INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Negatives, Prints, Proof CD of All Images, Thank You Cards, Video Montage
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Each Wedding Package includes up to ten custom toned and/or retouched images of your choosing (if you so desire them).
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
I use light as the basis of all of my work...every image begins with light. I choose locations based on the light ~ which is the most important element to creating a beautiful photograph. Since there are many circumstances during weddings where I cannot chose the light - it is what it is, I have learned the art of working with the light that exists...in all different lighting conditions.
Is your media preference film or digital?
I prefer digital over film because I feel that I have the most creative control when I am editing my images. Shooting digital format allows me to choose whether I want the image to be vibrantly color toned, black and white, grainy or sharp, soft or muted toned, etc.
How many photographers do you work with?
All of my wedding packages include two Photographers, myself and my assistant. I also have six Associate Photographers that I work with on a regular basis as part of my Associate Wedding Packages.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
I shoot Nikon. I shoot with the Nikon D800 and have two Nikon D700 backup cameras. I own all professional lenses: the 70-200mm F2.8, 50mm F1.4, 24-70mm F2.8, 85mm F1.8, and a Macro lens for closeup detail shots like rings. For the majority of my images, I use a very shallow depth of field because I like my backgrounds to go soft and all of the focus to be directed at my subject. I want your eye to immediately zero into my subjects.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Absolutely! I ALWAYS have a backup camera and plenty of lenses!
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Yes, we can always stay longer. It is rare, but there are some instances when the timeline is off or the party is so awesome and lively that the bride and groom ask us to stay extra. The costs depends on the contracted rate.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
In a normal wedding day, we take one break during the first part of dinner (after the bride and groom/wedding party have received their food and all necessary food images are taken). Meals are to be provided for each Photographer. We always stay close (yet out of the way) so that we can resume work as soon as toasts or any events start up again.
Do you charge for travel?
There is no inflated 'travel fee'. All travel expenses are strictly at cost. Typically this includes: airfare, hotel and rental car (unless other arrangements are made).
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
You will receive an online link to your slideshow (a selection of some of the best images from your day set to a song of your choice) within 1-2 weeks of your wedding. You will receive a custom USB drive of all of your edited and toned high resolution digital negatives within 6-10 weeks of your wedding day.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes, however you are able to do whatever you wish with your images - make copies, prints, publish them (with photo credit included), use them online, on websites, etc.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes, however I am very respectful of my client's wishes and am willing to modify my contract on a case-by-case basis for clients who are uncomfortable with their images being published.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes. Every package includes all edited and toned high resolution digital negatives on a custom USB flash drive.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes. You will receive a password-protected link to all of your images which you can share with your family and friends if you choose. Your images will stay on line for a minimum of six months at no additional cost to you.
What kind of albums do you offer?
Our albums and coffee table books are all hand made by the most professional and skilled book makers on the market! Their albums are exquisitely hand crafted and made to last a lifetime. We offer various sizes, cover options, leather, hard covers, photo covers, etc.
When will the client get the final album?
If your package includes an album, you will receive your album 6-12 weeks after you've made your image selections for your album. This is because each album is custom designed and hand made by incredibly talented and professional book makers. This turn around also includes shipping.

OMG, I LOVE Willa!!!!!!!!!! I could not imagine having any other photographer with me on my wedding day. I interviewed around 10 different photographers, I'm pretty picky - can you tell? :). From the second Willa got on the phone with me, I could tell she was the perfect fit. Not only was she super nice, laid back, easy to work with and talk to...her photographs are absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!

My now husband and I are not great and taking pictures so we weren't sure how our engagement photos would turn out. Our entire session was so relaxed, fun, silly, happy and it felt more like we were hanging out with our bff Willa than taking our engagement pics. The wedding was no different. She was on time, professional, super sweet and not intrusive at all. She kept our timeline running smoothly so we weren't late for anything. At the ceremony, I didn't even know she was there and my guests said the same thing.

Our favorite quote from Willa was, "One more shot..." because no matter how many spectacular pictures she took, she was always looking for that one more gorgeous moment of light to go above and beyond to snap the perfect picture. Every picture was so well thought out, creative and precise.

My husband and I feel so lucky to have found her and are excited to work with her again on a maternity shoot perhaps or some family photos. Anyone looking for a photographer in the Santa Barbara area would be so lucky to have her!!!!

Willa is absolutely wonderful across the board. She did such an amazing job and our photographs turned out even more fabulous than we could have imagined. Not a detail was missed, even ones we never would have thought of. And on top of that, she was a pleasure to work with as she's just a really nice person. She even sewed a button back onto my husband's tuxedo, a story that everyone gets a real kick out of. And she got a photo of it, too! Her assistants are great, as well, and made everything comfortable and just super fun. Everyone made us feel really special, which is how people should feel on their wedding day. We feel lucky that we were able to book Willa for our wedding and cannot recommend her strongly enough. If we ever have need of a photographer again she will be the one we use, no question about it. She's simply the best.

Willa was an absolute dream to work with! We were doing a lot of research on photographers and came across her website and fell in love with her work. We had a face to face meeting with her and from the moment we met her, we KNEW she was the perfect person to photograph our big day. The pricing was so reasonable for the quality of service we received. She was always so easy to get a hold of and super accommodating on everything that we wanted. On the day of our wedding, she was prompt and got right to work and never missed an important moment. She is an absolute pro- she knows exactly where to be to capture the best shot without making you feel like, well, there is a camera in your face every second. She is efficient and sticks to her timeline without making you feel stressed or rushed. Not to mention she has the kindest heart and makes you feel like an old friend right from the beginning. The amount of love and care she puts into every "job" is very obvious. All of our friends and family have been amazed by the quality and beauty of our photos. I keep hearing people say, "Wow, I'm so glad she captured that because I forgot that happened". It's so true when they say that your wedding day is a blur and we are so thankful to have had Willa there to capture the moments we missed. We would pick Willa to capture our wedding day over and over again. She also did our engagement photos and they were incredible as well.

I met with Willa on a referral, with no idea of what to expect from a wedding photographer. Willa spent an hour with us, explaining the process, her style and what to expect on the day. She spent time getting to know us, our wedding plans and the types of images we wanted to capture. I instantly liked her portfolio, lots of laughter, nothing looked "staged" or awkward. Our big day was perfect! Willa and her assistant (Anna) were unobtrusive during the ceremony and yet got all the group pics done quickly and efficiently. I have received our slideshow and we LOVE what we see...can't wait to see the full set of images! Would recommend you have a convo with Willa - she may be perfect for you too!

We were thrilled with the photos that Willa took on our wedding day. She was recommended by our florist, which we thought was significant because the florist had a very artistic eye and creative flair. Willa was very friendly on the phone and met us at the Santa Barbara Courthouse to show us some of her work and her favourite backdrops there. She also had previous experience at our venue, the Canary, which we thought was important. We had a small mid-week wedding and Willa had several packages and pricing options for us to choose from. She was responsive and flexible thought out. On the day she was on time, calm and somehow made the whole thing relaxed, even for the groom and guys which was impressive! The photos themselves are great. We loved the natural style of her photos, not too stiff and posed as some are. Everyone has commented on how great they are. She had the slide show ready within a couple of weeks of the wedding, and a flash drive in the mail and Youtube clip soon after. I managed to corrupt the flash drive and she had another on the way immediately. We would definitely recommend Willa based upon our experience with her and the results we got.

Willa was amazing to work with. I do not live in California and was not familiar with Santa Barbara, where we were getting married, and Willa almost served as a wedding planner in addition to our photographer. She helped me pick where to eat, what to take our friends and family to do, what to see, etc. She was so flexible about everything from what exactly we needed in our package to when we were going to have photos taken (thanks to a delayed flight). At the actual shoot, she was professional but also very fun. She helped my husband and I to relax and feel comfortable. She was creative but also made sure we were taking pictures that reflected us as a couple. She took our engagement photos, and then two of her associates shot the actual wedding. Her associates were amazing as well. They made sure to capture all of the magical moments of that day. My husband and I, after our wedding, kept saying that we weren't sure how photos were going to capture the beauty of everything on our wedding day, but the photographers managed to do just that. I could not recommend Willa Kveta more highly.

It was a pleasure to work with Willa! From the very beginning she was professional, patient, flexible, and kind. She was quick to respond to communication, both before and after our wedding date. Her photos of our wedding ceremony, reception, family, wedding party, and the bride and groom are all excellent and better than what we had hoped for. Her years of experience and training at one of the best schools of photography cannot be matched. Willa was organized and really helped us to remain calm on the wedding day. We were a little behind schedule (aren't most weddings?), but Willa made sure we still took the photos we wanted. We like her and boast of her photos so much that one of our friends has already booked her for wedding photography as well. You will be so pleased with Willa and her work! She delivers and you won't be disappointed!

From our very first meeting, Willa made everything such a wonderful experience. With her kindness, passion for her work, and attention to detail, she is one of the best. I loved the way she could captured precious moments without giving us too much instruction. The benefits to Willa's behind the scenes approach definitely showed in our pictures, as we felt less on the spot and more natural. Willa couldn't have been any sweeter and more attentive through it all, making that much more of an unforgettable experience. All of our pictures came out incredible thanks to her talented and creative eye. We already recommended her to our friends who hired her and we're married October 2014. Best wishes, Willa!
