Growing up in both California and Arizona, I fell in love with capturing the beauty of the natural world. I pursued my dream by attending Brooks Institute of Photography, graduating cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Commercial Photography. It was there that I started working for a wedding photographer and fell in love with telling peoples visual stories. I am available for travel worldwide.

PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE

Cyndi's artistic approach brings together an editorial style with an edgy flair, a taste for distinctive colors and textures, a relaxed shooting approach and a strong passion for telling your visual story. She believes that providing awesome memories requires insight, intuition and the ability to connect with people on an emotional level.

About Storytelling Photography
Wedding photography does not have to be just about posed shots. Wouldn't it be awesome to relax, simply have a good time and know that great images will follow?

With Cyndi's storytelling approach to photography, the focus is on the overall experience rather than the traditional process of picture taking. She encourages the wedding couple to relax and enjoy their special day with their family and friends and finds ways to enhance and capture the best moments throughout the day. She takes her time and lets the story unfold. This relaxed approach reduces stress and leaves more room for pure fun.  

I love flippies (flip flops). I could own an entire closet full of them.
I'm a hockey junkie. During hockey season, that's all you'll find on my tv.
I'm addicted to Music. Spotify is my editing partner.
I have a gypsy soul. I'm lucky enough to be able to travel for my work.
I have 2 adorable dogs, both are rescues and 100 pounds!
I love everything about the ocean - scuba diving, sitting or walking on the beach, even the smell of the ocean.
Favorite things.....Coffee, Tea, Wine, Coffee Crisp, Ice Cream, Hugs, Live Music

I truly have the most amazing job!! I get to wake up each day and create images that my clients and their families can enjoy and pass down through generations.

Cyndi is a phenomenal photographer! She has now photographed three of our events, and did each one to absolute perfection! She is a dream to work with, always pleasant, eager, and exceedingly professional. She has arrived early and stayed late at every event, and does her due diligence exploring the venue prior to the event to she has her lighting, location, and framing already geared up in her mind. She really knows what she is doing, and her efforts produce timeless, gorgeous, and stunningly unique photos (no boring snapshots here!). She goes above and beyond to understand your "vision," and is so patient in taking the time to listen to what you want and expect. She even participated in my Pinterest photography board for my wedding, adding photos she thought I would like and memorizing the ones I absolutely love. 
She truly does understand her art, and knows how to provide beautiful pictures. She absolutely nailed our sparkler exit photos and I couldn't have been happier. I have SO many friends who did sparkler exits, and it truly demonstrated the quality of their photographer... or lack thereof! No one's sparkler pictures turned out even a quarter as nice as ours... Cyndi truly understands lighting and the art of photography unlike so many of the wedding "photographers" out there.
Cyndi is THE BEST! I recommend her to everyone, and will be hiring her again for all future family events! I love Cyndi Hardy Photography! She is an ARTIST and you will not be disappointed!

Words cannot express how amazing Cyndi is! She is truly incredible at what she does!

She is so great to work with and is so personable. So sweet, funny, and makes you feel comfortable. Also helped me be less stressed out that day.

Our photographs came out so beautiful and captured our day perfectly. 

My husband, who hates to take photographs, loved having her behind the camera. He felt so comfortable taking photographs with her.

We're forever grateful for her!

If you want an awesome and wonderful wedding photographer, she's your gal!

I'm so impressed and thrilled with Cyndi and her counterparts work that I'll be getting a quote for my brothers wedding. She was kind, easy to get in touch with, EXTREMELY flexible, and you get every drop of what you pay for. Cyndi was professional and her works speaks to that. We were amazed at our wedding photos, even joked that we should be in a wedding magazine. She rocked it. We had to change our ceremony venue last minute due to a fire, subsequently changing our post ceremony photos (twice)! She went over and beyond the call of duty, not only did she scope the places we chose for pictures she alerted me to some fencing that went up at location 2 (4th of July prep) I had a 3rd option in mind and she had a fabulous alternative location for couple pictures before our reception. She went the extra mile for us and I couldn't have been happier to have chosen her and trusted her and her team with our big day! I should have done this review a whole lot sooner. She deserves every single star she can get! HIRE HER!!!!

Cyndi Hardy took our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos at 12 West Main. Cyndi was nothing but a pleasure to work with! It felt like we had an old friend taking our photos, not a professional photographer! At our engagement session we really felt like Cyndi got to know us and our relationship which we feel truly showed through in our wedding photos. Just like everyone tells you, your wedding day is one that flies by. It really felt like it went by in the blink of an eye, but I felt good knowing that Cyndi was there capturing all of those special moments. It only took about 3 weeks to get our wedding photos and when we opened them up, I felt my eyes fill with tears. She captured everything we hoped she would and then some! I don’t know how she was everywhere at once, but she was! She captured moments beautifully, especially the moments that were real and raw and just US. Because of Cyndi and her insane talent, we were able to relive that day that flew right by us. I would not hesitate to recommend Cyndi Hardy to anyone looking for a photographer for any of life’s big milestones! We look forward to working with Cyndi for any of our future photography needs!!! Thank you Cyndi!!!!

My husband and I are from Pittsburgh, Pa and when we decided to get married in Arizona, it was hard to find the right photographer. I found Cyndi Hardy Photography online. I was skeptical at first because I had to do everything via phone or email. Cyndi was very professional and got back to me quickly every time. We had talked many times about what I would like to see in our wedding pictures. I even flew out to Arizona for a last minute trip and Cyndi was able to meet me at our venue to go over everything. On the day of the wedding she was there early and ready to start capturing every moment of our special day. We had fun working with her and felt comfortable telling her where or how we wanted to shoot at times. Cyndi had our pictures done so fast. We were so excited to see them and boy we were not disappointed!! Our wedding pictures turned out perfect!! I am honest when I say I am super picky about myself in pictures and there is not one picture I didn't like! I would definitely recommend Cyndi to do your pictures at any event. Thank you Cyndi for being a part of our special day and capturing it all!

We hired Cyndi to photograph our wedding in San Diego at the Water Conservation Garden. Cyndi walked us through the entire process of working with us to figure out what we wanted and how we wanted our special day to be photographed well enough in advance. She was so patient while we explored our options. She was on time and very professional during the wedding. She worked with my difficult family to make the best pictures. We were so excited to see our pictures, and they came out great! Overall, when we have another event where we need a photographer, we will definitely use her again.

Cyndi was incredible and we would recommend her to anyone. We met with a few different photographers when deciding who to go with and right away we both felt amazing about her. She is easy to talk to, really comfortable to be around, listens well and was super professional throughout the whole process. We live in San Diego but got married in AZ and she was willing to come out to SD to do our engagement session (with our dog and in 2 locations which was badass!). We were blown away by the pictures (we highly recommend doing an engagement session). Cyndi's communication was always super timely and she was on top of everything (as far as scheduling, locations and timing, etc). Wedding day was absolutely perfect with her and the 2nd photographer (we loved him but not positive about his name!); they were respectful and efficient but also really fun and sweet. We are really happy with our pictures, we have so many great ones to choose from we are having a hard time doing so! Thanks to Cyndi we will have the most beautiful pictures and memories to have for the rest of our lives. Definitely go with Cyndi, you will be stoked you did!

We love Cyndi! We started the week with a fun little family session in the park. Our munchkins didn't cooperate, but Cyndi was still able to snap some amazing photos that I already have framed! A few days later, she photographed our wedding. The first look was perfect! After the wedding, Cyndi was very timely in getting our photos edited and uploaded for digital viewing. I instantly fell in love with every picture! in addition to great photography, Cyndi has a great personality. I look forward to seeing her again whether it is for a family photo session or for happy hour! Thank you!
