Professional award winning reportage style wedding photography in Cornwall and Devon. Contemporary, creative, reportage, un-posed.

My style is reportage/documentary wedding photography. 

I thrive on capturing real-life, true emotions – no posing you in any way 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, through a selection of candid photos - and you won't feel like you posed at a photo shoot all day!

It's is important to me to create a strong personal relationship with my clients through a pre-wedding meeting 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.


My background comes from photojournalistic projects I worked on in the past. Over the years I have traveled 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/photo-journalistic styles with my constant desire to produce fresh and candid images, I create wedding photos that capture those special moments, feelings and personalities both of you and your guests to tell the story of your wedding day.

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 love our photos! Xx

We planned our small wedding in Cornwall without having seen the venue in person or meeting Alexa beforehand. She was recommended to us by Knightor Winery and we cannot fault her for communication, professionalism or results. Alexa knew all the great places for capturing photos in the best light, and did so at a good speed so we were able to spend more time celebrating with our guests. She was friendly and good at giving direction on what to do. We were blown away when we received the photos, a great amount of gorgeous shots that showed our personalities. Thank you Alexa.

We stumbled across Alexa's photographs whilst looking at wedding venues and knew she was the photographer for us! Her photos are candid, relaxed and brilliantly capture special memories - just what we wanted. After contacting Alexa, we found her to be lovely, incredibly helpful and responsive, which put our minds at ease. Unfortunately, due to a family tragedy, Alexa was not able to attend our wedding and had to fly home. Instead of leaving us high and dry, which I imagine most other photographers would have done in those circumstances, Alexa made sure that we still had a photographer for our special day. She arranged for Megan Hemsworth (who was FAB!) to photograph us, as she had a similar shooting style to Alexa and then edited the photos herself to ensure we had the classic Alexa look we wanted. We'd recommend Alexa in a heartbeat - she's brilliant.

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. In terms of her style, Alexa is relaxed and approachable and made us feel completely at ease. 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. Alexa is an incredible photographer and we wouldn’t hesitate in booking her again or recommending her to friends and family!

Alexa is fantastic. From the first meeting I knew that Alexa was the right choice for our wedding photographer. Alexa really listens to what you want and then delivers. Our photos are great. Natural shots of family and friends all taken without the fuss of some wedding photographers. I would 100% recommend Alexa.

Alexa photographed our wedding in August at Lusty Glaze beach. We chose Alexa as we're not massive fans of 'posed' photographs and loved Alexa's style and wanted someone that knew the venue. We met her before our wedding to discuss things and knew as soon as we met her she would be great to work with. We only had a couple of shots we really wanted so the rest we left up to her and she did an amazing job of capturing our day perfectly. It was lovely to see things when we received our beautifully presented pictures that we had not even noticed on the day which was lovely. Half of the time we didn't notice she was there as she works very discretely. She goes the extra mile to get her shots, climbing on walls, lying on the wet sand ect but the end results are amazing. I would not hesitate to recommend Alexa to anyone wanting amazing results.

Alexa captured our day perfectly. From start to finish she was fantastic, she was professional and quick to respond to my many questions. The day ran smoothly thanks to Alexa’s professionalism and great work ethic. You can see how incredibly passionate Alexa is about her work and always wanting to get the right shot, on a few occasions she laid on the floor and leant through windows to get the perfect shot. For us, getting the right photographer was one of the most important aspects of the wedding. The day goes by so quickly and the photos mean you can relive the day over and over and something we can share with our nearest and dearest. I thought it was a lovely touch for Alexa to share sneak peeks on social media and the preview was a lovely surprise and our photos are beautiful and we waited only a few weeks for all of them. One thing that drew me to Alexa was how she caught things in the moment and didn’t stage or pose anything other than a few of our couples portrait, but even then she asked us to just be natural with each other, have a kiss, look at each etc, she made us both feel very at ease. You wouldn’t know she was there most of time, she blended in well and I cannot sing her praises enough. Thank you a million times and for anyone looking for a photographer, Alexa Poppe is your girl.

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 :)

Alexa captured our day perfectly. She was professional throughout with a relaxed style that suited us both. She took some amazing photos of us in the snow which will make our album extra special. We are very pleased we picked Alexa.

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.

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 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 which 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.
