Gold Coast Wedding Photographers

Wedding Photographer: Gold Coast | Brisbane | Sunshine Coast

Looking for a Gold Coast wedding photographer? Professional wedding photographers in the Gold Coast offer a creative mix of wedding imagery from documentary and candid photos to the style of editorial wedding photography published in magazines.

Gold Coast wedding photographers are mostly candid shooters who document moments as they unfold naturally. Editorial photographers offer slightly more direction during the getting ready and photo shoot parts of the day, and typically spend more time capturing the finer details including styling elements. 

The Gold Coast is serviced by more than its fair share of award winning wedding photographers with many of Australia's best visual artists residing in the coastal region north of Byron Bay. The Gold Coast also has plenty of budget friendly photographers and we have included studios that offer excellent value in our list of the best Gold Coast wedding photographers below.

Here's a shortlist of highly recommended wedding photographers in the Gold Coast - for all budgets.
