Oscar-winning actor Forest Whitaker joined Hillary Clinton in Boston last week as the Democratic presidential hopeful returned to the city for a fundraiser. Person + Killian Photography was thrilled to be there to document this evening. The event, titled “Evening with Hillary and Forest Whitaker, Academy Award Winning Actor and Social Activist,” was held at one of our favorite venues, The State Room. Whitaker is a women’s rights and social justice advocate known for his Academy Award-winning turn in The Last King of Scotland, among many other roles. The former first lady, senator and secretary of state was greeted at The State Room with a warm welcome. The fundraiser was filled with many prominent figures such as Michael Capuano, Ed Markey and Mayor Walsh! Not to mention hundreds of Clinton supporters. Congratulations to Hillary Clinton and The State Room Boston on such a successful evening. A big thank you to the entire Longwood events staff for having us there to be a part of this evening with them.

Last week Person + Killian Photography had the pleasure of photographing Governor Deval Patrick’s Inaugural Celebration thanks to The Catered Affair.

The night was a buzz and The Catered Affair at the Boston Public Library along with the talented Michael Wasserman pulled out all the stops. Each room of the Boston Public library was decked out and filled with delicious food. Below are just a few of our favorite photos from this special celebration.

It’s not often that Person + Killian Photography gets hired to do event photography for rock stars! So, when we got a call last week from a high-end event company out of Pennsylvania we were of course thrilled!

To be able to meet, document and “hang” with Rob Thomas, was amazing! The best part was being able incorporate our signature P+K style into concert photography! The space was very modern and futuristic, with colorful orange and green lighting, black hourglass cocktail tables, a giant screen with a projection of the Earth in space, and a disco ball to add some sparkle!

Below are a few photographs that we can share from this event. We feel blessed to have the opportunities to meet and work with so many talented professionals.

A recent shopping trip to Chestnut Hill’s Bloomingdale’s Home Store, reminded Person + Killian Photography of a fantastic Boston event they had the pleasure of photographing in the fall.

The “Pre-Wedding” Wedding Party with Darcy Miller, an editor at Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine, was co-sponsored by Southern New England Weddings and the Boston Wedding Group. The evening was certainly a success and a lot of fun to Photograph! The Room was filled with the talented work of event décor and floral designer Dana Markos, who created beautiful table design ideas for all seasons and styles.

Person and Killian Kleinfeld Fashion Show

Recently we worked on the Kleinfeld bridal fashion show that was held at Bloomingdale’s in Chestnut Hill. This event was sponsored by Southern New England Weddings, one of our absolute favorite wedding magazines and of course Kleinfeld’s. Kleinfeld’s is a world class bridal atelier and has appeared in ‘s “Say Yes to the Dress”. The fashion that they presented ranged from short and flirty to amazingly romantic. Each one of the stunning models was a thrill to catch with our cameras.  In case you missed the show, or want to relive the expierence play our video slide show.

Person + Killian love an event!  We love it even more when we are lucky enough to get back stage and hang with the talent!  When the Beach Boys came to Wellesley for a late summer concert it was a photo safari for Person+Killian.  With a New England winter on the horizon the crowd took full advantage of the music that few can resist.  The dancing, the singing, the screaming – gave us plenty of photos full of a joyful crowd.


Shayna Seymour Carr is a reporter and producer of WCVB-TV;s award winning nightly newsmagazine and Boston favorite, Chronicle.

It is always Person + Killian’s objective to capture the joy within the bride and groom.  Unlike some brides Shayna is accustomed to being photographed and facing cameras, we wanted insure her images captured the spontaneous side to the couple.  In this moment we witness a private playful moment.

Breaking News – TMZ, the show that is infamous for stalking celebrities and airing the dirty laundry – featured Person + Killian’s website on the show. TMZ mistook Lauren Killian, Boston Photographer for Patriot Quarterback, Matt Cassels wife, who has the same name.

Although being married to an NFL starter would have a few perks, our Lauren Killian certainly wouldn’t trade her own hottie husband for the opportunity! The upside, once the story broke and our website was featured on national TV, our phones were ringing off the hook. Watch the footage!
