First Annual Client Appreciation Cruise on the Nauti-Cat

I had dreamed of this day on the Nauti-Cat for almost a year before it came and went in the blink of an eye. I hosted my first Annual Client Appreciation Cruise! The words “Thank You” aren’t enough to show the amount of gratitude I feel, to be able to turn a creative passion into my dream career. Nicole Geri Photography

Small gifts, or a thank you card are nice, but I treasure memories above all. I wanted to curate an unforgettable experience. I had a goal to gather these humans who have supported me in this dream job. And man, this was the best business expense of my life.

I had clients as early as 10 years ago, to some couples I had met only weeks prior. Everyone had one initial thing in common, I had photographed them at some point in my career. It was so heartwarming to have all these humans gathered and befriending each other. By the end of the trip I saw couple’s sharing their contact info with new friends. 2 hours went too quick, but I’m grateful for plenty of photos and videos to remember this cruise by.
A special thank you to Earthstory Weddings for the recap video. Wandr North joined to photograph the event. DJ Parker Marshall kept the boat rocking with great tunes! Nauti-Cat Cruises provided the sunset cruise in the Grand Traverse Bay.
This wouldn’t have been the same without everyone who chose me to photograph their special events and were able to make it out to this cruise on the Grand Traverse Bay. It was fun to hang with those who attended an evening where I did not hold a camera, but instead enjoyed your company. We rocked the boat!
Can’t wait for next year!
