When you come to Moore Studios to have your portraits taken, we set aside your appointment time to focus on you and on creating the best portraits you have ever had taken. We work in a relaxed, informal atmosphere that will help you feel right at home in our studio.
Joel is very experienced at working with subjects of all ages. He does a great job capturing those subtle expressions of a newborn baby, playing "peek-a-boo" with a toddler to get that special look, and helping children relax and feel right at home by being as silly as they are. He has even been know to get a smile out of the toughest high school senior boys who insist that he "doesn't smile in pictures."
At Moore Studios, we understand how important your portraits are to you. They are the physical element that helps to preserve the memories of special times in your life.
That's why we place so much emphasis on quality. Your family deserves the finest portrait printed to the highest standards using the best materials available. We want your portraits from Moore Studios to become cherished family heirlooms!
We guarantee that you will love your portraits from Moore Studios. If we do not create the portraits that you are looking for, just tell and we will create more images at no charge or give you a full refund.
Joel Moore grew up working in his parent's photography studio in Leeds, Alabama. He was making pictures and working in the darkroom when he was 7 years old. He earned his first bicycle by doing a large photography job for a client. Joel's passion for photography lead him to pursue a degree in professional photography after high school. He graduated in 1981 from the Southeast School of Photography.
Joel moved to Auburn in 1988 where he continued his career in professional photography as the photographer for Auburn University. In 1989 he opened Moore Studios, photographing weddings and children's portraits. In 1994, Joel's work with Moore Studios had grown to the point that he left his position as photographer for Auburn University to pursue his business with Moore Studios full time. In 1996 Moore Studios relocated to a larger and more convenient location on East University Drive in Auburn.
Joel's photography has been chosen for awards in professional photography competitions over 30 times.
