Award winning Alexa Poppe Wedding Photography specialises in creative, reportage style, un-posed wedding photography throughout Cornwall, Devon and beyond.
My approach: I know how important it is to keep a great memory of your wedding and admire how different each of these special days are and how much effort you put in, no matter what sort of celebration you’re throwing. 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 and make sure you have beautiful photographs that do justice to one of the most important days of your life. 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 have experience that encompasses travel, portrait, editorial and photojournalistic photography. 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.
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/photojournalistic styles with my constant desire to produce fresh and candid images, I create wedding photos that capture those special moments, emotions and personalities both of you and your guests to tell the story of your wedding day. A memory of joy and happiness to keep forever and you can proudly present to your friends and family.
My background: 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 5 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.
