If you are planning a wedding on the glorious Gold Coast, there are a few golden stars to be included in the images.

The sun and sea and beautiful sand should be there, as of course, should the golden couple – you! For couples planning a sun-filled wedding day, we have compiled a list of the best wedding photographers on the Gold Coast.

Wonderful wedding photography is not just about this one day – it is an investment for all of the times you will want to look back and remember. These are important images you don’t want to be lost or held the wrong way, and so the right wedding photographer is one of the biggest decisions you can make.

A photographer’s style is a very particular thing, but you don’t just want someone who takes an amazing shot. Look for the photographer who makes you feel relaxed, natural and happy, and who can bring the best side of you out in every photo.

Talk to your photographer before the day and make sure they know exactly what you want to capture, and they understand the story you are telling.

The best photographers will listen to you and be able to paint your love story with their lens.
