Sara & Derek are getting married next June and although I wont be photographing their wedding I was very excited to get to know them and capture this important time in their life.  They knew exactly what they wanted location wise, wore beautiful bright outfits and brought along so cute props so they were SO my kind of people.  I immediately felt a bond with Sara over her love of cupcakes because seriously, who doesn’t love cupcakes!  They were incredibly sweet to one another and both of them just wowed me with their infectious smiles and killer eyes.  I must say at the end of the session I was sad that I won’t be photographing their wedding but they do have one lucky photographer because they are a joy to have in front of the camera.  Best of luck in all your wedding plans and I hope that I helped you nail down those color choices (Sara has been so overwhelmed and not able to decide but we did some major color conversing during our shoot – turquoise and dusty rose, pretty!!!)

Holly & Jason Engaged in Fort Worth

Old house sun flare fort worth engagement photos Tracy Autem

Loved this shot the moment I took it. So many layers with the sun, the adorable couple and the shadows on the wall.

Last week I met up with Holly & Jason at my studio in Fort Worth for their engagement shoot.  Holly called me up a few weeks ago and hired me for her September wedding so it was the first time we had ever met.  We hung out at the studio for a bit and then dived right into the shoot where I got to know both of them and Jason’s cutie pie of a daughter, Samantha.  When you get married and have kids it is about more than the couple so we always love involving the kiddo’s in engagement session, as I told Samantha, she is getting married too!  She is getting Holly and I know Holly is lucky to be getting such a beautiful young lady.  They are having fun country sheik wedding all in classic black and whites at their friends ranch south of Fort Worth.  I am so looking forward to it after falling completely for this couple, they were so genuine and tender with each other.  See you guys in September!

This shot and the next were Holly's idea, I have the best clients. We were driving down the road, one I have been on hundreds of times and she noticed the old tracks and the city and wanted to stop. Glad we did.

Bethany & Rob – Fort Worth Engagement Session

Fort Worth Engagement Photos Tracy Autem Alley Urban

Bethany & Rob live in Atlanta and are getting married here, in Fort Worth, in November.  They are super silly and just charming together, I am looking even more forward to the wedding now that we got to hang out.  When we first met they were not sold on doing an engagement session but once they realized my shoots are more about having fun and getting to know each other I swayed them.  Leading up to the session Bethany said they got excited because they knew that their photos were going to be different from many of their friends engagement photos.  We headed out and hits some of my favorite Fort Worth spots near the stockyards and the old farmers market.  They were the perfect mixture of goofy and affectionate and to me that is perfection.  Enjoy some of their cute moments and silly ones as well at their Fort Worth Engagement Session!

Jennifer & Shane Engaged! A Dallas – Bishop Arts District Session

This shot is SO perfect. Love the colors and them just chilling out on the iron bench. Happiness.

This week has been a busy one but it has been SO much fun to hang out with all my couples.  So often we shoot our engagement sessions in Fort Worth but Shane & Jennifer elected to do their shoot in Dallas.  It was cool because it gave me the chance to check out a few new locations like the Bishop Arts District and the Avanti Fountain.  We of course also hit some of my old but good spots in and around Deep Ellum.  Shane & Jennifer and getting married in September at The Piazza in the Village and I am so excited to be working with them.  Jennifer and her Mom totally impressed me at their consultation and man do these girls have it together.  They have done some wedding and party planning in the past so when it came time for Jennifer to tie the knot I think her and her Mom were full of an abundance of ideas.  I didn’t get to meet Shane until the engagement session but he is a super sweet guy and totally in love with his girl.  Here are some images from their fun Dallas Engagement Shoot!

Ruth & Andrew Engaged!

Engagement Photo Tattoo Couple Urban

Love the sweetness in this photo and Ruth kicking her foot up.

Ruth and Andrew are getting married in about a month at a new venue right down the street from my studio, 809 Vickery.  We hung out last week as I got to know Andrew and Ruth better and took some fun photos of them about town.  Ruth’s only request was to go to the big silver man statue in down town and we were in luck as the park just re-opened this month after undergoing a major remodel.  We played there and hit some of my favorite spots around Fort Worth.  These two have amazing personalities and are awesome people.  Andrew is a pastor of a local church, Deliverance Bible Church of Fort Worth and I just adore these two and their passion for the Lord.  Can’t wait for their wedding in July, here are some photos from their Fort Worth engagement shoot.

Jesse – Class of 2010!

Jesse is a sweet teen who was referred to us by one of her favorite teachers, Meredy Russell who is one of our brides from last year.  Jess is a fun girl who has played a variety of sports and is looking forward to heading off to college in the Fall.  With just weeks to go before graduation she had to squeeze in her photo session to commemorate this special time in her life.  Congrats Jessica on all your hard work and we wish you luck in the fall!  Here are some of my favorite photos from her session.

Veronica & Robert Engaged!

Time flew by when I was hanging out with these two for their engagement shoot.  I loved their goofy personalities and best of all how much Robert kisses on Veronica.  When ever I start a session I give my couples a little info on how the shoot will go.  For the most part my couples interact but I give little cues on when to kiss or where to look to make the photos magic happen but not with this couple.  They just fell into it and played and every time I found myself about to say “give her a kiss” there he was planting one on her.   Talk about chemistry!  One of my favorite things to request of my couples is that they be dangerously close and they mastered it.

Engagement shoots have to be the best part of this job because it gets me SO excited about my couples wedding.  By the end of this session I knew that this wedding will be an amazing one!  It was so great getting to know you two this week and I can’t wait for your wedding in June.  I also photographed Veronica’s bridals this week but can’t share so we can keep her dress secret.  She designed it herself and had it made so it is super special.

ah, the moment as a kiss ends jus makes me smile

Ah, the moment a kiss ends makes me smile

Veronica is just gorgeous

Love this one!

Too cool to look at the camera.

Always love getting a good solo shot of my bride and groom. (for the Moms!)

Adore. Great lines and depth with the tree limbs in the foreground.

Something Blue: Veronica is wearing these shoes on her wedding day so it was appropriate to break them in during the engagement session.
