About Me

Hey y'all!  I'm so grateful that I get to live in New Orleans, a city that inspires me everyday to create authentic photographs and capture special moments in time. I truly love finding the beauty in everyone and I believe everyone deserves to share their story. Whether I’m photographing a couple, an expectant mother, or a famliy, my goal is that you leave feeling more love. My background in acting has given me a unique and personal take on capturing your photos. When I'm not working I enjoy impromptu dance parties with my daughter Charlie where costumes are encouraged!  I also enjoy watching Antiques Roadshow and eating fried chicken while drinking champagne! Don't judge, its AMAZING!!!

Sweet Words

"Casey had a focused, organic energy. As we moved from block to block, she had a keen eye for color and environment that created vibrant photos and celebrated our home. I loved that she captured our true energy - no staged photos here! Our shoes, our clothes, our relationship were all natural and realistic. She really managed to find moments of truth and beauty even with a toddler on the loose, and she kept a positive energy all morning. Our photographs are authentic and lovingly edited to bring out the best in us. I loved the sweetness and humor present. Thank you for such a wonderful experience, Casey! I can't wait to work with you again." - Adrienne Oliver 

Casey McMurray Photography is a New Orleans based photographer

"Magnolia May Photography in New Orleans took pictures of my 8 month old baby girl and a few family pictures. Casey is a talented photographer and a lot of fun to work with. She had creative ideas for great shots and worked very hard to capture beautifully lit candid images of my baby girl. Within 2 days of the shoot, she gave us a nice mix of candid and artistic photographs that far exceeded my expectations. Casey is very good with kids and was very patient with my daughter. The amount of time she spent with us was quite generous. She was happy to take a little break for the baby to eat and she moved quickly to make sure we got as much done as we could while the little one was awake and happy.

I had no idea what I wanted and Casey was happy to offer suggestions. She helped me choose outfits for the baby, myself, and my husband. I assumed a neutral palette would be best, but the rich color scheme she suggested really made for beautiful pictures. She selected different areas in and around our home based on lighting. I just love that the images were captured in the places we spend most of our time with our little lady - in our living room, on our porch swing, and walking through our neighborhood. Casey truly captured my daughter's little world at 8 months old and I couldn't be happier with the final product." - Megan Majoue
