Our goal is not to shoot hundreds of average pictures, slap them on a disk and wave bye, bye.
We’ll use all our experience of shooting Turks and Caicos to make sure we get gorgeous pictures first off, then let’s collaborate to get the most out of your pictures. Do you have the time to edit 900 pictures down to your favourite 30? Having them all on a disk is nice and of course for Facebook, but then what? Our focus is to help you. Present to you gorgeous, wow, OMG pictures. We’ll have lots to choose from of course but our focus is on quality pictures that you will L+O+V+E.
The second part – being nice. We live here and you’ll be back as you either love Turks and Caicos as much already as we do or you soon will, so this isn’t a typical ”transaction” – we’ve helped clients as their kids have gone from three to thirteen Five, six, seven photo shoots as the years go by. We help with your holiday cards, your valentine’s day gift, mother’s day. We’ve helped more husbands with “last minute” gifts than you can imagine!
So if your life is busy and complicated enough already and you’d like a team of professionals who edit over 500,000 picture every year and love Turks and Caicos – then we’d love to help you.

here is a short video piece that we made just for you!
For the passing thought – you text. For the quick picture– you Instagram. For your 15 megabytes of fame there is You Tube, but for things of lasting importance there are books. For every event worth remembering, for every memory worth keeping, a book must be made. For your parents, your children or for yourself, because now you can. (source unknown)
We’ve scoured the range of both USA based and international suppliers to find the best quality books we can find. We’ve been up and down the booths at all the major photography trade shows, year after year making sure that we give you the best. We’ve done the work for you so you don’t have to try and navigate the maze of suppliers and vendors. These aren’t online books – these are hand crafted by great people right here in the USA. Our books of choice are the books from West Coast Albums in California. They are exclusive to Brilliant in Turks and Caicos and we have worked closely with them to offer you some really unique books. Metal covers, name plates, engraving, boxes, parents copies,8×8 to 14×11 and up to 80 pages. We offer our signature coffee table books which are as as varied as your imagination. Cover choices, design, size , style and upto 80 pages. We also offer our “blu book” – one color choice, “Turks and Caicos” embossed on the cover , a simpler design style inside and upto 40 pages max.
The classic way to present your portrait images is to have prints made. We can supply any size from 4×6 inches through to 30×40 inches, with many different sizes in between!
For local customers we have our own in-house printing facility, while for clients from overseas we have prints made at White House Custom Colour in the USA. Every image is individually inspected and adjusted by our own staff, and hand-retouched where appropriate. For regular photo prints, we offer lustre, or glossy print finishes. Lustre is assumed unless you specify otherwise on your order. Any image can be printed in black-and-white or sepia at no extra cost.
Standout is a thick lightweight board finished with a black edge and comes ready to display with hanging holes on the back. The image will stand out from the wall at a depth of 3/4“. The real beauty of Standout is that nothing extra needs to be done to prepare for display!
For something a little bit unique – why not order a Gallery Wrap? Gallery Wraps are printed on to canvas and mounted onto a 1.5” wooden frame. The image is printed oversized, and the edges of the print are wrapped around the frame. Each Gallery Wrap comes with a laminated surface to protect from scuffs and scratches, as well as providing UV protection.
