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:

Allison & Michael – Wedding Ceremony at The Orchard in Azle

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

Allison & Michael are married!  They had what was possibly the best case scenario ever for their October ranch wedding at The Orchard– perfect temps and beautiful skies!  I think every bride planning an outdoor wedding gets a little worried about what could happen that day but all the prayers paid off for this couple.  From arrival Allison was all jitters and just excited that it was FINALLY her day!  She was just beaming from the inside, I could literally see the joy all over her!  After dressing with her maids she did a sweet reveal with her Daddy and I loved it, his face was priceless and he saw his girl as a bride for the first time.  During the ceremony Michael got really choked up, tears were shed but more so were big smiles and lots of laughter from this couple.  It was a really fun ceremony to watch as their pastor interjected some hilarious comments!  It was a huge pleasure to spend the day with this couple and their family and friends.  Check back tomorrow for their reception blog!

Christina & Mason {Married} Marty Leonard Chapel, City Club Fort Worth & Omni Hotel

Jewett-Wedding-Marty-Leonard-Chapel-City-Club-Fort-Worth-Omni-Hotel-Tracy-Autem-Photography

On Valentines weekend Christina & Mason were married and it was an amazing first wedding of 2011 for me.  They are a couple with personality and that makes my job even more fun!  Christina and her brides maids prepared at the Omni Hotel and their suite was gorgeous.  Besides it being HUGE there was amazing light which made me one happy girl and a balcony with a view that was almost scary high.  Sarah Rizy was my second for the wedding and she stayed away from the edge, I was a tad more daring.  They had a night ceremony at Marty Leonard followed by a reception at City Club Fort Worth.  My friend, Randy Ro, provided entertainment while everyone danced and enjoyed the celebration.  At the end of the evening we followed the couple back to their hotel suite for some balcony photos and a little fun.  Every couple is SO unique and they have a definite side of silly so when I suggested some bed jumping they were all about it and got some BIG air (Sorry Omni Hotel, we promise, we broke nothing.)

It was truly an honor to be a part of their day.  The biggest compliment is when another photographer, like Christina, selects me to document their wedding.  Christina must have felt like a celebrity because between our cameras and her bridesmaids (several of them also are photographers or are hobbyists) she was a star.  Thank you Christina & Mason for trusting me, it was amazing.
