About Coast & Pines

Guiding you to your most authentic experience and documenting your honest love story 

For the non-traditionalists and adventurous souls

We work solely with couples who are after something intimate, authentic and non-traditional for their wedding day. We believe that there is no right way, or one way to celebrate your marriage. And instead your wedding day should be a true reflection of who the two of you are. Whether that means only following the traditions that feel true to you. Or including your favourite activities that the two of you love to do together within your day. Or ditching the rules all together, and creating an experience that truly represents you. 

We not only document beautiful elopement stories, we help guide you through the process of eloping and show you what’s possible! We take the time to get to know you on a deeper level so we can help you bring your dream to life and create a safe space for you to be yourselves on your day. 

From vendor recommendations. location ideas and scouting, timeline assistance, accommodation/venue ideas, to being your go-to supporters – we’re here to assist you every step of the way. We will show up on your day to support you, act as your 2 witnesses (if needed) and guide you through the scenes while also taking a candid, non-intrusive, storytelling approach, and providing you with timeless memories and imagery to cherish forevermore. We like to call ourselves, Elopement Photographers & Guides. We wear all the hats to ensure you have the best experience possible.

For the non-traditionalists and adventurous souls.

About Linden & Vanessa

We are Linden and Vanessa, two lovers and elopement photographers, who live for telling your unique and authentic love story. We love every kind of adventure – from the Coast, to the Pines and everything in between! We’re not just about showing up, taking photos and sending you a gallery, we’re here to provide you with as much guidance as you need and help ensure you create the most amazing, lifelong memories. 

We met through our mutual love of photography, and now together we photograph outdoor loving, non-traditional, laid back couples much like ourselves. We are most passionate about showing couples what’s possible for their elopement day and connecting with couples much like ourselves, who simply don’t feel aligned with the big and traditional aspects of a wedding day. 

When we’re not out photographing adventurous love stories, we can be found heading out on one of our own adventures. We love road trips, staying at cool airbnbs, going for bush walks, spending days at the beach. When we’re not on a great exploration, we can also be found at our local gym, going on a local bush walk, or enjoying brunch at our favourite cafes. We love the simple things in life, and that’s why we so strongly connect to the simple, go with the flow aspects of eloping.

Linden & Vanessa

Fun Facts

– Linden is the Coast, he grew up by the ocean, and it’s his favourite place to be. When he’s not photographing you, you can find him in the water, photographing the wave formations, surfing or swimming 

– Vanessa is the Pines, she grew up in Canada, a mountain and forest girl at heart, and will happily hike 10km to a summit anyday

– We are both obsessed with dogs – and animals in general really. Will never say no to an elopement experience with animals present! 

– We are extroverted-introverts who live for the quiet simple moments of life, but love connecting with like-minded people

– Vanessa’s more bubbly and silly, and will probably trip over every stick she encounters on our adventures together. While Linden is more reserved, but witty as ever and always full of classic dad jokes.

Approach to Elopements

We are both very relaxed, go with the flow type of people. We live for the candid moments – the moments where you may not even notice slip by. We love to let you do your thing, but are always present to guide you and give direction when needed.

We believe true story-telling comes through when we allow our couples to just be themselves, and they feel most comfortable to be intimate. We prioritise getting to know you on a deeper level, and create a safe environment for you to feel comfortable, be vulnerable and allow your true emotions to shine through. You will walk away with photographs that look and feel true to you.

So we will not only help you create an experience that represents you, we will photograph you in a way that allows your true personalities to shine through too.

Photo Gallery


Vanessa and Linden went ABOVE & BEYOND to capture our special day.!
“These two were super organised and helpful – recommended us the best elopement locations, vendors including florists and celebrants, and helped us out with everything that we needed to prepare for our day.

We’re very awkward in front of cameras but Vanessa and Linden made us feel really comfortable and I loved the fact that they didn’t overly instruct us to do any forced poses. Everything felt naturally guided and they captured our very “real moments”, which we absolutely loved. All my friends and families agreed that their photographing styles were not like any other photographers’ – they’re super unique in the best way possible!! Really love alllll the photos. We’re having the hardest time deciding which ones to print and frame! Haha.

Could not recommend them enough!!! They’re the kindest and the most talented human beings!!!! Wish we could elope over and over again just so we could have them photograph us again and again hehe.

Thank you so much again for everything, Vanessa and Linden! You have given us an experience that is truly unforgettable!”
Iris & Gavin
Vanessa and Linden are the best elopement photographers in Victoria!
“If I could give them more than 5 stars I would.
They made us feel super comfortable in front of the camera and not awkward at all (like we normally are). We had not one clue what we wanted or what our vision really was when we booked with them, they found location ideas with my inspo pictures and organised everything for us – they’re possibly the closest things to angels! They even went to buy us champagne and a knife on the day because we’d forgotten!

If you’re wanting photographers who are more like friends, Vanessa and Linden are perfect! Booking them as our photographers was the best decision we’d made!”
Melanie & Luke
Vanessa & Linden AKA Coast & Pines, we can’t thank or recommend them enough!
“I found their Instagram and fell in love with candid, documentary style of photography. It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before.

Vanessa and Linden go above and beyond for the couples they work with, and they are literally your planning/organising best friends. They were my elopement angels and held my hand every step of the way. No question was too silly and no amount of messages was ever too much.

They absolutely nailed our brief, made us feel sooo comfortable and we loved sharing our day with them!”
