I’ve come across the most popular Sydney wedding photography locations while trying to find hot spots for landscape photos in Sydney lately. Frankly speaking, Sydney is boring for landscape photography. We have an Opera House, a harbour bridge and endless blue ocean. That’s it. We shoot them over and over again from different angles:).
There are a few photography hot spots for us all to enjoy the best views of Sydney’s iconic landmarks. Whenever we go, they are always packed with photographers with tripod and people to be photographed, mostly weddings and couples.
In this blog post, I’m going to share the best Sydney wedding photography locations along with some of landscape photos I took recently.
Sydney Observatory Hill Park
This is a park located in the Rocks area, right in the Sydney center. Possible the highest location in the Rocks, the observation hill offers sweeping, panoramic views of Sydney Harbour and the Harbour Bridge for free. The public park is also home to exercise stations, public artworks.
It is a perfect spot to have a picnic, read a book and watch the day to go by. Here are a few of my favorite photos from a recent photo shoot:
Built in 1858, Sydney Observatory is also located on Observatory Hill. It’s Australia’s first observatory:
Milson’s Point Sydney
Milson’s point is located on the lower North Shore of Sydney. It is wonderful location to enjoy the best views of Sydney without having to actually go into the city. You can walk right under the harbor bridge and look at its amazing structure. You get uninterrupted view of across the harbour to the Sydney opera house and circular Quay. Luna Park is just a few steps away if you want more color and action in your photos.
We went to shoot Sydney Harbour Bridge at night a couple of weeks ago and happily captured the Luna Park in action as well.
The Blue Point Reserve is a phenomenal spot to have the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge and Sydney Harbour as your wedding photos’ backdrop. Some landscape photos and photograpy tips are shared here.
Sydney Centennial Park
I didn’t realise Sydney Centennial Park is such a wedding photography hot spot until recently. It was a beautiful Saturday morning and we saw 3 couple passing by within 30 minutes in Centennial park. That day was featured in this blog: A Day Out In Centennial Park Taking Photos.
