David and Linda spent years in the fast-track world of photojournalism and network news. David was named a Pulitzer Prize Finalist for his work in Haiti, and worked for many national publications including The New York Times, The Ft. Lauderdale News and Sun Sentinel and The Atlanta Journal and Constitution. Linda was a Peabody and Emmy award-winning foreign correspondent for ABC NEWS and CNN. After their son Ryan was born they moved to their beach house on the coast of Maine where they created David Murray Weddings. Five years ago they welcomed John to their studio as a principal photographer. Recently, David Murray Weddings expanded to include a studio in Atlanta, Georgia. Atlanta is second home to David and Linda as it is where they spent much of their careers. They now divide their time between Atlanta and New England. The couple that once covered wars together now spends time documenting the far more civilized social ritual of marriage.
