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!

Kristen & Preston – Wedding Reception at Fort Worth Club

Wedding Fort Worth Presbyterian Fort Worth Club Tami Winn Events Tracy Autem Photography-0046

While Kristen & Preston’s guests enjoyed cocktail hour we made the best of the last moments of light and took some lovely romantic images in Burnett Park.  After using up the last of that golden glow it was on to the party and BOY did we party!  I love a wedding where time speeds by, the dance floor is full and my heart is happy celebrating alongside my couples.  Their wedding was exactly like this.  We hardly ever left the dance floor one The Project kicked off the party.  My feet hurt and I am sure like everyone else at this wedding that didn’t matter because our hearts were full!

 

At the reception Kristen made sure every guest had something to do.  From dancing the night away to late night snacks and of course some fun party games!  Putt putt, corn hole and giant Jenga were available for party guests as well as a photo booth when they wanted to step away from the dance floor.  Every detail was thought of and lets not forget some awesome Koozie’s and coasters to commemorate this killer party.

 

All my readers know how much I love relationship so sometimes my favorite image from a wedding is an unexpected one.  From this wedding you will need to scroll down, quite  a ways to see it.  At the end of the night, during one of the last songs.  Kristen and her brother & sister were dancing together and I captured a moment amongst these siblings that made my heart happy.  As a Mom myself, this is exactly the kind of image I would die to have of my grown children one day.  It also shows what a great job her parents have done, that these 3 enjoy each other.  Well done Mom & Dad!

 

Congratulations to the bride and groom!  You two know how to party, how to love, and I know God will carry you through your lives with lots of fun and joy because of your attitudes.

Becca & Drew’s wedding is just months away and will be my first wedding of 2015 and I can’t wait!  This couple will be having a fabulous winter wonderland wedding at The Colonial Country Club and I know it is going to be gorgeous.  I love this classic and timeless taste that Becca has for both her wedding day decor and her own look.  Becca and Drew went for attire that will never go out of style for their engagement session at Chandor Gardens in Weatherford.  It is one of my all time favorite locations for sessions – always great light, fabulous greenery and makes for perfect photos!  These two met through mutual friends and I can tell they just click!  I will see you both so soon!

Yasmin and Scott – Engagements in Highland Park, Dallas

Tracy Autem 2014

Scott and Yasmin were a lucky couple a few weeks ago as after a big rain storm temps dropped and we did a very rare mid day session in July!  It was beyond perfect and I am so glad the weather was so kind to us as Scott had flown in that weekend so we could get together!  We met up in Dallas in Highland Park for a classic and timeless backdrop for their engagement photos.  We visited three parks and Lakeside pictured above was definitely my favorite!  Scott and Yasmin were easy in front of the camera, being playful, laughing and cuddling up together.  Scott says it helps that they live in different places, he just wanted to hold his beautiful bride to be since he hadn’t seen her in a few weeks.  Must say if absence makes the heart grow fonder AND makes for fabulous pictures I don’t have a problem with that!  Luckily though in a few weeks these two will be calling Houston home together and I know they can’t wait to be in the same zip code again!  Scott was a hoot joking and putting Yasmin at ease.  I loved this cream lace dress with see through back, so fun!  Their wedding next year at Fort Worth Club is going to be beyond fun with 2 ceremonies, one at TCU where the couple met and a Persian ceremony at the club.

Jordan & Jonathan – Engagement Photos in downtown Dallas and the Arboretum

Jordan & Jonathan are friends of one of my past couples so I was thrilled when they selected me to photograph their wedding.  For their engagement session we headed to Dallas where they live and he proposed.  Jonathan took Jordan to the Dallas Arboretum for one of their evening concerts and had planned to pop the question as soon as they arrived.  As they strolled the garden Jordan saw a spot that she thought would be so pretty at sunset so he decided they would come back later and then he would ask her to marry him.  As they strolled, had a drink and waited for the sunset Johnathan’s family went into panic mode as they thought he should have certainly had an answer by then.  Their worries were for nothing though as when he did finally ask she accepted.  I love this photo below in the spot where he proposed.  Can’t wait to share their wedding day with them next May.
