Map export automation

Is it possible to create a script that would zoom to pre-designated bookmarks in the layout view and export a PDF of each bookmark?  I work on projects that have many different areas of data.  Once I'm done editing, I go to layout view, zoom to bookmarks, and print a PDF of each one.  It would be really nice if I could set up a script that would allow me to just click a button on a toolbar and it exports a PDF for me.


I am guessing that I would need to have a prompt for save folder location and PDF save name, but other than that the rest could be automatically set up.


Initially I just want to know if this is possible.  I know the code could be quite extensive, so I'm not asking anyone to write it for me.  I've done some research on it and I can't find a lot about it.  If it's possible, could someone guide me to a good resource for research on the topic, please?
