Tim & Karen

It seems within the wedding industry that photographers find each other wherever they travel. My first trip to Kingston a couple of years ago was no exception, as I was introduced to Tim Forbes at a local pub by our mutual friend, Ben Benvie. This year Tristan and I traveled back to Kingston to meet Tim at the same pub, only this time he was surrounded by his closest friends and his beautiful fiance Karen. Tristan and I were there to photograph their wedding the next day at Grant Hall, on the Queens University campus. Leading up to the wedding I think I may have told Tim I was “so excited” literally dozens of times, and Tim always replied with equal excitement. I loved seeing how excited he was about his wedding. Tristan and I are so lucky to be surrounded by not only enthusiastic brides, but grooms as well. As for Karen, I felt she always carried herself with such grace. During the portrait session Tim kept noting, “I can’t believe how great you are about this”. She is quite honestly the perfect match for Tim, and I could really see a difference in his smile from the first time I met him, years before.

For us the first wedding of the season is always a memorable one, and this was even more so.

We are so thankful for the friendships we’ve made (including you Scott!) and the trust they all had in us. If you’d like to see the slideshow from the day you can view it here. Tomorrow i’ll be posting the film photos we took through out the day.
