Jacqueline – Bridal Portraits at Dallas Meyerson Symphony CenterDallas, Texas

I have been dying to share this bridal portrait.  Jacqueline is so super sweet,  I just love spending time with her and her entire wedding day look was just stunning.  Jacqueline found her dress at Stanley Korshak and it was designed by Isabelle Armstrong.  I love the bold lace details, edging and fitted bodice.  It is light and airy and ever so intricate.  Her textured bouquet with anemone’s and pops of pink by Tami Winn brought in a bit of depth to her look.  I always love photographing at the Meyerson – the light bright and airy feel of this venue is a favorite and it’s modern clean lines were the perfect backdrop to Jacqueline’s dress.  Makeup and hair by Quynh Nguyen Yip.

Christine & Andrew – Engagement Photos at Dallas Arboretum & White Rock LakeDallas, Texas

Christine and Andrew are getting married TODAY!  That’s right – in just a few hours Andrew will be marrying Christine at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas.  We waited to photograph their engagement session until last week so I am excited to share some of their photos on their big day!

These two were introduced through mutual friends a few years ago and they hit it off!  They have built a great life in Dallas together with their Golden Doodle Layla.  I was so excited to spend time with them and I can’t wait to see how beautiful Christine looks today!  Happy Wedding day you two!



Amy & Bryce – Wedding Reception at Union StationDallas, Texas

Amy & Bryce’s wedding reception at Union Station was stunning with a color palette of light blush pinks, whites, creams, golds and pops of rich blues.  It was elegant and regal and oh so perfect for this couple!  The moment Amy walked into see her reception space during her private reveal her jaw dropped – her vision truly came to life thanks to Chloe with Stylish Soiree!  Not only was this reception gorgeous but it was action packed and full of FUN!  As DJ Glenn Roush welcomed the guests and challenged them that this might be the best wedding they have ever attended – he was right!  From special dances to some pretty special dance moves this evening was exciting and perfect filled with foam glow sticks and lots of laughter.  Thank you so much Amy & Bryce for including us in your special day.  Congrats on your wedding and we pray that your life is full, happy and marriage strong!

Mary Katherine & Wes – Engagement Portrats at Dallas Arboretum & White Rock LakeDallas, Texas

Mary Katherine and Wes met at Texas Christian University in business class.  Wes caught her eye as he was giving a presentation and now, 7 years later, they are getting married this December.  After college these two and their dog Cash moved to Dallas.  We visited the Dallas Arboretum and the Lake for their engagement session.  They spend lots of time with their pup at White Rock Lake – Cash LOVES the lake!  He was such  good boy for us during their photo shoot.  In January Wesley popped the question on Mary Katherine’s birthday and I can’t wait to celebrate with them on New Years Eve Weekend!


Leigh – Bridal Portrait at The Dallas ArboretumDallas, Texas

Leigh is a gorgeous bride!  Her lace gown with a plunging back and neckline was amazing!  I am loving these new illusion styles that expose yet cover and make dresses so sensual yet sophisticated.  Leigh is a sweet girl and I loved hanging out with her and her Mom at the bridal session at The Dallas Arboretum.  Her veil added some drama and when paired with the light wind we had some perfect moments.  Her bouquet was loose and lush in whites and greens and the simplicity of the color palette complemented her overall look.

Britny – Bridal Portraits at Meyerson Symphony CenterDallas, Texas

Britny is a stunner – like I am super jealous of her flawless skin and gorgeous eyes!  Britny and Aman had a 2 day wedding event with a traditional Indian wedding followed by a more contemporary ceremony the next day.  Britny looked like a princess both days though and I love her Lace cap sleeved gown from Bliss Bridal with cathedral length veil.  Her hair, pulled to one side, just made her look feel like old hollywood and oh so glamourous.  Her bright and colorful bouquet had so much texture and reflected the fun and elegant vibe that her wedding had.  Tami Winn always knocks it out of the park on flowers!  For her bridals we selected the Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas for its light bright and airy architecture with clean and modern lines.  Although a contemporary space it is elegant and classic and one of my very favorite places to photograph brides!  Even on a rainy day this place is heaven inside for light!

Caitlin & Jordan – Wedding Reception at the Dallas Petroleum ClubDallas, Texas

Caitlin & Jordan’s Dallas Petroleum Club wedding reception was fun filled and beautiful!  Caitlin knows what she likes and I could feel her aesthetic throughout her ballroom decor.  Her florist, Bryan Long, brought her vision to life with dripping flowers from the chandeliers and large scale topiaries mixed with lower lush pieces.  Along with candlelight, seating vignettes and lighting the space was warm, inviting and elegant.  From the first dance to the last dance these two were so fun to capture smile, laugh and dance with their family and friends.  Above for their private last dance I pulled them off the dance floor and into the  middle of their ballroom so we could not only capture their extreme cuteness but the feeling of the space they created.

Caitlin & Jordan – I love you guys.  Thanks for being so gracious, kind and friendly to me and my team.  You made us feel important and that connection led to lots of happy tears and smiles behind my camera.  Thanks for being the last of 2016 and setting the tone so well going into next year.  I know God has great things for you both!

Caitlin & Jordan – Wedding Ceremony at the Sky LobbyDallas, Texas

The Sky Lobby at Chase Tower in Dallas, Texas was the most perfect backdrop for this modern couple’s wedding ceremony.  Before heading upstairs to say I do we captured some romantic images in front of the venue.  Caitlin & Jordan’s day had so many beautiful locations that I have had to separate their wedding blogs into 4 posts so I could give each spot their own spotlight!  The Sky lobby has stunning views of Dallas and even after the sunset the room was big and spacious and elegant with the glimmer of downtown lights in the distance.  During their ceremony I loved watching their smiles, their parents and of course all the perfect little moments that made everyone laugh.  Such a special time!

Jennifer & Stephen – Engagement Portraits at Winspear Opera House & White Rock LakeDallas, Texas

Tracy Autem 2015

I am on the edge of my seat in anticipation for this wedding next Spring.  Stephen and Jennifer and super fun together and I had a blast photographing them last week.  These two met in high school but started dating just a few years ago.  Now they find themselves living in Dallas and getting married in San Antonio next year.  These two together are pretty much the best.  I love Stephen’s silly faces and how he knows exactly how to make Jennifer smile.  We explored the Winspear Opera House area near downtown Dallas and Jen rocked a statement cobalt blue dress that made her eyes and hair pop!  After a little city we went for a total opposite vibe near White Rock Lake.  With their sweet golden pup in towe we snuggled up in the grass and had some fun with gorgeous sunset light.  Congrats Jennifer & Stephen!  So excited for you two!

Jessica & Anthony – Getting Ready & Wedding First LookDallas Wedding


Jessica & Anthony have that head over heels, passionate, full of laughter and lots of kisses kind of love that girls dream of.  These two are seriously so much fun to photograph and it was so special to share their wedding day with them!  We met up at their hotel in Dallas for some getting ready before their first look.  It was HOT outside and these two were hot together too – from the moment Anthony turned around to see his bride he was glowing.  I can’t blame him – Jessica was gorgeous in her pink textured gown with a corset styled bodice.  Anthony looked so GQ too in his blue tailored suit.  We headed out to brave the temperatures at Addison Circle Park for some romantic portraits and bridesmaid and groomsmen photos.  Huge props to this entire bridal party for being up for anything, trusting me and the result is beautiful!  I’m swooning over here!
