Keltie and Brad

We chose 6:8 Photography because we viewed the website and loved the picture gallery. We were also very pleased to see that 6:8 Photography was used in the Kicking Horse brochure, which is where we were having our wedding.

The best part about working with Kevan? To put it simply, it is Kevan himself. From our first FaceTime to sorting out the final album he was an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only is he a truly wonderful man, but he takes amazing pictures and we are so happy to have him capture our special day. He did an amazing job!!!!!! It was truly a fabulous experience from start to final album creation.

Don't hesitate to use 6:8 Photography!!!!!!!!!!!! You will be so happy you did - we sure are!!!!!!! :)

Bride's veil gets caught in wind at Prince of Wales Hotel at Waterton AB

When Craig and I first talked about getting a photographer for our wedding, I told him that it was the most important thing to me (besides getting married to him lol). I wanted the most amazing photos that could tell our wedding story to look back on. Well, I can honestly say we got just that and looking back now it was the best decision we made going with 6:8 Photography.

One of the first things we told Kevan was neither of us had professional photos taken before. In saying that we wanted someone that could guide us in capturing the best pictures possible while looking very natural. Having our engagement photos taken first really helped us get to know him and how he worked. He was the most down to earth easy going person, making Craig and I feel very comfortable in front of the camera. He might not say the same for me, as I may be a bit picky at times lol, but he sure worked with us to see my vision through and then some!

Craig and I had a blast getting our pictures taken, and they captured some pretty amazing moments (if you couldn’t tell already). We may have needed a little extra assistance at times and they had no problem jumping in.  Kevan had taken a moment to help Craig by pushing the back of our getaway bike up a hill after seeing him struggle since I wasn’t much help in heels. The second photographer ran after my fly-away veil catching it before it flew off a cliff. We can’t say enough about how much they went above and beyond for us. They exceeded our expectations tremendously in what we envisioned for our wedding.

Having full faith in your photographer the day of your wedding is a MUST. 6:8 Photography really did that for us. To know your photographer will capture those moments that you only get to live once but can look back on forever meant the world to us.

We are so happy we went with Kevan and 6:8 photography for our engagement and wedding photos. Kevan was very focused on making sure we got the style of photos we were looking for and was also really fun to work with. He also catered to some of our unordinary requests and managed to keep our wedding party (relatively) focused for photos - everyone had fun working with him. His ability to capture a moment, a laugh, or a feeling is absolutely priceless, and he has a creative eye that results in very unique and breathtaking photos. When we look at our wedding photos, we feel like we get to re-live the day. We would recommend 6:8 photography to anyone, regardless of the occasion.

Island Lake Lodge, Fernie BC

When budgeting for our long-awaited wedding, we knew photography was a top priority and we spent countless hours looking at blogs and galleries before settling on our top 3.

6:8 was at the top of our budget but after meeting with Kevan we were sold on his photography style, unassuming personality, and the fact that he was local to our venue.

Throughout our engagement shoot and wedding day, Kevan kept us relaxed and comfortable and anyone who interacted with him on our wedding day has commented on his friendly professionalism. Kevan has an unbelievable eye for light and composition and has given us so much more than beautiful pictures of our day – instead, we have amazing pieces of art that capture both the emotion of each moment and the natural beauty of our venue.

Although we were worried about the budget at first, we can honestly say our experience and photos are worth every penny and we would not hesitate to recommend Kevan and 6:8 Photography.

LaToya and Max

When Max and I were searching for a photographer for our wedding, we treated it with great importance. This was one of the highest priorities for us, and we were going to be picky. After searching through multiple portfolios from both Fernie and Calgary, it was clear who we liked best. We wanted to see photos that weren't staged or typical; they needed to be unique, and 6:8 photography showcased that well. We met with Kevan and he brought up something very important that all engaged couples should consider - photos should show the story from your wedding, as they will be the only thing you take away. In other words, make sure you've got some good photos at the end of the day!We decided to put our complete faith in Kevan and he did not disappoint. Our photos are magical, period. My first thought when I looked at them was "these look like they belong in a magazine!" It was a challenging day as it would not stop snowing, but the snow became part of our story, and the photos we got are so very special. Max and I are just thrilled. We had vaguely described how, ideally, our photos would turn out, and it was like he read our minds. They are not only exactly what we were looking for, they were better.I can say with certainty that we would not have wanted any other photographer for our day. Max and I will always cherish these photos, and we are so glad we chose Kevan.

Wedding couple have private sunset dance at Island Lake Lodge

We chose 6:8 Photography because Kevan is a Fernie local and advised us that he knew our venue, Island Lake Lodge, very well and also beautiful places to take photos in the area. It was important for us to have someone who has local knowledge of the Fernie area. I had also looked at Kevan’s work through Instagram and found his work to be stunning and really what we were looking for in our wedding photos. We wanted to capture the mountain landscape and have that incorporated in all of our photos; Kevan’s work does just that! Lastly, we knew right from our first meeting with Kevan that he is genuine and would be a pleasure to work with! He was always positive and professional throughout the time we worked with him and had wonderful energy on our wedding day.

It is not very often you get to have professional photos taken of yourself and it can be a little bit nerve-wracking at first, especially on your wedding day! Kevan’s calm demeanour and positivity made it very smooth and fun working with him. He provided simple directions while we were being photographed and our pictures turned out amazing. It was also important for us to have some photos taken in the wilderness around our venue, which required us to do some mild hiking to capture these shots. In my wedding dress and all, Kevan made this part of our day fun and exciting! We could tell Kevan had done this many times and knew what he was doing. Also, Kevan was open to trying different things to capture the images we really wanted. For example, we wanted to have sunset photos taken and this required us sneaking out of our reception dinner for 30 minutes at the perfect time. Kevan planned this well and we ended up getting some of the most beautiful shots of the day during this time.

Kevan was very accommodating and patient with us all. He provided great direction and had an amazing eye for locations that we would have not thought of. I like that he also help direct us to certain spots and sort of taking over where to take the pictures (we are pretty easy going and didn’t have a NEED for certain pictures) all the while still incorporating some of the important photos we requested. Kevan was able to engage with everyone and even put up with Paul and his brothers jokes and quirkiness.

Megan and Jake

Leading up to the wedding there are so many decisions to make, both big and small. One big decision, which was very important to my Megan and I, was who was going to shoot our wedding? We spent a few weeks browsing a ton of websites and narrowing down our search to about 5 photographers. We set-up phone interviews with them all. Kevan was immediately a stand-out. We appreciated that he knew his craft very well, had a lot of experience shooting weddings and had no issue taking ownership of the process. Kevan talked about the importance of having a vision for the day, telling a story with the photos and said he would have no problem climbing a tree or asking us if we would like to jump through a stream to grab that perfect shot. The process of booking Kevan was easy and we appreciated both his honesty and professionalism.

Our first experience shooting with Kevan was during our engagement session. Having never been photographed professionally before I had no idea what to expect and was honestly a little nervous. Kevan did a fantastic job of immediately making my wife Megan and I feel comfortable and at ease. He inspired trust throughout the process. When we received the engagement photos back I knew we made the right decision. I was blown away by the results!

Our wedding went off without a hitch. Kevan did an amazing job of capturing everything that we felt was important. One of the highlights of the day was when Kevan threw together a sample slideshow of wedding photos captured earlier that day which he played during our reception dinner. It was incredible! He was able to throw that together in a little over an hour while we had dinner. We received so many compliments from our guests. My Mom cried when she told me how beautiful it was. One guest wanted to immediately book Kevan for her daughter’s wedding the following summer. It was really a nice touch! The turnaround on getting our photos was very quick. Within a few weeks, we had scheduled a time for Kevan to come show us our wedding album. My jaw hit the floor. It was incredible and captured so many amazing moments! The ‘story of the day’ that Kevan talked about when we first chose to book him was really evident in the album. The process of choosing the final pictures for the album was long but beer and pizza supplied by Kevan made the process easier and more fun.

We have received so many compliments on our pictures and have an album that we will treasure forever. From start to finish Kevan did an incredible job and we enjoyed working with him. I couldn’t be happier with the results and I’d highly recommend Kevan to my family, friends or anyone else!

The primary reasons we chose 6:8 Photography was Kevan's personality & demeanour, as well as his fantastic work in the past. Kevan was calm, organized and made us feel very comfortable. He also took photos without us even noticing which captured real candid moments.
We are absolutely ecstatic with the results.
