Hi, I'm Alexa

Award winning reportage/documentary style wedding photography

My style is reportage/documentary wedding photography. 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 selection of candid photos and you don’t feel like you posed at a photo shoot all day.
I come from a photojournalistic background and 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 and emotions both of you and your guests to tell the story of your wedding day.

I’m happy enough to live in Cornwall where I’m inspired by the scenery and outdoor lifestyle and have the opportunity to visit some incredible locations on my doorstep.

My packages are flexible to meet your needs. I offer shorter coverages for elopements or small weddings as well as full day packages from bridal preparations all the way through to your first dance and beyond. I also produce beautifully custom designed photography books / photo albums tailored to your personal style.

Thank you for looking through our portfolio.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me for further details on packages and prices. I’m looking forward to hearing all about your wedding day!

How would you describe your style?

My style is creative, relaxed and natural, candid, capturing your day uniquely – no posing if you don't want to, just candid images, capturing the emotions and events as they happen to tell the story of your day.

What do you love about weddings?

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!

Advice for couples planning their wedding?

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.

Incredibly talented!

Can’t thank Alexa enough for our incredible photographs!!! They are better than we could have ever imagined!
She has captured the whole day perfectly and got photographs of everything we asked for.
Alexa made us feel at ease and was a lovely person to have with us on our wedding day. She worked well alongside our videographer also.
We will treasure these photographs forever and we will always be so grateful for our special memories to have been captured so beautifully by Alexa.
Thank you thank you thank you.

Perfect relaxed photos

We really wanted candid, relaxed photos of our day and after doing some research Alexa seemed to be the photographer for us.

We had our marquee in our garden so Alexa came up beforehand to find photo spots with us and come up with ideas. This put us at ease that we would get some lovely couple shots of the two of us.

The photos are even better than we could have imagined and we still find ourselves looking through them on a weekly basis. Alexa got the vibe of the wedding completely and got some absolutely priceless photos we will cherish forever.

Thank you Alexa.

Perfectly captured the day

Alexa was brilliant, she really captured the atmosphere of the day and worked hard to get some good couple shots in the limited time we had (due to a later ceremony and a tight timeline).

We didn’t live locally to Alexa or the wedding venue so most of our contact had been through email, though we were fortunate to be able to arrange a breakfast meeting one weekend we were travelling to Cornwall. It was lovely to be able to meet Alexa and get to know each other a little beforehand.

Prior to our wedding day Alexa had asked us questions about the photographs we wanted that I hadn’t even considered, so with her prompts we were able to really consider the day and what photos would be important to us. Without her guidance we definitely wouldn’t have thought to ask for some of the more sentimental shots, for example, the groom wearing a watch belonging to a relative who couldn’t be at the wedding.

During the day Alexa was super organised but still relaxed, putting us and our guests at ease. She was on the dance floor with the guests, dancing and laughing to help them get comfortable with her, which resulted in some great dance shots!

I get really awkward and uncomfortable around the camera and hate having my photo taken. Alexa was able to lighten the mood and also suggest some different poses for a few of the couple shots - though, most of our pictures are more natural ‘caught in the moment’ shots which are exactly what I was hoping for.

We had 20 children and a dog at the wedding and nothing fazed Alexa, she got some truly wonderful shots (especially of said children and dog!) that will be treasured forever.

Winter elopement wedding in Cornwall

Alexa did such a wonderful job on our pictures - the photos were spectacular and she really captured how we felt on the day. And she was a pleasure on the day itself - as it was an elopement it was a priority for us to have someone who could make us feel at ease and she was great! Highly recommended!

Perfect Photos and Lovely Person

We got married in January, the day before the country went into national lockdown. It was an elopement wedding so just the two of us with our 3 month old baby and our dog.
We booked everything quite late notice and I was so happy to find Alexa had availability as I had stumbled upon her beautiful work.
Alexa was really quick to reply when chatting beforehand, really friendly and accommodating and so professional on the day. She even acted as a witness so she could come into the wedding room (it is too small to fit a photographer otherwise)
I hate having my picture taken usually and find it very uncomfortable but Alexa put us at ease and really knew what shots would work well and how to work with the light. We had photos at the venue and then at the beach. We have the photos back now and we love them so much! Perfectly captured the day in a natural way like we wanted. Also not an easy task with a crying baby and a barking dog!
100% would recommend Alexa and would use her again in the future.
Thank you Alexa xxx
