Alexandra & Chris | Hamilton Engagement Photography | Bayfront & Locke St, Hamilton, ON

A couple weekends ago I had the pleasure of working with my newest couple, Alex & Chris!

They were brave souls who handled the cold weather like pros.   Although it was one of those days where if you stood in the sun it was cozy, but the shade was miserable.   Anyway, needless to say we stayed mostly in the sun.

These two didn’t need much direction or encouragement to relax and try to be affectionate with each other–it just happened.    And although we chose locations, and outfits, etc. all this loving and happiness here is purely authentic.

And the camera can’t lie.DSC_2504-Edit

The first spot we went to was where Chris proposed–down by the Bayfront on this very bench.    The Bayfront is also the location of their first date. aadiptych DSC_2604-EditaadiptycDSC_2684-Edit DSC_2711-Edit

To warm up we beetled over to Chuck’s Burger Bar on Locke St where they graciously let us take over the resto for a bit!   If you haven’t made the trip to eat here you are doing your mouth a disfavour.   You need to go now.   We only had time to order a GIGANTIC plate of fries, and yes, I helped eat them, but they have a succulent variety of burgers and poutines.  You must visit if you’re in Hamilton or make a special trip if you’re out of town.

Then we played chicken in the street for a while.  That was fun.

And somehow the whole shoot came back to french fries!   I can’t explain it…but french fries are really important to any healthy relationship.  As you’ll see below…

  1. Wow!!! We love them, you truly did a wonderful job Claire! We had such a great time galavanting around the city with you and can’t wait to have you capture our wedding moments too!

    PS… Is it weird that we have french fries in the oven right now?? Guess you’re right, it’s the stuff that truly makes relationships stick ;)

  2. Wow, these photos turned out so great! And you’re right Claire, these two love birds don’t really need any direction on how to be ‘lovey-dovey’. Ha! Can’t wait to see what you do for the wedding!

  3. Great to see the pictures of my nephew Chris and Alexandra. Can’t wait to meet you Alexandra. Thanks for posting them.

  4. These photos are AMAZING! Claire, I’m singing your praises to everyone, everywhere. You’re an amazing photographer. My niece is, of course, super beautiful and photogenic (and Chis is very easy on the eyes too), so… he he.
