A Fine Art Destination Wedding Photographer 


Being a wedding photographer requires the mastery of understanding their place in the day. How the clients are feeling emotionally as moments unfold. To give, or withdraw direction. To let moments unfold, or to facilitate and keep the timeline in check. Ian Santiago is not good at what he does because he takes good photographs. He's a professional wedding photographer because he dreams to be a master of his craft. To never stop growing and pushing the boundaries that exist on the modern wedding photographer. Ian strives to blend a photojournalistic style with direction when direction is needed.

Being more Human

"Ian's eye for good light, beautiful backdrops, and making everyone look absolutely stunning is a true and remarkable talent. He was easy to work with, responsive, and truly interested in understanding family dynamics to make for the best experience."

- Christen & Rick | Belfair Clubhouse, 2019

 More human being,
                  less human doing. 


My photographic process requires trust between my clients and myself. As such, I encourage having the opportunity to break bread together. Being  a wedding photographer is being human at its most basic form. Attentive to the world and being accepted by the family I'm covering, is vital to successful coverage. So, at some point along this process you can bet we are at least going to grab a beer or glass of wine to get better acquainted before the actual wedding day.

More human being, less human doing.
