Top Boise Engagement Photo Locations: Military Reserve in the Boise Foothills

This photo location in the foothills is an amazing spot for engagement photos in Boise!

Considering locations for engagement photos in Boise, the foothills are a familiar part of the Boise landscape. For visitors flying in for destination photos or weddings, or for local couples looking for a location that captures the feeling and nature of Boise, the Boise foothills are a top choice. 


Options for Engagement Photos in the Boise Foothills


As a Boise engagement photographer, I often spend time scouting locations for engagement photos. With so many beautiful options to choose from in the foothills of Boise, one of my favorites is the Military Reserve

Engagement Photos at The Military Reserve


Covering over 700 acres of land, the Military Reserve is located in the northeast section of Boise. It is home to natural landscapes, native plants, winding creeks and rolling hills. With golden brown grasses and sage green plants, the natural backdrop of the Military Reserve is beautiful for engagement photos.

Because the Military Reserve hosts hiking trails, paths make it easy to navigate during a photo session, with stunning views within a few minutes of hiking.

The Military Reserve: Why it’s beautiful for Engagement Photos


As a photographer, my number one priority when it comes to engagement photos is light. The Military Reserve offers photo locations with open shade, which allows me to capture soft light on the couple from head to toe. It also has photo locations with vast open sky above, making sunrise or sunset engagement sessions the best time of day for me to capture couples soaked in beautiful golden light!

In addition to looking at light, I always pay attention to the surfaces that bounce the light around the space. The neutral colors of the Boise landscape keep the bounced light clean in color cast.

Finally, as an engagement photographer, I love when photo locations have a variety of backdrops. The Military Reserve has locations where I’m able to photograph the vast landscape of the Boise foothills and amazing views of downtown Boise. It shows off the mountainous landscape overlooking the Boise skyline. I love the way the Military Reserve holds so many characteristics of Boise in one location, and love telling the stories of our couples in this spot!

Wedding photography is my heartbeat. I love capturing the interactions between the bride and her tribe as they get ready together, the look on a groom’s face when he FINALLY sees his bride for the first time, and the way a dad wraps his arms around his baby girl on her wedding day. Bride and groom portraits make my heart jump and I cry on almost every wedding day.
