In honour of Valentines Day we teamed up with our pal, Oliver, from O's Clothes to bring you a couple's fashion story. The photos were shot on location at the James Street Bookseller, a beautiful bookstore located at 134 James St South, that sells new and gently used books and has an impressive collection of rare and special editions. Our beautiful couple was "Hamilton lovers", Ciara McCann and Andrew Baulcomb. Ciara recently started working at Joseph Brant Hospital as their Web and New Media Coordinator. Andrew is a talented writer that has worked for many local publications and is currently putting the finishing touches on his own book all about the Hamilton music scene from 2006-2011. The two lovebirds were married this past May and their adorable connection is apparent in the photos.
Finally, our talented photographer was George Qua-Enoo, a portrait and lifestyle photographer based in Hamilton. George was originally born in Ghana, and often travels around the world shooting photos for various NGO's. He did a great job capturing Ciara and Andrew's natural chemistry and was a delight to work with.
