Kristin & Michael – Wedding Reception at Dove Ridge VineyardFort Worth, Texas

Kristin & Michael’s wedding was so much fun!  I love how they used the entire space at Dove Ridge Vineyard as guests danced, mingled under the stars and enjoyed delicious food!  They were adorable as Michael spun Kristin and held her tight through out their first dance.  As the sun set, God painted a fabulous backdrop for them outside that guests and the couple enjoyed as they drank cocktails and mingled under the setting sun.  The amazing views are even visible inside with the floor to ceiling windows on both sides of the hall.  These two really value their friends and family and they took so much time to really connect with everyone at their wedding.

 

Big shout out to all the vendors who made this day beautiful!

Kristin & Michael – Portraits at Dove Ridge VineyardFort Worth, Texas

Check out those sunset hues!  This is why Kristin & Michael selected Dove Ridge Vineyard for their wedding – the stunning hilltop views at this ranch like location are stunning.  These two are so sweet together and were ultra lovey and cute on this rather blustery day.  As the sun set we stole away a few moments for sunset photos twice!  The sky slowly changed and as it did we had to get a photo with these golden and blue hues.

I can’t wait to photograph out here again as the vines in the vineyard below begin to mature and grow!  This place is perfect already and it is only going to get better!

Laura & David – Wedding Portraits at Classic Oaks RanchRomantics in Mansfield, Texas

Lightly Photography 2016

Laura & David are not just super beautiful people on the inside they are also pretty amazing to look at and photograph!  I mean look at these two!  If the sun had not been setting and I had unending perfect sunset light I  might have photographed them for a hour more.  Take a peek at their romantic couples portraits on the Classic Oaks Ranch property.  We scaled a cattle guard for some gorgeous photos and it was so worth it!  I love every part of Classic Oaks from the outdoor chapel, the barn and pastures.  Can’t wait to share this fun reception tomorrow!

 

Thank you to the wedding team that Laura & David selected and helped make this day so magical (and big shout out to David who helped with ALL the wedding planning!!!)

Jillian & Brady – Wedding Portraits in the Vineyard at Mitas HillMcKinney, Texas

Mitas Hill Vineyard is so beautiful and I was so excited to steal a few moments away with Jillian & Brady among the vines.  Loved every second of this 15 minutes.  Mitas Hill truly is the most beautiful vineyard wedding location in the Dallas Fort Worth area.  Fields of grapes, a stream, dirt paths and beautiful trees.  A photographer could not ask for more – but I got it!  I had these two love birds in front of the camera too.  I am a lucky girl!  Check back tomorrow for their fun reception!

Britny & Aman – Engagement Photos at White Rock Lake and Dallas Arboretum

Tracy Autem 2015

This wedding has me on the edge of my seat – September can’t get here fast enough so I can celebrate for 2 days with this amazing couple.  Britny is the sister of one of my past brides and I have loved her ever since.  When she called to say she was getting married I was over the moon.  She is funny, bright and just a joy to be with.  I can see why Aman chased after her.  Aman is just as fun and a complete gentleman.  He is in love and is such a genuine and kind person.  When we first got to talking Britny told me how when they were first talking they would do some fishing down at the pond so we incorporated a little bit of fishing into their session for a nod at their story.  I loved this beautiful and warm quilt that Brit brought along – we pretended it was cold and snuggled up since it was a 70 degree kind of December day!  For a taste of a more formal look we also visited the Dallas Arboretum.  I will see you both in Sept for a traditional Indian ceremony and a full fledged american celebration and wedding!  It is going to be awesome!

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.

Bree & Craig – Getting Ready & Ceremony at Dallas Private Ranch

Private Ranch Residence Wedding ceremony outside flowers stylish soiree Tracy Autem photography Dallas Fort Worth Tent fireworks limelight band-67

After a kiss to seal their marriage Craig and Bree were all smiles as the turned to their family and friends.  Those infectious smiles made it easy and fun to photograph these two.  As the couple arrived at the family ranch a few hours before the I Do’s they prepped is separate homes on site.  Bree was stunning in her Pronovias gown with a  lace caplet that made her look.  I love a girl that knows what she likes and Bree knows.  She wanted some type of sleeves and by adding this little lace bolero she achieved exactly what she wanted. It was sophisticated with her high top knot style bun and a the textured mermaid skirt.  Her ladies shined in dresses from Nordstrom.  The guys went classic and relaxed in gray suiting with suspenders and no jackets to keep cool on this hot summer day.  Craig’s jacket however pulled his look tighter and made him a polished groom.

 

As guests arrived they were greeted by the family dog complete with a flower wreath of baby’s breath.  I love that they turned everything around and kicked off the day with a cocktail hour.  So guests enjoyed the shade, cold drinks and light snacks before the wedding.  During the ceremony as the sun began to set vows were said and this to were married!  Lots of laughs, big smiles, and sweet moments.  Check back tomorrow for their energy filled party and of course thank you to the following vendor team who made this day such a sucess!

Bree & Craig – First Look and Romantic Portraits at Dallas Private Ranch

Private Ranch Residence Wedding ceremony outside flowers stylish soiree Tracy Autem photography Dallas Fort Worth Tent fireworks limelight band-79

This post is all about the couple!  I am kicking off Bree & Craig’s big wedding reveal with all of their romantic portraits and their first look from their private residence ranch wedding outside of Dallas.  After a day of prep and a little side of nerves this couple FINALLY got to see each other.  I love this couple because they are raw and honest and pretty amazingly in love.  We hopped on the old golf cart and headed out into the pasture for some photos with hay bales and the spot where he proposed.  At sunset the light glowing behind the trees near Bree’s family pond was pretty much the most perfect thing ever! I am so glad, due to the first look earlier in the day, we had time to focus on some killer photos when that sun hit the sweet spot.    Scroll on to see some pretty hot pics with a side of silly thrown in.  Enjoy!

 

Huge thank you to A Stylish Soiree for making this wedding so much fun and beautiful to boot!

Rachael & Colin – Engagement Photos at White Rock Lake & Dallas Skyline

 

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

SOOOO excited to share this session I did before Thanksgiving.  The leaves were really starting to change and I adore this couple!  They hired me with out a meeting so a few weeks ago we finally got together and hung out, got to know each other and went over their wedding – it is going to be a fun one!  Then before the holiday we ordered up some perfect weather for their White Rock Lake & Dallas Skyline engagements!  This two are both Aggies but didn’t  meet while attending college, after graduation both found themselves in Dallas, attending the same church!  I love when couples meet in their place of worship, it unites them in so many ways from the very start and sets such a solid foundations for their marriage.  Rachael is gorgeous and I loved the outfits she selected for their shoot.  She even braved the dock at the lake for a few photos even though the mass amounts of birds hanging around were a little freaky.  Colin is just a love, He was so sweet to her through out the session, his smiles and snuggles say it all about how he feels about his bride to be.

Can’t wait for their May wedding in Dallas!  Want more?  Than check out some more of my favorites from their engagement portraits:

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
