Evan is a hard-working medical student who loves sports and travel. Sam has a heart of gold and a passion for volunteering with a variety of organizations. Together they can usually be found at the beach, enjoying a picnic lunch, laying under the stars, or being endlessly entertained by their dog Keysha playing in the water. Even their first “I Love You”‘s were said over a picnic for Sam’s birthday. Of course beach picnics had to be included for their engagement shoot!
We decided that Lakeside Park in Kingsville was the perfect spot to capture the story of this adorable couple, and we couldn’t have asked for a better day! Besides the perfect weather and the lake looking like absolute glass, Sam and Evan made our jobs easy with their lighthearted personalities and genuine connection. Even after the 8 years they’ve been together, they still act as if they have a grade school crushes on each other. Their cuteness with each other definitely didn’t stop when we’d lower the camera to check shots.
Sam and Evan, you two are a blast to be with! We have loved getting to know you so far, and are pumped about spending more time together as we head towards your happily ever after. Five more months! xo

“Having Manifesto Photography as our wedding photographers was at the top of our ‘must-have list’ for our big day. Close friends and family knew how desperately we hoped to be able to book them and when we were able to it felt like winning the lottery. The sneak peak pictures were posted and friends from out of town, unfamiliar with these amazing photographers, instantly understood our excitement about why we wanted them. The timeless style and skill of Manifesto Photography’s work is the greatest keepsake we could hope for from our big day. Their attention to detail in every aspect of their work is nothing short of incredible. They have an amazing ability to be professional and yet completely approachable. They have helped to guide us in every aspect of our planning and provided advice and support in any way necessary. Their welcoming hospitality transfers to photo shoots effortlessly, allowing us to feel comfortable and open in a process we expected to be awkward. Of all the investments required for a wedding, having Manifesto Photography is the best one we’ve made, bar none.” – Samantha & Evan
