stuartStuart Townsley – Photographer/Owner
Stuart has been a photographer since 1998 at several other well-established wedding and portrait studios. He founded Townsley Portraits in 2006, since then it has grown into a full service studio. Stuart loves creating “moments,” finding that perfect pose, helping families capture that fleeting shot that encapsulates the love they share and the joy they find in each other.

Stuart has two children a 13 year old daughter and 18 year old son. His daughter hopes to be a makeup artist when she grows up and they like hanging out and going to movies. You will often find him working out at the gym, running or biking. He would rather walk five miles than drive one (he hates driving).

Stuarts experience behind the camera means fast paced and fun photo sessions. His personality will make sure the kids are engaged and entertained which means great images. You can contact Stuart directly via EMAIL or by calling the office at 323.786.6019.
