Hey there, I'm Katha, a 27-year-old visual storyteller. My husband and I made a bold move from Germany to Hawaii back in 2022, and let me tell you, it's been one heck of a ride! Hawaii's stunning scenery and vibrant vibes have made it the highlight of my life.

I've always had a camera since I can remember, often playing the role of the designated family photographer on every vacation. Hawaii unleashed my creativity, leading me to turn my passion into a profession, and it's been the best thing that ever happened to me! I always say I have the best “job” in the world because it has hardly felt like work.

Capturing moments goes beyond just a profession for me; it's a journey of translating emotions and stories into visual poetry. Each click is a chapter in the tale of people, places, and experiences that have touched my heart.


People often think my name is Valeria because of 'Valerphotos.' It's the name of my dad, always supporting and encouraging me to follow what brings me joy. Photography became one of those passions, and with Valerphotos, I aim to capture moments filled with the same love and warmth he shared with me. Naming my business after him is a special nod to the inspiration he provided.

Beyond photography, I'm a yoga instructor and currently pursuing my Master's in data science – a colorful mix, right? Recently, I welcomed the joy of motherhood, cherishing my son as life's most precious gift. During my free moments, you'll find me by the beach, hiking through nature, tending to my garden, constantly learning, and immersing myself in the beauty of this island paradise. More than anything, I treasure time with my loved ones – friends, family, and especially my son.

My inspiration springs from cinematic films, the beauty of movement, art, captivating books, love stories, and the magic of music. I thrive on capturing moments brimming with emotion and the essence of life.


At its core, any photographer can deliver good photos, but I aim to go beyond. I strive to create an environment where you can be entirely yourself, hearts wide open. Let's break free from the conventional poses and expectations of what photos 'should' be. Together, let's craft something beautiful that genuinely preserves the milestones of your life, whether grand or intimate.

Through my lens, it's not merely about freezing moments; it's about capturing the essence of who you are. Each photograph should narrate a story – your story. It's a journey of authentic connections, emotions, and the raw beauty that defines your moments uniquely.
