Caroline & Mitch – Wedding Reception at Ashton Depot

Tracy Autem 2015

These night time shots kill me!  Like, make me jump up and down I’m so happy for the opportunity to make the dark look beautiful!  I think almost all photographers love beautiful natural light but sometimes that just isn’t what your day has.  In the fall/winter in Texas with the early sunset time it is often dark when the ceremony ends.  We take that challenge and love to create some moody, romantic lit portraiture.  I love this series of images of Caroline & Mitch in the garden at the Ashton Depot and out front with the lights of Fort Worth behind them.  The depot is one of my favorite venues in Fort Worth – it is always beautiful and the service and food there is just perfect.  Caroline & Mitch’s guests enjoyed the entertainment – from a fun caricature artist to the fab band.  A sparkler send off and on to the Honeymoon!

Caroline & Mitch – Wedding Ceremony at Broadway Baptist Church

Tracy Autem 2015

Caroline & Mitch were adorable and I am thrilled to be sneaking in this amazing peek at their wedding before the Thanksgiving holiday.  Caroline looks like a Hollywood starlet and the beautiful deep fall colors and greenery at this wedding just had me swooning.  We met up with the girls for some preparations at the Sheraton in downtown Fort Worth before heading over to Broadway Baptist.  I love this church for its beautiful architecture and gorgeous getting ready room!  We had a perfect day so we did many of the bridal party and family portraits outside the church before the ceremony.  When it was finally time to walk the long aisle Caroline was all smiles and Mitch was so excited to see his beautiful bride.  My favorite part of their ceremony was the moments directly after – where I caught this great image above.  As they walked out of the chapel they were hugs, kisses, closeness and lots of chatting about their days.  Those first moments as man and wife are always a winner for me.  I get to be present for something that is so private and special.  Congrats you two!

Amanda & John – Wedding Reception at City Club of Fort Worth

Tracy Autem 2014

After a perfect ceremony these two headed over to party with their friends and family at The City Club of Fort Worth.  From the time they entered the room until the last dance the room was full of energy, the dance floor was full and we hall had SO much fun!  I love a groom that spends more time on the dance floor or at his brides side than anywhere else so John is a fave of mine!  Amanda and her friends barely ever stepped off the dance floor, I know they had to be tired at the end of this night!  My favorite part of the day as always was their private last dance.  There is something so magical about the couple alone in their reception space, sharing a moment without all their guests before they say farewell.  Always a tear jerker, always makes me smile and always makes for beautiful images!

Congrats Amanda & John!  I have loved getting to know you and being apart of your journey!

Lindsey & Christian – Wedding Reception at The Colonial Country Club

Tracy Autem 2014

The Colonial Country Club was perfectly elegant for this classic couple.  With red, black and white details and floral the ballroom was gorgeous.  After the couple kicked off the night with their first dance we headed out to capture some golden light near the green.  The course is always a great backdrop at the golden hour and it did not disappoint.  I love that even during romantic portraits these two were laughing and capturing that is better than any pose.  THEN we partied – the dace floor was full all night, cake was delicious and dinner filled everyone to satisfaction.  It was a great night as I enjoyed shaking my tail along with this couple and all their friends.

I am so excited for what the future holds for you two!  Congratulations and be blessed in all things!

Bailey & Brandon – Wedding Reception at Ashton Gardens

Photo by Tracy Autem of Lightly Photography 2013 http://lightlyphoto.com

After Bailey & Brandon’s Wedding Ceremony it was time to celebrate!  After some romantic imagery in the chapel and outside in the chill of the evening we headed in to party it up.  After some fun introductions these two hit the dance floor and invited all their guests to take part in their first dance as husband and wife.  They spent the evening mingling with friends and family and cutting up on the dance floor.  Don’t let Brandon’s laid back demeanor fool you, he knows how to bring it on the dance floor.  He is Sexy and he knows it (And Bailey knows it too!)  His shenanigans were quite entertaining and I think he may have even danced a bit with me.  After lots of fun it was time to depart, we stole them away for one last parting portrait beneath the sweet marquis LOVE letters provided by Leforce Entertainment.  Then they were off to their honeymoon to celebrate their marriage and the new year!  Thanks guys for letting us take part, we so enjoyed ending our 2013 with you.

Bailey & Brandon – Wedding Ceremony at Ashton Gardens

Photo by Tracy Autem of Lightly Photography 2013 http://lightlyphoto.com

Bailey & Brandon’s wedding was the perfect way to seal the end of my 2013 Weddings.  They had a fabulous winter wedding with bright reds and purples at Ashton Gardens in Corinth.  These two aren’t Dallas Fort Worth local though as they traveled with all of their guests from Midland Odessa for their destination style wedding.  We met up with the lovely Bailey and her maids at a nearby hotel for some beautification by Something You Makeup Artistry.  I loved their fun denim shirts with custom monograms, made me want to kind of run out and get one!  Once we arrived at the chapel at the gardens we slid her into her gorgeous gown with lace detailing and a super sweet belt.  I love dresses with unique detailing and hers had it in spades.  Brandon and his gentlemen hung around and were laid back looking toward the ceremony.  He was super excited to open his gift from his bride to be and find some styling Justin Boots.  Practical and oh so suave.

The sun set and ceremony time approached, Bailey share a special reveal of her gown before her Daddy walked her down the aisle.  Brandon’s smile could not be bigger as his bride approached and he pretty  much stayed that way from that moment on as you can see above.  This is one guy who knows what he has and I am sure he will hold on tight to the beautiful girl he gets to call wife.  Stay tuned tomorrow for their killer reception led by Ed Petty of Leforce Entertainment, one of my favorite DJ’s!

All the pretty and planning were made possible to the always Extraordinary, Julie Eastman.  She knows how to pull together a stellar team!

Kelli & Dustin – Wedding and Reception in Temple, Texas

Kelli and Dustin are two aggies that are perfect for  one another in every way.  From the moment I met Kelli I knew I would love working with them and we had so much fun at their wedding earlier this month.  Kelli’s maid of honor, Rian, has been in weddings with me before so she pushed her dear friend to look in Fort Worth at me for their photography.  We road tripped it down to Temple, Texas (just South of Waco) and shared a very special day with them.

At the church they prepared for their ceremony, Kelli had some sweet moments with her family and a beautiful prayer before the ceremony with her bridesmaids.  Dustin and his boys got into some shenanigans from arm wrestling to MUCH Aggie pride.  He was having a great time but my favorite was when he saw his bride enter the church at the top of the balcony and he eagerly awaited her as she descended the steps and met her Dad.  I love the tradition of this church, after the bride descends the stairs her Dad puts on her shoes.  So sweet!  Kelli’s brother helped officiate the ceremony making it truly unique.

On-wards to the reception and some FUN!  They danced, mingled and enjoyed their night and so did we.  It was a perfect day, to see more of their wedding check out their slide show:


Morgan & Jason {Married on New Years Eve} Fort Worth Club & FUMC

Morgan & Jason were married on New Years Eve.  In a way they were my last wedding of 2011 and my first of 2012 as we ended after midnight.  We had a truly beautiful day with them and I was SO very excited to shoot their wedding.  I had been on maternity leave from weddings for almost 3 months so it was awesome to be back doing my thing!  Morgan & Jason were married at First United Methodist Church with a reception to follow at Fort Worth Club.  Here are some of the amazing vendors they used:

Tami Winn Events – Floral

Vera Wang Gowns at Neiman Marcus

Dessy – Brides maid Attire

Ice House Band

Turquoise Video

4 flashes photo booth

Halo Bridal Salon

Gorbos Salon

Morgan kept her dress top secret from all of her bridesmaids and friends so I LOVE these two photos as her dress was brought out.  Her Mom looked so happy and her bridesmaids reactions was WOW!

Often my couples exchange gifts on the wedding day.  I love how expressionistic these two are!  Morgan admiring her Tiffany’s necklace and Jason lost his composure at the sight of his gift.

Confident.  best word to describe this beautiful bride.

The flower Girl watching as Morgan entered the hall.

I think Jason might have been nervous, he was puffing his cheeks out in anticipation but when he saw her…..he just smiled.

Perfect moment with Dad and Daughter.

The main reason I love unity candles is this.  The chance for the couple to steal a moment to themselves amidst the crowd.

I love how tender Jason is.  He kissed her on the shoulder as they danced their first dance.

A sweet moment during the prayer.

This kid had me wanting to run home, scoop up my boys and love on them.

Ice House band ROCKED it!!!

Always amazing flowers by Tami Winn

ADORE this photo of Jason with his Grandma.  Images like this are beyond priceless.

Happy New Year!!!

Natalie & Ryan {Engaged} Urban walls and Herritage Park field

Natalie and Ryan are getting married this June and we finally had a chance to get together and not only take engagement photos but meet for the first time! They both live in Houston and planning from out of town can be tough so we had a phone consultation but had never met.  Natalie is a girl who knows what she wants, especially when it comes to weddings because she is a coordinator and also does floral design.  Because of this she has put together once exclusive team of vendors and I frankly can not wait for her wedding!  They came by the studio early so we could chat, look at some albums and other products and get to know one another a bit before they had to be in front of the camera.  They loosened right up and I had such a great time with them.  My favorite part of the entire session was Ryan picking a dandelion for Natalie to blow on for a wish.  Unfortunately it was one stubborn weed but it sure was sweet.

Creel Grand kids – Children’s portraits in San Angelo, Texas

Bright colorful kids children portraits photos San Angelo Texas Tracy Autem

I am often out west in San Angelo, Texas.  It is my home town and most of my family still lives there.  I love my San Angelo clients and it is always fun to shoot in some of the cool urban locations that the city offers.  Peggy is a good friend of my Mom’s and I was excited to meet her 3 adorable grandchildren.  She had all 3 of them in town for the weekend so she wanted to capture them together at these great ages.  Macie & Camden are brother and sister and Hazel is their little cousin.  These kids were all completely unique and we had a ton of fun playing together in the morning heat.  Here are some of my favorites!  Can’t wait for my next chance to shoot some San Angelo portraits!
