Toronto Couple Married in Banff
Kim is an expert at her craft and wonderful to work with. She understood our vision and took the initiative to ensure we had the perfect wedding day. She played a critical role in the planning and the execution of the wedding. My husband and I are from Toronto, so most of our correspondence with Kim was electronic. Kim was responsive, reliable and insightful. A real gem to work with.Sent on 31/08/2020

COVID elopment in the mountains
I cannot say enough about Kim. She was incredibly helpful from the very first email. I can be very indecisive but she helped me narrow down ceremony locations, pose ideas and how to orchestrate a first look. We had the wedding day of our dreams in the beautiful mountains beside Lake Minnewanka. She helped us feel super comfortable during the ceremony and all of the photos, even allowing us to come up with last minute pose ideas, climbing over rocks with us to get the right shot. On top of the day going very smoothly, we got our photos back and were in tears! They were amazing! Thank you so much Kim.
To anyone looking to get married in the mountains, Kim is incredible and has a wealth of knowledge about all the best photo spots and vendors in the area.Sent on 31/07/2020

We had a long-planned elopement on February 29th in Banff and from our first step into researching vendors we knew we wanted Kim to photograph us. During the months approaching Kim was contacting us to find exactly what we wanted. On the day she was everything we needed. Being from the UK the temperatures in Banff in the winter aren’t exactly what we’re used to but she even handled this brilliantly....getting us in the car to warm up, holding our coats for us to put on in between photos....everything we needed she was there. Our photographs are everything we wanted and tell the tale of our ceremony beautifully. We can’t wait to return to Banff one summer and have some more pictures taken....Kim is simply the best and we couldn’t recommend her more!!Sent on 19/06/2020

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
Kim Payant Photography's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words and awesome review! It is truly appreciated! I'm really happy to hear you enjoyed your experience working with me and love your photos! I had a wonderful time photographing your elopement at Lake Louise, you were so much fun to work with! Thanks again and I wish you all the best!

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
Kim Payant Photography's reply:Thank you so much for this amazing review and for braving the cold winter weather! You guys were amazing to work with! Thanks again for having me photograph your special day!

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
