Toby Lowe is a bespoke reportage and fine art wedding photographer who covers and Conrnwall and Devon.
"My personal style of wedding photography is both relaxed and intimate. I blend in with the wedding in order to get natural, stylish and classic looking photos. I always aim to spend time with the bride and groom before the wedding to make sure they get the most out of their day. I always work to ensure that you are relaxed in front of the camera on the big day. Some wedding clients like to book a pre-wedding photo shoot to get to know me and to get used to having their photograph taken. This can really help them to relax in front of the camera on the big day. Using that bit of extra time helps them to relax on the big day and ensures that they get superb photos. My preference is for relaxed reportage photography, blending into the wedding in order to get to the heart of the day combined with bespoke fine art photography to achieve striking iconic imagery . This is combined with beautiful artistic photo shoots with the bride and groom as part of the wedding day and of course more formal group shoots if required. I cover Cornwall, Devon and throughout the United Kingdom. I love that this gives me the opportunity to meet some great people and take some amazing shots."

Planning a wedding is not an easy task, there are a lot of things to arrange and book and an enormous pressure to make sure you get things right, which is why I am so glad we chose to book Toby as our wedding photographer; we certainly made the right choice. First and foremost Toby himself is a great guy – very friendly, relaxed and easy going; we quickly built up a good relationship which is very important with someone who is going to be documenting your special day. When it came to the photo package we wanted, we found Toby to be very accommodating in tailoring something that fitted with us and our plan for the day. On the day of the wedding Toby was excellent, he was in all the right places at the right times to get those perfect shots. Toby is also excellent at grabbing those shots you might not be aware of, capturing those non-posed, natural yet special moments that otherwise might have gone unnoticed. Of course we still had our formal group shots for which we all posed, but some of our best photos by far are those natural shots that for the most part we didn’t even realise were being taken. In terms of the final photos themselves, we received all of the photos Toby had taken in digital format on a USB drive; the quality of the photos was outstanding and they were all ours to keep and to do with as we please, we weren’t restricted to picking a certain number of prints. This was perfect for us as we uploaded these to a photo printing site on which we were able to create our own wedding album and canvas prints. I really cannot recommend Toby highly enough; if you are in search of a wedding photographer get in touch with Toby.

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, it all goes by so quickly and as the bride and groom you miss so much! Toby managed to capture all those special moments not only between us, but between our guests too. The photographs are beautiful and really capture the feel of the day. Photographers are one of the most important parts of your day, leaving you with an account of the day to look back on, Toby blended in perfectly with all the guests ensuring everyone was comfortable and the photo’s reflect this. Many compliments have been made by our wedding party about Toby and how his style and personality put them at ease. Having met Toby for our Pre-shoots on the beach, we knew this would be the case, and on a cold, windy beach in Cornwall, if you can feel at ease having your photos taken, then your doing a good job! Toby met up to and exceeded all expectations, and I highly, highly recommend him. Thanks Toby for giving us a perfect record of our day and being an absolute superstar!

Toby played a vital role in allowing us to have the best day of our lives. We gave him a standard wedding list but then asked for a few ‘unusual’ requests. We got our photographs over the weekend and can honestly say each one was fantastic. My mutterings of ‘you know..Vettriano…men walking nonchalantly across the beach…and ‘beach rugby!’ were met with a sense of slight mischief only matched to our own! Toby surpassed expectation and delivered precisely what we (ok I…) had envisaged. I loved his work, his friendly, discreet manner and patience! I am happy for anyone to look at our photos to check them out. Wonderful!

Toby photographed our wedding in April and he was brilliant. He made us feel completely at ease and understood exactly what we wanted from the very beginning.
The shots of the day are absolutely amazing. Toby captured the day perfectly and the standard of his work is exceptional.
He went above and beyond - getting additional shots of the beach at sunset, something which meant a lot to us.
Toby’s calm, professional and friendly nature made a huge difference to us and his skill and talent is remarkable. We cannot recommend him enough.

We cannot thank Toby enough for capturing our special day perfectly! From the initial meeting, to our pre wedding shoot and our wedding day he has been brilliant & professional. Our wedding photos are beautiful and very natural, exactly what we wanted! He even staid to do some sparkler photos at the beach at dusk and has been brilliant with any questions I have had since the wedding! I would definitely recommend Toby, thanks for our perfect photos that we will treasure forever!

Toby was our wedding photographer and he was absolutely superb from start to finish. He was very easy to work with when discussing our requirements and then on the day he was incredibly professional and very friendly towards all of our guests. The final images that he produced were nothing short of stunning and we are so happy we chose him to document our special day. Very highly recommended.

My wife Jessica and I could not have hoped for a better wedding photographer.
Toby really knows what he's doing, and how to get the best photos from any situation. We were absolutely delighted with the pictures he took; they really told the story of the best day of our lives.
When Jessica first met Toby to talk about our wishes she felt that he really listened to her and understood what we wanted. I wasn't able to be at the pre-wedding meeting and he made sure he took time to get to know me on the morning of the wedding and build up rapport.
On the day Toby was so professional, he was friendly and provided direction without being overbearing and intrusive. Our guests really liked him and he looked the part too in a very nice suit!
We received the photos in good time, and they were beyond our very high standards and expectations. Even though it rained all day he still got great shots. We could not have hoped for a better wedding photographer. Choosing Toby was one of the best decisions we made.

In an industry brimming with have-a-gos, Toby really is a superb wedding photographer.
I've attended one wedding where the photographer was two hours late, another where crucial shots were missed and, at one which took place two years ago, the bride is STILL waiting for the finished images.
Toby was prompt, friendly and subtle, and captured so many great shots from the start of the day right through to the end, plus he edited them beautifully. He even managed to get a shot of the all-important ring exchange while hiding the nail I broke on the way to the church...
I get to relive the whole day every time I look at the pictures, they're perfect.
