styled content day

Sincerely, Yours is a series of creative retreats started by Olivia + Jillian to build a space for photographers to be inspired, expand their portfolio, all while making lasting connections in the industry.

Our first stop is *drum roll* … Door County, Wisconsin! Door County is a magical place with extensive Lake Michigan shorelines, stunning views of clear blue water, beautiful nature, and charming towns dotting the peninsula. Olivia and her family have spent the summers in Door County since she was a young kid, so she knows all the best spots and places to go. We couldn’t think of a more perfect spot for a photography content retreat and place to kick off Sincerely, Yours.

Jillian Blanc

Olivia Simon

Jillian is a Minneapolis-based photographer with over 8 years of experience in the industry. Growing up with flight attendant parents, the love for exploring has always been a part of her. She translated her love for photography into a passion-fueled side hustle that she wouldn’t trade for anything. When she’s not behind the lens you can find her outside with a glass of wine, or curled up on the couch with her fiancé + little black cat. Jillian never passes up an opportunity to explore a new city, enjoy an iced vanilla latte at a new coffee shop, or thrift at a local antique store. She’s a lover of the simple, effortless moments that come so naturally and leave you feeling calm yet energized.

Olivia is a photographer, raised in Wisconsin, and based in Arizona with over 9 years of experience. As a lifelong creative, she finds her energy and inspiration by traveling to new places, experiencing new things, and capturing life's beauty. If she is not photographing, you can probably find her adventuring with her husband Kyle, soaking in the sun with a glass of rosé, at the lake with family and friends, and probably planning her next travels. Olivia loves all things adventure and as it stands her favorite cities are Copenhagen, Sifnos, and Marrakesh (if you haven’t been, add them to your list!). She’s a strong believer in being kind, intentional, and genuine and she works to artistically capture that in all of her work.

How do I secure my spot?

How does transportation work?

Fill out the form on this site and we will be in touch with next steps and payment details. $325 is due to secure your spot and the remaining $325 (+ $50 bonus session if attending) is due on June 1st, 2022. Please note, the full fee of the ticket is non-refundable.

You are in charge of your own transportation, but we highly encourage carpooling! We will be creating an Instagram group chat of all the attendees for you to figure out carpools, car rentals, etc.

Where should I stay?

What is the best way to get to Door County?

Accommodation is not included. If you are in need of somewhere to stay, we have a few local favorites listed below. However, any hotels or Airbnbs you can find in Egg Harbor, Fish Creek, Ephriam, Sister Bay, or Baileys Harbor are great! If you are struggling to find anything, just reach out and we can give a few more suggestions as well.

Dorr Hotel (Sister Bay) - Our main recommendation. We have a room block for anyone interested! Details will be provided to confirmed attendees.

Modern Flats (Egg Harbor)

Goose & Twig (Sister Bay)

Roots Inn (Sister Bay)

We recommend booking sooner rather than later because accommodation books up very quickly in the summer months in all of Door County!

Door county is magical, paradise on earth, the best of the best, amazing for a content day. Ok, we will stop! But seriously, it is amazing! Here are a few options if you are not located within driving distance.

Fly into Green Bay (a little over 1 hour, closest option)

Fly into Appleton (1 hour and 45 mins away, second closest option)

Fly into Milwaukee (2 hours and 45 mins away) or Chicago (a little under 4 hours away)

Where in Door County will the sessions be held?

What happens if there is bad weather?

Rain or shine, we plan to embrace it! Different weather can create some really unique & beautiful images. BUT obviously, if the weather is super terrible, we have just as gorgeous of concepts and locations already planned as a backup! If this event is canceled for any reason, attendees will receive a full refund. *Fingers crossed for perfect weather!*

We will share a detailed timeline with exact locations to all confirmed attendees closer to the date. But for travel planning purposes, we recommend booking any accommodation in one of the following towns: Egg Harbor, Fish Creek, Ephriam, Sister Bay, or Baileys Harbor. All of these towns have their own character & charm and are centrally located.

What if I can no longer make it?

How many photographers will be attending?

The ticket is non-refundable. If you are no longer able to attend for any reason, no refund will be issued. You are welcome to sell your ticket to another photographer but please communicate with us ahead of time for approval. We will be happy to share and help you get your ticket sold if needed.

We have 16 open spots (maximum) because we want this to be an intimate and enjoyable environment where people have the time and space to capture the content they desire! We will be shooting in smaller groups + you will get individual time at each session to direct your own shots.
