My name is Stuart Deal and I have been taking photographs for as long as I can remember. Ever since I received my first SLR camera for my 12th birthday I have been hooked on the magic of photography. Four years later I photographed my first wedding and have since spent many years working as a wedding and portrait photographer as well taking photographs for my own pleasure. In fact, it was while I was living and travelling abroad – taking photographs wherever I went – that I decided to turn professional on my return to the UK.

In the late 90s I decided to ‘go digital’ and now use the latest Canon EOS 5d Mark 2 SLR (single lens reflex) camera. This allows me to create the highest quality images -but at a price that is affordable to my customers (I can take hundred of photos, then edit them down to a select few, as well as being able to send / provide images electronically).

I learn something new about photography every day and strive to create the most beautiful images I can, using the skills, light, locations and situations that are available to me. I live with my girlfriend Emma in the cathedral city of Canterbury and often work from home where I have a fully equipped portrait studio.

I am a qualified photographer with the British Institute of Professional Photography.

Stuart was the photographer at our wedding in December, and he was fantastic. He took all the photos we asked him to and some gorgeous natural shots of our guests, as well as some beautiful ones of us. He also looked into the surroundings to scope out where the best photos could be taken. We got all of our photos very quickly after the day and they are all stunning. We were very pleased with the fantastic service, the quality of the photos and the contact after the wedding. Would highly recommend.

From Our Website

Welcome to Stuart's Photography — the perfect place to start if you are looking for an experienced, professional-yet-informal photographer to capture the highlights of your wedding day or create a contemporary family portrait. My documentary style captures the essence of special moments, while my unobtrusive approach means you'll hardly know I'm there. Gorgeous images are the only memento. I photographed my first wedding at the tender age of 16 and, since then, have been lucky enough to photograph hundreds of happy couples on their wedding day.


My wedding photography prices start from 500. I'm happy to work with your requirements so that I can cover the whole day or the parts of your special day that matter most. If you have a specific request then you can contact me and I would be happy to discuss it further.


Creating a beautiful, natural portrait is a subtle art: you need a relaxed atmosphere and happy sitters. Whether it's based on the beach or woodland location, my images will capture your personality and mood. You won't be disappointed. A portrait photoshoot should be a comfortable and enjoyable experience where the subject's personality shines through. I offer stunning, informal portrait and family-portrait photography in Canterbury, Sandwich, Margate, Dover, Whitstable and most of East Kent. I prefer to shoot 'on location' at a nearby beach or in the Kent countryside.


Finding the right person to photograph your big day is essential; someone who can capture the essence and joy of this special occasion whilst offering a 'light touch' that ensures their presence goes almost unnoticed. I am available to photograph the full wedding day, including: bridal preparations; guests arriving; groomsmen; the ceremony; post-wedding shots; family shots; bride & groom; cake cutting; speeches; first dance and evening celebrations. If you would like family group shots, these can be discussed before the day so that I can make a list of approximately 6-8 'must- have' shots - therefore minimising disruption to your celebrations.
