Omni Hotel First United Methodist Fort Worth Wedding Photos Tracy Autem 0012 Reagan & Tanner {Married Part 1   Preperations, First Look & Ceremony} Omni Hotel & First United Methodist in downtown Fort Worth

I am SO excited to share this wedding.  Unfortunately it is my last to post for awhile as I am getting super close (less than 7 weeks) to welcoming our new baby boy which means maternity leave from weddings.  I will be DYING to shoot a wedding come December 31st when I will return from leave.  This couple was the most perfect note to end my weddings for the year though.  Reagan was a bridesmaid in Stacey & Brent’s wedding last year and when she got engaged I was one of the first people she contacted.  In fact she was originally planning an October wedding but with me being due then she moved it to August so that I could be her photographer.  Love my girls that want me there so bad they plan around me.  icon smile Reagan & Tanner {Married Part 1   Preperations, First Look & Ceremony} Omni Hotel & First United Methodist in downtown Fort Worth

Reagan started her day with preparations at the Omni Hotel.  I loved all the cute robes she bought for her bridesmaids and her dress was to die for gorgeous and could not have been more perfect for her.  Tanner met up with us at First United Methodist in downtown Fort Worth were Reagan walked down the aisle to him for their first look.  At a church like FUMC a first look is ideal as there is no center aisle.  I love seeing a grooms reaction to his bride and some churches with side aisles do not offer a great view of the bride as she enters.  The first look is a perfect solution as he waited for her at the front of the aisle.  I adored that he held his arms out for her and she melted into him.  Perfection.  Later this week I will be sharing their romantic portraits and reception with their details.

Page 104 Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailing

I do have a true love story with brides and wedding dresses.  One of the main reasons I am passionate about shooting weddings is that I love the fairy tale, the excitement and the uniqueness that surrounds each wedding gown and the bride that chooses it.  When the owners of Brides of North Texas Magazine approached me about this dreamy vintage shoot I was on board from the  moment I saw the inspiration board.  It was completely up my alley as I love all things that are soft, natural, vintage and romantic.  It stood out to me as different as well from other gown editorials as we were going to throw into the mix a good looking young man, some designer suiting, a table-scape, detail shots and a boudoir look!  I was completely taken a back as well as I thought, little old me, shoot a gown editorial?  I knew I could do it but I also think that a degree of humbleness and wanting to improve is essential to any artists growth.  This shoot humbled me, wowed me and when I finally held the magazine in my hands I was in awe of what I created.  I actually looked at my staff and said I can’t believe these are my photos!  I am so in love with each image and the Brides of North Texas staff so blessed me with this opportunity.  I can’t wait for the projects I will shoot with them in the future!  Later this Fall I will share some more images from the shoot that are not in the magazine as well as a few behind the scenes moments.Page 106 Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailingPage 108 Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailingPage 110 Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailingPage 112 Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailingPage 114 Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailingPage 116 Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailingPage 118 Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailingPage 120 Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailingPage 122 Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailingPage 124 Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailing

Fort Worth Club Details Pink Purple flowers uplighting creme de la creme cakes enchanted florist randall stout tray autem 720x900 Lauren & Randy {Married} Fort Worth Club Wedding

Lauren & Randy were married recently at The Fort Worth Club.  It was a beautiful day and I was so happy to be able to capture it for them.  Some of my favorite moments were between the parents and my couples as Randy squeezed his Moma on the dance floor or the joy on Lauren’s Mom face as she slipped into her gown or her Daddy seeing her for the first time.  Favorite hands down though would have to be the tears Randy cried as his bride walked down the aisle, the ones I never expect are the ones that cry.  So loved their day and the fabulous team of vendors the pulled together including:
