Christy & Mark – Fort Worth Engagement Session at Trinity Park & The ModernFort Worth, Texas

Christy & Mark are fun, lighthearted but old souls.  This combination makes for a couple that loves fiercely and enjoys one another even in the most simple of things.  Mark is definitely a romantic based on his well thought out proposal.  Here is their engagement story in Christy’s words:

“Mark and I first saw each other in the state Capitol building in Austin, but didn’t really meet until several months later.  So, for our proposal, he asked me to come to the capitol for a business dinner he had. Once I got there, he met me in the large rotunda, and said we were actually going to get a private tour of the capitol building from one of his State Trooper friends.  He then took us up this tiny, windy staircase, and out on to the balcony overlooking downtown Austin at sunset.  That’s when he got down on one knee — and said that he knew when he first saw me 2 year prior, that he couldn’t imagine life without me.  Both my family, and his family, and my two closest friends were all hiding behind a pillar, they jumped out and said congratulations! I was so glad he had these people who mean so much to us, travel to be there for such a special moment!”

For their engagement session we had fun strolling through Trinity Park taking in the fall color and had some fun on the playground and stopped to feed some duckies.  My favorite part of their session was playing amidst The Modern art museum Christmas lights!  I love the effects of the lights in the photos and I think everyone needs to take a break from life to just enjoy the little things sometimes and there is no better time of year to do that than the holidays.  I hope your Holiday is filled with light and cheer as Christy & Mark’s relationship most definitely is!

Bethany & Tyler – Wedding First Look and Wedding Party PortraitsTrinity Park, Fort Worth

Look at how cute and excited these two were to finally see each other!  Bethany knew she wanted a location that was green and lush for her first sight with Tyler.  We selected Trinity Park for just that reason and it was gorgeous!  Right before he turned I asked him what he thought her dress might look like and he may have been a little off on his expectations but he was not disappointed when he turned to see Bethany.  After some photos of the two of them alone they were joined by their bridesmaids and groomsmen for wedding party photos.

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!

Katie and Allen – Engagement Portraits in Fort WorthTrinity Park & Downtown

Katie & Allen are adorable!  They have made their home in Arlington with their two pups that could not be a better reflection of themselves.  They met through mutual friends – best friends that married each other brought these two into each others lives!  Could not be a better way to meet and be sure you have life in common.  Katie & Allen love to adventure and can be found playing top golf or attending a game – especially the Rangers!  After 4 years these two will say I Do this summer at Piazza in The Village and it is going to be one FUN party with DJ Andy Austin there to bring the party!

See you both in a few months!!!

Shelby & Whilden – Engagement Session in Trinity Park & Botanic GardensFort Worth, Texas

Tracy Autem 2015

Shelby and Whilden are getting married next spring here in Fort Worth and it is going to be such a beautiful reception at the Ashton Depot!  These two met in college at Texas Tech 3 years ago and their life has now brought them to Midland where they are working and living.  Leading up to the wedding here in Fort Worth where Shelby is from they are putting down roots in Midland – looking for a home and enjoying life with their 2 pups.  For their engagement session their doggies joined us for some photos at Trinity Park (thanks to Mom who dog wrangled!)  They were super cute and so sweet.  After some dog pics we headed to the Botanic Gardens and strolled around the Fuller Garden.  I loved Shelby’s blue bright dress, she has the most gorgeous smile.  Can’t wait for this wedding!

Aurie & Joe – 1 Year Anniversary PortraitFort Worth, Texas

Tracy Autem 2015

When Aurie reached out to me a few weeks ago about a 1 year anniversary photo shoot I had no idea all the fun I was getting into.  You guys – she surprised him with this photo shoot!  It was like a first look on a wedding day but 1 year later!  Aurie left Joe clues on what to wear, where to go and when to be there and then we prompted him to come outside where he saw his beautiful wife of one year in her wedding gown!  Why?  Well, one a wedding dress is so pretty that really all girls need to get some bonus wear’s out of it!  Two: sometimes wedding days aren’t as smooth as planned and it can mean that less photos are captured than really wanted.  That was the case for Aurie and Joe – their wedding was out of state and she decided to fix her one wedding day regret with a photo session.  I feel so lucky she asked me to be a part!

Joe and Aurie are so adorably sweet together.  After some romantic wedding day style portraits we headed for a picnic complete with their top tier wedding cakes – thawed out and ready to eat!  It was super special.

Happy Anniversary and here is to many years of surprises, fun and laughter!  You two cracked me up and just gave me all the good feels.

Sarah & David – Engagement Portraits in Fort WorthTrinity Park, Water Gardens & Downtown

Photo by Tracy Autem

Sarah & David are getting married this summer and I am so excited to be photographing their wedding at Robert Carr Chapel & City Club of Fort Worth.  These two worked for the same BIG company in Fort Worth but with multiple campus’ they never had a reason to be in the same place.  But due to a company discount at a gym these two did find each other working out and Sarah caught David’s eye and he made a decision to catch hers.  Now they live in Austin but they are coming home to where their story began in Fort Worth to say I do.  For their engagement session we visited Trinity park, the Fort Worth Water Gardens and a few downtown spots.  David had me laughing the entire time and Sarah is just breathtaking.

Kelly and Gerry – Engagement at Fort Worth Botanic Gardens and Trinity Park

 


Tracy Autem 2014

 

Kelly & Gerry will be getting married next March at University Christian and TCU Champion’s club.  I can’t wait for this wedding!  Kelly is one of a fabulous group of young ladies that I have been so lucky to follow on their wedding journeys.  It is one of my favorite things to work with a group of friends!  Kelly and Gerry met at TCU while studying to become teachers.  Gerry was pursuing Spanish and Kelly Math.  These teacher pair is well matched and I laughed a ton with them at their session.  Gerry wanted to do some “FUN” poses so I gave him a few minutes to play and from picking her up, twirling her around and giving her a piggy back ride and I loved the result.  It is the best feeling when at the end of a session I can totally see great things for my couples future.  Gerry is easy going, silly and has a very fun personality while Kelly compliments him with her planning and is a little quieter – this means they are so well balanced that they will have lots of fun, laughter and adventures in their future because Kelly will plan things to happy and Gerry will throw in a dose of spontaneity.  See you two in the spring!

Kate & Josh – Wedding Reception at Fort Worth Club

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

Kate and Josh with their “squiggly” tree above is a fave of mine form their day.  Driving into Trinity park for some photos of the couple alone Josh was excited about some of the trees so of course we found him a perfectly squiggly tree for a few photos.  I love the way Josh’s classic white shirt, bow tie and suspenders compliments Kate’s lace gown.  So classic yet relaxed for these more informal portraits.  After a few more stops including a urban park downtown and the historic post office it was time for this reception.  Glenn Roush had the floor full and the sun was still out!  It stayed packed all night as this couple and their family and friends celebrated.  We had some traditional dances, some guests who played with LED uprights and some late night snacks.  It was so much fun!

Krista – Bridal Portraits at the Historic YWCA in Fort Worth & Trinity Park

Photo by Tracy Autem of Lightly Photography 2013 http://lightlyphoto.comKrista was married in November so I think it is about time I get to sharing her bridal portraits!  Her wedding was at the T&P Station in Fort Worth so the classic vintage look of the YWCA was the perfect compliment.  They have fabulous big windows that provide some pretty sweet light for portraits.  To add in a little natural flair we also visited Trinity Park.
