As diverse as it is beautiful, the Gold Coast is a dream destination for photographers.

With the breathtaking settings of the Gold Coast spanning far and wide, couples planning engagement or wedding shoots in this region are spoilt for choice, with beautiful backdrops aplenty. The photographers who call this region home know the Coast’s picture-perfect locations better than anyone – which is why we’ve asked two local pros to share their fave images and why they love shooting on the GC and beyond.

Nicola Lemmon

“I love this Rainbow Bay location – especially for a fun engagement shoot – because of the direction the beach faces. It gets the best of both the east and west skies at sunset – beautiful golden light in the west and then the pinky purples in the east. In winter this beach is always really quiet at sunset – and afterwards we can head to the surf club for a beer!” – Nicola

“I absolutely love the rugged rock formations, open air and always amazing light of Fingal Head. It’s a perfect backdrop for a wedding portrait.” – Ryan

“There is so much to love about the Gold Coast hinterland – particularly as you’re always guaranteed an epic view and sunset. This image was shot on the hang gliders’ ridge on Tamborine Mountain as a storm cloud approached from the east. The timing was perfect.” – Ryan
