SS12 TheFinePrint 01 Brides of North Texas 2012 Spring Issue {Editorial} The Fine Print   papers and invitations

We love working with the Brides of North Texas Magazine.  It is full of awesome tips and ideas for the modern bride.  This current issue I had the privilege of photographing the invitation and papers spot light.  The paper products you send to your guests announcing your engagement to the place card at the reception tell a story about what to expect on the wedding day.  I have a deep love with letterpress products and fonts used in interesting ways and these all caught my fancy.  For more information on my past publications with Brides of North Texas see HERE.

January 1, 2012 Hello 2012!

We are so excited for this upcoming year at Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography.  2011 was an over the top year.  I bought our new studio building, we renovated it and we moved in.  I shot my 100th wedding.  I had a second son, Gideon, in October.  Sarah Halferty graduated with her BFA in photography.  Amanda McCollum, TCU photography graduate, joined our team.  Sarah Rizy (my indispensable right hand girl) became an avid runner and is participating in 5K’s to raise money for cancer research.  We worked with all of our favorite vendors and had the most beautiful brides.  Can’t wait for whatever 2012 brings……

Here is a sneak peek of the wedding we photographed last night, on New Years Eve.  This is how we brought in the new year and it was an amazing time.
