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!

Edd and I were so delighted when Toby told us he was available to photograph our church wedding at St Wenna church on 30th September. Toby was just fab throughout the whole process, answering any queries we had and putting our mind at ease. Edd and I normally hate having our photos taken but Toby made us feel so comfortable and half the time we didn’t notice him around which means we have some amazing shots that people don’t know about 😜 We have so many special memories caught on camera and have had such fun looking through the photos over and over again. We can’t wait to show our family and friends now. Thank so much Toby, you were simply awesome! 😀

It's difficult to put into words how amazing Toby has been throughout! From the moment we first skype called him and ended up speaking to him for nearly 2 hours we knew he was the right photographer for us. In the lead up to the big day he was so friendly, incredibly helpful and reassuringly organised throughout. He was more than happy to give over his time to make sure we felt relaxed and answered all of our many queries. Planning a wedding can be stressful in so many ways but Toby helped make this aspect of our wedding very straightforward and we had a huge amount of confidence that he would do a great job. On the day itself he was excellent at making sure we got all the shots we wanted without imposing himself on our day. Finally and most importantly the end product was absolutely incredible. He constantly kept us updated on when we would receive the photos and we are absolutely thrilled with them. James & Grace

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.
