    Kaity’s one of a kind! With incredible talent!!

    I cannot say enough good things about Kaity, she always made us feel comfortable and she is incredibly talented!! She really goes above and beyond for her clients - and above and beyond doesnt really even hit how much attention and care she put into our photos and our wedding.

    During our engagement session she used poses friendly for plus size women and did the same in our wedding.

    Her photos aren’t overexposed and she primarily sends pictures in color with a few black and white options which I appreciate that she doesn’t overuse black and white pictures. Love the moody feel to her pictures and she was great to work around a family with many conflicting relationships (messy divorce, etc.) issues on the wedding day!

    Couldn’t recommend anyone better! Thanks Kaity!

    Buckland Imagery's reply:

    Oh my goodness, Alicia! Thank you SO much for such a kind review, I literally had tears running down my face as I read it!
    It was such an honour to be apart of yours & Colby's special day, you are both the sweetest people ever and I'm so grateful to have met you both!

    A Very Stressful Experience

    My fiancé and I first booked in with Kaity about a year ago. We loved her photos and style, and when we met in person, we got along so well! Our engagement photos were taken in October, and up until that point we truly believed we had found the perfect photographer.

    By Christmas we had still not received our photos. We were a bit concerned, but since it’s a busy time of year for everyone, we didn’t worry too much. By January, however, we were getting worried. We reached out to Kaity several times but never received a response. As a result, we finally emailed her to terminate our contract.

    After this point, it was like a switch flipped. Kaity started claiming that she had sent emails that she had never sent, would ignore our emails for weeks at a time, and made claims that made no sense whatsoever. We eventually reached an agreement and signed a cancellation contract. Unfortunately, the end date came and went, and not only had we received our money back, but Kaity had not responded to any messages in over two weeks. It was only after we posted a negative review about our experience that she returned our money.

    There is no doubt that Kaity takes beautiful photos, but in my opinion, this level of unprofessionalism is just unacceptable. This has been the most stressful situation that we have dealt with in our wedding planning, and we would not wish this stress on any other couple.

    Great talent, horrible business

    Save yourself the stress and go with someone else. Kaity is a super talented photographer and the few photos I have received from my wedding are absolutely stunning. HOWEVER, her communication and professionalism are out of this world horrible.

    We were married in October and were told to expect our photos in December. We tried to hold back some money from our contract because she had been my sister's photographer for her wedding and had been late on her final gallery, but Kaity assured us that there would not be the same issue so we gave her payment in full ahead of the wedding.

    She told us in December that she was having some technical issues and it would be a bit longer which I had no problem with. In January I got one update that said she was still working on it and after that I heard nothing. I totally understand delays in timelines and while it's not ideal, it's ok as long as there is communication.

    We had to hunt her down and only got a response in April. After that it seemed like she was going to turn it around, while she made some excuses, she also apologized, gave us more photos (up to right before I walk down the aisle), promised the rest would be at the latest on April 11, and offered a free photo book for the stress. I was super relieved and was so happy with the photos that had been added to the gallery so far.

    Now she has ghosted us again and I haven't seen any more added to the gallery since when she first got back to us at the beginning of April. It's incredibly stressful. I have to hope the work will eventually get done, but I have no idea when. I was so excited to relive the day, to get photos printed out, and to give photobooks as presents to our parents.

    I honestly like Kaity as a person and love her work. I'm a nice person who usually never says a bad word about anyone but I had to warn other brides about this so nobody else has to deal with this.

    Great overall experience

    Katie was so flexible to work with, my Fiance broke his ankle so we ended up having to re-schedule our engagement shoot multiple times. She over delivered on our photos, they turned out beautifully! Her time management was great, and we were able to get many amazing photos capturing our day! She was professional & punctual, we would for sure recommend her services!!

    Still waiting since September 2021

    I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND BUCKLAND IMAGERY!



    I chose Kaitlyn to be the photographer for our wedding in September of 2021. I saw her photos online, and they looked amazing, so I was excited to have her as the photographer for our special day. Three months later, we became a little concerned that we had not received our photos and reached out to Kaitlyn. But she never got back to me. My husband messaged Kaitlyn on Instagram asking for our photos and she messaged back and said that she emailed the pictures to me. I felt like I may have missed the pictures in the look-book that she provided. So I logged in again to only see our complimentary engagement pictures and no wedding pictures.

    I believed Katilyn was screening my calls, and it turned out to be accurate assumption. When I called her from work, she answered. I was pretty shocked and upset with this but relieved that she answered. Although Kaitlyn sounded hesitant on the phone with me and said she wasn't feeling good, I felt bad and gave her more time to get the pictures to us (this was the end of January). Now that I have read other brides' reviews, I don't know what to believe. I'm frustrated that there was no communication about what is happening and that I am not the only person she is doing this to, and that we are still waiting for our pictures. We have paid almost $1700 for our wedding pictures, and we have received 20 pictures. Because of all of this, I would highly recommend finding another wedding photographer. It is not worth the hassle and risk of having little to no pictures to remember your special day by.

    Save yourself the stress!

    I had hired Kaitlyn as my photographer for my upcoming wedding in July after my friends had recommended her. The communication at the beginning was good. In February,  after talking with my friends whose wedding she photographed in August had not received their pictures, rarely heard from her, calls were getting screened and when she did get back to them it was excuse after excuse it really worried me. After doing some digging I found out that they were not the only couple she has done this with. So I asked her for a refund and said I was going to go a different direction. Needless to say I have not received a refund as she told me to refer to the cancelation part of the contract. I find it very frustrating that she can breech her own contract by not having people's pictures back to them on time, but sticks to it when she has my $1200 deposit. I was told I could get it back if she books another wedding that day, but like I said to her "how am I supposed to know if you've booked another wedding? And now you have two people's money". After telling her my concerns she of course did not reply. Her pictures are beautiful, but like others have said it's not worth the stress and fight to get them back! Luckily for myself I was able to find another photographer before my wedding and can be stress free knowing I will get my pictures back in a timely matter!

    Amazing photographer!

    My wife and I eloped this week in Lake Louise all the way from California. Words cannot describe how amazing Kaity is! Our photos turned out even better than expected. She was a joy to work with! She really does her homework before hand and found some really great spots at the location we wanted even though she had only been there once before. She went with the flow and was adaptable when things didn't go according to the timeline. She even brought her own ring box (we forgot ours) and ribbon that matched our colors, which I was able to use for my bouquet. She is so sweet, full of energy, and overall the perfect hype woman you want to have on your wedding day. I am the worst at posing and she knew exactly what to do and say to get us in the perfect poses that still looked natural. I seriously could keep going. Overall, we are so happy we chose her for our big day!

    AWFUL, Save your money go find someone else

    We had multiple guests and people in our wedding arty tell us how unprofessional she was. She didn't seem to know any good spots for pictures. But most importantly, we still have not seen ANY wedding photos yet (We were married beginning of September, our date in our contract was December 4, 2021, it's now the end of March and still nothing) She doesn't respond to emails, texts, voicemails or phone calls.

    Perfectly captured the mood of our day

    Kaity did an amazing job capturing our day. We had a small, relaxed wedding and she knew just how to show that through her pictures. Her candid photos were amazing and the posed pictures didn’t look posed. They looked natural.

Hello! I'm Kaitlyn but I often go by Kaity. Here are some fun facts so you can get to know me better!

I grew up on a cattle ranch just outside of a tiny town called Elnora, AB. I spent most my days riding horses, painting, hiking, and of course, doing photography! I have been practicing photography for over 10 years, with the last 3 years being dedicated to portraits, couples, and weddings.

I was a Volunteer Firefighter for 4.5 years for the Elnora Fire Dept. During that time, I learned so many valuable lessons about life, but also that I have an immense passion for serving and helping people.

To me, being a Wedding Photographer is about capturing & creating memories. It’s about freezing a moment in someone’s life for them, or a loved one, to look back on and remember them exactly how they were. It’s being able to reminisce on old memories with your loved ones about your wedding day, a big adventure, or even just an experience that you had. Life happens so quickly, & it is so important to have those memories to look back on.
