You have planned your perfect dream wedding, down to every last detail and you can’t wait to see it all come together!
Your big day has come and now you realize what everyone means when they say it goes by so fast and you won’t be able to take it all in.
That’s why it is so important to hire the perfect team to bring it all together. From your coordinator who helped bring your vision to life, to your florist who made it so lush and beautiful and every other vendor in between, and finally down to your photographer who captured every last detail, because, be honest, you didn’t get to take it in because it was a whirlwind of a day.
You’d do it again in a heart beat because everything went perfectly smooth, but some things you just missed, like seeing the overall room before your guests got there, for example. But guess what? Your amazing photographer was there to capture it all and they went beyond your expectations.
While you were busy taking your family photos and then enjoying your cocktail hour with your guests, your photographer was there capturing all those moments you couldn’t be there for so you can relive every detail. From the ceremony to the centerpieces, the invitations and all your guests parting … it was all captured beautifully.
But not everyone can tell that same story after their wedding is said and done. For whatever reason, you decided to go a different route for your photography needs. And of course, you were probably disappointed with the outcome.
Photography is such an important part of your wedding day. Especially since it’s what you are left with at the end of the day, except for the memories. All those details you did get a chance to see were captured by your amazing and wonderful photographer. Things you din’t even know where happing, you are able to see and reminisce with your husband, to laugh or cry over and wonder when the heck your ninja photographer was able to capture that!

Your wedding day is all about you. Sometimes it doesn’t feel like the case, you have your mom, MIL-to-be, bridesmaids and then there’s your guests to consider, and sometimes your dream can get a little clouded.

You’re not alone! We know it’s all about you, even if others temporarily forget that, and that’s how we photograph your day. Building a strong relationship with you from the first moment we meet is a priority for us.

Take a couple just like you, Nicole and Ed. From the first time we chatted we started building exactly that kind of relationship. We love people and noticed their fun loving attitude to life which helped us to advise them in the perfect outfits for their engagement session. Something that they felt comfortable in and showcased their personality. We were able to get a strong sense of Nicole and Ed’s style and this directed all of our decisions through the wedding, and album order.

I didn’t think much of the fact that Nicole had two dresses, as many of our brides do. That was, until the post ceremony photos with her and Ed. He kept calling her a pretty princess – of course, all in loving tones, lol. While obsessed with Nicole’s first dress, to be honest, after getting to know Nicole and Ed, it isn’t what I expected her to wear. They admitted to me mom stepped in and it got carried away. It started as this stunning dress and then mom went crazy with the tiara and all the other added accessories. The second dress is the one Nicole loved and I imagined for her.

And sure enough, as soon as she walked out onto the beach, I knew without a doubt that this was much more her style. No one got in the way of the decision making here.

I made sure that Nicole and Ed had plenty of photos with the look and style that fit their personality. These were the images they were going to love and hang on their wall. It’s who they are! The other photos were stunning and beautiful and they will cherish those and share them with their family, but these are the ones that will reflect who they are. As their photographer, this isn’t something that the couple can just tell you. We had built a relationship with Nicole and Ed from that very first conversation, taking the time to get know them and investing in learning about them and their style and relationship. Because for us, it’s all about you, the bride and groom.

You’re looking at your baby girl and wondering “How did she grow up so fast?” It feels like it was just yesterday you were bringing her home from the hospital, totally unsure how you were going to care for her. Let’s be honest – just keeping this fragile little thing alive was quite an achievement. Now, a year has passed and you are about to celebrate her first birthday. How did this happen so fast, you ask yourself.
In a flash, your little girl went from being this teeny tiny newborn to this bouncy joyful energetic bundle. As you reminisce about the past year, you think to yourself how grateful you are to have captured these moments. Especially the newborn stage that is so precious and short lived. Everyone told you it would go by fast, but you just didn’t really understand it would be this fast.
Those first two weeks were a complete blur. As you were trying to adjust to life with three of you at home … learning to care for your newborn and all the while on little, to no sleep. You’re lucky if you even remember anything from those days. Lucky for you, though, you made one of the smartest decision in hiring a professional to capture your newborn session.
Without those beautiful keepsake photos, you would have forgotten how teeny tiny she was … how precious she was … still is. From that first moment in the delivery room to bringing her home and falling in love with her more and more each day … as you thought your heart was going to burst.
How could she already be turning one? But, here you are planning her first birthday party and all those memories come flooding back. Thankfully you have these beautiful images to help you remember again when she turns 5, or 10 or even 21. You will never forget that small window of time when she was so teeny tiny and adorable.

You have gathered your closest and dearest family and friends to celebrate with you and your (oh my gosh..eek) soon to be husband! These are the people that matter the most to you and you couldn’t be more excited to share this special moment with them! And what a special moment it is: you and your fiancé declaring your love for each other and becoming Husband and Wife.

What’s more special and romantic than that? It probably wasn’t the easiest decision to decide who was going to be there with you on this special day. It’s like a snowball, if you invite this one person then you have to invite these other 10 people that are part of this group and so on and so on. But together, you and your fiancé finally made the tough decisions about who would be your special guests.

Whether it’s a destination or your favorite local spot, many couples are opting to keep their guests list small. Just like Jenny and Alex did with 25 guests attending their wedding at the Montage in Kapalua Bay in Hawaii.

It’s definitely a major challenge to pull off a smaller guest count, but your day can be much more meaningful with only those that truly matter there as witnesses. With no bridal party for Jenny and Alex, it meant everyone was included and that made for some amazing intimate moments. Many of the girls were in the bridal suite helping Jenny get ready and they were having such a blast! They were drinking champagne and having the best laughs! What a relief from the usual pressure of all the bridal party hoopla!

Everyone gathered around for the ceremony as Jenny and Alex said “I do.” There were laughs, tears and glassy-eyed guests all around – they were all so excited for this couple.

The reception was small and intimate as well. It was sweet and heartfelt with all the guests cheering, dancing and getting the celebration started for this couple!

As you are gathering your guest list, don’t be afraid to cut back and make it the intimate and special wedding you and your fiancé have dreamed of. For you, that could be 25 or 250. Remember, it’s all in who you both want to be there to celebrate and witness your love for each other

If you’re looking for ways to keep your wedding modern and clean, but still vibrant and fun, then this modern romantic warehouse wedding is the inspiration for you!
This super fun styled shoot with Nicole George Events and Peony and Plum was killer! While I’ve worked with Susan from Peony and Plum many times, this was my first time working with Nicole. Let me tell you, this is the thing I love about styled shoots. They give you the opportunity to get your creative juices flowing and create some pretty cool and unique things. But even more, you get the opportunity to work with new people. You know how I love meeting and working with new people! It always brings a fresh energy to your work, gives me some new ways to try things, and challenges me grow as a business person and artist. An added plus? I get to share these beautifully inspired images with you!
There was so many great things about this shoot … I don’t even know where to begin. First off, some of my favorite things are the styling for the bride, the hanging floral installment above the table, the touches of black and, of course, that beautiful draping for the ceremonial arch! You see why I enjoyed this was such a gorgeous shoot so much?
Nicole did an amazing job in blending a modern, urban aesthetic with romantic, playful undertones. This shoot had ALL my favorite things rolled into one fabulous visual smorgasbord! Who knew you could do that, lol? Nicole and Susan sure did! I told you how much I was obsessed with the bride’s style and, wow … that stunning bouquet! I could have photographed just our bride for days!
Nicole says, “Howl, an intimate loft in downtown Long Beach, balanced our elegant and refined design with a touch of edginess you only get with industrial style venues. I wanted the venue to speak for itself and enhance the design, so we used the building’s exposed brick, original beams and windows as focal points. It was a no brainer to design our ceremony space in front of the original arching windows. Between the sun pouring in and our asymmetrical hand-dyed draping, the ceremony instantly turns intimate and romantic.”

This Montage Laguna Beach bridal shower was the most beautiful bridal shower I’ve been to in a long time! The beautiful bride-to-be is Lyndsey, one of the amazing team members at Lynden Lane! I mean, everything from the gorgeous flowers to the beautiful blue accents and to all the guests dressed in white … It was a perfect celebration designed by The Lyden Lane Co. The blue plates were the inspiration for the shower – they have the most sentimental meaning for Lyndsey, since they are from her Grandmas’s collection. I love when our clients incorporate wonderful heirlooms and details like that to bring an added personal touch to the event. It pulls at my heart strings and I start to wonder what I have in my family that is an heirloom that I could include in my life and events.
I’ll be honest, I am not that much of a sappy or sentimental person. I tend to get rid of things that I don’t find useful anymore, but there is something about having that special something that has history behind it from generations come before. Whether it’s part of your wedding dress, your rings, or, in this case, your decor. I just love that. In all the weddings I’ve photographed over the years, I’ve come across some unique things and this definitely tops my list. I highly recommend including something that has significant meaning to you on your special days. I remember for my 8th grade graduation, my parents gifted me one of my mom’s rings that I had admired since I was a little. It was a ring that my dad gave my mom before they were married and I had always said I wanted it. So they reset the stone and for my eighth grade graduation, I was presented with this treasured ring. I guess even as a young kid, I have always loved heirlooms, lol. Who knew!

I love photographing my fellow business owners for their portfolio! It’s so important for your brand to have professional images showing who you are as a person and for your business. Working with our business clients is something I love! It is so awesome to come up with some fun ideas that not only show what they do and why they love it but what makes them who they are! Like Taryn here … I remember our conversation … She told me all about her event business specializing in private parties. She wanted images to represent how fun she is, but also that she is a business owner. As our conversation continues, she told me that balloons are a big thing for her – she includes them in every event. Another important fact is that most of her clients are Beverly Hills based.

So together, we came up with a location and theme that showcased these elements for her clients. I didn’t realize how big a part of her business balloons were until she rolled out this giant helium tank from the back seat of her car. I was dying laughing, I mean that is commitment, guys! I couldn’t believe she not only owned this tank, but brought it with her! The lighting and setting were perfect and her outfits not only compliment her and her personality, but her business as well. I had such a fun time getting to know Taryn during the shoot as we walked around the park with giant balloons and captured her fun energetic and sweet personality.

Well, here we are again with one of my favorite people, Lina, and her baby Cruz. I always love to kick off the year with a newborn session. Reminds me of a new start and a fresh beginning. I mean, come on…aren’t they just the cutest to look at? Gives you all the snuggles and cuddle feels, right?!

We know that sometimes deciding to do a newborn session can be tough. You hear that we photograph in the first 3-10 days and you’re wondering, “How in the world am I going to incorporate a newborn session into your already chaotic schedule that this precious little baby has just turned upside down?” We get it. As a matter of fact, Lina was in the exact situation. She kept going back and forth, trying to decide if she should do a session. But she made the decision and just decided to do it – and it was probably her best decision ever!

She called me and we got her scheduled asap, because before you know it, those first 10 days will have come and gone, and the window to photograph a newborn is gone. This is why we highly recommend scheduling the session before baby even arrives. That way, it’s on the calendar and you won’t forget or let the time pass you by. Because, as any new mom will tell you, you won’t remember what day it is, maybe even what your husband looks like, much less have the brain power to call and schedule a newborn session.

Lina told me she is so glad that she did it. Even though it was a struggle during those first 2 weeks and maybe not in the budget for that month, she cherishes those images to this day and reflects back on how tiny he was. All the emotions of having this little man come into her and her husbands world and changing their meaning of love and life come flooding right back. It doesn’t get any better than that!

This time of year gets everybody talking about the coming trends for the New Year. What are the hottest colors for 2018? What fashion styles will be in? 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 this year!

1. Navy is the New Black

From tuxes to invitation to bridesmaid dresses, navy is the new black. Think of it as your new favorite neutral!

Vendors: photography: Krista Mason Photography // Event Design by The Lynden Lane Company   // Venue: Montage Laguna Beach //Florals Keith J Laverty  // Linens La Tavola Fine Linen   // Furniture Found Rentals  // Tableware casa de perrin

2. Silver and Chrome

Every girl needs a little bling in her life..metallics are shifting from gold and rose gold to silver and chrome this wedding season!

Vendors: photography: Krista Mason Photography // event design: A Stunning Affair // Florals: Peony and Plum // Linen: LUXE Linen

3. Formality

I’ll admit I am super excited about this one. Black tie is back! From outdoors to indoors, couples are opting to have a more formal event, even requesting a black tie attire. With lots of elegance and classic touches in design and attire, this year is sure to be all about the formal.

Vendors: photography: Krista Mason Photography // Event Design: Aliana Events // Venue: The London West Hollywood

4. Hanging Flowers

Hanging flower installments are here to stay and we couldn’t be happier. Playing with heights, textures and various viewpoints, flower installments will continue to be on trend for 2018.

Vendors: photography: Krista Mason Photography // Venue: Howl // Event Coordination: Nicole George Event Planning & Design // Floral Design & Calligraphy: Peony & Plum // Rentals: Signature Party Rentals

5. Texture

Texture everywhere! Expect to see lots of texture and layers in the details – from the linens to flowers and even the dresses!

6. Entertainment

Couples are looking for new and creative ways to entertain their guests. Couples want their guests to have an incredible experience and are incorporating unique ways to keep them entertained. Such as photobooths, food entertainment, and live performances like these amazing synchronized swimmers.

Vendors: photography: Krista Mason Photography // event planning – Chic Celebrations // florals: Lauryl Lane  // venue: Hummingbird Nest Ranch

7. Woodsy Look

Gone are the days of rustic and burlap; 2018 will bring a outdoorsy, woodsy look. Think wood accents and lots of greenery as florals. Greenery will be everywhere, bringing in that natural woodsy element.

Vendors: photography: Krista Mason Photography // event planning – Chic Celebrations // florals: Lauryl Lane  // venue: Hummingbird Nest Ranch

8. Dark and Moody

The color trend of the year will be dark and moody. With darker textured flowers, and color pallets that are darker, richer, more dramatic.

9. Food Trends

Food is becoming a top priority for our couples. Gone are the days of bland chicken cooked a million different ways. Please your inner foodies with unique food stations or food that is personalized and has special meaning to the couple.

Vendors: photography: Krista Mason Photography // venue: The Fig House // catering: roomforty

10. Smaller Guest Count

More and more couples are cutting back on their guests list these days and only inviting those that are near and dear to them. Who will be in your inner circle?
