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!!!)

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!

Jillian & Brady – Engagement Portraits at Mitas Hill Vineyard in McKinney

Tracy Autem 2015

So excited to share this amazing session!  Why?  Well, it rocked.  Perfect day, perfect light, amazing NEW location and well, a super cute couple!!!  These two have been together LONGER than my husband and I.  Yep, I have almost 10 years with my hubby (and 3 kids) and these two are over a decade and just about to say I do!  That is some major practice in patience right there.  Well, starting out in high school, through college, law school and  more these two are completely in love.  Watching Brady just smile and love on her was kinda beautiful.  On top of all their awesomeness the vineyards was gorgeous.  Jill & Brady will be getting married here next year and it is owned by her Grandfather.  If you are looking for a vineyard location for a wedding in the Dallas Fort Worth area this one can not be beat!

Caelan & Jake – Engagement Session at the Stockyards and Fort Worth Park

Fort worth stockyards engagement session portrait photos park nature grass trees water tracy autem photography caelan jake-7This lovely lady is  my niece and I am kind of excited that she is getting married next July!  Although I will be at her wedding my fabulous associate Amanda McCollum with Lightly Photography will be photographing her day so that I can just be family!  Now I might help a little with some of the photos but I honestly just can’t wait to celebrate with these two.  It was actually the first time I have ever met Jake and I instantly fell in love with him and his fun personality.  I can see why Caelan fell for him.  These two met while attending college and living in the same building.  During one of their first meeting Jake jokingly got down on one knee and asked Caelan to be his bride.  Little did he know that years later he would be doing it for real in front of her parents and grandparents on a cruise ship.

 

Jake is a musician and is a member of a country band so we had to get some western vibes going for their photo shoot.  After a show in Austin and before a music festival in North Texas we met up in Fort Worth at the Stockyards for their engagement session.  After playing there we headed to one of my favorite nature spots with a beautiful pond and open fields.

 

Congrats and I can’t wait for your San Antonio wedding next year!

Tiffany & Justin – Engagements with a 47′ Ford Coupe

Engagement Session Grassy Field Classic Car Vintage Car Red Ford Tracy Autem Photography-0008

Tiffany and Justin are getting married this summer at Bass Hall in Fort Worth on the stage!  Yeah, that’s right, you can have your wedding on the stage at Bass Hall.  Pretty cool right?  I think the unique and beautiful backdrop of the stage perfectly fits this couple.  Justin, a entrepreneur in construction also plays bass guitar in a band and travels for gigs when not at home in Fort Worth.  Tiffany is a young and fabulous professional with serious confidence and sass.  This couple compliments one another well and just fit together so nicely.  Tiffany knew she wanted to incorporate a cool old car for their mini engagement shoot and she found the perfect one.  This fabulous 1947 Ford Coupe in a fabulous burgundy red was pretty sweet!  Thanks Chris for letting us use your fabulous car.

See you two in August on the stage!

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!

BreAnne – Bridal Portraits at Bass Hall and Private Ranch with Horses

Bass Hall Bridal Portrait BB Tami Winn Tracy Autem Sneak-7

 

Today BreAnne is getting married so I can reveal this super fun bridal session I photographed for her earlier this month. Although I am not a part of her wedding day I was so privileged to be asked to photograph a maxed out bridal session – 4 hours and 2 very different looks that just make me smile, grin and well honestly, a happy dance!  BreAnne is a dream to photograph and knows how to move and rock her fabulous Vera Wang gown.  Thanks to Tami Winn Events for sending this doll my way and for providing a gorgeous floral bouquet and headpiece.  At her families ranch we hit the pasture with their horse, Gray.  Mom and Dad came along for the ride and served as dress and horse wranglers.  We may have picked the windiest day in May for this photo shoot but we worked it and used to our advantage.  Gray was a good sport but then after we let him loose we had one of those God moments where he and his fellow horses were all lined up eating grass RIGHT behind BreAnne.  In addition we photographed inside Bass Hall for some luxe glamour to give a little balance.  With some dramatic light and the naturally amazing backdrop of the theater it was perfection.  Thanks BB and your family for including me in your wedding journey!

Krista – Bridal Portraits at the Historic YWCA in Fort Worth & Trinity Park

Photo by Tracy Autem of Lightly Photography 2013 http://lightlyphoto.comKrista was married in November so I think it is about time I get to sharing her bridal portraits!  Her wedding was at the T&P Station in Fort Worth so the classic vintage look of the YWCA was the perfect compliment.  They have fabulous big windows that provide some pretty sweet light for portraits.  To add in a little natural flair we also visited Trinity Park.

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!
