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.

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

Excellent wedding photographer

Alexa photographed our wedding in August 2020. We had originally planned a larger wedding in April 2020 but had to rearrange due to the pandemic. Alexa was amazing and made herself available for our new date, despite having booked her holiday for that week. She was very supportive and responsive throughout the stressful period where we were deciding whether to even go ahead in August and we really appreciated this.

In terms of her style, Alexa is relaxed and approachable and made us feel completely at ease. She blended in on the day and the guests also commented on how excellent she was! We had an engagement shoot with her in 2019 as we are both camera shy and wanted to get to know her before the wedding day. Her style is exactly what we were looking for and we have plenty of gorgeous photos from both the engagement shoot and the wedding. The photos are very natural and she also captured some posed photos where we asked for some group photos with family. This really suited us as we mostly wanted candid photos but knew our families would like the more traditional style.

I would highly recommend booking an engagement shoot with Alexa ahead of your wedding if you’re camera shy like us. It not only helps to get to know Alexa and for her to get to know you, but it also gives a good idea of what type of photos you might like on the day and what suits you best.

Alexa is an incredible photographer and we wouldn’t hesitate in booking her again or recommending her to friends and family!

Amazing!!

We got married in St Austell in Cornwall August 2020. We had only planned a small intimate ceremony so luckily everything could still go ahead as planned. We had the amazing Alexa as our photographer and she really did not dissapoint. As we weren't from the area all of our conversations beforehand were over email but I still felt completely at ease that everything would be just how I wanted on the day. Alexa put me and my husband at ease through the day and caught some incredible moments of our special day.

Very talented photographer

Alexa has a great eye for those perfect moments and results in stunning memories captured. She blended into the background to be able to take natural photos which we will treasure for ever. Her passion clearly shows and her commitment even more so, following a long day, Alexa wrapped things up only to return a while later asking my husband and I to pop outside to get one last silhouette shot in the entrance of the venue which was softly lit from the grounds. This ended up being one of our favourite images. Alexa came highly recommended to us and we were not disappointed and you will not be either! It’s clear to see this photographer loves her work and takes great pride in what she does.
