Frequently Asked Questions

Do you travel for weddings?
Yes, absolutely! What exciting place do you have in mind?
How will I receive my photographs?
You will get a link to your own private and personal gallery webpage, where you can view, share order prints and albums AND download your digital images.
Do we have rights to print our photos?
Yes, you have an open license for the images, which gives you full rights to print your photos. We do ask that you take your images to a professional printing service to avoid disappointment from a cheaper printing service that don’t specialise in delivering beautiful images. We also provide a full in house printing service using archival ink and paper to give you life long lasting images to enjoy and past on to loved ones.
What happens if you’re sick on my wedding day?

I do try and keep myself in tip top condition! BUT things do happen and if something should happen I am part of a large Photographic network, NZIPP which is short for New Zealand Insitute of Professional Photographers. I also have life time friends who are award winning wedding photographers too. We all work well together and we will do everything in our power to make sure you have nothing to worry about.

Do you do albums?
Yes, we have a professional design team that will put together a professional album just for you. As I was there for your wedding, I will know the special moments and the perfect way to tell the magical story of your day. I believe having an album is the best way of recording your special day, it gives you something truely beautiful to cherish. We have samples in the studio we can show you, also you can check out the albums on the product page of this website.
What happens if it rains?
Some of my favourite shots are when its raining! But if you aren’t wanting to get wet there will be alternative places we can do shots, varying depending on the venue. I will make sure I get the best possible photos of you rain or shine!
What is your style?
I’m like your free-range, organic photographer, I like to let things unfold naturally. I’ll give you space to relax, breathe and let your guard down. It’s how those beautiful candid moments we all love can shine through. Without breaking the spell, I capture these moments of honesty. I reckon I’m a storyteller. And on your special day, we’re writing your story. I love it when the true self shines through and a story bubbles to the surface. I know it takes a leap of faith to do that in front of a guy with a camera but if we jump together, it’s much easier.
Do we need to meet prior to our wedding?
Yes! If you are able to meet beforehand it would be great to discuss things in person and get to know the both of you. And if you are coming here for a destination wedding we can have a chat via Zoom or Skype. A great way to get to know each other is with an Engagement shoot. If you have booked your wedding with us, be sure to talk to us about the great rate we can offer on an engagement shoot 😉
Where are you located?
The Studio is located in the Kawarau Village at the Hilton in Queenstown. 79 Peninsula Road. If you are in the area pop in and say hi!
Will I be able to share my photos on social media?
Yes, in fact we would love you to! and if you can tag us in them we would much appreciate it. We make it very easy to upload directly from your personal webpage to your favourite platform

My 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!
