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.

Allie and Kane – Engagement Photos at Mitas Vineyard in McKinney

Engagement Session Mitas Hill Vineyard Tracy Autem Photography-0013

I just don’t know where to start – this session made me so happy, when I came home my face was hurting from smiling so much.  Allie and Kane are just the sweetest and kindest couple.  Their Momma’s raised them right and raised them together – these two have know each other pretty much as long as they can remember.  Kane was always good friends with Allie’s twin sister so as they grew up and he pursued Allie everyone was pleasantly surprised.  They are perfect opposites, complimenting one another in every single way.  Also they push one another – I love to see that!  During the session Kane was egging Allie on singing “Anything you can do I can do better, I can do anything better than you.”  It was hilarious but man it worked!  That push is what helped me get this AMAZING photo above.  I suggested we find a way into the creek and Kane’s determination infected Allie and she bravely scaled a incline to get this image.

 

Allie picked out some adorable outfits – loved her butterfly skirt!  The Mitas Hill Vineyard was a beautiful backdrop for their session and was so diverse in spots to photograph.  To end the session they both threw on  their college t-shirts for some silly casual photos.

This session was fun in every way and when it ended I hated to say goodbye, I just wanted to hang out with them more!  I am looking so forward to my next chance to spend time with Allie & Kane at their wedding next year!  Congrats you two!

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!

Allison & Michael – Engagement Portraits in Fort Worth Nature

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014SWOON times ten is about how I feel about this fabulously organic and nature filled photo shoot.  When Allison told me they just wanted light and fun nature shots I knew immediately where we were going and this new favorite spot did not disappoint.  I like to do a little scouting from time to time and a few weeks ago my Lightly Photo team and I explored a little trail and found this gem of a field alone side some amazing calm waters.  Oh how fabulous it is.  It is a trek, a 20 minute walk from the car to this spot but worth every single step.  It fit them to a T and I am in love with this session and this cute couple.  Allison is the sister of one of my family portrait clients so I was super exited to meet more of the family and snag this awesome wedding.  They will be getting married this fall at The Orchard in Azle and after this I am even more on edge for their wedding!  Thanks you two for trusting me and for wearing sensible shoes for your session so we could explore!

-Tracy
