Today’s photos come to you all the way from beautiful Lake Louise, Alberta. Can you imagine a more ideal setting to get engaged in? Lucky for bride-to-be Colleen, she didn’t have to! This gorgeous spot is the view they enjoyed the day Demetri asked her to marry him, while on a hike up in the mountains. Talk about romantic! We were overjoyed about this epic location, and spending our day with such a happy couple was the icing on the cake. The scenery was only made more picture perfect once we got Colleen and Demetri behind the lens. They’re quick to cause one another to laugh, and they spent the day making even more memories in a place that’s become extra special to them.
We started out their session with photos at by lake, the perfect backdrop for this outdoor loving duo. From there, we headed just a few steps away to the Fairmont Chateau, a classic setting to photograph Colleen and Demetri all done up for date night. The stunning architecture, magnificent landscape, and totally in love couple all added up to one perfect day in our books!
Colleen and Demetri, we would make the trip for your engagement shoot again and again! Thanks for sharing a spot that is so treasured by you two. We so appreciate your warm and inviting personalities. Dinner at Nourish was the best (we still talk about it)! We can’t wait to capture each and every special moment at your wedding.
“Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible – it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could.” -Barbara de Angelis
“I first came across Manifesto Photography about 5 years ago when I saw some wedding photos that a friend of mine was tagged in on Facebook. I remember thinking they were incredible photos that stood out, far above any other wedding photos that I had seen before. All the photos were “Lighthearted, Personal, Genuine”, as their motto goes. So I ‘liked’ their page, and started to follow them. As time went on, I saw more and more people I knew getting married that were photographed by Manifesto. It was at that point that I hoped one day we would be fortunate enough to have Manifesto capture all of our special moments on our wedding day! So then it happened. Demetris and I got engaged on a Sunday and the following day, I mentioned to him that there was a local photographer that I really loved and wanted to book for our wedding. I think he thought I was a little crazy as we had literally just gotten engaged. We had hardly picked a wedding day, but I was already emailing Manifesto to find out more information! The rest is history! We were very fortunate that Arica and Josh were able to make it out to Alberta and do our engagement session in the very same place we got engaged, beautiful Lake Louise. They made us feel very comfortable throughout our photo shoot and really got us to relax and have fun. It was a great day, filled with jokes and laughs! Words cannot express how ecstatic and excited we are with our engagement photos and we cannot wait to see what our wedding day will bring. I am so happy that I stumbled upon Manifesto Photography all those years ago, because it will allow us to treasure our special moments for many more years to come. Thank you so much Arica and Josh, you are both incredible people who have such an amazing talent!” – Colleen & Demetri
