Aurie & Joe – 1 Year Anniversary PortraitFort Worth, Texas

Tracy Autem 2015

When Aurie reached out to me a few weeks ago about a 1 year anniversary photo shoot I had no idea all the fun I was getting into.  You guys – she surprised him with this photo shoot!  It was like a first look on a wedding day but 1 year later!  Aurie left Joe clues on what to wear, where to go and when to be there and then we prompted him to come outside where he saw his beautiful wife of one year in her wedding gown!  Why?  Well, one a wedding dress is so pretty that really all girls need to get some bonus wear’s out of it!  Two: sometimes wedding days aren’t as smooth as planned and it can mean that less photos are captured than really wanted.  That was the case for Aurie and Joe – their wedding was out of state and she decided to fix her one wedding day regret with a photo session.  I feel so lucky she asked me to be a part!

Joe and Aurie are so adorably sweet together.  After some romantic wedding day style portraits we headed for a picnic complete with their top tier wedding cakes – thawed out and ready to eat!  It was super special.

Happy Anniversary and here is to many years of surprises, fun and laughter!  You two cracked me up and just gave me all the good feels.

Kim and John – Engagement Session at Billy Bob’s Texas, Fort Worth Stockyards and Downtown Fort Worth

Tracy Autem Photography 2014 http://tracyautem.com

Kim & John met at work and have been romancing for almost 6 years.  They both have a love for country music and relaxing and enjoying life.  Billy Bob’s was the perfect spot to kick off their engagement session as they spend many weekend nights attending shows at the venue.  These two just seemed at home in each others arms, cold beers in hand.  I love that they thought to include a spot that is symbolic of this stage of their lives!  After some fun honky tonk photos we headed out to a rustic nature area.  These two will be getting married at Classic Oaks Ranch, one of my favorite outdoor venues in the Fort Worth area.  We went from country to city with their second look in downtown Fort Worth.  The flat iron replica building with its classic city fire escapes and architecture were a fun connection to John’s family roots in New York.  We played until the sun set and were able to get a really different angle of the courthouse then typically photographed – by setting up all the way down main street at the convention center.

Heather and Tim – Engagement Portraits at Fort Worth Botanic Gardens & Downtown

Tracy Autem 2015 Heather & Tim are engaged and getting married next year in January!  Adored getting to know them more as we laughed and had lots of talks about leg popping during this photo shoot.  Heather and I joked that she will now forever now how to pose for selfies and such.  Tim is a sweetheart and super excited about the wedding process.  It is so refreshing to see a groom that wants all the things!  The big wedding, engagement photos and even and engagement party.  I love this guy!  We actually photographed their engagement party last month at Times Ten Cellar in Fort Worth.  It was a beautiful evening and so fun!  Looking forward to spending more time with this couple at their City Club Wedding next year!

Lara and Derek – Fort Worth Engagement Portraits

Tracy Autem Photography 2014 http://tracyautem.com

I am so in love with this couple and their Fort Worth engagement session!  I have been shooting almost all of my sessions in Dallas lately so it was awesome to be back over in Cowtown at some of my very favorite locations last week.  These two will be tying the knot in March and since I am expecting  my little one right around their wedding date I co-shot this sessions with Amanda from my associate team with Lightly Photography.  I wanted them to be completely at ease with her and get to know her as well as myself since depending on baby I may not be able to photograph their wedding myself.  It was so much fun to shoot along side Amanda, I could totally do that more often!  Lara & Derek met while at school at Hardin Simmons and from this first picture above you can see these two are totally into each other and that their relationship is full of laughter.  Mia, their pup, came along for their session and she was perfectly matched with little bows for their city photos.  I think she may have wanted the entire session to be about her.  They will be having their wedding at Piazza in the Village, it’s classic beauty but casual feel totally fits with their personalities and it sounds like they will be having quite the party!

Kate & Josh – Wedding Reception at Fort Worth Club

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

Kate and Josh with their “squiggly” tree above is a fave of mine form their day.  Driving into Trinity park for some photos of the couple alone Josh was excited about some of the trees so of course we found him a perfectly squiggly tree for a few photos.  I love the way Josh’s classic white shirt, bow tie and suspenders compliments Kate’s lace gown.  So classic yet relaxed for these more informal portraits.  After a few more stops including a urban park downtown and the historic post office it was time for this reception.  Glenn Roush had the floor full and the sun was still out!  It stayed packed all night as this couple and their family and friends celebrated.  We had some traditional dances, some guests who played with LED uprights and some late night snacks.  It was so much fun!

Cristina & Eric – Fort Worth Engagement Photos in Trinity Park & Downtown

Ahhhhhh, Ok, SO I am in LOVE with the above picture.  Cristina is all about the big city, loves New York and Eric is all about down home and relaxed.  I feel this photo so fuses those two looks and I adore it.  The rest of their Fort Worth engagement session was pretty spectacular too as we ran around town to some of their favorite hang outs and Trinity Park.  To put a bit of a bonus spin on their shoot we also took photos in front of Cooks Children’s Hospital (where Cristina works as a RN) with Eric’s patrol car.  It was a fun nod at who they are in their professional lives and how they mesh as a couple.  Loved their out of the box idea!  Can’t wait for their wedding next April!

Rebecca & Jason – Engagement Photos at Botanic Gardens and Sundance Square Fort Worth

Rebecca and Jason are a match in every way.  Jason’s sense of humor definitely caught Rebecca’s attention and I can see why.  Together these two are not stop laughs and smiles.  The ability to laugh together is necessary in a marriage and since they have that in spades I think they could overcome a lot of hard times and really enjoy the good.  For their session we strolled the Botanic Gardens of Fort Worth before hitting up downtown near Sundance Square, the site of their first date.  Jason kept her busy from dinner at La Cantina Laredo, ice cream and a comedy show that evening and I don’t think they have ever stopped.  I can’t wait for their fall wedding ceremony and reception at City Club of Fort Worth!

Here are some more faves of mine from their Fort Worth Engagement Session Highlights reel:

Lindsay & Adam {Engaged} Fort Worth Botanic Gardens and Downtown

Lindsay and Adam are getting married the coming November and last week we finally had a chance to hang out for their engagement session.  I hadn’t met Adam and he was a hoot to get to know.  Within in seconds of starting the session Lindsay asked for him to tell her a story, he said he didn’t have one BUT the rest of the session he had stories that made her laugh and that made me happy.  This man knows how to make his soon to be wife smile, and squish into him and generally glowing.  These two are definitely in love and I am so glad they both had the guts to go out on that blind date.  It was most definitely fate.

Meghan & James {Engaged} Fort Worth engagement photos at Trinity Park, Van Zandt Cottage & Down town

Meghan & James were brave souls this last weekend and they joined me outside in 40 and below weather for their engagement session.  You would never know their teeth were chattering looking at this photos because James did an awesome job keeping his love warm.  In exchange for the cold we were supplied with some awesome light though and we just moved, moved, moved to keep warm and to get back in the car as quickly as possible for heater breaks!  Their wedding is in just a few weeks so I was glad to finally meet James.  He completely won me over.  He is definitely the strong, silent type but he melts for Meghan.  Best part of the session hands down was when I asked him what he was into.  He replied “Meghan.”  Best answer ever!  See you both soon!

Reagan & Tanner {Engaged} Fort Worth Stockyards, Field and Historic Post Office

It is finally spring and that means sessions galore from bridals to engagements and I was SO happy to kick off the spring with Reagan and Tanner last week.  Usually sessions have 2 outfits but Reagan was a bit indecisive so we added some extra time and an additional look so she could have it all and I am so glad we did.  The stockyards was the perfect place to kick off the session and get to know Tanner (and let them loosen up in front of the camera.)  We also checked out some fields near down town and shot by the old post office off of Lancaster.  We ended with a few photos at the train station because these two are travelers and dream big.  They are hoping to move to Vancouver after the wedding so we had to get a few pics of them holding a city guide to signify the next big step in their lives.

Reagan and Tanner are getting married in August and she was a bridesmaid in one of my weddings last year.  I just love working with friends of clients and better yet, Stacey, my past bride will be in her wedding!
