Hi, I am Wayne Murphy.

I love snowboarding powder days in the winter and fishing streams in the summer. I believe in smiling and saying hi to strangers. I love it when people light up as they share their own passions and creative ideas with me and we both can get excited about them. The best part is, there is a little glimpse of that moment that we get to keep forever. A defining split second that we can look back on again and again to remember. It’s an awesome feeling. I am truly blessed to work in the photographic industry, I am an artist and I have the best job ever!

Love what you do


I am honored to have earned the Certified Professional Photographer designation in September 2012 and is the only Certified Professional Photographer in Flathead County, Montana. With this designation, you may be assured that I will produce the best possible images from your wedding or portrait session.

So, what is a Certified Professional Photographer? A Certified Professional Photographer (or CPP) is a designation that is granted by the Photographic Certification Commission, the world's leading certification agency of imaging professionals.

When you hire a photographer, you want the best. Unfortunately, anyone can claim to be a professional photographer – so ensuring that you get the best photographer for the job can be a difficult task.

Each photographer who proudly shows the Certified logo has earned their Certification after meeting rigorous requirements measuring their artistic and technical competence, including a comprehensive written exam, and have also successfully submitted their work to a panel of judges for review and approval.

I am so proud to be among the less than 8% of all imaging professionals who have successfully completed and maintained the requirements.

Every five years, I must renew my Certified credentials by participating in continuing education programs and periodically submitting work for critical evaluation. This helps assure you that as a Certified photographer, I maintain a level of expertise and continue to develop new skills and techniques.
