AboutMePage-GraphicThe girl behind the camera…

Hi friends! I’m so glad you’re here! My name is Christine and I love strong coffee, strawberry donuts, and bad puns.

Christine Skari Photography began as a simple medium for my passion for capturing authentic moments and has blossomed into my pride and joy. I’m located in Southern California. I love incorporating natural light and candid posing to help tell a story and really help personalities shine in my photos! My goal is always to capture your relationship and beauty in a genuine and timeless way.

One of the most common questions I get is how I got into photography. It’s actually a pretty short story! My mad love affair with my camera hit me in the typical way falling in love happens: fast, hard, and head over heels. I got my sentimental heart from my father. We both feel an urge to preserve moments and not a family gathering goes by where he doesn’t encourage me to grab my camera. He was the one who bought me my first DSLR camera and is my biggest fan and supporter. Since that first camera, I have continued to grow as a self-taught photographer and have found my own light-filled style.

I have a silly, fun-loving, and creative personality and my sessions include lots of laughing and natural smiles (many due to my terrible jokes)! I go into every session excited at the prospect of meeting my clients and bringing out their inner beauty and joy through my camera :).

Memories fade quickly unless held closely to us and there is a sense of magic in photos that let us revisit an earlier time and remember. It’s a beautiful thing. I believe that photos are the most precious heirloom that you can leave behind.  The wedding flowers will die, the cake will be eaten, and inheritances will be spent, but having your grandchildren find an old, dusty box filled with a stunning photos from your wedding day is truly priceless.
