Hello there! We are Carissa & Ben Moore, and welcome to our page! We are a husband and wife photography team based in the high desert of New Mexico. We love the southwest and we want to show off its unique, dramatic, landscape and surreal beauty! As much as we love where we live, we also dig it when people invite us to their neck of the woods to explore someplace new. We will definitely take any opportunity to travel!
We’d love to get to know you. We’ll go first to break the ice:
We are interested in way too many things! Some of which include: Brewing and drinking craft beer and kombucha, our dogs, the Moon, coffee and tea, movies about things that make you cry (like Mr. Rogers), comedy, super good TV… and also photography!
Since we met in a photography class in college (in Albuquerque, New Mexico), an ever present connection between us in our relationship has been photography. We’re also extroverted introverts, so in order to connect with others, we often use our artwork. The introverted side of us is always inspired by how other people interact with each other, how they express their personal intimacy with each other. the extroverted side of us tells jokes, brings a flask, and is ready to party! Somewhere in the middle there resides our passion for connection, expression, and an interest in capturing something new. This is why we are interested in working with people and creating art. We love capturing big moments and tiny details. We like letting people feel feelings, and think there is something special there to document. We subtly pose our clients because we want to see what you are all about, naturally.
Photographing weddings is huge. It’s one of the biggest, most expensive, emotional, and meaningful days in most peoples’ lives. The intimacy of the day can be really intimidating, and that’s why we love it. We are honored that someone would ask us to be there with them, in a room with only their mom and their dress. we are honored that someone trusts us to work on photographs they will look at the rest of their lives.
The biggest honor is when we create a real connection with those we work with. We can’t express our gratitude that you want us there during your first kiss as a married couple. We are ecstatic that you’d want us to do a shot with you before you run off to show off your best dance moves! And so we want you to know that when we show up to your wedding, we’re showing up for you. Your wedding day is huge, and we don’t take that lightly.
We believe that photography is more than ones and zeros on a hard drive or just a collection of images. It is something that can bring you back to a moment. It is something that lets you see the world in a different light. It is something that tells a story.
We would be honored to be part of your story.
Thanks for stopping by.
