Cyndi went to the Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, one of the top photography schools in the nation. She has lived in Phoenix since 2004 and has photographed over 500 weddings in the last 20 years. She loves hanging out with her 100+ pound german shepherd/lab mix that she rescued after he was hit by a car. She loves traveling and really enjoys taking her dog on road trips with her. Cyndi is a first-generation American and her family is originally from Canada and so she has no choice but to be a huge hockey fan.
"We are so grateful and lucky to have booked Cyndi. From the first email all the way to the end of the wedding, she was an incredibly kind and knowledgeable professional. The photos were stunning, with amazing angles, lighting, framing of the shots, strategically hiding people and objects behind us, knowing the great locations at our venue. She approaches things very calmly and in addition to being an amazing photographer, she was able and kind enough to walk us through some of the wedding events like recommending where we need to be, helping us sign the marriage license, cutting the cake, etc. We can't recommend her highly enough. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts, Cyndi."

"Cyndi is the MOST amazing photographer you could ever choose! She is a wizard with a camera and is one of the nicest people I've ever met. She is so willing to work with you and truly cares about what she does and who she works with. We could not have asked for better engagement and wedding photos! Truly, truly amazing work. "

"Cyndi Hardy is an amazing event photographer! We chose her for our Palm Springs wedding after going over many photographer's sites. Cyndi was one of the few who was obviously comfortable shooting both nighttime and daytime during Autumn in the desert. We loved her body of work, especially the quiet emotional moments. As soon as we first spoke, we knew we were in good hands. Cyndi is warm and personable, professional and knowledgable, and she spent the time to get to know us, our unique personalities and odd shot choices. She presented a solid plan that contained all we wanted and so much more. Cyndi gently guided us through our pre-ceremony photos with ease, prioritizing on the fly as we unexpectedly ran out of time! During the ceremony, she captured everything, remaining unobtrusive and respectful of the moment. She recorded all the love and joy, the sacred and silly. She and her team caught so many of the moments we didn’t get to witness at the time. Most of all, she really “got” Matt and I, and was able to capture our love in so many beautiful images. We are so grateful Cyndi was there for us on our wedding day!"
