About The Photographer

Josh Santiago

Kansas City Wedding, Portrait Photography - Josh Santiago
My name is Josh Santiago. I have an obsession with weddings and portraits… moments, and the ability for photographs to bring you right back and overwhelm you with the emotion and nostalgia of that very same flash of an instant. Nothing is more powerful to me than a photograph. I see my “job” as a very important one. I’m a memory keeper. The way in which I photograph your memories, impact how you will see and remember them forever.

I feel that your photographs should accurately represent the real life moments and feelings that you have at any given time and place. This is why I describe myself as a creative documentary/lifestyle photographer. I will guide you into beautiful lighting scenarios (so you can look your best) and then let the moments unfold without much interference. This allows us to get the raw reactions and emotions which really show who you are.

That doesn’t mean we don’t do any posed photographs- for these are essential as well. But even in the posed portraits, I often times have you interacting with one another in such a way to make you both comfortable and really capture your extraordinary love and personality. I’ve always thought that people are their most beautiful selves when they are interacting with those they love. They have a glow and light about them that is incomparable. That is why these photos are my favorite! I blend together beautiful lighting, your natural interactions, (as well as some direction) and together we celebrate life’s best moments and make them last forever

I am blessed to be selected for so many families (that quickly become friends) to photograph such beautiful and precious moments in their lives. Would you like to be next? Head on over to my Contact page to get in touch! I would love to work with you, and be sure to follow me on social media!
