Alina's Approach

Hello! This is me, Alina! I am a photographer with a life time of experience as I was raised into photography by my dad, who is also a photographer. I have 20 years of experience in photography and art. My works have been published in Vogue, as I am a prominent storyteller of women’s and motherhood experiences all around the world. This, besides my elegant documentary, candid style, makes me a unique wedding photographer. Why do I shoot weddings? Because I love building meaningful connections with people and being in the centre of action on your happiest day. I really do feel like it’s an absolute special honour to be able to capture love. My clients cry after seeing pictures and stay my friends and come back for other shoots!

I am a multicultural photographer, originally coming from Turkmenistan, speaking Russian, English, a bit of Korean and Spanish, I lived and studied in the US, South Korea and Spain. I love capturing people, cultures and occasions - diverse LGBTQ+ and cultural representation is a pillar in my business. I have shot Phillippine, South East Asian, Chinese, Norwegian, African, Multi-Cultural and Caribbean weddings and celebrations among many others!

Fun fact: I have an International Business degree as well as passion for music, gardening and food!

Services Offered - See my packages on my website https://www.alinapullenphoto.com/weddings-copy/

I would like to let you know that I include a free pre-wedding mini photoshoot with all my packages, it is not reflected in the price and I absolutely insist on it as it makes a tremendous difference for the wedding day. You also get an option to purchase the final pictures after seeing them in your gallery.

Usually, we would have a quick coffee where you would tell me about the wedding and yourselves and then we would go for a short walk and take some pictures of you two. It is a bit of a “rehearsal” for the wedding, when we get a chance to feel each other out and get rid of any awkwardness. You also get a unique benefit of seeing my work and pictures of yourselves before the wedding, which would put you at ease and help keep you relaxed for the wedding day.

Alina offers various wedding packages and can happily travel throughout the UK to cover events. Alina has over 10 years of experience as a project manager and provides a stress-free service by planning ahead, generating ideas, and proposing solutions. Couples can choose from an hourly rate to half-day and full-day coverage, with every booking, Alina offers a free pre-wedding session to really get to know you and establish mutual trust.

Simply Amazing.

Working with Alina was a pleasure from start to finish. We could tell from the moment that we sent an inquiry that Alina was the best choice we could make. She immediately made us feel at ease, taking the lead when needed to guide us on what we should be thinking about, getting to know us and most importantly, looking forward to the big day.

Her communication has been fantastic throughout, giving us advice and feedback over email, whatsapp messages and video calls. Along with prompt return of many beautiful photos, delivered in sets for our convenience.

Her personal touch was greatly appreciated, along with her professionalism.

A personal, but not intrusive, experience

We really enjoyed working with Alina on our low-key, family-centric wedding. The pre-shoot captured us in a favourite park and allowed us, and our 8 year old sons, get used to being photographed and to Alina. On the day itself, Alina got some magical shots - many where we didn't even realise there was a photographer there! She even produced a blister plaster from her bag of tricks to help me out! Would really recommend Alina.

An absolute joy to work with Alina!

Since meeting Alina for our pre-wedding photoshoot, we knew that Alina was the right photographer for us. She was friendly and open, which made us feel very comfortable while working with her. During our wedding day, Alina was very professional and had a great eye for capturing intimate and memorable moments. Highly recommend Alina - talented photographer and a great person!

Captures the special magical moments

Alina piggybacked our official photographer and ended up giving us some of the best shots of the day. She captured some really special moments and emotions by knowing what to look for and where to be. Her photos blew us away and will always be treasured to us both. Very highly recommended.

Captured our day perfectly

Alina was so kind and reasonable from the get go. We were in two minds about getting a photographer but I’m so glad we did. The whole experience was really smooth and honestly we gave her very little to work with on the day. We didn’t want to spend long posing, we wanted to get straight to the party and I’m awkward to photograph and she still managed to get so many great shots that we’ll love forever. We’re waiting on the whole gallery because we only got married a week ago but I’ve uploaded some here.

Amazing photographer 100%

Alina was fantastic from the very start she met us before hand to go through the order of day and specific photos we wanted her to capture. She offered us a pre-wedding photo shoot also which was wonderful.
The day of the wedding she made us feel comfortable and captured all those moments that we will treasure forever. I honestly can not thank or recommend her enough!!

Really good

We had such a wonderful experience with Alina. She put us at ease and was so creative with poses. She got to know us beforehand; Our vision for our wedding was "chilled" "relaxed" and "intimate" and she did a great job capturing that. Delivery time for pictures is spot on. She is professional and courteous and attentive and punctual and kind and I cannot recommend her enough! We will definitely be back again.

Made our wedding look more expensive and chic

We were so impressed when we saw our wedding photos, Alina has really a unique vision of the world! Our friend and family were really shocked because Alina’s pictures made our wedding look really expensive! Besides being a great photographer she is also a very kind attentive person, when nerves are high, she keeps calm and talks to you and somehow you feel comfortable and relaxed. She took her job very seriously and planned a pre wedding photoshoot, which made such a difference to us as we are a little bit shy and not good in front of the camera. Thank you, Alina!
