Stephen Dent Photography

Welcome to the Stephen Dent Photography Website. The first of three Stephen Dent Photography Studios were established in late spring of 2001 and has been going strong ever since. All of our studios are located in California’s Southland: San Clemente, Del Mar, and Southern San Diego’s East Village with our newest onsite services and lessons, you can easily access Stephen Dent Photography without ever coming to our studios, though we do still recommend coming in and looking through our extensive photo archives to get a better idea of who Stephen Dent is and what types of pictures he can take.

Stephen Dent began photographing as a hobby in the late 1980s and as his passion for photography grew, so did his expertise and skill. The Stephen Dent Photography mission is to give its clients beautiful, unique imagery that lasts for generations and warms the heart.

With services ranging from infant, mother and child, and full family portraiture all the way to landscape photography and special occasion photography, Stephen Dent is sure to offer just what you are looking for in a photographer.

Stephen Dent now offers pregnancy photo shoots to capture your beauty and glow during pregnancy. Pregnancy photos are special shots that accentuate the full belly, and are usually done in black and white for a more dramatic effect. These pictures make great baby shower invitations and are perfect for thank you cards or announcements. Call and schedule your pregnancy photo session today!

Stephen Dent Photography and Studios accepts appointment only photography sessions. In this way, we are able to provide seven-day-a-week by request – so if your event, especially a wedding or birthday party happens to fall on the weekend, Stephen Dent is happy to assist you.
