A Collaborative Shoot by Sarah Stoute, Lily McCondach and Tessa Taylor.

Looking at these images you would never say that they were taken in a small studio space in Christchurch New Zealand.

A few weeks ago, in my new studio, we embarked on a journey to capture the essence of elegance and romance in a breathtaking bridal shoot by the talented Lily McCondach. The vision was to achieve an editorial look that would inspire brides-to-be and ignite the imagination of fashion enthusiasts alike, we worked together as a team to meticulously curate every detail behind the lens.

The dresses were from previous collections, but with new beautiful models and flawless make up and hair by Tessa Taylor, we got to breathe new life into each look. From exciting modern silhouettes to timeless classics, my collection showcased a small range of designs to cater to an array of brides.

As the afternoon unfolded on a cold Christchurch day, there was an undeniable sense of excitement among everyone involved. Laughter filled the air as we collaborated and shared ideas, each of us driven by a shared passion for our craft and a desire to create something truly extraordinary.

Our talented team of creatives worked seamlessly together to bring our vision to life. Lily expertly captured each moment, immortalizing the beauty and emotion of the shoot through the lens of her camera. Tessa worked her magic, enhancing the natural beauty of our models and creating looks that were both striking and elegant. We all loved working together to create these special pieces.

In the end, the results surpassed my wildest expectations. This day was such a pinch-me moment! I have always dreamt of having shoots in my own studio. I cannot wait to do more shoots in this space and work with talented local creatives to showcase our passions and crafts.
