Chandler & Nic – First Look and Ceremony at the OrchardAzle, Texas

What a wedding!  Chandler and Nic are such a fun couple and I had such a great time photographing their special day.  These two met a few years ago and decided to tie the knot at the Orchard Venue.  Just as the sun was setting these two said “I do” under a chandelier lit pergola which was just perfect.  Check out some of my favorite moments from their beautiful winter wedding!

Kathleen & Dalton – Ceremony & Reception at Walnut Creek Country ClubMansfield, Texas

Kathleen and Dalton got married on a VERY chilly Sunday in January.   This sweet couple had their ceremony and reception at the Walnut Creek Country Club surrounded by their closest friends and family.  It was evident how much these two loved each other and their joy was contagious!  Here are a few of my favorites moments from their intimate wedding!

Cameron is 3!Generations Family Portraits at FW Botanic Gardens

Tracy Autem 2015

Always so happy when we get to get generations together in front of our cameras.  So fun to watch little Cameron play and laugh with her grandparents and parents.  I have adored watching this little munchkin grow up – she has changed SO much since her first birthday pictures!  Now she is 3!  She is fun, beautiful and a total ham for the camera.  Love you little one!  You are going to steal some hearts one day (oh wait, you already do!)

Veronica, Robert & Pippa – Expecting Baby at Trinity Park

 

Lightly Photography 2016

Veronica, Robert and Pippa are expecting a new addition to their family of three!  Little girl Charlie will be here in just a few weeks and we were so excited to get to see this couple again to celebrate this amazing time in their lives.  Pippa is going to be a great and very protective big sister!  We braved some wind for a perfect winter day and I loved the floral the ladies wore for these baby bump photos.

Ellis is TWO! Birthday Photo Shoot at Trinity Park

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

Oh my goodness, Ellis.  This little tyke and I played at Trinity Park last week for her 2nd birthday portraits.  As the middle child she was eating up some one on one time with Mommy and my team.  We sang songs, played with sticks, ran races and used up all the two year old energy this girl could muster.  She has such an adventurous spirt – I think she feels the need to keep up with her big brother and I bet that most of the time she it totally up to the task.  Ellis helped pick out her clothes, like most 2 year olds she has an opinion and wants to be heard!  She was all about dresses with pockets!  Happy Birthday little one!

Deason is ONE! Winter outdoor session at Trinity Park

Lightly Photography 2015 http://lightllyphoto.com

This little guy has the POWER!  The power of cuteness!!!  Deason is ONE and he is a total doll.  I am kind of sad to see his first year come to an end because I won’t get to play with him as much.  His Daddy brought him by to show off all his new one year old tricks.  Little D is ready to RARRR in his Baylor Bears shirt and ready to roll in his 1st Birthday little red wagon shirt.  We had to do a little playing with Daddy too as D loves to be thrown HIGH into the air.  And check out those chucks!  Like Father, like son.  My fave.  🙂

Jacob is ONE! Smash Cake and Family Portraits

Lightly Photography 2015 http://lightllyphoto.com

Look at this cutie!  Jacob should be in an ad with his sweet smile and styling outfit.  This kid just steals my heart every single time!  We had a beautiful and surprisingly warm winter day for this session with some oh so perfect golden light.  I am in love!  This boy cheesed it up for me and devoured his smash cake – like I think he would have ate the entire thing if Mommy and me didn’t take it away.  Good thing they were taking this kid to dinner afterwards – he is a hungry growing man!  Big Sister Maddie was a ham as always and given the chance would have totally stolen the spotlight from her baby brother.  Of course we had to get some family pics in – so glad Dad could be there!  Happy Birthday Jacob!

Meredith & Ian-Ceremony at St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox

Fort Worth Wedding St. John Baptist Greek Orthodox Ashton Depot Creme de la Creme It's Your Night Betsy Drew Lightly Photography by Sarah Rizy -0024Last weekend Meredith & Ian were married in a beautiful ceremony at St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church in Euless. One of my favorite thing’s about wedding ceremonies is when the person marrying the couple has a special connection to the couple and Ian’s father was one of the priests who married them. Another one of my favorite things when going through the wedding photos is to watch the change in the groom’s facial expression from when the doors are closed to the time the doors open and he sees his bride for the first time. In the photo I posted of Ian below we can just tell his breath was taken away when he saw Meredith. Here are some of my favorite’s from the first part of their day.

Katie & Leo – Couples Portraits with their Doggie, Hogan

Photo by Tracy Autem of Lightly Photography 2013 http://lightlyphoto.com

 

Sitting here on a snowy day it is funny that this is my last “makeup” session from December’s ice storm.  Katie and Leo were one of my many couples scheduled for that fateful weekend and finally last Saturday we were able to get together with their pup, Hogan. We picked this nature area right behind the Fort Worth Stockyards for their session.  The soft rustic feel and the bare winter trees were  so pretty and went perfectly well with this little family.  Hogan was very well behaved and it was great meeting him.  Take care you two and Thank You for continuing to work with us to document your lives!

Meg & Corey – Fort Worth Maternity Photos at Stockyards Rustic Nature

Photo by Tracy Autem of Lightly Photography 2013 http://lightlyphoto.com

 

Meg and Corey are expecting and I can’t wait for this little one to arrive!  Will it be a boy or girl???? We don’t know as this sweet couple is keeping it a surprise!  I know that makes the anticipation that much greater for these parents to be but when the baby arrives oh how much more excitement comes with it!  These two were married a few years ago and we just love that we are following along on this new journey.  It was a little BRRRRRR cold for their photo shoot last week but Meg looks amazing despite it.  I wish you two the best last weeks of your pregnancy and can’t wait to see you soon with your son or daughter.

-Tracy Autem
