“Always chasing lights and stories...”
Hello and welcome.
My name is Harriette. Currently based in Caen, Normandy, I am a film wedding and portrait photographer with an appreciation for adventure and beauty. I grew up in the United Kingdom, in Southampton, and then in France, amidst the beautiful countryside of Manche. So, I am largely influenced by the English culture and as well as the French !
Why am I so passionate about photography?
Since as far back as I can remember, I have always loved art. Indeed, I loved it so much that I kept exploring it. I grew up in family of artists and I spent much of my time sketching portraits, and putting my ideas and dreams onto paper as I would draw. Although I did not notice it, my interest in photography slowly grew. In a way, photography assembles all my interests together. It is an art that encompasses so much.
Why do I shoot in film ?
As I am passionate about photography, I enjoy capturing those beautiful moments that are special to you. However, my work is not limited in giving you beautiful pictures or making your wedding day memorable. I always pay special attention to the light, atmosphere, details, and emotions that play an important part of your special day. To me, photography is more than just a job. It’s a way of perceiving the world around us. Shooting medium format film helps me to compose beautiful timeless images with an artful approach. I love the luminosity, softness, colors and the authenticity produced by film.
Why do I want to create art out of your life ?
Being a fine art photographer, my work leans towards to a style that can be described as modern, natural and romantic. Also being a romantic at heart, love stories are always an inspiration for me. One of the greatest joys of my job is meeting people, hearing stories of how people met. Nearly a year ago, I quit my teaching job to do what makes me happy : capturing weddings and people in love.
Small, intimate and destination weddings are my specialty. I travel and am not limited to just Normandy. Wherever you live on this planet, I would be happy to come over to capture your love and create tangible memories for you. I am excited to get to know you !
When I am not narrating a wedding, special moments or shooting an editorial, you will find me enjoying a walk out somewhere in the french countryside or at the beach with my fiancé, Etienne, and our two little children, Robin and Lana.
