Welcome to Santos² Photography!
We are Briano and Dominique Santos, husband and wife, newlyweds for over three years now, best friends, and owners of Santos² Photography, a family-run business serving the San Francisco Bay Area. For us, photography is not just a business or a hobby, but the very thing that brought us together. In 2007, after six years of friendship, we met as friends to practice our skills with the new cameras we had each "coincidentally" purchased. In that first meeting, we spent several hours setting up shots and talking shop, laughing, smiling, and having fun… love developed from a snapshot and the rest, as they say, is history.
Several years later, we still love to get together and take pictures. We believe that our strengths as photographers (and people) compliment each other greatly. As a technology and aviation buff, “buttons” and the technical side of things have always intrigued Briano. As an artist and art teacher, Dominique finds joy in tapping into her creative side. And, when you meet us, we hope you'll see immediately that we both love people! For us, photography is not just a career, but a great way for us to practice our passions together and celebrate the precious moments of life.
We strive to offer creative images at an affordable price. Please contact us regarding pricing for weddings, engagements, family portraits, newborns, seniors and yes, even aerial photography. We look forward to meeting you in person and making you fall in love with the thing that made us fall in love.
Your friends at Santos²,
-Briano & Dominique Santos
Our Photography Style:
-Emotion trumps tradition!!! Portraits that communicate the feelings of life and evoke emotion are the ones we all cherish the most. Our focus is capturing you, your life and the moment. Technical excellence is a necessity in photography, but it has it's place... we believe that place is a close second to capturing life, love and emotion.
-We cover weddings & events with a "hybridized photojournalistic approach." We work in the moment and shoot on location as the events unfold. To better serve the needs of our clients, we also offer some direction in more traditional posing. This approach, containing both traditional and photojournalistic elements lends itself to capturing wonderfully timeless and contemporary photography. Our hope is that our clients will look at their images for years to come and still feel like they were shot just yesterday.
-Engagement, Family & Senior portraits are covered from a lifestyle and traditional approach, using a combination of candid & environmental portrait photography.
-While we prefer to photograph using natural light, we are well equipped for the various lighting scenarios we may encounter, which may require the use of off camera flash and light-modifying tools.
Your photos should be about you, so we work where you are. We will meet with you on location: downtown, in a field, your favorite park, on a trail, in your home or backyard. Using the world around us as our 'studio,' the sky becomes our backdrop, the sun our strobe, and the San Francisco/Bay Area our playground.
