Wedding Photography

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.

Although based in Canterbury, I offer professional wedding photography across Kent, London and the South East of England and pride myself on offering highly competitive prices; packages start from £500. Our packages can include:

A free consultation to discuss your needs
Part or full-day coverage
A free disc / memory stick of all the fantastic images from your day
Wedding albums
I am familiar with, and have photographed, many of the most popular venues in Kent including Cooling Castle Barn, the Old Kent Barn, Swingfield, High
Rocks in Tunbridge Wells and the Blazing Donkey near Sandwich. I am a recommended supplier for Winters Barns in Canterbury and the Little Silver
Hotel Tenterden.


Portrait Photography

Portrait Photography

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. After many years working as
a photographer, I am confident that I have the experience, skills and equipment to ensure this. My subjects, as you can tell from the testimonials, are often
surprised at how enjoyable the experience can be and thrilled with the end results.

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. After the photoshoot you will receive a private link to your gallery, displaying the edited images from the shoot. You can then purchase prints or high-resolution digital files.

Your portrait photoshoot includes:

Travel to a mutually agreed location
A private link to your gallery displaying the edited images from your shoot
The opportunity to purchase high-resolution digital files or prints
A 30-minute photoshoot starts at £30
Print prices start at £15

Customer Testimonials

We came to Stuart with a clear vision for how we wanted our photography to be for our wedding - we wanted lots of photos of people enjoying themselves and to not really know they are being captured on camera.

Stuart was fantastic at doing this and the pictures were great.

Everything was clear form the start of what he could offer and for what cost and we found his rates to be very competitive.

I would recommend him to friends and would certainly use Stuart again for special occasions.


I asked Stuart to take a family portrait of myself and my two teenage sons. As expected the "teenage" reaction was less than enthusiastic but Stuart put both boys at ease in no time. With a few props he added some fun into the session and within minutes we were relaxed and hardly conscious of the camera. The results were expertly shot and produced some really natural photos. Thanks Stuart!


We chose Stuart's Photography to do our photography for our wedding at Hempsted House in Sittingbourne. I would highly recommend Stuart to anyone who was looking for a photographer for their special occasion. He was very professional as well as being approachable and friendly making us feel very relaxed on the day. The photographs and album produced were of a very high standard and we are very pleased with Stuart and the work he put into capturing our special day, creating a lovely album that will always be treasured.


As I write this I'm about to view the beautiful photos Stuart took of our wedding for the 100th time. I highly recommend Stuart Deal. He was professional, friendly, competitively priced and very non intrusive, Our favouirte shots are the action shots taken of the ceromony; he's captured those moments perfectly and timelessly. You won't regret your choice.
