Sarah & Matthew – First Look & Ceremony at the Dallas ArboretumDallas, Texas

I had the opportunity to get to know these two during their engagement session a few months back in Dallas.  Engagement sessions are a great time for me to get to know my couples, how they met, and what they do for fun but during their session they kept asking questions about ME!  This blew me away and was just the start of getting to know their sweet and generous characters.  I knew their wedding day would be one full of laughter and joy!  These two chose to do a first look in one of the gardens at the Arboretum, and it was nothing short of great!  We had a lot of fun snapping some pictures before the wedding around some of the pretty places in the Arboretum.  They said “I Do” under a beautiful arbor decorated with flowers that one of their dad’s made.  The sun setting, the arbor, and the lush garden set the scene for their happy ceremony.  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

Brooke and Justin – Engagement at Botanic GardensFort Worth, TX

These two drove in to town for a sunrise session at the Botanic Gardens!  You wouldn’t be able to tell it was early though!  These two had so much chemistry and love for each other, I couldn’t get them to stop smiling even if I wanted to!  I can’t wait for their at the Lonestar Mansion this summer.  Check out some of my favorite moments from their session.

Kelly & Chris – Engagement Session at the Botanic Garden and Downtown Fort WorthFort Worth, TX

I loved getting to know Kelly and Chris during their engagement session.  These two met at church here in Fort Worth and love biking and being out in nature.  We chose the Botanic Garden to take some photos and then headed over to the water gardens.  They tie the knot this summer at the Historic 512 (also known as the YWCA).  Can’t wait!  Here are a few of my favorites 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!

Skyla & Aaron – ReceptionThe Orchard in Azle, Texas

Lightly Photography 2016This reception at The Orchard was a blast.  After some very heartwarming toasts, the couple brought out their dance moves and had a great time on the dance floor.  Right around sunset time I was able to steal them away for some fun outdoor portraits in front of a fountain and the venue.  Skyla and Aaron were such a great couple and made the evening so fun.  Congratulations to this sweet couple!

Parker is One & Family Portraits at Nature PondFort Worth, TX

Tracy Autem 2015

This small fry is ONE!  Parker isn’t so small anymore as I was lucky to celebrate his big FIRST birthday with him last week.  It was so neat that Mom scheduled the photo shoot for his actual birthday so we ate cake, made a mess, played with balloons and ran all over the place!  Parker is walking, smiling big, getting excited about life and starting to talk.  I am just so proud of him and all he has learned this year!  So glad Mom and Dad were able to jump into some photos with their little man.  With all the May rain one of my favorite parks has a pond that is overflowing but simply stunning right now!

Happy Birthday!

-Tracy
