Brilliant Light Photography | Meredith Stone – Wedding, Engagements, & Portraits| Boise, ID bio picture

    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!

From a perfect engagement shoot in the rain to a perfect Idaho backyard wedding, these two have a special place in my heart forevermore. I’m kind of obsessed with them, in the non-creepiest way possible, of course. They trusted me with everything, and with that kind of trust comes amazing results.

Pictures are worth a thousand words, so I won’t write much, but I will say this: Monica did all her own makeup, hair, helped make the decorations and bouquets and… made her own dress. And it is one of the most stunning dresses I’ve ever seen. If that’s not impressive, get this: she’d never made a dress before.

I could write forever about how their love is perfect, how awesome they are as individuals and even better together, how the wedding felt incredibly peaceful and perfect and joyful, and how they’re amazingly skilled dancers, but I’ll just let you see for yourself.

Congrats, you two. <3

Farm Kitchen. Poulsbo, WA.

Josh and Kristin are one of the cutest couples that I know. Their love for each other is so happy;  the both of them just radiate around each other. Their wedding was held on a day with perfect sunny, cool weather at Farm Kitchen in Poulsbo, WA. I was so honored to travel there to be a part of their amazing day.

Lucky Peak Engagement

Four great things:

1.) These two were so kind and fun and awesome

2.) The weather, which had been rainy and stormy all week, decided to be nice for the two hours that we shot. Thanks, weather, you’re the real MVP.

3.) Lucky Peak was beautiful as alwaayys.

4.) Annnd, these two brought their dog. And it was adorable. And so, if you know me at all, I was filled to the brim emotionally. (And also, if you ever want to book a session with me, feel free to bring your dog. always. And if you don’t have one, just bring someone else’s. I’m sure they won’t mind.)

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.

    Becca - So much beautiful…ReplyCancel


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.
