Coast & Pines was one of the best decisions we made for our day! Vanessa planned almost everything in one way or another which. She was our rock. We paid for what we thought was a photographer and we got so much more than that! Our timeline was thoughtfully planned out and mapped with locations, itinerary and all the details we needed to make the day flow. We had brochure after brochure tailor made for us to help choose what venues we wanted for our meals and what location for photos. When an issue would arise or something needed changing, Vanessa would help in anyway she could and made me feel so safe asking her. We didn’t just get planning assistance- we got someone just as excited for our day as we were, if not more!
Vanessa & Linden work together so flawlessly and their photographs are art. We were fortunate enough to have them both shooting for us on the ground which meant we got different angles and lenses truly capturing the beauty of our day. We got Polaroids to take home, and even behind the scenes videos - these candid videos meant the world to us. Thanks to these amazing people we got married. Forever grateful for those we chose to have around us and will remember all that they did forever
"Vanessa & Linden are an awesome couple & team. They gave us such a fun and comfortable experience during our shoot. We were very much ourselves and it felt like we were hanging out with friends!
The photos they captured were way above expectation and the editing is amazing. We really can’t fault a thing. They’re also so sweet and easy to communicate with, answering all questions and concerns! Definitely book your next shoot with them if you haven’t already."
“We can't thank Vanessa & Linden for capturing our wedding day so perfectly. Their candid approach made for such beautiful and intimate photographs. They captured everything while letting us be present in every moment; the raw emotions, the tears, the smiles, the laughter, the dancing and everything else in between.
Their colours are stunning and the entire experience planning with them was seamless and thoughtful. Vanessa is extremely detailed, proactive and passionate about what she does; from their editing, to their couples handbook, they gave us answers before we even asked the questions! They are the best investment from our wedding day and we loved having them be apart of our special day"
"Five stars just isn't a high enough rating for this lovely duo. Everyone can agree that being a bride and groom during the pandemic was an unwelcome challenge, but they did everything possible to make sure they executed her role as our photographer perfectly, going above and beyond by being my go-to for recommendations, advice and occasionally just a good old whinge. Their kindness, patience and dedication is unwavering and unmatched by anyone else in the business. Oh, and having said all of this about their character, the photography skills are also truly amazing.
To be able to travel the world and capture love is one of the
most amazing parts of our job – we still pinch ourselves whenever we get the opportunity.
