Katherine & Mason – Engagement Photos at Trinity Park & StockyardsFort Worth, Texas

Katherine & Mason met while attending Oklahoma State.  They first crossed each other’s paths as Katherine utilized Mason’s frat house kitchen to bake up some killer s’mores cookie bars.  He felt that it was best not to leave a pretty girl unattended in the kitchen and he then had first dibs on those cookies too!  Later on as they joined the same group of friends to study it clicked and these two started dating.  They have been together 6 years and life has taken them on many adventures together.  Right now Katherine is finishing up Law School before the wedding and Mason is working with his family business out of town.  Soon though, they will be married, together and living a “grown up” life as Mason calls it.  I know the adulting they have ahead of them will be fun, blessed and full of laughter because these two are darling together and full of giggles – especially when Mason gets close to Katherine.  She was getting tickled all session by him!  For their shoot we really embraced the Fort Worth vibe hitting up the Stockyards and Trinity Park for some nature photos.
Can’t wait for the wedding at the Ashton Depot in September!

Laura & David – Wedding Reception at Classic Oaks RanchMansfield, Texas

Lightly Photography 2016

Laura & David have a great love story. Their wedding day is a perfect picture of them and it was filled with such beautiful moments.  During their wedding reception at Classic Oaks we had a blast!  When they descended the grand staircase into their first dance you could feel their love and it pretty much never stopped.  Hearing their parents and friends toast them you could see the intimacy of their relationships but what I heard over and over was what good people Laura & David are.  They were described by every person close to them as kind, compassionate, giving, serving and pretty funny too.  I think these two have a great future ahead of them if they love each other like their families described them they can’t fail.  After some yummy eats and sweets it was time to hit the dance floor!  David and Laura – thank you so much for allowing me to be with you.  I am so happy that I was able to hear and see your love!

Weddings come together for my couples with fabulous teams of people, pulled together to make their vision come to life.  Thanks to Laura & David’s Vendors!

Kim & John – Wedding Ceremony & Reception at Classic Oaks RanchMansfield, Texas

Photo by Tracy Autem

Kim and John had a perfect spring wedding at Classic Oaks Ranch.  These two met at work and as they became friends, then buddies that spent time at Texas Country concerts it grew into something more – romance.  I love the simple beginnings of their relationship and I can see their love for each other is deeply rooted in that friendship.  With their love for a laid back life and music the ranch in Mansfield was a great backdrop to their day.  I loved how they included their sweet doggie in the wedding day and their nieces and nephews.  It was definitely all about family and friends.  Thanks guys for letting us share in your day and be by your side.

 

Thanks to Kim & John’s vendor team who made the day so perfect for them:

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!

 

-Tracy

Karolina & Roger – Engagement Portraits at Eagle Mountain Lake Park

Tracy Autem 2014

I am SO excited to share these – Karolina is our studio assistant so if you are a client of ours you have chatted with this lovely lady by phone or email countless times.  Well, in just a few weeks she is going to be the bride!  We can’t wait to photograph her big day and to see her and Roger joined as husband and wife.  It is fun to photograph someone you see every day, it forces me to stop and really observe and what I saw is how really stunning Karolina is.  She has killer eyes, full hair and flawless skin.   She is going to make a beautiful bride in her Bliss Bridal dress! Last week we met up at Eagle Mountain Lake Park for some engagement photos at this beautiful and rustic park. It perfectly complimented their personalities and Roger’s easy going vibe.  Can’t wait to see these two become a family as when they marry they will become an instant house of 6!  Roger has there gorgeous little girls and Karolina has an adorable little son. Congrats!

Kayla & Neal – Wedding Reception at The Orchard

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

After these two tied the knot in their outdoor wedding at The Orchard it was time to party.  This couple was quoted many times as saying it was ALL about the party.  It most definitely was as we quickly shifted gears to celebrating.  Todd Events brought the outdoors in for their reception with trees sprouting up from the tables, large statement candelabra’s and made it feel like home with comfort food and pies from G Texas Catering.  Kayla’s own mother, Gina, created and provided her elegant brides cake.  THEN the dance party started, it was kicked off with a unique bridal party intro as the bridesmaids and groomsmen competed in a dance off for some prized liquor bottles.  So fun and the best into I have ever seen!  Then we hit the floor with DJ Glenn Roush, all night!  The small dance floor was packed all night, everyone had to have gone home with happy hearts and achy feet!  I am so glad I got to party with these two, it will not be one I forget.

Kayla & Neal – Relaxed Ranch Wedding at The Orchard

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

Kayla and Neal are one of the warmest couples I have ever worked with.  Super sweet, totally in love and they pale a high value on relationships with all those around them.  They made me feel like I was part of the family, a close friend and an honored guest.  It was so much fun to share in their wedding experience.  On a perfect first Saturday in May this couple tied the knot at The Orchard in Azle.  Not a typical ranch wedding the aesthetic was elegant yet relaxed and organic.  Kayla selected Navy and Yellow for her wedding colors.  Perfectly complimented and funnily enough the school colors for Michigan where they met.  I am sure Neal’s family never pictured their son would fall head over heals for a Texas nurse and chase her down south and drag them along for a full on Southern wedding.  Looking above you can see as these two smile at each other in during their ceremony that they are enamored with one another.  Their day was perfected by the Todd Events team providing design, floral and planning for this couple.

Todd Events pulled together a fabulous team of vendors including:

Michelle and Dustin – Engagement Portraits at Eagle Mountain Lake Park and Kimball Art Museum

Tracy Autem Photography 2014 http://tracyautem.com

Michelle and Dustin are as cute as a button!  I could seriously have just photographed them all day but alas the sun set.  🙂  These two and I hit up the Kimball Art Museum and Eagle Mountain Lake Park for their engagement portraits.  I know, two very different location that could not be more perfect for this couple.  Their wedding will be later this year at The Modern and you all know that is one of my absolute favorite venues!  Michelle wore this fab red dress and my favorite color, coral for her second outfit.  Dustin rocked some awesome vests, always a fave of mine as they give so much structure and shape.  See you two soon!

Abby & Jeff – Engagement Portraits at Chandor Garden and Fall Trees

Abby and Jeff are pretty dang amazing.  I love them.  I knew from the moment I met this adorable couple that being a part of their wedding was going to be spectacular.  After some missteps and rescheduling due to weather and other issues we finally got together last week at Chandor Gardens in Weatherford and one of my favorite fields near by.  The gardens there are beautiful and so overlooked by many people, they are intimate and usually empty.  Bentley, their pup, joined us for a few photos and was wrangled by Abby’s Mom (Thanks Momma!)  Then we headed out to one of my favorite spots just down the road from the gardens – this field of trees is fall perfection right now with all the changing colors in the leaves.  It was pretty perfect and was rounded out with this gorgeous vintage sofa rented from Gold Dust Vintage.  Thanks guys and I can’t wait to see you both in April for your wedding at Robert Carr & The Modern!

Kayla & Neal- Engagement Portraits at Penn Farm

Kayla and Neal are getting hitched next year at The Orchard in Azle, Texas and I can’t wait!  I first met these two back in February and finally got together with them last week for their engagement session.  It seemed like it had been forever but before we know it will be wedding time!  Kayla and Neal met at The University of Michigan and when Kayla came home to Texas he happily followed along.  These two are perfect for each other and I so enjoy their company.  Neal brings out a glow in her that just makes me smile – I know on the wedding day she will be absolutely radiant.  To complement their ranch wedding we photographed their engagements at Cedar Hill State Park, Penn Farm – one of my very favorite places for its great light and vintage farm look.
