“The service we have received from PhotoLife has always been excellent. Always well prepared, excellent communication and prompt and efficient on the day. No complaints from this end!”

“I would just like to pass on how happy we have been with our photos. The quality has been fantastic especially the way that you managed to accommodate our wishes for the class photos to be a little different to the traditional style”

Joanne Levey

“Our school has used PhotoLife for many years and we value the relationship we have developed with them. Although they have grown as a company, they remain focused on family, and personalising the service they provide to meet the needs of our school. Their staff are highly professional and skilled in dealing with school environments – we appreciated their flexibility and good-humoured approach during our recent photo day!

PhotoLife enable us to get along with our day-to-day work, and provide systems for ordering and payment which are simple and clear for our parents. There is no additional work involved for our administration team – and we know the final product is always of a fantastic standard”

Ian Dickinson

“Wanted to let you know that we were very pleased with Peter, Angela, Debbie and the 2 other ladies, with a smooth, fun day of photos yesterday. I got lots of positive comments from teachers and some parents. The day seemed to go very smoothly and we completed what we thought we would. Your staff were very flexible with regards to lack of car parking around our school and with our classrooms. Thank you, we look forward to seeing the team again”

“First, let me totally compliment the photographers that took our recent portrait photos. Their patience with our students was very commendable and this shows in the very pleasing result of the photos. Staff and parents (and students) are very complementary. We acknowledge that our students are not the easiest to work with”

Chris Howlett

“Thank you very much for the commission – greatly appreciated and it will be used to part-fund an activity our students are having nearer the end of the year at Living Springs to mark the school’s closure. I would just like to say thank you to all the PhotoLife Staff that we have been involved with over several years, sadly as I said we are closing at the end of this year and we have been very privileged to have been able to work alongside wonderful people such as yourselves. Please pass my thanks on to all your team on behalf of the St Paul’s staff – photo day has always been so easy”

Mary Skilton


“We would like to thank your team for an absolutely great day yesterday. Everyone was impressed with the lovely team of people working on the day and how beautifully the students were handled. The excellent organisation and smooth running goes without saying

Once again, many thanks and please pass on our appreciation to the team for their hard work and making the day so easy for us”

Margaret Lister

“A big shout out to PhotoLife Studios for the excellent job they did for Orewa College last week with our Form Class and ID photographs. Having tried a different provider last year, it is good to return to the professionalism that PhotoLife Studios and their photographers have displayed. Not only did it all run to schedule (not an easy task with over 2,000 students), the students and teachers have commented on how smoothly it went and what great guys they were dealing with.

Miss Cyra who is in charge of the Student Reception has been incredibly impressed by PhotoLife Studios and is very pleased at their return to providing this service to Orewa College. It has certainly made Miss Cyra’s job easier.

We are sure the students and parents will also appreciate the quality of the photographs they will be receiving this year”

Mr M Quigley (Associate Principal)


“Peachgrove Intermediate are delighted that our “Thumbs Up for NZAIMS” photo won the Photo Competition at this year’s NZAIMS Games. It capped a great week for us. Our girls are very keen on posing for shots as well as taking them. Thank you for sponsoring the competition and donating the great camera as a prize. You will see us in action at NZAIMS next year using the camera. Once again, thank you for the camera. The girls are delighted to have it”

“PhotoLife has been our provider of school photography services over the past ten years. We have always found them to be a highly reputable company providing an excellent standard of photography.”

Richard Calderwood

“At Diocesan School for Girls we enlist the services of PhotoLife to provide our ID cards, photo packs, class and other group photos. We have always had excellent service from them, from the provision of photographers to fit in with our timetable, right down to the quick return of completed orders. The photos are of a very high standard and their friendly staff are always prepared to adapt to our needs with ordering systems etc. We have also used PhotoLife to take photos for special occasions ie the School Centennial celebrations in 2003, the 100 year photo with every student and staff member in the photo, the Year 13 annual photo. I have no hesitation in endorsing this company.”

Margaret van Meeuween (Assistant Principal School Operations)
