A photography experience like no other.
Who are we?
You know your family better than anyone, and it’s important to you that they feel relaxed and totally at-ease with whomever you choose to photograph them. You’re looking for a friendly photographer with a studio that’ feels like you're at home, instead of intimidating, where they’ll be able to have fun and be themselves in front of the camera because you know those are the times when they produce the most adorable and treasured portraits. We are Dermot & Catherine Murphy, a husband and wife team with four children of our own and we like to think we know a thing or two about what it takes to create a great photograph. We are seven-time Professional Photography Association of Northern Ireland Award Winners including the Northern Ireland Photographer of the Year Trophy.
State of the Art Family Photography Studio in the Heart of Belfast.
Our state of the art Family Photography Studio is situated just off the Malone Road in the beautiful University quarter of Belfast alongside an eclectic mix of restaurants, cafes, shops, and bars. It’s one of the social and artistic hubs of the city with Stranmillis village; Queens University, Queen’s Film Theatre, Ulster Museum, Lyric Theatre, and a host of galleries and eating establishments all within a short walk. There is so much you can do nearby once you have left us. A trip to the park, a visit to the museum or a leisurely coffee or beautiful meal.
Totally stress free, lovely experience
Dermot and Catherine are extremely talented and has an eye for seeing things that will make absolutely fantastic pictures. Both Dermot and Catherine also have a wonderful personality and is able to make you feel completely calm and at ease
My almost 5 yr old loved her time in Dermot and Catherine's studio. She was treated like a Princess from start to finish. The entire hour flowed very naturally and I've no idea how they did it, but they managed to get her to sit still and pose beautifully. It was fascinating to see them gently bring out the best in Erin. The end results were some stunning photos!
We decided to get our first family portrait taken for my Mum's 60th. Mum does not like fuss or being the centre of attention, but both Catherine and Dermot made her feel extremely relaxed and at ease. It was the perfect start to a special day.
We loved the personal service offered by both Dermot and Catherine, not only great photography but a beautiful and heart warming experience during the session with our newborn son and 3 year old boy!
