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!
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.
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.
Travel is included in the package in a 40 mile radius
Starting Price: 450 for 2-3 hours
winter and off season discounts available
Look around and you will not find a bad review of Alexa- this is for a reason! We are not ordinarily a couple who go out of our way to get our pictures taken, and dreaded the idea of a set of very formally posed wedding photos. We stumbled upon Alexa in an online search and never looked back. We met before the day and Alexa wanted to know about us and what we wanted, and was clearly a very chilled out person. She was amazing on the day- in the middle of the action but never obtrusive or demanding. The photos we received were incredible, and neither of us can look at them without crying; she truly captured the essence of our relaxed and joyful day. Thank you so much, Alexa!
If you're looking for a wedding photographer who has perfect eye for detail, outstanding photography skills, friendly and professional then look no further. I have had so many people approach me to comment on how amazing our wedding photos are. We honestly couldn't have picked a more perfect person.
We used Alexa at our farm wedding in September and the photos are simply stunning! The colours are beautiful and the images capture me and my husband perfectly.
Alex blended in with my friends and family while we were getting ready and then we hardly noticed her during the ceremony and the speeches.
All of our guests had good comments on Alexa throughout the day, we would highly recommend her :)
Alexa captured our day beautifully! She was relaxed and a lot of the day you wouldn't have noticed she was there. We are not ones for having our photos done but she made us feel at ease.
Our photos are brilliant and has captured the relaxed feel to the day. We love the natural photos of our guests enjoying themselves and all the little details she captured. Thank you so much Alexa :)
We had an amazing wedding day and it was even better to have it all captured in Alexas amazing photos! They are all so beautiful and such natural shots of our day between us, family and friends!
Alexa captured our day perfectly. She was professional throughout with a relaxed style that suited us both, as neither are ones for having our photo taken.
If anyone told me that we would get married in the snow I wouldn’t have believed it. Luckily for us Alexa was not put off by the Beast from the East. She was more than happy to take photos in the snow using the weather to create some lovely snowy scenes. With the formal shots out of the way she captured the day perfectly in a relaxed fun style. Alexa has a great attention for detail and dedication. She stayed until the end despite the weather and retook some photos of my dress in the snow to ensure it matched the rest of the day. We are really pleased with the high standard and quality of the finished photos, which come on a USB in both colour and black and white. We are really pleased with our wedding photos and can’t wait to make our album.
Once we had decided to get married at Lusty Glaze it was important to us to find a photographer that had previously worked in this venue & who could capture it's beauty. Alexa had some pictures from a previous wedding she had shot here & they were great-we thought it would be amazing to have our day captured like this.
Alexa's relaxed approach helped us relax & enjoy having our photos taken rather than grins & forced poses. Our guests thought she was amazing too.
Having met Alexa for a pre engagement shoot was a great way to get to know each other before being thrown into the big day.
Our wedding pictures are everything that we could have hoped for & a lot more. They captured all of the love & laughter our our amazing wedding day & the colours are unreal.
I can highly recommend Alexa & her work & we will treasure our pictures for years to come.
Alexa did a fantastic job of documenting our wedding celebrations through photography. She created beautiful photos and delivered exactly what we wanted from a photographer. Her photos captured the wedding and the people within it in a fantastic way.
She took unposed photographs for the most part and we felt this captured the true essence of our celebrations. She communicated excellently with myself and the bride, and our other guests.
She also took some fantastic photographs of myself and my bride Kasia. All of the shots she took were of the highest standard regarding composition, colour and lighting.
After the wedding we also requested a photo album be designed and printed by Alexa. She did a fantastic job of this as well, we have a memento which we will cherish forever.
All in all Alexa’s services are highly recommended.
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
We have had beautiful photos from Alexa, with a natural and relaxed coverage to compliment the style of our newquay wedding. Alexa is friendly and was a pleasure to have at our wedding. Thank you Alexa.
I hope Alexa can make your event just as special as ours! X
We hired Alexa to cover our ceremony only. Although due to distance restrictions we couldn't meet beforehand, Alexa was great at organising us and we were able to explain exactly what we wanted from the photos (traditional and unposed). I have to say we barely even noticed Alexa was there as she was snapping away but we have the best photos from her! We are so happy with the number she took and the quality and craftsmanship of the photography. Thanks Alexa for helping us capture these special moments.
Alexa did a brilliant job photographing our wedding, we have some brilliant photos and her eye for a great backdrop really showed. Everyone has commented on how great they are! Thank you very much!
Laura and I were desperate to find a photographer that took natural non-staged photos, and were delighted when we googled documentary style wedding photography and we found Alexa. From the moment we first contacted her we liked her easy going but organised nature. On reccy visit to Cornwall before the wedding weekend, she took time out of her day to meet us after another job. After chatting things through with her, we felt totally confident she would do an amazing job of capturing our unusual wedding.
On the day we were not disappointed she was totally relaxed, as was everybody else, we feel this is reflected in the images that she very quickly supplied us (only 3 weeks later). They are some of the best wedding images we have seen, technically very good, we showed them at our latter wedding party and everybody wanted to know who had taken them! Well done Alexa, you did an amazing job!
We are both just so grateful that Alexa was brought to our attention by a friend. Wedding photography can be a mine field but we never felt concerned that Alexa would produce some beautiful shots from the moment we contact her. She has a wonderful nature about her and it was easy to forget she was even there at some parts of the day (please take that as a big compliment Alexa!)! Our photos are stunning and we couldn't be happier...they will be treasured forever!!!
Thank you Alexa for capturing my daughter and son-in-laws wedding perfectly. The photos are beautiful and you worked so hard to make them just right. Treasured memories of a perfect day.
We absolutely love our photos! Thank you Alexa! You've captured so many beautiful moments for us. We will have such lovely memories for many years to come. Thank you for being a part of our wedding day.
