Spotlight | Melissa Gregerson Photography

I have had the pleasure of getting to know Melissa of Melissa Gregerson Photography over the past few months and I am excited to be spotlighting her & her work today. Melissa is a lovely woman - kind, caring, and totally fun!

She is based out of Kalamazoo, Michigan but works all over the state. She recently moved into a sassy little studio in the heart of Kalamazoo and it's just as fabulous as her work. Don't forget to check out her blog!

How long have you been photographing weddings & events?

This is my third year in business!

What inspires you as you work with your clients?

A couple's personality and chemistry with each other inspires me....most couples are not comfortable in front of a camera, so I do my best to make the whole photo session fun, and enjoyable. I usually ask the guy to "love on her" and he automatically starts to relax. His love for her just oozes out of him...and then I am free to do whatever as a photographer!

Why did you chose to photograph weddings?

Weddings intrigue me. I love all the different emotional photos that I can capture in just one day. They are fun , challenging and exciting for me. I am also a girl who likes style and color, so I love to go to each wedding and admire the decor and details.

If you could shoot a wedding for anyone who would you pick?

Mine! I dislike my wedding photos from over 7 years ago...so generic and "BLAH" and would give anything to go back and have them redone. When I photograph a wedding, I remember vividly what it was like to be a bride, and always think when I am getting some great images...."gosh, I wish I had a photo like this of my husband and I".

Do you have one "gotta get it" shot at every wedding?

I really love photographing the rings....and trying to get some fun ways to show them off. I now have a specific time during the wedding day that I photograph ONLY the rings. =)

What is your favorite way to spend a non-working Saturday in the summer?

Sleeping in, if my three year old would ever let me. Having a nice breakfast, and doing anything with my little family. Whether that be hanging out in the backyard or going to somewhere fun....as long as we are together.
