Paola Santander is a photojournalist serving the great city of Boston and the surrounding areas. She specializes in wedding photography, capturing precious family moments and business portraits.

Her passion for photography began when she was introduced to her father's photo albums as a young child. As she thumbed through the vintage photos plastered on yellowed pages, she felt as if she had been given a front row seat as she traveled through time and got to know the man he was before he was her father. She enjoyed photos of him with his friends as they enjoyed summer afternoons, was touched by moments captured around the family dinner table at holidays and was mesmerized by the simple photos that showed a smiling young man with the same eyes that she had come to know so well. She realized then that pictures are more than a moment captured with a click and a flash. A picture has the power to lock in an emotion, a feeling, a wish and a dream, not just for the person in the picture but for everyone else who ever stumbles upon it. As soon as she was old enough, she grabbed a camera and hasn't stopped clicking since.

If you are looking for a photographer to capture your next memory, whether it will serve a greater purpose today or years from now, Paola has a set of skills that she has developed over the past ten years, strengthened by an educational background that boasts credentials from Northeastern University and New England School of Photography, that will provide you with just the photo you are looking for. Whether it's immortalizing your first dance at your wedding, improving the appearance of your business on social media with a professional photo shoot or finding a way to preserve the gentle glow that surrounds your newborn as he sleeps, Paola can provide you with a final product that is achieved through a wonderful experience.

When Paola isn't behind her camera, you can cheer her on as she runs her next 5K or half marathon. If she's already crossed the finish line, she can be found spending time with her daughter Alexandra, who lights up her life and pushes her to succeed in everything that she takes on. Paola also enjoys traveling and meeting new people, a hobby that continuously fills her soul with inspiration.
