Holly Gardner

As a passionate photographer, entrepreneur and writer, I focus on documenting the beauty of the world around me. Currently based in the gorgeous Panhandle of Florida, I am an avid adventurer who loves the beauty of the great outdoors, and I am always inspired by extraordinary architecture, artistic design, Southern style, and everything coastal. My work has taken me around the U.S. to document hundreds of weddings and capture images for a select group of clients and publications that include:

Brett Favre; Case Western Reserve University; David Weekley Homes; Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University; Gemvara; Guideposts Magazine; Homes & Land Magazine; Mercer University Press; Military Times; National Rifle Association; The New York Times; West Marine and numerous others.

Along the way, I’ve had the opportunity to work extensively as an educator and speaker – experiences that I am able to build upon as I focus on teaching, writing, and motivating others to write their own stories.  When I’m not spending time with my family you can find me experimenting in the kitchen, taking pictures, and blogging about my experiences.

I am a full professional member of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) and the Professional Photographers of America (PPA).  Honors include Governor Rick Scott’s 2015 Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award as well as two gold and two silver ADDY awards from the American Advertising Foundation.
