About Goodnickels Photography
Hi! I'm Melanie, a San Diego wedding and family photographer specializing in creative, fun imagery.
Wedding coverage for 2018-19 begins at $1250 for 4 hours of coverage with Mel; you can add hours and an engagement session to create your own package. Two-photographer options begin at $1650 for 4 hours, so you can choose and customize the right coverage for your big day. You'll receive an online proofing/purchasing gallery and digital download of all final, high-res photos.
Simply put, I love photography. (And you should if it's your job, right?) My husband, Phill, and I had both photographed for fun for much of our youth and early adulthood, but we fell into business quite by accident. After getting married in 2007 and realizing that wedding photography is an incredible opportunity to take photos of people at their happiest, we found ourselves photographing a few weddings for friends and family members as favors to them before deciding to do things properly and officially forming our business in 2008. We ran the business together for 5+ years, but after the birth of our daughter, I took over full-time and am thrilled to capture such beautiful, exciting moments in my clients' lives.
I love to have fun on the job, bring personality to my images, and naturally photograph people, whether it be at a wedding or in the backyard with their kids. While I offer some direction when we work together, you won't find me overly-posing you into position or asking you to be something you're not. I like you just the way you are.
