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

Wesley Forbes Photography - AMAZINGGG!!!
I cannot say enough good things about Wesley Forbes. I am so incredibly happy that we chose him to do our photos for our engagement and wedding. As a testament to this we have already booked him again for a family session and are extremely excited about it. His energy is amazing, he makes even the most shy people come out of their shell for incredible photos. My parents raved about how comfortable they felt around him and his team. He is extremely efficient, we had both our engagement gallery and wedding gallery posted in a few weeks. He is extremely responsive and has great ideas for cute (insta worthy) photos. He also had great ideas for locations for our engagement shoot!Sent on 29/10/2020
It felt that he really got to know us and understood us as a couple and knew exactly what we were looking for in terms of photos, vibe during the photo shoot and captured our day perfectly.
You will not be disappointed if you choose Wesley Forbes!

We love wes!
I truly don't have enough good things to say about Wes! Due to the pandemic, we couldn't get home to have our wedding. We decided less than a month before our wedding date that we still wanted to tie the knot, and decided to throw something together last-minute here in Ontario. I reached out to Wes and he was so helpful throughout the whole process. He was extremely responsive, and helped us create a timeline for our day and gave us all sorts of awesome advice! We were already blown away before we even met him, but he exceeded our expectations more than we could have possibly imagined on our actual wedding day!
Wes was so flexible and his attention to detail was extraordinary. He captured so many 'little moments' that I would have never thought to request. This guys also does NOT waste any time! We booked him for four hours and by the amount of pictures we got in our gallery, you would think we spent the whole weekend with him! Our family was also so impressed with Wes. He had us in stitches the entire time. All those laughing pictures on the walls are genuine!
If you are considering booking Wes for your wedding (or any event for that matter!), seriously do it! He is efficient, his prices are super fair, and he captures the most amazing and magical photos and makes you look WAY better than you think you ever could! Thank you, thank you, thank you Wes!Sent on 06/11/2020

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

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!

One of the best big day decisions
I don’t even know where to start to describe our experience with Wes. We can’t recommend him enough ! Wes made taking photos so fun and effortless which is even more important when you don’t love being in front of a camera ! He takes the time to get the perfect shot all while having a good time. Not only are his photos stunning, but he is so easy to work with, communicate with and was so efficient at getting our pictures back! We are blown away by how amazing our engagement and wedding photos turned out and will treasure them for years to come. Having a wedding comes with a lot of big decisions, and choosing your photographer is one of them. We are so incredibly happy we chose Wes, and I promise it will be one your best decisions too !Sent on 16/11/2019

Amazing experience - we couldn't be happier!
We absolutely loved working with Wes! He shot our engagement photos and our wedding day, and we couldn't be happier with our experience! He immediately put us at ease - his energy and positive attitude is contagious.
He was very collaborative and organized - making sure he knew what was important to us. He also masterfully captured all those special candid moments you can't plan for! We're so grateful to have them to look back on.
I can't tell you how many compliments we've received - not only on the photos, but from guests at our wedding that observed him at work. He truly loves what he does & it's obvious when you're around him.
We would work with Wes again in a heartbeat!Sent on 12/01/2020

Best Photographer Ever!!
Hiring Wes was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. He captured our day perfectly!! He provided us with a ton of variety and delivered gorgeous after gorgeous shot. We have so many pictures to choose from!! Pictures were a very important part of our day and he really took a lot of stress off me knowing he was beyond capable. He is also just a lot of fun to be around, very easy going, and genuinely enjoys the day with you.Sent on 15/03/2020

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.
