Sometimes fate hits you at the most unexpected of times, like…while you’re working! Jordyn and Tim met while on the job for the City of Windsor and formed a connection instantly. Their friendship grew deeper over adventuring outdoors, hanging out in the best spots around Detroit, and being on the water. It’s fitting then, given their love for being on the water and exploring Detroit, that for their anniversary Tim proposed to Jordyn on top of the Detroit Princess during a sunset cruise. He waited till the top deck was clear towards the end of the night then lead Jordyn up to take in the beautiful view; he proposed as the sun set! Full of excitement and love, Jordyn said yes and the two began their journey towards becoming husband and wife.
For Jordyn and Tim’s engagement session, we decided to begin our shoot at the charming Sandwich Post Cafe in Sandwich Town where Jordyn and Tim cozied up together over mugs of hot tea, watching the world move outside from the big windows by the bar.
From there we went to Burnet Park, a great location to showcase their love for nature, and a place their handsome German Shepherd-Lab mix Charlie could appreciate! We went closer to sunset to take advantage of the beautiful autumn light and were not disappointed. The sun set slowly as Jordyn and Tim walked through the tall grass below the rows of trees freshly bare from the last time the leaves fell. They walked hand in hand, laughing and smiling at each other, enjoying the time they were were able to spend in that moment.
Jordyn and Tim, congratulations on this next step towards becoming husband and wife! We had so much fun shooting your engagement and can’t wait to see you both again on your wedding day!

“I saw the work of Manifesto a few years ago before I had ever even imagined what my dream wedding might look like. I immediately fell in love! I used to look through their photos on my study breaks throughout University and imagine how many ways they could capture the love Tim and I share. As soon as Tim proposed to me I remember thinking I need to lock in a date and venue just so I could book Manifesto and ultimately make all my engagement and wedding photo dreams come true. To say it was amazing to work with Arica and Josh on my engagement photos would be a complete understatement. For some reason Tim and I were extremely nervous as we’ve never been photographed in this sort of setting before, Arica and Josh made us laugh, loosen up, and act ourselves while showing how excited and in love we are. With only giving Arica and Josh a few short last minute ideas of what Tim and I wanted they were able to entirely read into the theme we were looking for, while providing endless ideas and possibilities. I will continuously recommend Manifesto to everyone because I know they will have an unforgettable experience just like Tim and I did.” – Jordyn & Tim
