I've been taking pictures since I was 12. I remember borrowing Kodak how-to photography books from the library and thinking those 70's hairdo's were pretty darn funny.

But that didn't scare me away from wanting to take pictures. I wanted to be a photographer. Even as a kid I noticed light and colour and the thing I wanted most was a camera. I loved the feeling of waiting for a roll of film to be finished so I could see the pictures.

But oddly, I went to college to become a family therapist ... then quickly got distracted by being editor of the yearbook, flunked a bunch of courses ... and I now have half of a counselling degree. But don't get me wrong, on a wedding day this can come in handy. :)

Now I shoot weddings and portraits for a living and I'm based out of Kingston, Ontario but travel all over Canada.

I LOVE what I do. It feels good to know what I was put on earth to do, and actually be doing it. Read less

Tim is exceptional. His style of photography is extrememly unique and very real, which is what grabbed my attention in the first place. I felt when I looked through his photos of other's weddings I actually got to know the people in the photos. Now when I see the work he did for us, he was able to protray exactly who we are so well through our photos. They feel like us. He captured such beautiful, real moments between us, my sister and I, our families and our wedding party. We could not be more thrilled with the lifelong memory he's given us.

On top of the quality of his work, Tim is just a great person. He's funny and approachable. He made posing in public, which is very awkward for us, fun and comfortable.

Tim is a true professional and takes such pride in his work. The package that he sent when our photos were done was beautifully presented. He was so easy to communicate with, always available and quick to respond.

Thank you Tim for helping make our day so special, so comfortable and so us.

Tim shot my wedding this past May in downtown Toronto. If you are a fan of photojournalistic wedding photos, and lots of great candids, he is your guy.

His work is absolutely incredible. Everyone who has seen our wedding photos just raves about them. They truly captured the essence of the day so perfectly. Many of our other vendors (venue, decor, bakery, wedding planner) have asked to use some of his photos in their promo materials because they are such great shots.

He was also really nice and down-to-earth. He was honest and straight-up and was really easy to work with.

We were so thrilled with the pictures Tim took of our wedding. They were absolutely beautiful. As much as we were warned to “take in the day” it still went by so quickly. Thankfully we have a wonderful collection of memories that will last forever. Special moments of us and our family and friends were beautifully captured in a unique way; some moments that we were well aware of and other moments we would have missed if not caught on film --when our attention was elsewhere at the time.
At the end of the day every bride and groom hope to love the pictures, and we did. They are amazing!!! However, we were also so impressed with Tim’s ability to adapt to last minute changes, poor weather and various personalities. He was a pleasure to interact with from start to finish.

Forbes photography was amazing! One of the best choices we made for our wedding was having Forbes. We wanted candid shots, and photos to capture the mood, emotions and the entire day and Forbes did just that. We can look through our amazing photo album and relive each and every moment - its like watching a video. You don't need a videographer with Forbes.

From a brides perspective - I never even knew Tim was there - he was descrete, professional and amazing. I look at the photos and can't beleive he took as many, and captured such amazing shots and I didn't even know he was there! Friends of mine have said that my photos are the best wedding photos they have ever seen! Our wedding was such a special time and having the best possible photographer capture it for us was so important - we are so thankful to Forbes for making the most important day in our lives last forever.

I would highly recommend Forbes photography - he is a photo journalist genius!

My husband and I decided to hire Tim Forbes to be the photographer at our wedding. We also lived on the other side of Canada and had to get in touch with our vendors mostly via e-mail and telephone which can sometimes be a problem given the circumstances. Firstly, we LOVED the photos and style of photography that Tim offers...no "posy" shots which is great and really captured the moments of your special day. Tim was very flexible in terms of getting back to us right away when we had questions and made it easy since most of our questions and answers were over e-mail which was great. On the day of, Tim and his assistant made everyone feel relaxed, told us not to worry about anything and took the most amazing photos of our wedding. So much so, we can not choose a favorite. Despite the price being a little bit more than the usual...you get what you pay for and provides lots of different options and packages (A la carte so to speak). I would recommend Tim to all friends, family and to any bride and groom who are looking for modern, photo-journalistic style photography. Simply put...AWESOME! Thanks Tim!

If you want to be sure that you'll get great pictures of your wedding day, hire Tim Forbes!!
Before the wedding, Tim was very responsive to any questions I had. At the wedding, you barely noticed he was there. After the wedding, the photos were available very quickly.
I'm so happy with the service (and photos) I received from Forbes Photography and would highly recommend him to anyone. :)

We would highly recommend Tim as a photographer for any occasion. We had him take our wedding pictures. He has a talent of being able to capture personal moments without being invasive. The pictures turn out really beautiful. It is nice not to have lots of pictures without everyone having a “say cheese” smile on their faces. His ability to capture genuine moments is amazing. Everyone should remember unlike food and dresses which last for one day, pictures last FOREVER so make sure you hire someone like Tim because you’ll actually want to look at them for the years to come.
