Bowlen_Family_NewportBeach_2018-44Bowlen_Family_NewportBeach_2018-44 Christina did it again! She got wonderful pictures of my girls that really show their unique personalities. The scrunched noses, head tilts, and real smiles- all in 30 minutes. Christina has taken pictures of my family three times, and has done a great job each time. She's great with toddlers and tweens, and everything in between. I think motherhood has added another layer to her photos. 
Her website is easier than ever to use, too.

IMG_0507IMG_0507 Christina Cho is the most sincere, honest, and positive person I've ever met. That being said, she is also a very talented photographer. The combination of these wonderful attributes has made both of our family sessions with her excellent experiences (18 months apart, totally different locations). Each time, she put the kids at ease and got lots of great candids. She has a really great way with kids!  And each time,  I never doubted  that she would make my husband and me look wonderful. She's also very open and flexible about the creative process ( I can be a little bossy!).  Her prices are very reasonable, as well. I look forward to working with her for years to come.

Christina is simply an amazingly talented photographer, and an awesome personality to match!  She made it a pleasant family experience, even including our unpredictable dog to be included in the group photos.  You will not be disappointed - guaranteed!

I don't normally review anything unless it's #epic. So here we go... Christina has done 3 photo shoots for my wife and I. 

Our engagement shoot was 3 years ago and it was my first time doing anything photo related. I actually disdain taking photos, but happy wife, happy life. Christina made me feel very comfortable and made the process really fun. She tried to squeeze as many photos in or session as possible. 

Our second shoot was my wife's maternity shoot a year ago and Christina did an amazing job capturing my beautiful wife and highlighting our future bundle of joy. 

Out last shoot was two weeks ago with our newest addition. My son was a bit camera shy, but Christina got him to perk up and smile. She works wonders and is so easy to work with for any occasion. 

I highly recommend this EPIC photographer for your EPIC occasions.

Christina is an amazing person and photographer! Her sweet personality makes the entire session feel natural. She is also great at getting people to laugh and smile! Christina was our wedding photographer. We also used her for a maternity and newborn session for us, which were amazing, as always. Her photos capture natural beauty and tender moments. We couldn't have been happier!


Christina is fantastic! She has an amazing work ethic, a great personality... and her photos are AMAZING. I loved the headshots she gave me and I have always been impressed with her photography work. I highly recommend Christina for your photo needs and I will continue to use her for mine :)

Christina is an amazing photographer!! She captures the personality of her clients and brings out the beauty in each of them. We have been blessed to have her prepare a beginning portfolio for dance auditions. She has done a beautiful job in photographing my daughter.

I needed a headshot picture for a website but was completely dreading having to get pictures taken. Taking pictures has always been a super awkward and uncomfortable experience but not with Christina! She knew exactly how to direct me to capture a natural smile and pose. She's also extremely fast and efficient. She knows exactly what will look good and what won't. I think we got my headshots and the group picture done in about 15-20 minutes and it was completely painless! I will definitely use Christina again for future photography needs

Christina Cho is one of the best photographers I know. Not only is she beyond talented with her work, she is so personable, makes you feel so confident and captures the best shoots without you even noticing. If you want a natural, yet spectacular photo of your loves ones, friends, events, or even yourself, you have GOT to check out her gallery! Thank you, Christina for all that you do! You are an amazing person and a phenomenal photographer!

We had a family photo session of about 25 people (half are kids).  I contacted Christina just about a month prior and she worked with me on the date/time.  She was very accommodating as I was trying to make sure everyone in my family can make it.

The day of, it was raining so we had to wait for awhile for the rain to stop.  Christina did not rush us in starting the session.  We booked her for 1.5 hrs.  Not only did she stay longer than the 1.5 hours, she gave us way more photos than originally agreed.  Thank you Christina!  With the amount of kids we had, she was very patient as well.

We had a great experience and will recommend her to our friends and families.

Christina Cho is a gifted photographer. She was able to capture our family photos since 2012. She is very talented, patient and works very well with kids. Loved every picture she took. Amazing photographer..10 stars if possible!!!

Christina is amazing. I have 3 very rambunctious, hard-to-corral little boys (twin 6 yr and a 3yr). Her presence, patience and ability to stay focused in that chaos while still pulling off stellar photos blew me away. What's more, she's just a really sweet, funny, genuine person. We loved our experience with her and give her the highest of recommendations.

Can I give more than five stars?? THIS LADY.... is PHENOMENAL. Christina Cho is unbelievably patient, kind, talented and really has passion for her craft. I highly recommend her for your family shoots, Christmas cards, engagement or wedding photos. My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Christina for our engagement shoot and wedding. WE LOVED IT ALLLLLLLLL. The process was so incredibly fun ! She makes you feel really comfortable in front of the camera and it's amazing when you look back in your photos and remember the exact moment of her telling you to sniff his/her face ! TRUST ME.. those sniffing face photos come out REALLY AWESOME. 

We have vowed to make Christina our photographer for life. She's absolutely amazing.

We were beyond thrilled with our whole experience with Christina.  She was very personable and outgoing yet very professional.  I was impressed that she wanted to meet with our family before the shoot just to get a feel for us and what we were all about.  Our photo shoot could not have gone better and we were thrilled with her associate, Lynne.  They were both very interactive with our 21 month old daughter and were able to keep up with her.  The photos were incredible and she was able to capture our special family moments and interactions.  Would very strongly recommend her for your life event and we will certainly use her services again.

I've been to many photography sessions in the past including outdoor and indoor alike, photo session with Christina is by far the most enjoyable one out of all. My family loves taking pictures - what can I say. On the day of the photo shoot, Christina was very punctual, accommodational and professional which earn respect in my book. She has a very kid-friendly and kind attitude and my kids loved her at first sight (they're toddlers) which made them very comfortable around her so the photo session could go more smoothly which was a relief for me. With the skills and the knowledge under her belt, her suggestion for different poses, scene, lighting turns out better than expected. For sure her expertise and creativity plays a big roll to turn a so-so situation into a better one. YES, I would recommend Christina to anyone and NO, I did not receive free or discount for product or service in exchange for this review.

I highly recommend Christina!!! My husband and I got engaged June of 2015 and from the moment I found Christina she was amazing! She is so sweet, understanding and makes the whole planning experience fun and enjoyable.  From the engagement session to the big day on June 25, 2016 she was great! We got our pictures a few weeks after our wedding and they turned out so beautiful!! I love all the little details in the pictures and how she was able to capture ever moment. Thank you so much for celebrating the day with us Christina!

Christina was very friendly, funny, and patience working with us since we didn't know how to pose. :) We had lots of fun and the pictures came out beautiful! Thank you so much!!


I was recommended by a friend to have Christina Cho take my graduation photos. I am so glad that she was my photographer! I am also very happy of how my photos turned out and the quality of them. Christina is amazing at what she does and she makes you feel comfortable during your shoot. I'm not a photogenic person, so I was a bit nervous during my photoshoot, but she told me not to worry. She told me to relax and just have fun with it! I was told what poses to do and which way to look that at the end, I wanted to do another photo shoot. 

Christina is amazing at her job and is very passion at what does. If you have any questions regarding your photoshoot like location, time or props, she's always happy to answer back. The communication that I had with her was spot-on and I couldn't imagine anyone else to take my graduation photos. What I liked about my photos was the use of natural lighting and how scenery was very simplistic. I cannot thank her enough for these photos that I will cherish for a lifetime.

Christina is a gem of a human being, an exceptionally talented photographer, and a consummate professional. My husband and I love the family session she did with us and our little pup. Her shoots are so much fun and we got our pictures back in the blink of an eye! We will certainly bug Christina for future sessions!

I absolutely love this set. I like the black and white and just glad to see the kids in their own environment having fun laughing and crying. Thanks for capturing these moments. It's amazing that you capture the kid's personality so well. This is how I remember the kids at this age. I really can't wait to see how the kids change every year through your photos.

As a Wedding Professional myself I recognize the importance of hiring top quality individuals to make your day the best it can be.  Christina delivered top notch service and photos with a smile and HUGE heart! I can only hope to work together again, bravo!!!

I don't know how to even put into words how amazing Christina is!!!  She's been my sister's go-to photog for all of her big life events- engagement, wedding, maternity and newborn.  When I got engaged, and started looking for photographers in my city of Seattle.  But I kept thinking about all of Christina's amazing work.  On a whim, we asked if she would come to Seattle for our wedding.  Thankfully, Christina enthusiastically agreed!!!
She has such an infectious energy!  With every step of the planning process she made us smile and laugh!  I was a little worried in the beginning about hiring an out of state photographer, but Christina immediately eased any concerns I had.  She really made us comfortable and happy with each step.
She is so fun to work with!  She makes you feel like you are just hanging out with an old friend!  The day of the wedding, she was so organized and excited.  Her energy really feeds into you.  
We got our pictures back this weekend and they are AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!  Every single shot blew us away!  She really does an amazing job at capturing little moments and the candid shots from the dance floor make us feel like we were right back there, dancing the night away!!  
I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend hiring Christina for any of your big or small moments.  She is simply the BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We got our ten year anniversary pictures take with Christina.  They were awesome!  

Christina incredibly talented and passionate about her work.  She is far and away one of the most caring and kindest photographers out there.  If you are able to speak with her in person or on the phone you will know what I mean.

Phillip M.

Awesome and passionate photographer.  Good person with great heart.  Pleasant to work with and very diligent in what she does.  She always listens to what you want and tries to craft the session according to your objectives.  Will offer expert opinions when needed but always aims to fulfill your goals

Besides being one of the best photographers ever, what sets Christina apart from any other is that she is so caring and really takes the time to get to know those who she snaps the pictures of, and by doing that can get some of the most memorable shots with you and your loved ones. She is also the sweetest human being and you can't help but feel joyful around her, it's contagious! She has done our engagement shoot, wedding, and now a family shoot with my husband, our dog, and myself. I kid you not, the photos always get our families emotional. She gets the photos back to you really quick and keeps in contact with you while you're waiting. She's just awesome all around!

I can't believe I haven't written a review for this awesome individual! Christina is not only gifted in this field but is also an amazing woman! After having worked with her for our engagement shoot, and many other shoots (2 other), I was able to see and experience how much she loves what she does! Her desire to capture the greatest expressions of love with her camera was so evident and she was willing to go to great extent to have your memories captured on camera! Christina is truly one of a kind--very talented, loving, and especially thoughtful when it comes to capturing your beautiful memories! I have nothing but praises for her! Book a session with Christina and you will know what I'm raving about!

Christina is awesome! She photographed our wedding back in September and not only did she do an amazing job and deliver some fantastic photos and memories for us but she is fun and enthusiastic about what she does. Great job Christina and keep up the great work. It was a blessing to have you photograph our special day!

For my daughter's first birthday photoshoot, I wanted to have an outdoor setting and not in a photo studio. I met Christina through a good friend of mine.  I had seen her work before through my friend and I liked her style.  I reached out to her and she was very prompt and likable from the beginning.  We met a few weeks before the photoshoot to brainstorm for ideas and get to know more of each other.  We kept in contact via email and she was very helpful in putting together the ideas and what I had envisioned for the photo session.  On the day of the shoot, she arrived promptly and her assistant was very helpful and very friendly as well.  We had some issues getting my daughter's solo pictures but Christina and her crew were very accommodating and didn't force the photos at all.  She was understanding and tried several things/locations to get the pictures we wanted.  Her recommendation for the locations were spot on. I'm amazed she was able to capture my daughter's beautiful smile.  It was difficult to get her to smile nor have her solo pictures taken--combine that with the hot humid weather and a crying baby -- but Christina managed and handled it professionally.  She had a lot of patience, very accommodating and made sure we were comfortable throughout the whole process-- which meant a lot.  She made sure we got the pictures we wanted and they turned out amazing.  I will definitely be recommending and using her services again. Thank you Christina!!


I met Christina Cho through a very very dear friend of mine. She traveled all the way to Sedona, AZ to shoot my wedding! Honestly, as the time passed waiting for the pictures I started to become anxious. I was getting so many pictures from our guests (one of them was a photographer herself). Out of the hundreds I received from everyone I only liked a few. 

BUT BEHOLD, when Christina's pictures finally came I was just in awe. I'm amazed at how she's able to capture such special moments that happen in the blink of an eye. AND know what angles to shoot from. Even the guests looked good! I can go through all my pictures and be able to relive the day. Seriously, who needs a videographer!?! No one really sits around and watches their wedding videos. But people can always take a moment to flip through pictures.  

Working with her is fun and relaxing. I love how my husband and I were able to be ourselves... GOOFY! We're definitely not the type that can just sit and pose for more than 2 minutes. haha. Thank you Ms. Cho for your awesome service!

A couple of years ago, I was planning my wedding and was on the hunt for an amazing photographer. If anyone has done any vendor "shopping", they know it's a hard process - you need to find someone who is within your budget, whose work you love, and someone with whom you have a good connection with. Initially, I met and chose a different photographer, but she got pregnant and sent me an email, telling me that she would be unable to do my wedding. I remember reading that email and feeling a mixture of emotions - delighted for the photographer yet sad and overwhelmed because I had to find another one...and fast. 

Luckily, my friend (who was getting married a few months before me) referred me to Christina. And let me tell you, receiving that email was the BEST thing that could have happened to me.

With Christina, you won't just receive quality service with amazing photos that you would forever cherish, but you would also receive her friendship. She has done my engagement, wedding, maternity, and newborn sessions. I don't ever see myself needing to find another photographer to capture my life's precious moments, and you won't either. She is such a talented photographer, and she gets better and better with every session she does. If you need proof, just look at her work. You'll see a bunch of couples and families who have chosen Christina as their photographer for more than one special occassion. She is simply the best.

Christina is truly an amazing photographer! She did our engagement photoshoot about two weeks ago and we got your photos last week. We love them! She has an eye for capturing the beauty of each moment. Looking back at our photos I realized that many of them were spontaneous shots that she captured when we were laughing or just being ourselves. That made the photos look so natural and fun. She has an extensive knowledge about how to use light, composition, color and people all together in a photo, I am so glad she will also be doing our wedding photography! Photographs are a big deal for me (since I do it for a living myself) and when I saw Christina's work I hoped we could book her for our photos, thankfully she was available then I knew our photos were in good hands, literally!

I recommend you to book Christina for your next photography job, her work ethic and warm personality will make her your life long photographer. You will gain a genuine friend who is committed to help you keep timeless memories alive through her photography.

Christina's work is amazing. She's captured a couple lifestyle sessions for me! She is one of the sweetest most genuine people you will meet. She puts care and love into what she does. Her prices are fair as is her time spent with you. 

What many don't understand is the love labor that goes into her photos: she captures all the photos herself and she sits down and edit every single image picked out. I know a lot of photographers that send out their work to be edited. I have even spoken with those to who don't even take their own photos but gives someone else the job and makes them hand over their work as the other persons. Not Christina! She does it all! 

Thank you so much for capturing amazing moments and for being an amazing individual. Keep up the good work.


Christina recently did my maternity pics with my husband and I loved the location she chose. She also finished the photos in only like a week or two! 
And... so glad that we also got Pure Artistry by Lynne to do the makeup. It was a little difficult for me to get used to my face in real life cause I don't like intense highlights but she understood the camera lighting well to capture me more natural-looking. They are a great team together!


Christina took my engagement shots and my friends loved it and so do I! My fiancee and I are not used to taking pictures together, and he sometimes feel very awkward in front of camera. She did a great job making the both of us feel almost as though she's not there and very comfortable! Also, I do recognize that he also has weird face shines a lot in pictures cause he has oily face, but it also doesn't show up in her pictures.

What I love most working with her is how awesome and beautiful she makes you feel. She makes you feel like you're the top of the world, and she truly puts her clients' joy first. I also love the extra mileS (emphasis intentionally added) she goes through to make you feel like you're getting more than what you give. It's a secret, but it's a NICE secret :). When you work with her, you're not just working with a creepy photographer that just likes to take pictures and edit them and all of your friends wonder why you chose THAT ONE. You're working with a friend who captures the images that makes your good-side identity shine through in the images and your friends in the pictures feel at ease. You'll probably end up becoming a better person after knowing her.

Besides that, I also love her mission and vision with putting family and friends as a priority in her life. In terms of punctuality and answering calls/text, she has always been on top of everything.

PS. Get her prints because she edited my prints again and they look even better!! WOOPEEE! So thankful! 

We had Christina do our family pictures and get some snapshots of our one year old. It was a wonderful experience! Christina was so warm and patient. We especially liked the quick turn around of pictures. The prints she sends you are also fantastic quality. All in all we loved her! I would absolutely go to her again!

My husband, son, and I migrate down to Newport Beach every year for our getaway.  This year we are marking our 7 year wedding anniversary and to celebrate, we thought we would take our family portrait at our Marriott Newport Beach Villa.  Christina did a wonderful job capturing our budding family.  She touched base with us prior to the photo shoot trying to get an idea of concepts we want her to capture for us.  Christina made us felt at ease during our time together and had fun with our 3 year old.  We can't say enough how much we appreciate having her help us capture this moment in my son's life.  We will always treasure the pictures.

Christina has been my go-to photog for all of my family events: wedding, holidays, maternity, baby shower, my son's birth (YES! I'm that comfortable with her!), and newborn photo shoot. I'm looking forward to work with her again for my son's first birthday as I know she will capture all of the highlights on his special day. She's blessed with a vision and I love love LOVE how our photos turned out...ALWAYS! She is AHH-MAYYYYY-ZINNNNGGG!! And I love her! :)

Very happy with the professional work by Christina. Not only did she create a stress free environment for our shoot but she also has the vision to find the right shots.  With two little kids I never expected it to be so easy and fun and still have great photos for our wall and for the grandparents.  We're definitely going to give her another call for the next big event.

All I can say is that Christina is a great photographer. She took pictures at our wedding and we've hired her to take multiple family photos that all came out more than perfect. We like dealing with Christina because she's patient, creative, and artistic. As a matter of fact we even flew her out to Hawaii so she could take our family photos. I would and have recommended her to people.


Where to start? Christina's work is AMAZING!!! There is so much to say about Christina that writing would not be able to suffice to say how awesome she is. My husband and I had the chance of having our anniversary photos taken by Christina and were floored by her beautiful work and personality! Christina is a self-giving, refreshing, extremely talented photographer with a hilarious personality and sense of humor. Plus, she is extremely skilled at what she does and the extensive amount of time she's invested towards increasing her technical knowledge base shows when she gets out there and shoots. With some photographers, their needs come first and their shooting style can be obtrusive. With Christina, her clients come first! Her style is sensitive to the needs of her clients, purposeful, AND nonintrusive. Once you have spent time with Christina and her team you will be spoiled - she really places her clients at the top of her priority list. When my husband and I came into contact with Christina we were overwhelmed by her love, friendship and desire to make others feel beautiful. A love for people really comes through in the photos. She genuinely cares about her clients, consistently places others before herself and is talented at making meaningful memories that will last for ages, leaving you feeling empowered. Christina doesn't just capture photos, she captures real tangible and priceless memories of people that are full of depth. In short... hire her today!!!

Book Christina for your next event and you will not be disappointed!! Not only does she have a keen eye for unique shots, her attention to details and work ethics will make you look better than you ever had in pictures. My fiancé and I had the pleasure of  having her shoot our engagement photos. We're from the East coast and only had a small window to get this done. Christina and her assistant worked with our limited schedule and delivered quality photos in a short time. 

Thanks Christina!!! Can't wait to work with you again soon.

Christina Cho is an awesome photograper!! It was an honor having her as my  photographer, she did such a great job on my engagement and wedding pictures. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them all still looking thru them up til now :)). She made sure all the pictures comes out great and upto the  expectations of the bride (the most). She is a great person and friend, very professional when it comes to work. She is very mellow to work with and not intimadating at all. And that's one of the reason why i really like her and will definitely recommend her to anybody and I myself will go back to her when I start my own family. Pricing is reasonable once you see her work. I'm so glad she finally made a YeLp page, it's about time for the rest of the World to see and know her!!

It has been an honor to meet, befriend, and work with Christina. Not only is she personable, but she has great taste and knows how to warm you up and make you smile during your shoot. We've worked with Christina for the past few photography shoots consecutively, and have been more than satisfied. You can be sure she will be our photographer forever. I highly recommend her, and for you to try her out.

Christina is the absolute best photographer. She has such a keen and amazing eye. She is wonderful with children and makes the while family feel at ease during her shoots.

We are constantly amazed by her photographs, which is why she has become our official family photographer.

Not only are her photos amazing, she is an all around wonderful person. 

Call Christina now for some amazing photographs to cherish forever!!

I recently had the pleasure of seeing Christina shoot for a mutual friend's wedding and her level of professionalism, care, and style completely blew me away! Not only did I attend this wedding and see her in action, but we were also blessed with the opportunity to work alongside her photography business with my DJ event entertainment company! She was an ABSOLUTE pleasure to work with. Our work relationship that night was seamless and just as harmonious as it was with her and all the other vendors at the wedding. I have already recommended Christina to a few of our clients and will continue to do so! Also, her photos that she did for the last wedding were pristine and spectacular! Wonderful work! My business, Sterling Entertainment, will continue to use her stunning work for marketing (since we worked together and she captured my business in action) as we've already had clients compliment on the photography she did!

Matt G.

Christina aka "Chor" did our engagement and wedding pictures back in 2010-2011. 

Our photos came out amazing and we were extremely satisfied! 

All I can say is that her passion, love, and talent for photography has only progressed.

She is definitely worth your Time, Money, and Friendship.

Scott N.

I really enjoyed working with Christina, not only is she a talented photographer but she was very fun and friendly to work with. She made me feel comfortable and who knew hours of taking pictures could be fun? I love my engagement photos, they are nicer than my wedding photos! These are priceless memories I will have to enjoy for years to come!  I highly recommend her!

Have had the opportunity to call Christina a friend as well as an amazing photographer. She is amazing with my daughter. We did a shoot for my daughter's first birthday and can I just say only Christina could capture the realness of my daughter loving animals and people. She genuinely cares for others and puts that in with her work of having amazing talent to capture only the uniqueness that only she can. call her today, you won't be sorry, if anything you will be amazed.

  • Ashley K.

Christina is one talented photographer. Her work ethic and creativity makes her the best. I have had the privilege to work with her personally. Her artistic talent will bring out the best in you. She understands the importance of making someone feel beautiful on camera, in between takes and off camera. She takes time to establish a relationship with you to bring ease and comfort during sessions. I have recommended her to many of my closets family and friends for their special moments in life.
