Kansas City Photographer: Joseph Sifuentes
When you see a photograph, what do you see? Maybe stunning artwork? Maybe a beautiful destination you dream of traveling to? What do you feel? Happiness? A desire for adventure? Excitement? Hope? I believe capturing an image that is pleasing to eye is great, but capturing an image that makes you feel something, stirs something inside of you, is even better. An image of a mother hugging her child while a single tear rolls down her face because she doesn’t want her baby to grow up too fast. An image of a husband seeing his wife come down the aisle in her beautiful gown knowing that he gets to spend his entire life by her side. An image of mountains with a morning haze resting over the peaks which brings back the joy of seeing a beautiful land. These are the images that I love to capture.
My name is Joseph Sifuentes. I am a photographer based out of Kansas City, Missouri. Currently my primary photography focus is families, love stories, and landscapes. As I move to making this my full-time career, I look forward to exploring new arenas of photography.
My passion and inspiration for photography began a few years ago during a time when I was traveling around the country. I saw beautiful scenery and met people from all over the world. I wanted to find a way to capture all of these moments that I was experiencing. I had always been interested in art, and now this was another way to explore my creativity. I discovered that there were stories in each new place that I went and with each new person that I met. Taking photos preserved these memories and retold these stories for me.
Fast forward a couple years, my wife, Kayla, and I had an idea to start our own business. I loved photography, and she loved writing. We combined both of our passions, and Untold Imagery was born. We believe that everyone has a story to tell, and we are using our gifts and talents to tell these stories. We capture compelling images that preserve memories and some of life’s greatest moments.
