Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Yes, using Lightroom and Photoshop I create a handful of Signature Edits. These are generally the photos that are printed as wall art and used in albums.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Yes, we are very comfortable in most any lighting situation. Our camera of choice is a Nikon D4 and it has very good low light capabilities.
Is your media preference film or digital?
I started shooting with film over 20 years ago and couldnt help the move to digital with its endless creative freedom
How many photographers do you work with?
My wife and a small hand full of second shooters around the Flathead Valley
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes, unless Im deathly ill or hit by a train I'll be there.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
NEVER in the same day and very rarely in the same weekend.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I dont have a dedicated replacement photographer but have great relationships with several other pros in the Glacier / Flathead area that I can call if ever needed.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
My main setup is a Nikon D4 with 2 fast Nikkor prime lenses that I love dearly and a fast 70-200 2.8 Nikkor Zoom. I also bring a few flashes, light stands and light modifiers: umbrellas and softboxes. I probably bring along more gear than the average wedding photographer. Most of it may stay in the car but I just never know when I might need just the right tool.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
YES, without fail I have a Nikon D700 that I use as a backup body.

How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
I post a gallery of my 20 favorite photos from the event within 48 hours as a sneak peek. The remaining photos are usually ready in about 2 weeks but never more than 4 weeks. It depends a lot on the time of year and if it is at the height of the wedding season in Glacier.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
In studio presentation or an on line gallery for out of the area couples.

Yes, I do use the photos for promotion and for publication but never for sale without permission. The client receives a photo print release that allows them printing rights for personal use.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?

Wayne was AWESOME! We couldn't have asked for a better photographer. We loved his open and willing attitude towards all of the ideas we had for pictures. He was very flexible and professional thru-out the wedding planning process as well as the wedding day. Even when we fell behind our timeline on our wedding day Wayne was able to capture all the photos we requested and then some. Wayne is a very personal and heartfelt person and it defiantly reflects in his work! Its nice to have someone care so much about your special day and making it be the best it possibly can, even down to the placement of your hair :). For any future life events JMK Photography is our go to choice!

We are thrilled with the services that we got. We chose JMK Photography for lack of other options and internet presence from other vendors. I was confident that it would be perfect because of all of the reviews and the pictures I saw online. Everything went great. Wayne knew all of the info that we didn't know. He knew the perfect place to have the ceremony and all the most beautiful places to take pictures. I was dumbfounded when my husband and I walked out of Many Glacier Hotel to see that Wayne had situated our 5 guests perfectly in a tiny rock cove with the majestic valley as their backdrop for the ceremony. It was absolutely perfect.

Right from the beginning, my husband, mom and I were very pleased with the level of service that Wayne provided. We live in Florida, but have a house in Montana and wanted to get married out in Glacier National Park. Montana is such a special place to Joe and I and we thought it would be the perfect place to get married. Wayne was very responsive and dedicated to making everything perfect for our big day. When our wedding day actually arrived Wayne went above and beyond what Joe and I had ever anticipated. We had been in numerous weddings at many different venues in Florida and Wayne was by far the best wedding photographer we had contact with! His creativity, patience and hard work are unsurpassed. When we saw a sample of some of our shots, we could not believe how beautiful they are! Wayne captures everything about the moment and captures the perfect image to have as a lasting memory of your wedding day. Wayne truly made our wedding day everything we had hoped for and I can't wait to see the rest of our wonderful images from our big day!

Wayne officiated our elopement on July 14th at Glacier National Park. Wayne was very quick to respond to e-mails and answer phone calls. We weren't sure of the exact ceremony and vows we wanted to use so Wayne put the perfect ceremony together for us and we could've have been more pleased! He added so many personal touches that really catered to the type of couple we are. It couldn't have been more perfect :) We would highly recommend Wayne as a marriage officant.

When my fiance' and I found JMK Photography, we had only been engaged maybe a few weeks. And after the initial meeting, we knew we were done looking. The services and prices were right with our wedding budget, but it was the kindness and overall impression we got from owner, Wayne Murphy that sealed the deal. Great communication and professionalism. I always felt comfortable and I love my wedding photos. I would highly recommend JMK Photography to anyone looking for a stress free photo session, beautiful wedding pictures, or any other photo needs. I will be forever grateful for JMK capturing our memories! Thank you Wayne!

All i have to say is WOW! We honestly could not have asked for anything more! Wayne has produced the best pictures I have seen from a wedding yet (and I've been to a lot of weddings) and was amazingly pleasant, friendly, relaxing and accommodating in the process! From helping us coordinate the day of schedule, posting a set of stellar photos quickly after the event, to helping us rush a couple prints for our family who was leaving for Scotland days after the wedding, we could not have asked for some one better to work with!

I strongly recommend Wayne for your special photos, whatever they may be, and can guarantee you will not be disappointed! :)

The newlywed session also included hiking 3 miles to our favorite waterfall! He was so flexible, professional and cheerful throughout all the shoots. I could not be more pleased with everything he has done for us!! Now we have spectacular pictures and made a new friend! I highly recommend Wayne Murphy with JMK photography for ANYTHING you need.

JMK Photography did a fabulous job at our daughter's wedding this past July. We live in Georgia and we found them on-line. Our communication was through e-mail and phone, which worked great. My daughter and her husband met Wayne in Glacier for their engagements pictures and truly enjoyed the experience and the photos.
Wayne and Vicki went above and beyond in their role as our photographers at the wedding. They took so many interesting photographs, using a lot of cool angles, effects, etc. They were both so easy and comfortable to work with. It was amazing how well they interacted with the wedding party and the families on both sides. They went above and beyond what was expected - for example, Vicki found a golf cart for the girls to ride on instead of walking a great distance to the ceremony site. She also was able to talk a Red Bus driver into driving the bride, bridesmaids, and father of the bride to the ceremony. What a great entrance they made!
Wayne was not only our main photographer, but he was also our officiant. He was at our rehearsal helping us put together the order of ceremony, which went extremely well. The wedding day he did a great job of officiating the service, and everything flowed together so well.
I would highly recommend both Wayne and Vicki for your wedding. They were easy to work with and they worked so hard. It was sad to say good-bye at the end of the night!

First off, we would love to say Thank You so much to Wayne for doing our wedding photography! It was such a pleasure working with you! It was such a blessing that you had every detail planned out for which photos needed to be done, but also allowing us to pick and choose ones we wanted as well. My family not only enjoyed your company and professionalism, but you felt like one of the family! We were so happy that you put pictures up on Facebook within a couple days for the family to see. And having that DVD to print off our own pictures (which only took a few weeks) has made sharing photographs with the family so affordable! The quality of these photos was amazing! I will definitely be recommending you to my friends, especially the ones getting married in the distant future :) Thank you so much again for all your hard work!

He was patient with our crazy family and so creative with the space and extreme sunshine we had to work with.He worked great with our florist and wedding coordinator! He got all the shots we wanted including staying a bit later to get the water shots my husband and I wanted later in the evening. He got some great shots of our family dancing and an amazing shot of my dad and I doing the poka:) Wayne and Vicky are wonderful people who would make your wedding day complete by having them do your photos. They have hearts of gold and are not only great photographers but great parents! I highly recommend JMK photography!

Wayne was great to work with from the beginning. Although I grew up in Montana, we were planning the wedding from Wisconsin, and he was very responsive and great with suggestions on how to organize the photography. He was also incredibly patient with our laid-back, time-is-flexible approach to getting the photos done on the day of the wedding. He was full of good humor and good ideas the whole day. The final photos were all we could have wished. We were very happy with our choice of photographers.

I'm from IL and planned a destination wedding in Glacier National Park. I did a search for photographers in Montana and came across JMK's website. The photos Wayne has on his site are amazing. I contacted him about doing my wedding. I was really nervous about the whole process because with doing a destination wedding AND doing most everything over the internet, I was always worried about "is this even a real business?" "am I going to get scammed?" If you're doing a destination wedding, have no fear!..JMK is an actual business. Wayne went out of his way to make our day as perfect as possible! He traveled all the way from East Glacier to meet us in Whitefish where we were staying at. He continued taking pictures even in the rain on our wedding day! He listens to what you want and captures that for you. Our wedding photos are beyond real! Our next trip out to Montana, we will be contacting Wayne to come do a photo shoot of us in Glacier!

My daughter wanted to get married in Glacier National Park, Montana. We're from Illinois and the arrangements were all made via phone and internet. Considering the importance of the wedding and the factor of dealing with people we'd never met to pull off the big day, I will admit I was apprehensive to say the least. Other than a little rain, the wedding went pretty smoothly (Wayne actually decided to use an umbrella as a photo prop). Wayne Murphy at JMK Photography did a first class job of assessing the needs of the wedding and then tying it all together to showcase the natural beauty of the setting. Since we weren't familiar with the area, we followed Wayne to the Park and got a little lost and missed the wedding planner and minister. Since there is no cell phone service in the area, panic was starting to set in. Wayne kept his cool and found us a landline phone so connections could be made with the wedding planner and minister and we got back on track quickly. JMK Photography would be highly recommended for anyone needing photographic services in his area.

Wayne and Vicki Murphy are the most delightful, accommodating, professional, skilled, and lovely-to-be-with photographers we have ever worked with, and we have a great deal of experience with professional photographers. We traveled from Kentucky to Glacier in Montana for our intimate, sweet little wedding, and Wayne and Vicki literally MADE the evening wonderfully easy and memorable for us. We have images from that night that we can enjoy well into our 90s! There is no one to have but JMK for your photography, and you will be thrilled with their work!

Since I am a photographer, being in front of the lens (rather than behind it) is unnerving. They put me more at ease than I have ever been in a shoot before in my entire life. They are THE ones to hire for images you will always love and cherish!

JMK Photography is the best wedding photography I could have had! Wayne and Vicki are so much fun to work with and they are very awesome people! Thank you so much for making the memories of my wedding so beautiful!! They handled things professionally and had great attitudes.

My fiance and I scheduled our wedding for Oct. 10, picturing a perfect sunny autumn day. Well, the weather can certainly change on a moments notice, and it did. On our wedding day we woke up to snow, clouds and 20 degree temperatures. Wayne and Vicki at JMK Photography immediately went to work scouting out alternate shoot locations. They were able to coordinate the wedding parties and family members effortlessly, ensuring we got all the photos (and more!) that we asked for. Their team approach to the shoot helped everything move along at a good pace, and most of all they really made the shots fun for everyone involved. Wayne and Vickis professionalism is apparent in the proofs as well; we were very pleased with the results. ~ Terri and Eric Rhame

My husband and I looked around Missoula and couldnt find anyone that we felt fit us. JMK was suggested by a friend so we called them up and they not only met with us, but drove all the way to Missoula to meet with us! So needless to say we hired them.From every detail of spending extra time at the venue to make sure they had the lighting just right, to helping me hide out from the masses, Wayne and Vicki went above and beyond! Our pictures came out beautiful. They caught every special moment as well as all the funny ones that you miss when youre the bride and groom. Then after the wedding was over the printed out a picture for us to have that evening! Amazing people! If I had to do it all over again I would most certainly hire them, no questions asked! Thanks Wayne and Vicki for making our day so special! ~ Trinda and Jon Rieck

Wayne and Vicki were amazing to work with. Wayne's excitement and energy helped make getting through all the required wedding photos enjoyable and fun. Vicki was very organized and kept things moving so that we were able to join our guests not too long after our ceremony ended. I've only seen a few of the wedding photos, but I understand what Wayne was so excited about. They are amazing!! I can't wait to see more. Wayne has a great understanding of lighting and takes creative and beautiful photographs. I highly recommend JMK Photography.

Wayne Murphy ROCKS! He was exactly what we were looking for in a photographer as he went with the flow of our semi-nontraditional Greek wedding. Wayne was professional in his manner with the PERFECT amount of personality. Our guests and family made comments throughout the wedding (and several days after): "your photographer was so nice" and "don't worry, Wayne got a picture of that". Our wedding day was truly captured through Wayne's lens and we will cherish our timeless images. OPAAA!!!
Thank you SO VERY MUCH!!!

To anyone who might be thinking about utilizing Wayne and Vicki Murphey of JMK Photography, you must read on. Choosing a photgrapher for an event as special as a wedding is a decision that should not be made lightly. After all, you only get one chance, one moment, one instant of emotion that must be captured to share with all. Wayne is the type of person that understands this and has provided us with incredible images that we will be able to enjoy and share with our family and friends.

As a groom I write this review saying that Wayne understands the value of the day being about your bride, and that she needs to feel very special. I can not count the times that my now wife has talked about how great of a time she had with Wayne and Vicki throughout the course of our wedding.

Wayne was willing to go the extra mile for us no mater what it was that we requested of him. He had great ideas and was very artistic with his photography. I'm sure that every bride and groom would probable say the same thing, but the pictures that Wayne and Vicki took of our wedding are the most beautiful wedding pictures we have ever seen.

I can not thank the Murphey's enough for all of the hard work and the level of expertise and tallent that you were able to share with us. We are JMK Photography customers for life.
