Brandon and Callie Kuehler
Brandon Kuehler, Owner and Founder of Light It Right, has over 15 years of industry experience illuminating homes and businesses in the Greater Houston Area.
Brandon first caught the lighting bug while working for an outdoor lighting company while attending Texas Tech University. He even had the chance to work on lighting his own college campus. Once Brandon graduated high school in 2000, he went on to work with a company in Houston knowing his ultimate goal was to eventually start his own exterior lighting business. In 2004, Brandon returned to his hometown of Katy to take the plunge and founded Light It Right. Brandon and his team of experts have been serving Katy and the greater Houston area for the last 10 years, where the company has grown from its inception in Brandon’s parents’ house to a 3,000 Sq. Foot Warehouse space in Katy and two wrapped Service Vans.
Brandon has earned the trust and respect of many local residents, HOAs, and business owners, growing his company into a household name. Each year Brandon is in the top five for the ClaroLux Lighting and Design award, and in 2008 and 2014, Brandon and Light It Right won the prestigious award. In 2011, Brandon earned his Certified Low Voltage Technicians Certificate from the Association of Outdoor Lighting Professionals; he is one of 5 in the state of Texas. In 2014, Brandon started to earn his Certified Outdoor Lighting Design Certificate through the Association of Outdoor Lighting Professionals. In 2015, Brandon and Light It Right took home three Best of Awards at the Association of Outdoor Lighting Professionals Annual Conference. Brandon took home Best Commercial, Best Large Residential, and Best In Show. Since 2015, Brandon has continued to take home design awards from AOLP and other industry leaders, as well as being named a Top 40 Under 40 Lighting Designer. Brandon only designs what is best for a homeowners home, he never oversells someone just to make a buck, he works with our customers to achieve their goals.
Callie Kuehler, Owner and Vice President, manages the Katy office, coordinating everything from new installations to the day to day needs and marketing. If you call the office, she is the one you will speak with. Callie previously worked with Brandon on a separate business venture and joined Light It Right in 2013 from TransCanada where she worked as an Associate for the Central Marketing Team.
Callie graduated Magna Cum Laude from Texas Tech University in 2009, with a BS in Restaurant, Hotel, and Institutional Management. After being part of the opening team at The Overton Hotel and Conference Center in Lubbock, she moved back to Houston in 2010 to work at the Magnolia Hotel in Downtown Houston. Her past work experience includes an internship at the Stafford Hotel in London. Callie is active in the Rotary Club of Katy and is a Committeemen for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
Like Brandon, Callie is originally from the Katy area. She brings her local intel and hospitality experience to the process, helping support the company’s mission of turning client’s dreams of adding value to their properties a reality.
Together, Brandon and Callie run a family Owned and Operated business and carry that mentality through to their customers – they may have large business systems in place, but the thought process and treatment their customers receive is all small business and local – after all Light It Right is right down the street.
