About Gardner Photography
Welcome to Gardner Photography!
Rochester Wedding, Boudoir, and Portrait Photographers.
Let Us Tell Your Wedding Day Story Through Our Photos!
We are a husband and wife team based in Rochester, New York. We love 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. Our job is to turn that vision into memories. But we don't just stop there. Let Gardner Photography capture other the special moments in your life, like Engagements, Bridal Portraits and Intimate Portraits.
The days of good enough photos are in a 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 coffe-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 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 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.
In a distant 2006, after a decade of working as a Photojournalist and a Chief Photographer for two Rochester television news stations, Jason Gardner needed a new challenge. He has found it in wedding and portrait photography. Passion, experience, continued education, and a strong work ethic has contributed to his growing success. His creative vision, unique style, and dedication has made Jason one of Rochester's best photographers. The Emmy he won for the News Story "In the Line of Fire" is the best reflection of his incredible tallent.
