If you are considering having a beach wedding or along the Australian coastline, the featured weddings below will provide inspiration for beach wedding photos.
The natural environment is one of my favourite locations for wedding photos. The wide open spaces, the beach at sunset, with sand between your toes, surf crashing and the textures of the rocks along the coastline. The Australian East Coast is littered with some of the best beaches in the world, naturally painting a beautiful backdrop for your wedding photography at the beach.
Beach & coastal weddings tend to appeal to those that like a laid-back lifestyle, beach culture and enjoy being in the great outdoors.
Australia offers some of the best beachfront wedding venues, from The Northern Beaches to Cronulla and the South Coast of NSW. Along the Northern NSW coast from Byron Bay to the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, all offer some of the most popular destination wedding locations. And because I was a Brisbane wedding photographer for 8 years before moving back to Sydney, I do shoot all up and down the East Coast of Australia including NSW and Queensland.
Being a natural light photographer, I am most at home shooting outdoors. Surrounded by soft sand, white-capped waves and blue skies, a gentle breeze and rugged cliffs. The picture of a beautiful bride and groom backlit, soft pastel tones and the newlyweds strolling the beach in the golden light at sunset make for romantic portraits.
My photography style would be described as a mix of creative wedding photography, fine art portraits and wedding photojournalism. The documentary style for the natural and candid photos capturing unscripted and fleeting moments. Stylised portraits, usually the romantic moments captured between the bride and groom.
Mostly, Im all about capturing real photos of couples in love on the day when they marry their best friend. That are honest, heartfelt and unique for each couple.
I also travel frequently to Brisbane, please ask about me photographing your beach wedding anywhere along the Northern NSW coastline including Byron Bay, Tweed Coast, Kingscliff – through to the Gold Coast and Brisbane.
Carrie & Daniel had their beach ceremony on the white sands at Froggies Beach in Coolangatta, while Tiffany & Steven continued with their beach wedding even in the wind & rain at Caloundra. And those amazing sunset beach photos plus you just never know what you might see in the background of a ceremony on the Noosa beachfront. I have even taken beach wedding photos in Phuket Thailand.
