    Excellent Pictures

    My experience with Kaitlyn was amazing. She made the planning for my engagement effortless and she did a lot of the heavy lifting for me. Once I decided she will be my photographer, she did not disappointment in any aspect. I told her what my vision was and then she called the florists in the Banff region and had that set up as well as our tickets to go up to Sulphur Mountain.

    The pictures she took were amazing and beautiful. The only thing more amazing and beautiful than the pictures she took was her bubbly personality. Me and my fiancee had a memorable weekend in Banffs and it is all thanks to Kaitlyn and the amazing work she did.

    Owl Eye Photography's reply:

    Chujan, your love for Sinthu is amazing and you seriously went above and beyond for her. You ordered adozen roses, took her to a mountain peak and then booked a 360 dome at the Banff Fairmont Springs just to have wine with her and make her feel as beautiful as she is!! You spoiled her so well! You two are going to have a very prosperous marriage and loving healthy life together. You both are so sweet and I enjoyed the weekend spending it in Banff taking you on a tour and getting to know you both while you sip some Champagne and enjoyed the scenery!

    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.

    Owl Eye Photography's reply:

    Chris you are absolutely a gem towards Megan! I met her back in high school and she has always been a kind loving person, I am so happy to have been apart of these beautiful portraits after you celebrating your wedding love over the New Years! Thank you for the amazing day, beautiful photos and great conversation as well a helping had in your own skills ! It was a cold one and you guys sure did trooper it out!

    Owl Eye Photography's reply:

    Hello beautiful,

    It was quite the arrangement for you to make it all the way here finally eh?

    After two reschedules, going through one photographer, family last minute cancelling and from the original spot being in Newfoundland, you and TJ made it all the way to Banff, Canada. Where you both celebrated. Looking beautiful as all !

    Your family was so dashing to get to know and fun! Thank you for having Owl Eye Photography's team out. Jasmine had an amazing time videoing and a wonderful evening with everyone for dinner. Thank you for having us, we really are happy to have made your wedding everything you could imagine after all that COVID-19 has put you and many others through.

    One love,

    Kailtyn Hoover

    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.

    Owl Eye Photography's reply:

    Megan!

    You guys where so fun and corky! Sean and I loved laughing with you guys and having a snowball fight, nothing like being a little kid to keep the passion of love going. It was amazing and crazy how the time crunch worked out with getting a minister last minute. Two Jack Lake was amazing spot with the wide range of mountain view! I am happy you and Darien came out to Banff for this special day. It was your first time in the mountains and it makes me so happy you reached out all the way from the USA! I hope to see you guys in the near future!!

    Best of luck with the new house, and the British Columbia air

    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.

    Owl Eye Photography's reply:

    I miss you guys ! I love that we connected so well. You were amazing to speak with and plan the beautiful proposal at Lake Louise! What I loved the most is that Mercedes had your love note from when you dating in her back pocket. I appreciate your honesty along the whole way of journey in money, where your at in life, being real about life it's self. It made it a wonderful joy to work with you and be apart of that special, funtastic few hours we have had. I really appreciate your recommendation and new friendship we will continue to have. I look forward to when we have the opportunity for Cam and I to be apart of your dreams and goals with the cottage ! I hope to celebrate with your friends on your love and be there making more memories! So so so much love !

    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!

    Owl Eye Photography's reply:

    Emma I would be happy to plan with you all over again! It was so fun to work together during one of the most craziest times of the year and life as whole! I truly look forward to your 5 year plan in renewing your vows!

    Your father was not wrong and I am so pleased to have met him + all your family and friends! You are all so down to earth and I totally can't wait to dance with you all again!

    Our journey has been amazing with meeting through zoom, then joining our first session together at Elbow Falls for our engagement! To later planning more for the wedding and then our get together for creating amazing wall art for you both!

    Thank you so much for your recommendation and review ! I love you both and am so happy how we still keep in touch!

    An amazing experience

    I hired Kaitlyn to capture our proposal and engagement photos and I cannot say enough great things about this experience. Kaitlyn was extremely flexible and helpful with ideas, making my proposal beyond amazing and special. Afterwards, me and my fiancée had so much fun with our engagement photos as Kaitlyn made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and we couldn’t be happier with how the photos turned out and how easily she was able to capture our emotions on camera. We will remember this moment for the rest of our lives and would recommend Kaitlyn to photograph any sort of special moment to anyone and everyone.

    Owl Eye Photography's reply:

    Patrick.... NO THANK YOU!! This was so epic going up in a helicopter with you and planning the most funnest proposal with champagne and heading out into the backwoods! You are so awesome and so is Jessica!! You two are a bunch of cuties and I hope you have a wonderful year planning!!

    Gahh!! I loved going out to Lake Louise after we left Alpine Heli Tour. You two were so easy to capture for the love that you passionately and naturally share for one another ! I hope to see you both in the future!

    All my love!

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.

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.
