Who is Photography For Love?

%filenameWell you can find out much about us soon, as we are currently busy creating you a video about us and what we do, but until then let us tell you who we are…

Originally called “Stancliffe Studios”, we are a team dedicated to recording all of life’s special memories.

The main team is Karl & Sue, who have know each other since Secondary School, way back when!  So you could say we know each other pretty well, but more importantly we are wedding photographers through and through. We’ve captured over 400 weddings since 2006 when we turned full-time.  We’ve had the pleasure of capturing so many amazing weddings including iconic MP’s, footballers and the odd crazy Italian or two.

Most of all, we are a fun loving, slightly daft couple, who love nothing more than meeting with other couples, getting to know them and their special day in detail, and then capturing that in a fresh, natural and contemporary way.

Want to know more, then let us know and we can soon organise a glass of wine, a beer, or more likely for Karl, a cuppa! Well he is a true Yorkshire Man. Why don’t you drop us a line and tell us your story?

What Makes Us Different?

I won’t give you a long boring speech about why we are different, as we feel our testimonials tell you much better then we ever good. However here are thing they don’t say:

  • We have captured over 400 weddings since starting over a decade ago.
  • In addition to the weddings, over the last 10 years we have also captured some amazing memories including HRH the Queen & Prince Philip, the birth of a new born baby (seriously – it was amazing!), created publicity poster for Derby Royal Theatre, helped to capture and raise money for a cancer charities, photographed 5 rider cup captains in one night, documented special events for Virgin and Asda and the list goes on.
  • And it goes without saying, but we LOVE what we do, and give each and every wedding the personalised treatment it deserves.

Here what are couples think of us:

Just a little note to say thank you for all your hard work with capturing our special day! We absolutely love our pictures, they are better than we could have ever imagined!

We are so soooo pleased we chose Stancliffe Studios to do our wedding photos, not only did we gain the most beautiful memories of our special day, we gained friends who will now help us capture memories throughout our lives. Can't wait for when we decide to start a family to have bump, baby photos and family portraits with you. Thank you sooooo much.

The whole day went so fast and I didn’t get the chance to thank you properly. The pictures are stunning and you were practically anonymous the whole day so thanks again.

Lee & Nicola

/ Wentworth Church & Tankersley Manor, Barnsley, South Yorkshire

Karl, well what can i say.... I cannot thank you and your team enough for what you did at our wedding on Saturday... I am gobsmacked at the amount of effort and work you all put into making our day one to remember.. I can honestly say hand on heart that you turned our day into a fairytale wedding.. The slideshow at night was out of this world and I've had so many people comment on how FANTASTIC the photographs were. The photo booth at night finished it off perfectly, we've never laughed so much.. Can't wait to come and see the rest.... Once again thank you so much... From one proud and happy couple.

Kerry & Kirsty

/ Clumber Park Hotel, Worksop, Nottinghamshire

Thank you so much Karl & Hugh for sharing the most magical fairytale day of our lives with us! You were like part of the family and we loved having your company.

Karl & Rebecca

/ Forever Green, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire

The album is awesome Karl! Thanks! I've only looked through it a few times!! Very proudly showed it off to anyone that stops still long enough.

Craig & Melanie

/ West End Golf Club, Halifax, West Yorkshire

I have never known a person be so right for the job that they do - you are incredibly gifted.

Shaun & Gemma

/ St Barnabas Church, Nottinghamshire & Clumber Park Hotel, Worksop Nottinghamshire

I just wanted to let you know we received the albums today. Thank you so much for all your hard work they look amazing and the dvd is perfect. I loved going through them today and each time I do I notice something different, they are brilliant – we can’t wait to get round the family and friends over the next few days to show them off. Thanks again for everything on the day and being so patient and accommodating in getting the albums done. I would happily recommend you and hope that we will have an occasion for you to cover again soon! Thanks again.

Gavin & Sarah

/ Blackbrook House, Belper, Derbyshire

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the beautiful album you have produced for Gavin and myself. It captures the day so well, and everyone we have shown it to so far have been amazed at its originality and quality. It's absolutely stunning, and we can't stop looking at it! We are so pleased that we chose you for our wedding photographers. We knew as soon as we met you that you would fit in to our day so well. You may be more expensive than some of the other photographers we had looked at, but it's about so much more than just taking photos on the day, and you are unmatched on quality and dedication. You were a friendly face to a stressed out bride, you knew just how to deal with all of the guests to get the best pictures, you made sure the day ran smoothly, and I didn't worry about the time once during the day, which is unheard of for me! The only downside to collecting our album from you last week, was that Gavin and I drove away feeling like it was the end of a friendship rather than a business deal! When we consider getting some portrait photos in the future, you will be our first phone call.

Tom & Jessica

/ Hassop Hall, Bakewell, Derbyshire

Just an email to let you know how pleased we are with the album, it really is superb and something really impressive to show off to our family and friends!!. The DVD slideshow you have done is really out of this world, it is truly brilliant. We had recently been wishing we had got a video of the day BUT now we have seen this, we are no longer bothered, it is better than any video!! Brilliant.

Jane & Chris

/ Oulton Hall, West Yorkshire

Thank you for the amazing pictures you took on our wedding day, everyone commented on how professional, friendly and attentive you were throughout the day. Our friends and family have also said how amazed they were when they saw the photos and we absolutely love them. We can't wait to see the album.

Liv & Mark

/ The Maynard, Grindleford, Derbyshire

Thank you so much. you have been an absolutely brilliant doing our photos for our wedding - you captured every bit of the day magnificently! You also provided support and were a great wedding planner, when the girls and me were faffing about in the bridal suite. You calmed my nerves too :o) we love the photos and will treasure them. Lots of love. xxx

Skye & Liam - Skye's Mum

/ North Notts Arena, Worksop

I would just like to say what a fantastic day we had on Saturday and the day was made even better by all your help and organisation (i.e me forgetting the cake!) and you running around and taking it to the venue for me. Love your professionalism for exceeding anything I have never seen in any photographer ever and I can see why Skye and Liam put the utmost trust in you, felt like we had known you for years by the end of the day. Photos are excellent! thanks again.
