About Me

Hello and welcome!


My name is Scarlet. I was born in 1987 to German parents in Decatur near Atlanta, Georgia/USA, spending my childhood and youth in Oberursel, near Frankfurt a.M./Germany. In my teens I revisited the country of my birth and spent a year in American high school in Pennsylvania/USA. Back in Germany I finished my high school years at Frankfurt International School, graduating with the International Baccalaureate. In 2007 I enrolled at Loughborough University in Loughborough/UK, spending one semester abroad in Perth/Australia and graduating with a BSc in Communication and Media studies in 2010. 

After having worked in TV and radio in Cologne/Germany, life brought me to the Netherlands in 2012, where I was then employed at a big online travel agency for five years. In 2016 I met my husband. We moved to Purmerend in 2018 and got married 2019 in Norway.

I remember getting my first digital camera at the age of about 13 and always having enjoyed documenting the world through my eyes. I am a very visual and creative person who relishes the beauty of the world, even within the smallest things. I seek to reflect realness and authenticity, capturing the contrast between nature and the man made world, the play of shadow and light, as well as candid emotions of the human experience. I want to help you create personal and memorable pieces of art that can be displayed proudly at home or serve as a forever lasting reminder of a special day. I appreciate natural light and prefer working outdoors, where I can capture both the beauty of Dutch nature, as well as unique portraits.

Photography has been a lifelong passion and by starting my own business Scarlet Haag Photography, I was able to fulfill a big dream of mine. Since 2018 I have also been supporting my mentor and friend Helen Navajas as a second wedding photographer with her incredible work at Helen Navajas Fine Art Photography in Volendam/Netherlands.
