We believe that photographs are a way to relive the moment, they take you back to not just a place and time, but to the feelings and emotions, hopes, and dreams, you experienced in that moment. Our goal is to create a family archive, something that 30 years from now your grandchildren will look through, asking to hear the stories.  Your life and memories deserve to be more than a digital file, but a work of art that will be cherished for years to come.

Engagements & Proposals

Capturing your engagement photographs is just as important as your wedding; they show off your more informal side in your natural surrounding. We strive to capture that intimate spark that brought you two together. You should also consider making your proposal memorable and part of the story as a couple. Working as a photojournalist has taught me many things about hiding in plain sight, but rest assured, I’ll be there for that special moment when you pop the question.

Photography isn’t about taking a good photo, it’s about capturing the soul, emotion, and story.

J. Santiago Photography is a Kansas City based photography studio, that was started by Joshua Santiago. We focus on capturing a wide range of events, moments, and details. From the time at I began work on this company, I knew that the most important thing would be capturing great images. Capturing images that not only challenged the status quo but we’re something that people were excited to see and wanted to see more of.

So, no matter what, if it’s weddings, engagements, seniors, family, events, headshots, real estate or commercial photography in the Kansas City area. We’re going to strive to capture it in a way that makes it stand out and makes a memory that lasts for many years to come. I’ve been fortunate to be selected by several families to be their lifetime photographer. These are what I strive for, I don’t want to just take photographs. I want to capture memories that are passed from generation to generation.
