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!

Allison & Allen – New York City Engagement SessionDestination Photos

Tracy Autem 2015

I am so excited to finally share this lovely session I was oh so lucky to get to travel to New York City to photograph.  I love NYC – so much history, gorgeous architecture, public spaces and really great clients!  Allison and Allen’s story begins in New York City but next April they will be moving on to the next phase of their life in Fort Worth as they get married at Marty Leonard Chapel and The Modern.  Allison’s family may be from Texas but her life has taken her from school in California to the big apple for work.  There she met Allen and these two have had a fabulous 2 years of dating (TODAY!!! – Happy 2 Year Anniversary you guys!!!)  In February while vacationing in Utah Allen asked Allison to marry him and this kind brainy man is now marrying this athletic and sweet marathon runner.

Allison and Allen have a precious little pup, Andi, a corgi who joined us in Central Park for some photos. Love the fur babes!  We explored Bethesda Terrace and fountain as well as taking a stroll with Andi along the Mall.  After taking on the greener side of the city we hoped a subway to Brooklyn where we took in magnificent skyline views from Brooklyn Bridge Park.  Thank you two for allowing me to be in your life up in NYC and I can’t wait to see you in April!  It can simply not get her fast enough!

Shelby & Whilden – Engagement Session in Trinity Park & Botanic GardensFort Worth, Texas

Tracy Autem 2015

Shelby and Whilden are getting married next spring here in Fort Worth and it is going to be such a beautiful reception at the Ashton Depot!  These two met in college at Texas Tech 3 years ago and their life has now brought them to Midland where they are working and living.  Leading up to the wedding here in Fort Worth where Shelby is from they are putting down roots in Midland – looking for a home and enjoying life with their 2 pups.  For their engagement session their doggies joined us for some photos at Trinity Park (thanks to Mom who dog wrangled!)  They were super cute and so sweet.  After some dog pics we headed to the Botanic Gardens and strolled around the Fuller Garden.  I loved Shelby’s blue bright dress, she has the most gorgeous smile.  Can’t wait for this wedding!

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.

Courtney & Miles – Engagement Portraits at Dallas Arboretum & White Rock Lake

Tracy Autem 2015

This session just makes me giggle and grin.  Courtney & Miles met in Dallas and currently live there with their puppy dog – Finley.  I had the privilege of taking these two to the Dallas Arboretum and being their tour guide as we took some stunning photos.  I can’t believe they have lived in the area so long and had never been!  It was the perfect backdrop through – a bit of nature and a touch of elegance to go with their night on the town outfit.  Courtney’s dress had the most fabulous sleeves with a  peek a boo checkered design.  Courtney works at an ad agency and Miles practices corporate law.  Although their lives may have them in Dallas today she is a Fort Worth girl through and through so their wedding will be at The Fort Worth Club next summer.  Finley – their Husky – joined us for a few photos at White Rock Lake (thanks to Courtney’s Mom for playing dog wrangler!)  We found this beautiful pocket of red and yellow autumn leaves and it was just amazing!  I love these guys and I am so looking forward to their wedding and working the fab team of Sarabeth Events!

Lara and Derek – Fort Worth Engagement Portraits

Tracy Autem Photography 2014 http://tracyautem.com

I am so in love with this couple and their Fort Worth engagement session!  I have been shooting almost all of my sessions in Dallas lately so it was awesome to be back over in Cowtown at some of my very favorite locations last week.  These two will be tying the knot in March and since I am expecting  my little one right around their wedding date I co-shot this sessions with Amanda from my associate team with Lightly Photography.  I wanted them to be completely at ease with her and get to know her as well as myself since depending on baby I may not be able to photograph their wedding myself.  It was so much fun to shoot along side Amanda, I could totally do that more often!  Lara & Derek met while at school at Hardin Simmons and from this first picture above you can see these two are totally into each other and that their relationship is full of laughter.  Mia, their pup, came along for their session and she was perfectly matched with little bows for their city photos.  I think she may have wanted the entire session to be about her.  They will be having their wedding at Piazza in the Village, it’s classic beauty but casual feel totally fits with their personalities and it sounds like they will be having quite the party!

Casey & William – Engagement Portraits at White Rock Lake in Dallas

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

Casey and William are getting married next June in Dallas at Christ the King and the Dallas Arboertum.  These Fort Worth TCU alumni met in college and started dated after they graduated.  Now they are tithing the knot and I just can’t wait for their wedding.  We met up last week on a beautiful day at White Rock Lake where all of their session took place.  It is simply beautiful out there and the leaves are just barely starting to turn and fall to the ground – so excited it finally feels like Fall!  Their pup, Oscar, joined in on some photos as well.  I had a great time getting to know the two of you better and the wedding next year is sure to be fabulous!

Kelly and Gerry – Engagement at Fort Worth Botanic Gardens and Trinity Park

 


Tracy Autem 2014

 

Kelly & Gerry will be getting married next March at University Christian and TCU Champion’s club.  I can’t wait for this wedding!  Kelly is one of a fabulous group of young ladies that I have been so lucky to follow on their wedding journeys.  It is one of my favorite things to work with a group of friends!  Kelly and Gerry met at TCU while studying to become teachers.  Gerry was pursuing Spanish and Kelly Math.  These teacher pair is well matched and I laughed a ton with them at their session.  Gerry wanted to do some “FUN” poses so I gave him a few minutes to play and from picking her up, twirling her around and giving her a piggy back ride and I loved the result.  It is the best feeling when at the end of a session I can totally see great things for my couples future.  Gerry is easy going, silly and has a very fun personality while Kelly compliments him with her planning and is a little quieter – this means they are so well balanced that they will have lots of fun, laughter and adventures in their future because Kelly will plan things to happy and Gerry will throw in a dose of spontaneity.  See you two in the spring!

Abby & Jeff – Wedding at Robert Carr Chapel

Tracy Autem Photography 2014 http://tracyautem.comAbby & Jeff are married!  They wed on 4.5.2014 with their ceremony at Robert Carr Chapel and reception following at The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.  We met up the couple before for getting ready photos.  Abby and her ladies were pampered at The Omni and had their hair and makeup done by Beauty and the Blush.  They had fun listening to tunes, singing along, telling stories and laughing at some bachelorette party gifts.  The boys were just as lively and Jeff and his manly men donned their vests (with no shirts) for some silly group photos.  I love some guys with a sense of humor!  For this couple’s first look they saw one another as bride and groom for the first time in the chapel at TCU.  Their pup Bentley joined them for a few “family” pics before they said their I Do’s.  This couple is incredibly sweet and are just totally fun to work with.  I had a great day with them and can’t wait to share their reception at one of my favorite reception spaces, The Modern!

Thanks to all the vendors who helped make their wedding day dreams come true.

Abby & Jeff – Engagement Portraits at Chandor Garden and Fall Trees

Abby and Jeff are pretty dang amazing.  I love them.  I knew from the moment I met this adorable couple that being a part of their wedding was going to be spectacular.  After some missteps and rescheduling due to weather and other issues we finally got together last week at Chandor Gardens in Weatherford and one of my favorite fields near by.  The gardens there are beautiful and so overlooked by many people, they are intimate and usually empty.  Bentley, their pup, joined us for a few photos and was wrangled by Abby’s Mom (Thanks Momma!)  Then we headed out to one of my favorite spots just down the road from the gardens – this field of trees is fall perfection right now with all the changing colors in the leaves.  It was pretty perfect and was rounded out with this gorgeous vintage sofa rented from Gold Dust Vintage.  Thanks guys and I can’t wait to see you both in April for your wedding at Robert Carr & The Modern!
