After graduating from RIT with a Bachelor's of Fine Arts in Advertising Photography, Aleks Gardner took over Gardner Photography from his parents in 2020. The face of the business might have changed but Gardner Photography's motto has remained the same since its creation back in 2008. "To produce highly decorative and dramatic imagery on your special day". Aleks is highly dedicated photographer based in Rochester, New York. He loves photographing weddings and creating fine art portraits!
Every Wedding is unique! Every bride has her own vision of how she wants her day to unfold. My job is to turn that vision into memories. But I don't just stop there. Let Gardner Photography capture other the special moments in your life, like Engagements, Bridal Portraits, Intimate Portraits, and Senior Graduations.
The days of good enough photos are a thing of the past! Today's bride wants unique, creatively lit images of her special day. She wants her photographer to tell a visual wedding day story. She wants a coffee-table book that she will pass to her daughter and heirloom portraits for the wall. So what does it take to be great wedding photographer? Today's wedding photographer has to combine skills of a portrait, landscape, food and editorial photographers! He/she must be able to build flattering poses and create attractive lighting on a run! In addition to excellent technical skills, like advanced lighting and posing technics he/she must be able to show creativity under a great deal of pressure. A bride spends months even years preparing for her special day and photographer's job is to record the day's events as they unfold. The light is not always great; as the matter of fact, on a bright summer afternoon it's usually far from perfect, it may rain or even snow (yes, this is Western New York!) The timeline may not always allow for a surplus of opportunity to capture each moment. Things tend to run late! But despite all of this, a good wedding photographer will produce outstanding images.
