    Incredible Service!

    Michaela is incredible! Not only did we use her for our engagement photoshoot, but she did a family photoshoot for us as well. My fiancé's family lives in Nevada and they decided to surprise us with a visit. With short notice Michaela was able to accommodate our family photoshoot and even managed to get cute shots of our crazy dogs all together. For the Engagement shoot my makeup team was running late which caused us to run an hour behind! I felt so bad for making her wait but she totally understood and was so sweet about it. We also had terrible wind that day I was so discouraged when we first started but the photos turned out better then I could have ever hoped for. I'm very self conscious and when I tell you I love these photos...I LOVVVEEEEE these photos. I can't wait to have her shoot my wedding next year!!!

    Thanks so much Nicole, it was such a pleasure working with you- and what an incredible day and location it was.

Michaela Gardner
Michaela Gardner
Lead Photographer

While working as a professional photographer, Michaela Gardner describes herself as a yogini and artist who uses a camera as an expressive tool. Born in California, and graduated from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, Gardner’s work has covered a wide range of photographic genres, including artistic portraiture, documentary, and art. Her artwork and prints are collected worldwide in private homes. She currently exhibits her work in Laguna Beach at the Sawdust Art Festival.

Gardner says,“ I am always and forever consumed with answering the question: Why is that compelling? Taking pictures has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Although creating images has been a constant passion and interest, I spent years studying yoga and meditation after a near death experience, from which I moved to Maui Hawaii for many years. I gained immeasurable insight into what it means to transform yourself through hard work, and with passion, vision, intention, and artistry. My work is a reflection of profoundness of experience, intending to inspire others to express themselves and to live life.”
