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.

Here is our list of the editor’s choice, Top Gold Coast Wedding Photographers

 

When you book the team at Wattleseed Collective as part of your big day you get more than someone taking photos + video: they’ll help you plan timelines, have a laugh along as you’re getting your hair & makeup done, they’ll guide mum on how to pin the groom’s flower. The Wattleseed Collective team takes pride in keeping everything together and on time right up until they hand you over to the MC at the reception.

Wattleseed Collective has 100+ weddings under their belt and understand the ebb & flow of a wedding day, meaning they’re always in the right places to capture those “real moments” without getting in the way.
