Goddard Studios Photography is a boutique of 2 photographers: Collin and Anna Goddard.
We met in Europe 15 years ago, got married, and traveled the world together until finally settling in Laguna Beach, California. Our extensive exposure to working in the fashion business and working alongside great fashion photographers, stylists and make up artists taught us a lot, and molded us into the photographers we are today.
We strive to make everyone look great, in a relaxed way (lifestyle photography), bringing out everyone’s true personality. We’ll use our fashion experience, creativity and humor to direct and compose certain shots, but spontaneity, emotion and images that are full of life, is what we strive for, and is the product we want you to receive.
Either we direct, compose, or capture those spontaneous moments, we are always there at the right place and the right time. We make sure the lighting is most flattering, we’ll scout tirelessly for the best locations, pay attention to details, and make sure (body) composition is right on.
It’s that combination that makes for wonderful images, with anybody, even the ones that think they’re not photogenic. Everybody can look great in pictures, and we have proven this over and over again.
Most importantly however, besides the treasure for life you will receive, it’s “the experience” that a lot of our clients tell us, they’ll never forget. This kind of feedback is priceless to us and make us realize over and over again that this is not just a business. We care tremendously about each and every client, and will always to continue to strive to be better and be even more creative than the last shoot.
Please make sure to check out the “Testimonial Page”, and see for yourself what our clients had to say.
*Our company has our name on it and therefore we take great pride in the work we do; we do not trust our work to assistants and “associate photographers”. All of our work is done solely by us, providing you with a finished product that we feel is unique as you are, and service that is unparalleled.

We chose Goddard Studios for our wedding for a number of reasons and are so glad we did. Anna was so flexible with working with us to craft a photography package that fit our budget but didn't compromise on what was important to us. We also loved the style of their photos, which were crisp and clean and showcased the personalities of the subjects. Anna had done several weddings at our venue before, so she was familiar with where to get the best shots. But most importantly, since we weren't going to be be meeting our photographers until the day of the wedding, it was important for me to feel comfortable with the photographer without the benefit of warming up at an engagement photo session. I found Anna to be so sweet and passionate about her work during our Skype meeting that I knew she was the one for us.
We did a first look at the Mission at San Juan Capistrano. It was right in the middle of the day so I was worried that the bright sun was going to be an issue but Anna and her husband Colin were true professionals and were able to make it work without any issues and took some amazing shots. Even though we hadn't done an engagement session, Anna and Colin made us feel very comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera. My husband hates taking photos and you wouldn't be able to tell from looking at the photos. They also took beautiful photos at our wedding at Casa Romantica.
After the wedding, Anna was super quick to get the photos back to us. And she was very accommodating with my requests for specific photoshop edits on some of the photos (for my own personal vanity reasons), which was appreciated. They took so many beautiful photos that I'll treasure for the rest of my life. I absolutely recommend Goddard Studios if you need a photographer. Anna and Colin are fantastic and it was so lovely working with them. Thank you Anna and Colin!

Anna has a great artistic eye, very easy to work with. Look at her beautiful work. She is published . I am glad I found her - made my day perfect.
I just received my pictures from Goddard Studios and they are beautiful! They made my flowers look amazing, and when a photographer captures details, that is something that is appreciated so much. Also, the bride looked like she was smiling at a friend in every photo, not something you see very often. Great job guys, looking forward to working with you again!
With the extensive background in Fashion Anna and Collin of Goddard Studios have had, they offer something completely new to my clients. All my brides and grooms that have booked them to shoot their wedding and engagements, have been blown away with the photos they received. Anna and Collin just know how to make people feel at ease, guide them, yet they don't like to pose anybody. They like to wait for the right moments and therefore produce very spontaneous classy shots. They are also very fast with the delivery of the photos which they make available online. The album quality they use is truly fantastic and Anna has mastered the art of the album layout with her experience in graphic design, therefore producing fabulous albums. As a wedding coordinator I need to be able to depend on my vendors; I can always depend on Goddard Studios to come through for my clients and myself.
I strongly recommend Goddard Studios to all my bridal clients. There service and professionalism is second to none. They are attentive to every detail, and their customer service is outstanding.
