Tall Order Expertly Executed
We knew we needed a true professional to help us capture all the shots we wanted on our wedding day – Jill Person and her assistant John exceeded all expectations!
Logistically, our photo portrait timeline was a VERY tall order. We wanted pictures taken in three separate geographic locations: 1. Trinity Chapel in Newton, MA 2. Boston College in Chestnut Hill, MA 3. Boston Harbor Hotel in Boston, MA. We did not do a first look, so this all had to happen within 90 minutes between ceremony end and cocktail hour. When accounting for travel time, this really boiled down to 60 minutes for portrait shots of family, wedding party of 12, and bride and groom solo pictures. No pressure!
Jill worked with us on the timeline prior to our wedding day and executed it flawlessly. We got every single picture we wanted in all three locations and still made it to the reception on time! What’s more, we never felt rushed or pressured. Jill is incredibly personable and made everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. This was the first wedding for both of families and many of our wedding party. It was such a relief to have an experienced, organized photographer guiding everyone through the process and making sure we enjoyed ourselves while doing it!
I cannot say enough good things about Person + Killian. From the moment we booked Jill she made everything so seamless. We will treasure the engagement session, getting ready pictures, ceremony photos, portraits and the COUNTLESS shots she captured of all our guests at the reception forever.
If you're on the fence, THIS is the vendor to budget for. The photos are what will keep the memories fresh long after the wedding day. Worth. Every. Penny.

Fantastic wedding photographer
A friend recommended Person + Killian to us and they exceeded all our expectations. Very talented, thoughtful, unobtrusive and kind, they expertly and calmly went about their business of selecting the best shot, the best lighting, situation, etc. During the religious ceremony their sense of propriety was greatly appreciated. They made everyone feel included and special as they photographed our families and friends throughout the wedding and reception.Sent on 06/26/2019

Lauren - simply put - is the best! A dream to work with!
I met Lauren at my best friend's wedding and immediately knew that if she happened to be available, we would be SO lucky to have her photograph our wedding the following summer (the fact that we grew up in the same town was a bonus!). She was and I cannot say enough about our experience working with her. Lauren is amazing. Not only does she take the most beautiful photographs, but she provides every couple she works with laughter, support, and direction during their wedding day (and beyond). Besides your future husband/wife, your photographer is someone who is there every step of the day - and Lauren has the ability to capture the most perfect moments to make your day unforgettable. She is so fun, quickly turned around our photos, and just made us feel so comfortable the entire time. I couldn't say enough about her and her team and wholeheartedly recommend her! I only wish I had another big event in the future that I could work with her on!Sent on 01/03/2019
