Engagement Photos at the Shelby Street Bridge with Aaron Yung

Keith and I had our engagement photo session two weekends ago, and we got our photos back on Saturday. I'm pretty thrilled with them... Let's just say that you all are about to get so sick of our faces! Aaron Yung took our photos, and I love his work. I'm not very comfortable in front of the camera, but his subtle directions helped a lot. And Aaron made the light look so much prettier and more dramatic than it really was that day.

A lot of women go into their photo sessions armed with a list of poses they want or a Pinterest album of inspiration. Not me! I went into it fairly blind, because I wanted photos of us actually acting like ourselves. The extent of our preparation was to: 

a) Agree that we wanted to take some pictures with our dogs
b) Choose our outfits the night before
c) Grab some books from our shelf to use as props
d) Joke that it would be funny if he wore a boutonniere and I wore a corsage. And then Keith actually ordered them, because he's awesome.

Instead of doing a lot of outfit changes, we visited different locations. We ended up taking pictures at the Shelby Street pedestrian bridge, a graffiti wall near Mercy Lounge (We first met at Mercy!), and at various spots inside Fort Houston. We wanted to visit the Natchez Trace bridge, too, but we got too hungry ran out of time.

There are so many photos, I'm going to break these posts up over a few days, based on location. After getting some pictures with the dogs at home, we started at the Shelby Street Bridge. The pictures of Keith and I laughing and reading together here are some of my favorites; they really capture what I love most about being with him.
