This shoot at the Fig House has my heart!
Fig House
One of the things I love best about being an artist is the ability to redefine 0ne’s self. Even when your art is photographing other people’s vision for their perfect wedding, being able to express personal growth through your art is exhilarating.
Fig House
I am sure you are asking, “What they heck does this have to do with this amazing shoot?” Well, I discovered a little more of myself last year when I started gravitating toward the weddings and events with bold colors. I have a newly discovered love for these rich deep hues. (My current obsession is with black and white!)
You see I always thought I wanted to be a soft dreamy neutral photographer; I thought it told a dreamier story. But the reality is I find beauty in all colors and most styles. I still have my core photography style, but I’ve just expanded it a tad bit. That is why I love collaborations like this one. It’s not just about sharing what could be, but exploring outside of the box as an artist. When all this amazingness collides, the end result is an out of this world stunning editorial shoot!
Fig House
Ok, back to this shoot! Besides getting to work with my dream team, what I loved most about this shoot is it took me way out of my comfort zone and I couldn’t be happier! I love these rich bold colors and the entire vibe of this shoot. I mean, I could talk for days about every single detail. You know my love of details and this shoot had them all! From the invitations to the table decor and of course in our bridal attire.
Fig House
OMG! The style of this bride and groom was off the hook! I am not gonna lie … I tried to rock the glam head piece while shooting. It might be my new shooting look – lol. And can we talk about the grooms velvet jacket? YES, please! There was so much goodness from this shoot, I can’t get over it.

Fig House
The Fig House, like many LA venues, is an amazing backdrop and has so many built-in WOW factors. But, I am all about transforming a space to be unique to you. Just like they always do, that is what this dream team did for this shoot. They took a rad venue space with so much already going for it and transformed it into this incredible dream wedding with a bright and bold vibe to match.
Fig House
Gianna, of Chic Celebrations, shares, “For our bright and modern styled shoot, we wanted to embrace all of that at every turn. Every detail was a creative marriage of the space and the art in it. We chose to use a mix of darks and brights with warm golds and black. The Fig House features vibrant abstract art throughout their space, the perfect backdrop for statement pieces. Love the way that bougainvillea chandelier looks like another piece of art!”
Fig House
The bouquet was what did it for me. Lauryl is a true floral master and she really knocked it out of the park on this one. In fact, it was voted one of the top bouquets on Green Weddings Shoes. The cake was voted one of the best of the year too!
Fig House
You know you have a great inspiration when two pieces of art in this case the bouquet and cake are voted best of the year. There is no question about it. I want to frame that bouquet!
Fig House
I love the base layer of the two piece combo from BHLDN. It’s an extra bonus that we were able to get three different looks with just a simple caplet or hair accessory change! I love accessories, don’t you?

I am thrilled to say this isn’t my only bold shoot of the year, so keep an eye out for more bolds and blacks! I am so excited, are you?!?!

Who loves a great dinner party! Time to connect … eat … drink … enjoy. We are all foodies at heart! I don’t care what you say! You may eat differently than me, but you can’t tell me you don’t like a delicious meal, no matter the calorie count. (Can you tell I have adjusted my diet recently? lol) roomforty is definitely THE place for the modern LA foodie!
RoomForty {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]
That is what I love about weddings and events these days…food is no longer boiled, grilled, stuffed, dry, boring chicken! YES!!! Thank you to whoever made that shift happen! The joke used to be what kind of chicken are we having tonight! I am so excited for all of you; now you have amazing options when it comes to food.
RoomForty {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]
And let me tell you, Roomforty … YUMMMMM!!!!! I have had the pleasure of photographing several of these popup dinners and they are so fun. They are what made me fall in love with the gang at roomforty.
RoomForty {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]
But, you know what I love best about roomforty – I mean other than the food, the passion and love and soulfulness from the kitchen prep to the serving? They don’t just cook and serve food. These guys want you to have an experience with the food. Now that is what I am talking about. Life truly is all about the experiences, not just the results, but how those experience really make us feel, think, react and remember.
RoomForty {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]
That is why roomforty and I are a match made in heaven. We both want you to experience more than just food or photos. We want you to have a genuine experience and remember every detail. It’s everything you’ve dreamt of, right?
RoomForty {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]
One of the favorite questions ever asked of me by one of the lovely people at roomforty is, “What was your favorite childhood dish and why?” My answer, while a little embarrassing, was so intriguing. It made me think of things I hadn’t thought of in years. Who knew that food could produce so many thoughts, memories and feelings.
Oh you are still waiting for my answer. Ok, I will share if you do. Go ahead, leave a comment below with your favorite food. OK, indulge me for a few minutes.
RoomForty {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]
My favorite dish is fried chicken. I swear I would order it every meal if I could! You ask what does this have to do with my childhood? Well, my favorite food as a kid was McDonalds’ chicken nuggets and KFC chicken strips. (OK, don’t judge.)  There are many happy memories associated with these trips to KFC and MickyD’s. I can’t pinpoint why, but it brings me joy to think about these times as a kid. Thank goodness my pallet has matured, but I still love some fried chicken occasionally!
RoomForty {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]
No, my parents didn’t have me living off of these meals, but they were very, very young and trying to juggle a child and a career in addition to growing up themselves. I spent many evenings at my grandmother’s house. Whenever my parents asked what I wanted for dinner before heading off to my grandmother’s … I swear it was always KFC!
RoomForty {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]
When I was very young, it was always MickyD’s, or so goes the story my dad will tell you! He tells of a time I was being rewarded for something I had accomplished when I was five years old. My dad asked me, “What do you want for dinner, you can have anything you want.” My response? “McDonalds chicken nuggets.” My dad swears he tried very hard to get me to eat anything else, but I held my ground … haha!
RoomForty {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]
Ok, now I want to hear yours. Seriously, when you’re done reading this post, you’ve just GOT to tell me what your favorite food was when you were growing up! OK, I’ve been talking a lot about one of the most common American food dishes. Let me show you a few more examples of the amazing food the crew at roomforty can put together for your next event.

Don’t these dishes look absolutely amazing? The food, while not friend chicken, is incredible – trust me! I’m sure if you ask, they’ll make you some fried chicken, haha! You HAVE to connect with roomforty to cater your wedding or event. Oh … they also have these really cool pop-up dinners … they’re so much fun! They make for a great evening to celebrate with people you know or maybe even make new friends.

Springtime is the perfect time of year to host a brunch! Whether you’re hosting just you and someone special or you’re planning for a whole group, you want everything to be perfect. I think it was Benjamin Franklin who said, “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.” So, like anything done well, planning is key. Have a plan and stick to it and you’ll be so happy with your efforts! To help you host the perfect brunch without all the stress, we’ve put together some tips to help you pull off that stress-free brunch.

I partnered with event designer, RO & Co Events to offer some dreamy inspiration. I just love how they used Pantone’s Color of the Year, Greenery, in this St. Paddy’s Day themed brunch decor!

brunch {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

Set a simple menu

Once you know how many people you’ll be hosting, the first thing you’ll want to do is decide what you’re going to serve everyone to eat. Choose simple dishes that complement each other. Be sure to plan both sweet and savory, have some fruit and a simple salad. Decide on one main dish and keep the rest simple.

The Night Before

Set everything you’re going to need out the night before. Coffee cups, plates, napkins, silverware, bread baskets…anything you’ll need. Set it on the table or out on the kitchen table. Trust me with this one. I once realized 20 minutes before my guests arrived that I had forgotten the strawberries and had to make a dash to the store.

Get Ahead of the Game

Make as much as you can the night before. That way you won’t have to get up at 5am the morning of your brunch to start cooking before the rooster crows. You can even make some canapés the weekend before, freeze them, and then thaw them the night before. Or better yet, pre-order some dishes from your favorite restaurant or catering company to be delivered the day before. You can even use an event designer, like my friends at RO & Co Events to offer some dreamy inspiration and save you some time.

Need some ideas on things that you can make the night before or even weeks before and just re heat? Check out make ahead brunch recipes I found on PopSugar!

brunch {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

Don’t forget the Drinks

Don’t forget to get everything ready for Bloody Mary’s and Mimosas … I mean, it is brunch after all. Make sure you have enough cocktail glasses and champagne flutes on hand. If you’re having a large group, you can rent these from your local event rentals company or pick up a few extras at your local Pier One or Pottery Barn.

Keep things in perspective

Be sure you set realistic expectations for yourself and the party. There will seem like there’s so many little details to remember, but the most important thing to keep in mind is the reason you’re having this brunch: to spend time with friends and family. Nobody expects you to pull off a Martha Stewart scaled event…they just want to spend time with you!

Want to turn your brunch into the perfect proposal? My good friends at RO & Co Events can help you turn your perfect, stress-free brunch into the proposal of your dreams.

This contemporary Millwick wedding was a perfect reflection of this super fun couple. Every last thing was meaningful to both the bride and the groom without any over-the-top wedding hoopla!

contemporary millwick wedding {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

The Millwick is definitely one of my favorite venues of all time. Their plant wall is absolutely gorgeous and everyone adores the roll up garage doors that give an edgy industrial look to the whole venue.

I have to admit – I was slightly obsessed with Erin’s shoes. All the metallics and print were killer and combined with her simple yet elegant wedding dress was an amazing touch. She looks stunning!

Drew is looking just as good! I can’t believe how he matched his tie color so closely to the floral palette! They sure did make for a cute couple… and did I mention fun? That’s what I love about them they were laid back fun and really down for anything we asked.

These two are probably some of the coolest people I’ve ever met, maybe even too cool for me! I mean…they served craft beer during their ceremony! I think Aldo was more in love with them after that than anyone! I was so honored they chose me to photograph their amazing wedding!

You could tell they really love each other. They wanted to share their special moment of committing to each other with their friends and family, but also keep it simple while having a good time. While photos were important to them, they also wanted to not be overwhelmed or miss their party because of it. And that’s just what we did for them.

The Little Branch knocked it out of the park with her farm to table look. All the vibrant reds and purples really brought some life and a gorgeous color pop to this modern venue.

This venue was perfect for Erin and Drew and their edgy style. Their goal was to throw the best party ever for their friends and family. I think everyone can agree that is exactly what happened.

I asked Erin and Drew what their favorite part of the venue was. They both agreed it was this bar. I could definitely enjoy a cocktail sitting at this bar!

What Erin and Drew were looking for was a good party with photography that would capture all the emotion of their day without being over-posed. They wanted beautiful images and I believe that’s exactly what they got.

Of course, I must share one of the most gorgeous maternity sessions ever! One of my favorite couples and best friends, Natalie and Peyman, are expecting their first baby!

Ekkkk! I am so excited for them and can’t wait to meet my little baby noodlette.

These two are just the cutest and most photogenic, even if they think otherwise. (Check out their engagement shoot, too!) I’m telling you, not many people are actually comfortable in front of the camera, myself included. But, once we get to know you, no one will ever think you’re camera shy again! Am I right?!? I mean look at these stunning images!

I am obsessed with a clean soft white look with some blow out windows! There is just something so majestic about a mommy to be with the glow behind her and in neutrals for that gorgeous look of purity.

There is something so beautiful and special about capturing a mommy and her baby bump. The excitement, the anticipation, the love that just keeps growing.

Many women debate whether or not they should have a maternity session. Once they finally give in, they rarely regret it. I say go for it, I know it can be scary with your body changing and feeling like a little alien is growing inside of you, but trust me … you will not be disappointed with a beautiful maternity session like this! It’s such a short and memorable time that you will cherish for a lifetime. Oh, aren’t these guys just adorable?

I’ve got a gorgeous destination engagement shoot for you!

destination engagement {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

Love is in the air and these two can feel it, too. This wonderful couple from New York picked the most beautiful setting for their engagement session … Santa Ynez. It also happened to be just a week before their destination wedding!

destination engagement {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

They rented an amazing home for the week. We spent the afternoon wandering around some of the most stunning settings including a barn and gorgeous vineyard. Some of my favorite images came out of the time they spent running through the vineyards together!

We would have gotten even more awesome images, but we missed out on some epic locations. Many of our pre-determined photo spots ended up being closed for our protection. Of all things, the one and only weekend was declared hunting season! Of course, we didn’t want to be confused for a deer, so I guess we should be thankful for some of those spots being closed.

How about these breathtaking sunsets? The majestic hills of Northern California are so very different from our Southern California beach sunsets. I had the most fun photographing our couple as they enjoyed the magnificent views. Those colors, especially the magenta in the sunset just blew me away! I can’t wait to shoot there again!

I am so excited to finally start catching up with all our wonderful shoots from this past year. Kicking off with sharing this editorial shoot with you! I thought it would be some fun inspiration for Valentine’s Day week with the bold mauves, purples and copper! The teams from Harmony Creative Studio and Shindig Chic totally rocked it with this one!
geo styled shoot {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

Geometric shapes were paired with a soft, romantic palette of mauve, copper and natural wood tones. They provide the perfect design inspiration for your early fall wedding or party. I absolutely adore the way the designers matched a fresh palette with some really fun ideas. It’s the perfect inspiration for those brides and grooms who are planning a stylish and unique day that tells their story.

OK, let’s take a look at some of my favorite images!

Margaux from Harmony Creative Studio had a great comment about our venue: “The ranch-like setting and open meadow of new venue Oak Canyon Ranch in Agoura Hills, California was the perfect ‘tranquil’ setting. With several different ceremony and reception locations to choose from, it allowed us so much creative freedom! We choose to have our ceremony under a fantastic natural arch in one of the many majestic oak trees on the property, draping ivory silk contrasted with a gorgeous purple vintage rug from Pretty Vintage Rentals (who also supplied our fabulous lounge set-up, how great is that lilac sofa!), for a dramatic yet romantic backdrop.”geo styled shoot {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

Tulaloo Stationery Studio got things started off on the right foot with a pretty watercolor style stationery suite. The colors were absolutely perfect!

And I adore this pink, mauve and lilac bouquet Shindig Chic designed for the shoot. Ask your florist for peonies, ranunculus, anemones, lilac, roses, veronica + olive branch!

geo styled shoot {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

How gorgeous is this modern braided ponytail by Lauren Cory from KBGLAM? Love it!

geo styled shoot {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

You know I love my cocktails, so I was especially delighted with the signature drinks crafted for the shoot! His: ‘Raspberry Moscow Mule’ with Vodka, Fresh Lime Juice, Raspberries + Ginger Beer. Hers: ‘Blackberry Harmony’ with Blackberries, Lemon Gin + Tonic.

geo styled shoot {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

I am so in love the entire look of this shoot. I think the color story and a lot of the table top ideas would translate beautifully to home design or any kind of event.

The soft linen napkins and delicate silk hung behind the table were the perfect soft touch to the geometric terrariums, copper chargers and beautiful florals.

The floral team also played off the succulents in the floral design and used potted succulents as escort cards. This was a super easy DIY project using wood pots from the Target craft section, and painting patterns with copper paint.

I hope you’re inspired to design your day with a fun palette and some unique, geometric design elements! Here’s some more fun images from the shoot!

I’m so excited to show you this all white birthday party for Yoleine, owner of Yellow Bird Events.

all white {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

She put together an amazing all white birthday party! She even got all of her guests to wear all white – no way could I have pulled that off. But she’s an awesome wedding planner, so I guess people are used to her telling them what to do – haha! I loved everything about this party. I could tell every one had so much fun! Here they all are, all dressed in white! They were ready to get buck wild!

This time of year gets everybody talking about the coming trends for the New Year. What are the hottest colors for weddings? What will the bridesmaids be wearing? What will the florals look like? What will guests see when they walk into the venue?

If you know anything about us here at Krista Mason Photography, you’ll know that we are ALL ABOUT THE DETAILS!! Let’s talk about what all of the gorgeous brides-to-be will be pinning to their wedding Pinterest boards!

1. Greenery

So many wedding planning decisions are on hold until the bride-to-be decides on her color scheme. Top of the list for color choices? Why, the color of the year – Pantone 15-0343 – Greenery, of course!

trends {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]Vendors: photography: Krista Mason Photography // event planning – Chic Celebrations // florals: Lauryl Lane  // venue: Hummingbird Nest Ranch

2. Bold and Bright

Wedding planners are also forecasting bright and bolder colors, like these featured in this colorful centerpiece!

trends {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]Vendors: photography: Krista Mason Photography // venue: The Fig House // event design: Chic Celebrations // florals: Lauryl Lane

3. Neutral tones with bright accents

Looking for something a little more subtle? How about dreamy palettes of greys, creams, and gold? How awesome are these pops of mustard yellow and rich plum as accent colors?

4. Black is chic

And one of the most chic of accent colors? Black – bet you didn’t see that one coming! Subtle black accents help round out the romantic florals and softer linens, adding the perfect balance between masculine and feminine.

5. Garden theme

Since Greenery was chosen as this year’s color of the year, it only seems logical to incorporate more greenery into your wedding design. This garden inspired wedding is so elegant and goes a long way toward adding a touch of nature to your big day.

6. Lush florals

While we’re talking about floral inspiration, you’ll want to ask your floral designer to come up with something more dramatic and artistic this season – something like this lush bouquet! So many gorgeous colors and textures!!

7. Unique Escort Cards

As a modern bride, you might be looking to stepping away from some of the more traditional wedding ideas. How about getting a little more creative with your escort cards? Like this travel inspired wedding reception!

trends {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]Vendors: photography: Krista Mason Photography // event planning – Chic Celebrations // florals: Lauryl Lane  // venue: Hummingbird Nest Ranch

8. Lounge areas

And while your guests are waiting to be seated, why not treat them to a cozy space that encourages your guests to mix and mingle, all the while creating a comfortable overall flow of your space.

9. Dessert displays

Dinner has been served, plates are being cleared, and now everyone’s sweet tooth is waking up. Guests can make their way over to your cleverly designed dessert stations and choose for themselves from any number of choices you may have waiting for them.

10. Art-inspired cakes

Considered to be the focal point of any wedding reception, the wedding cake is usually the pièces de ré·sis·tance. This year’s cakes promise to be almost too pretty to eat – well, almost! Like this geo inspired cake, just about anything can inspire your wedding cake design.

11. White bridesmaids dresses

Probably one of the harder decisions for the bride-to-be is finding a bridesmaid dress that matches your color scheme AND looks gorgeous and flatters all of her bridesmaids. Stress no more! The trend of the bride being the only one in white is out! Elegant and eye-catching, you’ll find beautiful bridesmaid dresses in many different shades and tones of white and cream.

12. Off-the-shoulder bridesmaid dresses

And the bride doesn’t have to be the only one with bare shoulders. Off-the-shoulder bridesmaid dresses add an element of elegance to everyone in the bridal party.

13. Boudoir sessions

Speaking of everyone in the bridal party, why not schedule a day of pampering for you and your girls and then end it with a boudoir shoot? It’s a super fun bonding experience with the bridesmaids and you have the added bonus of having beautiful, artistic, sexy photos to give your groom on your wedding day!

Don’t you just love an adorable newborn! All that fresh little squishiness and their tiny little cuteness?!?! Meet Nathan …

nathan {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

This tiny little cute thing is especially special. He’s part of a family that is near and dear to my heart. I’ve enjoyed being a part of their lives and so many of their milestones. It all started with mom and dad’s engagement and wedding and most recently this little guy. I’ve had the honor of photographing three out of the four kids newborn sessions. So as you can imagine I adore this family!

I love watching their family grow! Especially the very special relationship the kids have with each other – both the good and the bad! Haha! Each of these kids has their own very different personality!

Honestly, watching them all grow and develop such amazing bonds … that’s something I cherish as a photographer! I’m very grateful to have the opportunity to be a big part of this family’s cherished moments.
