A lovely gentleman with amazing skills. Our experience was very relaxing, the baby was very happy and enjoyed herself too. The results were incredibly flattering and really captured our love as a family. Easily the most talented photographer in London. Would not hesitate to travel to use this courteous and professional family business again.

I had my bump-to-baby photo-shoots with Danny. And now I think that it was the great luck that we choose him to capture these our special moments. It seems that Danny has custom solutions to each his client. Under his guidance I felt myself very pretty and sexy (on my 8th month of my pregnancy!) and I really was pretty and sexy on his photos. Our second – the whole family – photo-shoot also was fabulous experience: Danny gets on well with little babies. Special appreciation to make-up masters, they perform magic! So the only problem – all Danny’s photos are so cool, so it’s hard (if it’s not impossible!) to choose. I’ve already recommended Danny to all my friends, he is the best!

Fantastic Service I bought a boudoir session for my fiance as a Valentines present this year which included full hair and make up, photo shoot and a print. I was quite nervous as I had not done anything like this before and my fiance was slightly concerned that I was being photographed by a male photographer. However as soon as we met Danny we both felt completely at ease and were extremely impressed with his professionalism, creative ideas and thorough job. I was very pleased with my hair and make-up, courtesy of Curtis and his skill showed in the photographs – I hardly recognised myself. The whole shoot was extremely enjoyable, Danny had some great ideas and allowed both my fiance and I to give suggestions as he worked hard to achieve the shots that we wanted. He took hundreds of pictures which meant that it was hard to pick our favourites in the viewing session; we ended up buying two large prints and a selection of smaller ones as we were so thrilled! On a whole we couldn’t have been more pleased with the session and the final photographs, I was comfortable throughout and would not hesitate to recommend Danny’s work.  Many thanks,  Anna Vassallo   See Anna’s review on Virgin’s site below!

Hi Danny & Genieva,

Angela **** here. Just wanted you to know that we got the pictures home yesterday and have already put all of them up. I am very pleased with them all and actually  can’t stop looking at them. We bought some new curtains for our bedroom and now, combined with the pictures, we have a modern bedroom that already looks amazing even though we’ve not finished decorating. David has the sexiest one of me in the study and I would be happy to display it in the bedroom as well.

The story with the pictures has been a tumultuous one that has ended very well. David agreed that even he found it shocking looking at himself at first but has also come to like it.  I am VERY ;-) pleased that I have some pictures of him as well, thanks for letting him have a go too. It has made it an even kilter and I get as much enjoyment as he does out of them. Thoroughly recommend a couples photo shoot.

The photoshoot was great fun and I will remember that summers day fondly. I am not used to spending that kind of money but it is definitely worth it. You can share this message and my story to other people who are uncertain.

Look forward to speaking with you soon. Have a great day.

Angela  Xx

I had a great time, working with a fabulous man, made me feel very comfortable. Great time and the most amazing results!    Adell Seshie  xxx
Danny is an amazing photographer, I have twins that both need 6month updated photos for their spotlight page. The first time Danny did them I had so many fantastic shots to choose from so I use him all the time now. He is great with the kids and they love going to the studio to have a session and to locations with him. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a perfect photo. Amanda Kandecore Xxxxx

I was previously sceptical of attending photo studios for fear of being pressured into purchasing extortionately high priced photographs .

But I am delighted that my son persuaded me to go to Danny’s studios for a family sitting. He and his wife are the epitome of warmth, friendliness and genuineness! I warmed to them both instantly and thoroughly enjoyed posing with my family, then going for the viewing. I felt at ease throughout and was not once pressured or coerced into buying what I did not want to!

I highly recommend this personable and really professional service to anyone looking for excellence, efficiency and high quality photographs – memories that will last a lifetime… I will ensure that my sons go there for their wedding photos- hopefully when they meet Mrs Right!!

Whenever I need a pick me moment I do a photoshoot. So this time I got my Gourmet Society vouchers and headed to Danny DaCosta and transformed into a goddess. The make up artist was awesome, the photographer was fantastic, the result was phenomenal. I looked and felt divine.

Amazing experience, loved having a Make Up artist doing my Make Up and was able to change my look half way through my shoot to get 2 different looks. The end result was great. Love the fact that I was able to go through all the images and chose my final prints. Danny and Gevena were so patient and accomodating. Looking forward to my next session. Jennifer Thomas
It was a great doing a shoot with Danny – the prints were fab! I would definately do another shoot. Charlotte Price
Thanks so much Danny for the photographs of my 40th milestone celebration. As I have used Danny’s services before the great quality of the photographs were not a surprise. Danny helped me to feel really relaxed and comfortable as I don’t normally like my picture being taken, however it turned out to be a really enjoyable experience and I looked like a super star! I will definitely recommend Danny to my friends Karen Edwards
I would travel across the globe to have my photos taken by Danny Dacosta because he is the very best These days Image is everything – no one is able to make me look more glamorous and younger than he does.   Beverly East Washington D.C.

He turns you into a professional model and makes you feel relaxed and comfortable, posing for the camera effortlessly. The pictures came out like I’d paid a million pounds for them.

Had a brilliant time on this photoshoot in April. The Herne Hill studio is easy to access, and Danny and the rest of the team were so welcoming, delivering wow-factor results in terms of hair, makeup and the photos themselves. They were friendly and mindful of the results I wanted to achieve during the shoot, talking to me about what I wanted to do and the kind of look I was after. Couldn’t be more pleased with the results and looking forward to gifting the photos to my husband 🙂

Danny was the epitome of a professional, caring and a true craftsman at work. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our photography session at Danny’s studio. I would always highly recommend Danny for his craftsmanship. He captured the essence of me @40 with my two adorable sons. “Pictures that tell our story”. Needless to say Geneva made us feel more than welcome throughout the course of the day. If you want professionalism, capturing the soul Danny D is the man! Thank you always.
