Creating treasured memories for generations to come
Dean Hartwell Photography is run by the husband and wife team of Dean and Jenny from their professional photographic studio located in a converted barn in the village of Harringworth on the Rutland/Northamptonshire border. We’re dedicated to capturing superb quality portraits of your family and providing coverage of it’s once in a lifetime events.
Priceless memories from a professional photographic studio
We think you’ll agree memories are priceless, which is why most people when asked what possession they would save from a house fire, choose their family photo albums. At Dean Hartwell Photography we capture some fantastic memories for you and your family either in our studio or on location. Because we understand the value of memories, we only use the highest quality suppliers for all our finishing touches such as books, albums, framed prints and canvasses so you can rest assured that they will last a lifetime.
Dean has a contemporary take for portraiture both in the studio and on location with the emphasis being on capturing those special moments whilst having some fun. After all the more fun you have the more relaxed you’ll be and the more opportunities there’ll be to capture you at your best.
For weddings he has a reportage style, capturing the key moments, the more fleeting ones and all those details that you’ve painstakingly organised. He works in an unobtrusive and relaxed way but will also shoot some posed images that you’ll want to show off. Most of all Dean never forgets it’s the bride and grooms special day and not a photoshoot.
While we’re based in the charming village of Harringworth, Northamptonshire, we undertake commissions all across the East and West Midlands including: Leicestershire, Rutland, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire as well as Warwickshire and Cambridgeshire. However, we’ll readily travel further afield, both nationally and internationally.
We kindly ask that you to make an appointment to visit us so that we can organise a time which doesn’t clash with one of our shoots. We’d hate you to waste your time if we are engaged with other clients.

Formally trained as a photographer more years ago than he cares to remember, Dean has had a lifelong passion for photography and has even had a stint as an aerial photographer on an international arms control treaty. With his light hearted nature, he is able to get along with anyone and put a smile on their face; just the thing you need from a photographer! He’s an Associate member of the Royal Photographic Society and for your peace of mind Dean has passed an enhanced CRB check.
Jenny is in charge of organising the business side of things, which means that she knows spreadsheets inside out. Happily Jenny doesn’t just sit in front of a computer all day, she’s also a willing assistant and an expert in holding a reflector or moving lights around the studio.
