To produce the images, Stuart uses only the very finest and latest camera and lighting equipment. Although primarily a digital based business, commercial clients also have the option to have their images captured on film using medium format (120 roll film) or large format (5”x4” sheet film) camera equipment.
Digital images are captured using full frame (36mmx24mm) cameras. All digital images are captured in RAW format and then subsequently edited and fully colour-corrected prior to converting to jpeg’s. As a matter of course, for all assignments captured digitally, the RAW and jpeg files are guaranteed to be kept and backed-up on our computer systems for a minimum of 12 months from the date they were taken.
Stuart personally oversees all aspects of the business, including the taking of all the photographs.
Although based in Shrewsbury, Stuart has been commissioned for assignments all over Shropshire and the United Kingdom. Stuart is available for assignments locally, nationally and internationally.
In addition to his website, images are available to view on Stuart’s Facebook page; www.facebook.com/stuarthayphotography and in the display albums that are available to view at his studio.
For clients’ peace of mind, Stuart has both public liability and professional indemnity insurance.
Stuart was our wedding photographer at Rowton Castle on 19/10/18, we decided to use Stuart after seeing his Facebook and website photos, he has done many weddings at Rowton so knows the venue well, and knows the best places to put you for the perfect photos. Stuart obviously has a passion for what he does and it shows in his photos. Everything was fully organised and explained beforehand, from the run down of the day to choice of albums and photoshop work. We had 4 young children included in our wedding party and Stuart had no problem getting their attention and quickly photographing them which is a mission in itself. Nothing was too much trouble for Stuart, and even with large groups to arrange before the sun moved he remained professional throughout. With everything else you have to plan for a wedding it’s such a relief to know that the photo section of the day goes without a glitch and I can honestly say that I can’t recommend Stuart highly enough for any special occasion, I can assure you the only trouble you will have is choosing from all the fantastic photos afterwards.

I would highly recommend Stuart. Our wedding photos were brilliant and we were thrilled with them. Stuart was friendly and professional from the first contact we had with him, always quick to respond and communicate with us. Stuart met with us prior to the wedding to talk through everything, it really put us at ease to know what would happen on the day and that everything was in safe hands. More...
Me & my husband tied the knot 28.08.18 at Rowton Castle and would highly recommend Stuart, from our first meeting together to receiving the photo was just perfect. Stuart is a man who clearly has great passion for what he does, always making us feel comfortable and confident that we were getting the photographs & memories when desired and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. If you looking for a photographer who can capture all your very special memories with ease and passion then Stuart hays photography is for you, nothing was too much trouble and everything was explained (including Stuart having a run down of exactly what photo was wanted) which took all the stress out of our wonderful day & we are forever grateful for this. The quality and efficiency of the photos are beyond anything we could have imagined the whole experience was perfect and again all thanks to Stuart. More...

Stuart has been absolutely fantastic from the very first time I contacted him, before, during and after the wedding. I was a little nervous before the wedding and Stuart was very happy to meet us. He is very easy to talk to and ran through everything we needed to know, he also answered many questions that we had. He replies very quickly to phone calls, messages and emails and can put your mind to rest about any worries you may have. Stuart has captured the most beautiful pictures of our wedding which we will cherish forever. I wouldn't hesitate at all in recommending Stuart to anyone!! Thank you so much Stuart for everything!!!

Thank you Stuart for our beautiful photos and for giving us such amazing reminders of our special day. XX
Super efficient, bang on great quality, superb value, direct and a super fast worker. Hear something generally in 24 hours from the photos being taken to seeing them on his site, and wears a great suit for the occasion.

We booked Stuart to capture our church wedding, and reception at Rowton Castle. The service we received both pre- and post-wedding, as well as on the day, was fantastic, and we are over the moon with the photos - Stuart has captured the wedding perfectly, and was so easy to work with on the day. We ended up with around 300 photos, which are all superb. Picking a selection for the album is the only difficult task!! More...
