Ragan & Alex – Engagement Portraits in Sundance Square & Nature ParkFort Worth, Texas

Ragan & Alex met at TCU and their love story has continued on for over 4 years and headed towards the altar next May!  I can’t wait for their Fort Worth Zoo wedding – it is going to be amazing!  These two are totally cute together and I love their smiles and how they just fit perfectly together no matter how I had them pose.  Ragan is extra cute and has a super fashion sense – if you love any of her clothes from this session head on over to her boutique of Camp Bowie – Hulla B’Lu!  For their session we did a little bit nature, a little bit city!  It was the perfect vibe and I had a great time getting to know them and chat about their upcoming wedding – most excited, not going to lie – for some animal sightings during the wedding.

Congrats you two!

Jacqueline & Matt – Engagement Portraits in a Natural ParkFort Worth, Texas

This session just makes my cheeks hurt – I am smiling so much and haven’t really stopped since I photographed these two lovebirds!  Jacqueline and Matt met in college in Tulsa and were a perfect match.  Together these two just melt into one another and I love the way Matt looks at his bride to be, he knows he is a lucky guy!  These two are doing the long distance dance right now as Jacqueline travels allot from her home locally to Houston to be with Matt.  My prayer for them is that she soon finds that perfect job down in Houston so she can be close to her guy!  I adored the long formal frock that Jacqueline paired with this natural location – it made the two of them the stars of the photos!  The light we had was perfect for their afternoon session – look at that amazing light!  Recent rains had the waterfall full of water and these brave souls barred their feet and walked through it to reach my perfect spots.  So thankful for adventures and love filled clients!  Can’t wait for their Fall wedding at Robert Carr Chapel and The Ashton Depot!

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.

p.s. – HUGE shout of thanks to Amanda for assisting me on this shoot, helping with poses, making them laugh and generally being a great person.  Love you girl!

 

Kyndall & Cole – Engagement Photos at Botanic Gardens at TCU CampusFort Worth, Texas Christian University

Tracy Autem 2015

Kyndall & Cole are getting married next summer at TCU!  Yep, ceremony at Robert Carr Chapel and the reception overlooking the stadium at the TCU Champion’s club!  Texas Christian University is a huge part of this couples story, it is where it began so it makes so much sense that they will be saying I do there too!  They met as freshman and were friends thorough out college.  Cole knows he was firmly place in the friend zone and he worked hard to get out of it and eventually Kyndall came around and fell hard for this sweet and loving man.  He is a little soft spoken but I think Kyndall’s bubbly and outgoing personality make them a perfect pairing.  So complimentary!  This past summer both of their families vacationed together in Hawaii where Cole proposed 0 so special!  I had so much fun hanging out with them and loved Kyndall’s deep purple lace dress and her adorable “game day” outfit for the football stadium.  So much fun!  Can’t wait for the wedding!  Rah Rah TCU!

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!

Madison & Holt – Engagement Portraits at Dallas Arboretum & White Rock Lake

Tracy Autem 2014

Madison & Holt are getting married next July in Fort Worth at TCU’s Robert Carr Chapel and The Modern.  Although this couple attended Texas Christian University and met there they live in Dallas so we met up on a beautiful day for some engagement portraits at The Dallas Arboretum & White Rock Lake.  I had some scrumptious light, especially for mid day and we overcame the wind for one of my favorite fall photo shoots.  Madison looked amazing in her plaid and classic cape sweater and was pretty perfectly complimented by Holt’s sweater.  These two are easy in front of the camera, sweet to one another and just perfectly matched.  I am so excited for their wedding and to see what DFW Events pulls together for their special day!

Allison & Michael – Wedding Reception at The Orchard, Azle

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

After a laugh filled ceremony this couple was blessed with what I would define as perfect light.  It was the right time of day with a beautiful natural landscape behind them at The Orchard in Azle.  I’m so happy we had time to walk around the property for these images, they are some of my favorites of late!  Allison and Michael are just sweet as pie together, so loving, so tender and full of great smiles and laughter – their joy is contagious as I was just as happy behind the camera as they were in front of it!  After using up all our light it was time to party!  Their friends and family dined on some yummy mexican food then danced the night away!  Sealing the evening with a sparkler exit was the perfect ending, congrats to a pretty fabulous couple, I know you have a life time of happiness ahead!

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

Casey and William are getting married next June in Dallas at Christ the King and the Dallas Arboertum.  These Fort Worth TCU alumni met in college and started dated after they graduated.  Now they are tithing the knot and I just can’t wait for their wedding.  We met up last week on a beautiful day at White Rock Lake where all of their session took place.  It is simply beautiful out there and the leaves are just barely starting to turn and fall to the ground – so excited it finally feels like Fall!  Their pup, Oscar, joined in on some photos as well.  I had a great time getting to know the two of you better and the wedding next year is sure to be fabulous!

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!
