Kate and Patrick MacDonald - Wedding
Kelly is an awesome photographer! I was a bit skeptical at first since my husband and I do not live in Calgary but I really needed a wedding photographer for our Calgary wedding. I chose Kelly based on his online portfolio and I am very pleased with my decision. The first time I met Kelly was at the rehearsal. Kelly was the first one there. Then on our wedding day, Kelly came early again. Wow, I was very impressed with his professionalism. All my guests were raving about how sweet Kelly was and I too agreed. I highly recommend working with him and give him 5 star rating!

Your work is above par! I have worked with my fair share of photographers and I was instantly comfortable and at ease. The images were unreal. Techniques were used to create interesting and unique images that I have not seen before (and like I said, I have seen a lot). When I received my photos, I was blown away. When you can't stop going back to look at them, you KNOW they're better than "good", they're fantastic! It was by far one of my top photography experiences!
Cheryl Waldner - Wedding/Portraits
Our wedding was photographed by Kelly Hofer (I believe we were the first couple that he did)...we had him along everywhere we could to capture all the events leading to the wedding and the wedding itself. I was impressed with every photo that he took and we have a wonderful collection. He was there shooting our first born girl and those pictures are priceless. He also did all our family pictures until he moved to Alberta. Since then I haven't found anybody reliable and the only pictures I have are taken by anybody standing close to us, willing to take a picture...the captures are not even close to what Kelly Hofer took...I will miss him forever.

I can still remember the first time we've met. Kelly and I have been great friends since then and he is the most passionate photographer I have ever met. He is an absolutely amazing photographer. He captures the normal things on a daily life and yet he makes it look like a work of art. I had a high fashion photo shoot with Kelly during September 2013 in Calgary and the next day he showed me a preview of my friend, Grace Okeny, that he took on our shoot and I was just blown away! My jaw dropped when I saw the rest and literally, I was in awe. I can't believe what I saw, One of the most exquisite pictures I have seen. Kelly should work for VOGUE or National Geographic Magazine because his work is stunning and he is the nicest and endearing photographer you will ever meet. He makes photo shoots fun! Being that I'm in Fashion school in Vancouver, I will definitely miss MR. HOFER! I am glad that I worked with him and he showed true talent and passion to all of his work! Great Job Kelly! :)
Rossana and Matt Keay - Wedding
We first discovered Kelly on Facebook when a friend liked one of his photos and we had the opportunity to see just how talented he was. When we met him for the first time, he had so much energy, and creativity rushing through him and already had so many ideas that went beyond our own imagination. We knew right away, this was going to be our wedding photographer. Don't let his youth fool you, he is bright, extremely artistic and has original visions of what the end product will look like. All while maintaining our ideas of what we wanted our story to play out in the photos. We had a Las Vegas, Flamingo theme wedding with our Wedding Party photos at a skatepark. He really captured our vision and our pictures tuned out colorful, fun, and unique. Not only was our end product more than what we expected, his professionalism and eager to work hard, and most of all his endless amount of energy really kept our vibes alive for the whole day of the wedding. He was not a fly on the wall, all of our guests kept saying, "who is that photographer?" He has charisma, and charm and a magnetic personality and we are so grateful to have stumbled upon this gem. Kelly, you truly are gifted!

Kelly's work is phenomenal! Great experience from start to finish. He is very adaptable in high pressure circumstances. Especially in my line of work, where not everything goes according to plan. The photos were delivered very quickly. I will definitely hire Kelly again. Without question
