The most spectacular engagement shoot

The women at Owl Photography, Kaitlyn and Jas, are absolutely phenomenal at what they do. From initial consultation to the day of shoot and follow up with our engagement gallery, Kaitlyn has been not just an excellent creator, but a friend.

She helped make our dreams of a mountain and lake photoshoot a beautiful reality. Her communication for all logistics, planning and questions was impeccable, she is beyond friendly and passionate about what she does.

During our session, we hiked up Lake Moraine and finished with a canoe and in water photos, despite how cold the glacier water was, she was fully committed to creating our dream. Kaitlyn was an absolute pleasure to create with and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Our photos are absolutely breathtaking, to say she is an expert in her trade would simply not be enough. Thank you Kaitlyn for your passion, creativity and now friendship. You made our dreams come true.

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.

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!

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!

Kaitlyn Hoover
Kaitlyn Hoover

Hey there! My name is Kaitlyn, some call me Kai. I'm 27 on Earth Day, which is my favourite because I am a total child of Mother Nature. Owl Eye Photography is my baby! I aspire to be everything that makes up of who we are by simply being myself!

Fun Facts:

  • I've had a camera in my hand since I was 6
  • I love the ocean and forests
  • I'm a bit wild, more free spirited person
  • Aspired Mountain Guide In Training
  • Working as an Instructor at Nakiska Ski Resort
  • My cats name is Mathiya, she lounges on my shoulder
  • I'm a sister of two sisters, one brother and a crazy loving mom
  • Camryn Cheeseman is the name of my boyfriend
  • I live in a cottage with no cell phone reception in Kananaskis
  • LOVE to travel!
  • I pretty much binge watch anything that has to do with vikings, witches, mystery and drama!
  • Oh, I don't drink coffee - my energy is through the roof! Tea all the way!

I'm currently working towards getting my level 4 as a dual Ski/Snowboard Instructor through CASI & CSIA. As well, my guiding courses through IGA to become a photography tour guide.

My biggest dream is to have an add on Backcountry All Inclusive Service where I will guide my clients and host workshops into the deep woods of the Rockies. I plan on teaming up with some local companies to add diverse activity within water rafting, horseback riding, cave touring, helicopter adventures, and alpine activities + more.

You may find me as a photographer instructor at artsPlace, Canmore. I do host private sessions and recently started a YouTube channel to curiate more of my teachings and art!

I shoot on a Canon 5D Mark iii, Pentax Z70, Polaroids, Nikon D7100 and learning how to fly Drones.

Creative Portrait is my hobby as it holds the Fine Art true to itself. I like to think I am alright at photoshop, as I have spent many long hours creating images from images and beyond!

Video editing is pretty neat to and I got some gear to help me curate short films to add more of moving vibes for my clients wedding day!

Essentially when it comes to cameras, photography, film - COUNT ME IN!

I love creating moments, because this life is all we have for now! Making laughs and new found friendships are the most importrant and I hope we get that opportunity together!

My name is Jasmine, I am 24 years old born and raised in Canada. Currently residing in Canmore.

For 5 years now I have been personally documenting my life and sharing it with the world online for the sake of storytelling and sharing my experiences to inspire others through YouTube.

I find something very special about capturing moments, making magic and sharing them with people. I have a passion for teaching yoga, making music, engaging with mind, body and spirit connection on all levels.

Some videos I have produced indlude:

  • Mindful living

Sharing things I’ve learned along the way inspires me to impact people lives in a positive way. For me, it’s all about planting seeds of love along my journey.

I absolutely love being invited to capture moments that mean a lot to people, gifting them with an experience to reflect back on through the years. I look forward to creating sacred art with intention and contributing to the world in this way.

Second Shooter / Assistant

Hey I'm Sean and I was born in New Brunswick; however, spent my younger years learning and growing up in beautiful British Columbia. I graduated from BCIT with a diploma in Marketing Management (professional sales option) and went on to sell products and services for the industrial sector.

Eventually my career path led to relocating in Alberta where I fell in love with the mountains and decided to make it home. Inspired by my surroundings, I began to focus my time on wildlife photography which led me to meet new people and open the doors for new opportunity.

After connecting with Kaitlyn Hoover (Owl Eye Photography) I finally had the mentorship needed to achieve these goals; with new skills, and positive leadership I quickly went from an assistant to lead photographer in no time.

Currently, I am the owner of Murchadh Marketing which provides online solutions for small businesses looking to improve their SEO and overall digital presence. Continually working on my photography skills, I look forward to future opportunities, as well as the challenges that come along with them.
