I photograph your wedding the way I would want mine to be captured - relaxed, efficient, and artistic. I carry minimal equipment because I strongly feel that being caught up in what gear to use when blocks the flow of the day and the ability
to capture what’s happening. I shoot with one Canon 5d mark iii body and swap between three prime lenses. Only during the ceremony do I bring out my longer lens so I can remain discreet.
My ability to listen to what you want really separates me from everyone else. I understand how important it is to be listened to and the big disappointment that occurs when you haven’t been heard. Your wedding day is exactly that, yours. My priority is capturing what is important to you and making you feel comfortable in front of the camera. I take direction from you as a couple just as much as you take direction from me. If your dynamic feels silly and goofy, I will make pictures that let you be like that. If the dynamic is more reserved, or you feel you need more direction, I am more than happy to put you in natural poses and then let you have your own moment.
My style of photography strikes a balance of fine art and photojournalism. I believe that the candid moments are just as important as the traditional ones. Taking influence from the natural world, I strive to create imagery that celebrates you and the elegance, beauty, and magical moments that make your day.
I am proud to say that I work with all different types of couples. I have worked successfully with strictly religious couples as well as others who opted for small outdoor ceremonies. I have photographed 200-person receptions in lavish ballrooms, as well as restaurant receptions where everyone mingles and there are no formalities. Regardless of what type of wedding my couples have, they are drawn to my emphasis on candid moments and natural portraits.
I love traveling for weddings. Any time spent in the car/train/plane leading up to a wedding, I really see as an opportunity to think about your wedding and focus myself on my craft. Please note that additional travel charges apply beyond 50 miles.
Accessibility and craft once limited who could photograph and who could not, but that is obviously no longer the case. If Uncle Bob wants to photograph your wedding then that is wonderful, and he will capture it in a very different and unique way than I will. Everybody wants a different level of photography and no one way is correct. But photography does come in different levels. When you hire a professional photographer, that is their job. They have invested their time, money, and themselves into making sure they are the best. You spend so much time planning your wedding that you deserve someone who understands that and will honor your effort with beautiful and technically excellent imagery.
Yes! I am happy to call Denver my home but I love going back to New England. I also love traveling, and would happily photograph your wedding anywhere in the world.
I want to have a minimal presence during your day, which is why some packages include a second shooter and some do not. Once I understand more details about your wedding, we can decide together whether a second shooter will be a beneficial addition to your day.

"We were very lucky to find Lili ... we were looking for a photographer that could capture natural moments instead of overly posed pictures and, from looking at her portfolio. We saw that she was the right person for the job. She was very organized and professional and worked with us to adapt her services to our type of wedding (a small, 10 people ceremony). We received our pictures online within a few weeks and were extremely happy with the results. One of the things that impressed us is that she was able to make the pictures look as if us and our family were the only ones there while the ceremony was happening in the middle of the day at a busy public park. With our time constraints and budget we thought getting good pictures of our day was impossible but Lili made it happen!"
"Lili did such an incredible job of photographing our wedding!! We honestly did not see her most of the day and have no idea how she got such great shots! She took all the requested photos of family and got some great candid shots of everyone and everything. We could not have asked for a better, more professional team. We will be forever grateful for how Lili captured our day!"

"We were very pleased with Lili Boxer Photography, and would highly recommend her services as a wedding photographer. My husband is a photography student, and was impressed by the high quality and photojournalistic style of her work. Lili was a pleasure to work with, and very proactive, professional, and organized. We really appreciated the level of personalization that she incorporated into her work. For instance, we really appreciated that she went the extra mile to virtually “meet” us through Skype. Priceless moments were discreetly captured as Lili and her 2nd shooter seamlessly blended into the background. We received a few “sneak peek” photographs a few days after the wedding, and the full album in a very timely manner. The final product thrilled us, family, and friends alike."

"Lili has a great eye for composition and lighting in her photos, there was really no poor quality photos from our wedding day shoot that we were unhappy with as clients. She was very thorough yet concise with the contract and paperwork. She sticks to deadlines set with her clients firmly, she met with us without fail on times we requested to meet with her. On the day of the wedding, she effortlessly guided the extended family through many of photos in fast times that were set with us beforehand. She has a very professional and fun demeanor when working with her, overall I would definitely recommend as a photographer for your own wedding."

"Having attended college with Lili, I knew she was my first choice photographer based on the quality of her work and her cheerful and laid back personality. My only concerns were travel distance (at the time, Boston to Maine) and budget. I presented these concerns to her at the start, and she was incredibly accommodating! We easily determined a budget that worked for everyone, and I was assured the distance was no problem--come to find out later, she was also in the middle of moving to Colorado! Planning for the day consisted of only a handful of e-mails, mostly consisting of names/family groups, and with an incredibly quick response time. I gave her complete creative control, barely noticed she was even there for the entirety of the celebration, and the results are breathtaking. She truly captured how happy we are and the magic of our wedding day. Lili is an incredibly talented artist and I would recommend her to anyone!"

"Full disclosure, I'm a photographer myself. I'm so glad I took the plunge with Lili. She arranged a truly classy and casual engagement portrait session with me and my fiancé. The end result: a collection of beautiful, understated images of the two of us just being ourselves. Lili has a gift for incorporating the landscape into her work. Her style is candid, almost documentary, but don't be fooled - each composition is considered and intentional. Lili is light on her feet, she is equal parts structured and alert to improvisation. She magically absorbed all our jitters and awkwardness with her humor, conversation, and professionalism. In addition to her personal style and creativity, Lili is a classically trained photographer. Her technical acuity is present in every shot. I can't recommend Lili highly enough! Our engagement shoot was a wonderful introduction to Lili and her skill set. I'm confident we're in good hands for the big day."

"Lili photographed our wedding in Brookline. It was a fantastic experience! We interviewed SO many photographers trying to find someone we were comfortable with, and when we met Lili and saw her work, we knew we had found the right person! Her package included an engagement session, which helped us get comfortable in front of the camera. She went with our natural goofiness and let us play off of each other to capture the best photos, but also had great prompts for us throughout.She worked with us to put together a smooth shot-list that got all the photos we wanted during formal pictures. On our wedding day, she managed to capture AMAZING pictures of both the ceremony and reception without either of us realizing that she was even there. Lili was also the first person we felt REALLY listened when we described what we wanted. Our focus was on people, not on things. Lili listened to what we wanted and followed through with amazing photos. We would highly recommend Lili to anyone looking for a Boston-area wedding photographer!"

"I first met Lili in 2011 while we were both working at a summer camp. Since then I had been following her photography career and when I got engaged last summer I knew I wanted Lili to be my photographer. All four of us worked together to organize the day and Lili was flexible and extremely helpful in planning out everything. When it came time to send Lili the photo list for the groups photos she was so understanding of my large and complex family and worked with me to get a comprehensive list of all the group photos we wanted. We also had a bit of a time crunch and Lili worked with me to fit in our “first look” photos before the ceremony and all of our group portraits before our meal. There was also a risk of rain, and she made me feel so reassured that even if there was some rain we would be able to work out a solution and still get all the photographs we wanted. Lili and Gabby helped to get my husband and I together for our “first look” photos and they captured some wonderful moments between the two of us. We got our final photos just a few weeks after the wedding and they are truly beautiful!"
