We love Jesus, our son Coast, our daughter Lani, spicy foods, Hawaii, Disneyland, cookies, the ocean, movies (seriously - if we are ever missing, check the movie theaters), and New Girl. Our perfect date night would be going shopping, getting sushi, then going to the movie theater (getting a medium popcorn, Coke to share, and sour candy). We love food and movies if you can’t tell. POV: We connect to your bluetooth...you can count on Carly playing early 2000's music, Olivia Rodrigo, Midnights album, or pretty much any dance bop. If John connects, he will most likely play Ben Howard, Novo Amor, Scarypoolparty, or some acoustic, chill, unknown song. 

What else do you wanna know?!

hey friend.

We're The Hardins!

HI! So nice to "meet" you! We're the Hardins. John, Carly, Coast + Lani!

We are so happy you're here. Our business has been a family business from the second we became The Hardins LLC. We are so passionate about what we do, but we're even more passionate about our little family.

"The Hardins made it so easy to not only get to know them both, but they took their time to know US and what WE wanted. I felt like they were there for me on my big day more than they know."

- Trisha + Jorge

I started to do photography when I was in high school, but always dreamed of what it would be like to be a videographer. When Carly and I got engaged, Carly told me to go for it! And so I did! I fell in love with the story-telling part of it, but I also really enjoy the technical part of it as well.

John’s favorite things: walks with my family, Coast's leg rolls, surfing, playing soccer, Mexican food (especially burritos enchilada style), long boarding, Stranger Things, Christmas, anything spicy, the ocean, coffee, and small dogs (preferably wiener dogs). 


I picked up a camera 7 years ago and never put it down. Every snap and click over here comes from me! It all started with a Canon Rebel T5i and now it's a full blown business. My love for owning a business definitely grew and grew & eventually I found that I had a passion for teaching other business owners. I've seen first hand how potential, knowledge, and tools can become a business. So I want to help others do the same.

I am PASSIONATE and silly. I love heated debates about stupid things (but they also make me sweaty and mad sometimes). People energize me, but I also love my alone time.

Carly’s favorite things: peonies, potatoes, painting, music, ice cream (Monkey Business from Handels...that's holy ice cream), Gossip Girl, themed parties, chocolate, physical planners, YA novels about summer romance, pretty much any kind of Asian cuisine, the beach, and dancing.
