Engagement Photography & Video Gold Coast, Mount Tamborine

We love engagement photography & video, there’s just something about it. The excitement of the upcoming wedding you can really see just how much it shows in the photos, the raw emotion & love our couples have for each other. Which is personally what I enjoy the most about what I do, capturing those precious moments of pure love & happiness. Its what we al aspire to have right? Surrounding myself by this creates a wealth of genuine joy & happiness for each and every one of my couples.  It is a no pressure, fun situation which makes for some great images. generally, with an easy going atmosphere I like to make this as comfortable as I can for my Mr & Mrs to be.

 It is also the best way to get to know our couples, spend the afternoon laughing while at the same time getting comfortable in front of the camera with out even realising it. More often then not we here the male say that actually wasn't as bad as they had originally thought. We have included a selection of our couples for your viewing pleasure. Contact us now & lock in your engagement shoot, We also have special offers for couples that book there wedding with us as well even if its at a later date you will get the discount of your wedding package, Winning!

We are open to any location but we have found a few that we really enjoy & feel that they are ideal for a shoot like this as they all have multiple options. The Spit is one of the Gold coasts most popular spots, with options looking both directions for sunrise and sunset overlooking the beach as well as the greenery inland. I also use this venue a lot for wedding photography and video as well.

Out next favourite spot is Tamborine Mountain Botanical Gardens, this is great for the couple that want to make a bit of a day of it and spend the day up at Mt Tamborine maybe have some lunch or visit a winery, Again the bonus of this spot is amazing gardens & so many different locations with different feels. I have been here several times now for weddings as well & I still find new spots I love every time I go.  

Our third & final is the Benowa Botanical Gardens this is also used as a wedding destination as well but is actually quiet enough to use as a regular spot, the lake is the highlight here with gardens & some interesting structures surrounding it. We suggest these 3 for our engagement clients as we know we will get at least 10 great different images from each spot.  

Engagement videos are only fairly new & they have dual purposes. I personally am going to be pushing more & more to do these as video is my primary passion as well as what I enjoy doing most here at J’adore. You can use as a build up to the wedding, tell people your love story of how you both met & the moment you both fell in love. Talk about how excited you are for the wedding & discuss some of the emotions that flow through you when thinking about the special wedding moments like walking down the isle.

Thank you so much for reading my blog. I love to know what your thoughts are.
