Natural Wedding Photography
Manchester is a bustling city with plenty of character, making it the perfect backdrop for any wedding. And what better way to capture your big day than with natural wedding photography?
At its heart, natural wedding photography is all about capturing the day as it unfolds, in all its raw emotion and beauty. That means no posed shots or contrived moments – just you and your loved ones enjoying every minute of your special day.
If you’re after something a little different for your wedding photos, natural wedding photography could be perfect for you. And with me, Manchester-based photographer Alin Turcanu, you’ll have a brilliant photographer on hand to capture it all.
Candid Wedding Photography
I’m a big fan of candid wedding photography, as it really captures the true spirit of your day. My style is about 80% candid, and 20% posed, so you can be sure that your photos will be full of natural emotion and joy.
Posed shots are important too, though, as they help to capture those all-important family groups and couples shots. I’ll work with you before the big day to plan out a few key posed shots that we can quickly tick off on the day so that we can focus on the candid stuff. No one likes being stuck in front of the camera for hours on end, so I promise to keep it fun and relaxed.
Reportage Wedding Photography
My approach to wedding photography could be described as reportage or documentary. That means that I’ll be discretely capturing the events of your day as they unfold without interfering or staging anything. I want you to forget that I’m there so that you can relax and enjoy your day.
Of course, that doesn’t mean that I won’t be helping to organize people for group shots – I understand that these are important too. But I’ll do it in a way that doesn’t disrupt the flow of your day and that keeps things fun and relaxed.
Nature Wedding Photography
As well as being a city, Manchester is also surrounded by some stunning countryside. And if you’re looking for a rural setting for your wedding photos, I’m more than happy to travel outside of the city to find the perfect spot.
There are so many beautiful locations around Manchester that would make ideal backdrops for your nature wedding photography. We could head to the Peak District for some wild and windswept shots or to one of Manchester’s many parks for something a little more relaxed.
Wherever we end up, I’ll make sure that your nature wedding photography is truly stunning.
Panoramic Wedding Photography
I love taking panoramic wedding photos as they really capture the scale and grandeur of your day. Manchester is full of amazing architecture and stunning scenery, so it’s the perfect place to make use of my panoramic photography skills.
Whether we’re taking in the sweeping cityscape from one of Manchester’s many rooftops or capturing the grandeur of your venue, panoramic wedding photos are a great way to add something extra special to your album.

What wedding albums do you offer?
I work with one of the biggest companies in the market called nPhoto and their quality is always above expectations. Therefore, a multitude of covers, materials, and colors from where you can choose when we will design.
When I will be able to see a sample?
On our first consultation, I will bring along some of the samples I designed, in different textures, colors and sizes so you can have an idea about how yours will look like.
Who is designing the album?
I’m the only one who will work out the design. Of course, it’s part of my imagination and inspiration how I will do that. However, the photos are chosen by you unless you’ll give me free hand to sort out everything.
What if something is going wrong with an album?
Any issue during design or after delivery will be corrected. Surely, for any defect please report it right away by email/phone or even message me on social media and I will sort it out. As expected, my customer support is on a really high level – same as nPhoto. I never had any problems with any of the albums and hope to keep it like this.
How and When?
How much time does it take for delivery?
Usually is taking 3 weeks from the time we completed the design. However, during the summertime can take up to 8 weeks due to the volume they process.
Who is doing the quality check?
I will be the first one to open the album for the quality checks and I will deliver in person at your door. Honestly, If you have coffee I may stay with you to see it together.
How can I pay?
I am flexible with payments (credit/debit card, cash, PayPal, bank transfer). As a result, you’ll get an invoice every time a payment is done. So, I do accept installments as well based on circumstances (3-12 months).
Do I receive any receipt for the money sent?
Yes, you’ll get an invoice every time a payment needs to be made. Shortly, you’ll get a receipt after the payment is received.
What style do you have?
It is a mixture of natural and posed style, I love to capture those raw moments during the day on the same level as creating some stunning portraits using lights, gels (indoor, outdoor both daytime and night time). Likewise, I’m not really posing, it’s more guiding and advising you, it’s cooperation to get the best results.
Do you limit the full day coverage?
I don’t really have a time frame for the full day coverage. So, I will be with you from bridal preparations (agreed with you based on the number of bridesmaids you have, location and any other factor which can delay us) until first dance. And more, for your peace of mind, it’s stated in the contract that I will attend for at least 10 hours (please note that there are no extra charges for exceeding this time). You can also request to see full galleries here.
Are you doing half days?
Unfortunately, I’m not doing half days unless it comes as a recommendation from a previous couple.
Are you doing any other type of photography?
I’m specialized in natural wedding photography and this is the only type of photography I’m doing. But, I do occasionally shoot maternity sessions and this is only for my pleasure.
Do we have to feed you?
Assuming that I will spend an average of 10-12 hours with you I will have to get some food to keep my energy up for the whole day. Furthermore, Its a matter of what you consider a better option (sandwiches are fine). Also, please note that this applies to the assistant or second shooter where is the case.
Do you have any discounts?
Yes, there are 4 discounts types available anytime:
- 15% for family or friends of couples who worked with me before
- 10% for any booking taking on a wedding fayre
- 10% if you’ll bring me Milka chocolate on our consultation (I love Milka chocolate)
- 5% if full balance is paid in full on the time of booking
You can’t cumulate all these, the only combo is any of first 3 with 5% off. So, if you’ll bring me Milka and you would like to pay full balance you’ll get 15% off your chosen collection.
How do we book?
It’s simple, you need to pay a deposit using the above payment options which will secure your date. Finally, after payment is received we need to meet in the next 5-7 days to discuss your plans. I believe the bride-groom/Photographer relationship is crucial for wedding photography.
When should you book?
I will advise you to book 12-18 months in advance. Honestly, it’s going to leave plenty of time to sort out all the details of your wedding. Also, I’m going to be the first supplier which you’ll probably book (after the venue) and I may recommend and support with picking the rest.
Are you insured?
Yes, fully insured for both Public and Liability Insurance. Importantly, in case of sickness or any other hazard which can stop me for being present on your day, there’s is always someone to cover me (I have an agreement with 2 more photographers – not as handsome as me but fine )
Do you work alone?
I am the main shooter at all the bookings I take. However, I may have an assistant with me to help me with lighting, moving stuff around, filming, etc. (you’ll be informed if so). Importantly, based on the size of your wedding I may recommend or not the 2nd shooter. Obviously, it’s entirely up to you if you want to have 2 photographers for a small wedding. Also, the extra charge for this will be £300 with the same time limits.
Is the pre-wedding shoot included?
Yes, we will have this anytime before your wedding, preferably at your venue and you’ll get some natural wedding photography. Likewise, It’s a great way for us to interact and it’s going to be good practice for the big day.
If you feel like there is something which I didn’t cover please feel free to drop me a message and I’ll update.
