Kahlia & Elliott’s Relaxed Matilda Bay Engagement Photos

Kahlia & Elliott

Relaxed engagement photos make me so happy and when coupled with a beautiful setting, like Western Australia’s Matilda Bay I am even happier. Captured by Louise Fowler-Tutt, Kahlia & Elliott hate having their photos taken and just wanted a day together to relax and enjoy. I think they did it rather marvellously don’t you?

Kahlia tells the tale of how the couple met. “We met in January of 2012 before the Australia Day celebrations in Perth City. We exchanged numbers and after this Elliott sent me some flowers for Valentine’s day and we caught up for a bite to eat .. the rest is history!”

Kahlia tells “I love that Elliot has the ability to take a photo pulling faces that only a mother should love, but, oddly enough these are my favourite photos of him (I have an album of them all stored on my phone!). When he knows I am cranky at him, he knows that all he needs to do is send me some twisted face shot and the mood is instantly lifted.”

On what he loves about his future wife, Elliott remarks “One of my favourite things about Kahlia …Kahlia has a unique ability to make things happen in all aspects of lives, which allows us to enjoy many adventurers and our busy lifestyle. She is my calming influence.”

The groom to be devised his proposal plan while Kahlia was travelling, she explains. “I was away for a Europe / USA holiday with one of my long-time girlfriends when Elliott decided he would pop the question. It wasn’t the best-kept secret because he kept asking what type of diamond cuts I liked while I was travelling. When I returned, he had booked a weekend getaway together, which I later found out was the weekend he intended to pop the question. Elliott evidently couldn’t wait that long and asked me the weekend before our trip in the kitchen. This was definitely a blessing because Elliott’s not so short “shortcut” to our getaway made for some tension on the first night!”

Kahlia tells “In six years together, our lives definitely haven’t been short of funny stories. With everything from one day receiving a call along the lines of “umm, your dog is on my roof” to … being stuck in a walk in robe for 3 hours until Elliott was forced to punch a hole in the roof and climb through the darkness looking for the manhole… we never have a dull day!”
