We’re kicking off the start of the official Month of Love with a little celebration for our newest SMP family members, Kait Murphy Photography and Savannah Weddings. Up first in our lovely round-up? Kait Murphy, a seriously talented, seriously sweet photographer who knows a thing or two about capturing the pretty. Think gorgeous details and love-filled moment aplenty…
From Kait Murphy Photography… I shoot most weddings with the love of my life and new fiancé, Alan. We shoot both film and digital at every wedding to get a classic and dreamy look. We’ve even recently started sending our couples home with a polaroid book so they can get an instant sneak peek of their photos and have a wonderful keepsake from their day. I graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design and my work is featured in their permanent collection in Lacoste, France.
I love to make timeless images with touches of originality, whimsy, and charm. Sharing your day is an honor and I strive to make the moments that I’m holding my camera into fun and memorable ones for all of us! I am in awe of the commitment, love, nerves, tears, laughter, and surrealism of the wedding day and cherish the ability to document and witness it all. I feel incredibly lucky to have the best job in the world – making art out of love.
Here’s a little lighthearted look into who I am…
I like to use Twizzlers as straws
I will never be sophisticated enough to call bangs “fringe”
I love cooking but cannot bake to save my life
I love romantic curls
My 11th birthday was a little rough, because I never received a letter from Hogwarts
The best part of Jeopardy is the contestants’ backstories
I’m a Francophile
I love those Summertime moments when you’ve got a great song on and the windows down and you don’t even care what happens to your hair
I brake for antique stores and reclaimed wood
