Hello & congrats on planning your wedding!!! Welcome to my Wedding Wire profile.

A little about me:



While fusing both my art and commercial photography background, I strive to create a timeless and unique collection of natural, spontaneous moments at weddings with style. I am a careful, unobtrusive observer, anticipating the moment and making the connection.

I have happily been in business for 10 years and earned a Bachelors of Fine Arts of Photography from the University of Washington.

I have photographed weddings all over, including Italy, Hawaii, Michigan, New York, Washington, California, Colorado as well as along the Baja coast of Mexico.

Based in Los Angeles and Seattle.
Available for travel worldwide.

I customize all my collections so please contact me for pricing and booking information.

The photos below are some highlights from my last few weddings. Please visit my blogsite for the latest happenings and current photos.


My motto is: “Live Passionately” and I stand by that 100%

Thanks & I look forward to hearing from you soon!



Live Passionately,
Nicole

It is hard for me to start to begin to review the wonderful experience me, my wife and my family had with Nicole. We came across Nicole through a friend and it was such a blessing. From the beginning she was the most warm and welcoming person. She made the whole experience such a pleasure. She genuinely cared about us and our wedding, and it showed in every facet of her work. She is very talented (I am pretty proficient with photography), she made everyone at ease in what can sometimes be a stressful situation, she turned the photos around very quickly, she was easy to communicate with (we live in TX and got married in CA), and she seamlessly took the photos that were the most important while seeming like she wasn't there. By the end of our ceremony and her time with us she was, so well liked we asked her to stay around as a guest. If there is anything that is important that you need photographed, you will be fortunate to be able to use Nicole to capture those moments.

Nicole did our engagement shoot at Disneyland and will be our wedding photographer in June. I loved the idea of an engagement shoot at Disney but was so nervous about having to look and be romantic in such a public place. I can be really camera shy, but Nicole made us both feel so comfortable. After the first few shots it felt more like we were at the park with friends than doing an engagement shoot. She got the photos and editing done very quickly, and I was amazed to see how stunning every shot was. She definitely captured us as a couple, and what's more amazing, was that it didn't really look like there were many other people at Disneyland besides us (on a Saturday nonetheless)!

Update: Nicole just shot our wedding. Everyone was amazed at how she didn't miss a moment. She will do anything to get the perfect shot and went over and beyond trying to get everything that I wanted though lighting and weather made it a challenge. Having Nicole at our wedding put me at ease. Nicole is extremely friendly, patient, and professional, all the things we needed from our photographer on a chaotic wedding day. We absolutely cannot wait to see the photos. She is simply the best.

We had our wedding a week ago and Nicole Goddard was a gem among our vendors. From doing my own research about her photography I knew she would be amazing, but I didn’t know how amazing she would be until I met her. Nicole travels all over for her photography, we were lucky that she would be returning from Costa Rica in time for our wedding day. We spoke through phone and email numerous times before the wedding and each and every time she was enthusiastic, happy, very warm, professional, reassuring, and extraordinarily knowledgeable. We arranged to meet at the wedding venue several days before the wedding and she looked around the site at the angles, lighting, and positioning of the site; I felt very reassured to see the detail that she was putting into our special day and the time she spent to familiarize herself with the venue. The day before the wedding we were stressed about the wedding party, but one thing we were not stressed about was the photographer we had chosen – I already knew she would be just wonderful. On the wedding day was when she really worked her magic, and everyone at our wedding party saw it first hand. Firstly, Nicole showed up early with her A-list team. My immediate family, who lives out of town and had not met her previously, were already very comfortable with her after only an hour. She was so calm and collected in the hectic environment in the hours preceding the wedding - she has a zen about way to her. She had already taken some important shots before I or our guests had even arrived. I loved how she methodically went through a checklist of portraits we really wanted – the bride and groom each with different groups of people; we knew before hand we wouldn’t be rushing at the end to get any shots we really wanted, she made sure none of the important shots were missed. What was especially impressive was that even though many of our guests were non-English speakers, Nicole was somehow able to really connect and communicate with each and every one of them. She was able to interact really well with our elderly guests, our guests under the age of 10, our American guests, our guests with a language barrier, etc. For our portraits, she took each one with perfection, in the right amount of sunlight, positioning people, quickly adjusting necklaces, their ties, their corsages, their hair, head positioning, etc – I knew before even seeing the pictures that they would turn out perfectly. I was so touched that she was able to connect with our grandparents and make them excited for the pictures. Some of the guests at our wedding typically hire the same people each time for photography at their events, but Nicole was so impressive that even they kept telling me how much they liked the photographer I had chosen, and many people asked me for her contact information after the wedding. Nicole herself had ran out of business cards on our wedding day. During the ceremony and reception Nicole was somehow able to stealthy get into the perfect positioning to capture the important shots. She would somehow appear, seemingly out of nowhere, whenever an important moment approached. She does a lot of yoga, so we think that helped her in the acrobatic work  By the end of the day, we felt Nicole was a central part of our wedding party, and helped make it a truly special day for us – and we can’t wait to see the end result! We plan to have her for all our future events and special moments.

Nicole Goddard is amazing! She is professional, personable, creative and very organized (which is key for a wedding). Nicole met with my fiance and 6 month before our wedding and we knew right away, she was the perfect person to capture our wedding day! Then, Nicole took another meeting with my mom and I. We all feel in love with her! During the planning process Nicole was prompt to respond to all my emails and phone calls. She knew how to handle a large wedding party (15) with large families and kids/toddlers (5)! We had a big wedding party. Nicole worked with 2 assistance, kept right on schedule, and never broke a sweat. My family and I were very pleased with how the pictures turned out. We are now expecting our wedding album and we got married on 3/24 - she's awesome! Post wedding, Nicole is very quick with provided final pictures, she is still available for retouching/questions. Nicole is truly talented and a pleasure to work with. We'd recommend Nicole for your special day.

Nicole photographed my wedding on 2011.08.19 and I am soooo happy with the product of her work. The photos are stunning and she didn't miss a moment. We asked her to photograph for 10 hours, from the morning when I was getting ready with my mom and sister, all the way to the end of the night after the band left. Nicole followed us to four different locations (hotel, chapel, beach, reception hall) and she photographed the best angles, best backdrops, best lighting, best EVERYTHING. I knew she was good because I had looked through her portfolio before asking her to do my wedding, but when I finally got the photos back it was so thrilling to see that my wedding photos were as magical and as perfect as I imagined they would be.

Something else I really appreciated was that Nicole works like a stealth. By the time we got to the reception hall I lost track of here whereabouts. I knew she was around capturing the most important moments like the speeches, first dance, cake cutting, etc. but it wasn't till I saw the photos that I realized she had been working like a machine the entire time. She took some really amazing photos of all the guests, of the band, of all the little details that my husband and I poured our hearts into to make our reception a little extra special.

Nicole is very professional, very kind and wonderful to work with, very consistent in her work, very organized, and very very talented. She was also very quick to edit all our photos and give them to us. We got over thirteen hundred in less than a three-month turn-around.

I highly recommend Nicole. After the wedding day is over and done, all that remains are the memories. Nicole captured and preserved all the best memories of my wedding day and I will be forever grateful!

When we first met Nicole, we were in the early stages of planning our destination wedding and were just being exposed to the myriad of choices when looking into hiring a photographer. We can say from experience, the process can definitely be an arduous one. Luckily for us, Nicole came highly recommended from close family and friends that knew her and the outstanding work she produces. Nicole, though frequently traveling up and down the west coast, made it a point to come meet us between trips so that we could get to know her and see more of her work in person. As Nicole said so perfectly, after a couple hours the three of us felt like we were longtime friends catching up over tea and cappuccinos! She had a great personality and charm about her and we knew that we had found someone that we would be completely comfortable and thrilled to shoot photos with.

The first work we did with Nicole was when she shot our engagement photos during the summer. Prior to meeting up with her in LA, we were brainstorming on a location where we could take some early evening photos. Nicole brilliantly suggested that we shoot at the Venice Canals, a little known treasure right in Venice Beach. The location was certainly impressive! Not only was it fitting that we were being photographed in a beautiful Venice-like location prior to our wedding in Florence, Italy, it was symbolically special for us since one of our first dates was on a gondola ride. Nicole scored double points on that!

In all seriousness though, the photos that Nicole produced from the engagement session were marvelous! She truly has an artistic ability to capture special moments, and the colors and perspective that are present in the photos were outstanding! That's when we absolutely knew the wedding would be spectacular and the excitement definitely kicked in! Not only that, but throughout the entire session of shooting with Nicole, she made us feel relaxed and at ease while having the time of our lives!

Then came the big day, our wedding in Florence, Italy! We began shooting around 11am and Nicole didn't put the camera down well after the sun went down - she gave an unimaginable amount of effort (alongside our spectacular cinematographer Ari Perilstein from Custom Made Productions)! Saying that Nicole worked hard and hustled would be selling her short; she worked with purpose, professionalism, but most importantly, passion. That's the Nicole Goddard that we will always think of when we see our wedding photos. It wouldn't seem as though there were enough minutes in the day to capture all the angles and variations of lighting in each location; but what came out in Nicole's final work was perfection! The photos Nicole produced for us have beyond exceeded what we could have ever imagined...

And while we think our photos speak for themselves, we'd like to offer our deepest gratitude to the multi talented artist behind the camera lens. Nicole, thank you so much for all the time, energy and precision you put into our wedding - you truly captured the spirit and joy of the most special day of our lives. We absolutely love the photos that you took and will always look back at them with complete happiness and remember every detail during the most extraordinary day, our lovely wedding.

We know that we found a lifelong friend in Nicole and look forward to many years of photographing our special events with her in the future! We would highly recommend Nicole Goddard Photography to anyone looking for an amazing photographer and artist whose passion is only exceeded by the incredible work she produces.

Cheers!
Jenn & Ben

Nicole was such a pleasure to work with and our photos were incredible. She really made us feel comfortable, was enthusiastic, creative, professional and worked so hard. If I were to do it over I would choose Nicole in a heartbeat.

Nicole Goddard is TRULY a photographer in mind, spirit, soul and body (she literally has a "hangover" the day after your wedding from working so hard!). I knew Nicole from childhood, but she photographed my sister's wedding as well with another dear family friend's wedding, so I knew going into it that she would be exceptional! Nicole was the most helpful vendor I worked with during the long journey of wedding planning. Before she even took one picture of us as a couple, she was attentive, always in communication with us, and made us feel really comfortable and gave us confidence we made the right decision in a photographer. Nicole is so down to earth that communicating your needs and wishes and wants to her feels like you are speaking to a very professional best friend, a great combination! We had Nicole shoot our Rehearsal Dinner and our Wedding, and it was really awesome to spend more time with her and get a "trial" in photos before the big day! By the time she met us at our venue, I was SO EXCITED to see her which made taking pictures before the ceremony FUN and RELAXING! It really allowed my husband and I feel free, romantic and completely natural during our shoot. The pictures turned out better than words, and I owe my lifetime of memories to Nicole. I will always be able to cherish she was present on our Wedding day, we are so lucky!

All Brides To-Be,
Nicole Goddard came highly recommended by my wedding planner, Kelly Demaray. Know that I was the bride who wanted a photographer who was someone that would fit with our personality and be someone that wanted to be part of our wedding party. I was also seeking someone who would not try to take advantage of me as so many do in the wedding industry. I knew what I wanted: (a) to not see my fiancé for the first time until I walked down the aisle (2) no photo album and (3) no enlarged prints.

The first time I met Nicole it was like meeting with an old friend. I have never met anyone so passionate about their profession. When you first meet Nicole you feel like you have known her your entire life. She is on it! Nicole scoped out the location beforehand and even our “play around” pictures turned out good (see the first picture in the sequence above). When we went to our reception venue, the manager shared that there had not been one photographer who had been able to secure a good picture in their particular venue. Nicole took the initiative to ask their permission to properly set up the lighting to ensure that we had the highest quality pictures. Most people would have used this as an excuse to be lazy and just get paid. Not Nicole!

The day of our wedding Nicole was most impressive. She has a way of being direct while being courteous and fun. Our wedding videographer shared that he was most impressed by her. My Mom repetitively said, “Your wedding photographer is the sweetest girl and I hope that you are in touch with her for the rest of your life, she is wonderful”. Nicole takes whatever is in store for the day whether it is rain, shine, clouds and/or family situations and makes it work. She is the consummate professional and has an eye for love, fun and intimacy. Your personalities will shine through your pictures with Nicole’s work.

After seeing Nicole’s work, I knew what I wanted (a) to see my fiancé in an intimate setting before the ceremony (b) a photo album made by Nicole and (3) an enlarged photo stretched on canvas.

Nicole will always be a part of one of the most special days in our lives and we recommend you invite her into your family on your wedding.

Congratulations on your engagement and making a great choice in photographers.

Nicole photographed our October wedding in Seattle. The photographs that she took are works of art...she captured the entire day beautifully and the pictures really tell a story. Every time we look at them you feel like you are in the moment again and she captured the feeling of the day from start to finish. I cannot even begin to say how talented she is and very professional. She made us feel extremely comfortable in front of the camera including the famliy and guests. She knew just the right moments to photograph and her artistic skills are impeccable. With our wedding party shots she would just walk along side us and capture the moment and with the feeling of the fall season and the sun shining through, her pictures made you feel like you were in a painting. Our wedding photos will be treasured for a lifetime and the final leather bound album that she put together for us represents a very treasured heirloom! I recommend Nicole to everyone that I know!

We used Nicole to photograph our wedding, and have received nothing but RAVE reviews from our family and friends about the quality of our wedding pictures. I have never for one second regretted our decision to have her as our photographer, as she really captured the most special moments of our day in an amazing way, and we could not have asked for better photographs. Nothing was 'posed' or forced, Nicole is just incredibly talented at capturing all of the true genuine (candid) emotions of such a wonderful day. We can't thank her enough!!

My wife and I were married back in 2008 and knew that we didn't want a videographer to be present at our wedding since all wedding videos become unwatchable except to the newly married couple (and that's even a stretch!) With that in mind, we needed a top notch photographer who would document our amazing day from start to finish and be able to tell the story through 'simple' photos.

We began our search and quickly found out that great wedding photographers are similar to a Yeti - meaning they are extremely rare to come by. And even when you do find a photographer you like, you're likely to pay an absorbent amount by time all is said and done. Our wedding planner told us to meet with Nicole so we did - and by time we left the coffee house we met at we were sure that she would be the perfect fit.

Needless to say, we hired her and she proved to be exactly what we wanted and needed. We now have over a thousand beautiful and flawless photos from the prep to night's end that demonstrate what we feel was the essence of our wedding. We love the book(s) she gave us a few months later, as well. Anytime someone comes over they become captivated with the photos in the book and the few we had enlarged for our home. There isn't a day that goes by that I regret not getting a videographer. When you have someone like Nicole and her team come in to capture your most precious life events, you can be sure that you'll remember it forever through her photos.

Personally, I was sold off of her website which demonstrates all her great work she's done.

It was amazing we found Nicole to shoot our wedding - she was a friend of my aunt's friend's daughter! We looked at so many photographers, but when it came down to it she was the most reasonably priced for the best quality even though we were from Seattle, she was in California and our wedding was in northern Michigan.
Nicole was amazing every step of the way. Since we had to plan long distance she proved to be incredibly responsive and timely in the preparation stages. Once at the wedding site, she blended right in with the festivities and we loved having her be a part of our celebration.
We were probably a wedding photographer's worst nightmare because we didn't want to do any posed shots, but only candid ones. Nicole did not argue or fuss, but almost lovingly embraced the way we wanted our photographs to be taken. She did persuade us to take a short session of just the two of us which we ended up being very grateful for.
The collection of photos we have from our whole weekend of our wedding is beautiful. We feel they really capture the joy, beauty and fun we had during the whole celebration! Nicole is an amazing artist and a pleasure of a person to work with and share such a special occasion.

My husband and I were married back in 2007 in Seattle and were lucky enough to have Nicole as our photographer. As one of the other posters said, you feel like she is an old friend. Photography was one area where we wanted the best and we found her. Nicole instantly connected to us and knew exactly what would make our wedding day special and how to capture moments on film that would make it memorable. She has ideas and techniques that I have never seen in other photography. When our guests saw our wedding photos, they were amazed. My sister hired Nicole for her wedding this last summer and we already know that we'll hire her again when my brother gets married. I would recommend her to anyone I know! She's fabulous!

Nicole Goddard did a fabulous job on our wedding pictures. She has a gift when it comes to capturing interesting and beautiful moments. Moreover, she is very easy to work with, fun, and professional. I couldn't have been happier! She is so good that my husband and I have decided she is our photographer for life. She has already taken pictures of our daughter and 3 months old and we just scheduled her for 1 year old as well. We love Nicole!!!
