Sep 21, 2016

Please browse our incredible list of tried-and-proven locations that make amazing backdrops for your special memories! These are our most popular Sunlit Studios Exclusive Photography Locations, from the Sunshine Coast to Gold Coast.

Over years of scouting lonely country roads and back streets, we’ve found a stunning range of Sunlit Studios exclusive photography locations. Having spent many hours scouting these amazing location gems out, we keep them close to our chest – they are exclusive to our wonderful couples and families.

 

ORMEAU PADDOCK

Located 30 minutes south of Brisbane CBD. Two minutes away from Sunlit Studios!

We recently discovered this stunning, hilly paddock just minutes from our studio! Based convienently between Brisbane and the Gold Coast, and only minutes off the M1 highway, this is the closest paddock option for Brisbane families and couples. Long grass, rolling hills andlarge trees make it a beautiful backdrop. It’s also very accessible and free from animals, so there’s no fence jumping, lots of walking or curious cows!

A private paddock that has a gorgeous white fence, long picturesque roads and beautiful colourful trees. A horse or two may even stop to say hello! See a full engagement shoot at Wight’s mountain.

YATALA FIELDS

Country fields, wheat fields, cane fields and sometimes low-lying flowers. A gorgeous red-toned shed and a little pond give this area extra variety. Very natural, rustic looking but can be brown after a dry spell.

GOLD COAST BEACH

Located in Southport, Gold Coast (20 minutes north of Surfers Paradise)

Our favourite beach has such great variety! Natural greenery, a jetty, beautiful sunsets with an amazing view of the Gold coast in the background too.

Recommended clothing colours: Pastels and whites look particularly pretty on the beach with the soft pinks of dusk.

GOLD COAST PINE FOREST

Located in Rocklea, Brisbane (20 minutes south of Brisbane CBD)

This Pine forest is a mere 15 minutes drive from Brisbane CBD, though you wouldn’t know it! It’s hidden away past gorgeous country fields. It takes a brisk 30 minute walk to reach the end spectacular pine forest, but trust us, it’s worth it! We’ve had brides and young children even make the trip!

SOUTHERN GOLD COAST

Located in Snapper Rocks, Gold Coast (10 minutes east of Gold Coast airport)

Snapper Rocks, Elephant Rock and the surrounding beaches have dramatic rock landscapes that suit engagement or maternity shoots perfectly. The slippery nature and wild waves at these beaches make it less suitable for young children.
