John Gardner - Owner

- Master Photographer



John is from Clarks Summit and came to Lewisburg to attend Bucknell University. He graduated with a degree in Psychology, a minor in German, and a Masters Degree in Educational Psychology. He was on the wrestling team and was a founding member of the Bucknell Rugby Club. While spending two years abroad, John studied at the University of Heidelberg, Germany and started on the University National Championship rugby team. John taught in the Education Department at Bucknell and in the Art Department at Susquehanna. John fell in love with his wife, Marge, the first day he saw her when they were in 4th grade! They have four children: Ben, Maggie, Jenn, and Andy.


When you meet John, you feel that you have a made a friend you can trust. Although he never remembers your name, he never will forget you. Children through adults come back through the doors of the Studio and can always depend on his caring, his optimism, his creativity, and his ability to celebrate life with you.

Marge Gardner - Office Manager



Marge also comes from Clarks Summit. She was a Math Major at Ursinus and she transferred to Penn State where she graduated Summa Cum Laude in education. After achieving a Masters Degree in Guidance, Marge became the Supervisor of Student Services at Exeter High School in Reading. Marge is an avid gardener (excuse the pun), bike rider, traveler and animal lover. She also enjoys meeting new people, which makes her customer service second to none. After Marge greets you, you'll immediately feel right at home. She will take you through every step of your Lewisburg Studio experience. Marge's sensitivity, caring and eye for design will help you plan a photography session that truly captures your personality and spirit.

Amber Gardner - Photographer


Amber Gardner is the awesome, creative, and fun person behind the lens of our senior photography. She also photographs our newborn clients, children, families, and PR.

Amber is married to (an awesome bearded) man who is a Veteran of the US Army. She has lived all over, including Florida, Colorado, Virginia, and Germany. She is also a proud mother to 4 (yes you read that right) very beautiful smart children in the Selinsgrove area. She also LOVES her German Shepherd dog, Piper.

Amber is very talented and creative behind the lens and also in other crafty areas as well. She's a total "soccer mom", an avid coffee drinker, and thrift store shopper. She loves to read and (binge) watch TV series.

She is always asked if John and Marge are her parents - and the answer is no - it's a coincidence. :)
