Trelawne was an absolute star. She delivered exactly what we requested, which wasn't quite the usual wedding photo package so she really went above and beyond. My now-husband and I had a wedding 'festival' and were looking for a journalistic style of photography to really capture the energy and emotion of the day. We wanted to skip a lot of the posed couple photos and opted instead for more casual group shots and lots of captured moments. This slight departure from the norm meant our photographer had to be open and energetic - as well as talented!
We genuinely couldn't be happier with our shots.
As well as being calm, patient and lovely to work with, Trelawne managed the crowds for group shots like a pro and captured the whole day beautifully. Our only regret is not making her cover the full 16 hours! I would happily recommend Brightlights Photography: they are professional, the quality is exceptional and we got everything we wanted - what more can you ask for?
Thank you so much!

"Trelawne did an absolutely amazing job photographing The Great Adventure Race for Cure Kids! She had a huge amount of ground to cover with this event and captured everything that was asked and more! Thank so much for all your efforts."

“The King Koil Great Auckland Bed Race is a family-focused fun day spectacular, which raises money for a wide range of registered NZ charities. This annual community event features a novelty fancy dress parade, a range of skilled performers, an exciting pillow-fight for all ages and a wacky bed race around a 3km course at Auckland Domain! The essence of the event lies not only in the action of the day, but also in the reactions of those involved. As the event has grown, we’ve realised that one photographer has limited coverage, and so for the third run of the race, we chose to engage two specialist photographers to share the load. Trelawne’s skill with people shone through in her work, and we were particularly delighted with the expressions she captured on people’s faces throughout the event. The emotions her images portray run the full gamut, encapsulating the passion and exhaustion of the runners, the pride as well as the cheeky humour of those in the parade, and the childlike delight of those in the crowd enjoying the energetic, fun-filled displays. Even with a whirlwind of activity to distract her attention all day long, Trelawne managed to capture some wonderful heart-felt imagery which perfectly portrayed the atmosphere of the whole 2015 event. We are deeply grateful to her!”

“Recently we had our Company mid winter Xmas dinner at Sails Restaurant. Bright Lights Photography were the function photographers.
We all thought the standard of photography was very high and very professional.There are a mixture of posed , ad lib and action shots in colour and black and white which created a lot of laughs and discussion amongst everyone.
I would have no hesitation recommending Bright Lights photographic skills to anyone. Their skills I imagine would not be restricted to just a Xmas function I believe they would successfully be applicable to a wide range of functions and events.”
