Emily & Tyler – Getting Ready and Ceremony at the Grand IvoryLeonard, Texas

Emily and Tyler are genuinely some of the nicest people I have met.  Their story is sweet, special, and uniquely theirs.  One of my favorite parts of my job is getting to know my couples stories and sharing in their excitement about their big day.  The day was filled with love as they surrounded themselves with friends and family from near and far.  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

Daniella & Stephen – Getting Ready and First Look at the Worthington HotelFort Worth, Texas

Get ready folks for the cutest couple!  Daniella and Stephen are not only adorable together, but they are some of the sweetest people.  These two currently live in New York (yes please!) but chose to get married at St. Patrick Cathedral with a reception at the Ashton Depot!  These two got ready at the Worthington Hotel and chose to have their first look on the rooftop before the ceremony.  Let me tell you, I don’t think any of us had dry eyes!  We also had the opportunity to take a pit stop at the Kimbell Art Museum for some fun wedding party photos!  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

Kelsey & Kal – Engagement Session at the Dallas Arboretum & White Rock LakeDallas, Texas

Kelsey and Kal sat in cubicles next to each other at work for about a year before they started dating!  A mutual friend invited them to a concert, and that’s where there story began.  These two were the sweetest and I love their proposal story shared below in Kelsey’s own words:

We went to visit a friend and her husband in San Antonio and had planned to go to the river walk and Fredericksburg while we were down there. On Saturday morning, Kal said he knew of a neat place to eat lunch on the river walk so we drove down there. As we were walking on the river walk, he showed me a place called ‘marriage island’ (which I had never heard of at the time). There were rose petals sprinkled and our names and picture hanging from the tree. He got down on one knee and proposed. My mom, dad and sister were hiding out taking pictures and videos and surprised me. It was absolutely perfect!

Check out some of my favorite moments from their engagement session!

Carter Ann & Michael – Engagement at the Dallas Arboretum & White Rock LakeDallas, Texas

These two met in high school but it wasn’t until Michael returned from his deployment to finish school at Texas Tech did they start dating!  I loved getting to know them during their engagement session!  Here’s how Michael popped the question:

My family used to ranch out in West Texas and I have a cousin who still lives there with his wife and 2 adorable kids. We’re all really close and go out to visit any chance we get. As a little girl I’d always go explore the sand hills and look for arrowheads. We went to go visit over 4th of July weekend and we all went out to the old ranch to drive around. We stopped at my old sand hills and decided to go hunt for arrowheads. As we climbed to the top Michael pointed over my shoulder and asked if that looked like and old Indian dugout, when I turned back around he was down on one knee! It was almost 10 years to the day after we’d met.

Can’t wait for their wedding next year!

Bohanan Family – Fall Portraits in Trinity ParkFort Worth, Texas

The end of 2016 was CRAZY busy with family portraits galore in October – December.  We photographed so many beautiful families and now that Christmas cards have all gone out, been admired and shared we are excited to start sharing some of our fave families!  This family is a little near and dear to us – this is my baby brother and his wife and kids!  The live out of town so it’s rare when I can get these guys in front of my camera.  Over Thanksgiving we snuck off for a quick photo shoot to surprise our families with for Christmas.  Photographing the connection between parents and their children and all the silly laughter and moments in-between are the best part of our job.

Jessica & Sidney – Engagement SessionFort Worth Botanic Gardens and Dowtown Fort Worth

Jessica and Sidney were such a fun couple!  We were lucky and got not only beautiful weather but also fall color in December!  We started off our session at the Botanic Gardens and then moved to Sundance Square to get some fun photos.  Their sweet dog made an appearance as well for a few photos.  I can’t for their wedding next year!  Enjoy some of my favorite moments from their session!

Bailey – Class of 2017Senior Portrait

Tracy Autem 2015

It is so fun to get a beautiful young lady in front of my camera to celebrate her senior year!  Bailey is the cousin of 2 of my past brides so I was super excited when her Mom asked me to be apart of this special time in her life.  Bailey is a Senior in Kaufman and is a dedicated girl that is smart and sweet and looking forward to college next year.  When she isn’t working hard to graduate early she can be found hanging with her friends and loves to hunt!  Their family are also HUGE Dallas Cowboy fans – they are America’s team!  It’s a good year to be a Cowboys fan so Bailey sported Dak Prescott’s #4 Jersey for some of her photos.  We explored some nature areas and a bit of the stockyards for her photo session.  I loved Bailey’s sense of style and her gorgeous smile!

Congrats on your senior year!

Carla and Jason – Wedding Reception at The Ashton Depot

Lightly Photography 2015 http://lightlyphoto.comCarla & Jason’s reception was held at the beautiful Ashton Depot.  They and their guests enjoyed all kinds of different music provided by LeForce Entertainment, including some traditional Hispanic songs and dances like the snake dance.  They also serenaded their family and friends with a mariachi band!  After an amazing night of fun and dancing, Carla & Jason weren’t done.  They wanted to get some cool night portraits, so we braved the cold and headed down to Sundance Square in Downtown Fort Worth.  I loved being able to take some fun photos of them in all of the lights of downtown!  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their fall wedding.
