Testimonials, Raves and Reviews for Boston Wedding Photographers Person + Killian Photography
What the Wedding Industry is Saying…
“Forced poses, gowns on hangers, group jumping–after a while, all wedding photos start to look the same. Not so when Jill Person and Laurén Killian are behind the lens. With a focus on atypical angles that capture the energy of the event, their images come out consistently vibrant, crisp, and beautiful–meaning the pair is in high demand for weddings and other high-profile shindigs around town. Book well in advance.” – Boston Magazine ( Awarded Best of Boston for Wedding Photography)

Including their work in our magazine and on our website in Real Wedding features, is always a great fit for our audience of brides since they really capture all the details that wow the guests and make an event memorable.” -Val Albrecht – The Knot
“I have had the opportunity to work with many photographers. Our goal is to match clients with the right vendors. Fortunately, I’ve been able to work with Person and Killian on numerous events.

in pictures, but they capture the emotions and bring you back to the particular point in the day.”
– Tasha Bracken Owner, SD Events

May 2013 – Allie and Will – Jill was incredible right from the start. I loved that the engagement photo session was included with my package. It gave my fiance and I a chance to work with Jill and become comfortable being professionally photographed. The engagement photos came out awesome. And Jill was so receptive to my input about where to take them. And then came the wedding day. Jill was such a calming presence to have around and very unobtrusive. The resulting photos are absolutely incredible! She captured so much emotion and joy. My family and friends can’t stop raving. Thank you Jill for everything!!

Nov 2012 Tricia and Joe -If you’re looking for an experienced, professional photographer….look no further. I hired Person + Killian Photography to capture my wedding, the best decision I could have made! Lauren was professional, fun and captured my day perfectly! My husband who is always a skeptic said, you could tell she knew exactly what she was doing, she impressed him and he instantly took a liking to her! The day of my wedding was very cold and windy; Lauren was patient making sure she got every photo we wanted and more. She captured every single detail from my dress to my shoes! I was so excited to see my pictures and so impressed with how many photos they were, I usually hate photos of myself, but now I have so many to choose from I don’t know where to start!! Looking at the photos was like seeing a video from the day; I got to relive it all over again. There is not one guest I don’t have picture of…..my guests commented on how she never stopped the whole night, she wasn’t intrusive but every time I wanted a special photo she was right there, plus she got some great candid’s, that I will cherish for years to come. Top notch photographers, with great personalities is what you want for your wedding…. I cannot thank Lauren enough for giving me the memories of the best day of my life.
October 2012 Amy and Rob Shea- Hi Lauren,We got the disc and started looking through all of the pictures. They came out so well! We absolutely love them. Thank you again!
October 2012 Danielle and Dan – Hi Jill! Dan and I would like to thank you for an unbelievable job!! We had so much fun taking photos (even in the rain), and you both made it very easy to relax and enjoy our very special day. Well, what more can we say?! The pictures say it all – you did an outstanding job capturing our day!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Our families and wedding party thought you were fantastic too, and we have the most amazing pictures to last a lifetime! Thank you again for your amazing photography!!
October 2012 Noelle and Adam Hartshorn- Hi Lauren, Adam and I just returned home from our honeymoon to find our wedding pictures. Thank you so much for the CD. The images are beautiful, you did a great job. Thank you again for all your hard work! Best, Noelle
September 2012 Tonya – Hi Jill, I wanted to take a moment and thank you for all your have done to make our wedding day special. The day was simply amazing and I could not have been happier with how well we worked together. It was so easy and at times I felt you weren’t even there! You made my family very happy. We got the disks in the mail and the pictures are absolutely STUNNING!!! You exceeded our expectations and we still look through all of our photos a lot! You really captured my day perfectly and viewing them was like reliving the day all over again. I can’t thank you enough Jill.
September 2012 Blair and Jon Staunton- Person + Killian photographed both my wedding and rehearsal dinner, and the pictures are amazing!!!! I received the first “teaser” while on my honeymoon, and literally started jumping up and down with excitement. Once the wedding is over, the photos are the only real memories/proof that you have that it really happened, and Lauren Killian captured the entire weekend perfectly. Aside from the pictures, the experience of working with Lauren was also amazing. She was so professional and made me feel comfortable throughout the weekend, which to me was priceless (she even helped take my veil out!) While I am sure there are plenty of great photographers in the area, working with Person + Killian is a guarantee for fabulous pictures and a calming presence on a day where those are the two things you want more than anything!
August 2012 Stephanie and JP Parker- We were lucky enough to have both Lauren and Jill photograph our wedding!! We cannot explain how wonderful and grateful we are to have them work with us. Not only are the pictures INCREDIBLE ( I mean I never look good in pictures and they made me look killer in everyone!) but they were in our mailbox the day we returned from our honeymoon! Unbelievable! To top it all off, they are very kind, fun, generous and warm women who became part of our special day. They always seemed to be at the right place at the right time, they listened to our needs and made us feel so comfortable. We knew we were going to be happy with them but I cannot reccommend them enough!! They took wedding pictures that are just so us and we are SO happy with them.
July 2012 – Alyx and Drew – Jill, our wedding day passed too quickly, but we’ll be forever grateful for the beautiful photos that let us relive the magic! Thank you for always being so patient & helpful. You captured our big day perfectly! We are your #1 fans!
June 2012 Cathy Seo -Lauren was amazing! She is so sweet and made us very comfortable from the start. Everything was so stress-free. Our engagement session was so fun and the pictures came out beautifully. During the wedding, Lauren was so laid back but efficiently got us all together for photos. We already have the images from our wedding, and they are beautiful! I would highly recommend Lauren. She was so professional and she is just an amazing and nice person. I couldn’t be happier with the photos! Thanks, Lauren!
June 2012 Cynthia (Mother of the Bride) – When we began planning our daughter’s wedding 18 months ago, the first vendor that we scheduled, after the venue, was Person + Killian. After viewing sample books at several venues, it quickly became clear to us that this was the premier Boston photographer: the quality of photographs and their ability to capture the personalities was outstanding. In working with Jill Person, we were not disappointed. The engagement session included in our package was well worth using, because it provided an opportunity for the bridal couple and Jill to become acquainted and comfortable with each other, and of course yielded some outstanding photos! Jill was thorough in her preparation for the wedding, which translated into her being almost imperceptible during the event itself. She was familiar with both the ceremony and reception venues, and well-prepared to deal, for example, with the fact that our church imposed restrictions on access during the ceremony–all of which meant that she obtained her shots in a manner that did not interfere with the ceremony. She captured the joyous mood of the day through formal and informal photos, and throughout the event. I am amazed at the quality of formal shots taken in a fairly short period of time, for example, prior to the ceremony. When we needed advice, she provided it. When we needed accommodation for family photos of people who were not able to arrive pre-ceremony, she did that, too. Somehow, Jill and her assistant managed to capture every shot we could have hoped for, and more. The difficulty we will have will be in choosing! What a happy dilemma, because as I read many times, what you have after the wedding (besides a happy bridal couple and, in our case, a terrific son-in-law!) are the photographs and the memories. I am very happy that we invested our resources in such quality photography, which was well worth the expense.
May 2012 Rachael – Jill was absolutely fantastic to work with. She captured all of the special moments during our wedding day. She worked well with our videographer, even though she hadn’t worked with him previously. Our wedding day was of course overwhelming and she did a great job of giving us space to just breathe and relax when she saw we were getting overwhelmed. She sent us our images in a remarkably short time given that the end of May was the start of their busy season. We haven’t yet put together our album, but I’m sure the outstanding quality of her work will extend to that as well. Jill is a true professional and we would recommend her to anyone that wants to work with the best.
May 2012- Stephanie and Richie Ferarri- Working with Person & Killian was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. The very first day I met Lauren, I knew that I wanted to work with her. Not only was she perfectly professional, but she was also extremely cool and fun to be around. She also had great recommendations for other wedding vendors (like Boston Wedding Films) which ended up being great advice. It’s important for a photographer to “get you” when you’re planning your wedding photos. Person & Killian will make your day that much more special and will in fact take away from any stress you may feel the day of and leading up to the wedding. Lauren, thank you SO much for such beautiful photos and for being so wonderful to work with. It was our pleasure getting to know you and we were glad that you could be there to share our special day! And for all you brides out there looking for a photographer, I’d say you just found one. Good luck!
May 2012 Michelle and Eric Dinenberg – I was lucky enough to have both Lauren and Jill at my wedding and they did an amazing job! I cannot say enough about our experience with them and everyone is obsessed with our pictures. The day of the wedding, Jill and Lauren kept me at ease and both were so discreet we barely knew they were there. They were able to capture every important moment as well as plenty of amazing candids! Both are extremely talented and a lot of fun to work with! Lauren sent us our CDs of our pictures the week after our wedding. Needless to say, the photographs came out wonderful and exceeded our expectations. I cannot wait to get my wedding album and I would most definitely recommend Person and Killian to every bride I know!
April 2012- Bettina and John Janco- Lauren, The photos are fabulous… thank you so much! You are so incredibly talented and thank you again for making the shoot so fun, relaxing, and enjoyable. Thank you x100!
March 2012 – Melissa and John Fitzgerald- If you want the BEST of the BEST for your photographer, you must use Person + Killian! My husband and I were a bit anxious as we both “don’t take great pictures.” But when we saw the proofs when we were on our honeymoon (YES, they are that quick!) we couldn’t believe how gorgeous they came out! I literally said, “I don’t believe that is me — I didn’t think I could look so good!” While Lauren and Jill work quickly, the photographs looked like we posed for hours — they were truly perfection! To sum up our experience — almost everyone has said, your pictures look like they should be in a bridal magazine…and add that they were so much fun to work with! We will be forever grateful to P+K for the memories they captured!
Jan 2012 – Lauren and Chris Hansen- Lauren + Jill, Thank you so very much for making our wedding and wedding pictures so amazing! Our entire family felt so extremely comfortable and loved you. Your work is unbelievable. I’m not sure how you made us all look so beautiful! Thank you!! – L + C

I feel so fortunate to have my own!! Words cannot adequately express how exquisite your work is… Thank you for making our relationship so easy and pleasurable.
December 2011 – Kathie (Mother of the Bride) – Lauren + Jill — Much gratefulness! Probably not a word but if you could see me, you would see a happy grateful dancing person. Thank you for the beautiful pictures of my children.
December 2011 – Lauren- If you could give a 10 out of 5 stars I would for Jill and Lauren. They are amazingly talented, very fun to work with and lovely.

November 2011 Christina and Ben Bruneau- I highly recommend Person & Killian Photography! They are not only extremely professional but incredibly talented.

I feel we chose the absolute best for our special day!
November 2011 – Bethany and Scott – Lauren, we can not thank you enough for your generosity and thoughtfulness. You have such a big heart and we could not be more thankful! The photos are absolutely amazing and we have received so many comments. The way you just blend in with the crowd is perfect. Love always, Bethany and Scott.
November 2011 – Jeff and Joann (Parents of the Bride) – I just can’t express enough positive thoughts to Lauren Killian for the beautiful job she did for my daughter’s wedding. From the moment Lauren stepped inside our home we all felt so comfortable with her. She captured so many photos that we didn’t even realize she was taking until we saw them after. Every moment was captured. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything!
Oct 2011 – Christie Stern – I feel truly lucky to have met Lauren Killian and to have had the pleasure of having her photograph my wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel Boston. Lauren surpassed even my highest expectations. She was invisible, quick, professional, adorable, and captured the most intimate and spectacular moments of my wedding that I would not have otherwise remembered. I recommend Person + Killian highly and feel so fortunate to have such exquisite memories from such a magical day.
September 2011 – Katie Cole – I have had the pleasure of knowing Lauren and Jill for years, but my wedding was the first time I had the honor of working with them. The photos Lauren took of my wedding were absolutely incredible. She captured every moment of the evening! The photos were unique, creative, and extremely professional. I highly recommend Person + Killian for any event. Not only are they two of the kindest women I know, their work is absolutely amazing!
Nov 2011 – Loraine Evans- The photos are beautiful. The one thing I will always remember about this memorable day is my daughter stating “Mom I would never have changed a thing, everything was perfect”. You have captured all the elements of that perfect day. Thank you so much. – Mother of the Bride

Oct 2011 – Joanne Symes- Dear Lauren!

We cannot possibly thank you enough for capturing the most incredible moments from the wedding and we never once felt that you were intruding in any way!!!

Thank you for finding the cutest spots around Back Bay and for spending so much time with us. We are SO impressed!! Best, Christie
July 2011 – Andrea and Adam- My husband and I cannot recommend Person + Killian highly enough! Jill coordinated formal shots efficiently so we could focus our attention on guests and enjoying the day. When we showed people our engagement shots, they commented that they looked as if they came from a magazine. Person + Killian are extremely talented, responsive and professional, and best of all, fun and easy-going…a perfect combination for such an important moment in your life.
April 2011 – Rhonda (Mother of the Bride)- Jill- Just wanted to let you know Stan and I LOVED our album!!!

March 2011 – Ryan Hoke: Looking at the pictures not only tells the story of the day start to finish but puts a smile on my face every time I go to look at them. I couldn’t have asked for better photographers to work with, you went above and beyond what I had envisioned!
Feb 2011 – Jessie Watts Poole- Lauren, I got our album!!! I AM IN LOVE!!!! You did SUCH a wonderful job. It was beautiful and such a testament to our day. I am so glad we will have this forever. I love it! THANK YOU THANK YOU!
October 2010 – Tiffany and Brett- The pictures are amazing! I do look at your blog every Monday and I checked it quite frequently while I was honeymooning last week just to make sure I didn’t miss anything. You get a sense from looking at the pictures each week just how great of photographers both you and Jill. They are always so beautiful! You capture the emotion; it’s not just a photo. But when they are actually your photos, it’s a whole new level!! I could bullet certain items of the wedding that I was really looking forward to and seeing these photos was one of the top! Thank you again, we can’t wait to see the rest of them when we get the disk (I saw that you said it will be in the mail). I don’t think there are any words left to describe how happy we are with them, so I’ll just say thank you again!! Now I’m excited for the album!! XoXo
(Another review from Tiffany & Brett from the wedding website Wedding Wire)- Person & Killian Photography was by far one of the best decisions if not the best decision I made in planning my wedding! I was engaged and married in less than seven months which didn’t exactly leave a ton of time to plan but I knew what I wanted. I knew that I wanted a photographer that didn’t just take a bunch of random pictures of the day, I wanted a photographer to take pictures that captured the warmth and emotion of that we were feeling. When the day was done, which lets face it… it goes by in a blink of an eye your left with nothing but memories and the pictures! Lauren and Jill at Person & Killian Photography capture the the most important moments effortlessly and beautifully! The candid moments they capture you wouldn’t even know they were there to the staged moments that still seem so natural. Every cent spent on Person & Killian will be beyond worth it when you see your proofs! Their albums are works of art, like nothing I have ever seen. The packages that they offer are amazing to boot. If you choose Person & Killian for you wedding photography you will not be disappointed but will surely have amazing memories to share with your family for the rest of your life! Thank you so much Lauren, I look forward to working with you again
Sept 2010 – Katherine Boles- Jill, I’m crying a little! You are an amazing photographer and person!!!!!!! Thank you so much for sharing this with us. We love the photos of our day, you are so talented.Thank you again! Katherine
Sept 2010 – Laura and Bob- Hi Lauren, All we can say is UNBELIEVABLE!!!! Not only did Bob and I get to sit down and check out your blog, which was incredible, but we were also just able to go through CD of images you sent and they ARE SOOO FANTASTIC! You did such an amazing job we cannot thank you enough! We both cozied up with a glass of wine to go through the CD and found ourselves, laughing, crying, high-fiving… it’s like we just got married all over again. Warm regards, Laura & Bob xxoo
Sept 2010 – Regina and John- Hi Jill,We received the CD with the photos! They came out so beautifully and they really capture the spirit and fun of the day.

Seeing the blogs is helping me battle some of the post-wedding blues.You are incredibly talented, and we are so happy to have found you. We got the photos in the mail yesterday, and can’t wait to sit down and look at them all!
August 2010 – Julie and Phil- Jill Person photographed our wedding two weeks ago and was phenomenal! She is incredibly talented and professional, while her personality made her a pleasure to work with.

August 2010 – Julie and Brian- Dear Lauren, I absolutely love the pictures on your blog! The sneak Peek brought tears to my eyes and I relived the wonderful feelings of that day. We all enjoyed working with you and I cannot wait to receive the disk.

Julies Mom – So excited for Julie and Brian to come back from Aruba on Saturday so we can look at the pictures together.

July 2010 – Annie and Jonathan- Lauren these are just so amazing! I could not be happier with the amazing work you did at our wedding. You truly captured every moment and then some.

June 2010 – Mia and Torin Francis- Jill was amazing to work with. Wasn’t in the way at all but made sure to ask which details and people I wanted photographed and let me know she was there to capture whatever I wanted. Even though I barely told her anything she somehow captured every detail and tons of special and hilarious moments. There were times when I witnessed something funny and wished it was being photographed and then turned around and there they were snapping away, it was great. The pictures came out beautifully, stunning actually, and everyone agrees. I haven’t gotten my album yet but I can’t wait!
May 2010 – Elizabeth and Jonah- Lauren, Jonah and I couldn’t be more thrilled. You somehow captured the beauty and joy of the day so perfectly. I could not have dreamed of more gorgeous and spectacular photographs. We are so excited!! Best, Elizabeth
May 2010 – Brooke and Matt- Lauren was fantastic! The pictures she and her assistant took are absolutely stunning and really capture the feelings of the day. They were so friendly and good at putting everyone at ease. I would choose Person & Killian every time!
April 2010 – Colleen and Matthew- Dear Lauren and Jill, I wanted to thank you both from the bottom of my heart for capturing our wedding day so beautifully. I was thrilled that Lauren would be photographing our big day and when I learned that Jill would also be there, I truly felt like the luckiest Bride in Boston! When I first started wedding planning, I knew one of the most important things was to hire an amazing photographer. I wanted to make sure someone would be able to capture how happy I was to be marrying Matthew as well as the love we have for each other and our dear friends and family. Thank you both for being able to do just that and more! Matthew and I felt so comfortable working with you throughout the engagement session and wedding day. Even when it was chaotic at times, you never missed a beat! Thanks for always putting us at ease and being so fun and easy to work with. You definitely helped to calm our nerves and eliminate some wedding stress. We were also amazed at how quickly you posted the fabulous blog photos and sent the wedding CD. It was so exciting to send our friends and family a little sneak peek while we were on our honeymoon! Everyone who saw the blog has been raving about the images. We apologize that it has taken us so long to select our photos (sorry!), but it was so hard to choose. They were all fantastic! You caught every special moment and detail of the day. We will certainly cherish those memories through your images forever.I think I made a fabulous decision to marry Matthew and hiring P+K was another great choice! You ladies are the best and I wish you nothing but happiness and continued success! Thank you again for everything and enjoy the summer. Fondly, Colleen
July 10 – 2009 Laurie and Dave- Hi Lauren, The album looks gorgeous! I love how you put it all together in such a beautiful and artistic way. We’ve already looked through it several times and are having such a fun time remembering and reliving all of the details of the wedding. You have truly captured the story of “our” day and we will treasure the album forever.
Heather and Nick- Fall 2009- The album arrived last night and of course we absolutely LOVE it!!!! It looks so much nicer than we even expected…. truly a work of art that we will cherish forever. We also love that it’s kind of minimalist…. not too many pictures that our friends and family will be overwhelmed if we make them sit through it.Thank you so much!!!! You and Jill are really so amazingly talented! Heather
Meghan and Chris Summer 2009- (From Chris) I wanted extend our deepest thanks and gratitude for doing such an INCREDIBLE job with the wedding photos!!! Just the few that are posted on the blog are absolutely above and beyond anything we ever imagined. Meghan and I are so excited to see the rest. We are absolutely obsessed with the work you’ve done and we are both so incredibly happy we picked you to work with (all the credit goes to Meghan by the way). You two are awesome, and our day would not have been the same without you there. We lucked out with the rain but the cloudy day made the pictures look even better than we ever thought possible. You would not believe the comments we’ve received from family and friends that have checked out the blog. It’s just incredible. We were also very surprised to even see some of the photos posted so quickly. So thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
(From Meghan) Oh. My. God. I don’t even know what to say. These pictures are the most beautiful things I have EVER seen!!! I hardly even recognize those people – I can’t believe they’re US!!! Lauren, you and Jill were fantastic. I can’t express how much we appreciate you tolerating the wind and cold to get these incredible shots, I know it wasn’t easy. We sent the link to tons of friends and family and people are just dying at how amazing they are. Thank you again a million times over, you have already exceeded my expectations in every possible way.
Summer 2009 Mary and Barrett- Lauren, I am incredibly embarrassed that it has taken us so long to make the decision on what photos to include in our album, and I apologize for any inconvenience it has caused you. I will say though, it is only further testament to your skill, as choosing proved to be an incredibly difficult task since all the photos were great. We had set the bar very high for what we were hoping to get in our photos, and you certainly cleared the bar with room to spare – I would recommend you as the best to anyone looking to have top-quality event photography, hands down! – Barrett
More from Mary and Barrett!- Top quality photographer who understands the dynamics of the day, and works with the couple to get the great shots while blending into the background. Calm, cool, and collected at all times, easy-going, and extremely flexible. Helped keep things on track, keep the couple relaxed, accepted changes in plans without hesitation and best of all, allowed the couple to focus on other things – never once did we have to worry about the quality of the pictures or final outcome. Best photographer I have worked with hands down. Would recommend to anyone! Worth every penny!
Sept 2009 – Maria and Brian – Jill and Lauren are absolutely amazing!!!! They were so wonderful to work with. They provide so much guidance and support leading up to the wedding and most importantly the day of. Our family and friends have raved about the level of service and professionalism the day of the wedding and are blown away by the pictures that they have seen. Some of our guests have even said that they will definitely be using Person and Killian when they get married since they were so impressed. We couldn’t be happier with the pictures from our wedding day. We loved every one of them! They captured every special moment and the pictures really do tell the story of our day. One we will always treasure! Thank you Jill and Lauren!!!
May 2009 – Neda and Stephen – After booking our venue we asked our wedding coordinator for a photographer recommendation. Person + Killian was their first choice and it quickly became ours. We didn’t even shop around after seeing their past work and meeting with Lauren. The work was magnificent and it was an absolute pleasure working with them from the beginning when taking our engagement photos to the end when we finalized our stunning wedding album! We will cherish the photos for the rest of our lives. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Dec 2009 – Jen and Steven- On a recommendation from a friend, I called to set up an appointment with P&K and ended up hiring Lauren to be our wedding photographer. I loved her from the minute I met her. She totally understood the vibe and feel we wanted to see in our wedding photos (celebratory, intimate, fun and lots of personality!). We recently got our album and my husband and I absolutely love the photographs. After seeing all of the photos, I’d say their specialty is definitely candids. They caught some moments that we never even saw and we were standing right in front of them! They both have a great eye for the so-called “Kodak moment”. I would hire Lauren and/or Jill again in a heartbeat. The cost was a little more than others I looked at. But in the end, they were well worth every penny!
Nov 14th – 2009 Kate and Matt- We couldn’t recommend Person + Killian more highly! We had a few unforeseen obstacles on our wedding day (torrential rain and an uncooperative limo driver, to name a few!) and Lauren Killian couldn’t have been more accommodating and supportive. Not only was she a pleasure to work with, but the final product was more than we ever could have asked for! Worth every penny.
Nov 2009 – Elissa and Jeff- Person + Killian embodied all of the provided categories (Quality of Service, Responsiveness, Professionalism, Value for Cost, and Flexibility), and more. Jill was so personable and friendly, and we were instantly drawn to her calm and collected demeanor. Our engagement photo shoot was a great time – we were even able to bring our dog on the shoot with us! During the wedding preparation, first look at my now husband after getting ready, Ketubah signing, ceremony, cocktail reception, and wedding reception (speeches, first dance, cutting the cake, etc.) she took pictures seamlessly – we had no idea she was even there taking pictures. The photos came out beautifully and they were only a taste of what was yet to come. We just received the wedding album and were floored with how amazing it came out – the album itself is impressive, and the photos and layout are stunning. I have looked through it more times than I can count since receiving it! We appreciated so much her working with all the photos (hundreds of them) to make the album a story, with all of the different components of the wedding, as she captured every moment. P+K may even add a few pleasant (complimentary) surprises along the wayI can’t wait to show a cousin we referred to Person + Killian for her wedding photos what she has to look forward to. It was so worth every moment and penny! We can’t thank Jill and Person + Killian enough, they really are the best of the best!
October 2009 – Jessie and Mike- I can’t express enough how much I love Person + Killian. If they are on your list of photographers to pick from I wouldn’t search any further– you will be making the right choice! Here are my thoughts on everything from pre-wedding, the day of, and after… Deciding on a Photographer- When I met with Lauren I just knew we clicked. I really enjoyed her perspective and I thought her take on photography was refreshing. She took beautiful shots and it wasn’t “posed” or too cliché. She and also Jill really capture people in their element. I loved that about Person + Killian – they captured raw moments that struck a chord with me. After the meeting I knew we would go with them. On a side note: What I loved about them is you have a copy of your high res. pictures after the wedding. Not many photographers offer that. It was great to be able to have all your pictures at your fingertips! Before the Wedding- What sets Person + Killian apart is their beautiful pictures, their great attitudes, calm demeanor the day of and most importantly, their connection with their clients. Lauren was so easy to communicate with. She was quick with her responses and really shared in my excitement about our wedding – which any bride knows is a nice feeling when someone is excited as you are! Before the wedding they did a great job figuring out what I wanted on my day. They sent out a form to review everything I wanted and how I imagined our day would be. We even spoke by phone the week before the wedding to sort out the details. I felt so confident in their work I knew I could let Lauren take the lead the day of the wedding.Day Of- When Lauren arrived it was pure chaos having 9 bridesmaids and everyone getting ready. She just fit in perfectly and went about getting ready, taking shots — she just blended in! From the moment she arrived all the bridal party felt at ease with her. We all were able to be ourselves and that was reflected in our pictures. Having a very large bridal party (9 BMs, 8 GMs) Lauren was able to take control of all of us to get great shots. She was never bossy — she really gave great tips and kept everyone engaged and laughing. She had a calmness about her that made taking the pictures a fun time instead of a chore to be over quickly. We all loved how she could laugh with us and joke back and forth. She helped us relax and made our experience memorable. Lauren was with us from start to finish and the entire day she was upbeat and fun to be around. She always had a smile on her face and was so approachable. Many guests commented on how wonderful she was. We couldn’t have been happier. After the wedding – Their turnaround time is AMAZING! When I was back from our honeymoon we had a CD in our mail! We fell in love with all of our pictures. Lauren was able to capture our day and was able to capture who we are as a couple. I loved Lauren’s take and she provided stunning images that we will cherish forever. She captures such great moments between my husband and I and our entire family. I loved all the pictures and she has made it VERY hard to pick out what ones we like best – we loved everything! I also have to note that they literally got around to EVERYONE at the wedding! And that’s all our families can keep talking about – there is a picture of practically everyone from the wedding. They have been amazing communicating back and forth. I am so excited to see their take on our wedding album and see them put it all together. We get to pick our pictures but then they do the rest! And from the looks of other albums it will be stunning!! I have seen first hand what stunning work they do and can’t wait for our album to be complete. Bottom Line: Lauren and Jill are warm, welcoming, professional and best of all – amazing photographers with a true gift. I wouldn’t have done anything different with them. You are in amazing, capable hands if you are lucky enough to work with them. I can’t even say enough good things about them. We will be using them for family portraits down the line!
(Jessie’s Mom)- Dear Lauren, I just saw the CD of the pictures from Jessie and Mike’s wedding and they are incredible. You did an absolutely wonderful job. I cannot believe how many people you got great pictures of, how many interesting, awesome shots you got from the large group shots to the intimate couple shots to close-ups of things like my youngest daughter and I holding hands, when Jessie put her gown on, to capturing the Boston scenery (the Hotel, Cheers, the scenery from the State Room), to everything in the room (and so many of the things I had not even noticed as I was too busy smiling at Jessie and Mike). Your coverage of the event was phenomenal, your “eye” for capturing special images and moments was unbelievable, and the quality of all your photos was way beyond my expectations and hopes (which were high!!). Thank you for putting so much of your heart into this, capturing the emotion and the fun of it all. I loved the picture of you and the bride and groom at the end. If you ever need a reference, please feel free to call on us. With much appreciation, Laurie (Mother of the bride)
October 2009 – Dominique and Ryan- Jill Person totally saved my life! My husband and I had a very bad experience with a photographer that we ended up firing 3 weeks before the wedding. Understandably we were stressed and worried that a) we wouldn’t find another photographer in time or b) we would find a photographer but might not be happy with them either. Well, Jill Person came along, being recommended to us by our on-site coordinator at the Liberty Hotel. Jill responded to my email right away and we made plans to talk later in the day. We had a wonderful conversation and I immediately felt at ease. We booked an in-person appointment and my husband and I met with her a day or two later. Our appointment went so well we hired her on the spot! We could not have been happier with Jill. She was a true professional and a true pleasure to work with. Her photos are stunningly beautiful and I am so happy my husband and I were able to snag her.Hire Person + Killian Photography and even if they are slightly pricey, you will get piece of mind and THAT is worth something!
October 2009 – Kara and Matt- Oh, Jill — These are truly spectacular! I posted the link on my FB page and I had 13 emails in 2 minutes, unreal!!! We are so blown away by the photos. I emailed a bunch to my parents and they are already picking which ones they want framed. We can’t thank you enough for capturing the most precious moments of our wedding day. We feel so blessed to have had you as a part of our day.Thank you SO much. We are so in love with your work! All the best, Kara and Matt
May 2009 – Kristen and Mark- We worked with Jill Person for our wedding and couldn’t have been happier with the experience. She made us feel comfortable in front of the camera – not an easy feat! During the wedding, I completely forgot she was in the room, because she was so inconspicuous. And during the reception, they used such large lenses that there were times I would look around thinking “she’s missing it” because she wasn’t right in my face with a camera, but there she was 20 feet away, capturing the whole night! Wonderful!
June 2008 – Yoonjin and Sang- Hello Jill and Lauren, I wanted to just write and commend you guys. Not only do you take the best pictures, but personalities with the pictures are the most important. You guys offer a great service, enjoyable and professional personalities and as a result, Best of Boston photography. Well, please keep up the great work. I’m sure Yoonjin will be referring you guys left and right as our friends go down the path of marriage. Always remembering you guys and this photo. Thank you for capturing the best walk of my life… – Sang
Fall 2008 – Kathleen and Emilio- Lauren and Jill, Thank you, thank you, Thank you! We just got our album today and it couldn’t be more perfect! It seriously took my breath away and I’ve been showing it off obsessively whenever opportunity allows! We knew the moment we decided to get married who our photographers were going to be, and you’ve far exceeded our expectations (and I already knew how amazing you guys were!). It was so reassuring to not have to worry about whether the shots I wanted and the style I wanted was going to be done, because I had 110% confidence in you! It really let me enjoy my day! So again, thank you both so much for all your hard work on both the wedding day and putting the album together! You guys never cease to amaze me with your talent and creativity (and it’s only getting better as time goes on!) Keep up the GREAT work! Love, Emilio and Kathleen
April 2008 – Carol and Ted- Dear Jill and Lauren, Ted and I wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for photographing our wedding and for creating such beautiful memories for us to treasure forever. I am so grateful to have such gorgeous pictures to remind me of that night that seemed to fly by so fast. I knew from the start that I could put all my worries away and that I had hired the best photographers in Boston. It was such a gift to have one less thing to worry about during the planning process. I knew that if everything else fell apart, my pictures would be magnificent! You were somehow able to capture every critical moment of the night and be so inconspicuous at the same time. Just the thought that you were there, memorializing the night put me at ease and let me enjoy myself. Every shot was unbelievably gorgeous. I was especially amazed by your instinctive ability to capture those magical unexpected moments that had occurred throughout the night. I’m not sure how you caught such fleeting moments that captured so much emotion like one of my bridesmaids wiping a tear from her eye during the ceremony, and the adoring glances that Ted and I exchanged throughout the night. You were both such kind and wonderful people to work with. Your smiles put me at such ease that night and your calm and warm personalities made each interaction I had with you leading up the wedding a truly pleasant experience. Thank you also for putting together an exquisite wedding album. Your professionalism and guidance throughout the year and that night helped make what could have been a stressful situation a wonderful experience. I’ll never forget how important you both were to making our wedding a literally perfect night for us. With our sincerest gratitude, Carol and Ted
October 2008 – Doug and Kristin- Working with Lauren and John, our photographers, was an absolute pleasure! We enjoyed every part of working with them! They were so professional and fun, all at the same time! Lauren had told us when we first met with her that they prided themselves on being almost invisible the day of the wedding and she was so right! They were there for every moment but they were never in the way! Our photographs are amazing and we are so happy we chose them for our special day!
July 2008 – Leah and Paul- I had the pleasure of having Jill and Lauren (Person + Killian) photographing my wedding. I was not only impressed by the beauty and artistry of their work, but how friendly, professional, and responsive they were during the entire process. They put me at ease instantly! The variety in their photographs is amazing… one picture is more beautiful than the next. On the day of my wedding Jill and Lauren were so helpful and encouraging. It was a wonderful experience working with them… I would highly recommend Person + Killian Photography to anyone!
July 2008 – Natalie- Person & Killian Photography did a fabulous job with our wedding photos! They captured the beauty of the day & we will have those memories to last us for a lifetime. Jill & Lauren were very professional & an absolute pleasure to work with. If you can snag them for your wedding date, you are lucky!
Summer 2008 – Matt and Kate- Lauren,We can’t begin to thank you for everything you did to make our wedding so perfect. We absolutely LOVE our wedding album – it’s perfect. I don’t know how you do it, but you managed to capture everything we loved about the day – and some things we didn’t even realize were going on! I know you must hear it all the time, but you really are excellent at what you do. We’ve attended (and been in) a lot of weddings and we may be biased, but you’re the best photographer we’ve come across! Thank you again for everything – we wish you all the best and hope that we can work together again in the future! Love, Matt and Kate
October 2007 – Elizabeth and Ryan- From our first meeting right down to when we received our album Person + Killian was professional and attentive. We could not have hoped for more…our photos are amazing! Everything they do is of such high quality – from the engagement photos, wedding and parent albums and even the thank you notes they offer. I very highly recommend them.
August 2007 – Steve and Shayna- Person and Killian are FANTASTIC! We had the opportunity to work with Jill Person and from our very first meeting with her we felt welcomed and comfortable. She impressed us with her artistic eye, journalistic style, and ability to capture the moment. On our wedding day she was prompt, organized and relaxed. She immediately put us, and our guests, completely at ease and listened closely to our photo requests. She didn’t force the formal shots and even when we were “posing” she let things come naturally into view. She floated in and out of our ceremony and reception almost invisibly and took beautiful pictures without anyone noticing.The other night, as soon as we returned from our honeymoon, we received a CD with all of our photos. Each shot was better than the next. Our photos are truly amazing and now the challenge is to select our favorites for our family and friends to view online and for our wedding album. This is proving to be very difficult as there are simply too many good ones to chose from. We thank Jill for all of her hard work and would highly recommend the Person and Killian team to anybody looking to capture their special day. After all, the wedding lasts but a few short hours, but the pictures last forever. We feel truly blessed to have such great photo memories. Steve and Shayna
Sept 2007 – Conor and Marisa- Dear Person and Killian Photography, Living in Boston, we certainly have a plethora of wedding vendors to choose from. So when I was given the advice to narrow down my photographer choice based on “someone I felt I could have lunch with,” in addition to wonderful talent, I was easily able to make my decision. And I was not disappointed. Lauren’s combination of professionalism, kindness, and creativity is so unique in any person—let alone in a photographer capturing one of the most important days of your life! From the second Lauren arrived at my bridal suite, I felt lucky to have her as part of my special day. She quietly took pictures from the “sidelines” without getting in anyone’s way despite a cramped bridal suite room. Furthermore, she continued at the reception to stay “hidden.” I only remember capturing a glimpse of her once, yet she seemed to capture more than just a glimpse in return. Through all of her photos, we were able to relive our wedding day seamlessly. There must have been a secret hiding place in the ballroom that gave her the ability to see everything memorable that was occurring! As we looked at our pictures, Conor and I said to each other that we thought maybe she somehow knew who was special to us—knowing that, of course, that was not true—rather that she had the social skills to realize it on her own. Not only did Lauren have an amazingly uncanny ability to capture important people, but she was able to capture them in their truest, most realistic moments. We cannot count on one hand the number of times Conor and I said to each other, “that’s the face my sister always makes” or “that’s the admiring look you always give me” or “that’s exactly how I think of my mom when she’s happy.” The fact that she captured these moments and facial expressions in perfect candids brought tears to our eyes as we looked at the photos.Thank you, Lauren, for making our day so special and memorable. I want to get married all over again for many reasons—working with you again being one of them! Sincerely, Conor and Marisa
November 2006 – Vicki and Chris- Dear Jill and Lauren,I’ve wanted to marry Chris for such a long time that I thought for sure I would be a blubbering mess on our wedding day. But, while everyone around me went through varying degrees of hysteria, I was happy and dry-eyed. In a way, I was a little let down that I wasn’t weeping with joy that day the way I had expected that I would. I wasn’t even struggling to fight back tears. I was happy and having a great time, and for some reason, that bothered me a little. But I started going through the pictures for the second time today, iTunes was playing some sentimental music in the background, and I was startled to discover that tears were streaming down my face. And they haven’t stopped. I’ve been weeping uncontrollably for the past hour or so looking at the pictures. It is as if the day suddenly caught up with me and I’ve only now realized how beautiful my wedding day was and how much it means that Chris and I are actually married. I’m looking at the special moments you captured so beautifully and it’s like I’m looking at a movie that I wish I were in – then remember I was! It’s about all of the dreams I had as a little girl about my wedding day, and all of the years as an adult when I never though it would happen for me — and there it all is. And I can’t stop crying. I guess some of us have delayed reactions. Thank you for giving me my wedding day all over again. -Vicki
November 2006 – Stephanie and Jason- Lauren & Jill were a pleasure to work with through the entire wedding process. They were unobtrusive and did an incredible job. Our photo CD was waiting for us when we got home from our honeymoon and we watched it that night. I loved the pictures and they even air brushed a few things for us when they did the album. I highly recommend them as photographers.
