Summer Love:
Engagement at The R.C. Harris Water Treatment Plant
Patrizia & Stephen, Toronto

There are moments when everything aligns perfectly – the location, the lighting, and most importantly, the couple. Our recent engagement session with Patrizia and Stephen at the R.C. Water Treatment Plant was one such magical experience that beautifully blended glamour, sunset hues, and modern style.

Patrizia, the creative force behind Blushing Aura, a renowned event design and production boutique in Toronto, is someone we’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with in the past. So when she and Stephen approached us to capture their engagement session and upcoming wedding, we were overjoyed. And let me tell you, the session did not disappoint.

From the moment we started shooting, it was evident that this session would be filled with laughter, love, and style. Inspired by glamor and the golden hour glow, we set out to explore the picturesque surroundings of the R.C. Water Treatment Plant, with its industrial charm and stunning sunset vistas.

Patrizia stunned in a chic white dress paired with elegant Christian Dior heels, exuding timeless sophistication. Her choice of accessories, including cute white sunglasses and pearl gloves, added a playful yet refined touch to her ensemble. Meanwhile, Stephen complemented her effortlessly, radiating joy and love with every glance exchanged between the two.

One of the highlights of the session was capturing the couple against the backdrop of a sleek black Porsche. It was a moment of pure elegance and sophistication, perfectly encapsulating the modern flair that Patrizia and Stephen embody. The addition of direct flash photography injected energy and excitement into the photos, infusing them with a high-fashion edge that elevated the entire shoot.

But beyond the stunning aesthetics, what truly made this session memorable was the genuine connection shared between Patrizia and Stephen. Their joy was contagious, whether they were sharing tender moments or bursting into laughter. It was incredibly fun and heartwarming.

As the sun dipped below the horizon, painting the sky in hues of orange and pink, we couldn’t help but feel grateful to have been a part of such a special moment in their journey together. From the industrial chic of the water treatment plant to the glamorous accents and radiant love, every element came together seamlessly, creating a visual story that will be cherished for years to come.

As we look forward to capturing their wedding in August, we’re filled with excitement and anticipation, knowing that it will be nothing short of spectacular. But for now, we’ll hold onto the memories of this enchanting engagement session. We can’t wait to share the wedding photos later this year.

It’s always a DREAM working with Purple Tree, but in particular our photographer. She has shot for me many times before and I keep coming back because she is so so talented and the sweetest person ever.
Our photographer shot our Engagement shoot last August 2023 and I’m completely obsessed with my photos. They are so easy to work with, always makes us feel so comfortable. I love how they direct us if we don’t know what to do, because let’s be honest sometimes it’s awkward but NOT with them :)
I cannot wait for my wedding in August this year!! I just know the photos are going to come out incredible because of her and the Purple Tree team! With lots of love xoxo
