Gold Coast Wedding Photography: Main Beach Wedding Photos
Date: 13th March 2017
Location: Beach Opposite Sea World, Main Beach
I love photographing weddings on the Gold Coast! Maybe it’s because I’m from the UK where you never get the chance to photograph beach weddings, but there’s something about being on the beach that makes me smile!
And this wedding was unique in so much that there wasn’t a wedding happening! David and his beautiful bride were married in Japan and came to the Gold Coast for some beautiful beach wedding photos and I was more than happy to oblige!
We chose the area around Main Beach as it is rarely busy, and being a Monday it was even less so. There is also a beautiful rainforest area between the road and the beach which gives a more diverse option for photos! We started there and got some fantastic shots of the guys in their finery and then headed to the beach itself for some more open shots.
It wasn’t the brightest, sunniest day ever, and we had a bit of rain too, but an overcast sky means less shadows, squinting and harsh contrasts so I was doing a little happy dance as I headed down there! Of course rain means rainbows – which we were rewarded with – and umbrella shots always look intimate and cosy.
The guys also dragged their family in for some photos, and their beautiful daughter Emma was an absolute gem, smiling for the camera and stealing the show!
David’s Mum and dad hopped in for a few family photos, and as the sun started to fade we said our goodbyes and they headed out for a celebratory dinner.
Morning, Andy! Thanks for everything yesterday. We had a great afternoon!
