Amanda and Adam // Malibu Adventure Session

June 23, 2015 | No Comments

I think there has been a common thread in all my recent posts: nature has had its way of working perfectly with us to create incredible things. This shoot is no different. Amanda and Adam eloped a year ago and never had a chance to have their photo taken. So they got in touch with me to schedule an epic anniversary session, all they knew was they wanted a beautiful location. And I think we did pretty good with that one. The Malibu coast didn’t disappoint, and that incredible California light blew us away.

Ryan and Jess // Intimate Backyard Wedding

June 16, 2015 | 1 Comment

What happens if an unexpected DOWNPOUR happens in the middle of portraits at your wedding? You run through the rain and love every minute of it! That’s what Ryan and Jess did when we got surprised with insane downpour while we were nowhere near cover, in the middle of the woods taking photos. Both Ryan and Jess absolutely beamed with love and joy all day long, and they didn’t let a little rain (well, a LOT of rain) ruin anything. We ran through the rain and we were all SOAKED by the time we got back to the house. But the party continued, the sun came out a few minutes later, and it was an incredible memory. Thank you, Ryan and Jess, for being awesome and embracing it!

Mike and Chara // Utah Adventure Engagement Session

June 11, 2015 | No Comments

The best way to propose? Take a 6-day road trip through 5 national parks and pop the question at the most epic location you find. That’s exactly how my friends Mike and Chara got engaged, and I couldn’t be happier for them! I met up with them towards the end of their road trip in Utah, in Zion National Park, and had a little adventure together.

Kristen and Michael // Olympic National Park Adventure Session

June 4, 2015 | 5 Comments

I have always wanted to do a shoot in a mossy green forest covered in fog. Its hard to predict the weather, but this time nature was really on my side. All the elements worked out perfectly. I met Kristen and Michael for brunch before starting the shoot, when the sun was high and it didn’t look like we would see any fog at all. A few minutes into our hike up to Mount Ellinor, the fog took over and we were in a thick cloud for the rest of the hike. We didn’t get any epic peak views of Olympic National Park, but the fog totally made up for it. It was really fun to work with and photograph the talented Kristen Marie !

Sara and Max // Delaware Water Gap

May 19, 2015 | 2 Comments

Everything in Sara and Max’s wedding had so much sentiment, meaning, and love behind it. She got dressed in her parents house and walked over to the ceremony, which was held in an old building where she used to play as a little girl when it was abandoned. For our sunset portrait session we snuck away from the party and took a hike down a short little quiet trail to a lake where they used to play as children. It’s hard to pick one favorite thing about this wedding, but I’d have to say my favorite element was just how excited they both were to go on a hike and have some time alone in the woods. Definitely my kind of people!

It’s time for part two of Cory and Bethany’s awesome two-day session! I love the vast simplicity of the Algodones Sand Dunes in California. It was the perfect setting for this fun session. In case you missed part one, it was an adventure Joshua Tree session and you can find it HERE!

Madison and Joe // Colorado Adventure Session

April 6, 2015 | 2 Comments

I have always wanted to do a session in the Garden of the Gods in Colorado, in the winter, during a snowstorm. And I finally did! When we scouted it was bright and sunny, but as soon as we started shooting the snow started falling hard and it was incredible. So glad that Joe and Madison were up for braving the storm! Colorado Adventure SessionColorado wedding photographerColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographerColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado Adventure SessionColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado Adventure Session by Katch SilvaColorado Adventure Session by Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado Adventure Session by Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographerColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado Adventure Session by Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado Adventure Session by Katch SilvaColorado wedding photographer Katch SilvaColorado Adventure Session by Katch SilvaColorado adventure session by Colorado wedding photographer Katch Silva


Hannah and David // Adventure Photo Session

April 4, 2015 | No Comments

Some sessions are too good to forget. I have been going through older work and updating my portfolio, and I decided to re-edit this session because its still one of my favorites ever. Hannah and David are lovers of the outdoors, so I wanted to find an awesome spot for their shoot. I had heard about this particular location from fellow climbers, and it turned out to be really epic. We met before sunrise and shot on these cliffs through the foggy morning. So good.

Maggie and Joel // Colorado Adventure Photographer

March 25, 2015 | No Comments

Working with creatives is one of my favorite things to do. Especially when they love each other and have a passion for the outdoors and for photography as well.  I had the pleasure of working alongside my friend Ben Sasso to photograph Joel and Maggie Bear to create beautiful images of their love for each other and for adventure. After just a few minutes of meeting we became instant friends and everything just flowed. We wanted to make sure this was a true Colorado adventure session, and Colorado National Monument was a perfect location. We drove around all afternoon, finding spots to stop at, walk around and photograph. We camped together that night and shared stories and ideas over hot tea under the stars. If it were up to me, all my sessions would end this way. I can’t wait for more adventure sessions like this one.

Emma and James // Montana Wedding Photographer

March 17, 2015 | No Comments

I love everything about the state of Montana. The mountains (of course), rivers, lakes, and wildlife. So when I got the opportunity to shoot a beautiful wedding by a lake in Whitefish, Montana, I knew it was gonna be more than amazing. A huge thanks to Carrie Ann for having me along to shoot this with her.
