I COULDN'T HAVE ASKED FOR ANYTHING MORE. THEY ARE TALENTED, ORGANIZED, PROFESSIONAL AND EFFICIENT. THEY KEPT US ON SCHEDULE, CHECKED IN WITH US TO ENSURE WE WERE HAVING FUN AND WEREN'T OVERWHELMED! I FELT REALLY WELL TAKEN CARE OF. THEY ARE AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHERS AND ALL AROUND WONDERFUL PEOPLE!

Krista and Aldo are the best! They are super accommodating, friendly, and professional. My engagement, boudoir and wedding photos are To-Die-For and worth every penny. Krista knows how to position you to look the most flattering and for a woman, that's key! Krista and Aldo have since become our friends and we are actually meeting for brunch this month. Love them and would highly recommend them!

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. HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND KRISTA MASON PHOTOGRAPHY FOR YOUR BIG DAY!!

Thank you so much for being our photographer. Our wedding pictures were beyond our expectations. You are a master at what you do and I am extremely happy that we picked you for our wedding. You were able to capture the important moments and the little details of the day. We appreciate everything that you did for us and can not thank you enough.

JEN + MIKE

IT WAS REALLY IMPORTANT FOR US TO HAVE A PHOTOGRAPHER THAT NOT ONLY TOOK GREAT PICTURES BUT THAT WE FELT COMFORTABLE BEING OURSELVES IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA. FROM THE FIRST MOMENT WE MET KRISTA & ALDO, THEY WERE SO EASY & UP-FRONT THAT WE COULDN'T HELP LIKING THEM RIGHT AWAY. THEY JUST GO ABOVE AND BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY! YOU ARE THEIR MAIN FOCUS WHEN YOU ARE WITH THEM. YOU CAN'T HELP BUT BE YOURSELVES AROUND THEM AND IN TURN IT REFLECTS IN THE PICTURES. KRISTA & ALDO CAPTURED US SO WELL, FROM THE GOOFY TO THE SERIOUS. I CAN HONESTLY SAY WE HAD THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHERS!

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.

I had to build my confidence and sharpen my talents in order to continue nurturing my passion. That meant making a bunch of mistakes and fearfully investing in workshops and experts along the way. 

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.
