Ringing in the New Year is cause for celebration, and for taking a look back at another fantastic year of events. It always amazes us to see how much can happen in a year!

As 2017 comes to an end, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on this memorable year. 2017 brought with it many Boston weddings, mitzvahs and everything from charity galas to surprise parties. We traveled near and far this year throughout New England from the cliffs of Maine to the mountains of Vermont and to destination weddings in New York City and sunny Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Of course we are honored to have frequented our hometown throughout the year at greater Boston’s most prestigious and beautiful hotels, libraries and museums. We also had the pleasure of photographing some of the newest wedding and social venues from the historic JFK Presidential Library and Museum to the city’s newest upscale VIP nightlife destination – The Grand in Boston’s Seaport district.

As we look back on this year, we can say that we have had the chance to work with the most amazing couples and talented industry friends. You are all truly what makes what we do so special, memorable and what continues to make us love what we do! With sincere appreciation, gratitude and with a grateful hearts we say Thank You all for sharing your lives with us!

Wishing you all a Happy New Year full of good health, happiness and success in 2018!

All our best, Lauren and Jill

For a summer wedding in Boston there’s no better place to be than out on the beautiful Boston Harbor. Nicki and Steve’s summer Boston Harbor Hotel wedding was the perfect celebration for this wonderful couple, and a reunion of Person + Killian with a fantastic family — we photographed Nicki’s sister’s wedding nine years ago!

The entire wedding day took place right at the Boston Harbor Hotel, with the bride and groom both getting ready in their rooms overlooking the harbor. It was a warm and sunny day, so we took Nicki and Steve out to the waterfront for their first look. We stayed outside the Hotel for formal photos with the couple along the harbor, and of course underneath the classic Boston Harbor Hotel archway! We were then joined by the bridal party, and took some group photos with bridesmaids and groomsmen across the street on the greenway.

The couple said their “I do”s in a short and sweet ceremony in the Boston Harbor Hotel’s Wharf Room, after which everyone moved out to the waterfront for cocktails and hors d’ouevres. During cocktail hour the Wharf Room was transformed into a beautiful and romantic reception space. A mix of round linen tables and mirror-topped banquet tables surrounded the white dance floor, with soft colors of pink, coral, and gold in the floral arrangements and accents. Nicki and Steve danced the night away surrounded by friends, family, and loved ones for the perfect end to a beautiful summer Boston Harbor Hotel wedding.

Special thanks to the bride and groom for letting us be a part of your wedding day, and to Michael Boivin at the Boston Harbor Hotel for another spectacular event!

It’s no secret that we love the city of Boston, and of our many favorite places to capture a wedding, the Taj Boston offers a blend of grand luxury and timeless style. It’s easy to see why Tara and Steve chose the city they love (and the Taj Boston) for their elegant black tie wedding!

Starting on a lovely August day, this wedding began with the ladies gathered together in the bridal suite. Tara enjoyed some light-hearted fun together as they prepped for the day ahead. The bridesmaids dressed in floor length gowns while the gentlemen looked sharp in a classic tuxedo. Tara’s dress was a Vera Wang ballgown with a veil that framed the bride perfectly. Never one to disappoint, Winston Flowers created classic bouquets for the ladies to carry with white and cream flowers that felt timeless and lush.  

The couple selected the Main Dining Room at the Taj for its stunning grandeur melded with refined intimacy. One of the bride’s favorite memories is the look on Steve’s face when she began walking down the aisle.  They wed under a chuppah surrounded by their nearest and dearest where they exchanged personalized vows.  

After the ceremony, we headed over to the Boston Public Garden to capture some fun bridal party shots while the guests enjoyed cocktail hour.  We absolutely adore capturing these candids as the bridal party walked through the streets of Boston – between the ear to ear smiles and the stunning backdrops – we can’t shoot enough great shots!

The Rooftop at the Taj offers everything they were looking for in a reception location – expansive city views, modern & chic decor – the perfect mix of black tie sophistication.  The setting was complemented nicely with classic centerpieces of white roses and floor-length linens. Mini-lanterns lined the ceiling giving everything a romantic glow. Guests packed the dance floor and partied the night away.  A good time was definitely had by all.

One of our favorite parts of the evening was the couple’s send off. The guests gathered to toss white rose petals at the newlyweds as they departed.  We agree with the bride –  capping off the evening with that last bit of laughter, love, and happiness was a great way to end the night!

Working with the expert staff at the Taj is always great – we can’t thank them enough along with all the great vendors we had the pleasure of working with.  Congratulations again Tara and Steve!

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.

There is nothing we love more then Fairmont Copley Plaza events! Over the winter we had the pleasure of photographing the hotel’s beautiful holiday bacchanal.

The Fairmont toasted the holiday season with a lavish five-course dinner featuring a special menu from Executive Chef Laurent Poulain. The hotel’s dramatic lobby was transformed into a sophisticated winter wonderland while guests dined at two beautiful tables running the length of the space. Over fifty guests gathered under the beautiful floral creations by Marc Hall Design, for an unforgettable and one-of-a-kind dining experience. They sat among crystal chandeliers, stunning marble columns, and sparkling holiday décor. Chef presented a sumptuous, four-course menu with flavors inspired by the season and perfectly-paired wines with each course.

We are so thrilled to be back at the Fairmont Copley Plaza next week to photograph the Spring Bacchanal. As winter winds down, The Fairmont Copley Plaza will celebrate the warmer weather and longer days of Spring. This time they will transform the lobby into a sophisticated garden party! To find out more information on where to purchase tickets, click here.

On a beautiful fall day Megan and Robert’s black and white inspired Boston Harbor Hotel Wedding was both traditional and elegant. Stylish, polished, and bursting with beautiful details, this black and white affair will have everyone saying, “I Do!”

Megan and Robert were surrounded by their loving family and friends for a traditional and heartfelt ceremony inside the breathtaking architecture of Saint Mary-Saint Catherine Church. A charming Boston trolley then whisked away our gorgeous newlyweds and wedding party to capture some perfectly playful city shots.

The classically beautiful Boston Harbor Hotel was flawlessly transformed into a vision of black white elegance for Megan and Robert’s stunning wedding reception. With fabulous white and cream florals, chic chalk decor, and simply delightful his and hers signature drinks Megan and Robert’s wedding was chock-full of irresistibly pretty details. Later, guests enjoyed the bold and eye-catching black and white dance floor for the bride and groom’s touching first dance and the exciting live band performance of Joey & The Connections.

If you’ve ever had the chance to attend an event at The State Room Boston in the evening, when you can see the busy city streets lit up from 33 stories above it all, you know it’s absolutely breathtaking. Photographing the Boston State Room Wedding of Lindsay + Bradley was exactly that, magical and romantic with a classic Boston feel.

Lindsay got ready at the luxurious and historic Langham Hotel, where she also had her  joyous first look with the groom. The rain cleared just in time to take formals in the beautiful misty afternoon, so we headed to Post Office Square with the couple and our cameras to capture special moments with Lindsay, Bradley and their families.

The ceremony and reception were at the State Room and the evening was radiant with a sense of traditional elegance and classic Boston charm. Guests were floored by the most spectacular view of Boston’s skyline through a panoramic glass wall 20 ft high and 120 ft across. Gorgeous, soft and elegant ivory and green florals graced the table tops in varying centerpieces from Sean at La Folie Fleur. Everyone enjoyed toasts, cake, laughter and fun as the couple and their guests danced into the late night.

Thank you to the entire team at the State Room Boston for another flawless event, and congratulations Lindsay + Bradley!
