Beautiful Photography from Alexa Poppe
My approach: I know how important it is to keep a great memory of your wedding and admire how different each of these special days are and how much effort you put in, no matter what sort of celebration you’re throwing. Creating the very best wedding images is all about feeling at ease with your photographer. So, it is important to me to set up a pre wedding consultation and create a strong personal relationship with my clients, to understand your style and requirements and make sure you have beautiful photographs that do justice to one of the most important days of your life. I thrive on capturing real-life, true emotions – no posing you in anyway if you don’t want to, but rather capturing natural events as they happen, so when you look at your photos you can re-live your day as it really was in a slection of candid photos and you don’t feel like you posed at a photo shoot all day.
I have experience that encompasses landscape, portrait, editorial and photojournalistic photography. My intrinsic understanding of composition and light and keen eye for portraiture will deliver the photographs you desire. Over the years I have travelled extensively and worked on numerous travel stories for national and international magazines. I love to uncover the heart of the places and people I visit with my images. This passion has flowed into my wedding photography and by mixing reportage/photojournalistic styles with my constant desire to produce fresh and candid images, I create wedding photos that capture those special moments, feelings and personalities both of you and your guests to tell the story of your wedding day. A memory of joy and happiness to keep forever and you can proudly present to your friends and family.
My background: It was on a family holidays to Greece where I was first inspired to take photos by my stepfathers passion for photography and the captivating light there. It was him who showed me the basics and I soon filled endless photo albums. Whilst studying in Hamburg nearly 20 years ago and during my design career I continued to capture images with my camera. Travelling to Southeast Asia and Australia in 2002 a passion for travel photography was ignited by the colours of these diverse cultures.Today
I live in Cornwall where I’m inspired by the scenery and outdoor lifestyle. I love to capture people, places and cultures. Eight years ago I set out on a new career in photojournalism and in recent years wedding photography. My background in design and my broad photographic experience will ensure that your images are of the highest professional standard. I also produce beautifully custom designed photography books / photo albums tailored to your personal style.
Thank you for looking through our portfolio.
My style is creative, relaxed and natural, candid, capturing your day uniquely – no posing if you don't want to, just unique images, capturing the emotions and events as they happen to tell the story of your day.
Coming from a photojournalistic and travel photography background , I love to meet people an visit beautiful and interesting places and most importantly I love telling stories in my photographs . Weddings are the perfect playground to combine both and I love the reward I'm getting when couples look back at their wedding album with a big smile on their face, a memory of joy and happiness to keep forever!
Try and meet your photographer in person. After all they are going to spend most of the day with you and it's not great to have someone at your wedding day you can't connect with. I also strongly suggest to look at images of a whole wedding ( like gust shots, speeches etc.), not just 'best of' shots, so you know what you will receive.

When we decided to get married in Cornwall, we searched for photographers in the area and luckily found Alexa! We loved her relaxed, natural and creative style instantly – and felt that she would capture our Cornish wedding perfectly. She was friendly and professional from the outset, as well as brilliant on the day. We got the feeling that Alexa enjoyed it as much as we did! She captured our wedding beautifully – we had a misty Cornish day and she got some stunning beach shots. We didn’t have to wait long to see a couple of teaser photos and then a few weeks later we received a USB stick with all of our photographs in both colour and black and white – a really nice touch. Since then we’ve had nothing but praise for our photos and can’t thank Alexa enough. We would definitely recommend her!
Alexa was absolutely fantastic! We honestly can't recommend her enough! Personally for us, getting the right photographer was one of the most important aspects when planning as the wedding goes by in such a flash and your photos are your lasting memory of your day- you'll have them forever! We were not disappointed! Our photos were exactly what we wanted with a gorgeous balance between natural shots and group shots. The group shots were executed perfectly too! I have memories from weddings in the past of the group shots taking a long time and faffing around getting people in specific places. Alexa was not like this at all, it all ran so smoothly and swiftly leaving us plenty of time to enjoy the rest of the day and as a result our whole schedule ran to time too and the result of the photos- perfect! It is clear that Alexa loves her job and takes great pride in her work, which didn't stop after our wedding day. We absolutely loved her blog on our wedding a few days later and seeing some gorgeous preview photos- made us feel very special, thank you! What's more, the personal touch of her beautifully engraved memory stick containing the finished photos- which we didn't have to wait long for at all, only a couple of weeks- was the icing on cake!
Alexa was absolutely fantastic right from the very first email! We were planning an elopement wedding in Cornwall (we live 4 hours away!). Alexa was so much fun, very professional and she captured the most beautiful photos of our wedding day. We highly recommend Alexa to anyone who is looking for a wedding photographer, you will not be disappointed! x
Alexa is an amazing photographer, she takes beautiful photos that look really natural and has a great eye for unusual shots. We were really happy with how our wedding photos turned out. She was a pleasure to work with too, very prompt and professional. Highly recommended!
Thank you so much Alexa! Our pictures of our special day are exactly what we were hoping for and more! Alexa was brilliant on the day, very warm and friendly, made us feel so relaxed. Alexa is always quick to respond to emails and our pictures were with us just one month after our wedding day. Fantastic! 5 out of 5!
Alexa captured our day perfectly. The shots she took were exactly as we had hoped, friends and family all having fun with the beauty and vibrancy of The Eden Project shining through. Highly recommend Alexas safe pair of hands.
From the first time we met, through the engagement photo shoot, wedding prep and the day itself we've loved having Alexa on board with our wedding! She has made it so much fun and so incredibly relaxed - for a bride that hates having her photo taken this was essential. We absolutely love our wedding photos and they really reflect what an exciting and happy day we had. Alexa was great fun to have at the day and we couldn't recommend her highly enough. Thank you Alexa!!!
Me, my husband and our 18 month old son have just gotten back from our elopement in st Austell, and we hired Alexa to do the photos, she was lovely on the day and made us all feel relaxed, she had previous experience of our venue so she knew which shots would look good, and then edited our beautiful photos quickly and got them sent out to us a week later! She took some lovely photos, especially of our son!! Would defiantly recommend her,
We recently got married in Portreath in Cornwall. Alexa made our day even more special with her positive approach, her knowledge of the area and her persistence to find the best shots. Although our special day was wet Alexa's graft and hard work gave us the photo's we wanted and captured every great moment of our special day. Thanks a mil Alexa, I'd recommend you highly.
Thank you so, so, SO much for our beautiful photos! We absolutely love them all! We received them on Tuesday which was so quick and so kind of you to get them to us for Christmas. They are the perfect reminder of our perfect day and we will treasure them forever.
You were an absolute pleasure to have at our wedding and we are so grateful for everything that you have done for us. We all hope you have a fantastic Christmas.
Vicky (and all of the Teehan and Roberts family) xx
