Kayla & Neal- Engagement Portraits at Penn Farm

Kayla and Neal are getting hitched next year at The Orchard in Azle, Texas and I can’t wait!  I first met these two back in February and finally got together with them last week for their engagement session.  It seemed like it had been forever but before we know it will be wedding time!  Kayla and Neal met at The University of Michigan and when Kayla came home to Texas he happily followed along.  These two are perfect for each other and I so enjoy their company.  Neal brings out a glow in her that just makes me smile – I know on the wedding day she will be absolutely radiant.  To complement their ranch wedding we photographed their engagements at Cedar Hill State Park, Penn Farm – one of my very favorite places for its great light and vintage farm look.

Brighton & Chad- Engagement Portraits at Cedar Hill State Park

Brighton Chad Engagment Field rustic child country barn Cedar Hill State Park Tracy Autem Photography by Tracy Autem

Brighton and Chad are getting married in September at The Four Seasons and last weekend I joined up with them and their little boy, Blaise, for a fusion of engagement and family photos.  I instantly loved these guys as we actually met for the first time at their session.  Their little guy is just 2 weeks younger than my Gideon that I totally got where they are in life and all the challenges and joy they are facing as a family.  Blaise was a smiley little man and looked OH so cute in his fedora hat.  Chad and Brighton are great parents and I can see how much they love each other, they were so sweet to one another.  I know there wedding, designed and planed by Tami Winn Events, is going to be off the chain amazing, I can’t wait!

To see more of their photos check our their slide show!

Ashley & Travis – Romantic Wedding Portraits at Penn Farm

Ashley Travis Wed Portraits Penn Farms Tracy Autem Photography

Ashley and Travis were married earlier last year and unfortunately I was unable to photograph their wedding but I was lucky enough to be asked to capture their engagement portraits as well as these fun day after “romantic” style portraits in their wedding attire.  It is always so much fun to get to spend time with a couple after their wedding day with no time constraints or limitations.  Penn Farm at Cedar Hill State Park was the perfect location for their portrait with it historic vintage barns and rustic country feel.  It was great to hear all about their wedding and their adventures since tying the knot, can’t wait to see what they have ahead of them!

Kerri & Jase – Engagement Portraits at Penn Farms in Cedar Hill State Park

Kerri and Jase are getting married right after the new year so their wedding is sneaking up on us quick!  They joined me at Penn Farms in Cedar Hill State Park after my family mini sessions for their engagement session.  We had amazing light and perfect weather, who could ask for anything more?  They brought along their puppy, Will.  Will has played an important role in their relationship.  Jase bought Kerri the puppy and used him to propose with a name tag with “Will” on one side and “you marry me?” on the other.  I love it being the dog lover that I am.  Such a good idea!  Here is their engagement slide show and some of my favorites from their session!

Melanie Jane – Dallas Bridal Portraits at Cedar Hill State Park, Penn Farms

Melanie Jane married Dave just 2 short weeks ago at Robert Carr Chapel & Fort Worth Club so I can FINALLY share her country chic bridal portraits.  Her wedding was emotional, FUN and we enjoyed every minute of it.  Her wedding images will be released on the blog early next week!

We met up right in the middle of bluebonnet season for Melanie Jane’s bridal portraits at Penn Farms, Cedar Hill State Park.  It is the perfect location if you want that rustic country charm.  The farm has several historic barns, old homes and structures that make great backdrops as well as winding paths, fields and trees.  Could not ask for more, in fact it is one of my favorite places to photograph.  Melanie’s Mom joined us and we braved the heat and very random sprinklings of rain.  Melanie’s dress was purchased at Bliss Bridal Salon and her bright, textual bouquet was provided by Tami Winn Events.  Hair by Memorable Occasions by Monica Puckett.

Caitlyn & Chris {Engaged} Cedar Hill State Park

Caitlyn wins the prize for best start to a session, she greeted me with the most beautiful custom embroidered blanket for my new little one, Gideon Matthew.  It shows just what a thoughtful and loving person she is, Chis is one lucky guy to have snagged her!  They will be getting married at a private boys high school church in Dallas next year (Where Chris attended) followed by a reception at The Gaylord Texan but for their session they requested laid back, country and a touch of vintage.  I immediately knew I wanted to shoot at Penn Farm at Cedar Hill State Park.  One of my past groom’s is a park ranger there and told me about it and I had been dying to explore.  It was the most perfect place for them and we had a great time laughing and hanging out while taking some sweet photos of course!
