"I am so happy that we selected Krista Mason Photography for our wedding and engagement pictures! I immediately fell in love with Krista’s soft, romantic style. While my wedding day was a complete blur, Krista’s images hold the key to remembering how special that day was for us. Working with Krista and Aldo was great – I felt instantly comfortable with them, they were reliable and I could rest assured that my pictures would turn out wonderful." - Raina + Matt
The turning point was a photography workshop led by Jerry Ghinois, a leading expert in the wedding industry. It literally changed my world and how I ran my business.
After hearing Jerry speak in a seminar at WPPI, I decided, after much fear and trepidation, to invest in his next class – just two weeks away. I spent those two weeks filled with both fear and excitement. I was both frightened and excited by the thought of being among so many talented photographers, as well as being in the same room with Jerry!
What excited me most was the chance to learn how to up-level my business. I left Jerry’s workshop a better photographer and business person and with a new business name – Krista Mason Photography. This was a defining moment in my career: I was ready to embrace change, growth, and success.
To this day, Jerry’s class is one of the most impactful and life changing experiences I have ever had. Today, I’m proud to say my images grace the editorial pages of the industry’s most sought out publications. After 20 years of life lessons, I now eagerly wake up each morning excited to create one more story that awakens emotion-filled memories!
One of my favorite quotes by Jerry is this: “You don’t have to be the best, just better than yesterday.” It’s opened a door for me to willingly embrace change…and I’ve not looked back since.
As a sought after worldwide destination photographer, I love that I live my life as a visual storyteller that inspires emotion. Whether its a dreamy landscape framing my beautiful bride and her handsome groom or capturing a pensive look during a private portrait session, I illuminate love through my lens.
However, it was not always that way.
I had to start my passion somewhere to build my confidence and sharpen my talents even if it meant making a bunch of mistakes and fearfully investing in workshops and experts to mentor me along the way.
I began working with other photographers at 15 years old. At a young and naïve 19, I really thought I was ready for the challenge of my first solo shoot. I remember that wedding as if it were yesterday. I charged $500 for 6 hours of wedding coverage. Yeah, I know!
We were still shooting film in 1999. I was convinced I would never switch to digital. I didn’t have the advantage of sneaking a look to make sure everything was looking great. Needless to say, the photos didn’t come back as spectacular as I envisioned. They were good, but not great.
Honestly, I made quite a few mistakes and the client definitely noticed them. She seemed happy with everything and even grateful, but I could tell she was a little disappointed. This was just the beginning of the road to visual storytelling.
