Haley – Bridal Portraits at McKinney Cotton Mill

Haley Rusty Wedding Bridal Portrait Session McKinney Cotton Mill warehouse industrial columns rustic vintage light large big windows beautiful sweetheart Tracy Autem Photography by Tracy Autem

Haley is married!  Therefore I can share these stunning pictures.  Now, if you just perused her wedding day photos you might stop and think, wait, this dress is different.  Well, it is.  Haley, like so many brides, had second thoughts.  Not about Rusty (she knew she picked right on that one) but about her gown.  The dress you see in her wedding photos was her first and RIGHT dress but she bought this one thinking she was going to switch BUT then went back to the first.  I love us ladies, we are so indecisive but to me it just means double the fun with gowns!  I liked both of them and this dress was stunning at The McKinney Cotton Mill.  LOVE!

Sarah – Bridal Portraits in a Private Residence

Sarah’s bridals were truly special even if things didn’t go as planned.  We had hoped for a beautiful May day where we could take advantage of her parents ranch property.  Well, it rained.  Yeah, it was not ideal BUT luckily the inside of her Mom & Dad’s home is just as beautiful as the outside as we took advantage of its nooks and crannies.  Love this girl, her hubby and their families and I am so happy that I got to go on this journey with them.  Congratulations again Sarah!

Kerri – Bridal Portraits at The McKinney Cotton Mill

Kerri and Jase were married over the weekend at Marty Leonard Chapel and Stockyards Station so I can finally share her beautiful portraits.  I am in love with the photo above, so dramatic it feels very sultry.  All of her portraits made me smile behind my camera and it was a true joy to photograph her.  Kerri knew how to work i and her dress was AH-mazing.  McKinney Cotton Mill was the perfect backdrop for her with its rustic vibe and the great sunset light through the windows.

 

Kelli – Bridal Portraits in The Hill Country at a Country Church

On a VERY hot day earlier this year I trekked down to Temple, Texas to meet up with my bride Kelli and her Mom for her bridal portraits.  We headed out into the hill country to a ranch owned by a family friend where this tiny little church sits.  It was so little only about 20 people could fit comfortably inside but it was perfect for her bridal portraits.  I have been dying to share them and now that these two are married I finally can!  Look back soon for their wedding photos.

Rachel & Andrew – Bridals at The Majestic Theater in Dallas

I am a little excited about these bridal portraits.  I have been chomping at the bit to share them because I love this bride, this location and well it was kind of a perfect combination.  Rachel has a background in drama and the theater so from the moment I met her I knew an old vintage theater would be THE place for her bridals.  It took some major string pulling and praying but we got what I wanted and were able to photograph at The Majestic in downtown Dallas.  It could not have been more perfect and I think it definitely goes on the list of favorite places to shoot.


Lauren’s Bridal Portraits at Fort Worth Stockyards Hotel and Station with her Pup Motley

Lauren married her best friend 2 Saturday’s ago on a VERY blustery and rainy day at OW Ranch.  It was beautifully imperfect and they made me get goose bumps.  Her bridals give me similar feelings, I love them!  On another some what rainy day we headed to the Fort Worth Stockyards for some bridals with a vintage, laid back country feel.  I loved her little puppy dog Motley she brought along and dressed him for the occasion in a sweet bow tie.  Can’t wait to share their wedding photos soon!

 

Meghan – Bridal Portraits at Stoneleigh Hotel & Dallas Arboretum

Meghan is an absolute stunner and her bridals kind of take my breath away.  We explored the Dallas Arboretum then enjoyed the Stoneleigh Hotel Penthouse floor.  The hotel may be my new favorite location with it luxe furniture, chandeliers, great big windows and overall perfect design.  Thanks to Tami Winn Events for the beautiful bouquet and her Mom, best friend and Aunts who joined us and made me laugh and helped during the session.

Caitlyn – Bridal Portraits at McKinney Cotton Mill

I have one word to describe Caitlyn, WOW.  It completely sums her up and her gorgeous bridal portraits at McKinney Cotton Mill.  Her eyes are piercing and she has marvelous bone structure as well as looking amazing in her gown from LuLu’s Bridal in Dallas.  In addition to her bridals we spent some extra time together at the NYLO in Plano for Boudoir photos.  One of my favorite lingere sessions ever that I wish I could share.  I had so much fun photographing her and I can’t wait to share her wedding later this week.

Nikki {Model Bride} Chandor Gardens in Weatherford

Nikki was married earlier this year at Graystone Castle out in West Texas in a tiny town called Thurber Mingus.  For her wedding she wore a Bliss Bridal Gown with small floral appliques on the bodice.  I adored her birdcage veil and feather fascinator.  We photographed her bridal portraits at Chandor Gardens in Weatherford.  It is the perfect location if you want the feeling of an old English garden.

Lauren {Model Bride} Bass Hall & Fort Worth Club

Today Lauren is getting married which means I can finally share her bridal portraits!  I love this girl, she is all about the drama, big hair, fabulous-ness and Hollywood flair that makes me smile.  Lauren, along with her Mom and maid of honor, joined me at Bass Hall a few weeks before her wedding to kick off her bridal session.  I love when I’m able to have 2 locations at bridal portraits that offer different feelings for my brides.  Bass Hall offered the open, light, bright and airy feeling I wanted while our second location, Fort Worth Club, has that classic vintage drama I adore. Enjoy (I sure did!)
