Hi, I’M ALEXA POPPE, A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER IN CORNWALL…
AWARD WINNING, CREATIVE, REPORTAGE STYLE, UN-POSED WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY THROUGHOUT CORNWALL,DEVON AND DESTINATION WEDDINGS
Capturing those special moments to tell a story to be remembered…
Wedding Photography to me is all about telling stories. After your ‘special day’ all you have left is the photos which revive your memories.
Let me tell your story.
In my opinion, every wedding day is unique and I appreciate how much effort you put in to bring your own personality and character to your wedding. That’s what I aim to capture, you being you on your special day!
Creating the very best wedding images is all about feeling at ease with your photographer. So, it is important to me to set up a pre wedding consultation and create a strong personal and relaxed relationship with my clients, to understand your style and requirements. I also have a wide range of suppliers I can recommend and help you with your wedding planning if you need some advice. I’m best described as a mega relaxed photographer who will make you feel comfortable. I don’t want you to feel you are at a photoshoot and won’t take over your wedding day, I will just be there quietly observing the action. I thrive on capturing real-life, true emotions – no posing you in anyway if you don’t want to rather quietly observing and capturing natural moments 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.
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 documentary wedding photography with my constant desire to produce creative and candid images, I produce wedding photos that capture those special moments, emotions and personalities both of you and your guests to tell the story of your wedding day. My intrinsic understanding of composition and light and keen eye for portraiture plus years of experience in editing (I'm a perfectionist and also have a degree in design) will deliver the professional photographs you desire. I give every single image the attention it needs and edit it to my personal style, no badge editing like some may do. This is the reason why it takes a few weeks for you to receive the fully edited photos.
A memory of joy and happiness to keep forever and you can proudly present to your friends and family.
It was on a family holidays to Greece where I was first inspired to take photos by my stepfathers passion for photography and the captivating light there. It was him who showed me the basics and I soon filled endless photo albums. Whilst studying in Hamburg nearly 20 years ago and during my design career I continued to capture images with my camera. Travelling to Southeast Asia and Australia in 2002 a passion for travel photography was ignited by the colours of these diverse cultures. Today I live in Cornwall where I'm inspired by the scenery and outdoor lifestyle, I surf, mountain bike and go for endless walks with my dog Jed. Eight years ago I set out on a new career in photojournalism and in the last 7 years wedding photography. My background in design and my broad photographic experience will ensure that your images are of the highest professional standard. I also offer beautifully custom designed photography books / photo albums tailored to your personal style. Have a look in my prices section for further details.
