Hey friends! I’m Jodi, the photographer behind Five•Twenty•One Photography. I’m so excited that you stopped by my site and you are considering me to help tell your story through photographs. I love memories. I’m a hoarder and overly sentimental when it comes to memorabilia. You will be guaranteed that I will put the same amount of love into your photographic memories as I do my own. I want you to have photographs that you will cherish for a lifetime.
I’d love to get to know you and spend time together capturing and making memories for your family! We’ll have a blast – I promise! So take a look around, see what I have to offer and then contact me to begin the conversation.
Hey friends! I’m Jodi, the owner and photographer of Five•Twenty•One Photography. I have the most amazing, and supportive husband, and I am the mom of two children, my stepson, Kaleb and daughter Kylee. When I am away from 521, you can find me designing marketing materials for a local high school, coaching/judging cheerleading competitions, or visiting with family and friends. Things I love include, vacations, Lifetime movies, white cheddar popcorn, and cherry coke!
I started my photography journey capturing my cheerleading team on the sidelines and teaching a high school photography class. In 2013, when my daughter was born, I immediately became a mamarazzi and made it my goal to capture every second of her life. I began to fall more and more in love with taking pictures of moments and sharing the joy of having those pictures to remember forever. In 2014, Five•Twenty•One was born and I now share my passion for capturing these memories for each of the wonderful families I meet! Let's create memories for you, today! We'll have a blast - I promise!
Whether it's the day you are getting married, a moment to capture your family and freezing time, or embarking on one of the most exciting years of your childhood, your senior year, it's my belief that these opportunities are moments to be cherished and captured in a way that you will remember them for the rest of your life. It's not just a matter of snapping great memories for your wall but instead, capturing memories that will last a lifetime and you will never want to take down. It's my goal to capture photographs that will literally bring back all of the exciting feelings of that day and allow you to relive these moments all over again! Authentic photographs that will make you smile every time you look at them!
I am so blessed to have met some wonderful people through my photography sessions, allowing me to tell stories of their life through photographs.
I would love to photograph your family, senior, or upcoming wedding! Call me at (517) 898-3870 or fill out the contact form to start the conversation.
I can not wait to hear from you!
Yes! All of my wedding and portrait packages will come with a print release that allows you to print and share with family and friends.
Key wedding dates book one year in advance, portrait sessions book 1-2 months in advance. Of course, there are always exceptions! Contact me about your date and we can check availability.
I love to travel! Contact me about distance and rates when you inquire.
You bet! I am fully licensed and insured. Should a venue ask for liability insurance, just let me know.
If inclement weather is in the forecast for your portrait session, we would just reschedule to another date. I keep open dates in my calendar to accommodate these situations. Bad weather for your wedding? No problem! I've got experience shooting in rain, wind, and snow! It's Michigan after all. We'll make beautiful portraits regardless of the weather!
During peak seasons, portrait sessions will arrive to you within 3-4 weeks and weddings are delivered within 6-8 weeks. Off season deliveries are often 3 weeks or less.
High-resolution images are delivered digitally in an password protected online gallery with download rights. A custom USB is available for purchase as a keepsake to store your memories.
That depends. Portrait sessions range from 15-50 images depending on the package you purchase. Every wedding is different, however, my average wedding delivery for with full day coverage is 600-700 images.
Yes! All of the images you receive will be professionally edited using my personal 521 style.
For portrait sessions, often I will bring an assistant to help with lighting or equipment. For weddings, I do offer packages which include a second photographer. I will always remain the lead photographer and will be in charge of your portrait plan.
I use professional Canon DSLR camera bodies, L series lenses, and flashes.
I have attended several professional photography workshops, taught photography to high school students, and continue to learn and advance with new technologies and styles. I shot my first wedding in 2011 but officially opened my business in 2014.
Absolutely! I recommend that you do from any photographer you hire. Just let me know and I will send you a link to a few weddings I have recently delivered.
Cash, check, and credit cards are accepted. For wedding packages, payment plans are also available.

We had such a great day with Jodi! I loved watching her at work, capturing Megan's natural beauty! She was both fun and professional. Jodi spent a lot of time with us - using Megan's ideas and adding some of her own touches. We are extremely happy with our photos and will cherish them for a lifetime.

Jodi was great to work with, and she has original and tasteful ideas. She really took her time and made sure we had all the photos we wanted and at a great quality. She helped us with photo ideas and finding the right location for us. The end products were absolutely beautiful and we had a wonderful time capturing every moment.

Working with Jodi was easy, relaxing and dare I say enjoyable? I thought my camera shy son's senior pics were going to be difficult, but Jodi made him feel at ease and he had fun. I absolutely love his pictures and received so many compliments!

Working with Jodi has been an amazing experience, we were nervous going into our engagement session being that we had never met with Jodi, but we felt so at ease when the session began. It also was an amazing feeling having a photographer who was passionate about what she does as well as being excited to work with us and for us. We were extremely excited to view our galleries and it was well worth the wait. When going through our pictures we saw the love for each other throughout every picture, we got compliments from every person who looked at them. They were beyond our expectations and simply beautiful.

I am extremely impressed with the quality of Five•Twenty•One Photography’s photographs and service. Jodi was very open to my ideas, as well as sharing her own which made my experience great! She is creative, talented, and truly amazing!

Our experience with Five•Twenty•One was fabulous. Jodi was very professional during our engagement session and wedding day and had a lot of ideas to share. She made both of us feel very comfortable and relaxed and that made for some really great shots! The location she picked for our shoot was gorgeous and her transition from shot to shot was seamless, keeping it fun and up beat even with the early morning session and damp weather. The turn around time to receive our photos was fast and she made it so much fun anticipating their arrival with our teaser photos. All in all, we had a great experience and are so thankful to have had Five•Twenty•One capture our special moments!
