Kaycee & Joseph – Engagement Session at White Rock Lake & SkylineDallas, Texas

A little while ago Joseph made a big move in his life – as he packed up his life in St Louis and moved to Texas he had no idea what God had in store for him.  Shopping for a new home in Texas brought him more than a place to hang his hat – it brought Kaycee into his life.  Kaycee is a realtor and as luck would have it – she was Joseph’s!  I love that life brought them together at a time when neither expected it but both needed it!  These two are adorable together – their joy and laughter are contagious when in each others arms.  God has truly put them together and I am unbelievably excited to be a part of their journey.  Congrats Kaycee & Joseph!!!

Jillian & Brady – Engagement Portraits at Mitas Hill Vineyard in McKinney

Tracy Autem 2015

So excited to share this amazing session!  Why?  Well, it rocked.  Perfect day, perfect light, amazing NEW location and well, a super cute couple!!!  These two have been together LONGER than my husband and I.  Yep, I have almost 10 years with my hubby (and 3 kids) and these two are over a decade and just about to say I do!  That is some major practice in patience right there.  Well, starting out in high school, through college, law school and  more these two are completely in love.  Watching Brady just smile and love on her was kinda beautiful.  On top of all their awesomeness the vineyards was gorgeous.  Jill & Brady will be getting married here next year and it is owned by her Grandfather.  If you are looking for a vineyard location for a wedding in the Dallas Fort Worth area this one can not be beat!

Madison & Holt – Engagement Portraits at Dallas Arboretum & White Rock Lake

Tracy Autem 2014

Madison & Holt are getting married next July in Fort Worth at TCU’s Robert Carr Chapel and The Modern.  Although this couple attended Texas Christian University and met there they live in Dallas so we met up on a beautiful day for some engagement portraits at The Dallas Arboretum & White Rock Lake.  I had some scrumptious light, especially for mid day and we overcame the wind for one of my favorite fall photo shoots.  Madison looked amazing in her plaid and classic cape sweater and was pretty perfectly complimented by Holt’s sweater.  These two are easy in front of the camera, sweet to one another and just perfectly matched.  I am so excited for their wedding and to see what DFW Events pulls together for their special day!

Lara and Derek – Fort Worth Engagement Portraits

Tracy Autem Photography 2014 https://tracyautem.com

I am so in love with this couple and their Fort Worth engagement session!  I have been shooting almost all of my sessions in Dallas lately so it was awesome to be back over in Cowtown at some of my very favorite locations last week.  These two will be tying the knot in March and since I am expecting  my little one right around their wedding date I co-shot this sessions with Amanda from my associate team with Lightly Photography.  I wanted them to be completely at ease with her and get to know her as well as myself since depending on baby I may not be able to photograph their wedding myself.  It was so much fun to shoot along side Amanda, I could totally do that more often!  Lara & Derek met while at school at Hardin Simmons and from this first picture above you can see these two are totally into each other and that their relationship is full of laughter.  Mia, their pup, came along for their session and she was perfectly matched with little bows for their city photos.  I think she may have wanted the entire session to be about her.  They will be having their wedding at Piazza in the Village, it’s classic beauty but casual feel totally fits with their personalities and it sounds like they will be having quite the party!

Casey & William – Engagement Portraits at White Rock Lake in Dallas

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

Casey and William are getting married next June in Dallas at Christ the King and the Dallas Arboertum.  These Fort Worth TCU alumni met in college and started dated after they graduated.  Now they are tithing the knot and I just can’t wait for their wedding.  We met up last week on a beautiful day at White Rock Lake where all of their session took place.  It is simply beautiful out there and the leaves are just barely starting to turn and fall to the ground – so excited it finally feels like Fall!  Their pup, Oscar, joined in on some photos as well.  I had a great time getting to know the two of you better and the wedding next year is sure to be fabulous!

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.

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!

Kelley & John – Engagement Portraits in Fort Worth

Kelley & John are awesome.  I had such a great time hanging out with them and I am so looking forward to their intimate wedding at Robert Carr Chapel and Artspace 111 later this year.  Kelley is originally from Houston and John is a native North Texan but their paths crossed at TCU through mutual friends.  These two are full of laughs and I can see how much John cares for her because his eyes light up and he smiles HUGE when he looks at her.  Thanks guys for exploring some rustic and some not so rustic urban locales with me around Fort Worth!

Katie & Nicholas – Mini Engagement Session in Field and Railroad Tracks

Katie and Nicholas are getting married in just a few weeks and with their date creeping up I was excited to finally meet them and get them in front of my camera for a quick mini engagement session.  We headed to a nearby field with railroad tracks for some photo fun!  I loved being with them as they laughed throughout and I can tell how much Nicholas adores his bride to be.  They have known one another since high school and through the years they kept in touch and they eventually were drawn back together.  Definitely a good thing because I just like how they look at one another.  See you two on the 29th!

Katie & Garrett – Engagement Portraits at Dallas Arboretum and White Rock Lake

Katie and Garret will be getting married right after the new year in January and I was excited to get to know them and hang out with them for a few hours at The Dallas Arboretum before heading to White Rock Lake.  These two are sweet as pie on each other and it was a joy to photograph them.  Garrett is away at school in Arkansas right now while Katie is actually living with his Mom in west Texas before the wedding.  Soon she will  be uprooting to join him in Arkansas and I know they can’t wait to be together again full time.  See you two VERY soon!
