Kyla + Thomas: Big Sur Couples Session | Big Sur Wedding Photographer

This session and location still gives me the chills. Kyla and Thomas have a connection that is so pure and real that you can’t help but smile when you’re around them. We started the day by meeting up on the side of the road off Highway 1 where we took a path down towards the ocean in search of McWay falls. The hike is only a short quarter mile but so many people miss this gem driving past Big Sur.
