Caelan & Jake – Engagement Session at the Stockyards and Fort Worth Park

Fort worth stockyards engagement session portrait photos park nature grass trees water tracy autem photography caelan jake-7This lovely lady is  my niece and I am kind of excited that she is getting married next July!  Although I will be at her wedding my fabulous associate Amanda McCollum with Lightly Photography will be photographing her day so that I can just be family!  Now I might help a little with some of the photos but I honestly just can’t wait to celebrate with these two.  It was actually the first time I have ever met Jake and I instantly fell in love with him and his fun personality.  I can see why Caelan fell for him.  These two met while attending college and living in the same building.  During one of their first meeting Jake jokingly got down on one knee and asked Caelan to be his bride.  Little did he know that years later he would be doing it for real in front of her parents and grandparents on a cruise ship.

 

Jake is a musician and is a member of a country band so we had to get some western vibes going for their photo shoot.  After a show in Austin and before a music festival in North Texas we met up in Fort Worth at the Stockyards for their engagement session.  After playing there we headed to one of my favorite nature spots with a beautiful pond and open fields.

 

Congrats and I can’t wait for your San Antonio wedding next year!

 

-Tracy

Fowler Family – Fort Worth Ranch Portrait Session

Family Photo country field couch vintage Tracy Autem Fort Worth Ranch

Love this casual photo of the family on my couch! I loaded it up and brought it with me as I thought it would fit with the feeling Lori wanted.

Lori works with one of my amazing brides, Ruth.  After seeing their engagement photos she called me up to schedule photos at their Fort Worth Ranch Home that very day.  I was so excited to get to know the fabulous family, see their home, meet their dogs and have some fun with them.  A family of 6 with 2 girls and 2 boys that are growing up fast.  They had not had photos taken of them as a group in 5 years and I loved looking at their last set of photos and seeing how they had grown.  They definitely needed an update!  Here are some favorites of them as a group, individuals and of course a few cute one of Mom and Dad.  I love couples and taking photos of two people in love, even if they have been married awhile.  I hope to photograph this family again soon and to be a part of their lives as they continue to grow and change.

Sarah + Evan = Engaged

I promised more photos from this fabulous session and here they are!  For those that don’t know the bride in these photos is my very own associate Sarah Bunyard.  She is marrying Evan in January in Grapevine.  Since she is a photographer we had to play around with some different ideas for her shoot and come up with something with a little more spice than a “regular” engagement shoot.  Evan and Sarah both love vintage things and spend tons of time antiquing together.  We thought it would be fun to bring that vintage feel into their shoot.  That led us to select the McKinney Cotton Mill for thier location.  The Cotton Mill is a great spot for those that want something with that open warehouse look, old machinery, doors and beautiful light.   On top of the vintage look we of course went for some classic casual shots and even explored downtown McKinney for a few shots in an antique store.  I love getting to work with fellow artists and Sarah is like a little sister too me so the shoot was very special.  Here are some favorite shots and of course their very loooong slide show (I couldn’t help it, I loved way too many.)
