You may already be familiar with photographer Katch Silva (we’ve shared quite a few weddings + anniversary shoots photographed by her). But for those of you that haven’t heard, let us formally introduce you! Katch Silva is a wedding + lifestyle photographer; she lives out of her built-out Sprinter Van with her man — which allows them to travel all over for shoots (so cool!). Her goal? To simplify life and bring it back to the basics. For her, it’s all about the outdoors (she loves that her clothes almost always smell like campfire), being in nature and working with couples who feel the same way.
Katch loves photographing couples on their happy day in her happy place — the outdoors. She says I want to include the beauty and messiness of nature into their story and take advantage of it as much as possible. Let’s embrace the paths less traveled, the wind blowing in your hair, and all the other spontaneous and “imperfect” moments… The outtakes, the unscripted emotion, and the quiet moments in between are what I live to capture. Her work is moody, soulful and we’re big, big fans. Oh and another really cool thing? Katch never charges a travel fee for any weddings in Washington, Oregon or NorCal (since that’s where she spends a majority of her time).
She’s got a pretty packed schedule all across the U.S. this year — so read on for when she’ll be near you… Or contact her directly to book your own session!
She captures elopements and everything in between!
Katch says This is what my work is about — the little moments that define a couple way more than the set up portraits. And that’s what I want to capture in my couples. Instead of getting caught up in only the epic portraits and the expected moments, I want to dig a little deeper to make images that reflect who two people are together, their dynamic and their quirks.
And it’s not just about the wedding.. Your love should be celebrated every day after the big day, too! This photo was featured on GWS, from this Life on the Road Anniversary Session.
How cool is her van? When she says she loves the outdoors and being in nature, she truly means it.
Below, you’ll find her 2017 Travel Schedule and all planned dates + locations! Interesting in booking + location details? Feel free to reach out to Katch directly!
Storytelling and documenting a mood is clearly what she loves! Are you a couple that loves the mountains, rocks, wind, rain, and anything in nature? That wants what makes you two, well YOU, to shine through in photos and have moments documented that capture your quirks + relationship? Well then Katch Silva is your girl!
