Why is light so important? Advice from Boise Wedding Photographer Brie Thomason

Why is light so important? Advice from Boise Wedding Photographer Brie Thomason

You've probably heard me, or another photographer, mention how important that light is for images.  George Eastman, the founder of Kodak, once said, "Light makes photography.  Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography." I have always used this quote as a guide for how I approach wedding photography.  It is important for me to be able to know how to create great images regardless if it is sunny, raining, extremely bright, or hardly any light.  I have taken courses upon courses just on light so that I know how to handle every possible situation.  However, it should be noted that I do favor certain light over other light and that is why I am writing this blog post!

Muted Tone Fall Wedding Inspiration- Boise Wedding Photographer

This beautiful shoot took place in a very small town outside of Mountain Home, Idaho called Pine.  I had fallen in love with the location when my husband and I were up exploring the mountains one day.  I felt so inspired by the river, that I knew someday I was going to do a photoshoot there.  As a Boise Wedding Photographer, I am always watching the surroundings for what could be a great location for a shoot.  I love to have many options for my clients to choose from for locations. 

This shoot was such a fun project for me.  I had a vision in my head and an inspiration mood board, but I was still extremely challenged about how I was going to make it all come to life.  I met Kimi and Gabe, my models for the shoot, at a coffee shop in Boise.  I was the creep who gave them a business card and asked them if they'd ever want to do a photo shoot with me.  I saw their chemistry while getting coffee and knew that they would be so fun to photograph- and they were! These two were so madly in love, they made my job ridiculously easy! 

We were racing the rain, which is never fun! We knew it was supposed to be a rainy day, according to the forecast, but we saw that a little bit of a break was coming in the morning and we wanted to take advantage of it! It stayed dry until I was finishing up my very last roll!  Granted, I probably would have kept photographing them forever.  They were just too fun to capture! 

A great team of local Boise wedding vendors came together for this shoot! Please check out their information and websites below:

Austin & Whitney // Boise Wedding & Engagement Photographer

Aloha! I'm sure it seems silly to be reading that if you are in Idaho and freezing right now.  I am actually in Maui for the next couple of days.  I was hired to come out and shoot a gorgeous oceanside elopement! The wedding was stunning and I will share images with you as soon as I get them back from my film lab. 

As a Boise wedding photographer  I get the opportunity to photograph gorgeous Idaho weddings and a few weddings in neighboring states.  It has been such a treat to get to visit Hawaii and also get to photograph here.  

Enough about Hawaii, let's talk about Austin and Whitney! Gorgeous is an understatement with these two and their fall engagement session.  They told me they wanted fall colors and a cool location and I knew just the spot to take them! Fall is actually my favorite season, so engagement sessions in the fall just make my heart happy! It was such a treat getting to photograph these two. 

I hope you enjoy! 

Chris + Shanae //Still Water Hollow

Chris + Shanae// Still Water Hollow Wedding// Boise Wedding Photographer 

Chris and Shanae were the type of couple that reminded me why I am as passionate about my job as I am.  The entire day was full of nothing but love and respect for every person that attended the wedding.  In fact, during their consultation before the wedding they talked strongly about how excited they were to see all their guests and expressed their stress about how much they wanted them to have fun...and fun they had! In fact, after we all choked back tears from their ceremony and toasts, we all spent the day laughing and smiling ear-to-ear.  

Some details you should look for in this wedding: Shanae hand stitched Chris his hankie, Chris got a little emotional when his gorgeous bride came down the aisle, and the guest book for the wedding was vintage post cards collected by Shanae's grandparent's during their life's travels.  This day was full of little details that made an amazing overall wedding.  I was so honored to be a part of Chris and Shanae's wedding!

Daniel and Yesii's Boise, Idaho wedding was one for the books! They had all my favorite things as a Boise Idaho wedding photographer: great location, great lighting, and wicked great emotion.
