Caroline & Mitch – Wedding Reception at Ashton Depot

Tracy Autem 2015

These night time shots kill me!  Like, make me jump up and down I’m so happy for the opportunity to make the dark look beautiful!  I think almost all photographers love beautiful natural light but sometimes that just isn’t what your day has.  In the fall/winter in Texas with the early sunset time it is often dark when the ceremony ends.  We take that challenge and love to create some moody, romantic lit portraiture.  I love this series of images of Caroline & Mitch in the garden at the Ashton Depot and out front with the lights of Fort Worth behind them.  The depot is one of my favorite venues in Fort Worth – it is always beautiful and the service and food there is just perfect.  Caroline & Mitch’s guests enjoyed the entertainment – from a fun caricature artist to the fab band.  A sparkler send off and on to the Honeymoon!

Caroline & Mitch – Wedding Ceremony at Broadway Baptist Church

Tracy Autem 2015

Caroline & Mitch were adorable and I am thrilled to be sneaking in this amazing peek at their wedding before the Thanksgiving holiday.  Caroline looks like a Hollywood starlet and the beautiful deep fall colors and greenery at this wedding just had me swooning.  We met up with the girls for some preparations at the Sheraton in downtown Fort Worth before heading over to Broadway Baptist.  I love this church for its beautiful architecture and gorgeous getting ready room!  We had a perfect day so we did many of the bridal party and family portraits outside the church before the ceremony.  When it was finally time to walk the long aisle Caroline was all smiles and Mitch was so excited to see his beautiful bride.  My favorite part of their ceremony was the moments directly after – where I caught this great image above.  As they walked out of the chapel they were hugs, kisses, closeness and lots of chatting about their days.  Those first moments as man and wife are always a winner for me.  I get to be present for something that is so private and special.  Congrats you two!

Rachael & Colin – Wedding Reception at Marie Gabrielle

Wedding Marie Gabriel Dallas Gro Designs Tracy Autem Photography-0047

After these two said I do it was time for some romantic portraits!  Marie Gabrielle Restaurant in downtown Dallas really is a stunning place to get married and I was so thankful the rain stayed away so we had time to capture these two love birds in the gardens.  Rachael’s lace gown and all white bouquet were simply elegant next to Colin’s traditional tuxedo.  We used up every last little bit of light before heading on inside to the party!

Gro Designs knocked it out of the park with the fabulous floral chandelier hanging above the dance floor.  It made the space feel extra special for Rachael & Colin.  Their reception was full of good food, laughter and fun as these two celebrated with their closest friends and family.  From getting down and dancing to the sparkler send off everyone had a fantastic time.
Congrats to the newlyweds and I can’t wait to hear about your Greece honeymoon!

Kate & Josh – Wedding Reception at Fort Worth Club

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

Kate and Josh with their “squiggly” tree above is a fave of mine form their day.  Driving into Trinity park for some photos of the couple alone Josh was excited about some of the trees so of course we found him a perfectly squiggly tree for a few photos.  I love the way Josh’s classic white shirt, bow tie and suspenders compliments Kate’s lace gown.  So classic yet relaxed for these more informal portraits.  After a few more stops including a urban park downtown and the historic post office it was time for this reception.  Glenn Roush had the floor full and the sun was still out!  It stayed packed all night as this couple and their family and friends celebrated.  We had some traditional dances, some guests who played with LED uprights and some late night snacks.  It was so much fun!

Caitlyn & Chris – Wedding at Cistercian Abbey and The Gaylord Texan Part 1, Preperations & Ceremony

Caitlyn & Chris were married at Cistercian Abbey with their reception at The Gaylord Texan in Grapevine.  The night before their wedding we joined them for their rehearsal dinner on Lake Grapevine at Sneaky Pete’s.  It was a beautiful evening with an amazing sunset and a great way to kick off their wedding weekend.  Saturday we met up with Caitlyn at The Gaylord for preparations before heading off to the Abbey.  Check back tomorrow for their romantic portraits and reception.

At the rehearsal I loved these photos of Caitlyn and her Dad tearing up at the slide show showing Caitlyn and Chris as kids.

Must get a romantic boat shot at sunset!

Jewelry + shoes = what all women love (especially me.)

Chris was a little excited about his groom’s gift.  Caitlyn did an amazing boudoir session at the NYLO in Plano the day of her bridal portrait and he was wowed and caught off guard by this special gift.

Sweet moment with her Mom showing off the handkerchief’s she had embroidered with a special message for each of the parents.

Father and son right before the ceremony.

Last minute preparations before the ceremony.

Married!!

Kendall {Bridal Portrait} City Club Fort Worth, Ashton Hotel and Dreamy Tall Grass

OK!  You have no idea how extremely hard it is to sit on photos that are just beautiful for months and months……Thank God I can finally share though.  Kendall was married last month to her handsome groom, Jason, at a fabulous ceremony at Robert Carr Chapel and a reception at City Club Fort Worth.  Long before her big day we photographed her and this delicate gown from LuLu’s in Dallas.  I had the best time playing, trying some new things and hanging out with Kendall & her Mom, Stacey.  We ran all over town from her reception venue to Ashton Hotel as well as a field with some tall grass and the sun in the most perfect spot.  I love them, she did too and they were a hit and the wedding and now you too can enjoy them!  Want to see more of this gorgeous girl?  Check out her wedding!
