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

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!

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!

This is Clarice and Mike. Aren’t they just adorable? My favorite thing about this engagement session was how excited Clarice was when I told her we were including ice cream in their session!

Clarice {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

Well, we had very different ideas about the ice cream! I thought we’d use it as a prop. Clarice thought it would be a great treat! She was so excited, it was like being around a little kid. I have to admit, going into the store to get the ice cream made me feel a little giddy.

Clarice {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

I get it! I remember getting this special treat as a child. There was a local Thrifty’s at the end of the block by my grandma’s house.  Plus, Clarice loves her ice cream (her favorite flavor is Thrifty’s cherry chocolate chip) and it was her birthday, so of course we had to include it! It worked as both: a prop and a treat!

Clarice {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

We started their session along Belmont Shores. This is just the cutest little place!

Clarice {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

After we hung out there for a little while, we headed on to Seal Beach. These spots are some of Clarice and Mike’s favorite places to hang out. They were perfect for their engagement shoot!

Clarice {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

Look how cute and snuggly they are! I just love capturing moments like this!

We found the ice cream, a few hidden street gems, the docks and the beach. The best thing was ending the day with sunset on the beach! Aren’t these beach shots just stunning?

Clarice {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

These shots in black and white have such a great vintage look. I love the pier in the background!

For years, Aldo and I have had couples photo sessions for our holiday cards – and I am super excited for this years! Yup, we did it while we were in Italy!!! I’m sure many of you are familiar with them since you’ve probably received them in your inbox or regular old mailbox. It’s a special treat, something we do as much for our clients as for ourselves. It’s a way for us to share our love story with you, just as many of you have shared your story with us when you allowed us to capture your romance.

kristaldo_1Don’t be fooled, just because we are photographing couples day in and day out with engagement sessions and weddings and directing and guiding, we still feel awkward on the other side. So your not alone!

000091250002You’ve seen the pictures…Aldo and I snuggling closer than normal, standing in positions we don’t stand in normally, all dressed up walking in the woods or around abandoned buildings – all to make the images look amazing and natural. Sounds complicated, right? Not really, it just takes practice.

This is why we encourage all of our couples to have an engagement session prior to the wedding day. You want to focus on your wedding and make sure that you are at your best. Having an engagement session let’s you kick those nerves and awkward feelings to the side. reasons engagement session {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]I mean, think about all the prep work you’ve been doing for your wedding. You’ve been on the wedding diet for God only knows how long, spent months hunting for the perfect bridesmaids dresses, not to mention your own perfect dress. Why shouldn’t you make sure you’re at your best for your wedding photos, too?

How does one do that you ask? With an engagement session, of course!Engagement sessions are one of my favorite things to photograph. I love capturing the romance…the excitement…the joy of two people who are about to devote their love to each other.

engagement_post_km_1Sure, you’re nervous about having your photos taken, but an engagement session is the perfect time to work them out. It’s a special time for the couple to be alone and get acquainted with the camera and photographer as a couple.So much is happening on your wedding day – so many emotions, people and activities. An engagement session will give you some quiet time as a couple to just be together and be you and learn your favorite looks together, as well as build a deeper relationship with your photographer.

026-los-angeles-engagement-photography-0103_Ivette_Chris_EngSome photographers include the engagement session in packages, while others opt to have it as an add-on. Here at Krista Mason Photography we feel it is a must. While we have packages with and without the engagement session to fit your needs, we highly encourage all of our couples to take advantage of the benefits by including one with your wedding package.

Check out our top reasons why an engagement session is a must have bonus.

1. Helps build a relationship with your photographer

This is key! At this point you have probably built a basic relationship with your photographer, you get along and are becoming fast friends. But, it is time to take the relationship to the next level by actually working with your photographer by having an engagement session. This time together will help you understand your photographer better and help build your confidence in your photographer, making you more comfortable with them being in the middle of your intimate moments.krista-mason-photography-engagment-shoot-reasons-0020When they give you guidance for your wedding photos, you’ll know exactly what they are asking without having to think twice about it. You’ll be comfortable knowing what’s coming next – this is key on your wedding day, because you already have so much to think about you don’t need to add anything else to it.reasons engagement session {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]The engagement session helps your photographer understand you and what you’re comfortable with and how to better communicate with you on your big day. It allows your photographer to determine if you like more snuggles, if your serious or like lots of laughs, or a good mixture of both. Not all couples are good with the serious, and vice versa, so this time together helps your photographer learn your vibes and what works best for you as a couple…just like dating, the engagement session is a trial run!

2. Helps you be comfortable and confident for your wedding photos

Ok, this is key…lol. Who doesn’t want to feel more comfortable and confident in their photos? I know I do! By having an engagement session you will feel more prepared and know what you like and don’t like. This means you can be confident that you and your photographer will get the best photos possible on your wedding day. When you spend this extra time with your photographer, you’re building a relationship that will result in you being more comfortable with him or her. reasons engagement session {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]This will go a long way in making your photos much more amazing and natural! You’ll get those awkward nerves out of the way, well, at least the ones about being photographed. Unless you’re a supermodel, you probably aren’t used to being the center of all that attention and having to smile for such a long period of time. Having an engagement session will help you be a pro in front of the camera for your wedding.

3. Discover your best looks and how to get them

The good stuff…that’s what you want! An engagement session lets your photographer learn your best angles, your best poses that let you relax and have fun. Even better, you lean what angles you like, what side you like, what poses are most comfortable, all the way down to the details of holding hands. This also builds up your confidence, since you’ll know what to do to look radiant on your big day.reasons engagement session {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]Make sure you share with your photographer what your likes and dislikes are. Remember they aren’t mind readers, so be open with them. We want to make sure your photos are your best, so don’t be afraid to tell them if something makes you feel uncomfortable. Don’t forget to tell them what you love, too, so they can focus on that! As an added bonus, you could do a trial hair and make-up session, so you can see how you like it on camera.

4. A chance for amazing unique photos

Your engagement session is your time to shine – a chance to be unique – from your hair and make-up, your outfits, even your location. Go ALL out! Have fun. Choose a fun and sexy outfit, get your hair and make-up done and coordinate with your photographer on a unique location that fits your personality as a couple. Choose your own adventure!!reasons engagement session {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]engagement_post_km_2

We find that couples often use their engagement photos for wall portraits in their home, sometimes instead of their wedding photos, since your wedding photos will often be very different – more formal – than your engagement photos. Your engagement session is a chance for you to be just be you and wear what is most like you. Whether that’s a fancy dress and suit or jeans and a t-shirt or maybe both, why not? Your photos are usually taken in a natural setting and, ideally, an everyday moment – just jazzed up a bit. reasons engagement session {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]So, it will fit in perfectly in your home, because it’s the story of the two of you! Get crazy and have fun, rent a vintage car, throw confetti or holi powder at each other, take a stroll downtown or ride a bike, go retro, bake a cake, play in the snow or rain…your options are limited only by your imagination!reasons engagement session {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

5. Opportunity for unique decor

Besides being a source for great home décor, your engagement photos will make for great additions to your wedding design. Use your engagement photos as a sign-in book or display some of the images at your reception; those same portraits will look beautiful displayed in your home. Use your photos as table numbers or in some unique way as a fun display – maybe a wall mural – escort cards, postage stamps or anything you want! They make great holiday cards too! You don’t have to limit using them just at your wedding, use them for your bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, part of your invitations or on your website.reasons engagement session {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]041-los-angeles-engagement-photography-0305_Molique_RyanWe’ve given you some great reasons for scheduling an engagement session, so what are you waiting for?

OK, you are going to love this San Diego engagement shoot. As you all know I have a special bond with puppies – OK, you’re right…it’s a borderline obsession! Anyway, I just love it when couples include their fur babies in their engagement session. Just like Aldo and I, Shannon and Trevor have a special bond with their little fur baby, Kayia.newport bay engagement {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]Isn’t she just the cutest? She posed so perfectly and was so classy. I mean look at her and that adorable little sign! You can see she is super excited for her humans…who are amazing, by the way! newport bay engagement {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]I love shooting engagement sessions, and while I have my favorite locations, I always enjoy finding new locations. Shannon and Trevor live in downtown San Diego and we thought it would be a perfect fit for them to walk around their favorite areas and capture them in action. Look how adorable they are in this beautiful unique area they call home!newport bay engagement {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]It was a beautiful day…chilly but sunny and super windy, but no rain, so it was perfect for their engagement shoot. Shannon embraced the wind, even gave us her best Marilyn Monroe impression, but I love the movement that it created with her hair and skirt. I love that she wasn’t worried about it!newport bay engagement {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]As we walked around the neighborhood looking for some cool and unique spots, we got to know them and their loving personalities. We could see how much they love that little fur baby and, of course, each other. Their sweet snuggles turning into giggles and even turned playful…how about that dance in the middle of the road? Perfection! newport bay engagement {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]We started on this lovely tree lined street and then headed to a park (with more amazing tree lined walkways) – all the time trying to avoid the crazy people.

Engagement sessions are so fun! It is the perfect time for the couple to hang out with each other while having someone with a camera constantly capturing their every movement and detail. The perfect preparation for the wedding day!engagement shoot {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]engagement shoot {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

Karen and Eric were awesome. First of all it was like a 100 degrees in October in Palos Verdes. Totally unheard of! It is usually nice and cool along the coast and even a little chilly in October, but the weather had other plans for the day. And this couple rocked it! engagement shoot {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]engagement shoot {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

Especially Eric, who isn’t a huge fan of being photographed and dislikes the heat even more. I had the deck stacked against me, but they were troopers and Eric might even have enjoyed his session after all – one of the benefits of hiring the right photographer who’s a professional through and through. We can make it fun, enjoyable and, no matter the conditions, make you shine (not the sweaty kind but the beauty kind).engagement shoot {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]engagement shoot {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title] engagement shoot {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

Despite the heat, Karen and Eric were fantastic. I got all the snuggles, giggles, and love out of them and they were pros by the end of the session. I love that they included their pups, you know me I am totally obsessed with puppies and love including them in weddings and engagements. They are our fur babies after all. engagement shoot {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

These poor guys couldn’t handle the heat and Auntie had to take them back to the air conditioned car. Luckily they recovered and it cooled off a tad as the sun was setting and we got their perfect family christmas card, lol. engagement shoot {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

I love the casual look Karen and Eric rocked. The plaid shirt and sexy jeans paired with some bling is always a great combo.engagement shoot {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]engagement shoot {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]engagement shoot {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]engagement shoot {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]Eric’s plain t and jeans matched with a jacket gave his outfit more dimension. Taking an everyday outfit like jeans and a t-shirt and adding a big statement piece like jewelry, shoes, jackets, etc always take the photos to the next level. And Karen and Eric pulled this off like a pro. engagement shoot {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]engagement shoot {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

Caroline originally contacted me to do her boudoir photography, but when she mentioned she wanted to include her boyfriend Phil, the shoot turned into a beautiful and fun love shoot at the beach! 

001_los_angeles_engagement_beach 002_los_angeles_engagement_beach 003_los_angeles_engagement_beach 004_los_angeles_engagement_beachI think most guys can relate to NOT wanting to be photographed!

But he totally stole the show and we had a blast! 005_los_angeles_engagement_beach 006_los_angeles_engagement_beach 007_los_angeles_engagement_beachI love connecting with couples and watching them actually enjoy their photo session as Caroline and Phil certainly did! 008_los_angeles_engagement_beach 009_los_angeles_engagement_beach 010_los_angeles_engagement_beach 011_los_angeles_engagement_beachLots of laughs, giggles, snuggles and even a few beers!

Wow! Another #kmplovestory for you! Ivette was in nursing school and was working her butt off to try and finish in one year! And to her own amazement and exhaustion…she did! 

026-los-angeles-engagement-photography-0103_Ivette_Chris_Eng

Chris wanted to treat her to a well deserved vacation after all her hard work. Her long hours meant they hadn’t been able to spend much time together. So this was a win-win situation!

Chris told Ivette he wanted to surprise her with a vacation and he would take care of all the planning.

los-angeles-wedding-photographer-00

The only information that Chris shared with Ivette was the date and that it would be some where tropical – and that she needed a passport!

029-los-angeles-engagement-photography-0105_Ivette_Chris_Eng

Chris surprised her with a trip to Playa Mujeres in Cancun. It was just what she needed to relax and relish in her accomplishments! Margaritas, waves and sunshine were just what the doctor ordered.

034-los-angeles-engagement-photography-0311_Ivette_Chris_Eng

On their last night there, they decided to have some photos taken by the resort photographer, capturing their memorable vacation.

Ivette had no idea Chris was planning to propose, but Chris made sure to let the photographer in on the secret.

007-wedding-destination-1548_Ivette_Chris_000018270014

So there they were, Ivette thinking they are just taking some casual pictures to document their vacation and to her surprise,Chris went down on one knee with a ring! Every moment was captured by the resort photographer.

Needless to say it was a magical moment and a total surprise to Ivette. They also have some amazing pictures to cherish the moment!

Well done Chris!

Here’s another #kmplovestory! This love story is too cute to not share! I mean really who meets in public places these days? It’s all about the tender, the match.com, the Bumbo…yup, that’s the latest dating app. Don’t you just miss the stories of people bumping into each other and spilling something, one starts to get angry until they lock eyes and the rest is history?

001_los_angeles_wedding_paul_david

This couple didn’t spill coffee or anything, but they did meet in real 3D life! Yup! And, get this, they met on a subway in LA! No they aren’t crazy or bums, just the most adorable couple ever!

It started with just exchanging glances and a little flirting on the subway platform. They didn’t speak to each other, well not at first!

002_los_angeles_wedding_paul_david

003_los_angeles_wedding_paul_david

Fate was at work. They ended up on the same train. Anyone who takes the subway in LA knows that space is limited and these two love birds in the making ended up standing next to each other and started some small talk about work and school.

004_los_angeles_wedding_paul_david

It gets better. They both got off the train at the same stop and realized they lived near each other. So, they exchanged phone numbers. About two months later they went on a first date. And well the rest is history!

005_los_angeles_wedding_paul_david

Wanna know how Paul proposed….ok here it is! It was their first New Year’s Eve living together, and they decided to take a road trip to San Francisco (via Las Vegas). Paul had it all planned out.

006_los_angeles_wedding_paul_david

He was going to propose on NYE, during the day while they toured San Francisco. His plan: rent a tandem bike and ride over the Golden Gate Bridge, then come back and have a picnic at Stow Lake, propose on a paddle boat then enjoy the NYE fireworks countdown.

He bought David a ring from his favorite jeweler, Tiffany & Co – slightly used from an estate sale, score!

010_los_angeles_wedding_paul_david

He wanted the surprise proposal to be private and intimate. Just the two of them! No friends or family peeking from the bushes. But, from the very beginning of what was supposed to be THE most romantic day, tragedy struck.

009_los_angeles_wedding_paul_david

They had an accident on the bike with the SF trolley tracks, which resulted in an hour arguing over the damage cost with the bike company (not to mention each other, I mean they are a real couple after all, lol). Then, they couldn’t get any last minute same day tour options and were completely frustrated. They couldn’t even board a bus, the City was so crowded. After it felt like everything was going wrong, they finally grabbed some food and champagne and took a cab to Golden Gate Park.

008_los_angeles_wedding_paul_david

Hold on…it gets worse. The cab, of course, dropped them off in the wrong spot of the park, and it took another 20 min to walk to the lake where Paul wanted to picnic.

Paul’s plan being demolished – the day was chaos. David was still so supportive and made the most of the experience, trying to keep Paul happy.

Paul was visibly upset and almost gave up on proposing that day because it felt marred with everything that had gone wrong, until he saw how David reacted. David was his rock and reminded him all over again why he fell in love with him.

007_los_angeles_wedding_paul_david

SO – they popped open the bottle of champagne, and Paul pulled out the ring and proposed to David with only the ducks in the lake as their witnesses. And that was it. David said yes! They started off the New Year (2013) engaged!

Now that’s what I call turning lemons into lemonade…or really good champagne. Does it get any sweeter than that!!!

As I promised, here’s Mirna and Brian’s #kmplovestory!

On a beautiful Sunday afternoon, Brian and Mirna were getting ready for a day at Disneyland. It was just a typical day, since they have season passes and go all the time.

{#kmplovestory | Wedding Photography from Krista Mason Photography}

They had discussed getting engaged and knew they wanted to spend their lives together. In spite of all their recent conversations, Mirna didn’t suspect a thing!

Brian totally threw her off when just the day prior he asked what type of metal she preferred, white gold or platinum?This deception disappointed Mirna because that meant the ring wasn’t ready yet and the proposal wasn’t going to happen any time soon.

Little did she know that Brian had been hiding the ring for weeks!

{#kmplovestory | Wedding Photography from Krista Mason Photography}

Jennifer and Jeff (Mirna and Brian’s matchmakers and best friends) were tagging along as well to Disneyland…but they go together often, so again, this wasn’t out of the ordinary.

Jennifer wanted to stop by Snow White’s Wishing Well to make a wish right when they got there. Mirna was totally up for it and already knew what she would be wishing for. (I bet you can guess what she was wishing for.)

{#kmplovestory | Wedding Photography from Krista Mason Photography}

Jeff and Brian made wishes first. Then it was the ladies turn. Mirna had her penny in hand, closed her eyes, threw the penny over her shoulder. When she opened her eyes the most wonderful wish came true…Brian was on his knee, proposing!

{#kmplovestory | Wedding Photography from Krista Mason Photography}

Mirna said yes, of course, and the rest is history! They have been happily married since June of 2013. They now have a beautiful little boy in the picture and the second one on the way! I was fortunate enough to be able to capture their family photos recently!
