"Katch was able to create and capture genuine emotional responses without ever seeming intrusive or unnatural.
...She appears and disappears as best serves the moment. We sprung for a day after session (second best decision we made for our elopement), and Katch orchestrated it all masterfully. Our photos, which Katch delivered promptly, so far exceeded our expectations that I think our only regret was that we didn't have more time with this amazing artist."
"We LOVED having Katch as our engagement/wedding photographer. Not only did she deliver us the most stunning, unique photos of our wedding day, but she made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. She truly felt like a part of our family!
She’s silly and goofy, but professional and gave great direction when needed. She did an amazing job making us both feel super comfortable in front of the camera.
Some of my very favorite memories from both our engagement shoot and our wedding day were the moments Katch prompted us to pause and just take it all in - and then captured our reactions from afar. They still bring tears to my eyes whenever I see the photos. We are already talking about hiring her for future anniversaries! Thank you, Katch, for capturing our wedding so beautifully. We are so grateful!"
"We couldn't have known how important your presence would be on our wedding day, but I feel increasingly fortunate to have met you when we did. The protected time you built in for us that day was incredibly special and I am so grateful for it.
It felt like sweet alone time with Josh that you just happened to be there to capture, which I fully credit you for!
You built trust and comfort between us during our time together in Yosemite you have a wonderfully calming presence and effect on others, even on self-described calm people like me. ;)"
“Working with Katch for our engagement photos in Olympic National Park and our wedding in Seattle was a truly amazing experience and one of the best decisions we made throughout the planning process. Not only did she provide us with images that will forever remain SO special to us, but her way of setting those around her at ease and creating fun energy wherever she goes led to moments that felt authentic to our personalities and relationship. Katch helped us to feel like the best version of ourselves, and she captured every emotion and detail absolutely perfectly. We may have to continue to book her for annual anniversary shoots going forward”
“My husband and I only have the best things to say about Katch Silva – Beyond her superhuman photography skills, she’s sweet, genuine, kind, honest, organized and simply just a pleasure to be around. She made the entire process easy, made us feel comfortable, and always followed through on everything. Not to mention she’s super responsive which is always a plus. Our engagement and wedding photos are unique, timeless, emotive, and we’re obsessed with each one… they’re that good! Katch was by far one of the BEST decisions we made when it came to our wedding vendors.”
“Most of our time during the bride & groom photos was spent talking and laughing, and we often forgot that there was a camera. She was so unobtrusive throughout the whole night and had such a sweet personality. I loved that she had scoped out the whole property, finding the best spots and lighting for our photos. We hiked into the woods, through the flower fields and around the pumpkin patches – the photos are so beautiful and we are so grateful to Katch”

“Katch is a tip top professional, but also very fun and adventurous. She photographed my husband and me on a cold, rainy day on the beach in January, and managed to use the balmy weather as a wonderful setting for our photos. I love the way they look. Katch will truly capture your character, and your photos will be beautiful and uniquely you.”
“There’s not a single moment we regretted hiring Katch to take our vow renewal photos in Iceland. The photos are more than we could’ve ever asked for, and she was so flexible with us to make it work. (Iceland lighting, weather, and drive times are not typical!) We had a blast with her, she was quick and responsive throughout the booking process, and we got our photos promptly and without issue. 100% recommended.”
“Our experience with Katch was perfection. When we look at the photos it reminds us of how wonderful the day was. Neither of us had used a professional photographer before but Katch made us feel immediately at ease giving us just the right amount of guidance so she could work her magic. Our entire family had nothing but glowing reviews about their interactions with her throughout the day. She blended right in, we really couldn’t have made a better choice with Katch”
