First, photon itself has energy, thus gravity. So, total gravity always stays the same.

Second, a graviton takes so little energy that uncertainty principle allows it to be undetectd for very LONG time thus it can cover very large distances (propagating with speed of light) being completely unnoticed (or before it disappears back into vacuum). Thus gravity can mutually affect very distant objects as if it is one and the same object.
