Why IVs Photography?

I’m not going to bore you with cooking cutter blurbs about how passionate I am about photography and why I love it. This is my life, this is what I have developed myself around, of course I freakin’ love seeing happy people do happy things on their wedding days. Instead, I’ll keep it real with you and cut to why exactly I’m the best photographer for your wedding day. I believe in loving the people closest to you, dedicating time to perfecting craft, and most importantly making bad ass images for bad ass couples. My name is Ian Santiago and I am a Hilton Head Island, South Carolina based wedding and engagement photographer. I would be honored to be the best third wheel you’ve ever hired.

  1. A No bullshit Approach

    I’m not here to impress you with unlimited this or unlimited that. Lets be honest here, there is very little in packages that set apart photographers. BUT, what I do know is that my approach works. With every couple I ensure that we CLICK (pun intended). When you hire me for your wedding I’m not a one and done deal. I want to make sure that I understand you as a person. Seriously, I’m your hype man for your ENTIRE wedding party and family for one of the BIGGEST days of your life. I take that seriously. Set up a phone call or meeting with me to see how you actually feel with me - because chances are that’s probably how you’re going to feel on your wedding day.

  2. Understanding of Tradition & Customization

    Yes, I’m a photographer, yes i’m very artsy fartsy. BUT, I understand family traditions and I work very hard to make sure that I am being open to your ideas and family customs. Communication is key and I absolutely refuse to miss a beat on your wedding day. From family groupings to the little details, I have your back.

    Now, when it comes to designing your package I believe in full customization. I don’t want to lie to you, and I definitely don’t want to sell you anything you don’t need. I offer 4 different luxury collections as a starting point and then we customize those. Get in touch with me and I will gladly work with you to design your optimal wedding package. Why settle for less, or be forced into a certain mold on your wedding day? You expect customization in your car, your home, heck, even the way your wedding is going to look. Let’s make sure that my photography services fit you perfectly.

  3. Prints. Prints. Prints. Oh ya, and Albums

    I CANNOT stress this enough. As we move forward we are starting to lose touch of the physical aspect of photography. Digital files. Yes, I include those. I also include print credits as well as wedding albums to make sure that your day is a day to be remembered. A day to sit around your fireplace with your children in 10 years. No one is ever going to say “Hey wanna sit down on the couch and browse through these awesome digital files?” Prints and albums are timeless. Plus if we ever run into a zombie apocalypse you wont lose those files, lets hope that never happens. :)
