Our photography approach is simple.

We want to get to know you, so that we can bring your heart, beliefs, and aspirations into each photo that we take.

We don't just want to take great photos, we want to tell a story. Your story!

Arica Klassen

I’m the wife of Joshua, founder, co-owner, and also one of the lead photographers here at Manifesto! My favourite things in life are date nights with Joshua, naps, and finding any excuse I can to hold our Beagle, Buddy like a oversize baby in my arms.

Most days you can find me eating a PB & J sandwich, dreaming up engagement session concepts, editing your photos to perfection, and answering emails at ungodly hours. I’m most famous on weddings days for making sure everything is just right, weeping like an idiot over parent dances, and doing an awkward happy dance (mostly just karate chopping motions) when I get that perfect shot. The things I am most passionate about in life are serving the world by advocating for refugee claimants (I am a volunteer with Matthew House Windsor), and making sure that our clients are 100% satisfied with their Manifesto experience.

I’m one of the associate photographers here at Manifesto! I love being creative, and I love people. I have an eye for detail, a heart for my community, and a goofy sense of humour!

Most mornings you can find me curled up in my office editing away, music going (I love anything I can sing along to), and a cup of caramel coffee not too far from reach. I’m a friend to anyone who can make me laugh, a lover of blogs, style, Art History (definitely comes from my Visual Arts degree), and any book that I can get my hands on. I’m forever repainting, rearranging, and reimagining my apartment. I’m a planner at my core, but my artistic side always brings out my more easy-going nature. I started with Manifesto at the end of the 2011 wedding season as an intern, and was soon brought on as the office assistant. My love of photography and business eventually led me to start Lively Creative Co., a photography studio creating online content for bloggers and business owners. Fast forward to 2016, and I have again joined forces with Manifesto as an associate photographer and creative assistant. I try to bring a little sunshine to everything I do. Whether it’s posing you for portraits, or helping out by fixing up hair, I do it all with a smile on my face. I can’t wait to meet you and help create what will become the most beautiful photos you own!

Our Manifesto

You know that adorable dimple he gets when he laughs so hard his stomach hurts? The way you scrunch your nose when he kisses you on the forehead? Moments like those are the photographs we live for! They are the moments that immediately flood your mind with a thousand memories and give you butterflies all over again. Those are the photographs that become lifelong treasures.

We consider our photographic style to be lighthearted, personal, and genuine. Our goal is excellence throughout the entire process, making your photographic experience easy and fun. We don’t just want to take great photos, we want to tell a story. Your story!

Over the last 9 years, Manifesto Photography has captured the incredible memories from more than 200 weddings, and have been mentoring photographers and facilitating workshops since 2011. Our excitement for making our clients’ wedding day vision come to life and creating quality products to last generations is even greater than the day we started.

We primarily shoot between Windsor and the Greater Toronto area and are available to travel.
