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!

Chelsea – Bridal Portraits at Chandor Gardens

Tracy Autem 2015

As I am finishing up this gorgeous ladies wedding right now I had to show off her beautiful spring bridals at Chandor Gardens in Weatherford.  The classic and timeless lines and greenery of the garden complimented her lace overlay gown with endless layers from De Ma Fille Bridal.  Her gown’s unique silhouette made me so happy!  Chelsea reminds me of Snow White with her stunning skin, rich dark hear and especially with that fun bright lip from Lip Service Makeup.  Bouquet by Tami Winn Events.

Ashley – Bridal Portraits at Dallas Petroleum Club and Downtown Park

Tracy Autem 2015

Ashley is such a fun bride and her bridal’s were no exception.  I could have hung out with this pretty girl and let her prance for me all day in this gorgeous gown.  I loved the light and airy feeling of her drew and how stunning it looked with her cathedral length veil.  Ashley and Derek were married at the Ritz Carlton last week so stay tuned for their wedding.  We danced all night until our feet hurt!  Congrats sweetie!

Kristen-Bridal Portraits at Fort Worth Club

fort worth club bridal portrait bride ballgown tami winn flowers-1

 

Ah, the dress!  No really, the dress.  Kristen is a beautiful girl, sweet and funny and so exciting to spend time with AND she has some pretty immaculate taste don’t you think?  This gown just makes me fall over it is so pretty.  I loved the classic ball gown styling all grown up with layers of delicate lace, a little sparkle and a belt that just pushed it over the edge.  As I am putting the finishing touches on Kristen & Preston’s wedding images today I just had to share her bridals we took back in the winter during one of our icy weeks.  After some Fort Worth Club photos we headed out to a wooded area for a few outdoor shots.  We spent about 8 minutes outside before this girl froze but we got to showcase a fun fur and the winter landscape.  Her luscious bouquet was designed and created by Tami Winn Events.  The gown was purchased at Stanley Korshak and hair and make up services were provided by Angie Williams.

Brooke – Bridal Portrait at Rosewood Mansion at Turtle Creek

Bridal Portraits Mansion at Turtle Creek Tracy Autem Photography-0004

Brooke was a stunning bride for her December wedding and she rocked her gorgeous dress from Stardust Celebrations at her bridal portraits at The Mansion at Turtle Creek earlier last year.  Her lace gown was perfectly accented with the delicately trimmed veil.  Her hair and makeup team, Tracy Melton, stayed on site during her shoot and we did a quick hair change from down to up.  It is so hard to decide on a hair style for the big day and Brooke was able to see both before selecting the half up half down look for her wedding.  The flowers from Bella Flora complimented the lace details and made her look complete.  Brooke & Justin’s wedding was a super fun one to end the year in 2014.  If you missed it check out her wedding blogs:  Ceremony & Reception at Piazza in the Village.

Amanda – Bridal Portraits at The Mansion at Turtle Creek

Tracy Autem 2014

Amanda & John were married before Thanksgiving so today I can finally break these out and share them with the world!  I LOVE this dramatic first image, it is actually the photo Amanda chose for display at her wedding.  I love its simplicity yet great use of light.  The Mansion at Turtle Creek has become a client favorite for bridal portraits this year and I am never disappointed when they select it.  The balance between the outdoor images and the drama and classic feelings inside were perfectly paired with this bride’s classic style.  Amanda has said since she was a little girl gloves would be a must at her wedding and she didn’t change her mind.  I think they are perfect with her gown and her personality.  Congrats Amanda and very soon your wedding photos will be making an appearance!
