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!

Jessica & Anthony – Wedding Cermony & ReceptionNuvo Room, Dallas

Jessica & Anthony’s wedding ceremony and reception at Nuvo Room in Dallas was so perfect for them, fun and elegant with a touch of modern.  They put so much work into their wedding day.  That gorgeous altar backdrop flower wall was totally hand made by these two and friends/family.  It was gorgeous!  Like I wanted to take it home!  During the ceremony there was so much emotion from a sweet forehead kiss from Daddy giving away his princess to loving glances and smirky smiles.  All the feels were had by all.

 

When party time hit it was full steam ahead with laughter, fun and dancing!  Anthony and Jessica rarely strayed from each others side – there is a magnetism to them that is truly beautiful to watch.  I think their friends said it best as they toasted them – the touched on their love for each other, how genuinely nice and caring this couple is and how they are so suited for each other.  Best part though was the wish the maid of honor ended her toast with – Lots of Sex! I have never heard that one before but must say it’s a good wish on a marriage!

 

Thanks Jessica and Anthony for inviting me into our lives and letting me be a part of your day.  I am lucky you choose me, it was beyond perfect and inspiring to get to know you.  You are two love with your full selves – not just each other – but all around you.  You are both so very lucky.

-Tracy

Katie & Jason – Wedding Reception at The Omni HotelFort Worth, Texas

Lightly Photography 2016

Sometimes you can’t wait to party – Katie & Jason didn’t wait one moment.  As they were pronounced husband and wife and strolled out of St. Patricks Cathedral the reception greeted them at the door in the form of a fun Mariachi band.  As all the guests filled out of the church these two and their band led the guests on an incredible march a few blocks over to the Omni Hotel for their reception.  It was a great sign for the party to come and set the tone of a really special evening.

In the omni these two took to the floor and shared a sweet first dance.  What I love most about watching Katie & Jason are all the smiles, silly faces and just joy that radiates from them when they are together.  I really can’t remember a time all day when these newlyweds weren’t happy happy happy!  After some sweet words in the toasts and great dances with Mom’s and Dad’s it was time to DANCE!  The Jordan Kahn Music Company was awesome and this couple kicked it up a notch with the Georgia Bulldog Mascot making a special appearance.  The bulldog flew in all the way from Georgia just to shake his tail at Katie & Jason’s wedding!

This day was a fun one and one that I will not forget!  Love you guys, you families and I am so happy that I got to share your wedding with you!

Shout out to all the vendors we got to laugh, dance and have fun with at this one:

Katie & Jason – Wedding Ceremony at St. Patricks Cathedralwith preparations at Omni Fort Worth

Lightly Photography 2016

This wedding had all the feels – laughter, tears and some super funny faces (see above!)  Katie and Jason had a pretty perfect day in my books and I was blessed to document it for them.  We kicked off their Fort Worth wedding at The Omni Hotel for some preparations and a first look (check out their first look blog post here!).  Mom and sister were at her side as she slipped into her gorgeous gown before seeing Daddy for the first time – He wrapped his arms around her in a huge hug and she totally got teary.  🙂

After some fun photos on the rooftop garden we headed over to St Patricks Cathedral so these two could finally get married!  Their ceremony was full of sweet moments and I had the best seat in the house!  Churches all have rules about where we can stand and what we can or can not photograph but at St Patricks I have the best view – I get to see their faces!  While the audience sees their backs I get all the stolen glances, quirky looks and smiles.  Hidden behind the altar I really get to see how much these two love one another.

And just like that they were married!  Check back for  their awesome reception that actually started the moment they walked outside the church!?!  It was legendary!

Shout out to the entire wedding vendor team that pulled off a fantastic day for Jason & Katie:

Allie and Kane – Engagement Photos at Mitas Vineyard in McKinney

Engagement Session Mitas Hill Vineyard Tracy Autem Photography-0013

I just don’t know where to start – this session made me so happy, when I came home my face was hurting from smiling so much.  Allie and Kane are just the sweetest and kindest couple.  Their Momma’s raised them right and raised them together – these two have know each other pretty much as long as they can remember.  Kane was always good friends with Allie’s twin sister so as they grew up and he pursued Allie everyone was pleasantly surprised.  They are perfect opposites, complimenting one another in every single way.  Also they push one another – I love to see that!  During the session Kane was egging Allie on singing “Anything you can do I can do better, I can do anything better than you.”  It was hilarious but man it worked!  That push is what helped me get this AMAZING photo above.  I suggested we find a way into the creek and Kane’s determination infected Allie and she bravely scaled a incline to get this image.

 

Allie picked out some adorable outfits – loved her butterfly skirt!  The Mitas Hill Vineyard was a beautiful backdrop for their session and was so diverse in spots to photograph.  To end the session they both threw on  their college t-shirts for some silly casual photos.

This session was fun in every way and when it ended I hated to say goodbye, I just wanted to hang out with them more!  I am looking so forward to my next chance to spend time with Allie & Kane at their wedding next year!  Congrats you two!

Kristy & Jared – Wedding Reception at Texas Discovery Gardens, Dallas

Sometimes it rains, and when it does you should never miss the chance to make it perfect.  Most brides don’t dream of rainy wedding days, Kristy certainly didn’t.  She got her wish for clear skies during her outdoor ceremony at Texas Discovery Gardens but as the night went on it poured.  As they were departing for the evening we snagged this hot photo above showing off the energy of their wedding night and I love it!  As their ceremony ended the sunset was under way and soon we had darkness so we quickly too advantage of twilight for some romantic images of the couple.  Entering the reception their night was filled with cake smashing, Dad’s dancing, daughters that are adorable, hilarious toasts and some beautiful people that I was so privileged to experience their day with.  Congrats you two!  I have loved being a part of your wedding!

Tracy Clegg – {Photographer Headshots}

It is always such a pleasure to photograph another photographer.  It is so hard for us to step in front of the camera and I am glad that Tracy trusted me to capture her. She is a budding photographer and needed photos of herself to include on her website and marketing pieces.  It was great to get to know you and chat with you about your future in photography.  Best of luck and let me know if I can help you in any way!
