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.

Alexa

Not being local to Cornwall, we found Alexa on social media and as soon as we saw her work we knew that was exactly how we wanted our day captured. We married at The Green in May. Alexa knew the venue and the spots to capture lovely nature photos of us as well as natural shots of our guests. We met prior to the wedding so we could discuss any particulars we wanted. Couldn’t recommend Alexa enough to anyone. Alexa was so welcome and friendly and blended in with our guests.

Amazing!!

We couldn't recommend Alexa enough! Alexa's work can clearly speak for itself as she is able to capture such intimate moments so beautifully. We honestly still keep looking at the pictures Alexa took of our special day and can't help but smile and see more detail each time we do,
On the day Alexa was amazing. She made us feel so at ease, took the time get to know us and what we liked and made everything feel so natural and easy. For us not being people who like our photo's being taken, Alexa did such a wonderful job.
Alexa was amazing with our guests. All of them have commented on how she effortlessly fit into the wedding and was brilliant at making everyone feel welcome, comfortable and at ease with her being there.
If you are thinking of using Alexa, do it!! It will be the best decision you make!!
Alexa was amazing from start to finish!

Amazing

Alexa photographed our wedding in August at Lusty Glaze beach. We chose Alexa as we're not massive fans of 'posed' photographs and loved Alexa's style and wanted someone that knew the venue. We met her before our wedding to discuss things and knew as soon as we met her she would be great to work with. We only had a couple of shots we really wanted so the rest we left up to her and she did an amazing job of capturing our day perfectly. It was lovely to see things when we received our beautifully presented pictures that we had not even noticed on the day which was lovely. Half of the time we didn't notice she was there as she works very discretely. She goes the extra mile to get her shots, climbing on walls, lying on the wet sand ect but the end results are amazing. I would not hesitate to recommend Alexa to anyone wanting amazing results.

I love our wedding photos

Alexa is fantastic. From the first meeting I knew that Alexa was the right choice for our wedding photographer. Alexa really listens to what you want and then delivers. Our photos are great. Natural shots of family and friends all taken without the fuss of some wedding photographers. I would 100% recommend Alexa.

Perfect wedding, perfect photographer

Alexa captured our day perfectly. From start to finish she was fantastic, she was professional and quick to respond to my many questions. The day ran smoothly thanks to Alexa’s professionalism and great work ethic. You can see how incredibly passionate Alexa is about her work and always wanting to get the right shot, on a few occasions she laid on the floor and leant through windows to get the perfect shot. For us, getting the right photographer was one of the most important aspects of the wedding. The day goes by so quickly and the photos mean you can relive the day over and over and something we can share with our nearest and dearest. I thought it was a lovely touch for Alexa to share sneak peeks on social media and the preview was a lovely surprise and our photos are beautiful and we waited only a few weeks for all of them. One thing that drew me to Alexa was how she caught things in the moment and didn’t stage or pose anything other than a few of our couples portrait, but even then she asked us to just be natural with each other, have a kiss, look at each etc, she made us both feel very at ease. You wouldn’t know she was there most of time, she blended in well and I cannot sing her praises enough. Thank you a million times and for anyone looking for a photographer, Alexa Poppe is your girl.
