Make no mistake, this is not just another photography service, Detheo Photography is quite unique! Why? Because we genuinely build our services around you. By discussing and understand your needs, we can offer advice on how to get the best from your photographic experience, be that for your Wedding Photography, location based Photoshoot or for one of our Studio Sessions. We aspire to make our clients happy. Sounds like a cliche, but it is the truth, and it is what drives us.

Due to the varied nature of the commissions we receive, we often work with clients who require a discrete service, others need a photographer who they feel comfortable with and can understand the personal journey they have travelled. Whoever they are and whatever they require, we will do everything we can to ensure our service is right for them.

But it does not stop there. We work closely with our clients before, during and after a photoshoot ensuring they receive a professional service from start to finish.

With Deluxe Wall Displays and stunning Handcrafted Albums, right the way through to beautiful photo gifts such as glass placemats and coasters, our commitment to high quality is equally evident in our choice of suppliers and products.

Business Representative

Maria Michael

Owner / Photographer

Maria Michael is a professional photographer who has created a business based on her own set of values.
I wanted my company to maintain the same values that I held for every part of my life honesty, reliability, individuality and a sense of self. I have never aspired to fit any mould in life and I did not want my business to either. Rather than try to replicate what had already been done, I decided to create a service that was truly personalised, with the aim to making professional photography more accessible.

Since opening Detheo Photography has quickly developed a strong reputation for the bespoke services it provides and has grown from strength to strength.

Products & Services

Personalised Wedding Photography

We view each Wedding as unique, for they vary so much, from intimate registry offices through to traditional religious ceremonies. And just as diverse are our clients, from same sex couples to those from multi cultural heritage we are proud to be a part of them all. That is why our collections are completely bespoke, designed to specifically cater for each individual Wedding.

Our documentary style photography is designed to flow naturally with your day, capturing those special moments, without being intrusive. However, our flexibility enables us to adjust our style to suit the requirements our clients have for their Wedding Photography.


Specialist Pet Photography

It is only when one shares their life with animals, that they can truly understand the depth of emotion they evoke. Their presence touches lives in so many ways. Often pets provide comfort, laughter and a listening ear. They never criticise or question our judgements and their loyalty remains true till their last breath.

At Detheo Photography we understand this first hand and have refined our Pet Photography skills over the years to ensure our images capture an animals individual personality and the very essence of who they are. Our extensive experience has taught us that animals are often best captured when photographed within a natural environment, or at least one they are familiar with. As such the majority of Pet Photography sessions are held on location out in woods, the forest or even at the beach!


Lifestyle & Portrait

Capturing wonderful memories throughout life is so important, for as time moves on and life changes, nothing can take away the joy those memories bring. And photography is a key part of preserving those memories.

Our Lifestyle & Portrait Photography sessions are perfect for families, groups or individuals who are wanting a relaxed, free flowing, location based photoshoot. Each session brings with it beautiful backdrops, be it the Spring blooms, the stunning Summer sunsets or the frost in Winter.


Newborn & Baby

Ask any parent and they will tell you how quickly newborns change. During the first few days they seem so delicate, with their little fingers and tiny toes. At this stage they spend much of their time feeding and sleeping, and this is the perfect time for a Newborn Photography session. It gives us plenty of opportunity, whilst they are sleeping deeply, to carefully adjust them into position without fear of waking them.

But do not worry if your baby is a little older. Our Newborn & Baby Photography sessions are designed to cater for newborns and babies up to the age of 12 months and are held within the family home.

Customer Testimonials

The photo of Daisy-May, my little one eyed terrier is stunning. I have never seen such a fabulous photo. It made me cry. You certainly know how to bring out the best. Thank you so much


Maria is an award winning photographer whose work is absolutely gorgeous.
If you need a photographer in Hertfordshire then give her a shout today, you'll love her work.


Had a great day at the Beginners Photography Workshop, it was informal, relaxed and most of all fun! It's one thing to read about how light affects an image, it's another thing entirely to be guided by a professional when taking images to realise how much of an impact it has and what to look out for. I am very pleased I went, it has really opened my eyes to new possibilities. Thanks Maria
