About Us

Chris and Cathy Gardner, Owners of CCG Creative Studios

Chris and Cathy Gardner | Owners of CCG Creative Studios

We are Chris and Cathy Gardner (the origin of “CCG”) and we have been actively involved in photography services for many years. For most of this time, we were among the amateur ranks and gladly shared our God-given gifts with friends and family for events of all kinds.


It is with both sadness and gratitude that we announce that we are closing our doors, effective February 26, 2021. Our galleries will shut down at about that time and the web site will remain until the domain expires (summer of 2021).

All original image files will be kept indefinitely in our highly secure storage environment. Clients are welcome to inquire about purchasing digital copies of images from previous sessions (weddings, family portraits, graduating seniors, parties and events, and so on). We will post contact information later, but for the time being, please feel free to contact us here on our website.


Over the past several years, we began branching out and, in January of 2005, we officially began operating as a business. Cathy has been involved in Scrapbooking and photo archival services for a few years. She was a consultant with Creative Memories┬« for a while and learned a great deal about the storage and preservation of your priceless photographic memories.

Co-owner and lead photographer Chris was recently featured on Thumbtack. Click HERE to check out the article (scroll down and see the article on the right side of the page).

Chris has been a photographer for over 30 years, but took up the more serious work of professional portrait and artistic photography over the past few. He has remained active in the volunteer/amateur world, as well, never forgetting his roots. Please feel free to browse our galleries to see his work.
