About Us

K L Photographers is owned and run by Steve Rivoira & Nikki Hirst who took over the company in September 2014. Steve worked for Dennis & Delia for 25 years prior to taking on the company and Nikki has worked with KL since requesting her work experience with them in her last year at school. Nikki created her own business in 2005, allowing her own photography to grow, capturing weddings and portraits in a less formal way as traditionally taught. Nikki Pix Photography still runs alongside and Nikki has a well-established client list.

We would like to give a brief background of K L Photographers to help visitors to our site feel a certain knowledge of the partners, if you trust us with special photographic assignment’s or your precious archives it is good to have an insight into our¬†services.

Dennis Kay started his career as a trainee photographer with "R B and E D Richards of York" in Bootham after leaving school. He attended Kitson College of Photography in Leeds. Working for Richards of York before and after a break for National Service spent largely in Singapore. In 1963 he set up K L Photographers with his wife Delia and silent partner Lealman. They opened a shop and studio on Boroughbridge Road, expanding by offering professional printing services from their laboratory at Clifton Moor. They also had a shop at York District Hospital for a number of years.

K L Photographers have been recording images in the nicest possible way for over fifty years and will continue as a local independent retailer for the next fifty years with the support of its loyal customer base.

Although K L Photographers have moved premises in that time and have now changed hands, we have not changed our customer-based ethos. We aim to give good customer service and quality. All our production work is undertaken in house; customers find this very comforting when bringing in precious family history.

Wedding days are a must for hiring a photographer to professionally capture the day and Dennis loved sharing in these occasions as does Nikki now. Portraits are a great way to remember a special person in our lives, from birthdays and anniversaries; they can be of children, babies or graduation pictures. Pet portraiture is also very popular, from dogs to horses.

From Charity Balls, School proms, Golf club Dinners these are all opportunities for memorable photographs. A lot of this type of work is done with the camera work being free of charge. K L Photographers take their income from the photographs they sell, therefore quality is imperative. Although Nikki is the chief photographer we have other photographers available for any camera work that we are approached for.

So if you're looking for that special portrait shot of your loved ones, or perhaps an experienced photographer to come and capture a day of celebrations, contact K L Photographers for all further enquiries.
