In My Head

If I can share my experiences with others and they get more from them than me, that’s more rewarding to me than the experiences themselves. Being this way as a photographer really does take the element of hard work out of my profession.

I have been photographing weddings in and around Devon and Cornwall for 8 years now. When photographing your wedding, my aim is to bring out the best in everyone and infuse some fun. For me, fun is the key to an amazing wedding and amazing wedding photos.

I love what I do and I love it even more when I see what effect it has.

In My World

I am Alex Toze, currently 37 years old, living and always have in Exeter, Devon. I am the Husband to my beautiful Wife, the love of my life, Nicola (we have been a thing since we were 18 years old, ahhhhh), and Dad to the 2 most amazing, charming, funny and sometimes downright crazy boys, Adam and Aaron (we struggled past “A” in the name book).

I am in love with Devon and Cornwall, my home, I love music and anything that gets my head bopping, If you were to step into our house you can bet the kids will be rocking out to some Guns N' Roses or i'll be educating them with some 90s hip hop or some decent house music. I love foreign cinema, food (If it’s edible, I will try it), discovering new Ales, watching and taking part in Mountain Biking and just generally being outside.

I obviously love photography and have plenty of fun with it when I am not shooting weddings in and around Devon and Cornwall. Weddings are my "work" however, I still get involved with various projects which helps me strive to improve and constantly take my photography to the next level. My enthusiasm is constantly boiling over and I love a challenge. You can see more of what I get up to on my personal project site www.alextoze.com.

Why Weddings?

Your Wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, to your family, it’s to see their nearest and dearest tie the knot and share their emotions, to others it’s a great opportunity to celebrate love and friendship. It's a time for you all to get dressed up in your best, enjoy the surroundings of your chosen location, eat fine food, dance and be very merry.

To play a part in this is always a privilege, a lot of people work extremely hard on a Wedding day to make sure it runs as smoothly as possible to ensure you have the day you have been dreaming of. My job is no different however, I get the honour of nearly always getting the best seat in the house. I get to interact with your Wedding party and most important of all I get to do what I love, take photographs of you all. It’s extremely hard work but I am always having fun with those I come into contact with. I get to go to fantastic locations, make lots of new friends and put smiles on the faces of everyone I meet.

Think of me as a friend at your wedding, one that doesn't get drunk, is always smiling and works hard to ensure your day is captured beyond what you could have imagined

Weddings pretty much test all of the skills and experience I have gathered over the years. With so much going on, so much to see and do, it really does provide a challenge that is unlike anything else.
