Abbey & Andrew – Engagement Session at the StockyardsFort Worth, Texas

Abbey & Andrew started their story in Fort Worth with a chance meeting.  It is Abbey’s hometown and Andrew lived in Fort Worth for work.  Although they only knew each other briefly they kept in touch after Andrew moved on to work in California.  Sometimes though things are just meant to be and as life happened and things changed in Abbey’s life she got a call for a job in California too and moved out West where she later reconnected with Andrew.  Second time was a charm but I have to say that I think they were meant to be after spending an hour with them in front of my camera.  These two are positively perfect together and just full of smiles, laughter and sweetness.  I loved that they were spending the Thanksgiving holiday together – even before they were married!  I was super happy that I got these two to sneak away from the family though for some photos!  And can I just say WOW to Abbey’s gorgeous outfit choice – so on trend and fun with beautiful coloring that just made her look stunning (don’t worry Andrew – you looked great to but can you blame me?) Can’t wait for your wedding next year!

Laura & David – Wedding Portraits at Classic Oaks RanchRomantics in Mansfield, Texas

Lightly Photography 2016

Laura & David are not just super beautiful people on the inside they are also pretty amazing to look at and photograph!  I mean look at these two!  If the sun had not been setting and I had unending perfect sunset light I  might have photographed them for a hour more.  Take a peek at their romantic couples portraits on the Classic Oaks Ranch property.  We scaled a cattle guard for some gorgeous photos and it was so worth it!  I love every part of Classic Oaks from the outdoor chapel, the barn and pastures.  Can’t wait to share this fun reception tomorrow!

 

Thank you to the wedding team that Laura & David selected and helped make this day so magical (and big shout out to David who helped with ALL the wedding planning!!!)

Laura & David – Wedding Ceremony at Classic Oaks Ranch

Lightly Photography 2016

I LOVE an emotional couple and Laura & David are like my dream clients – these two love each other and are not afraid to show it.  David is such a cutie – I mean – look at his reaction (above) as he watched his beautiful Laura walk down the aisle to him!  What more can you ask for in a man?  Well, that was just the start.  This loving man had sweet words and nice gestures all day for his beloved – it made me cry SO many times!!!  During the ceremony the vows they had for each other were heartfelt and true and during the ceremony David was SO excited to be marrying his bride he couldn’t stop talking.  He wasn’t afraid to speak up and say how beautiful she was, lucky he was and in love with her he was.  Their ceremony had me crying, smiling and with goose bumps!  Laura was so thoughtful in all she did – from fun custom boots for her groom to perfect gifts for all the parents.  During the ceremony and every time she was near him, she was just glowing.

It was a pretty amazing day!

Emilee & Jeff – Wedding Ceremony at Marty Leonard ChapelFort Worth, Texas

Tracy Autem 2015

Emilee & Jeff’s black and white wedding was not just super pretty – it was full of emotional moments that made me get goose bumps and cry happy tears behind my camera.  After an sweet first look at the Omni hotel we headed to Marty Leonard Chapel for their wedding ceremony.  Emilee got her bridesmaids super fun black and white polka dot umbrella’s by Kate Spade so we had to use them for a photo – so cute!  After some photos of the bridesmaids and groomsmen outside the church it was time for their fall nighttime ceremony. The chapel has bright light during the day but at night it is moody and dimly lit and I think it feels very romantic.  During the ceremony I don’t think Jeff stopped smiling for an instant – I love his smile – so bright and contagious.  Even now I am smiling as I type thinking about his face.  🙂  After the I do’s we were able to capture some night time portraits showing off the architecture and space that makes the Marty Leonard Chapel so beautiful and unique.

Weddings are awesome but they are sure made better by a fab vendor team!  Thankfully Emilee had one great team:

Bethany & Tyler – Engagement Photos at Dallas Arboretum & White Rock LakeDallas, Texas

Tracy Autem 2015

Bethany & Tyler met in Dallas through mutual friends and they are already having BIG adventures together as they prepare for their June wedding next summer.  Bethany packed up her life here in Dallas and headed to North Carolina so that these two would not be apart while Tyler pursues his MBA.  I had such a great time getting to know Bethany & Tyler – they are super sweet and I can tell that this time in their life is so good for them.  While at school it is allowing them to have lots of quality time since Bethany is telecommuting to her job here in Texas.  I am so excited for all their future holds and their wedding next year.  Can’t wait!

Kyndall & Cole – Engagement Photos at Botanic Gardens at TCU CampusFort Worth, Texas Christian University

Tracy Autem 2015

Kyndall & Cole are getting married next summer at TCU!  Yep, ceremony at Robert Carr Chapel and the reception overlooking the stadium at the TCU Champion’s club!  Texas Christian University is a huge part of this couples story, it is where it began so it makes so much sense that they will be saying I do there too!  They met as freshman and were friends thorough out college.  Cole knows he was firmly place in the friend zone and he worked hard to get out of it and eventually Kyndall came around and fell hard for this sweet and loving man.  He is a little soft spoken but I think Kyndall’s bubbly and outgoing personality make them a perfect pairing.  So complimentary!  This past summer both of their families vacationed together in Hawaii where Cole proposed 0 so special!  I had so much fun hanging out with them and loved Kyndall’s deep purple lace dress and her adorable “game day” outfit for the football stadium.  So much fun!  Can’t wait for the wedding!  Rah Rah TCU!

Britny & Aman – Engagement Photos at White Rock Lake and Dallas Arboretum

Tracy Autem 2015

This wedding has me on the edge of my seat – September can’t get here fast enough so I can celebrate for 2 days with this amazing couple.  Britny is the sister of one of my past brides and I have loved her ever since.  When she called to say she was getting married I was over the moon.  She is funny, bright and just a joy to be with.  I can see why Aman chased after her.  Aman is just as fun and a complete gentleman.  He is in love and is such a genuine and kind person.  When we first got to talking Britny told me how when they were first talking they would do some fishing down at the pond so we incorporated a little bit of fishing into their session for a nod at their story.  I loved this beautiful and warm quilt that Brit brought along – we pretended it was cold and snuggled up since it was a 70 degree kind of December day!  For a taste of a more formal look we also visited the Dallas Arboretum.  I will see you both in Sept for a traditional Indian ceremony and a full fledged american celebration and wedding!  It is going to be awesome!

Caroline & Mitch – Wedding Reception at Ashton Depot

Tracy Autem 2015

These night time shots kill me!  Like, make me jump up and down I’m so happy for the opportunity to make the dark look beautiful!  I think almost all photographers love beautiful natural light but sometimes that just isn’t what your day has.  In the fall/winter in Texas with the early sunset time it is often dark when the ceremony ends.  We take that challenge and love to create some moody, romantic lit portraiture.  I love this series of images of Caroline & Mitch in the garden at the Ashton Depot and out front with the lights of Fort Worth behind them.  The depot is one of my favorite venues in Fort Worth – it is always beautiful and the service and food there is just perfect.  Caroline & Mitch’s guests enjoyed the entertainment – from a fun caricature artist to the fab band.  A sparkler send off and on to the Honeymoon!

Caroline & Mitch – Wedding Ceremony at Broadway Baptist Church

Tracy Autem 2015

Caroline & Mitch were adorable and I am thrilled to be sneaking in this amazing peek at their wedding before the Thanksgiving holiday.  Caroline looks like a Hollywood starlet and the beautiful deep fall colors and greenery at this wedding just had me swooning.  We met up with the girls for some preparations at the Sheraton in downtown Fort Worth before heading over to Broadway Baptist.  I love this church for its beautiful architecture and gorgeous getting ready room!  We had a perfect day so we did many of the bridal party and family portraits outside the church before the ceremony.  When it was finally time to walk the long aisle Caroline was all smiles and Mitch was so excited to see his beautiful bride.  My favorite part of their ceremony was the moments directly after – where I caught this great image above.  As they walked out of the chapel they were hugs, kisses, closeness and lots of chatting about their days.  Those first moments as man and wife are always a winner for me.  I get to be present for something that is so private and special.  Congrats you two!

SOOOO excited to share this session I did before Thanksgiving.  The leaves were really starting to change and I adore this couple!  They hired me with out a meeting so a few weeks ago we finally got together and hung out, got to know each other and went over their wedding – it is going to be a fun one!  Then before the holiday we ordered up some perfect weather for their White Rock Lake & Dallas Skyline engagements!  This two are both Aggies but didn’t  meet while attending college, after graduation both found themselves in Dallas, attending the same church!  I love when couples meet in their place of worship, it unites them in so many ways from the very start and sets such a solid foundations for their marriage.  Rachael is gorgeous and I loved the outfits she selected for their shoot.  She even braved the dock at the lake for a few photos even though the mass amounts of birds hanging around were a little freaky.  Colin is just a love, He was so sweet to her through out the session, his smiles and snuggles say it all about how he feels about his bride to be.

Can’t wait for their May wedding in Dallas!  Want more?  Than check out some more of my favorites from their engagement portraits:
