Welcome to The Gardens!

Photographers are welcome to shoot sessions at Southern Exposure by purchasing a day or season pass. Available dates and times can now be reserved by signing up through our online booking calendar. All fees will be paid online and are non-refundable.

If there is an event in progress during your scheduled time, please manage your session so that you are not visible to our event customers.

To reserve your time slot, click the “Book Now” button and you will be directed to our online registration system. Sessions must be booked at least 24 hours in advance.

Our official Photographer Policy, including specific guidelines, is available in PDF format for easy downloading and printing. Please read prior to arrival at the Gardens.

Our Location

Southern Exposure is conveniently located in beautiful southwest Michigan between Detroit and Chicago. If you’re looking for a lovely Calhoun county wedding venue, or hosting a private event, we would love to provide you with a truly magical experience!
