Each couple we meet is unique. We look forward to getting to know you, and it would be an honour to capture your love story.

We had the pleasure of working with Steve from Tara Lilly Photography. We had an amazing experience and would recommend 100%. Steve made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera, and was so fun to work with. He captured our wedding so beautifully. He was present and warm, while also giving us space to be in the moment - when we looked through our full gallery, we were not sure how he was in so many places at once! We got a sneak peak of our highlights so quickly and our full gallery was delivered exactly on time. Honestly, we could not imagine working with anyone else! Thank you!!

Yesterday Steve and Tara conducted our daughter's wedding on Whistler mountain and the post wedding photos back in town. I was blown away by Steve's ability to put everyone at ease during the photo shoot and the way he moved seamlessly from group shot to group shot. If I ever need someone to herd cats, Steve would be the Man 😉. Many thanks from two grateful parents.

Tara and Steve made our wedding so special! Tara was so unbelievable the photos she got of us are amazing! We were blown away. She let us enjoy the day with somehow catching every shot! Steve officiated our wedding and he had Bobby and I relaxed and laughing. Everything he said on our day as perfectly us! We don't know how he does it but it felt so special and personal! The two of them together are a dream team no wonder they are married 🙂

We hired Tara for our wedding and she was by far the best vendor we had. Our photos are stunning and she did a great job of capturing candid moments, which is exactly what my wife wanted. She was very easy to deal with throughout the whole process. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer.

Tara photographed our wedding this past August, as well as our engagement photos, and they are amazing. She is very professional and really knows her stuff. She took the time to listen to our requests for photos and didn’t miss anything. She was by far the best professional we had at our wedding and many guests complimented how detailed she was. She was kind enough to also photoshop some family photos for us a couple months later. Highly recommend!

We worked with Tara and Steve through Whistler Elopements and we had an amazing experience. We couldn’t be happier with how our photos turned out – it is really hard to choose our favourites! The photo galleries were sent to us shortly after our wedding day, which was so exciting. They are very communicative, made us feel at ease and comfortable while taking our photos, and they are such lovely people to be around. Our gallery contained a great mixture and variety of candid and posed photos, and Tara ensured to capture the various combinations our family was hoping for too. We had quite a range of weather on our wedding day and it was reflected so beautifully in the photos. Highly recommend booking with Tara Lilly Photography!

Tara shot our engagement photoshoot and Tara and her husband Steve together shot our wedding. We did our engagement shoot in Whistler and it happened to be pouring rain in the village the day we travelled all the way from Victoria to do it. Luckily Tara knew a spot we could drive to at a higher elevation so the rain would actually be snow and we ended up with the most magical winter wonderland photos! On our wedding day the rain struck again slightly derailing our wedding day timeline / photo plans for the day. Tara and Steve were in touch with our planner and wedding party throughout the day (taking this off our hands) and took charge of adjusting the timeline and coming up with new shooting locations based on the weather conditions. I was definitely stressed watching my plans be derailed and they could both sense this and brought the best calming / cheerful energy as well as taking care of any of the logistical things so I didn’t have to worry - seriously they were ON TOP OF IT. I was also told by my planning team that they were helping them out with their tasks and drying off chairs etc before the ceremony as well! We are so thrilled with how our photos turned out. Highly recommend hiring Tara if you want 1) happy calm vibes 2) an experienced professional who is not thrown by last minute challenges 3) someone who is organized and will make sure everything stays on time and 4) beautiful photos!

We are so so thankful to have Tara and Steve capture our wedding! We got married at Sea to Sky Gondola which can be a tricky venue with all the different locations and views, but they captured every single moment perfectly! They were super easy to work with, very communicative, helped us with poses, communicated the first look, affordable, and very fast turnover rate for photos! My friends have waited over half a year for photos, we got them all much faster! Would recommend Tara and Steve to anyone who is looking to capture your wedding perfectly and for all photo moments!

Tara and Steve are the best! The images they returned of our wedding were absolutely breathtaking and we are so glad they were the photographers we went with for our wedding. They had our venue mastered, totally took charge on helping us look our best and planning out how they were going to capture our big day. So easy to work with, great pricing, and I would recommend Tara Lily to anyone!

I recently had Tara photograph my cousins wedding and she was so personable! She held the role of calm and fun all in one throughout the entire day! Her contagious laughter added joy to the day and her attention to detail added reassurance. Thank you Tara and team!!!

Steve was an awesome wedding photographer! Having photos getting taken does not come natural to us but Steve made sure to make us feel comfortable the whole day! Everything we wanted captured on our wedding was captured and the love and passion definitely showed through his work. We don’t regret hiring Steve!

Breathtaking photography! Tara was the photographer for the elopement we booked through Whistler Elopements and we highly recommend her. She has an incredible eye for detail and a true passion for what she does and it clearly shows in her photography. We couldn't be happier with how our elopement photos turned out. They are absolutely magical. Thank you for a lifetime of beautiful memories!
