" who works with the hands is a laborer, who works with the hands and the head is an artisan, who works with hands, the head and the heart is an artist "
Hola! , my name is Emilio Santamaria and I am a story teller, a keeper of moments, a historian, a lover of love… I am also, the eyes behind the lens and the hands behind Essense Photography. thanks for stopping by.
I have been drawn to visual arts since I can remember, my grandma used to say I would be a painter until ... I found a camera!!... Eventually I studied Photography in Mexico City where I was born, specializing in portraits and journalism, so I began my professional career as photojournalist, working and collaborating with different national and international prestigious publications such as: Revista PROCESO, MASTER MAGAZINE (of MasterCard) etc. This time of my life gave me invaluable life and professional experiences. I have had the privilege to work and learn with renowned photographers and I was even honored to exhibit some of my work in places as important as CENART (National Center for the Arts in Mexico City)
My style has been described as: Artistic Intimate Documentary. I truly believe in love, all kinds of it, unfolding in your day! … and, being able to capture your true “Essense” with my camera is a privilege. Working with couples who see our time together as an opportunity to create art completely inspires me.
I can’t wait to know more about you and your wedding day, after all, IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU!

We experienced Emilio as an extremely open, friendly and attentive professional from the first time we were in touch.Sent on 11/03/2017
He has taken all the time we needed to get to know him and he patiently took his time to understand what we were looking for. Above that, he knew how to touch on the perfect moments with all of our guests, ending up with fantastic and unforgettable memories of our special day.
Worth every penny and with a bonus of his extreme professional and relaxed attitude, ensuring all our guests had a great time and gladly sharing it with him. Thanks Emilio!

Emilio was amazing to work with through the wedding planning process. Living in Washington state and planning a wedding in Mexico, Emilio had phenomenal communication skills and would always respond with 24 hours or sooner. The day of the wedding we had a terrible rain storm and he did not let that effect the pictures he captured. Throughout the album Emilio sent us, you are able to see all of the fun and love between our friends and family on our special night. If you work with Emilio, you will not be sorry! Thank you for all you did for us on our special day Emilio!!!!Sent on 06/19/2018
