Jillian & Brady – Wedding Portraits in the Vineyard at Mitas HillMcKinney, Texas

Mitas Hill Vineyard Wedding Cermony Reception McKinney natural light outdoor winery spring tracy autem photography jill brady-99

Mitas Hill Vineyard is so beautiful and I was so excited to steal a few moments away with Jillian & Brady among the vines.  Loved every second of this 15 minutes.  Mitas Hill truly is the most beautiful vineyard wedding location in the Dallas Fort Worth area.  Fields of grapes, a stream, dirt paths and beautiful trees.  A photographer could not ask for more – but I got it!  I had these two love birds in front of the camera too.  I am a lucky girl!  Check back tomorrow for their fun reception!

Allison & Michael – Wedding Reception at The Orchard, Azle

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

After a laugh filled ceremony this couple was blessed with what I would define as perfect light.  It was the right time of day with a beautiful natural landscape behind them at The Orchard in Azle.  I’m so happy we had time to walk around the property for these images, they are some of my favorites of late!  Allison and Michael are just sweet as pie together, so loving, so tender and full of great smiles and laughter – their joy is contagious as I was just as happy behind the camera as they were in front of it!  After using up all our light it was time to party!  Their friends and family dined on some yummy mexican food then danced the night away!  Sealing the evening with a sparkler exit was the perfect ending, congrats to a pretty fabulous couple, I know you have a life time of happiness ahead!

Megan & Casey – Mini Engagement at Eagle Mountain Lake Park

Tracy Autem 2014

Megan and Casey were married last weekend and the day before I  met up with them for a quick mini engagement session.  Casey hasn’t been back to the area since he proposed to Megan in May and as he is stationed with the military out of state the day before the wedding was the only time we could find so we could meet, get to know each other and create some engagement portraits for them.  We had so much fun with them last weekend, they are super easy going and totally in love.  You can see by the way Casey looks at Megan they are head over heels!  Can’t wait to put the finishing touches on their wedding and share those in just a few days.

Karolina & Roger – Engagement Portraits at Eagle Mountain Lake Park

Tracy Autem 2014

I am SO excited to share these – Karolina is our studio assistant so if you are a client of ours you have chatted with this lovely lady by phone or email countless times.  Well, in just a few weeks she is going to be the bride!  We can’t wait to photograph her big day and to see her and Roger joined as husband and wife.  It is fun to photograph someone you see every day, it forces me to stop and really observe and what I saw is how really stunning Karolina is.  She has killer eyes, full hair and flawless skin.   She is going to make a beautiful bride in her Bliss Bridal dress! Last week we met up at Eagle Mountain Lake Park for some engagement photos at this beautiful and rustic park. It perfectly complimented their personalities and Roger’s easy going vibe.  Can’t wait to see these two become a family as when they marry they will become an instant house of 6!  Roger has there gorgeous little girls and Karolina has an adorable little son. Congrats!

Tracey & Luis – Engagement Photos at White Rock Lake, Dallas

2014 Tracy Autem PhotographyTracey and Luis are getting married this coming November and I can’t wait!  Number one, she has a really cool name.  Now it might have an extra “E” in it but I won’t hold that against her.  These two are darling and sweet together and I had a great time with them for their Dallas Engagement session at White Rock Lake.  We explored some new spots and some old faves for their nature inspired shoot.  The relaxed and classic feel worked perfectly with their attire and personalities.  Best part, Luis loves her.  Yep, totally.  See you two soon!

Kathryn & Douglas – Fort Worth Engagement Photos at Trinity Park & The Water Gardens

Kathryn and Douglas are super sexy and amazing.  This couple has chemistry to spare, I could photograph them all day long!  They are so sweet upon each other and they just light up when they are in each others arms.  Little pup Ella joined us for a few photos with them at Trinity Park in Fort Worth.  The light was golden and perfect for their woodsy park photos.  Kathryn & Douglas love the natural vibe so for their second outfit we kept a little bit of a park feel in by hitting up the Water Gardens.  Definitely a little used location it was perfect with Kathryn’s elegant and classic black dress with lace accents and Douglas’ cool suspenders.  Thanks so much guys for selecting me for your wedding, we are going to rock it out for your Thursday wedding at the Piazza in the Village this spring!

Sarah & Michael – Engagement Photos at a Private Residence

I can not believe these two are getting married in TWO days!  We got together earlier this week for their long over due engagement session as Michael is currently stationed over seas with the military and hasn’t been in town in ages!  I was excited to finally meet him as I have already photographed Sarah’s bridals and had lots of chances to hang out with her.  We met up on her families property to capture their past and present as I know the future has many adventures ahead of them that will most likely lead them away from Texas.  Sarah & Michael are high school sweet hearts, meeting in equine class they shared their first date on horseback at her place so it was so fitting to be there to mark this next step in their lives.  I adore how Sarah melts and shines in Michael’s presence.  These two had no problem with my one major rule for engagements, dangerously close.  I love that!  There wedding Saturday is sure to have me in a mess as I know I will cry and laugh behind my camera.  See you both SOON!

Meghan & Cody – Upscale Engagement Portraits at the Gainesville Airport & Private Ranch Land

I have been sitting on these photos for weeks and it has been tearing me apart!  Meghan and Cody were married this past Saturday and we had been keeping this second engagement session in Gainesville a secret.  They were married at Bass Hall and Tami Winn and the bride came up with a unique idea for the entrance.  Red carpet treatment with a step and repeat and of course now playing posters.  For those posters we needed a spectacular image so we headed to the airport where Cody’s plane and a stunning red dress made for a dramatic image.  We also stopped by his families ranch land for some images with hay bales and open fields.  I love the images SO much and I just adore this couple.  It was a true privilege to photograph their wedding and I can’t wait to share photos from it in the upcoming weeks.

Jennifer & Chad Engagement Portraits in Fort Worth Fields, Train Tracks and Rustic Urban Locations

Jennifer and Chad met up with me on an early morning for their engagement session.  Chad is currently living and working in Seattle while Jennifer is living in Texas and preparing for their wedding and her move out West to join him.  I think it was a wise choice to move our session to morning as Chad is used to high temp’s in the 70’s and well, I think we started out the day at 80.  They were great with lots of laughs and it was good to get to know Chad.  I think we accomplished some amazing Fort Worth, Texas memories for them to look back upon as they make a new home in Seattle.  Looking forward to seeing Jennifer again soon for her bridal portraits and then their wedding at Arborlawn Church and reception at The Modern.

Ashlyn & Ben – Engagement Portraits in Fort Worth at the Stockyards, fields & urban locations

Ashlyn and Ben were super cute and the perfect end to a great week before I headed out for vacation.  Making their session even more adorable we were joined by their 2 children, Ashlyn’s dog and Ben’s puppy.  Ben made it very clear that Buddy was his dog and I must say that he may have been the best behaved 6 week old I have ever photographed.  Ashlyn’s Mom joined us as puppy wrangler then headed off to water and feed them so that the three of us could explore.  We love the doggie helping Mom’s, without them it would be next to impossible to have our best friends in photos.  Ashlyn and Ben made me laugh allot and I am so glad I finally got to meet them as they have been living out of state before recently moving down to Austin.  Ben cracked me up with some of his posing and silly faces BUT I swooned over their sweetness and Ashlyn’s killer eyes.  She has the kind we all wish for with the dark rings around the edges, they are two toned and AH-Mazing.  I will see you two again soon in September for your wedding at First United Methodist and Fort Worth Club!
