“I cannot recommend Harriet highly enough. She always goes the extra mile and won’t rest until she has got ‘that perfect shot’. She has an eye for practicality and beauty, and is always, always reliable. I am always thrilled beyond measure when I see the end results. I love working with Harriet and you will too.”

“We mere photography amateurs think that we can take acceptable product photos until Harriet Harcourt – food stylist and product photographer extraordinaire – comes along.
Thank you Harriet, for a photo session well done and well worth it.”
“A photo shoot with Harriet was a great experience. The translation between my need as a client, the graphic designer’s vision and Harriet’s food styling and photography was seamless and innovative. The creative process was amazing to watch, and I’m thrilled with the final result.”
Owner, Mette is Baking
“We have been working with Harriet for the past few years on our suite of menus for our café group. Harriet brings a wonderful energy to every shoot; she’s creative, very organised, has an uncanny eye for detail, and is a pleasure to work with. We will continue to recommend her and her work.”
– Abby and the team at Dôme Café Group
“I was lucky enough to work with Harriet in February 2018 on my latest project – my very own dietitian created recipe e-book.
Harriet’s calm and gentle nature made the whole day a breeze when photographing the food for my recipe book, even though we were under the pump with time and sticking to a tight agenda.
I would highly recommend working with Harriet. Her work is top quality and I was very pleased with the outcome. Thank you!”
Owner, Essence of Eating
“The lady is talented!
I am forever thankful for heeding the advice I was given to use Harriet to develop recipes and create photographs to showcase my product to perfection.
Not only has she come up with some wonderfully different recipe ideas which I would never have considered, her photography is second to none. She exhibits a particular style that consistently draws the eye to the subject matter.
In addition, her relaxed, humorous and unassuming approach to portrait photography inspires confidence, and I am truly delighted with the photos she captured of me at work.
I cannot recommend Harriet highly enough.”
Owner, Bee Lane Fine Smoked Foods

You are delightful, thanks again Harriet!”

“What started out as ‘let’s see how this goes’ turned into a long-term relationship with Harriet. A fabulous, detail-orientated gal with a prop collection that any foodie would drool over, Harriet’s natural ability to cut, dice, ‘jooje’ and finesse foods into a fabulous composition has allowed my dishes to come to life in digital form, with my personality engrained in each pixel.
Harriet and I have produced over 150 photographs, which are used in both web formats and print. But I should say, what I most enjoyed about my experience with Harriet is that I learned rather than just watched. She was not afraid to show me the why in each of her decisions, so I felt that the final result was a true team effort that supported my vision and goals for my brand.
I would, without question, highly recommend Harriet for styling requirements, regardless of the size of the project. Harriet is your go-to foodie ‘finesser‘.”

..Harriet has been involved in the Wellington food scene for a number of years as a caterer and food stylist. During that time, I have employed her in my own food business and worked with her as a stylist. She is an excellent collaborator and an unflappable professional in a field where things rarely go according to plan.”

…I was SO impressed with the way you cooked, spoke so easily, put sample dishes on your bench, got everybody fed; and stayed completely cool, calm and collected. ”
