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)
“You know the expression, “you get what you pay for”? This couldn’t be more true than with Person/Killian – from booking, to planning, to the day of the event, they are amazing. Besides taking amazingly beautiful photographs, both Jill and Lauren are “the absolute” best to work with. They are flexible, attentive, and really know how to read a client. They’re never too “in your face”, like so many other photographers can be. I most appreciate their partnership on “wedding day”. On “wedding day”, the way I operate, is we’re all “worker bees” trying to make the entire event a complete success, and the ladies at Person/Killian, couldn’t embody this philosophy more. Recently, Lauren just offered to ring me from the church when a ceremony concluded, so I could have staff waiting the newlyweds arrival to the hotel. Nobody else does that. I looooooooooooove them!!! – Philip Deschamps – Assistant Director of Catering – Four Seasons Hotel Boston
“It’s always an absolute pleasure working with Jill & Lauren for social and corporate functions. Their work and professionalism is luxurious and they shine brightly. You can count on Person & Killian to produce great quality work!” – Jessica Jordan, PBC – Catering Sales Manager – Mandarin Oriental Hotel Boston
“The rave reviews that follow Person + Killian’s work could not be more accurate. They have amazing talent and sparkling personalities which really comes through in the work they do! 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
“Jill and Laurén are amazing photographers, they are an event planners dream team–to be more specific, my dream team! Not only are they super talented photographer and capture moments you didn’t even know were happening but they are an absolute joy to work with, from planning to the day of. They are fun to have at your event, never in the way but always there–that in itself is a unique talent. I could go on and on about how fabulous Person + Killian are-they have joined me on adventures from New York to Hawaii–they are the best!!” – Amy Kimball, Owner – Amy Kimball Events
“We are always looking for new and exciting vendors to offer our clients, so when Person and Killian opened their business 9 years ago, my colleagues and I were thrilled! They have continued to delight my Hopple Popple colleagues and me in so many ways. They are extremely skilled as photographers. They have great photojournalistic style coupled with a keen eye for detail and a knack for capturing the perfect pose at just the right time, and always with a smile! Jill and Lauren are a pleasure to work with. They are well organized and pro-active in scouting out rain/shine locations. Having read the specifics and asked the questions prior to the event, they come prepared to shoot!” – Linda Matzkin – Owner of Hopple Popple
“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. Jill and Laurén are amazing. They are extremely professional, unobtrusive and talented. They go beyond just capturing the day
in pictures, but they capture the emotions and bring you back to the particular point in the day.”
– Tasha Bracken Owner, SD Events

It’s so important to have a partner that has the same standard for service & excellence that you do. They are professional, efficient and amazing photographers. When you look at their work, you feel like you are there in the moment; they capture the beauty, emotion, and spirit all at once – it’s magic. “– Carrie Campbell, Director of Sales Boston Red Sox

Love Notes from our Clients…
August 2017 – Chloe and Jeff Menard – Jill, Thank you so much! The pictures are absolutely beautiful and we feel so lucky that we had you to capture our special day! We are seriously so impressed. Thanks again for everything. We will definitely recommend Person + Killian to all of our friends!
August 2017 – Caitlin Callaghan and Dave Kell – Dear Jill, Thank you for shooting our wedding earlier this month. The photographs came out AMAZING. We can not believe what great moments you captured and are so pleased. We are grateful you were willing to shoot all our special shots as well as the groups. While that often can be difficult, you made it look easy! We are so impressed that you got a good shot of all our wedding guests. Your relaxed and positive energy was also a blessing and we are so thrilled with the results!
Parents of the bride Gretchen and Pat Callaghan – Dear Jill, Thank you so much for the fantastic job you did photographing Caitlin and Dave’s wedding on August 5th. The pictures are gorgeous!! We really appreciate your ability to be there for all the important moments without the feeling of intrusion. Thanks again!
July 2017 – Amanda – Lauren and Jill, This is so overwhelming I can’t slow myself down to even really look at them!!! They are so beautiful! I haven’t stopped smiling!!! Thank you!
June 2017 – Brittany and Bryan Dunn – Hi Jill, WOW! Thank you so much for capturing our day. We are so happy with all of our photos! They are absolutely beautiful. Thank you again for everything. It was an absolutely perfect day!
June 2017 – Liz and Mike DiCicco – We are so grateful to Lauren Killian and her assistant for capturing our wedding day so beautifully. Lauren is a consummate professional – conscientious, precise, creative – and a lovely person. She folded right into our group when she arrived for “getting ready” photos and was a true pleasure to spend the day with. Lauren shepherded our families through formal photos with warmth and efficiency. And, when unexpected wind and a crowded beach made our original “first look” location less than ideal at the very last minute, she expertly navigated the hotel grounds to find a new setting – which ended up being even better than the beach! Lauren turned our photos around very quickly. In sharing them with our family and friends many remarked at how extraordinary it was that she was able to capture so many special moments, candid glances, and subtle emotions. Lauren has remarkable emotional intelligence. Previous to our wedding day I had met her only once, but I felt in sync with her and well taken care of the entire day. Both of our families loved her and said again and again how wonderful she was. We have no shortage of glowing things to say about Person & Killian, and highly recommend them!
May 2017 – Shikha Goel – Hi Jill, I love the photos so much!! You really made the whole wedding feel so special to us. We’re going to treasure these forever. Thank you so much!
May 2017 – Alanna and Lyle – I am so happy that Lauren was there to capture our wedding. Not only are the photos gorgeous, but she was such a calming presence and helped keep us on schedule while still being relaxed. We loved working with her, and highly recommend working with Person + Killian!
May 2017 – Samantha Saperstein – Hi Jill, I can’t even get through them all without people grabbing my phone from me but OH MY GOD. I have no words. Jill these are amazing. Outstanding. I love them and you!
May 2017 – Elyse Linson – I was very deliberate when booking with Person and Killian but I did not realize just how wonderful a decision it would be. Jill Person and her assistant were relaxed, professional, flexible, so so kind, and so talented. They captured the night the way it felt and the pictures came out more beautiful than I could have imagined. From the bottom of my heart, I would recommend them to anyone. My biggest problem is that now I have too many photos that I absolutely love. I cannot thank them enough for being so spectacular. Anyone would be lucky to have them capture their wedding/event. Thank you Jill and Jon– you guys are a dream. -Elyse
February 2017 – Elana and Pete Nesbit – If you are lucky enough to be able to book Jill, you absolutely should! Jill is so warm, so professional and has so much expertise – we have been thrilled with our photos and cannot say enough good things about working with her. Our wedding pictures are simply gorgeous and we are so happy with how Jill captured our day. One underrated photographer skill is the ability to wrangle a large group of people and get all of the pictures that you want at your wedding. A lot of people warned us about forgetting to ask for specific group pictures, but Jill took care of all of that for us and we never had to think about it on the day of our wedding. Jill and her team were able to direct our families and large wedding party so efficiently and nicely, and they worked seamlessly to make the formal picture time go smoothly. We have so many extra shots from that time and loved that so many candid moments were captured as well. Getting a photographer for our wedding was something I really wanted to be sure I made the right decision about, but I knew right away that Jill would be a good fit. She was just the right person to be with us, and I am so so happy that we went with her!
November 2016- Leah Kesselman & Craig Schlesinger – Lauren, These pictures are absolutely breathtaking! I am speechless they are so so so beautiful!! Thank you again times a million for capturing every special moment. You are brilliant! – Leah

November 2016 -Chris Renfro – Hi Jill, Zach and I wanted to thank you and your team for all of your help this past weekend. Our wedding exceeded all of our expectations thanks to the help from all of our amazing vendors. We had a lot of fun shooting photos all around the city and in the library and can’t wait to see the final products. If the first photo is any indication they are going to be unreal!
November 2016 – Zach Wallace – Jill, the photos are incredible! Thank you for giving us the chance to relive that amazing day again! We can’t wait to do again and again and again! We can’t wait to see them on a bigger screen when we get back from our honeymoon. Thanks again for everything.
November 2016 – Jill and Ben Lewis – We initially met with Jill Person because we has three couples tell us that while they didn’t select Person & Killian, they wished they had. Lucky for us, when we met with Jill, at the end of 2015, she had one wedding date open in 2017 and it happened to be our date. This fact, combined with Jill’s infectious/calming personality and her incredible portfolio made the selection a no-brainer for us. We were thrilled working with Jill. While she’ll happily lead the artistic charge, she’ll also take direction from the couple and help them bring a specific vision to life. She clearly loves what she does and each wedding is so special to her.

Everything from the quick turnaround to way that the pictures are presented to us were beyond perfect! You’re missing out if you don’t use Person + Killian!

August 2016 – Tara Blackman – I can’t say enough great things about Person and Killian! We worked with Jill Person for our August 21, 2016, and she also did our engagement photos.

July 2016 – Michele Ciccarelli – One of the best and easiest decisions I made during my planning process was hiring Person + Killian Photography. As a wedding professional myself I have worked with them on many weddings at various venues, and knew that I would be in the very best of hands. I can say that working with Jill in professional settings as well as now a personal setting has been nothing short of amazing. She put our entire family and bridal party at ease during formal photos as we took these prior to the ceremony when everyone was a little nervous. Any shots that we wanted to do she was game for, but also knew what photo combinations we would need for family photos, etc. If there is any doubt in your mind, I can assure you that these ladies are the way to go!!

May 2015 – Michelle Murtagh – I actually work in the Boston Wedding Industry and get to work with Jill Person on a professional level, quite often. On the professional side, Jill is an absolute dream to work with. Always so positive, pro-active, enthusiastic, on-time, detail oriented and wanting to get the absolute best photographs for her bride and groom. She is truly dedicated to her job, her passion and the individuality of each bride and groom. Getting to be a bride myself this past July, working with Jill on a personal level was everything I knew it would be and more. She is incredibly genuine and takes the time to really get to know the bride and groom and what is important to them on their special day. I knew we would be in great hands! Having Jill there on our special day was not only FUN but she kept everyone organized and on schedule. She captured every detail of our wedding and we could not have asked for more beautiful photographs. We had an absolute wonderful experience with Person&Killian and are so grateful for all of Jill’s hard work, patience, expertise and stunning photographs!

We can not thank you enough we have wonderful pictures from our wedding that will last us a lifetime. I would highly recommend Person + Killian to any bride to be!
September 2014 – Kristin Edgerton – Lauren, Thank you so much for making our wedding day so amazing-people are still talking about you and asking for your information! Every picture is somehow more beautiful than the last! Love, Kristin
September 2014 – Stacylyn Doore -Lauren,These pictures are incredible!!! We love them so much, and they perfectly capture our amazing day! Thank you again for your wonderful work, and please let your assistant know we love his pictures as well! You definitely made us feel comfortable, and it shows in the beautiful pictures! We will go through them and decide on albums (it will be tough to narrow them down!), and will be in touch soon. Thanks again, Stacylyn
September 2014 – Amy + Craig Forleiter – From Amy: Craig and I wanted to thank you for photographing our wedding. We loved having you there and cannot wait to see the final products! In addition to doing beautiful work, your enthusiasm and warmth made the entire process not only easy, but fun! The family and bridal party raved about you. The pictures are beyond amazing. I might get fired from work because all I do is look at them… Can’t wait to order the album, but no idea how we’ll choose the pics! From Craig: Oh my god, they are amazing! I can’t stop looking at them! I got through all of them, and then I realized that was only the HIGHLIGHTS, so I went back and did them ALL! Now it’s 2 hours later and I’ve accomplished NOTHING today! So worth it! We are obsessed with your work, and cannot wait for albums.
September 2014- Jen Strong- Lauren!! Chris and I cannot begin to thank you enough for everything that you have done to capture the most important time and day in our lives! You are not only a phenomenal artist but you are truly such an exceptional person! We are so grateful to know you, and for your gift of these amazing moments that we will forever treasure. Xoxoxo
Jen and Chris
September 2014 – Ilana Sclar- Thank you SO much, Lauren! We absolutely LOVE the pictures and keep looking at them time and time again. Cannot thank you enough for everything you did to make this weekend so special and memorable. It all feels like a blur now, but seeing the pictures proves to me that everything really did happen 😉 Love, Ilana
September 2014 – Pam Weatherbee- Lauren, I just wanted to tell you the wedding photos you took for Mike and Stacylyn are just amazing! I did not even realize you were taking most of those pictures! I don’t know how you do it. Thanks so much for capturing every moment of our special weekend! (Mother of the Groom)
August 2014 – Samantha + Chris Ramonetti – Jill, We truly had an amazing time and couldn’t have asked for more out of the night! You and your assistant did a wonderful job with managing the photo opportunities as well as remaining discreet throughout the evening. We are extremely excited to see all of the pictures and relive the night.
August 2014 – Jamie Filton – Jill, We finally had a chance to look at our wedding album. I laughed, I cried, but mostly I was overwhelmed with happiness that I had my own fairytale come true captured with such gorgeous photography. Some of my earliest memories are of looking at my parents wedding album (which was approximately 30 photos of their 20 person wedding, taken by a friend who considered photography a hobby). I always remember thinking that even though the binding was falling apart, and my mom was neither in a veil, nor a white dress, that it looked like a fairytale wedding…they were young, happy, in love and surrounded by their closest family and friends–what else do you need? I remember hoping that one day, I would meet my “prince charming” and have a similar album to call my own, with my own family and friends, and even thought that like my parents, I too would have a wedding in our backyard… Unfortunately, our backyard didn’t quite fit all of our family and friends, but needless to say, it still turned out to be the wedding I had always hoped for (the Mandarin being a welcome alternative). Thank you for translating our fairytale so beautifully into an album, that it actually looked like a fairytale! Thank you for so awesomely capturing the joy and unbridled enthusiasm (of us, our families and our guests) from the entire day and evening. Thank you for telling a story that I am excited to share with friends today, and look forward to sharing with our future children in the years ahead. You have created a piece of work that will be cherished for a lifetime. All the best, Jamie
August 2014 – Kristin VanArsdale – Lauren, We are en route to France for our honeymoon, but I wanted to take a minute to tell you how thrilled we are to have had the pleasure and privilege to have you as our wedding photographer. You were absolutely AMAZING from start to finish. Not only is the quality of your work and services unparalleled, but you are one of the kindest people that I have met. EVERYONE at our wedding raved about how fabulous you were, and we could not agree more. Words cannot describe our gratitude for everything — we hope you know how much we appreciate your hard work and efforts and cannot wait to see some of the amazing shots!!! Lots of love, Kristin & Rob
August 2014 – Marjie + Steven Horn – Hi Lauren, We LOVE the albums!!! They are so beautiful, and really tell the story of our magical day.Thank you again for everything. It was such a pleasure having you as part of our special day, and we are so thrilled to have such lovely pictures to remember our wedding by! Best, Marjie
July 2014 – Michelle + Brian – Hi Jill, Thank you so so so much for being a part of our wedding! I always LOVE working with you and it was so special to have you there with us on our wedding day! It was very comforting knowing that we were in such great hands and so fun spending the day with you. Just knowing you were there, totally put us at ease!
July 2014 – Jenn + Kevin Neville – Jill, Thank you so much for beautifully capturing our wedding day. The pictures came out absolutely amazing! When Dan (our original photographer) cancelled on us, we were afraid our pictures wouldn’t be as we had hoped, but I know think his cancelling was a blessing in disguise because our pictures are far better than we have ever hoped. Thank you! – Jen and Kevin
July 2014 – Sarah Montgomery – Hi Lauren – We are absolutely speechless and could and not be any HAPPIER! THANK YOU! Sarah
July 2014 – Nicole Addazio – Jill, I just wanted to send a quick note to say a HUGE thank you for the stunning photos of our special day. You are amazing and I’m so grateful you worked with us! I feel like you perfectly captured so many moments of the day, our expressions, personalities and the beautiful ceremony and ballroom. Thank you! It was also fun to get to know you and work with you on a personal level. Your laid-back approach and willingness to work with us from afar was so appreciated! I can’t tell you how many times my mom or I would look at each other and say “I just love Jill! :)” I do hope we stay in touch and our paths cross again in the future! All my best and thank you again so very much! – Nicole
July 2014 – Kris Montgomery ( Mother of the Bride) – Hi Lauren, I cannot stop looking at the absolutely magnificent photos you took of Sarah and Tyler’s wedding. They are magical and capture the location, the people and the events of the day in the most perfect way. Each photo has a softness that I love. But the drop dead, most amazing and artistic frame is the black and white one of Tyler twirling Sarah on the dance floor! I want to cover an entire wall with that photograph. How did you get it so right?! You are dream to work with.
July 2014 – Emily Kachinsky -Lauren, The photos look great! They put a huge smile on my face today. I can’t believe it was over a week ago, I’m still on cloud nine. Thank you so much for all your hard work. Lou and I appreciate your attention to detail and tireless efforts to “get the right shot”. Fondly, Emily
June 2014 – Kristen Selden – Dear Lauren, We are blown away by the beautiful pictures.. thank you so much!!!!

May 2014 – Alexis + Howard Deutsch – Hi Lauren, We wanted to thank you so much for the beautiful wedding album you made for us! You did an outstanding job putting it together – it’s perfect! You did such a great job on the layout and choosing the black & white pics. We are beyond thrilled 🙂

April 2014 – Sarah + Mark Dhooge – Jill Person was our engagement and wedding photo photographer and we could not have had a better experience with her. I am so beyond thrilled with both of our meetings with her and the photos that she took. I am someone who is very uncomfortable having my picture taken and I don’t consider myself photogenic. Jill had such a great way at putting me and my now husband at ease. I have never been happier and more satisfied looking at pictures of myself. Jill is a true professional, warm, kind, and talented. I would recommend her services to any bride who wants the true emotion and events of her wedding day captured perfectly and beautifully.
April 2014 – Marjie Galler- Dear Lauren, I can’t thank you enough for being a wonderful part of our wedding weekend. I am still flying high on the incredible experience. Your calm, organized, joyful presence helped my family and me get through the tough moments and focus on the beautiful ones. Your professionalism is paramount and your gentle touch remarkable. We already knew you were an amazing photographer, and you are also a wonderful person to be around! Love, Marjie
April 2014 – Jenn + Kevin Neville – Hi Jill, Thank you so much for beautifully capturing our wedding day. We received everything the day we arrived home and they all came out amazing! Our pictures are even better than we had ever hoped for. Thank you for capturing our special day for us!
March 2014 – Lauren + Mike Van Breda – Working with Person + Killian for our wedding was a delightful experience. At our initial meeting with Lauren, we were so impressed with her professionalism and warmth. We connected with Lauren right away and loved her enthusiasm for her work. Our outdoor engagement photos were gorgeous because Lauren captured the effects of sunlight so well. My husband and I also liked working with Lauren in advance of the big day.On our wedding day, Lauren and her assistant worked expertly directing a large wedding party and making sure all key family photos were taken. Even more special, they captured many intimate moments between the bridal party.Importantly, Person+ Killian’s style in not intrusive. You and your guests will not even realize the camera is in the room. But, when you can re-live every hour of your wedding day and night through the pictures, you’ll know you picked the right photographer. We absolutely love the photos. Lauren’s expertise is amazing!! It’s so valuable to have a vendor like Person + Killian as part of your wedding planning experience. During the inevitable hectic weeks before a wedding, working with experienced, detail oriented professionals like Person+ Killian keeps anxiety at bay. We hope to work with Person+ Killian again in the future!
March 2014 – Amanda + Jesse Avalos – Dear Jill, Thank you so much for capturing our wedding day. We could not be more pleased with the results. We can not wait to order our album and photos for our home.
December 2013 – Laura + Matt Rich – Jill and Laurén, I wanted to touch base and thank you again for being a part of our wedding day. Everything went so seamlessly and you were both a large part of that! Everyone is raving about the beautiful job that you guys did and I could not have asked for better. We received the photos in the mail and, again, I am obsessed. Thanks again you guys! Love love love.
November 2013 – Tiffany + Matt Renfro – Jill and Laurén, We are emailing you from sunny Hawaii! The pictures are amazing! We can’t believe the wedding was over a week ago already.

I couldn’t think of a better team to capture our wedding! So thank you thank you!
October 2013 – Emily + Chris Burke – Jill, I just wanted to take the time to thank you for everything you did to make our wedding day so perfect. You are truly a pro in every sense and your experience and demeanor kept us calm and happy from hair and makeup all the way through our reception (including when we were all locked in the dorm hallway and when we managed to pull the bumper off the bus!) You are such a pleasure to work with. Thanks again for everything you did (seen and unseen) to capture the happiest day of our lives. We are so grateful.
September 2013 – Theresa Pagliuca -Lauren you are one of the family , I am in tears, the pictures are beautiful . They truly show the love that Marc and Giulana share as well as this family . And we are honored to have you be part of it….. xoxoxoxoxox ( Mother of the bride)

I did get a chance to look at some of the pictures while we were there, and they are AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am about to spend several hours going through them again! I seriously can’t believe how well they turned out. You were so wonderful to work with. Everybody that I have shared the link with keeps saying what a great job you did, and how easy you were to be around. I hope you had fun with us that weekend!

July 2013 Ginny Bubar- Hello dear Lauren, I love them! You must be tired of hearing that but I am so happy we splurged on the photography! I was so happy to see all the things I missed. She was a beautiful bride but I didn’t have time to notice how beautiful and you gave me that gift. Thank you, Ginny ( mother of the bride)
July 2013 – Linda + Mark – Jill, these photos are great! I am so happy you were able to take photos of the rooms before people went into them and they look amazing! You were incredible and so easy and fun to work with – and obviously talented. Thank you so much and talk to you soon.

June 2013- Dana Cohen- Due – Lauren!!! Thank you so so much. All I can say is WOW over and over again, and I know this is just the sneak peek! We love every single picture. We are looking at the pictures over and over, loving them so much! We can’t wait to see the rest! ( A week Later!) Lauren, We received disk and love all the pictures! Thank you so much! We’ve shared some of the images with our families too, and they are very excited. My mom in particular keeps looking at them over and over again, and its hard not to, as they really capture so many special moments from the day. We couldn’t be happier. Thank you for all of your work to help us have these memories!! Dana
June 2013 -Elizabeth Crowley – Lauren – We are about to head off on our honeymoon to France, but I did not want to wait to extend to you our sincere thanks and appreciation. You were absolutely beyond wonderful. We couldn’t have been happier. Fondly, Elizabeth, Ben and our families too!!

The photographs are AMAZING! You were amazing to work with!
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!!
May 2013 Lauren Buke- Lauren, I just wanted to make sure I reached out to give you a very sincere and emphatic THANK YOU for everything on Saturday! You are absolutely wonderful and I will be spreading the word to anyone who will listen! Thank you, again, for helping to make my/our wedding one of the most wonderful and memorable days of my life/our lives!
May 2013 – Rachel and Sean – Jill, Sean and I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for us. You were always such a true pleasure to work with and I could not have imagined anyone else photographing our wedding. Still, almost two years later you are so engaged with your clients! Sean and I will always continue to recommend you because we can’t even think of anyone that is as phenomenal as you! Weddings are so intimate and it means so much to hire not only a professional “vendor” but a friend. You really are so amazing!!
May 2013 – Mia and Michael – Jill, Thank you so so so much. We LOVE the photos!!!! I have already looked through the cd so many times!! The blog and facebook photos are all great too, thank you for putting that together! I couldn’t be more in love with the photos!!! You were amazing to work with!
April 2013 – Lina & Jonathan Pappalardo – Lauren, Love Love Love! We knew from the moment we met you, Person + Killian had to be the ones to capture our day! We love our pictures and absolutely loved working with you! Thanks for everything… Best of Boston… more like Best of the Best! xoxo
April 2013 – Maria and Peter – Hi Jill, I just want to say thank you. My pictures are AMAZING and you are extremely good at what you do! I just can not say enough wonderful things about the quality of pics and level of professionalism… Thank you again, Maria , Peter , & CoCo!

You were a pleasure to work with! Thank you for helping to make our special day so memorable! Love, Allie and Joe
Dec 2012 Stephanie & Ben Smith – Lauren, Everyone simply LOVES the photos on the blog/facebook! Ben and I also received our disc and we are so happy with every shot! We will be picking out our favorites, though I dare say it will be difficult 🙂 Thank you again so much for all of your hard work and support. You were such a special part of the process – looking forward to putting together our album! Much love, Stephanie
Dec 2012 – Emily Kearns and Chris Burke – Jill, Thank you so much for the gorgeous e-photos and your magical retouching – you are incredible! Thanks for making our first experience with Person + Killian so warm and positive. We can’t wait to spend our wedding day with you!
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
Jan 2012 – Emilia Newell- Thank you so much for making our day so amazing. Looking through these photos again made me smile and remember that we had a perfect day. Patrick and I are both so happy and thankful that you captured our happiness and love.
Jan 2012 – Janet (Mother of the bride)- Dear Jill, Thank you for always accommodating Elizabeth and me in such a wonderful way. I adore the wedding album and admire it continually!! 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. Our family had a wonderful day with them and I could have never imagined how beautiful the pictures are. They really made all of us look spectacular!
Dec 2011- Rhonda: Lauren, the wedding album is beautiful, truly beautiful. You are a gifted photographer and we feel so fortunate to have chosen you to capture their special day. Wishing you continued success. Best,Rhonda – Mother of the bride
November 2011 Christina and Ben Bruneau- I highly recommend Person & Killian Photography! They are not only extremely professional but incredibly talented. I was so excited to see our wedding photos and how beautifully they captured our wedding day. We were married last November, I still enjoy looking through all their photos on facebook. 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
Nov 2011 – Lindsey Scanlon- Thank you so much P+K. You did a beautiful job capturing our wedding day. We absolutely LOVE our pictures!!
Oct 2011 – Joanne Symes- Dear Lauren! It has taken me the better part of 2 weeks to recover from the high that I was on from Christie and Ross’s wedding at The Four Seasons Hotel, Saturday, October 1st, 2011. 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!!! Christie and I love looking at the pictures to relive this very special day in our lives! You are absolutely adorable and incredibly professional and we recommend you highly to anyone that is seeking the BEST!!! With warmest regards, Joanne Symes, alias MOB
Sept 2011 – Sharon Gold- OMG the sneak peek at the photos for Kate And Brad’s wedding are amazing!! You were soooo wonderful and captured all the excitement and joy we were feeling. Can’t praise and thank you enough. We will treasure all these photos for a lifetime! Looking forward to seeing more and will have a hard time picking for my album. I could go on and on with your praises. Person +Killian is a must for any event!! Much love, Sharon (mother of the bride)
Sept 2011 – Jamie Crothers- Lauren, Thank you for the amazing pictures from our wedding. You are so amazing and we are so thankful you were a part of our event!! xoxxo!
July 2011 – Christie Symes- Lauren!! We absolutely LOVE the engagement pictures!! Despite the humidity and heat, you managed to capture us at our best. We are so happy with the images and cannot WAIT for you to photograph our wedding this Fall. I know you will capture the day perfectly. 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!!! We got it on Saturday when we went to Randi and Roger’s house and we got to see their album as well. We really love the layout and mix of color and black and white photos in both albums! You made the whole precess fun and easy! We are thrilled that Randi and Roger chose P+K.
April 2011 – Jessica Tye- Jill , Andrew and I recently got back from our honeymoon and were greeted with the wedding pictures! They are absolutely amazing… We love them so much. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job at the wedding. You really helped to make out day a memorable one.
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. The ceremony photos are stunning — I love that church so much. The Public Gardens photos came out so nicely with all the pretty colors and I really love the ones of John and I dancing at the reception. They really show how much fun we were having! I love them. Thank you so much!! LOVE THEM! Thanks, Regina
August 2010 – Laura and Newt- Lauren, Newt and I cannot thank you enough for capturing our wedding so perfectly! You were so much fun to work with and helped make our day even more special!! And THANK YOU so much for posting our wedding on your blog AND submitting it to Style Me Pretty. It was a dream come true, especially because I spent HOURS looking at Style Me Pretty for inspiration! We spent so much time planning that wedding, and Newt and I worked so hard on the details, it means the world to know other people appreciated it. 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. From our initial meeting to our engagement session to the wedding day, we were so impressed with her. She wasn’t a distraction on the wedding day at all, and managed to make everyone feel comfortable. Thanks so much, Jill!!!
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. Julie and Brian expressed how comfortable they were with you and how your coverage of the wedding was seamless and did not interfere with the natural flow of events and their interactions with family and friends. Julies Mom – So excited for Julie and Brian to come back from Aruba on Saturday so we can look at the pictures together. We knew we would love having you chronicle Julie and Brian’s wedding but even the sneak peek is better than we could have imagined.Thanks so much for being part of and helping preserve the memory of such an important family event.
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. This really made it easier to come back home from the honeymoon. I am sad that it is over but so happy to have these wonderful memories. Thank you so much for everything!!!
August 2010 – Felicia and Joe Pagliuca- Thank you!! These photos are amazing and we are so glad you were part of our wonderful day. We just got back from our honeymoon and have been looking at your pictures–they are so beautiful! We could not be happier–thank you so much!
July 2010 – Sally and Carlos- We loved the pictures Lauren took. She is not only an amazing photographer, but she was a lot of fun to work with. Worth every penny!
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 way 🙂 I 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.
