Christine & Andrew – Getting Ready & First Look at Winspear Opera HouseDallas, Texas

 

 

I just love this photo above!  I think it perfectly captures the joy and ease of this perfect wedding day!  After getting ready at a nearby hotel Christine & Andrew selected the arts district for their first look.  When he turned to see his bride they were full of smiles, a few tears and big hugs!  As we walked to the reflection pool outside of the Winspear these two were just laughing, talking and enjoying each other.  It is exactly what a wedding day should be like!  Thank you to all the other vendors who made this day stress free for Christine and Andrew so they could laugh and enjoy their wedding:

Nicole and Kyle will be getting married in just a few months and I can’t wait!  Their Dallas Weddings at SMU Perkins and The Adolphus is going to be one fun party!  How do I know?  Because these two keep good company, they are friends of one of my other couples and every wedding we get to photograph related to this group of friends is always dance floor packed don’t want it to end excitement.

Nicole and Kyle are super sweet together.  During their session I loved that there was lots of laughter – Kyle knows how to make Nicole smile and laugh and I can just see how she melts into his harms.  Pretty dang perfect.  This day can not get here fast enough!  Congrats you two and I will see you soon!

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.

Ashley & Derek – Dallas City Engagement Session

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

SO super excited to share this session!  From the moment Ashley walked into my office to meet my I just fell in love with her smile, her heart and just sweet disposition.  I was even more excited to see her in her loves arms at this session in Dallas and get to know Derek as well.  These two met in high school and were friends first before Derek began his pursuit of Ashley.  The attended Ol Miss for a little while together before Ashley finished up here at UNT.  These two are inseparable though and I just loved watching them together.  Derek is very laid back, go with the flow and low key while Ashley brings adventure and a fun loving spirit to the table.  Seeing such a well matched couple makes me excited for their wedding and what the future holds for them.  Congrats you two!  Can not wait for your May wedding at the Ritz Carlton!

Lindsey & Christian – Dallas Engagement Photos

Lindsey & Christian have known each other their entire lives almost, attending the same church growing up and probably playing together and being typical little kids they don’t even remember.  They have photos to prove it but until these two finished college and found themselves living back in the same area they never really “saw” each other.  When they did it was obviously God’s perfect timing because if you spend any time with these two you see how much they love one another and how they perfectly compliment one another.  Christian is an opera singer (I know, a very uncommon career path) and Lindsey is a lover of litle ones and teaches school.  To propose Christian took Lindsey on an across country adventure where they ended in New York where he proposed.  Love a guy with a plan!  For their engagement session we explored the Dallas Arboretum and then the Winspear Opera House and Myerson Symphony neighborhood.  We got some golden light and I got to know these two more.  Can’t wait for their wedding next summer!

Krista & Aaron – Dallas Engagement Portraits

Krista and Aaron and I hung out the other day and hit up some of my favorite Dallas locales at Whiterock Lake and the arts district near The Winspear Opera House.  It was a hot day but these two warmed me up more with their awesome personalities and laughs.  This couple met in college at Tarelton University and have been together ever since.  They are so well suited for each other and I can’t wait for their amazing Fort Worth wedding with planner, Kristyn Hall of Event Elements.  See you guys soon (in November, when it sure to be a heck of allot cooler)!

 

Kristy & Jarred – Engagement Photos in Dallas at Sand Volleyball Courts, White Rock Lake and the Arts District

OH my goodness.  I am SOOOOOO in love with this couple and their session.  I had a blast running around Dallas with them and didn’t want the session to end, unfortunately it had to as they were prepping to jet off to Mexico the next morning for a friends wedding.  These two have a great story, they met playing sand volleyball!  Don’t you love that?  I do so we met up at a bar that hosts sand volleyball games every week and where they often play for some fun photos showing off one of their passions.  I loved their “POOK” balls (so named as Jarred took up jokingly calling Kristy Pookie when they started dating.)  Then we headed off for some nature and white rock lake then some glamour in down town Dallas.  We hit up some of my favorites in the arts district near Winspear Opera House and Nasher Sculpture Center before ending with the Skyline at dusk.  All in all an awesome session and I am stoked for their October wedding!
