Katie – Bridal Portraits at Dallas ArboretumDallas, TX

Tracy Autem 2015

This amazing and lovely lady is married!  One week ago today I watched her walk the aisle and say I do to her lovely now husband, Jason!  Their day was pretty magical and I will be sharing images from it soon enough but first – THIS!  Look at how radiant and happy she is!  Katie just exudes joy, happiness and laughter.  I think it would be hard to hold a conversation with her where a smile did take over your face.  She is infectious!  Her bridal session at the Dallas Arboretum was just awesome – I loved her dress and veil – they were made to make photographers happy. 🙂  Her sweet and simple white bouquet and poised undo brought all the attention to her.  Really, isn’t she lovely?  Congrats on ONE week of marriage Katie!

Jillian Bridal Portraits at Arlington HallDallas, Texas

Tracy Autem 2015

Jillian’s dress with an illusion plunging neckline in lace was gorgeous!  She found her gown at Bridal Boutique of Lewisville and her floral is from Events by Oliver.  Jill’s family owns Mitas Hill Vineyard where her wedding was last weekend but for her bridals we selected Arlington Hall.  It is a perfect location to mirror the classic elegant feeling of a vineyard in a very southern style.  I loved her organic and bright bridal bouquet.  Can’t wait to share her wedding images next week!

Lauren – Bridal Portraits at Arlington HallDallas, TX

Tracy Autem 2015

Lauren was just stunning in her delicate beaded overlay gown.  It was so unique and completely fits her personality and style.  The day Lauren found her dress at Saks Fifth Avenue in NYC she was just going to look and check out a trunk show of a designer she loved, it was love at first sight with this dress though so she committed to it and I’m so glad she did.  Her undone garden bouquet by The Southern Table added to the light airy feel of Lauren’s look.  We photographed this session just days before her wedding since she lives in New York.  Totally loved being with her and Doug for their day.

Caroline – Bridal Portraits at the Historic 512Fort Worth, TX (formerly historic YWCA)

Tracy Autem 2015

Caroline is married and off in Hawaii celebrating her marriage to Taylor.  She truly looked stunning on her wedding day – like a Hollywood Starlet.  Her gown just is the epitome of classic, I don’t believe anyone will ever be able to pin point the year of her wedding.  Her gown embodied the classic feelings of people like Grace Kelly and the  mantilla veil (borrowed from her sister) was the perfect accent.  Caroline truly looked like a modern day princess.  Bouquet is by Tami Winn Events.

 

My favorite part of her bridals though was a reveal of her look to Dad, Eric.  Often Daddy’s show up at bridal portraits and I always want to capture them seeing their daughters and make it special.  I had Eric wait outside then brought  him in for the big reveal.  It was magical.  When Eric walked her down the aisle Saturday and Taylor saw her for the first time it was just as perfect as he totally cried at the sight of his bride.  Congrats Caroline!  Enjoy the honeymoon!

Laura – Bridal Portraits at Botanic Gardens of Fort Worth

Tracy Autem 2015

I am so ready for warm temperatures and sunny days with all this rain!  I am thinking back to this gorgeous girl’s bridal portraits last summer at The Botanic Gardens of Fort Worth.  I loved her fluffy fun gown by Stardust Celebrations.  The corset detailed  top was sexy yet elegant and was perfectly accented with a belt.  Laura’s look was pulled together by the Styling Stewardess and BA Beauty.  Look at that classic pale bouquet with subtle colors by Lush Couture!  Cheers to brighter days ahead!

Tracy Autem 2015

The Adolphus Hotel is one of the most beautiful and historic locations in Downtown Dallas.  Every aspect of this venue from the French Room Restaurant to their unique lobby areas are just rich with color, texture and history.  Abbey’s full ballgown style dress fit in beautifully with the classic environment.  Thanks so much for allowing us to capture your day!

Katie – Bridal Portraits at The Milestone in Denton

Milestone Bridal Portrait clean white bright classic bride portrait photo dog puppy tami winn tracy autem katie-8

Katie was a gorgeous bride and I just loved every moment I spent with her.  Genuine, sweet and kind with a happy heart describes this lovely lady so well.  Let me add, gorgeous!  She is radiant on the inside and out.  Her wedding day was super special but first a few weeks prior we headed up to Denton to the Milestone for her bridal portraits.  The simple and classic clean lines of the venue were the perfect backdrop for her session.  I loved her vera wang gown with delicate jeweled belt.  Katie carried an all white bouquet by Tami Winn – it is just winter white perfection!  Her little pup, Winston, joined in for pictures and he was a perfect gentleman.  He wore a rocking little gold bow tie so that he was properly dressed for the occasion.

 

I wish I could rewind so I could spend more time with you Katie!  Congrats and check back to see more of this fabulous bride and her groom, Charlie, later this week.

Casey – Bridal Portraits at the Fort Worth Omni Hotel

Tracy Autem 2015

Casey is my favorite right now, I know, all my brides are my favorite for different reasons but Casey killed it and I just can’t help but let her win that title for today.  These photos have been burning a hole in my mind as I waited for her wedding day.  It is time and I can breathe as I get to share her stunning photos.  Casey is a classic beauty – I don’t know if she knows just how gorgeous she is.  Her new hubby knows, Andrew was all tears the moment she stepped into the chapel. 🙂  Her wedding day attire definitely kicked it up a notch with a fabulously textured gown, simple veil with a gorgeous edge treatment and her bouquet…….the bouquet!   I die.  Her bouquet is an amazing take on the cascade look that has come back recently but in a very modern and clean way with ALL white orchids.  Swooning times a million over the bouquet.  I will stop, and just let you look.  Can’t wait to share this wedding!
