Talented photographer and professional service from start to finish
My fiancée and I are from the UK. We are so happy that we chose Kim Payant to photograph our elopement-style, destination wedding in the Rockies.
All aspects of the wedding were researched thoroughly and when it came to finding a photographer, Kim's portfolio stood out for us immediately.
We were looking for a photographer that could not only take the formal, posed shots, but also capture the fun and spontaneous moments. We're probably not the most natural models so we needed someone that could give us some direction when needed! Kim did all of this in such a well-organised, professional and fun way that it made the whole experience wonderful.
Kim has an outstanding eye for detail. She was incredibly flexible and helpful - we honestly can't thank her enough for helping make our day very special, and for capturing every moment of it with such incredibly beautiful images.
We highly recommend Kim for any couple that's planning a wedding, where they need a talented, creative and professional photographer that will work with them to ensure a first-class experience from start to finish.Sent on 14/04/2020

Highly recommend Kim as a photographer!!!
Kim was absolutely amazing to work with! As two people that are generally shy in front of the camera, Kim made us feel incredibly comfortable and the photos show this, as they are stunning. Kim took the time to get to know us and find locations in the mountains that suited our personalities. She would also scout the locations ahead of time to ensure everything was just right. Our wedding was in winter, and Kim was also very efficient and made sure we were never too cold while we were outside for photos. Lastly, we'll emphasize that the final product photos were gorgeous and better than we could have hoped for. She is a true professional and we would highly recommend her as a photographer!!Sent on 16/03/2020

Kim is amazing! Very professional
We are so grateful for everything Kim did for us not only on our wedding day but also the lead up to it. We are from Australia and got married in Banff. We had many questions that Kim was more than happy to help answer, not just relating to the photos! We had planned on an outside wedding (in January), however it was minus 26 degrees Celsius! Kim was brilliant in helping us get our room "photo" ready for the ceremony as we changed the location to our room (Buffalo Mountain Lodge). We had a 2 hour photo package with Kim, however she was so professional that she arrived early to help with planning/set up and due to the freezing conditions drove us to each photo location and kept the car running for us to jump back into to thaw out between shots!! She really went way above and beyond what we expected. The quality of the photos are exceptional. Highly recommend Kim if you are looking who to take your photos..Sent on 12/02/2020

Exceeded our expectations from beginning to end.
Kim exceeded our expectations from the first point of contact right up until delivery of our photo gallery to view. She made every step seamless. She had a wealth of knowledge and resources at hand to help in any way she could and was always more then happy to offer help/assistance where and when needed. Her communication with us was excellent. She went above and beyond to make our wedding day photo shoot a positive and memorable experience. If you are looking for a photographer to complete your wedding planner team, pick her!!! Thanks for being "you" Kim.Sent on 30/12/2019

Breathtaking and Timeless
Kim is truly the best at what she does. She was a great addition to our wedding day. Our images are amazing, she knows awesome spots to take you. Her time management and quickly working with a crowd knowing family by name was so professional yet personal. We highly recommend Kim for any occasion.Sent on 02/02/2020

The best in Banff!
We had a very small ceremony on Lake Louise in Banff and I found Kim online through a Google search and I’m so glad I found her! Her attention to detail was spectacular. She knew exactly what she was doing and was able to direct us in a kind yet professional way. When I received our photos I cried and laughed and was so happy. I didn’t even realize some of the shots she had captured and was so surprised and grateful. Her relationship with other vendors and knowledge of the area was so helpful. Choose Kim! You won’t regret it.Sent on 04/01/2020

Exceeded our expectations!
Kim was wonderful to work with ! We had the pleasure of having her to capture our engagement photo shoot and our wedding day. From the moment I found her she put my mind at ease in knowing who to choose . I was in between a few photographers and her thoughtful, informative and prompt response sealed the deal in hiring her . Not only Is she super responsive and prompt she takes so much pride and passion in her career and her stunning photos prove it . Shes super professional, talented and patient. She is also very well versed and knowledgeable of all of the beautiful and secret spots in surrounding banff and emerald Lake . She has a way of being likable and still authoritative enough to direct large groups for amazing family shots. We are beyond grateful for everything she did for us. She was more than just a photographer, she was an extra support system ! She provides you with all of the tips on preparation from what to wear , what to pack and what to expect on the day of . She offers so much value and top of everything she is super affordable and competitively priced with very flexible package options. We couldn't be happier. The next time we need a photographer, we will definitely be using her . Thanks again Kim !Sent on 12/12/2019

Kim made the rainy day turn into gorgeous photos!
Kim was very good about communication and ensuring she knew what we wanted for our day. It turned out to be a very rainy day (with an outdoor ceremony) and the pictures are so beautiful! She was able to find some great indoor locations, worked with us with some umbrellas (which made from some amazing and unique wedding photos as well) and we received several sneak peek pics the very next morning! I'd highly recommend Kim to anyone looking for a photographer! She was truly wonderful to work with.Sent on 04/11/2019
