Kiara & Taner

I fall in love again with weddings each and every time we feature an engagement session and this one? Kiara & Taner’s Romantic Dandenong Ranges Engagement Photos has a lot of my favourite things. A love story of course, but with the backdrop of Autumn in the mountains and it’s fiery, rich colours. A table laden with flowers that looks so beautiful you could think it was a painting, calligraphy that acts as a finishing touch. Each and every piece of this engagement shoot has been styled beautifully to encapsulate the bride’s dream of “Enchanted beginnings”.

Qlix Photography teamed up with stylist and planner Miss Mooi at the beautiful Duneira to shoot the engagement photos of Kiara and Tanner. Stylist Stacey noting “Kiara being the hopeless romantic that she is totally believes in her happy ever after and has fortunately found that fairy tale kind of love with Taner. Kiara wanted to celebrate the magic of their love in a dreamy location similar to what you might find in your favourite fairy tale. It definitely called for an enchanting garden, a gorgeous royal tablescape and an abundance of pretty flowers with dreamy candles.

Kiara and Taner’s love blossomed on their many dates in the beautiful and picturesque gardens of the Dandenong Ranges, strolling the winding pathways leisurely while on romantic picnics. It was important that the location of the shoot capture the essence of their blossoming love story. Duneira was truly a perfect choice to capture the magic of their love and the beginning of their happily ever after.”
