A Wedding to remember

Narrating photographic stories with Alister Randell Wedding & Event Photographer

Alister Randell is a Gold Coast wedding photographer with  experience narrating photographic stories. From Brisbane to Byron Bay and beyond, every photo has a story to tell. Whether it’s a wedding, engagement, anniversary, portrait or commercial shoot, there is a unique way to document the day. With a passion for documentary style photography, Alister Randell observes and captures the intricate moments of your wedding or event to create a story without words.

A wedding is not just the exchange of rings and a party afterwards. It’s a commitment of two becoming one. The wedding shoes still in their boxes, pristine gifts on the table, the cake arriving at the door, the first light touching her face as the makeup artist begin. These are just a few of the poignant moments that tell the story of your beautiful wedding.

Narrating photographic stories means understanding that the story does not begin when the camera arrives. It begins with real people, real memories and raw emotions which set the background for what is to come. The stories are yours, so a good photographer doesn’t write them, he simply tells them through photographs. Alister Randell’s wedding photography is unique because he weaves moments together to create a seamless story. Meeting the couple beforehand, listening to their memories, sensing their style and understanding how they communicate with one another is key to his success.

With Alister Randell photography, you only need to focus on one thing. Enjoying your beautiful day. No posed photos, no fake smiles and no awkward photographer. Just stunning, real photographs that will capture your memories for years to come.


Words can't describe this mans passion and love for his job. Absolute legend.. made everyone feel relaxed and easily fit in with the both groomsmen and bridesmaids prior to the wedding, making it easy for photos with both being so relaxed. Would and have recommended him to anyone for any event, especially your special day.

"Our recent family photo shoot with Alister was a huge success. The process was fun and lighthearted, resulting in natural photos that reflect our family. Alister's friendly and warm personality put everyone at ease. We were amazed at how our normally shy three year old warmed instantly to him. I would highly recommend Alister to anyone looking for quality family photographer"
