bit modern and don’t feel married to tradition it is an opportunity like no other.  Complete privacy when she is unveiled as a bride and time to talk, hug, kiss and be excited with no prying eyes (except my lens.)  Eugenia and Michael choose to see each other behind the Rose Garden at the Botanic Garden on a less traveled path for some intimacy.  I just glowed, almost as much as Micheal, when they embraced and cheesed it up at each other.  What happened after was ample time to play in the gardens, photograph the families and bridal party as well time at the Fort Worth Modern.  The Modern is truly a treat to photograph at, how can it not be?  Surrounded by world class architecture and modern works of art… is definitely my cup of tea.  It is also a one of a kind shoot as ONLY couples having their wedding reception are allowed to take photos in the galleries.  Come back by tomorrow to see their highlights slide show as well as their details and reception blog!

Eugenia Michael Fort Worth Modern Art Museum Botanic Gardens Wedding Dayna Tooley Tracy Autem Purple Army 0062 Eugenia & Michael {Married Part 1   Preperation & Ceremony} Fort Worth Modern Art Museum & Botanic Gardens

Eugenia and Michael are a very special couple.  They both serve our country in the US Army and met while stationed abroad.  This month they were finally married which means soon they will be able to be stationed together and no longer stationed states away from each other.  For their wedding they selected Fort Worth since no matter what their families would have to travel and Eugenia would need to plan some where other than she was stationed.  This difficult task was made much easier by the help of Dayna Tooley, event planner and coordinator, who helped with every detail.  On the day of the wedding we met up at The Embassy Suites in down town Fort Worth for preparations.  Eugenia is one lucky girl with a whole beauty team in her family.  Her Mother did her hair and her sister helped with make up for her and most of the bridesmaids.  Definitely an easy team to trust!

Once the gown was on we headed over to the Fort Worth Botanical Garden for the couples first look and ceremony.  Tomorrow I will be sharing their first moments together on the wedding day as well as some of the fabulous portraits we were able to take with all the time this allows us.  They were married in the Rose Garden, Eugenia pictured something outside and flowering for her wedding and this is one of the first things they selected.  The reception was more Michael’s vision, the Fort Worth Modern. More of their fun, dance filled party later this week!  The weather could not have been more perfect and the clouds rolled in just moments before the ceremony making the light so perfect.  I adored their traditional broom jumping, fist pumping celebration as they walked out of the wedding and the sweet moment with Michael’s Grandfather as he welcomed Eugenia to the family.

If you loved Lindsey & Jason’s vintage engagement session yesterday then you will definitely fall in love with today’s feature on Pretty Little Weddings.  Their wedding was a nod to old Hollywood glamor with feather and pear details and vintage inspired attire at Piazza in the Village.  Thanks so much to the Pretty Little Weddings editors for featuring my work and the unique do it your self details that Lindsey & Jason created.
