A few words from some of the fantastic people I have worked with. I&S-197I&S-197

The very first moment we saw Alex's photographs we knew his style was what we wanted for our special day. We arranged to meet Alex and couldn't have been happier after our discussions. Relaxed, but professional, he put us at ease.

We knew we liked his style so basically asked him to do what he does best. He had some amazing ideas and was just extremely flexible in his approach. Alex is also very friendly and personable and was happy to accommodate anything we asked. On the big day he was fantastic, taking beautiful pictures from afar capturing the zeitgeist of the moment whilst fading into the background. The results are impeccable. Natural pictures of us on our big day surrounded by loved ones, friends and laughter.

We will cherish these pictures for the rest of our lives. Thanks so much for making our special day completely perfect.

From start to end Alex has been amazing and made us feel relaxed and comfortable. He's got a great eye for detail as well as ideas he came up with as the photos are just stunning. We can't fault Alex in any way, if anything we'd recommend him to anyone who's looking for that little extra.

Simply a great guy with a great talent.

Thank you Alex. Jamie & Nikola

Alex felt like part of our day from our first meeting! After catching up at the venue (a field behind my dads house) we had a really good chat about what we wanted out of our photos. We didn't want lots of staged photos, we wanted to capture the day without feeling like we were posing!

Alex arrived early and seamlessly got involved. Without intruding on any moment, he captured every emotion from nerves, excitement, giving our parents the wedding gifts, away from everyone else and the moment my dads saw me in my dress for the first time. Then throughout the ceremony the faces of our family and friends, the tears, laughter and even the tiny photo frames with the pictures of our grandparents were beautifully shot.

The speeches, the dancing (and there was lots of that) and the essence of our relaxed, country wedding was captured so elegantly! There were hundreds of photos of the day and there wasn't a single one that we didn't love! In fact it's so hard to chose the photos for the album that we think we're going to have to have them all.

Alex, we can't thank you enough for what you've given us with your photos. We, our family, our children and grandchildren will love them all for years to come. Thank you so much! All our love, Mr and Mrs Deacon xxx

Alex was recommended to us by mutual friends and we're so glad he was! He is a lovely guy, his communication with us before the wedding was fab, and he did exactly what we had wanted on the day and more. Above all our photographs are fantastic! They have brought back every special moment of the day and all the emotions involved. Thank you Alex smile emoticon

"Wedding photography is the photography of activities related to weddings" sounds so simple! but is a huge under taking of an incredibly precious day, perhaps only embarked upon by the incredibly brave and talented. 

Alex is far more than a "wedding photographer" when he is at your day it's as if he is part of the scenery, an essential piece of the puzzle quietly blending among guests making everyone feel comfortable with exceptional ease taking relaxed, informal stunning pictures. And at the same time, is able to switch to the assertive photographer organising the more formal shots with courtesy and humour.

He has an incredible eye and vision for creating the most beautiful photographs, proving he has certainly mastered his artistry. Alex is instantly likable, has fantastic communication skills and is able to make children laugh and feel confident creating  photographs that are simply priceless to a parent.   

From start to finish the service he provides is not only professional at the highest level, but enjoyable and fun, helping to create timeless memories.

Our recommendation could not be higher. 

Thank you Alex, truly.

My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting Alex at another wedding we attended.

 

We booked Alex after a brief meeting with him, we quickly saw that he was a photographer with a keen eye and great enthusiasm.

We had an ambitious plan before the wedding. We wanted to produce a save the date card that embodied us as a couple. We took our ideas to Alex and with his help and talent, he produced a really stunning shot.

 

As the wedding grew nearer, Alex met us at the venue and ran through how he saw the day panning out from a photography point of view. He suggested good shots to capture and the ones to avoid. What can I say...the man knows his stuff!

 

On the day of the wedding, Alex was punctual, discrete, and professional for the entirety. Even though the heavens opened for 95% of the day, he still managed to capture some truly beautiful photographs and you wouldn't even notice that it was raining.

Alex Toze is not to be over looked! He is a fantastic photographer and person, whose attention to detail is second to none. You will not be disappointed!

Even before the wedding Alex made us feel really comfortable and put us at ease over the events of the day. He took the time to meet with us and go through step by step what we could expect from him to take as much pressure away from us as possible.

During bridal preparations Alex was in the room and we would never have known. He kept himself to himself and took lots of beautiful, natural shots while never getting in the way.

It must have been a testing Wedding for Alex because we were running behind schedule most of the day. However, in Alex’s professionalism, he remained patient at all times and provided solutions to ensure we still got those all important shots. Even though we hadn’t managed to take our main couple photos by the time the first dance came, Alex was more than happy to stay later than planned and continued to work his magic .

He worked so hard during the day and made us feel relaxed in front of the camera, especially my husband who hates having his photos taken. The photos we received are amazing and we would recommend him to anyone. 

Thank you Alex, Matt and Jemma x

Luckily for us Alex was a friend of ours and we were so pleased that he could do our wedding. From the outset Alex realised what kind of Wedding we were adapting and he completely went with it, throwing in different ideas here and there.

Our Wedding was to be as relaxed and easy going as possible and Alex really helped with this. There were no forced photos of family as we wanted nearly everything as natural looking as possible. Every picture that Alex took totally suited our style and wedding.

We can only say that Alex was absolutely brilliant, he worked tirelessly all day to ensure we got magical wedding photos. We both agree that our Wedding pictures are beautiful.

We were so lucky to have Alex and his rates were great too with no hidden costs or extras. I would recommend Alex to anyone. Thanks for the great Pics Alex.

My wife and I were lucky enough to be able to book Alex Toze for our wedding in June 2104.  Having looked though a fairly large number of on-line portfolios and receiving a recommendation from a friend, we put Alex on the top of our list.  As an ex-photographer myself I was really impressed with his obvious ability both from a technical and aesthetic perspective.

Before the wedding he made time to come and visit us, talking through what we were hoping for and letting us know what we could expect from him.  Furthermore,   he was keen to spend a couple of hours with us at the venue, selecting possible shoot sites and working out contingencies if the weather wasn't as we had hoped. (Fortunately we had no issues on the weather front!)

On the day, Alex arrived on time and well presented at my wife's parents house for a few 'getting ready' shots. Throughout the day he was always on hand and prepared to capture those unplanned moments but was never in the way or overly obtrusive.  His polite manner combined with his excellent people skills meant he made everyone comfortable and even put the most nervous of us at ease.

A couple of weeks after the wedding, Alex came to our house to deliver the nearly 500 fantastic, high quality images on a USB stick, in a lovely personalised presentation box.

Since then, Alex has also made the images available on his website so friends and family can download and print any they chose. With no copyright watermarks on the images, we're free to chose which ever printing service we want and aren't tied in to only getting prints from Alex. 

I can't recommend Alex highly enough, fantastic price, great service, superb images all delivered in the most professional way.  If you chose Alex as your wedding photographer, you won't be disappointed.

Ricky and Sarah Harding.

Alex was our wedding photographer and he captured every moment of our day brilliantly and made it so easy. 

We met Alex before the big day. He checked exactly what we wanted and gave us great suggestions on where and when to have photos taken. We really appreciated his advice on how to make the traditional family and friends photos look good and be a stress free experience for everyone. 

On the day we hardly noticed Alex was there but he captured everything and everyone brilliantly. He took some really lovely relaxed photos of people enjoying their drinks and chatting, gorgeous photos of the ceremony and made sure we got all the family photos we wanted. We were a bit reluctant to do set up romantic shots but Alex helped to bring out our romantic side and captured how Marc and I are together. Our wedding day was a whirlwind and went really fast, we were really grateful that Alex kept reminding us to have certain key parts of the day photographed - cutting the cake, first dance etc - he made sure we had photos of every moment of the day. 

Alex was professional, friendly, creative and most importantly he has ensured that we have some fantastic photos of our wedding day that we will treasure forever.

Thank you for everything and I wish you all the best for your photography business.

Julia and Marc.

My Wife and I recently got married and chose Alex to capture our day.

Before the wedding we met with Alex on a few occasions to talk about what we wanted and he made the whole process so easy by offering tips and guidance about what we might like to do. On the Morning of the Wedding Alex was at the venue early, to capture the whole day as it unfolded. As the day went on he worked tirelessly to ensure that all the effort that we had put into the wedding was perfectly documented.

We don't love posing for formal photos, we prefer natural shots so asked to get all the family shots etc done quickly. He has a remarkable ability to get everyone together at the right time with minimal fuss and because he has such a great personality, it never felt like a chore, it was a lot of fun! Alex stayed late into the evening getting some great pics of our evening do. It's strange because I know Alex was there all day and night but I hardly remember seeing him!

When we received our photos after the wedding we were genuinely blown away. Absolutely everything was captured and it was a brilliant re-telling of the story of our wedding. The photos are absolutely stunning. For a lot of our pictures we asked Alex to be creative and do what he thinks is best. We were not disappointed. He has the imagination and insight to see the potential photo and then the skill to capture it perfectly.

We cannot recommend highly Alex highly enough. I genuinely believe you will not find a better photographer. On top of that, he's one of the nicest people you will meet and is always on hand to offer help & support. The whole package is first class.

Alex was our photographer for our big day. He was meticulous in his planning, which resulted in an amazing day because he was so well organised. Alex provided some sound advice around timings and he was also able to work around our requirements (of which there were plenty!!). We were really impressed with how well he managed the wedding party for the photo session following the ceremony, he steered people in the right direction with his professionalism and charisma and got some fantastic pictures that truly encapsulate the day.

Alex worked tirelessly throughout the day and evening and we loved the way he mingled with the guests to capture an awesome array of photos.

Thanks to Alex, we have some really beautiful pictures to look back at our special day. Huge thanks, Darren and Dominique

We have just recently had our wedding photos back from Alex. The day was absolutely amazing and the photos really captured the day as we remembered it. He managed to capture some fantastic pictures and some really funny moments. So posting this message to say if anyone is lucky enough to get married in the future please get in contact with Alex as I'm sure you will be just as pleased as us!

Carl-Danielle-309Carl-Danielle-309

We chose Alex as our photographer having noticed wedding pictures on Facebook of someone I went to school with. Finally, I thought.. exactly what I'm after! Natural, unposed shots of people just having fun! I immediately contacted Alex and we met two months before our wedding and I can honestly say we knew we had made the right choice as soon as he walked in the door! Myself and my husband felt like we had known him for years and he was like a mate. Friendly, calming with a knowledgeable approach. Carl hated having his photo taken but Alex made him feel at ease on our pre wedding shoot (which many of my married friends never got) and now having received our wedding photos, he actually doesn't mind a pic or two! 

We specifically asked for family shots at the church & then just natural shots of everyone enjoying themselves and that is exactly what we got. Alex gives himself 110% to your day and will do anything to suit your requirements & needs. He always reassured us "it's your day". We were not allowed shots inside the church but Alex still managed to get a few cheeky ones in and they were absolutely stunning, like he had stood there for hours trying to capture the shot but no.. A sneaky click and the result was better than I could have imagined. We were over the moon with all of our photographs and have had so many wonderful comments. We especially loved the photos Alex took during our speeches which captured every second of the laughter, more laughter and then tears.

I am so glad we chose Alex, Thank you for being a special part of our day, Danielle and Carl.

We cannot sing Alex's praises enough. He went above and beyond the call of duty to photograph our special day. He met with us before and shared ideas with us. He really "got" who we were and what we wanted.

The day went so smoothly which was largely down to Alex's relaxed, friendly and professional approach. He was as cool as a cucumber when I text him in the morning asking to change the itinerary (even though it meant he had to drive to the other side of Exeter through traffic, he arrived at the hotel with huge smiles!). He was inconspicuous during the ceremony and the meal, this meant that he captured people showing real emotion and caught the little moments that make up a wedding day. He had a way of getting to know who everyone was and ensuring that he was in the right place at the right time to capture moments that we didn't see.

Looking at the photo's (the best wedding photo's we have ever seen) we are amazed because he captured the feeling of the whole day and every little detail and more... Alex, for driving to Woodbury park, then Exeter Castle, then the pub to capture the groomsmen's special moments, then to my hotel, the castle again, Exeter quay and then Exeter castle again (phew!).. we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We will treasure our photos forever. Thank you for playing such a huge part in the best day of our lives, love Mr and Mrs Roseler xx

My wife and I are so glad we chose Alex to capture our special day. He remained professional and organised throughout the day, while always managing to relax our guests and keep everyone at ease. Alex was more than prepared for our constantly changing plans and was always happy to take on board any of our unusual photo ideas.

The advice Alex gave us before, during and after the wedding has proven to be invaluable and we now have the most amazing wedding photos that we will treasure forever. 

Thanks for everything Alex, Wendy and Darren.

What an amazing chap that created the best and natural wedding photos ever. We're so proud of the photos and memories we'll have for eternity. Alex made sure we met as many times as we needed to ensure we had everything right.

We still cannot believe how long Alex was with us, from breakfast at home right through to the evening capturing every ounce of our special day.

Just stopped by to write a brief review of Alex's work for our wedding. what can I say, he was brilliant!
There all day but barely in sight, the pictures he got were so natural and showed everyone in their best light. The group, formal photos were approached with humour which helped everyone relax and we got some great pictures which will fill all our empty frames and more....I sense a canvas coming.

Everybody was captured but no-one was hassled. He did a truly wonderful job and I would challenge anyone to find better. Take a look at our photos on his site and see for yourself, captured a perfect day, perfectly.
thank you, James and Nat x

Alex was flexible, creative. He came up with some very natural shots that were wonderfully imaginative. Everyone felt totally at ease throughout the day..in his company. Couldn't recommend him enough.
