Classic, Elegant & Simple | An Autumn, Seattle Wedding Celebration | Anne + Brian

Posted by on Nov 30, 2009 in . Weddings . | One Comment

My first time meeting Brian, the groom, was minutes before he saw his stunning bride, Anne. He was calm, collective & cool; anticipating their first glance in front of the Alexis Hotel downtown Seattle. I set-up the first glance alongside the hotel making sure it was clear of people. I absolutely LOVE this moment. It’s a time when brides & grooms can have an intimate moment seeing each other for the very first time on their wedding day. They can exchange sweet, loving words and even have time to shed a few tears of joy during this once in a lifetime moment. And, during this, there aren’t 200 set of eyes of them, just me from afar with a long lens capturing every second. Anne and Brian’s expressions were transparent of the love they have for each other, not just during their first glance, but also throughout the entire day.

The rest of day unfolded beautifully, full of smiles & sunshine. It was brisk fall day, October 10, 2009. The autumn colors were beaming of reds, oranges and yellows which perfectly tied into the wedding day color scheme. We took the ‘formal’ shots of the wedding party near the Seattle iconic Kerry Park and met the family at the most beautiful Catholic Church called Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in the University District followed by their lovely ceremony. The reception was held at The Canal in Ballard!  So much fun. A special thanks to Melissa Parker with Amazing Events and my amazing photography assistant, Amber Brickman.

Congrats Anne and Brian!! I had such awonderful time capturing your wedding.

Sweet Family in the Park

Posted by on Nov 17, 2009 in .Families.|.Little ones. | No Comments

Yesterday I photographed the sweet Goldstein Family at Douglas Park in Santa Monica. It was a gorgeous Sunday and the Goldsteins looked awesome.  We fed some ducks, made silly faces, climbed some trees and tried to make a cute, little baby giggle. At the end of our photo session, Aiden, 4 years old, helped me take apart my camera and he said, “Hey, your camera breaks.”  This definitely gave me a good laugh. Oh, the things 4 years olds say– gotta love it! Thanks for a very fun shoot, Goldstein Family.  Looking forward to photoshoot #3 with you! 01_26_110509_NicoleGoddard_Aiden 14_31_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8571_reilly 02_29_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8551_aiden_tree 10_15_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8253_family 04_05_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8090_aiden_pond 08_23_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8498_aiden 05_03_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8076_park_aiden 07_21_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8480_aiden_Park 06_04_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8080_aiden 09_22_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8488_park_aiden 11_14_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8226_family 12_35_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8611_family_tree 15_20_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8472_reilly_melanie 17_17_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8351_Reilly 19_28_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8533 21_01_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8065 23_06_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8102 24_07_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8134 25_08_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8138 26_09_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8145 27_10_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8149 28_11_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8158 29_16_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8310 22_02_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8072 30_13_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8190 16_33_091115_NicoleGoddard_MG_8597_Aiden

Commercial Photoshoot : Solar Panels Tearsheet

I am definitely a proud WEDDING & PORTRAIT photographer. However, during my off-season throughout 2009, I have traveled all over California to capture huge solar panel structures for a world-wide company called Sunpower. The global, photography production company, OnRequest Images has hired me for 8 shoots so far and I couldn’t be happier with all the results. I have climbed 55 ft ladders, operated 60′ cherry pickers, climbed on uneven rooftops and drove many, many miles to document these amazing solar panels. Slowly but surely, my fear of heights are dissipating. I’ve come to love photographing Solar Panels. I feel like I am part of the clean energy movement and that, I tell ya, is very satisfying. Plus, there’s something so calm about being 60 feet high surrounded by the nature. Here are some scans of  tearsheets and a few shots of me in action!

Scans of Tear Sheets:

Below are the behind-the-scenes of me in action! Who would have guessed a wedding photographer is now also shooting Solar Panels. I really love the diversity!
