destination weddings or things shots on my many travels

lisa + dan

Barely 45 minutes outside of Manhattan, Lisa and Dan celebrated their wedding with friends and family at Round Hill in Washingtonville, NY. The light during their ceremony was amazing and just seemed to wrap around the couple and made their happiness even brighter. And let me say, I have never seen a party dance as hard as these guys did… they’d probably still be dancing the day away if they didn’t ever have to leave… enjoy!



cecilia + john

This was only my second time to visit Philadelphia and I am so happy that I was able to be there to capture Cecilia and John’s wedding day. The day was full of beautiful light, traveling the city and lots of Irish touches. I hope you enjoy the photographs!

The beautiful shot below was taken by the lovely Angie, who shot with me throughout the day.



terrain

I shot a great wedding in Philadelphia a few weeks ago and the day after the wedding I had some time to kill, so I headed over to Terrain after reading about it on lots of blogs. The store is amazing and I managed to pick up a few goodies and finished off my visit with lunch at their cafe (the lavender and honey butter was soooo good). Here are a few shots, mainly of the cafe…



anna russell + christopher

Anna Russell and Christopher’s wedding was truly a southern soiree in Nashville. I absolutely adored her Oscar de la Renta dress and all of the classic touches they had throughout the evening.



welcome!

The past few months have bee filled with lots of weddings, photography and traveling and I am super excited to launch the new blog and portfolio site for Kate Murphy Photography today!  Many, many thanks go out to Russ Maschmeyer for building this site from the ground up and making it everything I asked for.  With that said, be on the lookout for lots of new blog posts on the way very soon!

Here are a few shots from a recent trip to San Antonio:

Another great place to stay, this time in Austin, TX. I had the good fortune to stay here while in town for an engagement shoot with some clients who will be getting married later this year in San Antonio. Welcome to the Hotel San Jose

ace hotel nyc

I’ve been traveling a lot lately and have stayed in some hotels with great decor and design, so I thought I’d post some images of a few of my favorite places.  The Ace Hoteldidn’t require much traveling beyond a cab ride (they have hotels in Portland, Seattle and Palm Springs as well NYC) but we stayed there for a special occasion and loved it…
