Manchester Wedding Photography

Hello! I’m Alin, owner and main shooter at Alin Turcanu Photography. I’m a creative wedding photographer with a style that blends posed and natural photography. As my testimonies show  I always go above and beyond for every wedding couple I work with.

Weddings are amazing!

I’m the guy behind the camera who will capture the sweet emotion, priceless moments and tears of happiness so you can enjoy them over and over again. Certainly, you’ll want to look deep into your photos going back to that scene to relive the moment for years to come.

Importantly, being a professional wedding photographer isn’t just my job, it’s the thing I want to do every day, with passion and involvement for every couple I meet.

Manchester Wedding Photographer – How it started

From my first wedding, work has snowballed. I photographed 15+ weddings in my first year, investing every penny back into the business upgrading my equipment and ended up being a great support for all the couples. Further, it has been an amazing achievement for myself and it all started with Maria and Adrian. To sum up, big Thank you for having the trust and faith in me to begin the dream I am living today.

When it comes to wedding photography, there’s a whole lot of average, therefore it’s easy to make the wrong choice. In other words, we very quickly realized that his work was head and shoulders above anything we’d seen before. We drooled over his portfolio and hoped that we’d get something even half as good as the other weddings! We weren’t disappointed at all – the shots we got back were insanely good!
Alin himself felt like we’d met up with an old friend, but most importantly, he has a great sense of humor and made us feel like we were stars, directing enough to get the perfect photo whilst not saying too much! Certainly, he exudes a rare passion for his work, getting excited about different photo opportunities and running around looking for spots of light and new moments!
He directed our families around perfectly and blended into the background, managing to capture every single special moment! I’m actually convinced Alin may have 5 or 6 identical brothers, as I don’t know how one person managed to take pictures of every little detail and moment of our day! If you’re thinking of using Alin for any photography, I would 100% urge you to book him! Other photographers are nowhere near the same standard. Thank you Alin!!

Talking about me is just hard xx

Firstly, I’m not just a wedding photographer, I’m a husband and a father of a handsome 3y old son. I’m based in Eccles, Manchester. Whilst most of my work is within a 50 mile radius, I’m happy to travel all around the UK. In fact, I want to make as many couples happy as I can. 

Described as a funny guy, I tend to interact with everyone involved at your wedding. With this in mind, at the end of the day, your grandma will probably be my new best friend.

I’m a mixture of a Documentary photographer and Pictorialist

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.

Manchester Wedding Photography – My approach

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.
