Kind Words From Clients

Dan is a true professional. He actually recommended most of the vendors we used which really helped especially being based in Auckland. Dan got some great shots and really exceeded our expectations.

I recommend 222 photographic Studios very highly as they really take the time to really understand what his customers want and makes it happen. Thanks once again Dan

Dan organised an amazing day for me and my wife. He was caring and attentive throughout.

The images he provided are incredible, and the quality of its presentation cant be understated.

Joshua Neary – 25th August 2022

Thank you Dan for the wonderful pictures! The locations were great, the moments sublime, and we’re absolutely thrilled with the photos you took.

I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to sending them out to friends and family.

Thank you again.

Dan photographed our wedding and I’ve also worked with him on a number of corporate events. He is an absolute superstar and an incredible artist.

At my wedding, he made me feel super confident in front of the camera and captured some beautiful memories from our big day. He has this wonderful ability to melt into the background and be totally natural.

I would recommend Dan a thousand times over and I’ve booked him again to get some family photos done for my daughters 1st birthday which I can’t wait for!

Clare Almeida

So many compliments from our wedding guests at how awesome Dan was. He even managed to stop the flower girl mid tantrum to get some awesome bridal party shots.

You will end up with the most amazing photos. So glad we went with Dan. You wont be disappointed.

Dan shot our wedding in October – he is an amazing photographer and such fun to be around!

He was so good at telling people where he wants them but in such a relaxed way!

We adore our photos!
