'After many years of travel and working in Miami with people from all countries and cultures, it was under American skies in 1999 when I met Kristie.  From that day forth, our own love story spiralled into a marriage, a business and an expanding family. It became our dream to work together creating a career that reflects our passion for both family and photography, whilst maintaining a distinct vision on how the Harkness brand would progress. In 2001 that dream became a reality and as 2019 is now half way through, that success is very much growing with every passing day. '



'People often ask me about my style & how I describe it. I always find it easier to point them to my portfolio to let them make up their own mind. I would say;  its a mixed style. I have a great eye for not only creating an image but also timing to capture them. I work close but at the same time remain part of the crowd. I step up when I need to and then blend back in. For me being a photographer is all about timing, making sure you don't miss a moment because often they wont happen again.. Making people feel at ease is also a skill! Crowd management.. at times is a necessary part of what we do! Ultimately as a wedding photographer you have to live on the edge, be able to see the moments around you whilst all carries on, work fast and above all make it fun for the client & their guests. Working under pressure is key and I thrive on this.. If its a subtle mixture of documentary images combined with beautiful portraits then you've come to the right place...'


Working with Brett Harkness is an absolute dream.  It is a pleasure having him and his team on any event.  Not only does he work extremely well under pressure, he instills so much calm in the client and makes the whole day incredibly enjoyable.  It is a hard task to make guests feel comfortable in front of the camera, but Brett’s personality always ensures they feel at ease and this results in the most stunning natural shots. Aside from being a total professional, I personally adore Brett’s work; Creative, artistic and has a unique edge to his photos.
