this is what
I look like.

I'M KATCH

I live a simple life in the desert with my guy. I’m a rock climber, I genuinely laugh at dad jokes, and I feel pretty weird talking about myself.

I've been shooting weddings for 9 years and have found that I enjoy being truly intentional about how I shoot. It's not about a polished, perfect product. It's about the experience, and the way a photo can bring you back, like the scent of nostalgia.

To be honest, I find it hard to put this into words. I hope the photos say it all.

Pssst!
IF I WASN'T A PHOTOGRAPHER
I'd be a rock-climbing, dirt-bagging nomad. So basically what I am now when I'm not shooting.
I'M AN ANIMAL PERSON
We're all animals. But I often prefer the company of non-human animals best. Sometimes I watch ants for longer than a normal person might.
I'VE LIVED IN A VAN
for 3 years with my Ben. We just bought a home in Joshua Tree, and now we're on the road part-time. I love our weird little life.
I'D RATHER OBSERVE
than be the center of attention. I lean towards the introverted end of the spectrum. But with close friends, I'm the giggle gal.
I HAVE A PSYCHOLOGY DEGREE
from the University of Pennsylvania. Also: Math, Photography, and Statistics. My passions are all over the place.
I DON'T LIKE TO WEAR SHOES
whenever possible & appropriate. So if you're cool with it, I may be barefoot for part of your wedding.
I WAS BORN IN COLOMBIA
I grew up on my grandparent's tiny coffee farm, and moved to the states when I was 9. English is my second language.
I LIKE READING NON-FICTION
Some favorites: Waking Up by Sam Harris,
How To Change Your Mind by Michael Pollan,
The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins.
I THINK THAT GRATITUDE
honesty, & kindness are important. There is so much to be grateful for, even when all feels broken. Let's try to be open & honest, and kind to each other. We're all humans trying to figure shit out.
momma always said,
"you can tell a lot about a person by her friends"
So here are some photos of my weird-ass friends, my guy, and me, doing what we like to do in our spare time.
