Shauna and Chris are completely in sync. They share a love for travel, yoga, and delicious cuisine. They are big time family people and have hearts of gold. They are the best kind of people who add a little extra sparkle in this world and we adore them for it!
When planning this engagement session, we tossed around a bunch of ideas. Shauna had her heart set on wearing the gorgeous dress, the Karla Drama Gown by Nha Khanh, which you will see below. It served as our inspiration for this entire shoot, and with Sprucewood Shores Estate Winery as our backdrop, we had a winning combination. We wanted it to be fun, flirty, and romantic – and we can confidently say, mission accomplished! The photos turned out great, and the gorgeous sunset (that just so happened to match their colour scheme!) was the icing on the cake!
The whimsical flower crown was created by Gail’s Flowers & Event Decor, and X&O macarons and glittery cookie stacks were done by Shelby’s Sweet Shoppe. How lucky are we to have collaborated with two remarkable wedding vendors for this session?!
Shauna and Chris, we are so pumped to be your engagement and wedding photographers. You’re a pleasure to be around and we are really looking forward to capturing lots of memories together in the coming years!

“When we began planning our wedding, one of the first things that came to mind was picking a photographer who would be able to capture one of the only things you take with you when the wedding process is complete- photographs. After reading other testimonials and hearing friends talk about how great Manifesto Photography was, it was hard to imagine that Arica and Josh could really click with everyone they work with- but they absolutely do! After just a few minutes of meeting them it was completely evident that they are two of the most genuine and welcoming people we have ever met.They made us feel so comfortable and relaxed during our engagement shoot, with great conversation and laughs in between the shots! We cannot thank them enough for taking our vision and turning it into a reality, all the while making us feel like we were hanging out with friends. Their combined talent is like nothing we’ve ever seen before and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking for photographs they will want to keep and cherish for a lifetime. Arica and Josh, you are simply amazing.” – Chris & Shauna
