A wedding is about you the couple and not about anyone else. It's your day. Etienne made it our day.
It's impossible for us to see everything, know everything or do everything on the day and with Etienne's candid style and ability to position himself to capture the best moments, we got something special. The best way to sum it up is as we went from start to finish through over 1,000 of our images it was as if we were reliving the day, bringing back the moments and feelings.
Some of the best advice Etienne gave was to limit group shots to an absolute minimum. 100% the right decision and I would implore others to heed it. Staged photos, depending on your taste, of course, just weren't for us.
Overall great value for money and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to friends and family. Thanks for making it a memorable special day through the images you have taken.

We had a great feeling about Etienne from the time of our first meeting and he did not disappoint. Etienne is diligent, meticulous and very professional and he produced amazing photographs of our wedding day. He blended in to the wedding party and delivered a massive portfolio of amazing candid, spontaneous, vivid pictures that really tell the story of the ceremony and party. Etienne was generous with his time and scouted out the locations in advance so that he could capture every moment and emotion! Finally, he tailored the style and colouring of the photographs exactly to our taste. Thank you Etienne!

"Etienne did the photography for our wedding in June. Would really recommend him. He captures the day without making it solely about photos - something that we were really keen on! Got some great snaps whilst barely noticing him photographing."

"We organised a very special wedding in June on Guernsey and Etienne Laine was the photographer. Apart from being a very nice guy and a true professional he also took fabulous photographs.

We decided to go with Etienne Laine because we loved his unique style of photography. From the very first meeting he was friendly, creative and even suggested a few money saving ideas. The communication between us was enough to get every single detail agreed and turned around quickly. Considering the quality of his work and all the extra bits he threw in, he was a very reasonably priced wedding photographer. He even printed one of the photos on the day of the wedding, framed it and slipped it in with our other gifts! A nice touch we thought. We would highly recommend him for any photography work you might need.
"Thank you so much for the beautiful photographs you have taken for us. Scott and I have just looked through them and are delighted with the end results! They were exactly what we were hoping from our wedding photographs. We love the natural and effortless look to them and they capture the mood of the day brilliantly. Thank you for being so flexible with the arrangements and we were extremely impressed that you captured our wedding day without imposing upon it. You have given us fabulous photos to remember our day by and we have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone! Thank you once again."
Gill and Scott
Etienne has the most amazing talent for capturing the moment, not just the big "ring going on finger" stuff but the sideways glances moments too. We love our photos, we treasure those captured moments.

We chose Etienne for our wedding photographs because I have worked with Etienne before on commercial photography. He has a great eye especially for portrait work, his ideas are a little different and he likes to capture the moment and not stage the shot. We were really please with the end result and would not hesitate to recommend Etienne for wedding photography.
Some while ago, I was lucky enough to recognise Shutter man Etienne Laine’s huge talent and passion for photography when we first met .
Back then ,he was bringing in some new and edgy style photography styles and we have commissioned him many times over the years to shoot for La Grande Mare Hotel, Golf and Country Club.
Etienne continues to impress at every session and is, I feel, bringing an extra value to our product be it our Restaurant food, Hotel Rooms, staff members ,Golf course and Health suite or any other subject he chooses to capture.
I had no hesitation in getting him to cover my own Wedding reception recently and was delighted with the results.
"Thank you so much for being a big part of our day Etienne! We couldn't be happier with how you captured the day and all the special memories within it."
Claire and Danny
"We cannot recommend Etienne highly enough. In the best possible way, Etienne was invisible at our wedding and the beautiful photos he took captured the happy memories that we have of the day."
Stuart and Stephanie
Étienne took our photos for our wedding. We had never met him before he came to our house for a consultation. He immediately put us at ease and his easy going nature reassured us that we would have the type of pictures we were looking for. Etienne's style of photography captured the atmosphere and energy of the day which was exactly what we wanted. He went above and beyond and we have some wonderful moments captured that I didn't even realise he was there to take, he blended in so well!! Thanks Étienne for all the hard work.
Thank you so much for being Kelly & Pete’s photographer on their special day!!! You were so patient Etienne even when all organisational plans went completely out of the window!!
