Allison and Logan – Wedding Reception at Piazza on the GreenMcKinney, TX

And the magic continues!!  Allison and Logan were introduced into their reception and went straight into their first dance as husband and wife.  Sticking with this Disney theme that we’ve started, it was like the ballroom scene right out of Beauty & The Beast with all of the warm lighting and chandeliers.  A true fairy tale moment!  They danced all night long and at one point Logan and his groomsmen did a surprise dance to the YMCA.  It was truly an enchanting night and I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter couple.  Thanks Allison and Logan for choosing me to capture your special day!

Allison and Logan – First Look and Wedding Ceremony at Piazza on the GreenMcKinney, TX

When I think of Allison & Logan I think of the perfect couple comparable to a Disney prince and princess, so it was incredibly fitting that when I showed up to the venue that Allison was wearing her Mini Mouse house shoes.  I almost expected little woodland creatures to come and help her put on her wedding dress!   She was so incredibly excited and just full of joy and absolutely radiant!  When I asked what Disney couple they would most relate to, she said Anna and Krsitoff from Frozen and I can totally see it!  Their first look may have been a little windy but they were just too precious and so happy to see each other that a little wind was nothing.  They are just the kind of people that you can’t help but smile when you’re around them!  Their happiness is definitely contagious and you could tell during the ceremony how true that really is.  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their first look and ceremony – you won’t be able to keep yourself from grinning!

Janey and Collin – Engagement Session at Dallas Arboretum and White Rock LakeDallas, TX

With all of the threat of rain and having to reschedule once before, I was a little worried we would have to postpone again!  Luckily everything cleared and up and I met up with Janey and Collin at the Arboretum and it was a beautiful day!  I loved getting to hang out with these two.  They are the cutest and so incredibly happy.  It is a difficult thing not to smile when you are around them! Their love and happiness is definitely infections, my face hurt after their session from all of the smiling!  After the Arboretum, we headed over to White Rock Lake which is where Collin proposed to Janey when he told her that he wanted to take her to look at a sailboat.  Janey and Collin are a genuinely sweet couple and I am beyond excited to photograph their wedding this September!

Jess and Bobby – Engagement Session at Globe Life ParkArlington, TX

ATTENTION ALL BASEBALL FANS!!!  It is finally baseball season and with Jess and Bobby there was no other place than the Texas Rangers Stadium (Globe Life Park) for their engagement portraits.  Bobby proposed to Jess during a tour of the stadium, so I loved that they wanted to have their photos done there.  Being a big baseball fan myself, this was such a treat!  Not only are Jess and Bobby big Rangers fans, but they are the sweetest and kindest people! They are so much fun to be around and we had a blast hanging out around the empty stadium.  Our tour guide, Dick, also provided us with a fun time, a little Rangers history and added entertainment!  If you haven’t taken a tour, you definitely should!  I think the ballpark might be one of my favorite places to photograph.  Congratulations to Jess and Bobby!  Hope to you see you at a game soon! (Also, a special shout out to the tour coordinator, Billie, at the ball park!  She was absolutely wonderful to work with!)

Stephanie and Patrick – Engagement Session at The Dallas Arboretum and White Rock LakeDallas, TX

I am so excited to share Stephanie and Patrick’s engagement session!  I met up with these two at the Dallas Arboretum for the first part of their session.  We thought we were going to have bad weather, but luckily the sun started to pop out as we started and it was absolutely gorgeous by the time we got to the lake.  Stephanie is a TCU Horned Frog like me and Patrick has just moved here to Texas from New York, and I have never been so aware of how many times I say the word, Y’all.  I love when I can joke and poke fun with my couples.  It makes everything just a little bit more fun!  Stephanie and Patrick will be getting married in September and I can’t wait!

Erica & Andrew – Engagement SessionDowntown and Kimbell Art Museum, Fort Worth, TX

Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightllyphoto.com

I was fortunate to spend not only one evening, but two with this sweet couple.  After exploring the downtown area we were confronted with a nasty looking storm and had to reschedule our other half of the session.  Crazy Texas weather!  I didn’t mind one bit, however, since this couple was so fun and easy going.  We continued our session another day at the Kimbell Art museum and had the whole place to ourselves.  I can’t wait to photograph their upcoming wedding and work with some great vendors!

Josephine is ONE – Family portraits at Eagle Mountain Lake Park

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

So excited about this little girl and her sweet Mommy & Daddy!  This was my first time to meet this family as they just recently moved back to the area with their little angel and she is celebrating turning ONE!  I love her name, It is the name of my own daughter we are expecting in March so of course I was smitten from the moment I met her.  Little Josie is just in love with her Daddy and he makes her laugh and smile from ear to ear!  Thanks for coming out for our fall mini’s and we hope to see you guys again so we can watch this little one grow into a BIG girl!

Meghan and Clark – Wedding Reception at Event 1013 in Plano

 

Lightly Photography 2014 http://lightllyphoto.com

 

After the ceremony we headed back to the park for a couple of cool sunset/night portraits.  Meghan and Clark were dying to party though, so once they were introduced and had some very thoughtful toasts, it was time to get down on the dance floor.  And that is exactly what they did.  They, along with their guests, partied and danced all night long to the sounds of the talented Luke Wade and No Civilians band.  They were awesome and rocked out the rest of the evening. Please enjoy some of my favorites from their reception.

Jenna & Jonathan Wedding at Bella Donna Chapel and Stonebridge Ranch Country Club

 

 

Jenna & Jonathan were married this past weekend at the beautiful Bella Donna Chapel in McKinney.  They had just recently taken a trip to Israel and were actually officially married there first but still wanted their friends and family to be able to be part of their day.  We then moved on to Stonebridge Ranch Country Club for the reception, where they enjoyed getting to talk with their guests and also do some dancing!  Please take a look at some of my favorites from their beautiful wedding.
