Photographing the rollercoaster of emotions at a wedding and creating paintings have more in common than you might expect.
Observing and recording energy, emotion, beauty and truth are at the heart of both.
My background in abstract and figurative painting gives me the freedom to take an artistic approach to photographing your wedding. Sometimes abstract, sometimes unconventional, sometimes classically elegant, and always relevant to you and your special day.
I want to keep it fresh and go with the flow of the energy of your day: the mood, the nerves, the joy, the charm and most importantly, the love.
I embrace the natural moments, the unexpected, and where possible, avoid the posed.
I am Edinburgh based but am very happy to travel to you.
Some of my experience shooting weddings includes: on a Scottish moor; on an Irish island; in an English barnyard; a Scottish walled garden; English town restaurants and an Irish hotel.
I am always open to discovering the visual fruit of a new location.

'We honestly feel so lucky to have found Harriet on our search for wedding photographers. We’re not ones for the traditional, staged shots and wanted someone to capture the energy and love on the day… Harriet delivered all that and so much more. Every picture tells a story. Every picture we got from her is just perfect. The original plan was to make some selects and get them in a book, but its looking like we’ll need to get every photo she sent in there.
As if being an incredible photographer isn’t enough, Harriet is also one of the nicest humans you’ll have the privilege of meeting. All while going above and beyond what is expected from a photographer on the big day.
Look no further, you’ve found the photographer you’ve been looking for.'
Kind words from Lily & Tom

She was able to make everyone instantly feel at ease with her personable yet professional manner creating not just the perfect shot, but the perfect atmosphere.
When we received the photos from Harriet it blew us all away - she truly has a beautiful and insightful eye which shines through her work.
Thank you Harriet, you have captured our love and memories to be kept for a lifetime.'
