Mary Katherine & Wes – Engagement Portrats at Dallas Arboretum & White Rock LakeDallas, Texas

Mary Katherine and Wes met at Texas Christian University in business class.  Wes caught her eye as he was giving a presentation and now, 7 years later, they are getting married this December.  After college these two and their dog Cash moved to Dallas.  We visited the Dallas Arboretum and the Lake for their engagement session.  They spend lots of time with their pup at White Rock Lake – Cash LOVES the lake!  He was such  good boy for us during their photo shoot.  In January Wesley popped the question on Mary Katherine’s birthday and I can’t wait to celebrate with them on New Years Eve Weekend!

Jennifer & Stephen – Engagement Portraits at Winspear Opera House & White Rock LakeDallas, Texas

Tracy Autem 2015

I am on the edge of my seat in anticipation for this wedding next Spring.  Stephen and Jennifer and super fun together and I had a blast photographing them last week.  These two met in high school but started dating just a few years ago.  Now they find themselves living in Dallas and getting married in San Antonio next year.  These two together are pretty much the best.  I love Stephen’s silly faces and how he knows exactly how to make Jennifer smile.  We explored the Winspear Opera House area near downtown Dallas and Jen rocked a statement cobalt blue dress that made her eyes and hair pop!  After a little city we went for a total opposite vibe near White Rock Lake.  With their sweet golden pup in towe we snuggled up in the grass and had some fun with gorgeous sunset light.  Congrats Jennifer & Stephen!  So excited for you two!

Bethany & Tyler – Engagement Photos at Dallas Arboretum & White Rock LakeDallas, Texas

Tracy Autem 2015

Bethany & Tyler met in Dallas through mutual friends and they are already having BIG adventures together as they prepare for their June wedding next summer.  Bethany packed up her life here in Dallas and headed to North Carolina so that these two would not be apart while Tyler pursues his MBA.  I had such a great time getting to know Bethany & Tyler – they are super sweet and I can tell that this time in their life is so good for them.  While at school it is allowing them to have lots of quality time since Bethany is telecommuting to her job here in Texas.  I am so excited for all their future holds and their wedding next year.  Can’t wait!

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!

Courtney & Miles – Engagement Portraits at Dallas Arboretum & White Rock Lake

Tracy Autem 2015

This session just makes me giggle and grin.  Courtney & Miles met in Dallas and currently live there with their puppy dog – Finley.  I had the privilege of taking these two to the Dallas Arboretum and being their tour guide as we took some stunning photos.  I can’t believe they have lived in the area so long and had never been!  It was the perfect backdrop through – a bit of nature and a touch of elegance to go with their night on the town outfit.  Courtney’s dress had the most fabulous sleeves with a  peek a boo checkered design.  Courtney works at an ad agency and Miles practices corporate law.  Although their lives may have them in Dallas today she is a Fort Worth girl through and through so their wedding will be at The Fort Worth Club next summer.  Finley – their Husky – joined us for a few photos at White Rock Lake (thanks to Courtney’s Mom for playing dog wrangler!)  We found this beautiful pocket of red and yellow autumn leaves and it was just amazing!  I love these guys and I am so looking forward to their wedding and working the fab team of Sarabeth Events!

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:

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!

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!

Tracey & Luis – Engagement Photos at White Rock Lake, Dallas

2014 Tracy Autem PhotographyTracey and Luis are getting married this coming November and I can’t wait!  Number one, she has a really cool name.  Now it might have an extra “E” in it but I won’t hold that against her.  These two are darling and sweet together and I had a great time with them for their Dallas Engagement session at White Rock Lake.  We explored some new spots and some old faves for their nature inspired shoot.  The relaxed and classic feel worked perfectly with their attire and personalities.  Best part, Luis loves her.  Yep, totally.  See you two soon!
