Ragan & Alex – Engagement Portraits in Sundance Square & Nature ParkFort Worth, Texas

Ragan & Alex met at TCU and their love story has continued on for over 4 years and headed towards the altar next May!  I can’t wait for their Fort Worth Zoo wedding – it is going to be amazing!  These two are totally cute together and I love their smiles and how they just fit perfectly together no matter how I had them pose.  Ragan is extra cute and has a super fashion sense – if you love any of her clothes from this session head on over to her boutique of Camp Bowie – Hulla B’Lu!  For their session we did a little bit nature, a little bit city!  It was the perfect vibe and I had a great time getting to know them and chat about their upcoming wedding – most excited, not going to lie – for some animal sightings during the wedding.

Congrats you two!

Bethany & Tyler – Wedding First Look and Wedding Party PortraitsTrinity Park, Fort Worth

Look at how cute and excited these two were to finally see each other!  Bethany knew she wanted a location that was green and lush for her first sight with Tyler.  We selected Trinity Park for just that reason and it was gorgeous!  Right before he turned I asked him what he thought her dress might look like and he may have been a little off on his expectations but he was not disappointed when he turned to see Bethany.  After some photos of the two of them alone they were joined by their bridesmaids and groomsmen for wedding party photos.

Jacqueline & Matt – Engagement Portraits in a Natural ParkFort Worth, Texas

This session just makes my cheeks hurt – I am smiling so much and haven’t really stopped since I photographed these two lovebirds!  Jacqueline and Matt met in college in Tulsa and were a perfect match.  Together these two just melt into one another and I love the way Matt looks at his bride to be, he knows he is a lucky guy!  These two are doing the long distance dance right now as Jacqueline travels allot from her home locally to Houston to be with Matt.  My prayer for them is that she soon finds that perfect job down in Houston so she can be close to her guy!  I adored the long formal frock that Jacqueline paired with this natural location – it made the two of them the stars of the photos!  The light we had was perfect for their afternoon session – look at that amazing light!  Recent rains had the waterfall full of water and these brave souls barred their feet and walked through it to reach my perfect spots.  So thankful for adventures and love filled clients!  Can’t wait for their Fall wedding at Robert Carr Chapel and The Ashton Depot!

Annie and Josh – Engagement Session in Fort WorthNature & Fairmount District

I am CRAZY excited for this wedding.  In just 4 short weeks these two are saying I do and kicking off a new life together at MOPAC here in Fort Worth.  If you are a bride of mine this sweet lady will look familiar – she is my amazing associate photographer Annie Norvell!  I love her sweetness, silliness and passion for photography, Christ and life.  I have always thought she was pretty amazing from the first time I photographed her – for her High School Senior Portraits!  But, when she met Josh this last year I watched her grow deeper in love with Jesus, focus her life and fall head over heels for a Man that fulfilled her.  It has truly been the best to see her mature along side him AND I have really loved getting to know Josh.  From Facebook messages and texts to plan a surprise proposal (see it HERE) and being at his side as he nervously awaited the moment he would ask Annie to marry him – Joshua has impressed me with his honesty, fun spirt and desire to serve God and the woman he believes was set apart for him.

 

This wedding will be a little extra special for me – Annie is like my baby sister – SO, Josh – welcome to the family!  I can’t wait for you to marry one of my favorite people in the world because I know she is for sure your favorite.

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!

Courtney & Miles – Engagement Portraits at Dallas Arboretum & White Rock Lake

Tracy Autem 2015

This session just makes me giggle and grin.  Courtney & Miles met in Dallas and currently live there with their puppy dog – Finley.  I had the privilege of taking these two to the Dallas Arboretum and being their tour guide as we took some stunning photos.  I can’t believe they have lived in the area so long and had never been!  It was the perfect backdrop through – a bit of nature and a touch of elegance to go with their night on the town outfit.  Courtney’s dress had the most fabulous sleeves with a  peek a boo checkered design.  Courtney works at an ad agency and Miles practices corporate law.  Although their lives may have them in Dallas today she is a Fort Worth girl through and through so their wedding will be at The Fort Worth Club next summer.  Finley – their Husky – joined us for a few photos at White Rock Lake (thanks to Courtney’s Mom for playing dog wrangler!)  We found this beautiful pocket of red and yellow autumn leaves and it was just amazing!  I love these guys and I am so looking forward to their wedding and working the fab team of Sarabeth Events!

Alesia & Gee – Dallas Engagement Session at the Winspear & Klyde Warren Park

Tracy Autem 2015

Alesia and Gee are just too adorable.  I love their fun personalities, how completely in love they are and well, everything!  From the moment they walked into my studio for our first meeting I was just taken with how much Gee loves Alesia.  She wants to make sure that Alesia has everything that matters to her, all her wedding dreams and more.  It was just refreshing to see a couple that really is serving one another, putting the other before themselves.  For their session we had to do the Winspear Opera house, they loved the reflecting pool there and so do I, it was awesome!  Alesia was totally channeling Audrey Hepburn in her classic black dress and pixie haircut and Gee rocked her fuchsia top and suiting.  After the arts district we headed to Klyde Warren Park for something a little more relaxed and so that Max, their puppy, could join the fun.  Klyde Warren is a total oasis in the middle of the city and such a fun spot to do photos.  The light was awesome, their love was awesome, it was amazing!  Can’t wait to see these two say I Do in April next year at The Milestone.

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!

Meredith & Michael – Engagement Portraits in Dallas Highland Park

dallas highland park engagement session photos garden water spring engaged tracy autem photogrpahy meredith michael-14

Loved this fun and casual session in Highland Park a few weeks ago!  Everything was so lush and green from all the recent rains and these two just added to it with their sweet love shining through.  The way he looks at her, the way her face lights up when he is close – makes me pretty happy.

These two met through some mutual friends and slowly they grew into a couple.  Meredith didn’t take much notice of Michael at first – as he put it he was rocking out to some rad 90’s jams when they first met.  I am sure that just made her have to know more about this cool guy!  I love them, their sweet spirits and I can’t wait for their wedding this coming winter, it is going to be FUN!

More pics?  Of course!  Check out their slideshow:

Ashley – Bridal Portraits at Dallas Petroleum Club and Downtown Park

Tracy Autem 2015

Ashley is such a fun bride and her bridal’s were no exception.  I could have hung out with this pretty girl and let her prance for me all day in this gorgeous gown.  I loved the light and airy feeling of her drew and how stunning it looked with her cathedral length veil.  Ashley and Derek were married at the Ritz Carlton last week so stay tuned for their wedding.  We danced all night until our feet hurt!  Congrats sweetie!
