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.
