Kim is down to earth and very professional. She is stealthy - didn't notice her climbing everywhere to get that perfect photo! She made us feel comfortable and at ease. She's hands on and will assist with anything. Don't know how to put a boutonniere on your brother or bussle your dress? Don't worry, she's got you covered! She knew all the best places to take photos at Emerald Lake and the Natural Bridge. She had recommendations for other vendors that would work with what we wanted (cake, flowers). Very flexible in her packages. We received a few teaser pictures the next day to share with friends, family (or social media) and they are amazing. Can't get over how amazing she is at what she does!Sent on 01/06/2019

Beautiful Engagement Photos!
My fiance worked with Kim to capture our engagement and Emerald Lake Lodge and she was amazing! She was knowledgeable about the location and the best spots to take photos, and was great to work with. She got our sneak peek photos to us so quickly so we were able to share the news with friends and family. Her photos were gorgeous, and we would absolutely recommend contacting Kim for your engagement/wedding photos!Sent on 16/01/2021

Talented, friendly, organised, relaxed...
Talented, friendly, organised, relaxed, there are so many words we could use to describe Kim. After interviewing a couple of photographers we knew Kim was exactly what we were looking for. Our wedding day is still 18months away but we have already had our incredible engagement shoot in the mountains. Kim knew how to pose us in a way that wasn't awkward or forced and the photos truly reflect our love for each other. Kim sent some sample shots the very next day with our full set arriving only 8 weeks later.
We cannot wait to meet up with her again on our wedding day!Sent on 04/12/2020

We love the experience with Kim. She accommodated all the last minute changes we had. The photoshoot was fun, yet professional and the results are stunning. Kim remembered all of my requirements and put them perfectly into the photos. I would highly recommend Kim to any couples or groups seeking to have such great memories.Sent on 19/01/2021

From the initial contact to final pictures, Kim was an absolute gem! She was super easy to work with and also hilarious. We're very awkward in front of the camera but she made the experience easy and natural. She was quick to suggest wonderful places when we were struggling with ideas but was also very responsive to our vision. She was quick to respond to every email, and was incredibly accommodating, especially during COVID when there was still so much uncertainty.Sent on 06/10/2020
And of course, her photos are absolutely stunning! Highly recommend!

I could go on and on all day about how absolutely wonderful Kim is as a photographer! My husband and I were lucky enough to have Kim and her husband Marc join us for one week in Mexico for our destination wedding in January, 2015. From the minute I contacted her about engagement photos, I was blown away with her professionalism and her diligence in answering any questions I had within hours of me sending her an email. We were very nervous and awkward about taking photos, but Kim made us feel very comfortable, and was able to coach is into how to pose, stand, and look which was incredibly helpful! I was also pleasantly surprised with her turn-around time, sending us a sneak peek of photos within a week, and receiving all edited pictures from the wedding within 6 weeks! All of my family and friends are raving at how our wedding photos are the best they have ever seen- and I would have to agree. Both her and her husband were so much fun to work with, and she not only was a pleasant addition to the wedding day, but basically doubled as a day-of coordinator as well. There is not one thing I could possibly complain about during this entire experience, and I would have to say Kim was the very best investment we made into the wedding. I would recommend Kim to absolutely anyone, and would encourage more couples to consider her as a destination wedding photographer as well!Sent on 09/04/2015

Lake Louise Proposal

Kim is incredibly nice. She is extremely professional and I appreciate that her photos are very natural and not posed. She was very accommodating and even allowed us to pick two locations. We did photos with Kim in December 2020 and her response time to scheduling a date was lightning fast. Then even though it was the holidays she was able to send me all my pictures in the time frame of 2 weeks. Kim really cares about her guests and does everything she can to make them feel comfortable. Also, as a plus she spoke french, which was greatly appreciated by my fiancé from Quebec.Sent on 04/01/2021
Kim Payant Photography's reply:Merci beaucoup Holly et Nick! I had a wonderful time taking your engagement photos in Banff and happy to hear you love the photos and had a great experience working with me! Thanks again and I wish you all the best!

Best Photographer Ever!
Kim was our photographer for our October 10th wedding in Canmore. From the time I contacted her over a year before the wedding until receiving our completed photos, she was the most professional, friendly, kind, and helpful vendor that I worked with. She went above and beyond throughout the whole process --- from providing tips ahead of the wedding regarding commonly forgotten things, to helping button my dress and bustle it up! Her photos are absolutely breathtaking - truly out-of-this-world, and she made the whole process so comfortable for both of us with her direction and advice. She captured so many moments that I don't even remember happening; she was invisible at the ceremony and somehow still got so many amazing shots! We are beyond grateful that we chose Kim as our photographer, especially with the crazy year this has been - she was calm, collected, and reassuring through all of our correspondence and on the big day. We will cherish our memories and photos forever. Thanks Kim!Sent on 13/12/2020
