Hey there! My name is Cat, and I'm a destination wedding photographer. I currently call Colorado home with my husband, Patrick, and our adorable cockapoo, Rocky. Most days you can find me behind the computer with Rocky at my feet, editing photos with a coffee in hand. 

While home may be where the heart is, I have an irrepressible desire for exploring and capturing beauty beyond my front door. 

I am beyond blessed to call photography both my job and my passion. To me, being a photographer is about capturing beautiful, authentic moments on a wedding day. I take pride in knowing that the moments I capture with my camera will serve as memories to share for years to come. 


That feeling when a plane takes off, marking the beginning of a new adventure. Coffee > Tea. Wearing leggings and a comfy sweater while editing photos. Favorite breakfast restaurant = Holybelly in Paris. Colorado hikes and mountain views. Anything and everything French. Nights on the couch with a good book. Online shopping at Free People. Cuddling my cockapoo, Rocky. Notre Dame student-athlete. Meaningful conversations > small talk. Finding beauty in simplicity. 

a few of my favorite things

kind words


"I can't express enough how thankful and happy I am that Cat was the one to photograph my wedding day! From our first phone conversation to the big day I was impressed by how friendly, put together, and thorough Cat was. I didn't have to worry for a second about anything, and on the wedding day Cat was so on top of things that she doubled as my second wedding director! She kept the day flowing, was detailed and thorough with each shot, and paid attention to specific poses that I had mentioned I would like. Not only were the photos phenomenal, but Cat was a joy to work with and I was amazed at how stress free the whole process was! I hope that every bride gets the privilege to work with a photographer who is as wonderful as Cat Murphy!"

"Cat is incredibly talented and an absolute joy to work with. She was quick and efficient taking numerous shots while keeping everyone on schedule which allowed the groom and I to enjoy the rest of our wedding reception. She also got a portion of our pictures back to us the VERY NEXT DAY and the rest of our pictures we received only a few weeks after. Beyond talented and so kind and personable. Would definitely recommend Cat for any special occasion photography."

"I could not be happier with Cat and her skills as a photographer! The photos were stunning! And when we got the photos back, (a few weeks early) I had the hardest time picking which photos to post, because they were all PERFECT! On top of the excellent quality, she was very professional, but at the same time, very personal. At the end of our wedding, my wife and I could confidently say that she was now our friend. If you’re looking for someone to take your wedding pictures, pick Cat, I promise you that you will be happy that you did."
