About Me!


Hi, I’m Shari!

I am wedding and portrait photographer based in San Diego, but I LOVE to travel…hint, hint  🙂

I am a wife, and a mama to two adult boys. I have been a photographer for over half of my life.  That passion, along with my life experiences, have molded me into who I am today, a truly caring person, who loves my family, friends, and clients .

I am a pretty fun and relaxed person, who loves to read, scrapbook, and get outside.  While I really enjoy a yummy lobster and cheesecake dinner, I’m totally in for an In & Out burger and fries too!  In my down time, you might catch me at home with a good book or movie, drinking a Pepsi, and munching on some popcorn.  When we’re out, it’s usually camping in the mountains or desert, or heading out for a ride on the Harley.  If you check out my Instagram feed, it’ll be full of food and outdoorsy images!

I really love capturing all the stages in people’s lives.  Whether it is your wedding day, or just a family get together, I promise it will be fun, relaxed, and beautiful.  I am a huge believer of preserving all of your precious memories, so know that while they are kept backed up and safe, I also include either prints or albums in my packages for you to have for a lifetime.  I truly believe that friends take better pictures than strangers, so I’m really excited to get to know what makes you YOU!  Contacting me is super easy, just shoot me an email:  sharibarnes@cox.net, or call/text me:  619-277-4982.  Let’s meet up for coffee, or grab some food and drinks, and hang out!
