I want to share with you what I consider the Top 5 wedding photography locations in Brisbane.
If you’re not having an imminent wedding (or photographing a wedding), then these spots are just as good for family portraits or swanky Instagram snaps to make your friends jealous!
Without much ado, here you go:
The Best Wedding Photography Locations in Brisbane
#1: Brisbane Botanic Gardens
The Brisbane Botanic Gardens are great spot with lush gardens, river views, and some stunning nearby architecture.
Parking can be tricky mid-week but it’s a great spot for wedding photography at the weekend.
#2: GOMA and the State Library / Southbank
For something a bit more funky and urban, the Southbank precinct has loads to offer for creative wedding photographers.
There is ample greenery, river views, large spaces for the kids to run around in, and some great architecture to give your shoot an edge.
#3: New Farm Powerhouse
An oldie but a goodie, the Powerhouse is a favourite for nearly every North Brisbane wedding photographer and family photographer. In fact, if you’re already working as a wedding photographer in Brisbane then I bet you’re already shot photos there!
The New Farm Powerhouse offers a great variety of large structural backgrounds with the park and river just next door.
The only downfall is you often have to share the space with other groups using the area, and there are also the Jan Powers Markets operating the space on a Saturday.
#4: Kangaroo Point Cliffs
Kangaroo Point Cliffs offer some iconic city and river views and also fantastic light at sunset turning the cliffs a lovely burnt orange. It’s probably my favourite sunset spot for wedding photography.
Parking can be difficult, and the steep climb up the stairs to the road can be difficult and time consuming. You’ll have to rule this photography spot out for any elderly or small children, or if the bride and groom are unfit!
(Or you as the photographer!)
#5: Wellington Point
Wellington Point in South Brisbane is already a favourite for Brisbane landscape photographers.
If you can overlook that (!), it’s also a great spot with a lot of variety for wedding photography and portraits as well.
You’ll find some beautiful old fig trees at Wellington Point which create a lush backdrop, and there’s enough beach space to get some great images of your clients exploring the shoreline at golden hour.
There are so many photo spots to choose from in Brisbane and South East Queensland. I’m forever finding new ones, especially as the landscape changes.
