    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.

    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!

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,

    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!

    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!!

    Owl Eye Photography's reply:

    Seriously you and Sam are the bee's nee's!! Jasmine and I had so much filming you up at Lake Moraine celebrating your ceremony with Cheryl Cooper!

    I was so happy to plan your day and scout out the locations for you guys! My pleasure, especially when your new to the area!! Its my backyard! Whatever makes it easy for you show up and be one and take off any excess thinking - thats what I am here for !

    Sunset at Lake Louise with the Fairmont with you two was absolutely stunning, running through the meadows, jumping into each other's arms, kissing under the night stars.

    Outstanding talent!

    Kaitlyn made us feel so comfortable on our wedding day in Cuba. 'Comfortable’ because we knew that she would not only get the job done (punctual, professional, great quality, etc.) but comfortable in the sense that we was working with true artists. We felt at such peace working with her prior to our big day because she walked us through everything step-by-step and we felt freedom because she wanted what we wanted. I feel like it is rare today to find professionals with true heart and talent behind every inch of their work. Kaitlyn is amazing to work with. She captured every beautiful moment of our day and turned our photos into masterpieces that we will cherish forever. I’ll never go anywhere else after experiencing what she can do!!!!

    Owl Eye Photography's reply:

    WOW!! Jessica! Thank you for starters! Cuba was the most difficult, challenging and fantastic place to travel to! My team and I learned so much. We had such an amazing few days with you and your loved ones and then taking you and Jailen out for your own private tour to some locations in the local area. To this day these are still my favourite images!! They are to die for! Your comfort levels were through the roof and you guys being your sexy, loving, natural selves is what made photographing you and traveling and having fun in these places possible! I am so thankful you purchased wall art for your home and thank you cards with pictures on them for your family and friends to see and have yet another memory of you both! Thanks for believing in us, loving us and loving my work! You help make small business like myself love so passionately at what we do! Thank you so much for the kind words!

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'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.

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!

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.
