A documentary photographer is someone who will click the button and will document exactly what happens there. For example, there are so many fantastic photojournalists who do this. Likewise, this is a valid approach and I include this style when shooting weddings. In addition, it’s an art where nothing can be posed, nothing can be repeated and it takes some special skills to be able to capture everything.
A pictorialist is that style of photography where I control everything. I scout for best venue locations to shoot in, I look for the perfect natural light, I guide the couple with poses and I also use artificial lights (flashes, strobes, continuous lights, light modifiers, reflectors, etc).
This enables you to get the best results out of that moment. It is ok to control everything in this way, as long as you feel at ease and everyone enjoys the moment. Which they will, because I am a master at making everyone feel comfortable. Therefore, the emotions will still be just as real.
My unique blend of styles will give the best of both worlds.
I’m a professional photographer based in Manchester, and I absolutely love what I do. Weddings are my specialty, and I love capturing all the special moments on a big day. From the laughter and tears to the first dance and everything in between, I strive to capture it all in a way that will be cherished for years to come.
I’m also a father of two beautiful children, so I understand how important it is to capture those special moments with your little ones. If you have kids, you can rest assured that I will be able to handle them with ease and capture some truly magical moments. In fact, children often seem to take to me quite easily, so if you’re worried about them being uncooperative on your big day, don’t be!

Wedding Photographer in Manchester
I believe that couples should enjoy their wedding day to the fullest, and it is my responsibility as the photographer to make sure that the story of their special day is captured beautifully in an album.
It’s not about posing you to death or taking you away from your guests for hours on end. It’s about being there for the in-between moments, the laughter, the tears, and everything else that makes your wedding day special.
I approach each wedding with a photojournalistic style, which means that I capture the story of your day as it unfolds. My hope is that when you look back at your wedding photos, you’ll not only remember how everything looked but also how everything felt.
Being a wedding photographer for more than 5 years now, I feel comfortable performing under any conditions. I’m always saying that couples should enjoy the day, and it’s the photographer’s responsibility to make sure the story is fully captured and exposed in a beautiful album.

Your Manchester based Wedding Photographer
Firstly, I’m not just a wedding photographer, I’m a husband and a father of a handsome 5y old son and a sweet 5 months baby girl. I’m based in Eccles, Manchester. Whilst most of my work is within a 100 mile radius, I’m happy to travel all around the UK. In fact, I want to make as many couples happy as I can.
My secret is communication – that is the main reason why the relationship with my wedding couples is so unique. I’m always careful to ensure we allocate enough time to build that relationship before the wedding day. Another vitally important reason is the pre-wedding photo-shoot (included in all my collections) and as many consultations as necessary to organize the day from a photography point of view.
There are moments when I can’t control everything, when the job needs to be done with the actual resources available. This is the time when I’m documenting the day as it goes, when the emotions are captured with the real mood, with the ambiance that exists.
I do my best to be as creative as possible to extract the maximum from your venue. Therefore, don’t worry if you see me in the water or laying on the ground – I’m fully insured for both Public Liability and Professional Indemnity.

Some kind words
Well where to begin. If you’re looking for a wedding photographer and you’ve found Alin then your search is over. Alin is so professional but also so relaxing he will put you both at ease during the day and have you smiling and laughing during your photos. Alin stepped in at 8pm the night before our wedding and has created some beautiful photos and that’s only the preview shots that we have seen. My Wife and I were blown away by his commitment to us, 3 days later and we are still talking about Alin and just how good he is. Even all our guest have commented just how lovely and professional you are. From the bottom of our hearts Alin thank you so much. I wish we could do it all again just to have the pleasure of working with you again. We wish you all the success for the future, you deserve it 😁❤Sam & Chris
We cannot thank Alin enough for being an amazing photographer during our pre-wedding shoot up to our wedding day. He is very professional and fun to be with. Every photos captured turned out perfectly and we received a lot of positive feedback from family and friends on how beautiful the photos are. If you are looking for a photographer to document a special event, we highly recommend Alin Turcanu Photography. He really means it when he goes above and beyond with every clients.Ruby & Razvan
Alin was the perfect choice for our wedding. Throughout the whole process well before the day Alin was really helpful and we felt confident that we had chosen somebody who really enjoyed what he does. Our engagement photos were the start and Alin met us and our dogs for an amazing shoot which turned out perfectly.
The wedding photos were so so good. Alin arrived very early and captured every moment from getting ready to well after the dancing had finished and he was a great personality to have there, everybody loved him! Alin also has so many options and choices for albums and the quality is better than ive seen before.
I would definitely recommend Alin for a wedding, or any event!Maddy & Craig
