About Me

I’m Kearnan Murphy, a photographer, and videographer based in Wellington, New Zealand. I specialise in wedding, surf, lifestyle, travel and event photography. I have always been fascinated with creating mementos of my life through photography and have  been photographing adventures for the last decade, travelling around the world capturing unforgettable places, epic surf and interesting people.  

Looking for a wedding photographer?

My natural, documentary style means I capture the special moments of the day as they happen. It’s often the fleeting moments of raw feeling, in between the big moments, that truly capture the essence. I have a calm and relaxed nature, which people say helps them feel at ease around me, and allows me to capture the day unobtrusively. If this sounds like what you are looking for, please get in touch. I would love to work with you!


"I have just purchased 'House in the Clouds' from Kearnan. It is giving me a great amount of pleasure, and I am also delighted with the framing and delivery of my purchase. I highly recommend this photographer." – Ann Nichols, Brisbane

"We did our pregnancy photo shoot with Kearnan. The images are absolutely beautiful - exactly what we wanted. Kearnan has a talent for capturing the moment and getting natural shots without making it look posed or forced. Kearnan made us feel so relaxed and comfortable during the shoot, we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Thank you for capturing such a special time in our lives so perfectly." – Natalie Hall, Sydney

"Kearnan photographed our wedding - he was excellent, very professional, and we were extremely happy with our photos. He was very relaxed among all the chaos a wedding can bring, and managed to take a collection of photos that represented the day perfectly. Would recommend to anyone!"  – Tom Haanen, Wellington
