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!!Sent on 18/11/2020

Such a great experience!
Kaitlyn was a wonderful photographer, who made sure that my husband and I had a great time. Plans changed and she was willing to try to help meet the needs at a later date. She was a great resource for us since she helped make the day go by without a hitch. When I suggested to her that I thought it would be fun to have a snowball fight, she was more than willing to help us make that happen. Plus she couldn't have picked a more special spot for us to tie the knot.Sent on 13/05/2018

Banff Engagement Photos
Kaitlyn from Owl Eye Photography was both professional and personable during our engagement in Banff. We had doubts initially when booking from Germany, but were put at ease within minutes of meeting her. She was very responsive and helpful with planning beforehand and spontaneous during the photos (dance party in the lake, capturing the rain and mist at just the right moment, and outfit changes to capture color contrasts in our background). Every family member and friend has commented on the quality and details she captured in every photo. Kaitlyn pricing was very competitive and she worked with us regarding payments as this was a destination engagement. We couldn't have asked for a better experience, photos, or person in Kaitlyn.Sent on 11/07/2020

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!
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!
Videographer / Video Editor
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:
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.
