From Photographer to Friend

Kaitlyn was our wedding photographer in Bragg Creek. She created such a fun atmosphere for us throughout the day and wasn't hesitant to be adventurous at our location at Elbow Falls. She was great to work with leading up to the wedding with making decisions and preparing. Then we kept in touch after with other projects and now it feels more like we gained a friend. Definitely recommend Kaitlyn for your big, fun events!

Grad Photos

Kaitlyn was so great! I made a very last minute booking for my daughter's graduation for her and her friends. I messaged Kaitlyn at 12am at night requesting a photo shoot for the next afternoon, she got back to me first thing in the morning and made it happen! It was only to be a couple of friends but turned out to be a large group of friends and Kaitlyn just shot away. The kids had such a great time and Kaitlyn took so many great photos in such a short period of time I don't know how she did it to be honest!

From the Heart: Kai's Unmatched Care and Dedication in Capturing Our Wedding Day

From the moment we first met Kai, we were struck by her warmth, her attention to detail, and her clear passion for her craft. Throughout the planning process, she was always available to answer our questions and offer helpful advice, and she took the time to get to know us as a couple, which really helped her understand our vision for the day.

Despite the challenging weather conditions on your wedding day, Kai (and Cam, second shooter and Kai’s partner - fantastic person, if you have the chance hire him as well) were absolute troopers. With temperatures reaching as low as -40 degrees Celsius, it was not an easy day for anyone involved. But even in the face of such adversity, they remained upbeat, proactive, and completely unfazed.

On the day of the wedding, Kai was an absolute joy to work with. She was incredibly organized and professional, but also relaxed and easygoing, which put us both at ease and made the whole experience so much more enjoyable. She managed to capture all of the important moments of the day without ever feeling intrusive or disruptive, and she was always on hand to offer guidance and direction when needed.

And when we received the final photos, we were absolutely blown away. Kai had managed to capture the essence of the day so perfectly, from the small, intimate moments between us and our loved ones to the grand, sweeping shots of the ceremony and reception. Her attention to detail was unparalleled.

Additionally, it was such an amazing experience that we had to repeat it (lol). We ended up hiring Kai for another session of portraits and again that was another fantastic experience, not to mention, the photos were absolutely stunning!

Overall, we can't recommend Kai highly enough. She is a true professional in every sense of the word, and her love and care for her clients really shines through in every aspect of her work. If you're looking for a photographer who will go above and beyond to capture the magic of your special day, Kai is the perfect choice. She is FANTASTIC!

Stunning Engagement Session in Kananaskis

We just got our photos back from our engagement shoot and we are OVER THE MOON. Kaitlyn went above and beyond for us! She's an excellent guide, very personable and makes the whole experience full of fun and adventure. If I'm this excited about our engagement photos, I can't even imagine how our wedding photos will turn out. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! These photos (and the memories creating them) will be cherished forever.

Canmore Wedding Photo Shoot

Kaitlyn was amazing to work with as our photographer to celebrate our honeymoon. Her overall attitude towards photography, and us as her clients was exceptional! She went above and beyond what you'd expect from a photographer; picking us up and taking us to different shooting locations, bringing us our favourite drink to celebrate our day, even going as far as to help the bride change her shoes! We would recommend Kaitlyn based off her attitude and friendliness, but the quality of our photos is a giant cherry on top.

Caring, Accommodating, and Creative Photographer!

Executing a wedding in a pandemic took planning, re-planning, and re-planning some more. Contracts had to be rewritten and renegotiated every time government and health restrictions happened. And last summer that happened a lot!!!

But as my wise father said "life doesn't stop happening or go on pause" and there was no need to put our love on hold or our life goals on hold. We had to change our expectations and adjust but in the end we got married and shared the day with loved ones.

We will do something bigger with lots of dancing at our 5 year anniversary.

With how amazing Kaitlyn at Owl Eye Photography was at being adaptable, encouraging, solutions focused, creative, and just plain rad, maybe we can have her there at the 5 year too!

Thanks Owl Eye for being the anchor ⚓ throughout our day; keeping it on point, timely, and full of love!

We highly recommend her!

Hands Down The Best, Book Owl Eye Photography Now!!!

From provinces away, We found Kaitlyn with Owl Eye Photography. We contacted multiple photographers to get a feel for who felt the best. We found Kaitlyn with Owl Eye Photography on Wedding Wire. Right out of the gate she was prompt, courteous to our uncountable questions and was so polite all the while making sure we understood all of the packages she had to offer. Keep in mind we had never been to Lake Louise (small town Manitoba couple) so we were going into this totally blind. Kaitlyn took control and gave us the absolute best experience a person could ever, ever imagine. It was her added touches and suggestions that made our wedding. She was far beyond a photographer and went out of her way to plan us the best day we could ever ask for. We owe it all to Kaitlyn @ Owl Eye Photography and of course to Wedding Wire for the ease of finding this gem!!
