The Whistler Elopements team is a tight-knit family. Literally. Tara + Steve are husband and wife, and Tara + Paul are brother and sister.
Tara + Paul grew up with adventure-loving parents. Yearly ski vacations and summers in the mountains. Dropping double black diamond bowls or climbing Mont Blanc (roped together at 2 am.)
When Tara + Steve started dating at 17, the family vacations had a fifth member of the family to join the adventures. This spirit of exploration has lead to a life in the mountains, working together to create unique adventure elopement experiences for couples throughout British Columbia and all of Canada.
Tara + Steve have been photographing weddings since 2010 under their sister brand, Tara Lilly Photography Tara has a passion for the outdoors and being surrounded by the beauty of nature. She thrives on getting to know our couples and hearing about their story. She will work with your vision for the day to find the perfect location for your adventure elopement.
Paul is been creating heartfelt, emotional video for wedding couples since 2017 when he and his wife, Hillary, moved back to Canada after two years in the Bahamas. Their two fur-babies complete their family of four. Free-time is spent in the mountains and exploring forest service roads on skis and mountain bikes. A creative eye attuned to seeing light has allowed Paul to discover amazing locations that are perfect for adventure elopements.
Steve has been photographing weddings hand in hand with Tara for 10 years and has recently been ordained as a certified wedding celebrant. Being a licensed wedding officiant as well a photographer completes the team. Two photographers, a videographer, an officiant, two witnesses, and a desire to explore, creates the perfect recipe for adventure elopements in Whistler and beyond.
