Investment Information

Your Investment


My wedding coverage is set up so that we’re free to roll with it on the day – there are no hourly limits. I arrive while you’re getting ready, and stay through the main reception events. And if you’d like to spend a few hours making awesome portraits in multiple locations, I’m there!

I’ve realized that you can’t bundle up a full day of action and emotion into a neat little package of four, six, or eight hours. To me, each wedding is a collection of stories, moments, and events, sometimes colliding, always unpredictable. I want to be there to capture it all.

So, what’s included? Signature coverage includes photography of your wedding day, from getting ready through the dancing, and a beautiful online proofing site where you can view and share your wedding photos, order prints, and select favorites for your album. I also include a second photographer from the ceremony through the main reception events. I fiercely believe in the importance of printed images and albums, and the high resolution edited files are included with any album collection.

A la carte, albums begin at $499, and $999 depending on mounting. Also available to add are engagement sessions, parent books, and lots of fun print products.

Coverage by international award winning Kansas City based wedding photographer Josh Santiago starts at $1,750. Most couples working with Josh invest between $2,500 and $5,000 in their wedding photography. Please contact Josh for full pricing, or to custom build a collection that fits your needs.


Destination Weddings


For local destination weddings more than 75 miles outside of Kansas City, there is a mileage fee at, 65.5 cents per mile. For weddings in Topeka, St. Louis, Tulsa, and Colombia Areas, I require two nights’ accommodation, the night before and night of your wedding. This is so that I’m not battling busy weekend traffic on your wedding day; I’d rather wake up refreshed so that I can provide you with the best possible coverage!

For true destination weddings, please contact me for a quote. My quote will include direct economy class flights to your destination, and a minimum of three nights’ accommodation. For destinations more than a three hour flight from Kansas City, I usually require additional nights.

*Signature coverage begins with (at least) one hour of getting ready photos, and ends two hour after dinner ends. All prices subject to KS State sales tax at current rates.
