“ I recently stumbled across your website, and have visited several times since, just to enjoy the sheer beauty of your images.You are such a wonderful talent. I wish I had known about you when I got married four years ago, but I hope there will be another occasion when I will be able to employ your services.As a hobbyist photographer I am inspired and moved by your work – and provoked by a question… What is that velvety chocolate paper you use to print on (and can one paint on it)?I don’t know if that’s a trade secret you are loath to share, and if so, forgive me and forget it.But if you don’t mind letting me in on that detail, it would be greatly appreciated.I’d love to print a little of my own work and a couple of special old photos on that paper. You are not only an exceptional photographer, but an extraordinary person as well, and I wish that you not only continue to capture joy and beauty in your images, but in your life as well.” Jill Baer - Sherman Oaks, CA

“ Just beautiful!!!!!......WOW!! THANK YOU so much Elizabeth. The pictures are spectacular and again, merci.WE LOVE THEM!!It will be so hard to pick.The one with the boys and the umbrellas were great!The one with their backs to the camera really looks like a postcard.The pictures of Janellie prior to the wedding were just beautiful and so were some of the garden shots of them as a couple.Well, everything was great!The bubbles at the end, the close up of the rings, the cake, the flowers, the little bridge outside with the beautiful lake.There's one that I loved too which was when they were walking down the isle. The carriage shots!Oh my goodness.So many beautiful images.THE FOUNTAIN!How can I forget the fountain and the family shots there.Anyway, they are just awesome!!

“ Dear Ms. Etienne - I write to you to request an interview w/you. I am the editor of The Times Journal of Photography. In every issue we interview photographers of world reputation. We would like you to be the main feature story of the issue spread over 8 pages, illustrating 10-12 images of yours and the cover as well.” Aditya Kuber - Times Journal of Photography, Editorial Coordinator, Mumbai, India

“ Elizabeth, you were the first photographer we came to see. We did a great deal of research, looking through countless photographer's websites, and actually met with 7 of them. Nathan, my family, and I agreed that no one we met came close in artistic eye, quality, professionalism, or organization as you did. It was such a pleasure working with you throughout the entire wedding. I have to tell you, this was not easy for me to be working, in school, and planning the wedding, all at the same time. I remember having a meltdown one day and you left me a message on my phone that was so calming and supportive...I felt better immediately. Out of all our vendors you were the person that really had our backs. Your professionalism and creativity really shone through and everyone was really comfortable with you. When we all saw the final product, we were so happy. Liz, a few of those pictures brought us to tears. Thank you for all of your gifts!” Melissa and Nathan Sherman - Chicago, IL

“Elizabeth- Your photos are beautiful!!…… I’m in love." Meredith Schwartz, Media Director, Here Comes The Guide

“ Dear sweet Elizabeth- I have been thinking about just exactly I wanted to say in this letter. When we selected our wedding site it was so enchanting that my desire to find the right photographer became more important than finding the right dress!! I knew I had to find a photographer with creative talent, an eye for artistic images, and one who could capture “that” moment. I wanted more than just standard wedding photos, I wanted images that moved you. YOU GAVE US JUST THAT!! When we look at these photos we relive that magical day all over again. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You’re incredible!” Esther & Juan Reyes - Sonoma County, CA

In this new world of mostly "generic" wedding photography it is always a real pleasure to see images that rise above the rest.As a journalistic wedding photographer of 18 years I rarely see work as special as I have seen on your site.Your wedding imagery is truly very special, artistic, and unique.

Congratulations and here's wishing you much success!" Rick Rosen, photographer - Newport Beach, CA

“ I wanted to share some of the pictures of the engagement photo session Janellie and Luis had recently. I know everyone thinks they have the BEST photographer and I don't mean to imply that your vendors are not quality photographers, but believe me, this one is superior to many in the field. I've worked with numerous commercial photographers in the past on photo shoots for my clients and it was difficult settling for less, so we were very happy when we found Elizabeth.She has done over 100 weddings but is also a commercial photographer who studied in Paris for many years.I highly recommend that you consider Elizabeth Etienne as a high-end vendor for your pickiest clients”.  Barbara Ruano - Planetwood.com,  Sunset Beach, CA

Out evening of wine, dinner and photo browsing was great fun for all of us." Avery LaComb, Marina del Rey, CA

Of all the countless decisions that were made, hiring you was by far the best decision ever made. Hope you don’t mind if I email you from time to time. If you have a showing, let me know. You wouldn’t believe the number of people asking me where they can view your portraits!! Enjoy your time off and I’ll mail you my order.” Cynthia Ocon Pasadena, CA

“I found your posting on the workbook and looked through some of your work and find it most interesting. Bravo! I am most curious as to the capture method you use to create the classic styled images. Is it film or Digital? do you do a lot of your work in camera or is it in the computer? I ask because I am doing a series of portraits of refuges and am seeking a show the strain that their lives have taken on them, thus I come to you with my question, while I am sure you are very busy, if you should have a moment to reply with some ofyour work methods i would be most honored.” Metta, Don Mirra Photography www.donmirra.com

“When I interned with Elizabeth I didn't know anything about the business side of being a photographer. Most of the business practices I use today I learned from working with her: contracts, pricing, accounting, permits, tax I.D. numbers, all things I didn't have a clue about. I also learned how to present a high-quality professional image to my clients. But the MOST IMPORTANT thing I learned was how to VALUE myself and my work; how not to listen to the doubters and the “nay-sayers” and to believe that I could live my life on my terms, making my living doing what I love best!" - Claire Barrett Photography
 
" Elizabeth Etienne is an amzing teacher because she simply leads by example. Every day we did something different and it seemed she just knew how to keep al the balls in the air when she was juggling so many things are once. I learned morew dutring the internship than I could have ever learned at an expensive school so I thank you Elizabeth for giving me this great opportunity!" - Steve Cartright 

“Elizabeth was a wonderful person to intern with - she's friendly, frank, and open. She's also a great example of how one has to be very self-motivated to do well as a freelance photographer - on days when she didn't have jobs, she was still up early and in the studio; scouting locations, looking at magazines to keep up-to-date on current visual styles, shooting for her portfolio or thinking of other ways to improve her skills and her business. One of the most useful things I learned while working with Elizabeth were some retouching tricks that I use often. These tricks always “WOW” clients and friends who work as professional retouchers. It’s GREAT!" - Diana Muhlvill Photography
 
“When I came to work with Elizabeth in her internship program I was ready and wanting to start shooting my own jobs but didn’t understand client relations, (invoicing, contracts, deposits etc...). Through the internship I was able to see first hand how the entire process works from start to finish. The individual care and attention she gives to each client and each job astonished me and really taught me a lot. Whether it’s a big job or small job they are all treated the same. It was also a great surprise to see how much she genuinely cares about her INTERNS success. Her positive encouragement kept me focused. She gracefully nudged me out of the nest and now I have a full time business… something I never dreamed of!” - Wayne Tam Photography
 
“Elizabeth, I wanted to say thank you. Thank you for allowing me to be myself and to have this opportunity to work with you. I must also tell you that every Wednesday evening when I leave your office I feel inspired, excited, and ready to really commit to my new business and life as a photographer!! When I got home I purchased my new website, per your advice with the help of my sisters credit card!. So yes THANK YOU!!!” - Kizzy O’Neil Photography
 
“Within months of working with Elizabeth, I have not only gained valuable hands on experience which would take months at school, but also a friend and a mentor. Instead of dreading work, I looked forward to it because her work environment and personality are always welcoming and supportive. She knows how to get the job done and have fun while doing it!"- Rajilakshmi Noel Shivshanker
 
"I had an extraordinary learning experience with Elizabeth. She sincerely cared about my growth, was a patient teacher and included me in every aspect of her business. My photography improved immeasurably. I would recommend Elizabeth's internship to anyone."
- Elizabeth Bassel
