Dave and Steph’s Wedding With Wes
I’m not sure I’ll have enough room to explain how AMAZING Wes is. We booked him over a year out from our wedding date and fell in love with his upbeat, relaxed and hilarious personality immediately. Our engagement photos were SO much fun to take; Wes arrived early to our location (that he so kindly volunteered to drive to) and had all the best spots scoped out before we arrived. He is an EXPERT when it comes to finding the best lighting and suggesting the best poses.
On our wedding day, Wes stayed with the girls while our second shooter went with the boys and having Wes at our Airbnb put us all at ease. He even fixed my groom’s suit button immediately before the ceremony started-what a gem! He has a knack for finding the best photo spots and for taking the best candid (and posed) shots. We asked him to get a group shot of all of our guests with us following the ceremony and our guests LOVED his sense of humour and ability to take the photos so quickly. My (now) husband and I were like, “duh, he’s the best.”
Wes will make you feel SO comfortable, respond to your emails so quickly, and help you finalize your wedding day timeline so that you’re not flustered. Our guests commented on how quickly Wes would put down a bite of food during dinner if he heard laughter or applause just to make sure he didn’t miss a great shot!
Booking Wes as our photographer was hands-down the best decision we made for our day. I couldn’t have imagined hiring anyone else as our photographer. We got along with him so well and the sneak peaks we got back (less than 2 days after our wedding) are absolutely stunning.
Wes had suggested the coolest locations to take photos at and our wedding party had the greatest time knowing that the poses would be fun and “true to us.”
Thank you, Wes, for helping us capture so many amazing memories from the best day of our lives and for being the best photographer imaginable. We think of you as a friend and are so lucky to have had your expertise, laughter, and professionalism on our big day.
With all our love and appreciation,
Steph and DaveSent on 09/10/2019

Stunning Photo's and Contagious Personality!
I don't even know where to begin with Wes! He was next level amazing! Right from the beginning he was responsive, friendly and extremely helpful. From the beginning we were looking for someone to do our Ontario wedding, but also recommend a photographer in Alberta to do our engagement shoot. Wes one upped our ask and agreed to be our wedding photographer and travel out to Alberta to do our engagement shoot. After meeting Wes in person we were instantly drawn to his personality. He made the whole experience so enjoyable. My husband even enjoyed 2 days of shooting, and that says a lot for someone who doesn't like getting their photo taken! Then COVID hit and Wes again was next level amazing! He worked with us through 3 different date changes. Everyone raved about him on our day and how amazing he was and on top of that our photos turned out so amazing!! I can't stop looking at them! With Wes not only are you getting a professional who cares so deeply about his work you're also getting a friend and someone who is so contagious to be around. We couldn't be more thankful to have had him as our photographer! His photo's are soft and beautiful, what talent! I could go on and on about his work! So thankful to have found him!Sent on 28/11/2020

Amazing! Amazing! Amazing!
No words can describe how thankful we are to be able to have Wesley as our photographer. His energy and personality already sets the mood for perfect photos. He knows how to take charge when it’s needed and he was able to capture every special moment with every family member that was requested. We love not only the posed photos, but the ones that show how much fun we are having at night in the dance floor. I truly recommend doing a first look as well which really captures the love and special moments between you and your partner. Definitely recommend Wesley Forbes photography for any special occasionSent on 23/10/2019
Wesley Forbes Photography's reply:Aww, Thank you so much for the beautiful words! You two are the best! It was a beautiful day. And Some of the highest energy family members I have ever seen! The dance floor was bumping! Thank you again for the oppurtunity to help celebrate with you and Eric and to tell your story with my camera!

Great engagement photos, can’t wait for the wedding photos
Wesley was recommended via a family friend whose wedding photos turned out great. We hired Wesley for an engagement shoot, and ended up with dozens of “favourite” photos out of the many he shared with us... despite some super challenging weather, and a last minute change in timing to avoid torrential downpours. We felt at ease during the shoot and he had lots of great ideas for getting some creative shots.Sent on 08/03/2019
We got many compliments on our engagement photos, which feel very “us” and not overly posed... and have hired Wesley for our upcoming wedding. He has been very quick and easy to reach and generally extremely easy to work with.

I'm Wes, I have a tendency to over use exclamation marks!! Probably because I am always excited about meeting new people or maybe because I just had a coffee?! ( maybe a little of both! ) So don't be alarmed when you get your email back and there are more exclamation marks than you've ever seen!
I have two young daughters and run my own business. So I pretty much live off of caffeine and adrenaline. ( Starbucks addict right here!! )
I live an active lifestyle, Between the gym and climbing objects during weddings to get "THE SHOT" I am always on the move. It helps with me being able to keep up with my two daughters.
I have been photographing weddings for the past 6 years, during that time I have been involved with over 170 amazing couples! I have photographed at most of the amazing venues in the London, Sarnia, Kitchener & Waterloo area.
I am continually inspired by the couples I meet. Every couple's love story is unique and beautiful, and I have the absolute privilege to tell that story through my craft.
Let's get to know each other a little more to see if we'll be a good fit for your
