We first met Kara at one of our DSLR Workshops. She’s smart, gorgeous, and sweet. We like her a lot! When Kara reached out to us about photographing her wedding, we were so glad! We have loved getting to know them as individuals and as a couple over the last couple of years. Their wedding day was a remarkable celebration focused on family, great food, and fun.
We started their wedding day coverage with their morning preparations. The girls had a pretty relaxing morning being pampered with hair, makeup, and Starbucks. The guys exchanged gifts, had a few drinks, and a lot of laughs. After they were ready, we headed over to Hiram Walkers, where Kara and Anthony decided to do a ‘first look’. It was a great opportunity for them to sneak away for a bit and take advantage of the exquisite grounds there. It was an emotional and genuine moment when they saw each other for the first time. If you want to see what true love looks like, scroll down to see their faces when they saw each other. It was adorable! It’s always a tremendous honour to be a part of these intimate moments in the lives of our clients. Afterwards, we went to Willistead Manor Park (where we did their engagement photos) to do a few more photos with the wedding party.
Their ceremony and reception took place at the fabulous, Mastronardi Estates Winery. The location was superb, the food excellent, and the party rockin’. Two outstanding moments from the reception were when Anthony surprised his dad with a Tarantella dance, and later on when he played with his band for the crowd. He is one talented musician! Everyone loved it and danced the night away.
Anthony and Kara, we are blessed to call you clients and friends! We are so happy you strolled into our lives through an equal love for photography, great coffee, and food. We look forward to watching your love story unfold throughout the years and enjoying many more great memories together!

“Manifesto was fantastic. Our photos are everything we wanted and more. But the biggest feedback I have is about the journey. They had us feeling special from start to finish with their service. Every action was so devoted to their art, and it’s no surprise that they captured our day so perfectly.” – Anthony & Kara
