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.

Services offered

Couples can choose from the various wedding day collections offered or customize one for their celebration. Tim usually has an assistant who helps with gear and lighting.

    Simply the best!

    -Professional in every way: communication, attire, promptness. Contracts were electronic and easy to access/sign

    -Friendly: the whole process was very non-intimidating

    -Ease: communication was prompt and I felt like I didn't need to worry about follow through. You often reached out to confirm details before I did. electronic contracts/payment was very easy

    -Product: fantastic. Everyone who has seen the photos has nothing but good things to say. I appreciate the mixture of styles (eg. more traditional portraits/group shots, and non-traditional storytelling)

    I am in love with all the photos and will treasure them for years to come.

    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.

    Amazing professional service!! Would highly recommend!

    I booked and planned our wedding at Boldt Castle from where I live in Nova Scotia. I researched photographers online, and from first contact with Forbes Photography (Tim) I was impressed with their response time to emails, reasonable pricing, photo gallery online and willingness to answer all my questions. We had a truly positive experience on our wedding day with our photographer Tim and would highly recommend this company for your special day!

    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.
