Meredith Gradishar

ZOOM THEORY Founder & Lead Photographer

For over 15 years, Zoom Theory has been creating art and helping clients feel themselves in front of the camera. It’s my passion to help you create lasting memories, to make every experience an adventure, and help you feel comfortable every step of the way.

I’m a mountain girl, a mom, an entrepreneur, and I feel most grounded in the water. Living in Long Beach, CA, I live for football, live music and our newly adopted puppy Mozy. Originally from Littleton, CO, I still enjoy getaways to my family cabin in the Rocky Mountains. I have a BA in Photography from UCR and have photographed over 2,500 clients including over 500 weddings.

I believe in equality and support every expression of love and partnership. I care deeply about your experience with myself and our team and put positive energy and thoughtfulness into every shoot and celebration. Most importantly, I work to ensure our time together is fun, stress-free and efficient – so you can enjoy the party!

Our clients say:

Meredith's photography style encompasses all that we envisioned and hoped for - she is highly adept at capturing the simplistic beauty in moments, and skillfully utilizes the natural background to craft breathtakingly beautiful images. She offers an initial comprehensive phone call to gather all information needed to map out the day, and was available, responsive, and friendly at every point throughout the process. We couldn’t be more pleased with our picture gallery and now find ourselves struggling to choose from the multitude of images that are all so uniquely beautiful.

My wife and I found Meredith via Instagram while we were looking for local vendors in the Long Beach area. Within 3 minutes of me emailing Meredith to inquire about our wedding, she called me to chat about the wedding and pricing. All of her communication is on point. Her pricing can’t be beat. And on the day of the wedding, she went above and beyond to not only help capture our wedding but to help us feel comfortable and special. We are so grateful to have such beautiful images to remember our special day. Zoom theory is a must hire.

Working with Meredith was like a dream! Meredith was so amazing to work with for many reasons. She created an environment that made us feel so comfortable being in front of the camera, which is not something we both typically feel the most comfortable with. Not only was she energetic and professional, but she also created such an extra unique element to the day that allowed us to be ourselves fully while being present. Meredith created beautiful backdrops for our photos and has an incredible eye for photography. We highly recommend Zoom Theory for a wedding, an event, or anything you want to be photographed. She is a five-star artist.
