I’m a wife to a great guy and a mom to two of the prettiest girls west of the Mississippi… I might be a bit biased, but not much. I like my wine red and my champagne dry. I don’t even pretend to like reading but I do enjoy some quality British television.
My once upon a time part of this story takes place in high school when I was looking for a creative outlet and our local homeschool co-op offered a class in photography. I borrowed my parents circa 1970’s Minolta film camera and signed up.
After high school, I saved my graduation money and purchased my first camera. What had started out as a hobby, and something to do for fun, quickly became not only my job but something I knew that was going to be part of my life for a very long time.
I was attending college to pursue a degree in Music Education but with only one class left before graduating with that degree I switched to Oklahoma State University to study photography. I should probably go back and get that class credit one of these days but right now all I’m using my music background for is dancing in the kitchen with my hubby or playing the piano for my music-loving kiddos. I do secretly still harbor the dream of singing on Broadway one day. It’s top of my bucket list.
I opened Andrea Murphy Photography in 2008 and I’ve been working with the best clients ever since. I photograph people of all ages, shapes, and sizes in need of high-end, timeless wedding photography and portraiture. My style is classic and my number one job is to make you as comfortable as possible in front of my camera to accurately capture your personality. You just smile and I’ll do the rest of the work.
