We're so excited to bring you the fabulous and talented Jill Person and Lauren Killian of Person & Killian Photography. We've had the pleasure of working with them on many events, and they are as incredible people as they are incredible photographers. Read below to get an inside look into their successful business as well as what they love about photographing events for so many interesting clients. You can learn more about Person and Killian on their website at www.personkillian.com or blog at www.personkillianblog.com. You can also follow them on Facebook or Twitter. Enjoy!
1.) We've had the pleasure of working with you on events in the past, and your photos always capture the beautiful moments of the day! Can you give us a little history of your business? When/where did you start your photography?
Both Lauren and I went to school for photography - Jill right away with a BA of Science (Photography concentration) from Salem State and Laurén attended the New England School of Photography after graduating from taking a photography class in Italy while earning her degree from Quinnipiac University. We started the business in 2004 from our homes and moved into our current Newbury Street location in 2005. In 2010 we expanded the business with a second office in Newport, RI.
Typically whomever meets with the couple initially will be the one who deals with the couple throughout the whole process. Whichever one of us meets with the client we also do their engagement session, wedding and all post production (editing, albums etc).
We do not shoot the weddings together so it is either Laurén or myself and one of our associates (all professional photographers rather than assistants).
We find that the majority of people who come and meet with us understand what it is we do and put all of their trust in us on the day of to do what we do best.
There are so many. It's capturing the emotion in a split second that tells the story of the day, a family relationship, the love of the couple, etc. From the first look when the couple sees each other throughout the end of the night we have countless opportunities to capture these photos that the client will cherish and share with their families
4.) It seems like boudoir photography became really popular in 2010, are there any new trends coming up in the 2011 wedding season that you've noticed?
It's early in the season but we are thinking that ballroom weddings will be popular with more traditional elements with the upcoming Royal Wedding. Boston is a traditional city with so many fantastic venues and locations for classic and timeless portraits (while still keeping the photo-journalistic candid style for the more emotional moments).
