It’s nice when you find someone you click with, someone who you feel you can do just about anything with; Caitlyn and Adam are a testament to this statement. Whether it’s trying different breweries and wineries, hanging out watching movies, or walking their beautiful Siberian Huskies Arya and Theia, they know how to make their time enjoyable simply by having the other by their side.
We met Caitlyn and Adam at Sprucewood Shores Estates Winery for their rustic, romantic, engagement shoot one warm September evening. Under shaded trees Caitlyn and Adam nestled close together holding each others hands, laughing, stealing kisses here and there. By then the sun had started setting and we wanted to make the most of the light left in the day, so we walked between the rows of green grape vines burning deep gold in the dwindling light for a couple photos before heading to the beach for a glass of red wine and a beautiful sunset. We ended our shoot as Caitlyn and Adam walked along the lake shore hand in hand, the water gently sweeping towards the sand.
Caitlyn and Adam we were so thrilled to take your engagement photos. We are so excited for the the future you four (Arya and Theia included) have together and can’t wait to see you once again at your wedding!

“One of the most important decisions we made while planning our wedding was the photographer we would choose to document the most important day of our lives. This decision weighed heavily on us. After spending weeks looking through what feels like hundreds of photographers online portfolios, we could not help but feel like nothing measured up to the work we saw displayed by Manifesto Photography. After that, the choice was simple — we needed to have Manifesto photograph our special day. We knew if we had gone with anyone else that we would have had a nagging thought in the back of our minds that our photos would have turned out better had we gone with Manifesto Photography. It was so important to us to have Arica and Josh as our wedding photographers that we even moved our wedding day to a date they were available.
Our initial meeting with Arica and Josh was so reassuring that we had made the right decision. They made us feel comfortable, and they were so easy to talk to. It didn’t feel like we were meeting two people for the first time, it felt like we were catching up with longtime friends. They were so approachable yet maintained such great level of professionalism. They really made an effort to get to know us and cared about making sure the photographs they took were true to our personalities. They were so helpful and thought of so many details that we hadn’t even considered.
When it came to working with Arica and Josh for our engagement session they were nothing short of amazing. They exceeded all of our expectations and they made sure everything was perfect. There were even a couple times Josh would stop in the middle of shooting to fix my hair to ensure they captured the perfect shot. Adam had an unexpected rip in the side seam of his pants and Josh quickly rushed to grab his “emergency kit” and fixed him right up. They went above and beyond, and we’re so grateful that they care as much as they do. The amount of effort they put into each shot truly shows in the our engagement photos. The smiles that you see in these pictures are genuine — mostly because every time we tried to crack a fake smile Arica and Josh had us rolling with laughter, ensuring they were capturing candid moments. To say we enjoyed ourselves would be an understatement. They were so easy to work with and I think that’s apparent in our photographs. When we received our sneak peak engagement photos we were over the moon with excitement. Just as we had expected, Manifesto had delivered perfect results. When it came time to choose which photographs we would include in our album we had such a hard time narrowing down our favourites because they delivered so many picture perfect moments.
We have no doubt that our wedding photographs will be absolutely incredible. As long as we have Arica and Josh capturing our most precious moments, they will be documented beautifully. We would not hesitate to recommend Manifesto Photography to anyone looking for wedding photographers. By choosing them you’re ensuring that your memories will be captured to perfection.”-Caitlyn & Adam
