Shelby & Clifton – Ceremony at St. Patrick’s CathedralFort Worth Wedding

From the first time I met Shelby I knew I would enjoy photographing this wedding.  Shelby and Clifton grew up around Fort Worth and have known each other for quite a while.  They both attended A&M (Whoop!) and had many aggies in attendance.   The ladies got ready at the wonderful Brik Venue (speaking of Brik, check out some of her gorgeous bridal portraits here!) and then we headed to St. Patrick’s Cathedral for the ceremony.  Shelby chose some gorgeous colors for the wedding and the bridesmaids wore long beaded gowns that complimented Shelby in her dress.  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

Avery & David with their Grandparents – Holiday Portrait

 

Photo by Tracy Autem of Lightly Photography 2013 http://lightlyphoto.comI just love this family.  Right before the dreadful ice storm rolled in last week I ventured over to their home for this classic holiday portraits.  I photographed baby David a few weeks ago but this time around is was time for the grandparents!  I adore that they are so close to their grand-babies that they have me out to take portraits of them from time to time.  It was my first time to see Avery with her baby brother and I can tell she really likes being a big sister.  She played around the tree and it is always fascinating to see the magic of Christmas in a little ones eyes.  Merry Christmas!

-Tracy

Last weekend Elyse & Kaleb were married at the beautiful Ashton Gardens.   I really adore this couple and have loved getting to know them throughout their wedding planning process.  They are so loving and sweet and it was so obvious how much they care about and love each other and their families.  After the ceremony, we headed over to the reception where everyone danced their socks off, including Kaleb who claims he can’t dance.  It was an amazing day and an incredibly fun night and I’m so glad I was able to be part of it. Please check out some of my favorites from their Ashton Garden wedding.

Valentines Mini Portraits In Studio with LOVE inspired set and Kissing Booth!

OH MY GOODNESS!  These kids cracked me up, wore me out and sent me home smiling.  Last weekend my studio was filled with laughter and lots of cute valentines clad children for our themed mini sessions for the upcoming holiday.  I loved my Valentines set this year complete with a vibrant red and white Chevron backdrop with heart accents and a home made kissing booth.  It was actually really fun to make and I was super proud of myself for making it from some photo inspiration alone!  For a POP of color the AWESOME Tami Winn of Le Fleur Couture provided us with LOVE letters bursting with green flowers.  It was adorable and the perfect accent for our set!  These styled kids portrait sessions in Fort Worth are some of my favorite each year and I am stoked for the ideas I have up my sleeves for 2013!

Save the Date for Easter Mini Sessions coming MARCH 9th!  Last year we went bold and bright and this year we are going soft, subdued, yellow’s, grays, whites and pops of pastels with of course a live animal making an appearance!  Will it be bunnies or chicks???? We don’t know yet!

Mr. & Mrs. Kyle Belitz- Dallas Wedding at Watermark Community Church and the Filter Building





 

Last weekend Rizy and I ventured out to Dallas to photograph one of my favorite couples, Amanda & Kyle. They were married at their church in Dallas and their reception was at the Filter Building off of White Rock Lake in Dallas. It was a hot day, but these two picked amazing locations that kept us all cool. Amanda and Kyle planned such a meaningful ceremony, which featured a lot of help from some close friends who either read scripture, sang or played guitar. I definitely shed a few tears! After that it was back to party at the Filter House where they served some of their favorite desserts and a popcorn bar! YUM! I loved seeing little bits of their creativity throughout the entire day and it was so great hanging out with them once again. Hope they are having a blast in Mexico!

Mr. & Mrs. Bret Burkett- A&M Gardens, Azle TX





 

I adore these two. Bret & Monica are very dear friends to my husband and I and so when Monica asked me to photograph her Azle wedding, I was thrilled! It has been great walking along side these two in their journey together. We got engaged around the same time, and Monica was a bridesmaid in my own wedding. I know she had tons of expectations and hopes for this day and I believe it turned out just the way they had dreamed for so long!

These two tied the knot at A&M Gardens out in Azle. It was the hottest day of the year but they came prepared with water bottles and popsicles! The day was beautiful, complete with amazing flowers by Bridal Blooms, tons of cute bird-inspired details from Etsy, and Toms shoes for all of the bridal party! I chose just a few of my favorites to share with you all today.

Love you both, may God bless the two of you in your marriage!
