Big Sur Engagement Session by Tyler Rye Photography

We could think of every beautiful descriptive word possible but none would do this exquisite Big Sur engagement session, by It List Member Tyler Rye Photography, any justice. This gorgeous session is the perfect balance of utterly romantic and dramatically elegant all the while putting this stunning couple front and center. Tyler has done an incredible job of using his surroundings to truly create a one of a kind session.

About the couple: Jonathan, a surgery resident, met Taylor, a dental student, while at the University of Tennessee. After three years of dating, Jonathan proposed in Taylor's hometown of Nashville, Tennessee in March 2016. After convincing Taylor that he would be out of town for a fellowship interview the weekend of their anniversary, Jonathan surprised Taylor, who thought she was going for dinner with her friends. Under the guise that he was in town to celebrate their anniversary, he transported Taylor to his downtown hotel where flowers, champagne and a 2.5 karat oval cut diamond engagement ring were waiting for her. After she said yes, the couple celebrated with dinner at The Catbird Seat followed by a nightcap at the Patterson House. The next morning we celebrated with friends and family at a surprise brunch. As the couple will soon be moving to San Francisco for Jonathan's fellowship, they chose the scenic cliffs of Big Sur as the backdrop for their engagement photos.
