You’re going to love this Vasquez Rocks maternity shoot!

Rachel and Mark are near and dear to me. They have not only been clients since their wedding in 2010, but have become wonderful friends! I just love when that happens. Good people that have a beyond amazing experience is what makes my day! That is why I love what I do.

This couple is a true testament to how choosing the right photographer is a big deal. It’s imperative that you don’t look back with regret. Rachel and Mark never have, in fact they have come back year after year and I look forward to many years to come of building a long lasting friendship with them.

I have had the opportunity to photograph their wedding and each new fur family member they have added since. And now, as you can see, they are expecting a little human baby now! (It’s a boy!) I can’t wait to meet him and photograph him for years to come. Congratulations Rachel and Mark! xoxo

How about this dream wedding for you! A glass chapel and a reception with an epic ocean view in Palos Verdes! A romantic elegant wedding filled with love, laughter, and, of course, a good party!

Karen and Eric got married at Wayfarers Chapel and continued their celebration at Trump National Golf Course. But first, they started the day at the ever so beautiful Terranea. It was a perfect day … a day this couple has dreamed of for years, especially since they’ve been together for 13 years!

Read this note from Karen and you will see why I love them:

“Eric grew up in Rancho Palos Verdes. Spending most of our weekends in this beautiful city, we have always known we would likely get married here. We decided to have a smaller, more intimate ceremony with only family and close friends at Wayfarers Chapel and then host a bigger reception at Trump National. Our ‘first look’ was held at Terranea where we stayed for the weekend. We went for a soft, romantic and elegant wedding design, filled with candlelight and neutral flower palettes with greenery. The wedding was filled with so much love, laughter (and alcohol of course) and we could not be any happier with every wedding detail.” – Karen

I mean come on … a soft romantic elegant wedding filled with love, laughter and, of course, alcohol, it doesn’t speak any more to me than that! You already know you need to find a photographer that you connect with … a photographer that captures the essence of who you are and the beautiful aesthetic of your dream wedding. This wedding was a match made in heaven for myself and Karen and Eric!

You also know you need someone proven and who is committed to giving you a fantastic experience. You want an experience that you can look back at your investment knowing every penny was well spent. Karen and Eric got that for sure, especially since we made Eric smile and enjoy (or tolerate) the day. I actually have to give Aldo all the credit for that! I guess it’s a guy thing! Karen has beautiful photos she can look back on with pure love and joy, remembering her dream wedding just the way she had imagined it!

palos verdes palos verdes palos verdes

Karen was so at ease when getting ready, we were able to capture some beautiful and goofy moments with her! How cute is she with her Mom and Sister? I love the relationship that the three of them have. Even more so since I was able to capture it a few times throughout the day.

The first look was perfect as Karen walked up to Eric with the beautiful ocean in the background and a perfect overcast day -all to make a breathtaking scenic.

I will admit … typically I am not a fan of multiple locations for your wedding day since it can take away from the whole experience with all the traveling around, but in this case each and every location was stunning! And, of course, Karen was totally down for all the photo requests, lol. Eric earned some huge brownie points that day. He doesn’t like having his pictures taken. But after getting to know us at their engagement session, he felt more comfortable with us. While I’d love to say he was all up for everything we asked, he politely tolerated it all with a smile, lol. (Gotta keep it real, lol.)

Ahhh..one of my favorite things. Cocktails! Even better? Happy Friday Cocktails!!
I will take a good hand crafted cocktail anytime! And aren’t they so pretty! Gianna and Lauryl really took pretty to a new level with this event. I mean killer – right! Now you guys know why this is one of my favorite dream teams! They know style!
I have always had a love for cocktails, but it wasn’t until a recent workshop with Tal of Pharmacie that I learned about the goodness of handcrafted fresh made cocktails.
My appreciation grew so much that after the workshop I went to a bar supply store and purchased everything I needed to make my own juices and syrups and began experimenting with all sorts of cocktails. Do you feel a cocktail party coming on….ummm, I sure do!
I have to say Pharmacie makes the most incredible cocktails ever, to the point that it could be dangerous. Trust me … been there! Haha, thanks Uber!
What I love most is Tal’s passion for his craft. We all have a skill, but what really makes what we do special and unique is the passion we have for our craft. And it shows in our work. We care so far beyond the service we’re providing. It goes even deeper – we want you to feel ecstatic and just as passionate as we do. We want you walk away not just with good food, cocktails, florals, and photos, but an experience that moves you. When you take a sip or bite or look at your photographs, it should invoke an emotion that says, “Yes, that’s exactly what I had in mind. How did they know?” Trust us, we just do, and it isn’t just what we do, but who we are.
And you can see that in this stunning cocktail editorial shoot. I’m asking you, has a cocktail really ever looked so good? I know you wanna go make one right now – I do!

You’ll love this Griffith Observatory engagement shoot! Maggie and Chad are adorable, fun and easy going, but they don’t consider themselves photogenic. Who can relate to that?
Don’t be shy, I know most of you feel this way. I know Aldo and I do.
Having your pictures taken can be dreadful, yes I am aware. But this is why I love what I do and have found my dream job.
I not only capture what you are feeling (the good feelings, lol) but also help you see yourself in the best possible light – all while making you feel at ease, beautiful and amazing.
And that is exactly how Maggie and Chad felt through out their session. They were at ease and comfortable, even when I asked them to do some close snuggling that made them a bit uneasy (they aren’t big on PDA).
The end result was some amazing engagement images at Griffith Observatory that they now gloriously share with all their friends and family.
They trusted me and found a photographer that they connected with and understood their needs.
Isn’t that what you want too? The bottom line is that excellence starts and ends with your experience, where you literally don’t have to worry about a thing. Oh, and of course, if you get beautiful images in the end? Well, then it’s all worth it!

Ahhh This wedding … this venue … this couple … I could gush all day! But instead, let me tell you a little about this amazing couple and their dream wedding at Sunstone Vineyards.
Haley + Sev live in New York and decided to have their wedding in Central Coast California! I love central coast weddings! They are so beautiful! The lighting and the vibe is so very different, but in all the most amazing ways!
I was super excited from the first moment I connected with Haley! Especially when she told me she was having her wedding at Sunstone. My heart started to beat even faster, it maybe even skipped a beat! Sunstone is one of the most amazing venues with it’s beautiful vineyards and gorgeous villa that reminded me so much of my recent trip to Italy. So you know I was already hooked. After a Skype call with the lovely couple and our dogs, I fell in love even more, as did they!
Haley and Sev are New Yorkers and that is where they met and fell in love. But that’s not where their families are and family is very important to them. They wanted to include as much of their family and family heritage as possible.
“We wanted our wedding to speak to our families and where we came from. [Sev] is from France/Belgium and I am from the Bay Area. When we first walked the grounds at Sunstone Villa & Winery, we knew we had found our happy place – a perfect blend of CA wine-country with European charm (complete with a Villa built from authentic French materials!)” – Haley
Throughout the whole wedding planning process, there are some things you just know. From the moment you fall in love to the proposal, all the way to selecting the wedding dress and the venue, there’s a tug at your heart, or maybe you feel it deep in your gut, whatever it is … you hear it, feel it, say “This is it.” You can’t put it into words, but you know.
“Our vision was for a day of ‘California Cool’ meets with ‘European Elegance’ –  something warm, inviting & sophisticated, without fuss and formality. Because we had so many family and friends traveling from around the world, we wanted our day to be memorable not only to us, but to these important people who had gone above and beyond to share in our day.” – Sev
I am all about the sophistication without the fuss and formality. It is a party to celebrate your love for one another. And that is just what we want you to experience, the beautiful wedding you have envisioned celebrating with your closest family and friends.
I think some of my favorite weddings are ones that are more than just a day! They’re a weekend or even week of celebrations. Why stop at one day? Especially when everything goes by so quickly. Take the time to enjoy all the people you love and adore and make sure to you enjoy and soak in every amazing moment. One day you’ll look back and remember all those special moments and they’ll bring tears to your eyes and a smile to your lips. You’ll remember what you were feeling right before you walked down the aisle. What your maid of honor said that made everyone laugh. How handsome your love looked on this day or how you can see in his eyes how beautiful he thought you looked as he saw you for the first time.
And since I am a sucker for happy endings, here is Haley and Sev’s, straight from them:
“It was an unforgettable day and night. Not only made beautiful by the details in the venue, food and florals, but also by our amazing friends and family who traveled from far and wide to celebrate our marriage. We haven’t stopped smiling.”
That’s what dreams are made of!
Sunstone Vineyards & Winery Wedding Sunstone Vineyards & Winery Wedding Sunstone Vineyards & Winery Wedding Sunstone Vineyards & Winery Wedding Sunstone Vineyards & Winery Wedding Sunstone Vineyards & Winery Wedding Sunstone Vineyards & Winery Wedding Sunstone Vineyards & Winery Wedding Sunstone Vineyards & Winery Wedding
I love the champagne neutral colors of Haley’s bridesmaids dresses. A perfect example of that sophisticated, no fuss vibe the couple was striving for! Well, I think she nailed it. Especially with the classic white florals. Beautiful, classic, elegant! That’s what I am talking about!

OMG! Didn’t I tell you the lighting was amazing here? There was a wild fire nearby that weekend and all the haze made for some beautiful skies! Luckily, no one was injured because it sure did make some stunning images. Now don’t go starting fires! Trust me, the coastal sunsets are still beautiful!

For Haley and Sev, it was all about spending time with their guests, and that they did. I love when couples work that into the timeline! A little pre cocktail, post cocktail and a grand party!

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
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?
Fig House

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.

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.

brunch {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

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!

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!

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.

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?
