Aimee & Adam {Married Part 2} Romantics and Reception at OW Ranch

Aimee and Adam had some to die for warm light at sunset that we fully took advantage of before they headed off to party the night away at their reception.  It was such a fabulous day and here is there highlights reel to show off all the fun they had!

Eugenia & Michael {Married Part 3 – Details & Reception} Fort Worth Modern Art Museum & Botanic Gardens

The reception is when the FUN happens and it is also where we get to see the hard work of Eugenia & Michael’s team.  I fell completely in love with the purple motif created in the grand lobby and cafe modern by Philip Combs Designs, Dayna Tooley Events, Specialty Sound & MM Special Events.  The floral was smart and crisp and the repetition of the sliver branches that mimicked the sculpture on the grounds was ingenious.  The lounge furniture and purple up-lighting gave the cafe the ultimate swanky feeling.  The food by The Modern was delicious as always and Eugenia, Michael and their guests and a fabulous time dancing the night away.  The yummy cake was by Creme de la Creme.

Addison is a super model in training and she just rocked it and so much fun in front of my camera.  We played, climbed on EVERYTHING and captured her at this wonderful age.  I can’t wait to meet her big brother this Fall for his birthday portraits and some family shots for their holiday card.  See you guys in a few months!

Creel Grand kids – Children’s portraits in San Angelo, Texas

Bright colorful kids children portraits photos San Angelo Texas Tracy Autem

I am often out west in San Angelo, Texas.  It is my home town and most of my family still lives there.  I love my San Angelo clients and it is always fun to shoot in some of the cool urban locations that the city offers.  Peggy is a good friend of my Mom’s and I was excited to meet her 3 adorable grandchildren.  She had all 3 of them in town for the weekend so she wanted to capture them together at these great ages.  Macie & Camden are brother and sister and Hazel is their little cousin.  These kids were all completely unique and we had a ton of fun playing together in the morning heat.  Here are some of my favorites!  Can’t wait for my next chance to shoot some San Angelo portraits!

Stacy & Brent Engaged in Fort Worth – Art Museums and Trinity Park

Engagement Photo Fort Worth Art Museum Modern Kimball Tracy Autem Wedding

I told him to just hang on her and this happened.....perfection.

Stacy and Brent are getting married next month at Marty Leonard Chapel here in Fort Worth.  I met Stacy several months ago as she was beginning to plan her Texas wedding after deciding not to get married in Mexico.  This girl is going to be a wedding expert after all is said and done because she essentially planned 2 weddings!  I am glad she decided to tie the knot here because that means I get to spend it with them!  Her and Brent are such sweet hearts and I had a great time getting to know them and their pup.  See you guys in a few weeks on the big day!

Holly & Jason Engaged in Fort Worth

Old house sun flare fort worth engagement photos Tracy Autem

Loved this shot the moment I took it. So many layers with the sun, the adorable couple and the shadows on the wall.

Last week I met up with Holly & Jason at my studio in Fort Worth for their engagement shoot.  Holly called me up a few weeks ago and hired me for her September wedding so it was the first time we had ever met.  We hung out at the studio for a bit and then dived right into the shoot where I got to know both of them and Jason’s cutie pie of a daughter, Samantha.  When you get married and have kids it is about more than the couple so we always love involving the kiddo’s in engagement session, as I told Samantha, she is getting married too!  She is getting Holly and I know Holly is lucky to be getting such a beautiful young lady.  They are having fun country sheik wedding all in classic black and whites at their friends ranch south of Fort Worth.  I am so looking forward to it after falling completely for this couple, they were so genuine and tender with each other.  See you guys in September!

This shot and the next were Holly's idea, I have the best clients. We were driving down the road, one I have been on hundreds of times and she noticed the old tracks and the city and wanted to stop. Glad we did.

Bethany & Rob – Fort Worth Engagement Session

Fort Worth Engagement Photos Tracy Autem Alley Urban

Bethany & Rob live in Atlanta and are getting married here, in Fort Worth, in November.  They are super silly and just charming together, I am looking even more forward to the wedding now that we got to hang out.  When we first met they were not sold on doing an engagement session but once they realized my shoots are more about having fun and getting to know each other I swayed them.  Leading up to the session Bethany said they got excited because they knew that their photos were going to be different from many of their friends engagement photos.  We headed out and hits some of my favorite Fort Worth spots near the stockyards and the old farmers market.  They were the perfect mixture of goofy and affectionate and to me that is perfection.  Enjoy some of their cute moments and silly ones as well at their Fort Worth Engagement Session!

Jennifer & Shane Engaged! A Dallas – Bishop Arts District Session

This shot is SO perfect. Love the colors and them just chilling out on the iron bench. Happiness.

This week has been a busy one but it has been SO much fun to hang out with all my couples.  So often we shoot our engagement sessions in Fort Worth but Shane & Jennifer elected to do their shoot in Dallas.  It was cool because it gave me the chance to check out a few new locations like the Bishop Arts District and the Avanti Fountain.  We of course also hit some of my old but good spots in and around Deep Ellum.  Shane & Jennifer and getting married in September at The Piazza in the Village and I am so excited to be working with them.  Jennifer and her Mom totally impressed me at their consultation and man do these girls have it together.  They have done some wedding and party planning in the past so when it came time for Jennifer to tie the knot I think her and her Mom were full of an abundance of ideas.  I didn’t get to meet Shane until the engagement session but he is a super sweet guy and totally in love with his girl.  Here are some images from their fun Dallas Engagement Shoot!

Mr & Mrs Robert Haslam – City Club Fort Worth Wedding

Veronica & Robert were married last weekend and Sarah Rizy and I just had an amazing time with them.  They had a mid-afternoon wedding at St Andrews Episcopal followed by a sit down dinner at City Club Fort Worth were everyone had a great time.  I think by the end of the day we had all cried just a bit as it was such a touching day with beautiful and funny toasts, parent dances and just an amazing amount of love between these two families.  Veronica and Robert were high school sweethearts and have been together about 8 years so it was most definitely a day all had looked forward to for a long time.  Many of my couples have late afternoon and evening weddings but I always love early weddings as it allows for very different light through out the day.  Because of the timing we had plenty of time to snag some photos outside the church and off Lancaster by a historic building before heading to the reception.  We ended their day with a few photos as the sun was starting to set in a field in Fort Worth after the getaway.  Then Robert whisked Veronica off to a secret location for their first night as husband and wife before heading out on their honeymoon.  Here are some beautiful moments and romantics from their daytime wedding!

Ashley & Matt – A Dallas Wedding Reception at City Club

Dallas Wedding Photographer Tracy Autem City Club Downtown Red Sculpture

Fun shot outside the downtown Dallas high rise where they had the reception at City Club.

After Ashley and Matt tied the knot at Maple Manor in Dallas we switched up locations completely from garden to downtown high rise at City Club Dallas where they had their reception.  I always love working at City Club as their staff, food and service are just phenomenal.  They really saved the day actually as just days before the wedding Ashley realized she had told City Club Sunday’s date for her reception instead of Saturday!  All was taken care of though, the reception  moved to Saturday and it was gorgeous.  The night was jam packed with fun from Matt & one of his groomsmen singing “Gold Digger” by Kanye to the crowd, Oklahoma University Pride, and non stop dancing.  I know that everyone had such a good time and we did too!  Here are some photos from their Dallas Wedding Reception!
