Sarah & Derek – Destination Wedding at Lake TahoeTahoe, Nevada

Sarah & Derek were married at a private residence on Lake Tahoe.  This spectacular location had amazing views, lake front access and the perfect little green to say I do!  This rustic elegant wedding was so beautiful!  Sarah and her Mom, Ima Jean, did an amazing job pulling together every single details for this intimate affair.  This couple knew they wanted to keep it small and it was so sweet because just their closest family was in attendance.  Sarah prepared upstairs while Derek got ready downstairs – with just a staircase between them I had to make sure they stayed in their places!  Sarah’s airy skirt and gorgeous detailed bodice was beautiful on here and her cascading curls and unique headpiece made the look!  Derek was dapper in winter suiting with textured layers and colors.  During the ceremony, officiated by Sarah’s sister in law, everyone was smiling – including me!  Tears were totally shed by this lady behind the camera as they vowed to love one another – and all of Sarah’s animals and even Derek’s ducks!  These two are so perfectly suited for each other – it just warms my heart they found one another.  Over an intimate dinner they danced with each other and their parents as the sun set.

Abbey & Andrew – Wedding Ceremony at University BaptistFort Worth, Texas

I just LOVE Abbey and Andrew – from a chance meeting in Texas to moving across country and finding love these two were drawn to one another.  Their lives were orchestrated so that they just had to be together and when you are with them you know it is GOOD.

We met up at the Renaissance Worthington to capture these two get ready for their big day along side there friends and family.  It was rainy outside but inside everyone was having fun, laughing and making toasts to all the goodness that was this wedding day.  Abbey had her Mom help her into her gown upstairs while her bridesmaids dressed and anxiously awaited the BIG reveal.  But, before she went downstairs Daddy came up to see his daughter all dressed in white.  He brought her a bracelet and they hugged it out and made this photographer totally get teary!  (I love Daddy Daughter moments!!!)  Then as she walked downstairs those bridesmaids squealed and smiled to see their friend looking SO beautiful!  The guys toasted some whiskey and Andrew chatted with his Grandpa as he prepped to see his bride.

At the church it was go time and you could see how anxious Andrew was for those doors to open, when it did he was all smiles and tight lipped holding back those tears – Abbey was breathtaking!  Through out the ceremony we had laughter, smiles and sweet glances.  It was perfection.  Their minister, a family member, was awesome and made everything about the ceremony so personal and deep.

After these two were officially wed, God gave us a beautiful gift and stopped the  misty rain just long enough for us to steal 3 minutes outside before family portraits began.  This California couple hoped for sunshine days but at least we got a moment without the rainy skies.

Thank you to all the vendors who made this day so perfect:

Abbey & Andrew – Engagement Session at the StockyardsFort Worth, Texas

Abbey & Andrew started their story in Fort Worth with a chance meeting.  It is Abbey’s hometown and Andrew lived in Fort Worth for work.  Although they only knew each other briefly they kept in touch after Andrew moved on to work in California.  Sometimes though things are just meant to be and as life happened and things changed in Abbey’s life she got a call for a job in California too and moved out West where she later reconnected with Andrew.  Second time was a charm but I have to say that I think they were meant to be after spending an hour with them in front of my camera.  These two are positively perfect together and just full of smiles, laughter and sweetness.  I loved that they were spending the Thanksgiving holiday together – even before they were married!  I was super happy that I got these two to sneak away from the family though for some photos!  And can I just say WOW to Abbey’s gorgeous outfit choice – so on trend and fun with beautiful coloring that just made her look stunning (don’t worry Andrew – you looked great to but can you blame me?) Can’t wait for your wedding next year!

Emilee & Jeff – Wedding Ceremony at Marty Leonard ChapelFort Worth, Texas

Tracy Autem 2015

Emilee & Jeff’s black and white wedding was not just super pretty – it was full of emotional moments that made me get goose bumps and cry happy tears behind my camera.  After an sweet first look at the Omni hotel we headed to Marty Leonard Chapel for their wedding ceremony.  Emilee got her bridesmaids super fun black and white polka dot umbrella’s by Kate Spade so we had to use them for a photo – so cute!  After some photos of the bridesmaids and groomsmen outside the church it was time for their fall nighttime ceremony. The chapel has bright light during the day but at night it is moody and dimly lit and I think it feels very romantic.  During the ceremony I don’t think Jeff stopped smiling for an instant – I love his smile – so bright and contagious.  Even now I am smiling as I type thinking about his face.  🙂  After the I do’s we were able to capture some night time portraits showing off the architecture and space that makes the Marty Leonard Chapel so beautiful and unique.

Weddings are awesome but they are sure made better by a fab vendor team!  Thankfully Emilee had one great team:

Katie & Charlie – Winter Night Wedding Ceremony at Marty Leonard Chapel

Fort Worth Club New Years Eve Wedding Marty Leonard chapel tami winn events tracy autem photography katie charlie-48

 We ended 2015 with one fun blowout of a party as we celebrated alongside Katie & Charlie at Marty Leonard Chapel and The Fort Worth Club.  Before we could ring in the new year first we had to countdown to Conway and get these two married!

We kicked off the day at The Fort Worth club for preparations and some relaxing with the bridesmaids and groomsmen.  The ladies were ready to party and sparkling from head to toe in their gold drape backed sequin gowns.  Charlie, the sweetheart that he is, gave each of the bridesmaids a bottle of Creed Perfume, Love in White, with a hand written note on the back thanking them for being a part of their day.  Every detail was perfect and thought out from the fabulous blue shoes Katie wore to the bejeweled clutch and the amazing sapphire ring borrowed from he groom’s Mother.  When it was time to get dressed Katie just glowed.  I love her classic and clean lined gown with a fun and textured flared skirt.

At the church we snuck in a few photos as the sun was setting outside.  The ladies were so sophisticated in their fur stoles.  Charlie and his guys were thankful for the cold though – it is so funny to me how guys are always hot!  Whenever it is cold outside it seems like a blessing to the groom.  Katie’s family had their childhood minister who baptized her fly in to perform the ceremony.  By candlelight and romantic moody lighting the couple said their vows.  Charlie cried a few tears and Katie was so radiant.  It was such a pleasure to share this day with them.

Without this amazing team this wedding would not have been possible, thanks friendors!

Katie – Bridal Portraits at The Milestone in Denton

Milestone Bridal Portrait clean white bright classic bride portrait photo dog puppy tami winn tracy autem katie-8

Katie was a gorgeous bride and I just loved every moment I spent with her.  Genuine, sweet and kind with a happy heart describes this lovely lady so well.  Let me add, gorgeous!  She is radiant on the inside and out.  Her wedding day was super special but first a few weeks prior we headed up to Denton to the Milestone for her bridal portraits.  The simple and classic clean lines of the venue were the perfect backdrop for her session.  I loved her vera wang gown with delicate jeweled belt.  Katie carried an all white bouquet by Tami Winn – it is just winter white perfection!  Her little pup, Winston, joined in for pictures and he was a perfect gentleman.  He wore a rocking little gold bow tie so that he was properly dressed for the occasion.

 

I wish I could rewind so I could spend more time with you Katie!  Congrats and check back to see more of this fabulous bride and her groom, Charlie, later this week.

Kayla & Chris – Wedding Reception at The Fort Worth Club

Tracy Autem 2015

Such a perfectly made day with magical holiday touches like this awesome classic car with a Christmas Tree on top!  When you choose to get married in December it is best to embrace the holidays and not fight it because the result is always magical.  I loved this couple’s way of subtly allowing the club’s holiday decor to enhance their beautiful day.  Kayla even brought along some mistletoe for a photograph.  So cute!

 

This reception was SO fun.  Kayla & Chris should teach classes to other couples on how dip because they looked awesome!  Lots of laughter and a little bit of tears as their friends and Father of the bride toasted the couple.  The sweet maid of honor had contacted us prior to the wedding and we hooked her up with some engagement images to complete a book she presented to the couple that chronicled their lives together.  It was such a thoughtful gift it brought tears to Kayla’s eyes.  Then the party was on, cake was served and everyone hit the dance floor!
Thank you Kayla & Christoph for including me and Sarah at your special day.  We loved being there with you and had a great time.  Congrats!

Special thanks to our vendor friends who helped make this wedding perfect!

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!

Caroline & Mitch – Wedding Reception at Ashton Depot

Tracy Autem 2015

These night time shots kill me!  Like, make me jump up and down I’m so happy for the opportunity to make the dark look beautiful!  I think almost all photographers love beautiful natural light but sometimes that just isn’t what your day has.  In the fall/winter in Texas with the early sunset time it is often dark when the ceremony ends.  We take that challenge and love to create some moody, romantic lit portraiture.  I love this series of images of Caroline & Mitch in the garden at the Ashton Depot and out front with the lights of Fort Worth behind them.  The depot is one of my favorite venues in Fort Worth – it is always beautiful and the service and food there is just perfect.  Caroline & Mitch’s guests enjoyed the entertainment – from a fun caricature artist to the fab band.  A sparkler send off and on to the Honeymoon!

Caroline & Mitch were adorable and I am thrilled to be sneaking in this amazing peek at their wedding before the Thanksgiving holiday.  Caroline looks like a Hollywood starlet and the beautiful deep fall colors and greenery at this wedding just had me swooning.  We met up with the girls for some preparations at the Sheraton in downtown Fort Worth before heading over to Broadway Baptist.  I love this church for its beautiful architecture and gorgeous getting ready room!  We had a perfect day so we did many of the bridal party and family portraits outside the church before the ceremony.  When it was finally time to walk the long aisle Caroline was all smiles and Mitch was so excited to see his beautiful bride.  My favorite part of their ceremony was the moments directly after – where I caught this great image above.  As they walked out of the chapel they were hugs, kisses, closeness and lots of chatting about their days.  Those first moments as man and wife are always a winner for me.  I get to be present for something that is so private and special.  Congrats you two!
