An Easy Process

For Your Northern Michigan Photo Adventure

We get it. Your life is busy, and your time is valuable. You don't have time for bullsh!t, and neither do we. But, that's exactly why we've made the process as simple as possible for everyone involved! Below, you can see that we've laid out our process in four easy steps.


Step 1: Schedule Your Adventure Session

First we'll set up a time to chat about your upcoming adventure or vacation. Together we will decide the location, time, and date for your adventure session, as well as any activities you would like to participate in. We will also schedule your Reveal & Ordering Appointment at this time, so you know exactly when you can expect to see the results!


Step 2: Have Your Adventure

This is one of the easiest and by far, one of the most fun steps. You simply get to enjoy your adventure or vacation! We will happily guide you and your loved ones along the trail, should you need the assistance, as well as photograph the joy and beauty of your family within nature.


Step 3: Reveal & Ordering Appointment

Within 14 days from your Adventure Session, you will be able to attend your Reveal & Ordering Appointment. This is where we show you in person (or online) how amazing the adventure or vacation was, and just how much fun you were having with your loved ones. You will also be able to order any printed or digital keepsakes at this time.


Step 4: Show Off Your Printed Keepsakes

Good news! Your printed keepsakes (albums, wall art, or prints) are now in your hands, and you have a living heirloom from your time with your loved ones on your Adventure Session or vacation. You'll be able to proudly showcase these keepsakes in prominent areas of your home or office, and talk about these joyous times whenever friends and family visit.

We couldn't imagine anyone else photographing our elopement, as Jess and Jeff have a wealth of information! I swear, it was like we hired a wedding planner, officiant, and photographer all in one!

My daughter was worried about her senior pictures, not really liking being in front of the camera. Jess and Jeff not only put her at ease, but brought out her real smiles too! Thank you both so much!

Jess and Jeff always find the best spots for my family and I to take quick adventures, and I don't have to worry about not being in the photos. We come back every six months for an updated experience!
