Sarah & Derek – Destination Wedding at Lake TahoeTahoe, Nevada

Sarah & Derek were married at a private residence on Lake Tahoe.  This spectacular location had amazing views, lake front access and the perfect little green to say I do!  This rustic elegant wedding was so beautiful!  Sarah and her Mom, Ima Jean, did an amazing job pulling together every single details for this intimate affair.  This couple knew they wanted to keep it small and it was so sweet because just their closest family was in attendance.  Sarah prepared upstairs while Derek got ready downstairs – with just a staircase between them I had to make sure they stayed in their places!  Sarah’s airy skirt and gorgeous detailed bodice was beautiful on here and her cascading curls and unique headpiece made the look!  Derek was dapper in winter suiting with textured layers and colors.  During the ceremony, officiated by Sarah’s sister in law, everyone was smiling – including me!  Tears were totally shed by this lady behind the camera as they vowed to love one another – and all of Sarah’s animals and even Derek’s ducks!  These two are so perfectly suited for each other – it just warms my heart they found one another.  Over an intimate dinner they danced with each other and their parents as the sun set.

Taylor & Tyler – Wedding Reception at City Club Fort WorthTexas

Taylor & Tyler’s wedding reception was beautiful in pinks and naturals at The City Club of Fort Worth!  The ballroom there always sparkles and there is something else I love about this venue – it is always a GREAT PARTY!  The atmosphere is just perfect for dancing all night, an amazing band and lots of fun!  Before we got to into the evening we snuck away for some night time photos not he balcony overlooking downtown Fort Worth.  I loved the TCU Purple lights on the buildings.  As the night went on these two danced, found themselves on the stage a few times and had a great time celebrating with their friends.  We had so much fun celebrating with you two – I can’t wait to see all the future holds!

 

Thank you to the wedding vendors who executed Taylor’s vision and made her day so fun!

Bethany & Tyler – Wedding Reception at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, Texas

This wedding reception is one I will likely never forget.  At the end of the night I told Tyler that he is one of the coolest and most fun groom’s I have ever worked with.  Tyler and Bethany both are a joy to be around and they made the best of their 4 hour reception.  I am pretty sure they danced, hugged, talked and laughed with at least every guest they had.  From the moment they walked in the tone was set for a killer night – as the doors opened and the band announced the Mr & Mrs and played “All I do is Win”  these two entered the reception arms in the air and tore up the dance floor before their first dance had even begun.  Their entrance was epic and it didn’t stop there.  Reception’s are about more than the couple – they are about all the invited guest and loved ones.  During this party I loved watching the parents interact with one another and their children.  We caught Tyler hugging Bethany’s parents, chatting up his Dad and brother and being a little crazy on the stage with the band.  Bethany sang with the band from the dance floor, had fun dancing beside her husband and stole lots of kisses from him all night.

To top all of that – Bethany and Tyler are my 4th couple in a group of friends I have been so lucky to photograph.  Having 3 of my past couples dancing along side me as I captured this night was priceless.  Building relationships with my couples and seeing them time and again at other friends weddings is such a huge reward.  I’m looking forward to sharing the dance floor with all 8 of them next year at another one!

I love the party – after a day full of emotion and excitement it all comes down to a big celebration!  This party was pretty phenomenal – with gorgeous floral from Branching Out Events and a killer band brought in from Atlanta, Jessie’s Girls, it was top of the charts!  Leigh and Evan were inseparable all night – dancing close, laughing and visiting with their friends and family.  Not sure there are even words for how much fun we all had!  Just browse on and you will know that this is a night no one will forget!

Caitlin – Bridal Portraits at The Crescent HotelDallas, Texas

Hardest part of my job hands down is sitting on images that I can’t share.  Now that wedding season is coming to a close be prepared for an influx of beautiful bridal portraits!  Caitlin’s bridal session was at The Crescent Hotel, a Rosewood Property, in Dallas.  Her sleek and stunning gown with lace detailing, illusion mid-drift and neckline are the perfect mixture of alluring and elegant.  The clean lines and greenery of the Crescen’ts outdoor spaces played well with the subtle organic nature of her gown and the indoor spaces added some drama.  Caitlin’s look was pulled together with some help of some amazing vendors:

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!

Colleen & Frank – Wedding in Lewisville and Reception at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, Texas

Tracy Autem 2015

Colleen & Frank have been dating for 2 years.  These two met and quickly fell in love. Their quirky and brainy personalities are such a perfect match and you can really see how they complete each other.  The love to travel, their dogs and enjoy spending time together caring for their family and friends.  Throughout their wedding day I could see the strong passion they have for others and placing people before themselves.  They are kind and full of love for each other too.  🙂

 

For their wedding we started the day at Colleen’s childhood home in Lewisville before their wedding at St Phillip’s Catholic Church – where she attended as a child and teen.  They exchanged gifts before the wedding and Frank’s awesome Dr. Who cufflinks were so fun and perfectly him!  Frank gave Colleen a jewelry box (and some jewelry of course) but what caught me was his instructions and help so that she would know how to open the box just right.  During the ceremony  there were lots of smiles and laughs and it was all sealed with a kiss – poor Frank was left with a little reminder of that kiss but Colleen lovingly wiped the lipstick from his face before the were pronounced man and wife.

 

After the wedding ceremony we headed to the Fort Worth Stockyards for some fun romantic photos of the couple and bridesmaids and groomsmen.  The rustic nature area (above) is so pretty and perfect for some images of the two alone before some more fun pics in the stockyards station.  We got there right as the cows were walking the streets for their daily cattle drive and had to jump into the road for some pics with the historic signage.

 

At the Depot a beautiful and lush floral filled room awaited the couple for their party.  The night was filled with great toasts, sweet dances, fun, laughter and some delicious bites!  It was such a fun night and I was so happy to be with them.  Thank you for trusting us to be part of your day and I am so excited for all the future holds for you.

Charissa & Damon – Wedding Ceremony & Reception at City Club Fort Worth

Lightly Photography 2016

Charissa & Damon had a beautiful wedding at City Club of Fort Worth and I am so excited to finally share!  These two met over 6 years ago and through their courtship they have enjoyed lots of fun, sporting events and growing together as a team.  Now they are on to life’s next adventure – as husband and wife!

We met up with this adorable couple at City Club where they spent their day from getting ready, the ceremony and the reception.  Charissa and her girls were glammed by the Beauty and the Blush hair and makeup team.  Charissa looked stunning with her classic undo and clean lined ball gown dress.  I was completely smitten with the bodice and the ribbon detailing on the bottom.  It reminded me of a 50’s starlet on the red carpet!  Damon and his guys hung out and helped him keep calm leading up to the ceremony.

After their ceremony we slipped out onto the balcony for some fun night time shots with the city lights behind them before spending the rest of the night on the dance floor!  Damon is all smiles when he has his arms wrapped around his wife and it was so sweet watching them together.  We had such a great time celebrating with them!

This day was made perfect with a fabulous vendor team:

Megan & Dylan – Wedding Reception at The Modern Art MuseumFort Worth, Texas

Lightly Photography 2016

The Modern Art Museum of For tWorth is always a fave spot of mine – the venue has the most gorgeous architecture and being photographed in front of world class art is kind of amazing.  With an exhibit taking up the downstairs of the museum Philip, the museum guru, took me to a few spots I don’t usually get to visit including this fun lit piece above that was made for a romantic silhouette shot!

The grand hall was stunning with the grey’s of the museum against the silver and plum purples of the reception design by Tami Winn Events.  Lighting by It’s your night entertainment brought depth to the space.  To really escalate the bar spaces Tami Winn brought in hedge walls and bar facades.  So pretty!

Megan & Dylan entered the grand hall via the cat walk above their reception and welcomed guests before sitting down to dinner.  After cake and some mingling we moved the party to the cafe where the oval custom dance floor became center stage.  During the first dance Megan’s Daddy some how unplugged all the lighting systems but these two kept going and we kept photographing – it was definitely one of those funny moments that will forever be a wedding day story.  Megan & Dylan partied, danced, tossed bouquets & garter’s and savored every moment of their wedding reception!

I could not make all the beautiful images without the help of a fabulous vendor team, thanks to these guys for making my job easy!

Megan & Dylan – Getting Ready & Wedding CeremonyOmni Hotel & Robert Carr Chapel at TCU

Lightly Photography 2016

This day was full of all the feels – I mean look at this image that started our day!  As we arrived Megan was getting ready to read her note from Dylan and open her gift.  As she sat down and started to read the tears poured and it was precious in every way.  You all know how I feel about the feels – I am one happy photographer.  🙂

As the ladies dressed and the guys toasted and finished their final details we captured the fun, the emotions and the nerves leading up to the first look (see the post dedicated to that!  yes, it was so good it needed it’s own.)  Megan’s attire pretty much is one of my favorite looks ever – from her louboutin’s to her sparkly backless dress with it’s fun fluffy skirt.  Megan lovingly refers to her dress as Fluffy – every gown needs a special name!  Ready to go the couple and their bridesmaids and groomsmen set off on a bus to the Robert Carr Chapel at TCU Campus to get married!

Thank you to the vendors that made this day so beautiful:
