Ashlea & Mark – Engagement Portraits in ChicagoDestination Photo Shoot

Chicago was an amazing city to explore with Ashlea and Mark.  Ashlea is a Texas girl at heart but life and schooling took her North to Chicago where she met Mark!  Now these two have made a home for themselves outside the city they love and they invited me to experience a day with them!  These two love being home – doing some yoga, working out in their home gym and enjoying some snuggling and cooking side by side.  Even though they may live in one of the coolest cities in the US their home is their sanctuary so we had to kick of the photo shoot there.  Ashlea and Mark showed off some Yoga poses and moves before playing in their yard and just getting cozy on the sofa.  As we headed into the city we stopped off at United Center – the home of the Chicago Bulls for some sports inspired photos.  Mark loves sports but most of all he loves Ashlea – he proposed to her over the holidays with an engagement ring tied to a new pair of kicks she had been eyeing.  She was so excited about the shoes she almost missed the ring!  After some playful photos it was time to get glam at the Chicago Theater.  Ashlea has a background in dance and is a dance therapist so she is amazing at knowing her body and I loved that she threw some dance inspired poses into our session.  From the alley’s of Chicago to the beach at sunset we laughed the entire day.  These two know how to live, love and laugh together well!  At sunset we caught the lights of the city behind them and the beauty of Lake Michigan.  I loved Chicago and getting to know this fabulous couple and can’t wait for their 2018 wedding here in Texas!

Congrats Ashlea & Mark and can’t wait to see you here in Fort Worth!

LOVED photographing these two at Robert Carr Chapel after their wedding.  They really look so timeless and romantic and it was amazing how we squeezed so much yumminess into such a short amount of time after the ceremony.  The light by the windows was to die for – look at all the pretty (including the gorgeous Sarah!)  Outside we played with the collums, the building, sunset light and their wedding party!  Off to the real party at the City Club of Fort Worth!

Clare & Blaine – Wedding Portraits at The Four Seasons in Dallas / Las Collinas

Four Seasons Dallas Wedding reception ballroom tami winn events tracy autem photography clare blaine-45

This crowd was FUN!  Can you tell?  I loved this couple and their wild and crazy friends.  After a sweet ceremony at Clare’s home church in Colleyville we headed to the Four Seasons in Las Collinas for their wedding reception.  Before kicking off the party though we had to take portraits.  We took SOOO many that I loved at this wedding that I am giving them their very own blog post!

Check out Blaine and his men.  They are a dapper group and were all ready to cut up for the camera.  They looked well put together in their gray suiting and fun socks!  Blaine definitely owned his look and had a good time with his friends.

Claire and her ladies look completely classic with a kick of energy in their coral and bright summer  bouquets.  Their pale grey silver gowns with sheer necklines looked light and soft along side the yards of toulle of the brides gown.  She rocked a completely chic top knot bun that looked flawless all night long.

Oh – and the kids.  Look at those minis!  Even they were enjoying their wedding day roles.

If that isn’t enough awesomeness, there are some killer romantic portraits of the bride and groom too!  Clare and Blaine have playful spirits so some picking up, walking and some silly faces were a must! The golf course at this Dallas venue is the perfect wedding photography location as you can see from these stunning portraits.

Amy & Michael – 12 years of marriage! A steamy and fun Anniversary shoot in Fort Worth.

Engagement Anniversary Photos Tall Grass Fort Worth Tracy AutemLoved this the moment I took it. ahhhhhhh.

Amy and Michael have been married 12 years!  They have been together since high school and I must say I just love them!  I can bet they were just as loving and sweet back walking the halls in their teen age years but now they have years of experience and some beautiful children.  I think it is so important to take time out and remember that even when you are a Mom & Dad that you are still a couple, and in their case a super hot one!  Their engagement photos consisted of some overalls I was told and were in no way what Amy would pick today.  See, she is a tad picky about photos now because she is a local children and family photographer.  I understand her feelings and was glad I could help her document this time in her life with her husband.  Here are some favorites from their Fort Worth photography session.

Ashley & Matt – A Dallas Wedding Reception at City Club

Dallas Wedding Photographer Tracy Autem City Club Downtown Red Sculpture

Fun shot outside the downtown Dallas high rise where they had the reception at City Club.

After Ashley and Matt tied the knot at Maple Manor in Dallas we switched up locations completely from garden to downtown high rise at City Club Dallas where they had their reception.  I always love working at City Club as their staff, food and service are just phenomenal.  They really saved the day actually as just days before the wedding Ashley realized she had told City Club Sunday’s date for her reception instead of Saturday!  All was taken care of though, the reception  moved to Saturday and it was gorgeous.  The night was jam packed with fun from Matt & one of his groomsmen singing “Gold Digger” by Kanye to the crowd, Oklahoma University Pride, and non stop dancing.  I know that everyone had such a good time and we did too!  Here are some photos from their Dallas Wedding Reception!
