Hey, friends! 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!! ) 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 wedding day.
Say Hello! >
"We are so thankful to have found Wesley! The photos from our wedding day are beautiful, we really could not be happier. Wesley provided lots of tips and planning tools to help us organize our day, which went incredibly smoothly. He was able to get all the photos in we wanted while also leaving us time to enjoy socializing with our guests. Wes was so much fun to work, making us and our families feel comfortable. He has an incredible eye for detail, truly showing off our beautiful wedding location and helping us express ourselves and interests on our wedding day. He is an incredible photographer and we are lucky to have met him."
Firstly- Wes' work is incredible. He is a very gifted photographer!
But also: Wes is hilarious! We hired him to work our wedding and I can't remember the last time (if ever) I had so much fun while being so on-the-spot. He really has an innate ability to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera, probably due to his wonderful sense of humour! I would recommend him to anyone in search of a professional photographer capable of creating + capturing the moment- whether that moment be romantic or candid.
"Wes was THE best photographer we could have ever imagined for our wedding. . He captures the most beautiful moments!!....Every photo was honestly amazing, he has a fantastic eye for symmetry and spotting great back drops for different types of photos. He also was hilarious and made us feel very comfortable and excited from the second we met him, he is very organized and professional at the same time. It’s also very important to have a really fun but directive photographer for your wedding to keep everyone organized and maximize time, and he did all of that perfectly. My entire huge bridal party loved him and we couldn’t thank him enough for capturing our special day so perfectly. Its like re-living that day every time we look at the photos and gets us emotional every time! Definitely will be in touch for future family photos etc!! Definitely recommend !!!!"
"Wesley Forbes is the BEST photographer a wedding couple could ask for! He is always capturing the best moments throughout the day and everyone LOVES him and his great personality. I would give him 10 stars if I could ! :)"
"Wesley is the kind of photographer a bride dreams of - I actually cried tears of gratitude while thanking him during my wedding speech. He was capturing the most beautiful memories as they were unfolding before my eyes. Wes is the perfect combination of easy-going and natural, yet professional and extremely focused. It was priceless having a photographer that I felt so confident in, and I could trust would take timeless pictures that I would look at over and over again. He had taken so many great candid pictures - everything from the first look with my husband, to us greeting our guess with big hugs, to laughing hysterically during the speeches. Every time I look through our wedding album, I re-live the day and get all the warm, fuzzy, magical feels. If you're lucky enough that Wes is available for your wedding date, scoop him up and lock him in - he really is a dream come true!"
"Wes is amazing!! We had so much fun with him on our Wedding day. He was so enthusiastic and excited to capture the day for us, which made everything even that much more perfect. The quality of our photos are phenomenal, he is definitely my number 1 recommendation for future. Thank you again :)"
Oh my gosh Wes! You have truly outdone yourself! These are incredible!! I laughed, cried, smiled and so many more emotions running through me! I cannot thank you enough for capturing our day in such a unique and special way! Again, I cannot thank you enough!!!!
