AN ARTIST FIRST
I spent my years studying art through a constant love for beautiful things. Beginning with painting i would try and express the beauty that I saw in the world around me. However, I couldn’t ever quite express fully what I saw through painting though. So, I began photographing the world around me. After finding my love for photography I studied in the Fine Arts Program at Weber State University with a photo emphasis. This formal training helped me to combine my free (and sometimes weird) personality with an artistic expression.
MORE ABOUT ME!
My personal motto is enjoying life to its fullest! My absolute favorite places to be are on the edge of civilization. Surrounded by nature. Most of the summer you can find me at beautiful Lake Powell. Enjoying things like wake boarding, cliff jumping, and just cruising on the glassy water. The energy that is present as the sun sets while my favorite music is playing in the background is phenomenal. Snowboarding and skateboarding has been a life long passion and recently, after a move to Moab, Utah, I was introduced to the excitement of mountain biking.
My most prized blessing is an amazing woman that accepted my extraordinarily weird and outgoing personality. Plus she even keeps me a little grounded! She even gave me two of the most amazing children, Oliver and Sofia!
So if you love having a couple beers, relaxing in nature, or are constantly in search of adventure we will definitely get along!
PORTRAITS & WEDDING PHILOSOPHY
The goal of Moss Image…
…is to create a beautiful representation of you and your family while telling a unique story. Moss Image will incorporate beauty and passion into every moment that is captured.
What I love about doing portrait and wedding photography is the people I get to encounter. During a photo session we will laugh and smile. I always leave a photo shoot feeling more connected to the people I work with. Building relationships and seeing more of the world is an amazing blessing. I get to be a part of your special day and enjoy every minute of it!
With Photography, I try to incorporate the surrounding elements to frame the moment and tell a more complete story. I have often been told by clients that they love how I can incorporate the landscape within the image to create stunning images. But more than just composing an image to look good, portraiture is more than that. Like I said before, “everyone has their own unique beauty”. As the artist it is my job to realize that significant moment when your beauty shines through and capture those moments. I love interacting with people and realizing what makes them special and unique. Photography allows me to share that beauty with the world.
Especially with weddings clients have loved the option of having a “story book” wedding. Where I will photograph the day from start to finish. Here I will photograph both the bride and groom getting ready. I capture the craziness and chaos that is always present and then watch it all turn into the most perfect day of your life. This is all presented in an Archival Photo book that lets clients relive the day for generations to come!
Ask me for an example of a story book wedding! They are amazing!
DESTINATION + MOAB UTAH PHOTOGRAPHER
My name is Chris Moss, owner of Moss Image Photography.
I am a portrait and wedding photographer located in Moab, Utah. Moss Image is also skilled in marketing/commercial photography as well as Fine Art and landscapes. I absolutely love to travel. There is a huge world out there and I love taking every chance I get to see more of it! If you enjoy my work and feel like it fits what you are looking for but aren’t planning your wedding in Moab, I am open to travelling anywhere you want me to!
“We met Chris through my husband, our first shoot was for our family pictures. It turned out to be an amazing experience! My kids felt so comfortable with him! We went to two different locations that he had planned out. We loved that he had all these ideas for poses. He knew what looked good in pictures. Since then we have had him photograph our wedding, mommy daughter shoot, and pretty soon maternity pictures!”
“His creativity captured our wedding day with beautiful, unique photos. I loved that our pictures didn’t turn out generic and boring like others I have seen. Chris has also done our family pictures. He has captured darling pics of my son, which is no small feat since he was a busy toddler at the time.”
MOSS IMAGE USES FILM?
– Like old school real film.
Don’t be surprised if I show up to your wedding ceremony with a Medium Format film camera! While I shoot most shots digitally, there is still some inherent aesthetic value that film produces. If you choose a photography package that includes film, you will fall in love with the lasting results of one of a kind photographs.
