  • HEY THERE!

    I'm so happy you're here on the blog! My name's Meredith and I am the owner and photographer (and everything else) of Brilliant Light Photography. I **love** what I do.

    If you want to get to know me better, feel free to:
    stalk my Instagram.
    read my tweets.
    check out a list of things I like.

    If you have questions, head over to my FAQ section in which some questions are real and some I totally made up. You'll never know which. If you do, you're a wizard.

    You can also use the contact form above to just say "hello!" or to ask me further questions. Like what you see? I'll send you a pricing sheet!

I gave up family photoshoots for a while. They were often the same smiling poses in parks, and while I realize those photos are important, they began to feel stale to me. When Alyssa, the mother of this family, contacted me, I said yes to a family photoshoot for the first time in a while. She basically just wanted me to tag along with them hanging out, to take candids of them in the field behind their home. And that’s exactly what I love to do.

I was goo-goo eyed over their little blonde one year old, and bonded with their oldest about the Avengers. I even found out that Alyssa had been an art major, and so I got to talk with her about topics that I just don’t get to talk about that often. It was an evening that made me feel extremely content, and I left with a very full heart and a new passion for family shoots.

Oh my dear holy Lord, these two..

I cannot stop gushing over how cute they are. It filled up my heart to hang out with them, and then it filled up my heart again to edit their photos.

This shoot was worth getting barely any sleep for, and worth being freezing cold. It was even worth rock climbing from the bottom of Table Rock to the top to photograph them.

Jk. Totally drove.

But really, it was worth everything. It probably would have even been worth rock climbing up. I mean, just look at them.

These two are the raddest. I photographed their wedding, and when I got the chance to do this maternity session, I jumped on it. It was cold outside, but we wanted a beautiful backdrop. Lucky Peak did not let us down.

Weird fact: Me and Mariah met at an Arts and Drama Camp when we were eight. We became instant best friends when we found out that we had the exact same initials. After camp, I didn’t see her for years, but we found each other on MSN Messenger when we were teenagers and have kept in touch since.

(Technology, you’re cool. I like you.)

Flash forward many years, and me and Gerald were in a Spanish class together in community college. I could not have survived that class without his sense of humor.

Was so excited when I found out these two awesome souls were getting married.

And now, I’m so excited for these two to create a family together.

These two are so fun and so cute together! I had a blast walking around with them in the MK Nature Center and along the Boise greenbelt, and laughing super hard as I listened to their fun college stories. It was chilly, but that always makes for good snuggle weather – and we got a lot of beautiful cuddle photos.

I’m seriously so excited for these two and their future together. They currently live in Northern Idaho, but will soon make Boise their home! I’m hoping for more hangouts in the future.

Summer Sunset Engagement Photos

Today in Boise, Idaho it is snowing.. SNOWING! In mid November!

It couldn’t be a more perfect time to share something that will make you feel warm.

I photographed Meredith (name twin!) and Pedar over the summer, and I now finally have time to do a blogpost! I LOVED this shoot and everything about it. These two have such a special connection and are so fun to be around. They are both actors and currently live in NYC, but were in Boise because Pedar was a part of the Idaho Shakespeare Festival. He super kindly hooked me up with tickets to Les Miserables, in which he played Marius. The show was incredible.

These are the type of people I could never forget. They left an imprint on my heart. I am still to this day blessed by their shoot and meeting them.

They also wrote some really kind words about this shoot on their blog. You can see it here: http://www.airandmer.com/blog/engagement-photos
