 Tara Lilly – Tara Lilly Photography


Romantic imagery meets epic landscapes.

Mikaela + Mitch held an intimate mountaintop wedding in Whistler, Canada, on the unceded territory of Sk̲wx̲wú7mesh & L̓il̓wat7úl First Nations⁣⁣⁣. We took 4×4 jeeps up to an alpine meadow, home to a number of animals including whiskey jacks. (If you’ve visited Whistler in the winter, you may have seen these small birds entertain skiers waiting in the lift line by landing on their ski poles held in the air.) Just as Mitch began his vows, a curious whiskey jack swooped in and landed directly on top of Mikaela’s head. Mikaela’s shock, surprise and laughter were not enough to dissuade this bird from his perch. “I’m Snow White!” Mikaela laughed.

An almost surreal place where emotion comes to life through the bride and groom.

Such a sweet and in love couple that involved me passionately. The simplicity of a refined wedding in Sicily with many facets, from the very romantic one between the two spouses to the very exuberant one in the post-prom party. In this photo, water actually falls from the roof in an almost surreal context, it is a dance floor where the bride and groom do their first dance together. I remember with amusement the slippery floor after prom. A few slips and lots of laughter to liven up the story of this wedding even more.

About Carmelo Ucchino

Since I was young I have loved photography, immersing myself in the photographic reality that surrounded me. I grew up with the old and beloved film, living a lot of time in the darkroom. I attended a professional photography school, the IED in Rome, where it is from an intense and creative working period began for all of Italy. Photographic exhibitions, cinematographic works and wedding photographic services From 2006 onwards I dedicated myself specifically to the Wedding sector, returning to Sicily and creating “Studio 58” a few years later, a reality that I still manage today. I have always liked comparing myself with others, to grow and improve… to know new, alternative points of view. Telling emotions is fundamental for me. Today my photographic work is reportage style. The photographic stories I tell are a set of visual sensations that fascinate me and that I love to immortalize in a photo. I am part of the most important Italian and international wedding photography associations in which I have obtained many important awards.
