Above all else, Willa Kveta is a storyteller. She takes a photojournalist’s approach to documenting moments as they happen, capturing genuine human connection. She is passionate about getting to know her couples on a deeper level: “I want to learn your story and get to know the two of you, so that the images we make together are authentic and have real depth to them. That means opening up and allowing yourselves to be vulnerable. Let’s get real together and make some magic! Sessions with me are fun, creative, outside of the box, and photojournalistic in nature.”
Willa’s talent is in getting couples comfortable in front of the camera. Once the inhibition has dissolved, Willa’s creativity takes over. She has an impeccable sense of timing and uses light to its greatest potential. Her images have depth, beauty, emotion, intentional composition, and vibrant color.
Willa is also fluent in Spanish.

“As far as I am concerned, she was PERFECT and I loved everything she did for us that day, as well as our engagement photos. I still get compliments a year later from people that have seen my photos saying that they are the best wedding pics they have ever seen. I wish I could have Willa around to capture all of life’s major events!!”
“She was almost like a shadow capturing all these amazing moments for us but we never ‘felt’ like we were being photographed. Amazing. She is so gifted, her eye for lighting, atmosphere, all of it. We loved every photo.”
“She captured so many incredible moments and half the time I didn’t even know she was there. And her assistant was AMAZING. I loved working with both of them. They made everyone feel comfortable and happy. The photos were everything I wanted and more.”
“She has a way of commanding the scene and making sure what needs to get done gets done without being bossy or obtrusive. She lets people be natural and captures real moments, but was able to keep us on a timeline so we didn’t run late for the ceremony (we did ‘first look’ photos), which I thought was an amazing talent!”
“Willa took thousands of photos that day, and ALL of them were awesome!”
“Willa was EXTREMELY accommodating throughout the entire planning process. We gave her our budget and she created a personalized plan for us that we were thrilled with.”
“She found a great balance between posed photos and those special moments where we thought no one was looking. She was my favorite thing about our wedding!”
“We love Willa and we will cherish our photos forever!”
