Erin and Colby – Wedding at Hollow HillWeatherford, TX

They say it’s good luck for it to rain on your wedding day.  Well, I say it’s even better luck for it to rain and then stop just in time for your outdoor ceremony!  That is exactly what happened for Erin and Colby.  It was raining off and on all morning and they were considering moving the ceremony inside, but it finally stopped and it was absolutely beautiful! The grass wasn’t even wet.  Erin looked stunning as she walked down the aisle arm in arm with her dad.  Her dress perfectly complimented her outdoor space and her boots were just the icing on the cake.  Colby teared up as he saw his bride walking toward him and when she arrived next to him, gave him the cutest smile.  With a backdrop of green trees behind them, they said their vows and became husband and wife!  It was the perfect setting.  Then it was time to party!  After dinner, the guests made their way into the barn for dancing and cake!  Erin and Colby spent the evening enjoying time with their friends and family just dancing until it was time for them to head out to begin their new life together!  Congratulations to Erin and Colby!

Last week I got to spend time with Jennifer and Adam for their Fort Worth engagement session. We started at the Fort Worth Stockyards where we had fun walking around and trying to dodge the cattle drive. We then drove to Eagle Mountain Lake Park that has a great rustic country setting. At the park Jennifer and Adam demonstrated some dance moves they promised I will see at their June wedding at City Club. Here are some of my favorites from their session.

I am so excited to share there photos of Samantha & Alec from their Fort Worth engagement session. We started at the Japanese Gardens where we bonded over our love of Hibachi. We then went to the Fort Worth stockyards On the way I learned about how they met in school when they were young and that is where Alec decided to propose to Samantha. He surprised her when she was touring their old school one day and got down on one knee in their old gym. Here are some of my favorites from their engagement session.

Katie & Leo – Couples Portraits with their Doggie, Hogan

Photo by Tracy Autem of Lightly Photography 2013 http://lightlyphoto.com

 

Sitting here on a snowy day it is funny that this is my last “makeup” session from December’s ice storm.  Katie and Leo were one of my many couples scheduled for that fateful weekend and finally last Saturday we were able to get together with their pup, Hogan. We picked this nature area right behind the Fort Worth Stockyards for their session.  The soft rustic feel and the bare winter trees were  so pretty and went perfectly well with this little family.  Hogan was very well behaved and it was great meeting him.  Take care you two and Thank You for continuing to work with us to document your lives!

Ball Family at Cedar Hill State Park, Penn Farm

Jennifer and Phil were married several years ago and I was over the moon excited when we got a call from them for a family session with their little baby girl.  She is adorable and I am so happy for them to be welcoming precious little Madison into their lives.  Thanks so much for letting me photograph you guys again!

Brittany, Jason and Tate – Nash Farm Family Photos

Fresh out of the military Jason and his family is new to the area and I was excited to meet them and get to know little Tate last weekend for our mini sessions at Nash Farm.  Tate is right at 1 years old and a sweetie that I could take home with me for sure.  Don’t believe me?  Look on for more of him in his cute little cowboy hat for proof.  Love him and how much he lights up when he smiles and plays with his parents.
