Caitlin & Jordan – First Look & Portraits at The Mansion on Turtle CreekDallas, Texas

I can’t even – I mean – ahhhh.  This first look is beyond perfect.  We met up at The Mansion on Turtle Creek where we had Caitlin & Jordan see each other on the balcony of the hotel.  Gorgeous fall day and a couple that looks this good and just melts into each other.  There could not have been a better way to end my 2016 Weddings!  When Jordan turned both of them were jaw dropping excited to see each other.  She sweetly showed off her dress and they embraced and snuggled up together.  These photos are why I love first looks – all the emotion and pretty rolled into one amazing moment!  After we used photographed their family, bridal party and romantic portraits at this classic Rosewood Hotel property.  I love the architecture, the green scapes and even the sidewalk there – I don’t think you can select a more iconic Dallas hotel location for photography.  Enjoy all the pretty and as always thanks to the vendors who made it all possible:

Kristen & Curtis – Mansion at Turtle Creek Weddinga Brunch wedding in Dallas, Tx

Tracy Autem 2015

Small intimate weddings are amazing.  I believe they are the perfect answer to for someone who wants little fuss but a beautiful day.  By cutting down your guests to just the essentials you can have the wedding of your dreams.  For Kristen & Curtis they had just that.  On a sunny Friday I spent a few hours with these two as they became a family.  Kristen rocked a fabulous blush pink frock that said wedding dress in all the right ways but was flawless with her skin and blonde hair.  Curtis was so paper in his blue suit.  Nerves were high and they were ready to see one another, we did their first look inside the Mansion at Turtle Creek above the restaurant on the stair case.  When Curtis turned to see her – aww – it was pretty sweet.  Then we played outside and took family photos before heading up to the terrace for a ceremony officiated by Marty with Love Notes.  During the ceremony little Kamdyn made sure she was part, dancing in the aisle, continuing her flower girl duties by throwing more petals and by joining herself to her new Step-Dad as he gave her a precious necklace and the officiant explained the significance of her Mommy’s new ring.

 

Thank you so much for allowing me to share in your intimate affair.  It was perfection!

Amanda – Bridal Portraits at The Mansion at Turtle Creek

Tracy Autem 2014

Amanda & John were married before Thanksgiving so today I can finally break these out and share them with the world!  I LOVE this dramatic first image, it is actually the photo Amanda chose for display at her wedding.  I love its simplicity yet great use of light.  The Mansion at Turtle Creek has become a client favorite for bridal portraits this year and I am never disappointed when they select it.  The balance between the outdoor images and the drama and classic feelings inside were perfectly paired with this bride’s classic style.  Amanda has said since she was a little girl gloves would be a must at her wedding and she didn’t change her mind.  I think they are perfect with her gown and her personality.  Congrats Amanda and very soon your wedding photos will be making an appearance!
