About

Welcome, My name is Scott, a Kent based wedding photographer living in Whitstable. I specialise in a documentary/reportage style of photography, which means I focus on capturing real, honest, raw emotion throughout your whole wedding day. I do not believe a wedding should be one long photoshoot! It should be celebrated with festivity and excitement. Memories will be created and then re-lived through photography, that is why it is so important to remember the day just how it was!

Over the 8 years of being a full-time wedding photographer, and the 200+ weddings I have shot, my photography style has been described by clients and guests as relaxed, candid, unobtrusive, genuine and real. I have been told many times I am like a ninja with a camera, as I capture little moments that nobody even realised I was paying attention to.

I cover weddings across the whole of Kent and the Southeast including Whitstable, Canterbury, Maidstone, Ashford, Tunbridge Wells, London pretty much everywhere. I often travel to other parts of the UK and abroad to photograph weddings. Enquire and I can give you a bespoke quote.

Services offered

My pricing for wedding photography ranges from £1300 - £2700, with the majority of my couples booking me for a full-day coverage package for roughly £1750. I generally have 4 wedding photography packages. Up-to-date pricing can be found on my website, but I find roughly 40% of my couples require a bespoke pricing package, so please drop me an email with your wedding plans and requirements.

My most popular package is a full day of coverage starting with the morning preparation and going all the way through to just after the first dance. The package price can be reduced if your wedding is a shorter celebration requiring fewer working hours.

    Best photographer ever!

    Scott what can I say… you were outstanding from start to finish, so calm, relaxed and exactly what we were looking for in someone to capture our special day. You went above and beyond to capture stunning natural photos, often when we didn’t even realise you were taking them! If you are looking for a photographer who is fun, friendly and takes amazing in the moment shots, this is your man. He even helped me to hook up my bustle when the bridesmaids couldn’t! Highly recommend, thank you again Scott for capturing our day so perfectly.

    Scott Kendall Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much for the review Katie. It was such a pleasure to photograph and be apart of your wedding at The Secret Garden. Also thanks to introducing me to the whiskey glover. Now a new favourite when I'm editing hard late into the night.

    Amazing - highly recommend!

    Scott has been amazing - start to finish! When we first met him online, he was professional and friendly. Throughout the booking process, he has always been very efficient at responding to emails and keeping us updated.

    We met Scott for a trial shoot, as my now husband and I aren’t very comfortable in front of a camera. Scott was really friendly and gave us some direction/ideas but made it all feel really natural which resulted in some great shots! I also caught him taking a sneaky few when we weren’t looking, which again is something I really appreciate as I don’t like posed photos.

    On the day of the wedding Scott was again great! He was helping out with the preparation, knew when to get out of the way when us girls were flapping to get ready and again just seamlessly fitted in and didn’t make anyone feel awkward. Some guests even asked me how I knew him and assumed he was a friend.

    His pictures are amazing and have really captured the spirit of the day and all the little details that other people would miss. His photo booth also went down very well and we have some amazing photos from this too! We got the photos in a timely manner (just longer than a week) after the wedding, which is ideal as everyone is eager to see them.

    Would highly recommend! Thanks so much Scott!

    Hannah and Michael, Thank you so much for the review. It was such a pleasure to be a part of and photograph your wedding at Lympne castle. It was a great wedding!
    I wish you both all the best.

    Best wedding photographer.

    If you want the best wedding photos, Scotts your man! The entire process was smooth and efficient from start to finish. Throughout he was professional, calm, friendly, and patient. Even though it was a blistering cold day Scott trooped on enthusiastically and without complaint. To top it all off he took beautiful, heartwarming photos that captured this special day perfectly. Thank you Scott for making this day even more memorable. I can not recommend him highly enough.

    Scott Kendall Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much for the review Samaher. It was such a pleasure to photograph yours and Mohamed's wedding celebration at The Orangery. So many beautiful moments and memories to remember.
    I wish you both all the best in your future endeavours together.

    STOP! Look no further for your photographer

    What can we say about Scott that has not already been said??
    Scott was amazing from first quoting and meeting to after the wedding and more. Both myself and my wife were not keen on having cameras pointed at us and being dragged everywhere for pictures on our special day which was one of the best things about Scott, it was like having a friend around (when you knew he was there, often you had no idea) He made us feel so relaxed and at ease. He knew our venue well so knew all the best places to capture shots we had spoken about, he is very creative and also open to ideas, including playground pirate ship photos and pumpkin head brides (yes those really happened!) All of our guests commented on how lovely Scott was and how friendly he is, not pushy to have photos like some photographers can be.
    Scott captured everything about our day perfectly and we could not be happier with our decision to ask Scott to capture our day. The pictures and edits are second to none and we can't stop looking at them.
    If you are looking for a photographer, please do not look any further, it will be the best decision you make booking Scott!!
    Thank you so much Scott, love Mrs and Mrs Picton-Owen

    Scott Kendall Photography's reply:

    Dear Dani and Donna. Thank you so much for this fantastic review. I think I will have to add it to my website. Your wedding was one of my highlights of the year, so much fun and excitement, and of course so many great moments to capture.
    I wish you both and of course Alice a happy live together.

    You won't regret booking Scott for your wedding

    We couldn't recommend Scott highly enough following his amazing service as our wedding photographer. Scott was an absolute pleasure to work with and so easy going from the start, he made us feel so at ease and provided invaluable advice regarding timings etc. which made our day run so smoothly. We particularly wanted Scott's documentary style for our wedding and certainly were not disappointed, the quality of Scott's images are amazing and he captured moments that we feel no one else would of done. Thank you Scott!!

    Scott Kendall Photography's reply:

    Thank you both so much for the lovely review. We got some great shots on the day. I am so pleased.
    I wish you both all the best

    Best wedding photographer

    From start to finish Scott was fantastic. He was so organised and kept in touch throughout the organising process and was really responsive to messages, even giving us help on things like whether or not to wear our glasses on the day (we did and the anti glare on the lenses didn’t affect the photos at all).
    On our wedding day Scott made everyone feel at ease, he managed to get all the shots that we had asked for without being pushy and took plenty of photos that we didn’t even know we wanted. Scott somehow managed to be everywhere and nowhere, we have no idea how he did it but has managed to take photos of multiple different moments that we are convinced were happening at the same time, he must be magic!
    Scott got the first set of photos back to us the day after the wedding and the whole set (over 400) in just a few weeks. We are so grateful to him for all of his work and the memories that he captured, I wouldn’t hesitate for a second in recommending him as your wedding photographer.

    Thanks ever so much for the wonderful review Kimberley. I absolutely loved photographing your wedding at the Secret Garden. So many fun moments to capture.
    I wish you both all the best.

    Absolutely brilliant

    We couldn't be happier with the service Scott provided us on our wedding day. Right from the start he was incredibly approachable and made us feel really relaxed. We aren't local to Scott, so conducted our discussions via zoom, which worked out really well. On the day Scott was really calm, which helped relax both of us. The photographs he took were amazing. What we particularly loved were the natural shots he took of everyone as we went through the day. He really managed to capture the atmosphere to a tee. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Scott for your wedding photography.

    Thank you very much for the review Peter. I wish you both a happy marriage together.

    5 Star Service - Absolutely Brilliant!

    Scott was attentive, relaxed, organised & professional - simply brilliant! He made everyone feel at ease and photographed the formal shots quickly, without fuss. He was fantastic throughout the initial contact stages, meetings, on the day itself and afterwards when we needed to contact regarding prints and albums. Scott slotted into the day perfectly, not drawing attention but making sure everyone felt relaxed and comfortable being photographed. He is a friendly, professional photographer who gave advice and guidance in a subtle manner and helped the day to flow without any issues. The bridal party and guests commented on how fantastic he was throughout the day and how helpful he had been with suggestions - even tips or advice that wasn’t necessarily linked to the photographs! Scott is highly recommended and we couldn’t have asked for any more from him!

    Wonderful day - Thank you Scott!

    We were so pleased that Scott was able to be our wedding photographer, he was just amazing! His photos speak for themselves, they are just stunning, imaginative and creative. He captured the happiness and energy of our day so perfectly, not missing a moment. He was also a wonderful person to have around, just so friendly and upbeat. Scott made use feel completely comfortable from the moment we met him and definitely felt more like a friend at our wedding!

    We absolutely love the photos and every time we look at them we relive our fantastic day. We would 100% recommend. Thanks so much Scott!

    Andy and Becky

    Best Photographer Book Scott he is awesome

    We met Scott a year before our wedding and loved his relaxed - friendly approach. We are blown away by how good the photos are. He was the talking point of the wedding everyone saying he just blended in and what a great guy he was. He has the most amazing eye and got lots of natural photos which we will treasure forever. He is also brilliant with dogs we had 2 at the wedding and we could have a dog album too 🥰 thanks Scott I think you already have 1 couple from our wedding who want to book for 2023 as they were so impressed! Thanks Hannah and Nick

    Scott Kendall Photography's reply:

    Thank you so so much for the review Hannah. Your wedding day at The East Quay Venue was fantastic. So many memorable moments, and It was such a pleasure to be apart of and photograph. I particular enjoyed photographing the oyster easting haha.

    Scott was excellent all the way throughout with communication, from our first contact, till now.
    He made the day effortless and easy, even through we were maybe apprehensive about the photography before hand.
    We have the most amazing photos and the best memories of our day. Thank you Scott, we couldn't of asked for more.

    Fantastic Photographer!!

    Scott was amazing from the moment we booked him until 9pm on our wedding night. Scott was flexible throughout the pandemic with our many re-bookings reassuring us that he would accommodate us. We met Scott at our venue prior to the wedding in August 2021 and went through various options and how the day would work with our photos. Scott was bloody fantastic on our wedding day so incredibly helpful , fun, friendly and produced the most amazing photo’s. Totally recommend Scott for your wedding photos - nice touch too that Scott allows you to make monthly instalments which helps with those big wedding costs!

    Amazing wedding photographer!

    We lost our original photographer two months before our wedding date but couldn’t be happier that we found Scott to take our photos instead. He was super organised in the run up to the date and always really responsive. On the day he was so friendly to us and all our guests and knew exactly where to be at all times to capture the best moments. The sneak peak of 30 or so photos he sends through the day after your wedding is such a nice surprise and the photos themselves were absolutely amazing! Would 100% recommend Scott for your wedding!!

    Cannot recommend highly enough!

    Scott absolutely smashed our wedding photography, he was totally approachable from day one, really receptive to our ideas, enthusiastic and so understanding regarding the problems surrounding rearranging our big day owing to Covid-19.

    The pictures he took were superb - and he helped make the most of the thunder, lightening and absolute monsoon we had to deal with on the day! All of our guests commented on what a nice guy he was as well and he made them all feel at ease.

    Post wedding, we've also been really impressed with how professional and well presented the photos and USB have been.

    If you're looking for a great photographer who is fantastic value for money, look no further than Scott. Cheers mate!

    Hi Verity and Gary.
    Thank you so much for this review. Your wedding was a proper epic day, so many amazing moments and memories, despite the torrential rain which honestly only made it more memorable.
    I hope I get to photograph more weddings like yours in the future.

    I wish you both all the best
