Maddy & Luke – Engagement Session In Fairmount & Trinity ParkFort Worth, Texas

I met Maddy & Luke early one morning for a sunrise session in Fort Worth!  These two were so natural in front of the camera and really fun together.  We explored some areas around Magnolia Street with old buildings and great textures and then headed to Trinity Park.  Check out some of my favorite moments from their session!

Annie & Josh are Engaged – Proposal PhotographyFort Worth, Texas

I love documenting proposals, there is nothing like the surprise and secrecy of waiting for that moment when he FINALLY goes to one knee  and out comes the ring – the tears, the laughter, the YES!!!!  This proposal was super near and dear to my heart though – this lovely bride to be is our very own Annie – my associate photographer and dear friend.  When I heard the whispers of the proposal and their coming engagement I knew that Amanda and I had to be a part of this very special day.  A little message on Facebook to Josh led to us helping document this emotionally charged proposal and doing some sneaking around to make sure Annie looked gorgeous.  I was so tricky I even had a reason for her to have her makeup professionally done by Fallon Farmer with Love & Pout Makeup and made sure she was super fancy!

Along with Thirteen Media we followed Annie on and adventure around Fort Worth where she visited spots that were tied into Josh & Annie’s courting and at each spot she had a surprise!  Josh is a big hearted guy (I am really super happy he is marrying my girl – I am in tears writing this!!!) and he exposed all of his softness for this day.  Not only did he take her on a scavenger hunt but at each location he had a married couple that they are friends with there to greet her, give her a gift and ask her a question.  Before hand Josh had Thirteen Media record him answering the same questions.  It was pretty freakin sweet and romantic!!  If you like crying happy tears for someone you don’t even know – you have been warned – watch the video below!  Our photos show the fun and the emotion and the highlights but the video that Thirteen Media created along side us really reveals the love that Annie & Josh have for each other, the Lord and their community.

I am on the edge of my seat in anticipation to watch my Annie marry Josh on April 30th!  Love you guys and congrats!!!!

Lauren and Akshay had such a fun engagement session last week!  The flew in from California and we met up at Avoca, early in the morning, so there was a definite need for coffee!  I can’t get over how cute these two are, and so funny!  They had me just cracking up through their whole session!  Lauren and Akshay met at UT Dallas while he was a TA.  He had plans to propose to Lauren the day after her birthday, but it turned out that she wasn’t having such a good day so he changed that and proposed to her on her birthday instead!  Cute, right?  They will be getting married at Clark Gardens next April and I can’t wait!

Crystal & Josh – Mother & Son Portrait in the Fort Worth Southside

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

Crystal and Josh make one cute little family and I was so excited to bear the cold with them last week for a quick session near our studio in the Fort Worth Southside.  Josh is no boy, he is a growing man of 12 and super sweet and loving to his Mom.  I can tell he has a fun life, full of sports, friends and a great supporting family.  Crystal – you have done a spectacular job raising him!  Also, have to mention they have killer smiles!  So glad we could document the two of you together!
