About Forbes Photographer

Tim Forbes has always been fascinated by photography. As a kid, he was drawn to patterns of light and colour, and he began taking pictures when he was 12 years old. After deciding to leave college, he become a family therapist and started his own photography business in Kingston, Ontario. With a unique style, he aims to document the love and emotion you'll feel on your wedding day.

Experience

Tim began his photography business in 2006. Previously, he had shot a couple of weddings for friends and loved the rush of capturing the perfect moment. In 2008, he attended the Foundation Workshop, which taught him compose his images cleanly and inspired him to constantly improve the work that he does.

    Look no further. Tim’s your man!

    Tim is amazing. We booked him for our wedding in July 2017. Don’t bother looking anywhere else. He is incredibly professional and captures moments at the exact point they are the most special. His posed pictures, with family etc, are incredible and beautiful parts of our new home. But his most notable talent is his ability to seemingly be invisible during most of the event. So much so that we barely saw him, and wondered how he got any pictures! However, when you see the seemingly infinite deck of photos he comes up with, you’ll be blown away. He captures the most precious and meaningful moments in a beautiful and candid way. No one else does work like he does. You will NOT be disappointed, and I guarantee you will eventually write a review as glowing as this one in the future. HIGHLY recommend. Consider it a must for your wedding or event.

    All you can wish for

    Absolutely amazing experience! Couldn't be happier with our photos. Tim was there to make us happy and caught so many magical moments that we didn't even realize were happening! He was so patient with disappearing (and frozen) children and got down on the floor to interact with our nieces. 100% recommended.

    Excellent Experience

    For our wedding, there was nothing more important to us than having a good photographer. With his photojournalism style, Tim captured all these precious moments that sometimes lasted just a fraction of a second. Tim made us feel at ease and we would often forget he was there. We really appreciated how quickly we received our pictures and our albums. Tim’s professionalism is exemplary and he delivered above and beyond our expectations. We strongly recommend his services.

    Highly Reommend Forbes Photography

    Tim was truly amazing to work with. Neither me or my husband are from the Kingston area even though we decided to get married there, but thanks to Tim being the King of the wedding community in Kingston he recommended many of the vendors that we decided to go with for our wedding. Every one of them was amazing. He was so professional, accommodating and easy to get along with. It felt like we were old friends. We also love his approach of getting candid moments as opposed to "staged" pictures. I will forever cherish the photo of my husband and I kissing at midnight as we rang in the new year surrounded by our family and friends celebrating. Thank you Tim :)
